A Place Where Young People Are Treasured

A Place Where Young People Are Treasured Mike Fitzpatrick | Mark 10 I started working with students about 27 years ago…which makes me feel pretty old, by the way. When I began, there was a family that I had become close to. They were quiet, creative, funny dudes, and we would hang out a lot. They liked to play video games, their favorite being Goldeneye, which was a first-person shooter game based on the James Bond characters. I was most definitely NOT a gamer, so I would lose - badly. They would usually sit in church

A Place Where Authenticity Is Honored | Pastor Dennis Miller

A Place Where Authenticity Is Honored   Dennis Miller // Matthew 23:25-27   My life is far too short to spend it playing some phony game of spirituality. Jesus called out the Pharisees, a religious group during Jesus’ day, for not being real. They wanted others to see them as special and treat them as though they were closer to God than anyone else.

A Place Where Serving Transforms Communities | Pastor Mike Fitzpatrick

Welcome Home: A Place Where Serving Transforms Communities Mike Fitzpatrick | Romans 12 Early in his life, Paul was one of the foremost opponents of Jesus and his followers. However, God did a massive work in his life to the extent that many of his subsequent writings became foundational to our beliefs as Christians. These writings take the form of letters. Most of the letters Paul wrote have to do with correcting some sort of false teaching that had crept into the church, or to reprimand some group of believers who were misbehaving in some way, shape,

A Place Where The Wounded Are Healed

THE WOUNDED ARE HEALED Dennis Miller | Luke 10:30-33 “I’m banged up.” “I’m hurt.” “I’m bleeding and bruised.” “Could somebody help fix me? Could somebody give me some healing?” The Church is a trauma center, an ER, where hurting people, wounded people can be healed. A place where the Great Physician gets a hold of bruised hearts and makes them whole again. We can learn three things about this from the story of the Good Samaritan. Jesus said: "A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he fell into the hands of robbers. They stripped him of
