SERMON SERIES: NO MORE ISLANDS

SERIES DESCRIPTION:

What if there was one thing more crucial to survival than food, water, or shelter? Would you want to know what it was? 

In this series, we'll explore something we all desperately need: relationship. Specifically, we'll look at how relationships help us get smarter, survive success, savor pain, and create legacy.


PART 1: DO I HAVE SOMETHING IN MY TEETH?

Got any blind spots? You know--areas where you're already acting foolishly and either don't know it or have found ways to justify it?

We've all got 'em. And worst of all, we don't know even what they are! Thankfully, God has a plan for that. In this message, we'll take a look at what it is.

9/7/14  Speaker: Justin Gerhardt


PART 2: PASS IT ON

You know thing inside you that wants to have “made a difference”? That thirst for a life that matters? That desire in you is no accident; it was placed there by God.

Your life does matter. You do have things to offer. Because God has things to do through you.

PART 3: BEAUTY AMIDST THE WRECKAGE

Many of us see pain as something to be avoided at all costs. God, though, has a different perspective. One that allows us not just to stop running from pain, but to savor it (yes, savor it). Sound crazy? The Apostle Paul didn't seem to think so...


PART 4: HOW NOT TO LET SUCCESS BECOME YOUR GREATEST FAILURE

It’s easy to lean on God when times are hard. But what about when everything’s great? When there’s money in the bank and food on the table, we can deceive ourselves into some very dangerous assumptions. In this message, we'll look to the example of someone who didn’t survive success, in the hopes of making sure that we do.
