“The Glare of the Spotlight: Chosen”
"The Glare of the Spotlight: Chosen"
This is the first sermon in this series focusing on the book of Esther. God's hand is at work in life's difficult situations. Esther was chosen to leave her simple life to become queen. Where have you been placed by God, and what might God want of you? Think about this: how does it change your perspective if you were "chosen" by God to be where you are in life. Be the person God wants you to be.

    “Vision in the Kitchen”
    "Vision in the Kitchen"
    We welcome guest speaker, Rev. Allyson Lawrence, from Fayetteville First United Methodist Church as she brings us the message, "Vision in the Kitchen."
    An epiphany is defined as a major life changing event in someone's life. Nathanael was an average person approached by the disciples and told about Jesus from Nazareth. He went from stating about Jesus, "can anything good come from Nazareth?" to saying to Jesus, “Rabbi, you are the Son of God; you are the king of Israel” after Jesus told him he saw Nathanael under the fig tree.

    “Live Better, Together”
    "Live Better, Together"
    Our series on Advent Conspiracy focused on four principles: Worship Fully, Spend Less, Give More, and Love All. By focusing on these areas, our prayer as Christians is that we experience Christ fully and that we "Live Better, Together."

    “Advent Conspiracy: Love All”
    "Advent Conspiracy: Love All"
    Rejection at any age is hard. Everyone needs to feel that they are loved and accepted. There is someone today that needs to hear that they are loved. God loves everybody. We may find it hard to believe of some people, but Jesus told us "to love our enemies." We may not be able to comprehend it because we are not God. God "Loves All."

    “Advent Conspiracy: Give More”
    "Advent Conspiracy: Give More"
    Advent Conspiracy is not a way to boycott Christmas. Advent Conspiracy of "Spending Less" is so we can "Give More." There are all sorts of ways we can "Give More." The focus shouldn't be on how much we give. "Stuff" can bring about temporary happiness, but it won't bring us everlasting joy. God "Gave More," so we could have everlasting joy.

    “Advent Conspiracy: Spend Less”
    "Advent Conspiracy: Spend Less"
    When you really get down to Christmas, simplify and focus on what is the real reason for Christmas. You don't have to scrap all the gifts and holiday festivities, but simplify. How much simpler could it get than a baby born in a barn to peasant parents, and the first guest to the party were shepherds?

    “Advent Conspiracy: Worship Fully”
    "Advent Conspiracy: Worship Fully"
    We can worship anytime and any place, but when we meet as a congregation, we focus on worship. Really make connecting with God a priority in here and out there. Wherever you decide to worship, "Worship Full."

    “That’s Some High Quality H2O”
    "That's Some High Quality H2O"
    Jesus tells us that he gives us a drink of "Living Water." Everyone goes through life with a longing/thirst for relationships. We may try to quench that thirst in many ways. Until we connect with God through a relationship with Jesus Christ, we will always be thirsting for the "Living Water."

    “Just Add Water”
    "Just Add Water"
    Water is cleansing and purifying. Water opens up the door to grace. We should love a god that allows us a fresh start. With grace, God forgives us. By His grace, we can keep growing and become more like Jesus everyday. Be thankful for the grace of God that allows us a "fresh start."

    “Calming the Chaos”
    "Calming the Chaos"
     
    What are the storms of life that rage around us? What is the chaos that people are in? What do you do when chaos hits? God may not "fix it" right away, but God prepares a way for us. We have a calm through our relationship with Jesus Christ and our salvation is a calm to the chaos.
