One of the nastiest ailments known to man is the cancer known as Jealousy. It eats us up on the inside and can destroy a person. In this message, we see how Saul was destroyed by his jealousy of another, and we consider that ramifications in our own lives if we allow our thoughts to dwell on another.
How many parents have ever said, "I'll just do it myself!"?! While perhaps not our finest moments, it was one of King Saul's worst moments. When he ran out of patience for the Lord's word to be confirmed, he acted in the place of the prophet Samuel, and it cost him dearly. We are designed to wait on the Lord and trust Him in obedience.
In this message on 1 Samuel, we look at the moment Israel demands a King. Often times the root causes of our demands are Control and Fitting In. But the Lord has also given us a spiritual need to Surrender.
In this first message in the 1 Samuel series, we look at the rise of a young boy who is brought into the world on a promise, raised in a most dysfunctional family, and yet is destined to become a man wholly dedicated to the Lord. And even 1000 years before Christ, we see prophecy of Jesus!
Pastor Brad shared a story of Elisha. Sometimes we're looking, but we're not truly seeing. Jesus has set us free to see the spiritual reality and invites us into that. If you're struggling with fear or anxiety in this season, we pray this message will bring encouragement to you.
Unity of churches during the 10 Days of Prayer.
In the final installment of the START Class series, Pastor Brad teaches on what the early church sees as a basic fundamental of the faith: making disciples. In this message, we go over simple helps to make sharing our faith natural and effective.
In this new member series about becoming a part of our church, we look at what makes SPW unique. God has a plan for every church - and in many ways we're similar to each other, but we also have our own specific callings. SPW has a purpose to bring people to encounter Jesus.
Pastor Brad kicked off the first message in our START Class series. This is a sermon series that will launch into our new member class. Week 1 of 4 is all about the gospel and how Jesus has called us to be His. We look at the Roman's Road to Salvation and are invited to commit or recommit our lives to Jesus.
