December 29, 2013 - A Year In Review

Pastor Bill Dempsey | Comments (0) | Discuss this Sermon
We are rarely able to see what God is doing in the moment, but most often when we look back through good times and bad, we recognize the reality that God was with us in incredible ways the entire time. Knowing this invites us to step confidently through the open door that lay ahead!

December 8, 2013 - The Life You Never Wanted: Responsible

December 1, 2013 - The Life You Never Wanted: Sexy

Pastor Bill Dempsey | Comments (0) | Discuss this Sermon
Many of us live in a culture saturated in sex-ish stuff. And for many church-goers, talk of sex makes us squirm in our seats, but the Bible has no such reservations about sex. Today we hear what the Scripture has to say about the gift of sex from God.

November 24, 2013 - The Life You Never Wanted: Grateful

Pastor Bill Dempsey | Comments (0) | Discuss this Sermon
Most of us were taught growing up to be thankful for what we have, but the Bible goes even further. Scripture tells us to be grateful to God in spite of--or even because of--our circumstances and trials.

November 10, 2013 - The Life You Never Wanted: Guilty

Pastor Bill Dempsey | Comments (0) | Discuss this Sermon
Many of us know what we want in life, but what if that is not the best life for us? Many of us are quick to defend our innocence, but contradicting our delusion the Bible claims the opposite: that we are in fact guilty. (Please note: the end of this message was lost due to technical problems. Sorry!)

November 3, 2013 - The Life You Never Wanted: Needy

Pastor Bill Dempsey | Comments (0) | Discuss this Sermon
Many of us know what we want in life, but the Bible is filled with people who followed God into a life they never really wanted. One thing most of us find unsettling is being needy...longing for God and His solutions for our life.
