Continuing the last four weeks of the Old Testament portion of our LIFEstory series, we come to the great end-times vision of Ezekiel in the last nine chapters of the book carrying his name. Focusing on chapter 47 we see yet another picture of Jesus Christ emerge as inspiring reminder of the vision of our church family.
Nearing the end of the Old Testament portion of our LIFEstory series, we come to the beautiful New Covenant text of Jeremiah 31. Reviewing Biblical covenants as a way of understanding God’s great dealings with us, Lead Pastor Scot Pollok walks us through the magnificent promises of God and how they relate to the church today.
Adult Pastor Gavin Carrier continues our LIFEstory series with a message from the prophetic book of Joel.
As a part of our LIFEstory series, Adult Pastor Gavin Carrier teaches from the book of Zephaniah.
Our LIFEstory series brings us to King Hezekiah of Judah in the book of Isaiah. Hezekiah’s interaction with God and the prophet Isaiah reveal much of God’s character and dealings with men as Lead Pastor Scot Pollok explains.
As a bookends to our study of King Uzziah, we look today at Isaiah’s call to the ministry of prophet, which happened in dramatic fashion in the year of Uzziah’s death. So went the King due to pride and un-teachability, so will go the nation. Isaiah’s vision of Israel’s true King and the atonement of his sin stands as one of the high points of Old Testament prophecy. Its deep relevance is still felt today.
Most of us don’t know how the writing prophets fit into the history of Israel, Judah and the devastating exiles under Assyria and Babylon. While explaining that, Lead Pastor Scot Pollok looks into the often forgotten book of Amos, written to the northern kingdom of Israel as a warning of impending judgment. In this study we take a look at true worship and false worship as a matter of the heart.
Our LIFEstory study brings us to the tucked-away story of King Uzziah in 2 Chronicles 26. His marvelous beginning became a tragic end as prosperity and comfort cut the cords of desperation and need, which in turn gave inner pride a bit of a growth spurt. Once pride was on the move, trouble came running. Practically, it was in the area of teachability that this problem first showed up in Uzziah.
