Jesus spent his last evening before his arrest with his disciples in a garden. According to the Scriptures, this garden was a place where Jesus often took his disciples to pray, and it was a place that He often went to be alone with His Father as well. In this sermon, Pastor Mike encourages us to imitate Jesus by having a place (a garden) where we too can go "up" to meet with the Father.

When we decide to make God the object of our worship, who do we find when we go UP? We find a God who is holy. As a matter of fact, Isaiah says that "Holy" is His name. In this sermon, Pastor Mike takes us on a journey through the Scriptures to see how people of old who caught a glimpse of God's holiness reacted and responded - with the hopes that we will get a glimpse of God's holiness and respond in the same ways.

We've already established that we all worship something. In Psalm 16, David reveals what happens when we make God the object of our worship - above anyone or anything else. The result is that we end up receiving the very things we were looking for when we unwisely decided to place something else as ultimate in the place of God. Pastor Mike reveals what happens to us when we get worship right.

By design, God has created humans with the unique quality to worship. We were created to worship God. However, because of sin, our worship is often hijacked, and we find ourselves worshiping something or someone other than God. In this sermon, Pastor Mike explores this concept and then offers practical ways to assess what we are truly worshiping. He also offers help in "re-calibrating" our worship back to God.

There are powerful shaping forces in our culture. Forces that subtly yet effectively work to conform us. But, the Apostle Paul implores all who follow Jesus to "not be conformed to the world any longer." Pastor Mike begins this new series on worship reminding us about these powerful shaping forces that we must fight, and sets the table for how we can instead be shaped by the life, death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus.

Hope is not easy to come by these days when so much seems dark around us - but there is hope as we move into a new year. Great hope! Pastor Mike looks at God's words to us from Psalm 9:7-8 where we are reminded that God is - and will remain - securely enthroned in power as we enter 2019. The implications of this should give us great hope!

Advent is a time to remember that as God's people, we are waiting - waiting for Jesus to return. We know He came once, but we must never forget that He will come again, and this should make us a people of great joy and anticipation. However, worry has a way of stealing our joy, so Pastor Mike explains the biblical "prescription" for living a life free of worry.

Nothing can stop God's plan for His people. As promised hundreds of years before Christ came, God promised a Messiah who would redeem the world. Then Christ came! Pastor Joe encourages us to expect that nothing will stop God's plan for us either.

Hope. We all need it, but not many of us find it. Why? Because we find ourselves repeatedly placing our hope in people or things that can't deliver what we're looking for. In this first Advent sermon, Pastor Mike reminds us why true hope is only found in the Lord, and encourages us to be hopeful people as we await the celebration of Christ's first coming and as we simultaneously await His second coming as well.
