Have you ever done anything truly selfless? Most of us would say yes but if we think really hard we might admit '..of course the selfless deed did make me feel good.' So what was our truest motivation? Well it's hard to tell but the better question might be, 'Where does that motivation come from?' Today Springs Trustee Robert Boyd looks at Matthew and helps us examine what the oldest known author of selfless motivation had to say about how we are suppose to live. Join us Sunday's 10 AM at McKenna Event Center in New Braunfels, Texas.
Don't you wish that when folks went to describe you, they would describe you as wise? As we continue working through Ephesians, we are going to see how the Apostle Paul calls all Christians to walk in wisdom. And today, Lead Pastor John Almquist figures out exactly what that means. Join us 10 AM Sunday's at McKenna Event Center in New Braunfels, Texas.
Sometimes we think that it's better not to share with others our hurts, habits, and hang ups. However, God has called us to be children of the light, as as such, we are called to expose the darkness. Join us as Lead Pastor John Almquist continues studying Ephesians 5 to see how walking in the light makes a major difference between looking godly and being godly. Heard enough? Come visit us in person Sunday's 10 AM at the McKenna Event Center in New Braunfels, Texas.
Likely you don't know a G.O.A.T.. No, not a four-legged, bulging-eyed, masticating farm animal, but a "Greatest Of All Times". When you think of that phrase what iconic figure immediately flashes in your minds eye? An athelete, actor, leader, teacher, or theologian? If someone ask you "Who is the greatest basketball player of all times?", who do you think about. Today Lead Pastor John Almquist continues our series in Ephesians 5 looking at the greatest GOAT of all times. Join us Sunday morning's 10 AM at the McKenna Event Center in New Braunfels, Texas.
As Christians, we are called to live differently. Not because we are superior or self-righteous but because we know a different love. As we continue working our way through Ephesians, today we will see five ways that Paul instructs Christians to live differently. Lead Pastor John Almquist examines five ways that should characterize a Christian's way of life.
Holiness is something that is often talked and sung about, but is it something that Christians often try to be about? Today, the Apostle Paul is going to share with us the framework for why holiness is something we must all be about as Christians. There is no such thing as coasting spiritually, and today Lead Pastor John Almquist begins the conversation of why that's true as he examines Ephesians 4:17-24.
Have you ever heard the phrase "I love Jesus but I don't like the church"? That sentiment is far to common in our culture, and it often comes from good reasons. Listen in to part 1 of Eph 4:11-16 as Lead Pastor John Almquist continues unpacking the Apostle Paul's outline for Christ followers how we are to be a part of a church - that communities, Christians, as well as non-believers love. We are called to love Jesus and to love His Church. You're invited to join us Sunday's at the McKenna Event Center at 10a.
Have you ever known anyone with gifted abilities? Were they extremely funny always with a joke ready? Maybe they had the gift to listen really well or always seemed ready for extra dinner guest. Perhaps they were a great athelete who never seemed to miss a shot. What if I were to tell you that you're gifted? Actually, supernaturally gifted? As we continue our look through Ephesians, Paul is going to share with us how how God has given us gifts, and He has given us these gifts to serve and unite His Church. Listen to Lead Pastor John Almquist as he explores the next chapter of Ephesians with The Springs Community Church. Join us Sunday's 10a at the McKenna Event Center.
What about your community are you passionate about?
What would you want to tell everyone is THE most important thing to be concerned and consumed about? Hunger, homelessness, abuse, civic duty, local government, education, or art and culture are just a few that come to mind.
Consider if you were writing to a local church on behalf of God, what would be the first instruction or command you would give to them? To love others? To serve the poor? To be morally pure? To read their Bible?
While those are all good, they are not what the Apostle shows us comes first when calling the local church to live out their faith. Listen as Lead Pastor John Almquist discusses what the Apostle Paul shares must mark the local church in order for it to be a healthy, New Testament church.
Join us Sunday's at 10am in New Braunfels, Texas at the McKenna Event Center.
Likely you've been told by your parents, spouse, kids, friends, or even a complete stranger how special you are. The opposite is likely true as well. You, or someone you know, has been told how disappointing they are or made to feel 'less than'. Feeling like an outsider and the the desire to feel like an insider is not new. It has been around since before Jesus walked this Earth. The Apostle Paul addresses the discrimination of his day between two very diverse, very different people groups. From Ephesians 2:11-22 we look at Paul's instructions about how we are suppose to love one another. Pastor John Almquist looks at how we are to respond to all people. Join us 10 AM Sunday mornings at McKenna in New Braunfels, Texas.
