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.
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 thought what it would mean for the Christian faith if Jesus had not been Resurrected? Have you ever thought about the implications if the tomb was not empty? Join us today as first we see the Apostle Paul share with the church in Corinth that if Christ did not rise from the dead, our faith is in vain. But second, he will share that in fact Christ has risen, and as such, we can find our hope in our faith! Listen as Lead Pastor John Almquist continues our study of Ephesians. Join us live Sunday's 10 AM at McKenna.
Have you ever wanted to be part of the 'in' crowd? Maybe you were voted most liked of some sort in school. Maybe you've just struggled to belong. Is it possible for church to become a place that requires you to fit in? If so, what would that look like? The way you talk, dress, bible knowledge, or maybe involvement? Listen to Part 2 of the teaching based on Paul's instructions for what the local church must be. How God desires, and has called, all churches to be effective in their ministry to one another, and by doing so, build themselves up in love. How the local church is meant to be a place of life change, as it is God's divine institution and primary means of extending Christ's love to seek and save a lost world. By the power of Christ, the local church is the hope of the world. Listen as Lead Pastor John Almquist looks at Ephesians 4:11-16. Join us Sunday's 10 AM at McKenna.
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 wanted something so much you knew it would change your life? Well.. maybe not change your life, but your life would be significantly better? Did you notice what happened once you obtained this coveted thing? Most likely it 'faded to black' as the next best thing appeared on the scene of your life. Today Pastor John Almquist continues in part four of our study of Ephesians (Eph 1:15-23) looking at the ultimate things we all want and need. These things of God are what we long for, what we are made for, and no amount of stuff on this earth will ever satisfy. It all fades to black in comparison. Join us 10 AM Sunday mornings at McKenna in New Braunfels, Texas.
Chances are you've seen the holiday car commercial where someone in some make-believe world walks outside their house on Christmas morning to a perfectly manicured, snow-covered lawn where a very expensive, German made, new car awaits adorned with a giant red bow. Have you ever received an undeserving gift? Maybe over the holiday you or someone close to you received a really spectacular gift. Likely it wasn't a new car but perhaps it was still breathtaking. Lead Pastor John Almquist looks at Ephesians 1:7-14 unpacking the Truth that you are treasured by God.
