Riches in Christ - Part 10

March 11, 2018

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.

Riches In Christ - Part 9

February 25, 2018

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.

Riches In Christ - Part 6

February 4, 2018

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.

Riches In Christ - Part 5

January 28, 2018

Who are you? Likely someone has asked you that very question. Have you ever asked yourself "Who am I?" In case you're curious - the Bible has a lot to say about this subject. How you answer this question tells a lot about your view of God. Is He a God looking to slap you down with eternal disappointment every time you mess up? Is He an eternal grandfather that doesn't really care about you and is just okay with you no matter what you do or how you treat yourself and others. Neither view is biblical but is widely accepted. There is good news, no great news! Today Pastor John Almquist continues in part five of our study of Ephesians (Eph 2:1-3) looking at who God says we are in His eyes. Join us 10 AM Sunday mornings at McKenna in New Braunfels, Texas.

Riches In Christ - Part 4

January 21, 2018

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.

Riches In Christ - Part 3

January 14, 2018

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.

Peacemaker Series - Part 3

December 17, 2017

What to do when sin wins? Most everyone has had a friend, relative, or neighbor bent on self-destruction. Often times they claim they're not hurting anyone as they leave a path in history marked by pain. What is the most loving thing we can do? What should we do? How can we best care for them? Lead Pastor John Almquist continues part three of a closer look at conflict resolution and what to do when someone full surrenders to win, and is resolute in their selfish desires to never look back. Join us on Sunday morning for a great equipping opportunity for a waiting world.

Peacemakers Series - Part 2

December 10, 2017

Who doesn't like to be right? Most of us won't admit it, but much of the time we're more interested in being right than being at peace. What marks a true peacemaker? Lead Pastor John Almquist continues part two of a closer look at conflict resolution. Join us on Sunday morning for a great equipping opportunity for a waiting world.

Peacemakers Series - Part 1

December 3, 2017

Chances are you're not the last person on the face of the earth, you don't currently live on the International Space Station, nor are you marooned on an island.. Unless you find yourself in a similar location or situation where you're completely alone, you will have conflict with someone. Lead Pastor John Almiquist looks at the crucial, and often overlooked, obligation every Christian must relentlessly pursue to be known as authentic by everyone - Christian and non-Christian alike.
