Jesus Heals My Deepest Wounds
The Gospels are full of interesting stories where people encounter Jesus and are profoundly changed. The famous story of The Woman At The Well in The Gospel of John chapter 4 details the story of a woman with baggage and deep relational hurt who encounters Jesus. The story shows how Jesus is able to get to the heart of matters when we encounter him.
How To Hear The Voice of God
Have you ever felt like you heard God tell you to do something? What has that experience been like? Many people have weird experiences where they think they've encountered God, but don't know how to make sense of it. Christians believe God speaks through the Bible, and that God's words are powerful - life changing even! There is an incredible story in The Old Testament about a woman named Huldah who was a prophet and who knew the Scriptures at a time when the rest of the men and leaders in her culture did not. God uses Huldah in a powerful way to convict and confront God's people who had turned to sin. The lesson for you in this story is - do you know the word of God?
A Story That’s Not Just for Mothers
The stories we have in the Bible teach us how to live by inviting us to see ourselves in the characters and experiences. In the Old Testament, there is a famous story of a woman named Abigail who through her humility and wisdom overcomes an intense and trying circumstance. Abigail is a powerful example for us of a woman in the Bible who led and succeeded by her character. This story invites us to look at ourselves and how we process hard experiences. In God's economy, the wise and humble rise above.
Why We Need Women To Lead
Gender roles are controversial in culture and in the church. The Bible paints a powerful picture of women leadership and how men can respect and follow that leadership. More than recognizing a woman's ability to lead, the Bible shows that God does big things when men honor the voices of women and recognize God's calling in their life. What would happen in this cultural moment if in the church men were sensitive to the call of God on women's lives? The church can be a completely unique space in culture if we catch this vision.
How Jesus Empowered Women
When most people think of religion, they think of a misogynistic, oppressive system that does not give women rights. While the church falls into that same category, Jesus showed us how to treat women differently. Join us as we continue in our sermon series She/Her with a message titled How Jesus Empowered Women, from our lead pastor, Pastor Matt Brown!
Discovering the Biblical Role of Women
What does the Bible say about what it means to be a woman? The Bible teaches that God made humans male and female and that gender is sacred - but how the church has historically understood the roles of men and women and how they work together has varied. She/Her is a teaching series on what the Bible has to say about God's design for femininity, who some of the key female figures are in the story of the Bible, and what those stories teach us about the gift of women today.
