    This morning, I want to talk to you about Christ's love for his bride, the church. I want to speak to you about His devotion and sacrifice for what is, for Him, the unrivaled passion of his heart.

    Many of the churches -- and by churches, I mean Christians -- have forgotten the church is meant to thrive outside the walls of the church house by serving others and by being a means of God’s Grace. It is time for the Church to leave the building.

    TITLE: THE CHURCH HAS LEFT THE BUILDING SCRIPTURE: ST. MARK 16:15 On last Sunday I preached from the subject “THE CHURCH” – this morning I want to continue that message or Part-II and tag this message – “THE CHURCH HAS LEFT THE BUILDING.” I remember when I was still relatively young, Elvis ...read more

    During this Pandemic and over the past several weeks, we have learned so much about what it means to be a church and how many ways there are to be a church without gathering in person or making full use of our church buildings.

    TITLE: THE CHURCH SCRIPTURE: ST. MATTHEW 16:16-18 / EPHESIANS 1:22-23 / EPHESIANS 2:19-22 Who would have predicted between Christmas and Easter we would be reimagining how we do church! In the past, I’ve actually enjoyed thinking through the potential impacts of unforeseen events that could ...read more
