To Live is Christ, To Die is Gain – Matthew Chandler – 12 weeks – January 5 - March 23

The story begins in Philippi, where Paul introduces three individuals that were all enslaved without the gospel. These individuals included, Lydia, the fortune telling slave-girl, and the hard working jailer. Their lives portray dysfunction and emptiness but are completely transformed by the Gospel. True joy and Christ's love begin to live within them, giving them a life of purpose. Paul himself was enslaved and then by God's grace and mercy he could pen these popular words "to live is Christ, and to die is gain" and "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me". In this, one of Paul's most intimate letters, Pastor Chandler paints a beautiful picture of what maturity in Christ truly looks like.

You’ll Get Through This – Max Lucado – 6 weeks – March 30 - May 4

Max Lucado offers refreshing assurance for anyone facing trials. Consider the story of Joseph tossed in a pit by his brothers, sold into slavery, wrongfully imprisoned. God weaved what was meant for evil into good. He is in the business of redeeming the broken. He was then. He is still. Do you crave some hope for tough times? Then this is the message you need.
