Sure, there's a lot to get ready for as we prepare for Christmas, when we remember Jesus' birth. What about when he comes again? Are we ready for Jesus to Return?

 In this "spiritual disciplines" series, we'll be using various narrative accounts from the final week of Jesus' life to learn both practical ways to incorporate spiritual disciplines into our lives, as well as gaining a better understanding of the "heart" behind these spiritual disciplines.

Grace

The Apostle Paul writes to the maturing Galatian church in order to clarify the confusion between law and grace. They are embracing a “gospel” that seems comforting, but is actually leading them away from salvation by God’s grace alone. This series will highlight select portions of Galatians where Paul challenges the church to look beyond predictable boundaries found in the law to embrace the freedom found in God’s grace and love.

What is your TRI-angle?

Life in the Christian faith is about relationships.

God wants to us to grow closer to and more like Him and grow in relationships with others (Matthew 22:36- 40). These fundamental relationships in faith and life can be explained with the points of a triangle.

Our relationships can be measured in how we are maturing in faith towards God (UP), together with believers (IN) and outward towards non-believers (OUT). 

Peace on Earth Logo
12/01/2013 to 12/29/2013

During this busy holiday season, we could all use a bit of peace...but what is peace?  Join us as we learn about the peace that only God can bring through Jesus--the Prince of Peace.

09/15/2013 to 11/17/2013

Our church has begun our 70 Days of Vision campaign!  We are grateful so many have signed up to join a small group.  Our Pastors (Pastor Paul, Pastor Rob and Pastor John), will preach a message on the worldview the small groups study each following Sunday.  Get ready for a great experience, for you personally and for our church!  If you are not part of a small group, sign up today. Books are still available and can be purchased after any of our services. Contact our Campaign Coordinator, Danielle Azzopardi today.  Call 248-672-3692 or email: danielle.iris77@gmail.com.  Let's do this together as an entire church!  You will be blessed!

07/07/2013 to 09/08/2013

A hero is admirable, courageous and someone we want to imitate. But the Bible shows us that the heroes of the faith were also very human, prone to failure. The great news is that God uses all the faithful. He uses us who are both sinners and saints to reveal His grace and love. When we are weak He is strong!

01/05/2013 to 02/10/2013

A series focusing on some of the unholy and unhealthy habits that we take for granted as part of our American culture which bombard us so regularly.  How do these lead us away from Jesus, and deteriorate us spiritually so that we’re not living up to our God-given potential as his children?

11/24/2012 to 12/30/2012

There are many things that could cause us anxiety as Christians right now.  The political and financial situation around the globe; the increased sense of division among the American people, made so clear by this most recent election, and so on.  What if America isn’t the 21st Century superpower that it was in the 20th Century?  The temptation to drown our sorrows and worries in the excesses of the season (Black Friday, Christmas shopping, holiday excesses, etc.) will be high.  But rather than have an excessive, pessimistic, sorrow-drowning Christmas season, what if we elevated Jesus and the hope that He gives us more than ever before?  What if we lifted up Jesus, whose birth narratives we will remember in the weeks to come, as the only sure foundation the world has ever had?  Join us each week as we wrestle with these questions.

09/01/2012 to 09/30/2012

 
How could God steer the reluctant prophet Jonah to embrace a fierce rival like Nineveh?  In 40 days God performed a miracle in Nineveh, but what about Jonah?  In this Jonah series, God will guide us in ways to do the impossible for Him.  God guide us to love the whole world!

06/30/2012 to 07/29/2012

Many would say that the days of defining the United States as a Christian nation are long gone, but does that mean that all hope is lost? Certainly not!  God continues to bless and calls his people to share his life and love with a world in need.  How do we do this in our unique context?  
In "GPS: God's Guidance in a Post-Christian Society" we'll explore what it means (and what it does not mean) for us to live in a Post-Christian Society and how God equips us to witness to the world he loves!  

02/21/2012 to 03/31/2012

During Lent 2012, we'll be spending our time in two sermon series:

Table Talk

On Sundays, we'll explore what Jesus said to his followers as they gathered together around a meal.

Saying Grace

On Wednesdays, we'll explore God's Word and see how Jesus example gives us insight into the power of prayer.

 

01/21/2012 to 02/19/2012

God has called us to go and make disciples of all nations, but how do we do that? Do we have to become professional missionaries and evangelists? Join us as we discover how God's love can overflow out of our lives and into the lives of others as we live our everyday lives.

01/07/2012 to 01/15/2012

Join us as for this two-week vision series as we discover what God's purpose is for St. Matthew as we explore how we can fill in the blank.
