Cruising Through Colossians

Cruising Through Colossians

We are “Cruising Through Colossians” together…  although short in length, just four chapters, the New Testament book of Colossians is an amazing book filled with both opportunities and challenges.

Cruising Through Colossians, we are going to discover an amazing opportunity, how to live worthy of the Lord and please him.  I am convinced that the vast majority of Christ Followers want to please him . . . I’m convince you fall into that category.  So, in this series, we are going to discover four distinct ways to accomplish this great goal.


Making Dead-On Decisions

According to a recent UK study, the average person will make 774,618 decisions over their lifetime — and will come to regret 143,262 of them!  Dead-on Decision can catapult us to success!  However, the consequences of our bad decisions can begin to take on a life of their own, greatly limiting our future choices and opportunities.

Join Pastor Pete for this series, “Making Dead-On Decisions”; a scriptural approach to honing our decision making skills.


Doomsday: How the World Will End


Have you noticed culture’s fascination with the end of the world?  Hollywood churns out movies about it.  Authors rake in the dough through books sensationalizing it.  The History Channel recently devoted a ten week series to it.  Could it be that all the chaos in our world today has placed us on the road to Doomsday?  Well, the answer is “Yes!”  We are definitely on the road to Doomsday.

So where can we find our Doomsday Survival Manual?

Join Pastor Pete as we take a biblical journey to Doomsday. Just How Will the Word End?


The Case For Christ

Journey with us for a Special 4 Week Sermon Series based on the movie “The Case for Christ”.  During this series we will uncover and explore the evidence for our Faith in Jesus and his death, burial and resurrection.

1 Peter 3:15 says,
” … always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have.”

About the Case for Christ Movie:
The Case for Christ Movie is based on the incredible story of a hard-driving journalist, Lee Strobel, who was exactly where he expected to be at work: on top. His award-winning investigative reporting recently earned him a promotion to legal editor at the Chicago Tribune. But things weren’t going nearly as well at home where his wife Leslie’s newfound faith in Christ went against everything Lee believed—or didn’t believe—as an avowed atheist.

Utilizing his journalistic and legal training, Lee begins a quest to debunk the claims of Christianity in order to save his crumbling marriage. Chasing down the biggest story of his career, Lee comes face-to-face with unexpected results that could change everything he knows to be true.


Kid’s Stuff for Adults

Maybe you’re like me (Pastor Pete), raised in church, attended Sunday School and Junior Church as a child. If so, you remember all the great Bible stories we were taught. Stories like Noah and the Ark, David and Goliath, Father Abraham and Isaac along with scores more. Awhile back it dawned on me that in my 38+ years of ministry, I’ve never revisited these great Bible stories! After all, they’re “Kid’s Stuff,” stories to fascinate the kids with in Sunday School and Kid’s Church.

Well, no more! Starting this weekend we will begin to explore “Kid’s Stuff for Adults.” We are going to revisit some of the greatest stories in the Bible, we’re going to get reacquainted with some of the greatest heroes and villains of all time. However, don’t break out your toys and crayons, because “Kid’s Stuff for Adults” is not for kids. This series will take you places you’ve never been before. This series will challenge you with scriptural concepts that are definitely not “Kid’s Stuff!”



Inside Scoop


We all love to get the “Inside Scoop” on the story behind the story.  We see a co-worker called suddenly into the boss’ office and we go to the boss’ secretary and probe, “Come on, what’s really going on in there?  Give me the inside scoop!”  We read tabloids and magazines, watch TV shows like ‘Access Hollywood’ to get the inside scoop on celebrities.  We LOVE the inside scoop! 

Join us in this series for the Inside Scoop on something far greater than workplace gossip or Hollywood scandals.  Through His use of ‘parables,’ stories about everyday life experiences that also hold a spiritual truth, Jesus gives us the Inside Scoop on the “Secrets of the Kingdom of Heaven.”  How about it?  Do YOU want the Inside Scoop?


Building A Daring Faith

Building a Daring Faith

What does your faith look like?  Is it strong? Is it weak? Is it non-existent? Or, is it a work in progress?  You might respond, “You know, I’ve really not given it much thought.”  This response would characterize the faith of the vast majority of people today.  We really don’t give our faith much thought. However, we should give faith, not only a passing thought, but our full attention because Hebrews 11:6 declares, “And without faith, it is impossible to please God…”!

Did you catch that?  Without faith it is impossible to please God!
Now couple this scriptural truth with, “You know, I’ve really not given it much thought.”
FAITH is a critical part of our relationship with God, we had better not only give it thought,
we had better give it our full attention!

Join us in Building a Daring Faith! In this series we will discover:
•  What Faith Looks Like
•  How God Exercises Our Faith
•  How We Fail at Faith
•  How We Build Faith

It’s going to be an exciting journey!  Get onboard!


JESUS… the ONLY way?

jesus... the only way

Our current post-modern culture offers an international smorgasbord of religious choices through which we can improve ourselves as individuals and through which we can prepare ourselves for the life to come… that is IF there really is a life to come.

However, Jesus declared of himself,
“I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me!” John 14:6

And that’s the “rub” that catapults true biblical Christianity into the emotionally charged world of “political correctness!”

In this series, we will tackle this politically incorrect proposition, that Jesus is the ONLY WAY. By the end of our journey, you will gain confidence in Jesus’ declaration and you will be able to provide a defense for… Jesus as the Only Way.




Is there really life after this life? Or, as many declare, “when this life ends that’s it, we go into a state of eternal non-existence”. Is the hope of eternal life just something religious people embrace to medicate their fear of death? Or is there really something beyond the veil of human death?

And if there IS life after life, what’s that going to look like?

If we do transition to an eternal life experience, what are we going to be doing for ever and ever and ever and…?

Let’s journey together into “Life after Life.”


Jump Start


Really? Are you kidding? It’s a brand new year, but you’re going to settle being the same old you? Each New Year brings with it a fresh opportunity for change. Each New Year offers us a chance to “Jump Start” our lives. Really? You’re going to drag into 2016 the same old junk you’ve been hauling around for years?


Join Pastor Pete and tackle together the ‘junk’ that we need to jettison so that we can live the life that Jesus intends for us to live.

“It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery!” Galatians 5:1
