"Blessing" - Tim Mannin

Jesus. He changed everything about everything (Week 19) As we listen to stories of God’s faithfulness in the lives of the people of our community, we are encouraged and reminded of the call He has placed on us to give. Giving it all away is a posture of believing God is able. We must sow the seeds and trust that He will spring forth new life when the time is right. (2 Cor. 7:6-8, Mal. 3:8-10, Luke 21:1-4)

"Jesus & Money" - Tim Mannin

Jesus. He changed everything about everything (Week 18) Jesus addressed the issue of finances and giving on many different occasions throughout scripture. We look at his heart for us in how He instructs us to give and the promises that follow. He challenges us to test Him in this area and He will do as He has promised. Do we test Him and trust Him? (Luke 16:10, Matt. 6:24, 22:37, 6:33, Exodus 23:19, Mal. 3:8-10)

"Too Much Of A Good Thing" - Tim Mannin

1 John: Love Conquers All (Part 11) In our final morning in the series 1 John (Love Conquers All), we witness a "drop the mic" moment from John as he encourages us to keep away from idols in his final words of the letter. There are really good things in life that we sometimes elevate into a higher position and it begins to drive our life. If we look to created things to give us hope, love, and happiness, they will eventually break our hearts. (1 John 5:20-21, Rom. 1:21,25, Rev. 2:2-5)

"They Were Generous" - Tim Mannin

The First Church (Part 1) This morning we begin a new teaching series on the early church. We discuss stories in scripture of generosity and what God calls us to be. Who in your life comes first? For many of us, we love God, but struggle to put Him first. The most important thing that we can derive from scripture is that God must come first. (Acts 2:42-46, 4:32-37, Ex. 23:19, Lev. 27:30, Gen. 4:3-5, I Cor. 9:6-8)

"Give It All Away" - Tim Mannin

Generous: becoming a generous people (part 3) In our final week of the generous series, we learn to approach life as "everything we have is a gift from God, and potentially a gift to others." Our money, our time, our talents, our wisdom... are we holding onto too much? Paul describes churches and people who have little, yet cheerfully give for the sake of the gospel, what can we learn from them? (2 Cor. 8, 9 - Acts 10, 11, 13, 15, 17 - Matt. 6)

"Let's Build A Church" - Tim Mannin

Generous: becoming a generous people (part 2) If we say we love God, we must first love His bride. Being generous isn't just about giving in order to receive a blessing, but about loving and trusting the Father. We heard 2 great stories from people in our community who are living this example out. Collectively as a body we desire to become a generous people and we were so excited to announce this morning our plan to donate our church's tithe to the building of a brand new church in Kenya. More details to come! (Luke 21, Malachi 3:8-10, Leviticus 27:30) 

"Let God Be First" - Tim Mannin

Generous: becoming a generous people (part 1) We begin our new series about the idea of becoming a generous people with the premise that God did not create giving for Himself and His benefit, but instead... He created giving, for you. He created opportunities for you to put Him first in your life above your possessions and income. Ultimately, He calls you to test Him and trust Him when it comes to giving. (Luke 16:10-15, Proverbs 3:9, Malachi 3:6-10, Leviticus 27:30, Exodus 23:19, Genesis 4:3-5)

"Doing Things That Matter, With Money" - Tim Mannin

Five More: Doing Things That Matter (Part 3) This is a discussion that challenges us all on where our heart is at when it comes to our finances and resources. This is a perspective shift on how we view what God has given us. Have we been trustworthy with what we have been given? (Luke 16:10-15, Matthew 6:21, 2 Cor. 8:8-14)
