Faith on Fire Week 4: Bold Truth

Faith on Fire Week 4: Bold Truth

Have you ever done everything right, and still ended up in trouble? Imagine how Peter feels… He’s done nothing except heal a man, and he finds himself being called before the most dangerous court in Jerusalem. But the Sanhedrin did not know what they were getting when they asked a simple fisherman to stand and […]

Faith on Fire Week 3: From Lame to Leaping

Faith on Fire Week 3: From Lame to Leaping

This week we look at the first miracle performed in the Christian Church. Does the way this miracle was performed teach us anything about praying for miracles in our lives? What can we learn from the miracle near the “Beautiful Gate?” BIBLE REFERENCES: Acts 3:1-6; John 9:1-8; 2 Corinthians 12:7-10; Acts 3:7-8. Philippians 4:12-13.

Faith on Fire Week 2: The Truth About Tongues

Faith on Fire Week 2: The Truth About Tongues

Pentecost – one of the most amazing, and most confusing, moments in the Christian Church. This is the first time the idea of “Speaking in Tongues” was seen by the church. What is the deal with that? Was this a one time thing? Is it a pattern for how the Holy Spirit enters our lives? […]

Faith on Fire Week 1: The Matter of Matthias

Faith on Fire Week 1: The Matter of Matthias

We start a brand new series today — a walk through the Book of Acts, Spirit Chapel style. (Hint: which means its more of a meander). This week Pastor Grice introduces us to the characters of the stories, and starts off with an interesting question: If you could go to church next week and meet […]

Fruits – Week 11: Control

Fruits – Week 11: Control

We finish the “Fruits of the Spirit” series by looking at the final fruit: Self-Control. It is the fruit everyone wishes they had more of — and yet they don’t. Why? If the Spirit brings this fruit, why is it that even the most mature Christian thinks they don’t have enough self-control in their lives? […]

Fruits – Week 10: Gentle Giants

Fruits – Week 10: Gentle Giants

We’re almost done working through the Fruits of the Spirit. This time, we are looking at “Gentleness” — what does it mean that we are to be gentle? Is this something that even works in a cut-throat, take no prisoners kind of world we live in today? It does if you understand that God will […]

Fruits – Week 9: Faith, Trust, and Knowing

Fruits – Week 9: Faith, Trust, and Knowing

The bible speaks of Faith. A lot. It is the one thing every believer wishes they had more of, and it seems everyone struggles with it at some time in their Christian life. But what if the struggle is because an important nuance was lost in translation? BIBLE REFERENCE: Galatians 5:22-25; Matthew 17:20; 1 Timothy […]

Fruits – Week 8: Kindness and Goodness

Fruits – Week 8: Kindness and Goodness

Kindness and Goodness. Those are the same thing, aren’t they? Then why would Paul list them as separate fruits in Galatians? And, don’t all Christians have this anyway? We take an honest look at some fruits that seem to be all too absent in today’s church. (All of this plus another story of Pastor Grice’s […]

Fruits – Week 7: Waiting For Patience

We turn our attention to a fruit many of us say we want — but secretly don’t. Who wants to be patient in today’s world? Isn’t that just a recipe for coming in last place? Or is there more to this patience thing than we think? BIBLE REFERENCES: Matthew 26:38; Acts 1:4; Psalm 37:5,7; Psalm […]

Fruits – Week 6: Peace and the PittFall

Fruits - Week 6: Peace and the PittFall

The 3rd fruit of the spirit is Peace — one of the most misunderstood emotions in our world. From flashing peace signs to wearing peace symbols, it seems everyone wants peace. But no one knows how to get it. Pastor Grice shares a story of how he found peace in the unlikeliest of places — […]
