Have you ever had to knock on wood? What does that phrase even mean? This past Saturday night at Refuge Church, lead teacher Brian talked about common grace. We are saved by God’s Grace, through faith, and not by works. But do we really believe that? Check it out, as we explore the mystery that is grace.
On November 2nd, 2019 Refuge launched a 6-week study of Paul’s letter to the Ephesians.
We kicked off that study with chapter 1, as we looked at the mystery of power. It’s an upside-down power. A power that gives up status and authority for love. A power that takes the most sinful human beings and turns them into something good. The power to say to Satan and his demons F you I won’t do what you tell me.
This past Saturday night at Refuge Church, Pastor Jaime Taveras closed out our series on the 10 Commandments. It is commandment number 4: Remember the Sabbath. After God created the universe, he rested. Do you remember to take a rest? Pastor Jaime explores this and many other things in his message, so check it out!
Lead teacher Brian continued our look at the 10 Commandments on Saturday night at Refuge. Specifically commandment number 7, which says ‘You Must Not Commit Adultery’. This one can be a bit uncomfortable, as we look closely at the exact meaning. When difficult subjects come up in the God’s Word, we can’t just avoid them. This one is important, make sure you give it a listen.
This past week at Refuge Church, lead teacher Brian continued our series on the 10 Commandments. This week our commandment was ‘Do Not Steal’. This seems like a pretty simple one, but it requires so deep self-examination. Are you stealing from God without realizing it?
Saturday night at Refuge, guest speaker Matt Podrasky continued our look at the 10 Commandments. It’s important to not only follow the letter of the law, but the heart of the law as well. Commandment Number 9 tells us not to lie, and Commandment Number 10 tells us not to lust. As Christians, we appear hypocritical if we break God’s law. Matt gives us some tips on how to not be a hypocrite, plus some encouragement if you’ve already been turned off by Christians that are hypocrites. Give it a listen!
This past Saturday night at Refuge Church lead teacher Brian Culbertson taught on the commandment to honor our father and mother. This fifth commandment acts as a bridge between the first four (our relationship with God) and the final five (our relationship with others).
We all have different feelings towards our parents. Some good, some bad, some indifferent … but there is no exception clause for this command. It applies to all children at all times. Yes, this means you!!!
Saturday night at Refuge Church, Lead Teacher Brian Culbertson continued our look at the 10 Commandments. This week, we looked at commandment # 3; Do not use God’s name in vain. OMG, do you do this?
This past Saturday night at Refuge Church, special guest speaker Scott Morrison bought us the message. The 6th commandment instructs us to “not murder”. We can all agree that taking a human life is wrong. This message looks at how we kill our own spiritual lives by the hatred and anger we have for one another. Scott also gives us a few practical ways to change our destructive thought patterns towards one another.
This Saturday night at Refuge Church, we celebrated our 3rd birthday! Lead Teacher Brian also started our series on the 10 Commandments this week, specifically the first 2 commands. Have some pizza and a slice of birthday cake while you check it out!
