Last Saturday Night at Refuge Church, special guest speaker Scott Morrison talked to us about Addiction and Idols in Acts 19. Are you struggling with addictions? You are not alone!
At Refuge Church last Saturday night, Pastor Brian talked about The Apostle Paul’s Missionary Journey through Athens. He’s disturbed by the number of man made idols he sees. We tend to think of idols as little statues, but anything can become an idol in our lives, from our Kids to our cellphones. An Idol is anything that comes before God. What is an idol in your life?
On Saturday Evening, Pastor Brian gave us his ‘First Ever’ Mother’s Day Sermon at Refuge Church. Check out this very special message, as we honor our mothers. Jesus honored His mother, and so should we.
At Refuge Church this past Saturday night, Pastor Brian finishes up the Book of John. He talked about Jesus’ command for us to feed His sheep. Jesus is referring to His followers. We were made for community. Don’t do life alone!
This past Saturday evening at Refuge Church Pastor Brian talks about the last chapter of the Book of John. After the resurrection, Jesus appears to the disciples while they are fishing. He prepares a meal for them on the shore, and asks Peter the question “Do you love me?”. It seems like a simple question, but he asks 3 times. Seriously….how would YOU answer?
Since Christmas, we’ve been reading through and studying the Gospel of John as a Church. We’ve not only gotten to know Jesus and better see his beauty, but we’ve also gotten to know the author John a little as well. He writes like a poet, using words to give us an intimate glimpse of his friend and Savior.
This past Saturday evening, Pastor Brian talks about Simon Peter, and how pride crept into this life. Peter says he’ll never deny Jesus, but is that really true? Would you deny Jesus? Check this out, it is our last stop before Easter.
This past Saturday night at Refuge Church was a holy night. A night set apart from our regular worship gatherings, as we looked the perhaps the holiest words in the New Testament, a prayer of Jesus just before his death on the cross. In John 17, we get to eavesdrop on a conversation between God the Son to God the Father.
And, we began a new habit of prayer together as a church. A commitment to pray together morning, noon and night. Listen to the full message (we also included the worship time at the end). Then refer below for complete instructions for our daily corporate prayer time together.
Daily Corporate Prayer (together as a church)
- 8am // Pray for Yourself
- 12pm // Pray for Refuge
- 6pm // Pray for The Church
This past Saturday night at Refuge Church we continued in the Gospel of John. Jesus is giving a new horizon. Heaven. A place He (the creator of everything in the known universe) is going to ahead of us and preparing a room in the Father’s house for His children. A room that would make the Four Seasons look like a tent in my backyard. Thomas says … that’s great, but we don’t know how to get there. Jesus responds … I am the way, and the truth and the life.
This past Saturday night at Refuge Church we heard from local missionary and pastor of youth Dwayne Jackson as he taught on John 13:1-17; Jesus’ washing the disciples feet. God … the one who created heaven and earth, galaxies and cosmos and billions of stars, assuming the posture of a servant to wash dirt and grime from our filthy feet.
