Due to the coronavirus, Refuge has been holding our gatherings as a Live Stream together. Below you can find a video recording of that live stream. This week I had the opportunity of teaching the Parable of the Talents from Luke 19 as we compared how three servants to a king invested his resources, and what implications this had for us modern day servants of King Jesus.
This is the audio from our live stream, the first week we were unable to gather together. Since I know some couldn’t attend, or maybe some want to give it a second listed, I thought it appropriate to post. We talked about the three pillars of Refuge; deep study, deep relationships and deep service and ideas for continuing that during our quarantine and this pandemic. We also shared this link refuge.church/virus where we will be sharing all things Refuge as it relates to this situation, and included a link for those who need financial assistance, or would like to donate to help those who need financial assistance.
Saturday night at Refuge Church, special guest speaker Scott Morrison continued our look at the book of Luke. In this story, a paralyzed man is brought to Jesus for healing. Initially, the crowd was too big to get close to him. So do they give up? No, they get creative and make it happen. This is what we’re supposed to do for our friends who don’t know Jesus.
Everyone has heard of a ‘Good Samaritan’….but where does this term actually come from? Saturday night at Refuge Church, lead teacher Brian talked about that very topic, as well as giving us our yearly “State of the Church” address as we continue our series in the book of Luke. Check it out!
Are you a worrier? Saturday night at Refuge Church, lead teacher Brian talk about that very topic from Luke 12. Jesus instructs us not to worry…but it’s not that easy. By the way, Ataraxia means a state of freedom from emotional disturbance and anxiety; tranquillity. So sit down, take a deep breath, and give this message a listen…
This week at Refuge Church, lead teacher Brian talked about the story of the Prodigal son. This is one of the most famous parables of Jesus, but as it turns out, there are 2 prodigal sons in this story. What does this mean, and why should we care? Check it out.
Last Saturday night at Refuge Church, guest speaker Matt Podrasky brought us a message about happiness and the ‘Attitudes that should be’. Is happiness the purpose of life? If we want to truly be happy, we need to see the world the way Jesus sees it. Grab your Jesus Shades and give it a look.
At Refuge Church on Saturday night, Lead Teacher Brian talked about the story of Jesus showing up to a funeral of a widow’s only son. Death is a natural part of life, but we see Jesus bend the natural, and bring her son back from the dead. It brings up an interesting question….should we pray for and expect this kind of miracle in our lives? Or was this just something that was done in Jesus’ day?
Saturday night at Refuge, Brian and Jaime brought us a message about healing and faith. Multiple times in the New Testament, we see Jesus heal someone in response to their faith. Does that mean that we are entitled to healing, as Christians? Check it out, and enjoy this acoustic music set.
Luke 7 & Daniel 3
This past Saturday night at Refuge, Lead Teacher Brian brought us the story of Jesus at a dinner party with a bunch of religious people. In this story, an uninvited guest shows up….the town prostitute. If the religious people were right, Jesus would have condemned this woman. Check it out, as we continue our series on the book of Luke.
