You’ll Be Glad You Did

While it’s easy to recognize how past decisions landed us where we are today, it’s not so easy to predict where our current decisions will land us in the future. At every stage of life there are things that, if we do them right, we will look back on them in the next stage of life with gratitude. The present will become the past that shapes your future.

As A Young Adult

May 6, 2018 by Mark Stuenzi Message 1 of 6

When we’re young, we make decisions that have implications for the rest of our lives. As you grow older – you begin to reap the consequences of the choices you made when you were young. Our culture tells young adults to “sow their wild oats” and “get it out of their system” before they settle down. The habits we establish as young people will influence us for the rest of our lives.

As A Spouse

May 13, 2018 by Dan White Message 2 of 6

We all carry expectations with us into our relationships. But when things don’t go according to the dream the relationship can go downhill. Before long we are enduring instead of enjoying each other. The book of James tells us where this conflict comes from: misplaced desires. But there’s a surprising solution and it’s deeper than date nights, romance, or learning to fight fair. James shows us the link between our walk with God and our marriage. In this message, you'll discover that the most important gift you can give your marriage is your own walk with God.

As a Parent: Part 1

The goal of parenting could be summarized like this: To set them up for the day we send them off. As parents, we are preparing our kids for the day when they will be independent and make their own decisions. To do this well, we need to answer two questions as parents and influencers: What is the goal? What is my role? In Deuteronomy 6, Moses paints a challenging vision of multi-generational faithfulness.

As A Parent: Part 2

As parents, we are preparing our kids for the day when they will be independent and make their own decisions. There is an interesting parallel with the prayer of Jesus in John 17. As he was praying for his disciples, he said, “As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world.” He knew he had to send them out into the world, and yet he knew that the world would be antagonistic to what they believed.

As An Empty Nester

Our culture encourages us to accumulate as much as we can, retire as early as we can, and do as little as we can in our retirement years. But what if our later years could be the best years of investment in eternal pursuits? Maybe all the skills, life experience and wealth we accumulate are given to us for something more than serving ourselves. We should live with the next generation in mind.

When Death is Near

June 10, 2018 by Mark Stuenzi Message 6 of 6

When we come to the end of our lives, we want to know that we made a difference. We want to know that our lives counted for something. As he was nearing the end of his life, Paul wrote a letter to a young pastor named Timothy. In his closing words, Paul summarizes his life by saying, “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.” What would we have to do today for us to be able to say those words at the end of our lives?
