Generosity in Hospitality

Maslow’s hierarchy of needs explains that humans need to have physical needs met, feel safe, and have a sense of belonging to ready themselves for learning and engaging in activities that benefit others. This is exactly why hospitality is so important. Hospitality includes greetings, food, drink, and conversation. But it’s much more than that. The most important aspect of hospitality is how guests feel and what they take away when they leave. We show hospitality to others through serving them at church and in our community because of Christ’s example of hospitality in our own lives. Hebrews 13:1-3

Generosity in Invitations

The purpose of an invitation is to provide someone with an opportunity to build community and get to know about you. Church may be a foreign place, full of new people and focused on a God whom they may not know. However, with thoughtfulness, persistence, and the work of the Holy Spirit, we can help our guests feel comfortable at church and start on their path to victory. Matthew 9:9-12

Imitating God: Absurd Generosity

Absurd Generosity Imagine the world around you without God. Having a hard time doing this? That’s because it’s impossible. In this introduction to the series, we’ll recognize the absurd generosity that God shows to us, which sets the groundwork for why we give to others.

Sibling Rivalry

It is heartwarming to see siblings hug each other, hold hands, and interact in friendly ways. Unfortunately, this is not the status quo in many families. Sibling rivalry results in wrestling matches, hurtful words, and damaged relationships. Forgiveness doesn’t always come as easy as an apology, especially for adult siblings. But God calls us to forgive others as He forgives us, and this includes our siblings.
Sermon Text: Genesis 50

The Imperfect Family

The Bible is full of people who are a part of imperfect families, from Moses to Jacob to Jesus. With imperfect families can come pain and feelings of rejection. Although you may have been rejected, remember this: you are accepted by your new family. And you are always adopted and accepted by God. Scriptures: Exodus…

The Godliness of Singleness

Singleness is a gift Some of the most famous heroes of the Bible were single. John the Baptist, Paul, and Martha were all unmarried, and God used them for great things. Churches tend to emphasize married couples and children, but singles play a vital role in their extended families and their church families. Contrary to…

Parents, Don’t Obey Your Children

Parents, what’s up? Most parents will tell you that their children are their entire worlds.  However, there is danger in this.  A family that is focused on its children, rather than God, is going to experience struggles in relationships, finances, discipline, and more.  The best thing that a parent can do for a child is…

Wives, be the essential counterpart

The duties of wives has changed drastically since Jesus’ time on Earth. Yet, the Bible hasn’t changed. So what does that mean for the modern woman? It doesn’t mean she’s inferior or less important than her husband. Rather, she holds a sacred role in supporting and guiding her family, just as the Church is charged…

Husbands, Love Your Wives

Husbands have a huge responsibility. Men today feel the stress of supporting and caring for their families. Yet, God’s Word tells us that the most important responsibilities of a husband are to love his wife and guide his household to serve God. A God-fearing husband is the biggest blessing a family can have, so we’ll…
