the big idea:

There are so many situations and experiences in life that leave us feeling empty. Sin is ugly. It wreaks havoc in our lives. There is only one answer, only one Savior who can provide meaning and hope to the seeming hopelessness of life. That’s Jesus—who walked out of his own grave on Easter Sunday, the victor over sin and death.

In this series we will take an honest look at the struggle that sin brings to our everyday lives along with the feelings of emptiness it produces with the ultimate goal of discovering anew how the risen Jesus is the answer to our struggle and the solution to the emptiness we feel.

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. (1 Peter 1:3-4).


Empty Home

When our homes are not what we want them to be, the risen Jesus can come and make them full again. Yet, even more comforting is Jesus promise of a greater home in heaven.

Empty Life

When we’re looking for meaning and purpose in life, the empty tomb shows us how to work for things that really last. Sermon Text: Philippians 3

Empty Hands

When it seems as though we never have enough, the empty tomb is a reminder of how rich we really are. Look at all the spiritual blessings that you have right now in Christ Jesus. Jesus means contentment in the midst of whatever life situation we find ourselves in.  Scriptures:  Acts 24:10-21, Luke 24:13-25 Sermon Text:   Ephesians 1:3-14

Empty Heart

When dealing with life’s disappointments and disasters, the empty tomb brings healing to our hearts. Hopelessness turns to hope. Faith refined—hope in the midst of suffering. Sermon Text:  1 Peter 1:3-9
