Jesus on His Advent Part 1

What Jesus knows about His first Advent
 
In the Gospels, Jesus has a lot to say about His Advent. He knows why He came, Who sent Him, why He was sent in the way He was sent, His mission, what was not included in His mission, the motives behind His mission, why he was born in a common manger, and why the angels said, "For unto you is born this day in the city of David, a Savior, who is Christ the Lord."  As we begin our season of Advent this Sunday join us as we will celebrate His coming and reflect on Jesus' own explanation of His Advent.
 
Scripture:  John 3:1-21

One Word Part 5

"Koinonia"

Have you ever heard of the Greek word, Koinonia? It is usually translated in scripture as "Fellowship" but the word has a deeper meaning than the fellowship you might enjoy at a church potluck. When the word Koinonia is used it always depicts a life-altering relational connection between God and us who believe, as well as depicting the relational connection between all of us believers with each other. This community depicted is a significant and beautiful one and our question for this Sunday is "Have you experienced Koinonia?"

One Word Part 4

"Yahweh"

How do you address God? Most of us follow Jesus' invitation to address God as our Heavenly Father; which, when you think about it is an incredible privilege. But at other times God has declared His actual name and asked His people to know Him and address Him by that name. This Sunday we will look at a name that God called Himself. It's possible that knowing the meaning of this "One Word" name of God and will cause us to approach Him differently and respond to Him with more beauty.

One Word Part 3

"Marantha"

This Sunday we are continuing in our series on one significant and beautiful word in Scripture. This week is the word, "Maranatha" which means, The Lord is Coming. We will be looking at two letters written to the church in Thessaloniki. Paul explains the significance of the Lord coming and how it can encourage our faith. Join us this Sunday as we learn together.

One Word Part 1

"Selah"

We are beginning a new series of five messages on Sunday. The series is entitled, "One Word". We will look at five words, one at a time. These are Greek or Hebrew Biblical words that are beautiful and significant; words like Shalom, Maranatha and Koinonia. First in the series is the word "Selah". It is found 71 times in the Psalms and has a beautiful basic meaning: It means Pause and weighs the truth of what you have just heard. Sunday we will look at Psalm 46 (it mentions "Selah" three times) and together we will Pause and Be Still and Know that He is God.

Ephesians Part 21

"The Armor of God"

We're finishing up our summer series in Ephesians by looking at one last classic passage from Paul. It's the passage where Paul instructs us to (Ephesians 6:10-20) "Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil." Paul sees a dark spiritual force that is scheming against the followers of Jesus Christ and he wants us to be able to withstand these attacks. Is this a real battle? Are there malevolent spiritual forces of demons that attempt to influence and oppress us? Come Sunday as we look at what Paul has to say to us about how we can stand in God's armor.

"The Rhythm of Stewardship"

As our series comes to an end this is where we draw everything together. In this last message on Gospel Rhythms, we examine the role of stewardship. Is it odd to consider that as a member of Canyon Creek you own a portion of the building that we worship in each Sunday? You are committed and responsible for the ministry that flows from the community as a whole. This Sunday we will be in Exodus 18 learning about how God created a community that shared in responsibility so people could grow closer to Christ in that community.

"The Rhythm of God's Gifting"

This Sunday we are thrilled to continue in our "On Mission: Gospel Rhythms" series and discuss spiritual gifts. We will be looking into the Scriptures as we seek to answer the questions: "What are spiritual gifts?", "What are their purpose?", and "How do we discover our spiritual gift or gifts?" Come ready to worship and learn together.

"The Rhythm of God's Presence"

This Sunday the focus is on our Pursuits. What quickly enters the conversation when we discuss our pursuits is the need for an inventory of how and where we spend our limited time, energy and attention. It is a good practice to regularly examine how we expend and use our time and resources because we can easily get our priorities mixed up and out of balance. Jesus knew this and spoke directly to it many times. This Sunday we will look at parts of Matthew 6, Jesus' great sermon, and endeavor to examine our Pursuits and the use of our precious time. What is your first, second and third priority in life?
