Sermon Notes This is the last sermon in the series titled Chasing Idols. Why are you here tonight? Is it because you were dragged here against your will, it’s church time so that’s why you’re here, or because you want to please God. We’ve been discussing what people put into their heart if Jesus isn’t […]
Would Jesus hang out with you?
Are you the kind of person that Jesus would hang out with if he were around today? I find it amazing the kind of people that Jesus hung out with when he was on earth. He didn’t hang out with kings and government officials. He didn’t really spend most of his time hanging out with […]
Chasing Idols: Popularity
Sermon If this is the first time you’ve been here, we are currently studying through a series on idols. This series is designed to examine what happens in your heart. If Jesus isn’t the center of your world you will put something else in his place. These things that you replace Jesus with will let […]
Why are you here?
Why are you here? Pretty simple question until you really start to think about it. Why are you here on planet Earth? Chances are, how you answer this question describes your faith more than any other. Either you have the view that you’re here by accident (the result of cosmic chance), or you view your […]
The Job or Jesus?
It’s not like someone is going to put a gun to your head and make you choose… But if you had to choose, which is more important to you the job or Jesus? This seems like a pretty easy question on the surface, but dig a little deeper and it gets real hard real quick. […]

Chasing Idols: Promotion
Promotion: Examining Your Identity Jeff Struecker February 1, 2015 Sermon Notes If we were to be honest with each other, we would have to say that most churches say that they care about what you believe.

I’m Calling You Out
Have you ever had someone “call you out” on something? Getting “called out” means that you are being challenged about something. It’s the idea that someone is trying to put you in a position where you have to make a choice. I think it’s good for all of us to be “called out” from time […]
Chasing Idols: Plenty
Sermon Notes We have been going through the sermon series on idols and now we have to look at the topic of money. Our society usually runs to something other than Jesus to satisfy what is going down deep in our hearts. Nothing can fill that hole. Pleasure won’t do it, power won’t do it, […]
What did Jesus think about money?
Jesus taught about money often. Jesus talked about money often. Jesus challenged the way people think about money often. It’s pretty amazing to think about how much Jesus talked about money when he personally had almost no money. At his death, his earthly possessions amounted to the clothes on his back. Yet he never worried […]
