Join us as we walk through the book of Philippians Fall 2020 – Spring 2021. Paul’s circumstances were grim, yet he lived as a gospel-transformed person and was able to experience joy. God wants you to experience this kind of joy too.

An Encouraging Beginning | October 18th, 2020
God’s goal for our church is to become encouragers. As we study the book of Philippians, be praying that God does this transformative work within you.
For Me to Live is Christ | October 25th, 2020
True joy isn’t the result of a trouble-free life. True joy can be found when we first acknowledge that life is hard. We then acknowledge that God can turn our common hardships into something great. Finally, we acknowledge that to live is Christ and fully surrender to Him.
Living Worthy | November 1st, 2020
Has anyone ever called you a Christian hero before? Do you believe you are? We should be and we can be. In Philippians 1:27-30, we’ll look at what it means to be a Christian hero, how it happens, and where we get the power.
If Any…Then Love | November 8th, 2020
As humans living in a fallen world, we are afflicted with the disease of selfishness. We can try to manage it, but we never get it fully under control. The antidote is the Gospel and an eternal supply of everything our heart needs in Jesus.
If Any…Then Love Part 2 | November 15th, 2020
Is it impossible to count others as greater than ourselves since it so strongly opposes everything in our flesh? God’s Word tells us that, as Christians, we have been given the resurrection power of Jesus Christ living within us which makes it possible.
Work Out What God Worked In | November 22nd, 2020
What does it mean in Philippians 2:12 -13 that we should “work out your salvation with fear and trembling.” We’ll see that the Holy Spirit provides the Christian with both the desire and the working power to do what pleases God.
Hold Fast To The Word of Life | November 29th, 2020
Paul has given us the command to “work out our salvation with fear and trembling.” As the Holy Spirit works in us, we will shine in this world by holding fast to the Word of Life.
How to be Worthy of Honor | January 10th, 2021
When we look at how we look at honor and respect, is it something we give freely, or does it need to be earned? As we look at Phil. 2:19-30, we’ll explore this question in the context of Timothy and Epaphroditus.
Rejoice in the Lord | January 17th, 2021
As Christians we can truly rejoice in the Lord in all circumstances. This week we will look at the difference between happiness and joy and ways to train our hearts to rejoice.
Rejoice in the Lord, Part 2 | January 24th, 2021
As we stop placing our confidence in ourselves but instead place all our confidence in knowing Jesus, we can rejoice in the Lord. It comes as a feeling of inner gladness based upon God’s victory over sin and death.
Forget and Press On | January 31st, 2021
We take a deep dive into Philippians 3:7-16 and what it means to receive, forget and press on. These are instructions for how we can live in freedom of imputed righteousness which results in unexplainable to break out!
Like a Rock | February 7th, 2021
Does it seem like the world is growing more and more unstable? How can we stand firm? It is possible to have stability like a rock when everything around is like shifting sand. Paul tells us how to find peace in the principle through poise, prayer, and presence.
The Secret to Contentment | February 14th, 2021
We all long for contentment but why does it seem to allude us? Maybe we’re looking in the wrong places. As we look at Philippians 4:10-13, Paul has learned how to experience contentment in any and all circumstances. As we break this passage down, we see there are 5 main ingredients for us to live in contentment.
Give to Gain | February 21st, 2021
This week we look at how the way we spend our money reveals what we love. The scriptures describe the love of Jesus as influencing, satisfying and overruling other things we’d call needs.
