To close out our sermon series on the book of Philippians, Pastor Kaler Carpenter, Terri Bonney, and Will Negron joined Pastor Ryan Alsheimer to chat about what the book means to them personally and in ministry.
Paul finishes his letter to the Philippians by teaching about how joy is available even when you’ve lost everything else. Pastor Ryan Alsheimer preaches from Philippians 4 about how crucial it is to be content with everything that the Lord has given.
To celebrate the meaning of Easter, we focused on baptism; what it means, why we do it, and why the resurrection of Jesus is the key to it all. Pastor Ryan Alsheimer preached from Romans 6:3-12, and we had the honor of seeing 3 people get baptized!
Anxiety is the #1 mental health issue in the United States. Is it possible to have joy and peace in the midst of anxiety, worry, nervousness? The Apostle Paul believes so, and tells us in Philippians 4:2-9 how to defeat anxiety. Pastor Ryan Alsheimer preaches about how joy is available in anxiety.
What do we do when we’re discouraged and feel like giving up? In Philippians 3:12-4:1 the Apostle Paul writes to his friends from prison about the necessity of never giving up until we reach our goal of seeing Jesus face to face. Pastor Ryan Alsheimer preaches about why Christians should never give up, compromise, or surrender in this lifetime.
In Philippians 2:12-30, Paul gets very practical about how obedience to God leads to a lifestyle of joy, and gives some great examples of others who live in this humble obedience. Pastor Kaler Carpenter preaches about four major commands given in this passage that lead to joy.
Is it actually possible that life as a Christians is most fulfilling when we live for the benefit of other people? That sounds counterintuitive, but in the letter to the Philippians, the Apostle Paul writes about how this is the secret to a joyful life. Ultimately, we have the greatest example of this kind of life; Christ himself. Pastor Ryan Alsheimer preaches from Philippians 1:27-2:11
One of the only things that unifies all of humanity is also our greatest enemy: death. What happens when we die? Is there hope in death? Pastor Ryan Alsheimer preaches from Philippians, where the Apostle Paul dares to say that we can look forward to the joy that we will experience in our death, all because of Christ.
