Time to Thrive

In this eight part series, we will be exploring God's vision for our church and for your household together. When we submit to God's plan for our lives, when we believe in the miraculous power of God, and when we commit to putting everything aside to pursue it, what could happen at WCC? What could happen at your house? Its time to thrive, not just survive at this house and your house.

Time to Celebrate

November 25, 2012 | 1 Corinthians 15:50-58 | discipleship

Pastor Gary Combs concludes the “Time to Thrive” series with this message from 1 Corinthians. The apostle Paul told the Corinthians that Christ’s victory over sin and death meant that they could live life to the full, knowing and celebrating that this victory was already theirs. And that everything they did for Christ would matter for eternity. Celebrating this victory that Christ has won, we can live life to the full, we can do more than just survive, we can thrive.

Time for Thanksgiving

November 18, 2012 | Psalm 100 | thankfulness, discipleship

Pastor Gary Combs continues the Time to Thrive sermon series with this message on being thankful from Psalm 100. Many are not thriving in life because of a grumbling attitude that steals their joy. Yet God wants us to live a life of thanksgiving. When we are thankful it changes our attitudes and perceptions on life. We can really thrive when we have an attitude of gratitude!

The end of this message was not captured on video. The complete audio is available on this page.

Time for Commitment

November 11, 2012 | Mark 10:17-31 | discipleship

Pastor Gary Combs continues the “Time to Thrive” series with this message from Mark 10 about the rich young ruler who asked, “What must I do to inherit eternal life?” Jesus told him that he “lacked one thing.” He needed to be fully committed, leaving everything behind to follow Jesus. This message asks us to consider whether there is any area of our lives that we haven’t fully committed to Christ.

Time for Sacrifice

November 4, 2012 | Romans 12:1-2 | generosity, discipleship

Pastor Gary Combs continues the “Time to Thrive” sermon series with this message from Romans 12 entitled: “Time for Sacrifice.” This message describes how we can truly thrive by offering ourselves as living sacrifices to God. It may seem counter intuitive, but giving yourself fully to God results in living a truly abundant life!
