Faith and Family

How is your family doing? How is your marriage? Your parenting? Your teens? What is the foundation of your family? In this series, we will look at how God wants us to have families that are built on faith.

How to Live Out a Faithful Marriage

July 26, 2015 | Ephesians 5:22-23 | family, marriage

Mike Laramee continues the sermon series “Faith and Family” with this message from Ephesians¬†5:22-33. In this message God’s design for marriage is discussed including descriptions of the biblical roles for husbands and wives.

Having Faith as a Foundation for Your Family

July 19, 2015 | Genesis 2:18-25 | family

In this introductory sermon to our Faith and Family series, Pastor Gary shows us how God designed the family from the very beginning to be under his authority, to pursue his purposes, and to be soaked in his grace. We must follow our Creator’s blueprint for the family, but also receive his grace as none of us are perfect parents, siblings, children or spouses.

9 Marks: The Traits of True Christian Character

We're digging in to the nine fruits of the Spirit from Galatians 5:22-23. When we walk with the Spirit, we begin to bear the mark of Jesus: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.

The Mark of Self-Control

July 12, 2015 | 2 Peter 1:1-6 | character, discipleship, fruit of the spirit

As we conclude our sermon series called, “Nine Marks”, we’re looking at the final fruit of the Spirit as found in Galatians 5:22-23. Technology and our culture make it evermore difficult to control our own desires. We learn through 2 Peter 1:1-6, though, that when Christ lives in us, he gives us his control so self-control ends up being more like “Christ-control”.

The Mark of Gentleness

July 5, 2015 | Ephesians 4:1-7 | character, discipleship, fruit of the spirit

As we continue our sermon series on the Nine Marks of true Christian character, Pastor Gary helped us see how the gentleness that Christ shows us can change our thoughts, actions, responses and relationships.
