    Salvation’s Future, Present, and Past
    The Apostle Peter's first letter was written to the "elect exiles". These people were chosen by God, but they were outcasts from society. They were aliens in the land they were inhabiting. They were scattered because of extreme persecution. Peter is trying to see life through their perspective and answer their questions. How do you live with neighbors that hate you? How do you live with a government that is against you? Christians today sometimes ask the same questions. C.S Lewis said that if we find ourselves with a desire that nothing in his world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that we were made for another world. If that is where you are, Peter gives you something to hold on to.
    In this stand-alone message, Student Pastor Jace Williamson looks at 1 Peter 1:3-12 to show salvation's future glory, salvation's present trials, and salvation's past goals.

    God Speaks in the Storm
    As we watch events unfold in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, we may be overwhelmed by the devastation. We may be tempted to ask "Why, God?" How could a good God allow this to happen? Job encountered similar devastation in his own life, and although he didn't curse God, he did ask, "Why?" In Job 38, God answered, but not in the way Job expected. God gave Job some powerful questions to ponder. Job gained a new perspective, and his story gives us powerful lessons to learn.

    Consumers and Contributors
    We are born consumers. As infants, we rely on our parents to feed and clothe us. But as we grow, we learn to do these things for ourselves. And, as we mature, we learn to contribute more to our families and, eventually to society.
    Christians are intended to be contributors, both to the church and to the community. But many people who attend church are consumers. We want to sit and be fed rather than to serve. Jesus came, however, to move us from a self-centered, consumer mentality to an others-centered, contributor mentality.
    In this message, Pastor Mike draws from Matthew 16:24-28 to ask the question, "As a church will we be a collection of consumers, or a coalition of contributors?" We were born to consume, but we are born again to contribute.

    Who Do You Think You Are?
    Who do you think you are? It is a probing question. We struggle at times with our identity - not knowing our place in this world. We try to define who we are by what we wear, what we do for a living,the image that we present on social media. In this stand-alone message, Pastor Mike looks at Genesis 1:26-28 to see what God says about our identity, then examines Genesis 3:1-5 to expose what Satan tries to tell us about ourselves.
