Redemptive Compassion

Our pastor’s wife, Jenni Hypes is also the executive director of our local chapter of Love INC. While Pastor Tom was out of town, Jenni shares this message on how you can be part of redemptive compassion in the lives of others!



Chosen: Elders

What is the Biblical model of church leadership? How do we choose leaders that bring fruit instead of pain and chaos? Is a pastor the shepherd or is Jesus? Can a woman be an elder? Can a divorced man be an elder? What does it mean to be “above reproach”?

There’s a lot of questions about church leadership that the Bible has the answers to. Join us as we look at who elders are, what that means to anyone in the church, and why it’s an important topic for anyone who calls themselves a Christ follower.



Chosen: Big Dreams


What is a “big dream” that you are living in your life? Do you know? Do you still dream? Or have you given up on dreams?

In this study, we will be looking at God’s big dream…. not just for our lives…. but for YOUR life! What is it? It won’t look the same as everyone else but once you find it, it can change EVERYTHING!

Join us as we continue looking at what it means to be chosen by God. Through these Biblical truths, you can start dreaming and living again beyond what anyone else will tell you is possible!

Chosen: Called to Light

“But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for His own possession that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light!” I Peter 2: 9

In this study, we will focus into the second part of this key verse of our series. What is the contrast between darkness and light? Do they both have the same amount of power? How do we defeat darkness or is it even ours to conquer?

In this study, we go deep into these thoughts not just for ourselves but what it means for those around us!

Chosen: Be Complete

The most important step of being saved in Jesus is accepting Him as Leader and Forgiver in your life. It’s the first step. It’s not the last step.

The Bible invites us to grow to be more like Jesus! What does that mean? How can you gauge where you are and what are the next, best steps to grow in being a disciple? How can you get a little bit more freedom, purpose and power in your life today?

Far too many people accept Jesus in their lives and then stop there (outside of just trying to be a little nicer than they were yesterday). However, there is SO MUCH MORE!

We will be digging into I Peter to find these answers as well as discover a model we can use to evaluate our walk, see where He is leading us, and make some new strides!


Chosen: Perceptions

“The greatest single cause of atheism in the world today is Christians: who acknowledge Jesus with their lips, walk out the door, and deny Him by their lifestyle. That is what an unbelieving world simply finds unbelievable.” ― Brennan Manning

As those chosen to be on God’s team, it’s time to look at how our lives are then changed.

In this study, we will be digging into the letter from Peter and what he had to share on real life change! He has some great truths about how our lives can be so much more!

The main truth we find is that your perception dictates the choices you make. To have real life change, Peter suggests some perception changes for your life!



We invite you to join us as we start a new study called CHOSEN. As we travel through I Peter, we will discover God’s call on your life, and purpose for your life.

So often we are swayed by how well or how badly things are going, and we get caught up in other people’s opinion of us. The truth is, God’s love for us is constant—even when we are at our worst, nothing changes the fact that we are chosen by Him.

In this study, we will look at the type of player you are on His team. By recalling some gym class memories, we see the different types of players usually end up on a team (the good and the bad) and be encouraged on how to be the type of player that loves the game, encouraged others, and leaves it all out on the field! tsflife.com
