In this study, dig into the Scripture on the attributes of the God we lift our voices to.

With a focus in Psalms, Pastor Tom and Worship Coordinator Mike Russell team up to present a study on the key truths about God that lead us to worship.

“All the nations you have made will come and worship before you, O Lord; they will bring glory to your name. For you are great and do marvelous deeds; you alone are God.” Psalm 86:9-10

As Christians, we believe in the spiritual but at the same time, that truth is hard for some to understand. This problem is compounded when we are afraid or unwilling to educate ourselves in the Word of the spiritual realm around us.

In this study, we dive into spiritual warfare, which impacts our world daily. It is a longer study but after an hour investment, you will have deeper understanding of the interplay as well as feel more comfortable with this part of our existence.

Some of the key topics we cover in this study:

– The players within the spiritual realm (God, angels, Satan, demons, and us)
– How do we prepare for spiritual warfare which is in our lives either way
– What does spiritual warfare look like in the Bible
– What about the freaky stuff (demons, ghosts, and the like)
– What about the day to day spiritual warfare (temptation, guilt and the like)
– Why all this shouldn’t freak me out
– Opening our eyes to the victory!

This is also an overview that may introduce a topic you want to know more about. If so, feel free to learn more through your studies in the Word, get books to go deeper, or touch base with us and we will help you any way we can.

Blessings!

” For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” Ephesians 6: 12

Discernment

Discernment comes with spiritual maturity.

Often times, people tell me things like “I’m disappointed that God closed that door in that situation or relationship” or “Why would God have things be so hard in this situation since He led me here?”

Sometimes personal disappointment and hard days come from following God. Sometimes they come because we have messed up, taken a shortcut, not acted in integrity, or chosen the wrong people to draw close to us and then we attribute it to God.

Before you accredit God for where you are, make sure it was Him and not you. If it was Him, He will lead you through it and teach you in the process. If it is you, submit yourself to Him, turn around, and let Him lead you through the ripple effects and back to solid ground.

“I am your servant; give me discernment that I may understand your statutes.” Psalm 119: 125

“Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.” James 1: 27

Can you fix everyone’s problems? Does the church do enough to help others in this world? Do you? Does Jesus really say to take care of everyone’s needs at your own expense?

This study, we dig into the Bible to see just how vital it is that we are helping others and making a tangible difference. While there is overwhelming need in the world around us, there is instruction on how to know where you are to step in and how to do so.

We also cover how to help others when you are in need yourself. God does not call us to a life style that He does not provide for so a closer look in this area will be of benefit as well.
