In this sermon on Ephesians 4, Adam Wiggins (our Groups Pastor) shares his heart behind community and groups at Storyline. God has wired us to live in community with each other, and when the church shows it is loving and unified, God's glory is visible to the watching world.

Goliath.

One of the Bible's most famous (or infamous) bad guys! This week, Pastor Ben begins a new sermon series about the Story of David, and he starts with a critical moment in the Shepherd King's life—the day he took down a giant.

 
What does it mean to strive for excellence? As Paul challenges the Thessalonicans, not only does he call them to pursue excellence in all of life, but he marks out Purity as one area in life they cannot afford to live without it.
“Learning to pray doesn’t offer us a less busy life; it offers us a less busy heart. In the midst of outer busyness.” (The Praying Life, Paul Miller) As we continue to study the book of 1 Thessalonians, this week we take a look at how Paul prayed for this baby church, and how can pray similarly for others.
What is Your Worldview? Each one of us has a worldview, whether we are conscious of it or not. What is yours? Pastor Ben guides us through the Christian worldview, explaining that the Bible makes sense of life's big questions. Even those who don't believe in the Christian worldview should at least want to, since it is founded upon grace rather than duty.

Become a Model!

No, not that kind—A spiritual role model, showing faithfulness that others can follow! Just like Paul strived to be a godly example for the Thessalonian church, you can make yours count by advancing the lives of others with integrity.

Believe it or not, the Apostle Paul was a church planter! As quickly as he could raise up solid leaders, he would leave that place in good hands and move on to the next city. This new sermon series zooms in on one of the churches Paul started during his ministry.

This is the Last Straw!

Human beings have limits on what we can handle, but what about God? Does God have such boundaries? When it comes to stress, of course not, but when it comes to human rebellion, yes. There is a limit to how much he is willing to put up with. In this week's sermon, we see God's patience run out for Saul.

How should we understand difficult passages throughout the Old Testament? What do we make of the violence in 1 Samuel 15:3? In this sermon, Pastor Ben shares how we can make sense of God's goodness and his judgment, his wrath and his grace.
There's an old saying, simple and true: Decisions determine destiny. In this week's message, we see how some impulsive decisions led to disaster for Saul, and how we can avoid making the same mistakes.
