As people age they sometimes dream of living somewhere warmer.  One of the great things about Ohio is that it is not too cold, but we still get to experience the beauty and uniqueness of all four seasons.  Spiritually speaking, we all go through seasons as well.  While spring, summer, and fall are far better than winter, it is comforting to know that we are not alone, as we all have times like this.  Seasons are a normal and natural part of life, and God uses each and every one powerfully in our lives.  This series is about benefiting no matter where we find ourselves, yet taking appropriate steps to hasten the arrival of spring and the new life it offers!

  • winter

    MAY 30, 2021

    Pastor Rob closes out the series with winter.

    I suppose if we are going to talk about winter, it is good to do so at a warmer time of year.  While there are a few peculiar people who enjoy these months, most of us consider it our least favorite season.  The temperature is cold.  Things are frozen.  Things are dead.  There is a beauty at this time of year… not one you want to run and embrace, but rather one you want to respect and enjoy from a distance.  Come journey with us as we conclude this series and discover that there is value and hope when we find ourselves in the seasons of life that nobody wants to navigate!

  • autumn

    MAY 23, 2021

    Pastor Rob continues our illustration of spiritual seasons.

    The colors... the harvest... the reprieve from the summer heat... Autumn is awesome! But the reason for the beautiful colors is that those leaves are dying, and the trees that are preparing to drop them are getting ready for a time where they are dormant. This is a transitional period when we appreciate what has happened and prepare with concern for what is to come. What we do and accomplish at the time of harvest will make or break everything. Tune in and discover the most powerful part of the seasonal cycle! 

  • summer

    MAY 16, 2021

    Pastor Rob continues our illustration of spiritual seasons.

    Summer is a favorite time of year for many people.  It is warm out virtually all the time.  Things planted in the spring are growing.  A number of times the Bible references summer fruit.  We can be outside and the sun takes our skin from a pale white to a golden brown.  There is a lot to like about summer, but it is not all upside.  And if it were, can you ever have too much of a good thing?  Let's transition from a spiritual spring to a spiritual summer and discover what God has for us during the times we are walking through this season of life.

  • catch him in the act

    Mother's Day, 2021

    Bethany Paterson takes the stage this Mother's Day, talking about winning the battles in our minds.

    Most of us find it easy to love God, and we are learning to have God’s love for others.  But what does it look like to have God’s love for ourselves?  Our Heavenly Father wants us to see ourselves the way HE sees us, but our enemy wants nothing more than to keep that from happening!  Let’s learn together how our opposition operates so we can be quicker to catch him in the act!

  • Spring

    may 2, 2021

    Pastor Rob starts this new series relating our spiritual lives to his favorite time of year.

    I don’t know about you, but spring is my absolute favorite time of the year!  The cold begins to dissipate and warmth takes its place.  Flowers begin to pop and everything else starts recovering from the gray death of winter, as a blanket of green envelops the rest of the natural world.  We love seasons of spiritual spring as well!  The times of growth and new life, and not ones that come as the result of signifiant effort, but so much easier and more automatic.  If you have been walking through a dreary time of life, tune in for this Message, and experience the freshness of spring!
