Once Upon a Time - Sermon Series 

The Bible is an epic story of God's pursuit of a prodigal people and his offer of redemption. It is about a God who goes to great lengths to reconnect with his children. And this incredible story includes you.

In this 9-part series, Buck and Mike introduce us to 8 different people in the Bible whose stories show us God's love and desire to have a relationship with us.

February 17, 2019 - Jesus – Payment

The ministry of Jesus on earth is the culmination of the entire story of the Bible since Adam. The blood of Jesus is the final payment for our sins. This is God’s new covenant with us. Luke 22:19-20

February 24, 2109 - You – Patience

Ever since Jesus walked on this earth, mankind has asked if now is the time He will establish His kingdom. We are the last chapter and He has invited each of us to be a part of His plan. When the church body comes together and uses their giftedness as God intended, great things happen for the Kingdom. Matthew 16:13-18

March 3, 2019 - God – Presence

We spend our time and money trying to make this heaven on earth, but there is no ultimate fulfillment in this life. This is just the beginning – our anticipation should be for the next life. We cannot even imagine what it will be like but we can believe what the Bible says about it. 1 John 5:4, Revelation 21:1-8, 21:22-23, 22:17
