Often when we talk about prayer, we say that we will pray for someone or something. But when you for someone or something, how many times do you really pray for them? If you're like many people, praying for someone or something means that you might pray about it once or twice. But what if God wants us to do more than just pray for? What if God want…
 
One of the most common definitions that you'll hear for prayer is that prayer is talking to God. And this means that many of us do all the talking when we pray. But prayer is really a two-way street. So a better definition is that prayer is talking with God. So, when we pray, we need to learn to do a better job of listening to God. In this sermon, …
 
As life begins to return to normal, many of us feel anxious about what the future holds. Whether it's taking off our masks, getting on an airplane, or eating inside a crowded restaurant again; there's a little to feel anxious about. So what do we do when we experience these occasional bouts of anxiety? What do we do when we feel like things are bey…
 
One of the biggest reasons that we don't fight fair with the people we love the most is that we have unrealistic expectations for the other people in our lives. We expect that everyone around us won't make mistakes or mess up. So, when we find out that our relationships aren't perfect, we can take it out on the people we're supposed to love. But, i…
 
You can't really fix a problem if you don't know what the problem is. But, when it comes to fighting with our family, we're often afraid to address a problem head-on. Instead, we behave in passive-aggressive ways hoping that the people we love the most will just magically know what's going on in our heads. But that's never going to happen. So, if w…
 
There's an old cliche that says there are three sides to every story - your side, their side, and what actually happened. One of our biggest problems when it comes to fighting fair is that we forget that not everyone sees things from the same perspective. In this sermon, we'll be reminded that we all see things differently. And we'll be talking abo…
 
Over the last year, we have all had a lot of moments where we've thought "If only I could do ______ then things would feel normal again." And, even as things begin to slowly return to some semblance of normal today, many of us are continuing to look forward to the future when we can this "if only" things once again. ​But, in our hurry to reach the …
 
As the world around us continues to change, our calling as a church has not. But the church is not capable of fulfilling that calling on its own. And that's because the church is not some self-sustaining organism. No, the church is made up of individuals - just like you. So, if the church is going to be who God has called us to be, we all have to d…
 
Have you ever had a moment where you found yourself ill-prepared for the circumstances you were facing? We all have...and that includes the church. ​As we resume worshiping in-person for the first time in more than a year, we're asking ourselves "So now what do we do?" Well, even though we're facing unprecedented times, our calling s a church has n…
 
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed nearly every aspect of our lives. It's changed the way we think about our health, the way we interact with others, the way we shop, and even the way we eat. So it seems like COVID-19 will also change the way we do church as well. ​And, although church will be different in the future, God's calling for our church ha…
 
Last year, we missed out on many of the moments that we look forward to each Easter. But as things start getting back to normal this year, we don't want to miss out on the meaning of Easter. ​This Easter at Melbourne Heights as we'll celebrate Jesus' resurrection and talk about what the resurrection means for each of us.…
 
After being viciously tortured, Jesus was unable to carry his own cross all the way to the place where he would be executed. So another man, Simon of Cyrene, was pulled from the crowds and forced to carry Jesus' cross. Although we don't know much about Simon, there are hints that this event changed his life forever. In this sermon, we'll see what w…
 
As Easter approaches, there are times when we can falsely believe that Jesus is the only one who died on a cross. But Jesus was far from the only one to ever experienced this horrific form of execution. ​As Jesus hung on the cross, he actually had another person on each side of him. And, as we look at how these two criminals behaved during the hard…
 
Only hours before he will be arrested and put on trial, Jesus gathers together with his disciples to share a meal in a borrowed room. We can only imagine how much the events that would soon unfold weighed on Jesus' mind that night. But in spite of what he would soon face, Jesus remains more focused on his disciples than he is on himself. So what ca…
 
Holy Week is filled with some of the most significant events in the entire Bible. From Jesus' triumphal entry, to the last supper, to the crucifixion. But on Holy Tuesday, we read a story about Jesus picking fruit? ​Why is this story of Jesus and the fig tree included in the stories of Holy Week? And more importantly, what can it teach us about how…
 
On Holy Monday, Jesus enters the Temple in Jerusalem...and he's not real happy about what he sees when he gets there. In this week's sermon, we're going to discuss what was happening in the Temple, why it was happening, and what made Jesus so angry. We'll also see what we can learn from Jesus' anger to help us continue to follow God when we face di…
 
Holy week begins with Jesus entering into Jerusalem. But there is far more to the story than Jesus coming to town. Everything in this story is meant to show us who Jesus is: Jesus is our king. But Jesus isn't treated like a king for long. Five days later Jesus will be crucified. But in the story of his entry in Jerusalem, we're reminded that nothin…
 
When you realize that God is present in your life every moment of every day, you should enjoy praising God and celebrating what he is doing in your life. But real worship is about more than just having a big ole party for God. Real worship also requires us to change ourselves for the God who is present in our lives. So, in this sermon, we'll talk a…
 
Our God is the God who created the heavens and the earth and everything in them...but our God isn't just a big and awesome God. Our God is also a God that is present in our lives every moment of every day. So how do we respond to God's presence in our lives? We respond by praising God. And praising God is about more than just singing a song or two.…
 
We come together every Sunday to worship...but what does that mean? Is worship just about watching a video for 45 minutes on a Sunday morning, or is there something more to it? ​Of course, there is more to it. In worship, we get to encounter God. So, in this sermon, we'll be talking about who God is and we'll try to understand why we sometimes forg…
 
It's been reported that the average American has about 5 hours of free time each day. So, as followers of Jesus, it's important for us to have some guidelines on how God wants us to use that free time. In this week's service, we're talking about three guidelines that you can use to make sure you are following God with the way you spend your free ti…
 
Throughout this new year, we've been talking about how we can follow Jesus in every area of our lives. So, in this service, we'll be talking about how we can follow God with our finances. And we know that nobody really likes when a church talks about money. But we promise we won't be talking about money like a late-night televangelist. Instead, we …
 
As we begin this new year, we want to help you follow the way of Jesus in every area of your life. And we tend to focus on three specific areas in our lives every new year. We focus on our health, our finances, and the way we spend our free time. ​This week, we'll be talking about how we can follow Jesus with our health and why God wants us to be a…
 
Every year about 60% of Americans make New Year's Resolutions. The majority of these resolutions have to do with our health, our finances, or the way we spend our free time. But no matter what you may resolve to do, your resolution becomes your top priority as the New Year begins. But there is only one thing that should be our top priority...and th…
 
Throughout this Christmas season, we have reminded you that even though COVID-19 has changed the way we'll celebrate this year that Christmas isn't cancelled. But there is something that can cancel the good news of this season...and that's the way that we keep Christmas throughout the year. So now that December 25th has passed for another year, you…
 
Christmas is a season of love. But we don't often stop to think about who it is that God truly loves. We only think about God loving people like us...but God loves everyone. ​God loves people we wouldn't invite to Christmas dinner or even send a Christmas card to. And God sent his son into this world to die for them. And that is the scandal of Chri…
 
Throughout this season, we have reminded you that Christmas isn't about how we celebrate...it's about who we celebrate. So, to help us better understand who we celebrate at Christmas, we have been exploring the story of Jesus's birth. This week, we'll explore the story of the shepherds. And we'll see what the shepherds' involvement in this story te…
 
When you were a kid you may have dreamed that you would grow up and become a firefighter, an astronaut, or a pilot. But for kids growing up in Israel 2,000 years ago, they would've dreamt of being the Messiah...and that includes Jesus's earthly father, Joseph. In this week's sermon, we'll see how Joseph's dreams helped him to realize who God is and…
 
We know that the way we celebrate Christmas is going to be different this year. But Christmas isn't really about how we celebrate...Christmas is about who we celebrate. So we're looking at different parts of the Christmas story to see what they can teach us about who Jesus is. This week, we'll be taking a closer look at Mary's part in the story and…
 
Although it would've been nice to only worry about items on our Christmas list that were back-ordered on Amazon or how we could avoid Aunt Agnes's fruit cake...it's becoming clear that this Christmas isn't going to be normal. ​So can we actually celebrate Christmas if we can't get together with our family and friends? Well, we'll see throughout thi…
 
Thanksgiving is only a few days away. And most years that means that we are making plans to travel to see our family, or heading down to our basements to pull out our card tables and extra chairs...but 2020 is different. So what do we do when Thanksgiving is only a few days away and we don't feel like we have much to be thankful for?…
 
Every kid has something that they want for Christmas. It might be a toy or a video game, a new pair of shoes or some fancy jewelry...but every kid dreams of finding something under their tree on Christmas morning. But this dream doesn't come true for every kid. In this sermon, we'll talk about what our church is doing to make Christmas dreams come …
 
After Election Day every four years, members of the winning political party begin to celebrate while members of the losing party tend to freak out. But instead of celebrating a win or grieving a loss, the days following an election are the perfect time to think about the work that still needs to be done to create the more perfect union that our fou…
 
If you've ever tuned in to a Presidential Debate or watched a couple of hours of cable news, you've seen the way that our world does politics today. But, as followers of Jesus, we're not part of the kingdoms of this world...we're part of a different kind of kingdom. In this sermon, we'll be talking about what that kingdom is all about.…
 
With the election less than a week away, many of us have had just about enough of politics for a while. That's because politics in America has become so partisan and so divisive. So how do we, as followers of Jesus, live out our faith in the face of the partisan political divide in our country? That's what we'll be talking about this Sunday.…
 
As we read the Bible, we are invited to be a part of God's story...but we don't always want other people to be involved in this story. So we write people off based on their covers. In this episode, we'll see how one of the most important stories in the New Testament would not have happened if God judged us by our covers.…
 
We all know that the Bible is important to us as followers of Jesus. But just because we know the Bible is important, that doesn't mean that we do a great job of actually reading it. So in this episode, we're going to give you three tips to help you read the Bible.
 
We have all heard the parable of the Prodigal Son...but even though we call this parable "The Prodigal Son" it isn't really about the son. This is a parable about the father and his mercy and love for all of his children. And that's the same way God feels about us.
 
The parable of the Good Samaritan might just be the most well-known parable that Jesus tells. But just because we've heard this parable before that doesn't mean we understand it. Because this parable isn't really about who your neighbor is...it's about so much more.
 
There's no question that we're going through a difficult time right now. When we face difficult times we have the choice to focus only on ourselves or to help others make it through. God created us to be heroes and to help others...but how often do we end up being the villains and only focus on ourselves?…
 
With everything that is happening in the world right now, it can be hard to see God at work in our world and in our lives. But in this week's service, we'll be reminded that God never abandons us...we just need to remember to focus on God.

A lot of us want to put our pastors on a pedestal. But no matter how great our pastors may be...they'll never be perfect. Our pastors will make mistakes and let you down. But in this week's sermon, we'll be reminded that our pastors aren't meant to be perfect, they're meant to point us to the one who is perfect.…
 
On July 15th, our pastor celebrated his 13th anniversary of being a pastor...he's spent 8 1/2 of those years with us at Melbourne Heights.
