Elijah - Burnout, Part 2, Running on Empty  

We all get tired sometimes. And sometimes in our tiredness we get to a point where we, like Elijah, say "I've had enough, Lord." Where do we go once we've reached that point? How can we find refreshment and get moving again? In this message, Jill uses Elijah's story to teach us that God alone can refresh us just as He did for Elijah.

Martha - Busyness, Part 2, Running on Empty  

What does your daily schedule look like? Is it full of errands and events? Sometimes we become workaholics and worriers, filling our days with too many tasks and constant concerns about things we can't control rather than taking time to focus on the most important thing of all. In this message, Jill uses the example of Martha to show us instead how Jesus would want us to fill our time.

Naomi - Bitterness, Part 2, Running on Empty  

Life can be rough. Bad things happen. It's easy to take those bad things and walk down the road of bitterness where our relationships with friends and family suffer.

Hannah - Broken Dreams, Part 2, Running on Empty

Settling for More in Our Worship, Settling for More  

How do you feel about worship? Maybe you should ask yourself this question: Do you go to church to worship, or do you come to church worshiping? The latter should be what we strive to do.

In this message, Pete explains three biblical principles about worship that will help us deepen and strengthen our worship of Christ. 

Settling for More in Work, Settling for More  

Have you noticed society seems to define people by what they do for a living? Even though followers of Christ know this shouldn't be the case, we can fall into this and other wrong attitudes about our work.

Using Scripture as his guide, Pete Briscoe examines what our true motivation for work should be and what attitudes can hurt or help us in being who God wants us to be.

Settling for More in Prayer, Settling for More  

Prayer is simply a conversation with Jesus. What's important is the content of that conversation. In the book of Ephesians, the apostle Paul talked about prayer and listed three things we should pray for concerning our devotional life.

In this message, Pete shows us how we can apply those to our lives in hopes of experiencing a more abundant prayer life. 

Settling for More in My Relationships, Settling for More  

Many people would say that the relationship they have with their spouse, sibling, or best friend is something that is very special and important to them. Some may even say that their relationships "fulfill" them. But that was not God's intent. God wanted relationships to enhance our lives, not fulfill them.

In this message, Pete looks at the relationships in Jesus' life so that we can follow His example and make good decisions concerning our relationships. 

Settling for More in My Walk, Settling for More  

Do you ever feel burnt out in your Christian walk? Maybe you've done all the right things. You've read the Bible every day and you've volunteered at church events, but you still feel like there just has to be more. What's missing?

In this message, Pete explains the dramatic difference it can make in your life when you choose to make Christ your everything instead of simply your helper.

The Throne of Grace, The Throne of Grace  

How bold are you in approaching God? In Hebrews we are told that we can "approach the throne of grace with boldness." But when we sin, we tend to have one of two reactions: we rationalize or we hide. Why? Because we think that God loves us less when we sin.

The truth is that God loves you perfectly right now - nothing you do can make him love you more or love you less! In this message from Hebrews 5:1-10, Pete Briscoe explains how God's love helps us find this "boldness" and encourages us to be traffickers in grace.

The Silent Years, Lessons from the Boy Jesus  

Luke is the only Gospel writer who records this part of Jesus' life. Jesus is now a pre-adolescent. These years are known as "the silent years."

Jesus Presented at the Temple, Lessons from the Boy Jesus  

A pious young couple with a new baby meet two devout old people in the Temple. A chance meeting - or a divine appointment?

Savior, And He Shall Be Called  

Names meant something in biblical times. The name attached to a child would many times be a prophetic hope spoken over that baby. This was literally true when one of God's great prophets predicted the birth of a special child, hundreds of years before it took place. He called Him Wonderful, Counselor, Almighty God, Everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace.
