As Pastor David ends his teaching on 1 Thessalonians, Chapter 5 encourages us to always be joyful in all things! Sometimes, if we do not fear, we find a deeper walk with our Lord Jesus in the “valleys” of life. We, as His Body need to constantly encourage one another, thanking God for ALL THINGS.

Listen in as our Student Pastor, Conner Lewis, teaches from Mark 4.
Charles Swindoll said, “God doesn't work on our timetable. He has a plan that He will execute perfectly and for the highest, greatest good of all, and for His ultimate glory.” For us, the hard part is letting go and trusting this.

Francis Frangipane said, “The thankful heart sees the best part of every situation.

When a mechanic works on your car and returns it to you, he has to approve of the work that has been done. God wants us to know that because of Jesus, He now approves of the work that we are doing. Listen in a Pastor David takes us deeper into what it means to leave a life “approved by God.”

FB Meyer said, ““The greatest tragedy of life is not unanswered prayer, buy unoffered prayer.” The Apostle Paul would agree. He speaks of “devoting yourselves to prayer” in chapter 4 of the book of Colossians. Listen in as Pastor David teaches on the importance of prayer.
One of the main themes of the book of Colossians is that we are to glorify Christ no matter what we are doing.

You may have heard the saying "don't put all your eggs in one basket." Well, for Christians, this is bad advice. Jesus is everything to a believer. He is our strength. He is our refuge.

We need God's help. One way He helps us is by encouraging us through His bride, the Church. Through Jesus, we now have the Holy Spirit to guide us as we dive deep with one another in community. If a church is going to be healthy, it's going to take a group of people looking to God to help them see one another as God sees them. Listen in as Pastor David teaches from Colossians 2.
God is not capable of making a mistake. This is an important truth to remember in the tough times and the easy ones, because it keeps us ground in Christ Jesus when we need Him most. Listen in as Pastor David teaches from Colossians 1.
When Paul writes to the church at Colossae, he doesn't mince words about how they should prioritize their lives. He tells them "in everything He might have the supremacy."
