Jonah

Like Jonah, we are sometimes called to stand up for, or even preach, the Gospel in uncomfortable circumstances. Like Jonah, we are often more concerned with our own comfort than with loving God and our neighbors as we should. Like Jonah, we need to respond to God’s mercy in grateful obedience. Jonah reminds us of the extent to which God goes in pursuing us in our rebellion and in changing our hearts to honor and serve Him.

Week 8 // Jonah 4:5-11
3/22/15 // Alex Alexander

As we conclude the series on Jonah, the question that lingers is - Did Jonah finally learn the lessons that God was teaching him? Will Jonah learn to love the lost? Better yet, will we?

Week 7 // Jonah 4:1-4
3/15/15 // Lee Rutter

Jonah is angry that lost people are turning toward God. In this message we learn that our understanding of God's grace and mercy is directly connected with our extending of it!

Week 6 // Jonah 3:6-10
3/8/15 // Jeremy Self

If anyone was ever too far gone to experience God’s grace, it may very well have been the people of Nineveh…and, they weren’t. Join us this week as we see more about the scandalous grace of God and the response His grace calls for.

Week 5 // Jonah 3:1-5 
3/1/15 // Alex Alexander

Jonah is once again on dry land and given a second chance to obedient to God's call. In this message we discover a gracious God who relents, a God who rebukes, and a God who revives.

Week 4 // Jonah 1:17-2:10 
2/22/15 // Lee Rutter

In this message we consider an incredible prayer that Jonah prayed from inside the belly of the great fish. This prayer is a great example to us when we too find ourselves in a tight spot!

Week 3 // Jonah 1:11-16 
2/15/15 // Jeremy Self

Those who have chosen to follow God and are going where he has sent you…God’s grace goes with you. Those who have chosen to follow God and are being disobedient to go where God has sent you….God’s grace is pursuing you. Those who have yet to follow God…God’s grace is pursuing you….maybe in unexpected ways.

Week 2 // Jonah 1:4-10 
2/8/15 // Alex Alexander

In the second message of the series, we consider what affect our disobedience has on others - and learn, because of His great love for us, that God sometimes sends storms to make us more dependent upon Him.

Week 1 // Jonah 1:1-4 
2/1/15 // Lee Rutter

In this message we are introduced to the Prodigal Prophet Jonah. The prophet, the man of God, who tried to run away from God. But as we will learn throughout the series, it's really about a God who runs after us!
