Marriage brings both blessings and challenges, and sometimes we struggle to keep God’s perspective on it. This morning’s lesson is an overview of a great question: What Does God Expect of Me in My Marriage?
Different places in life bring different spiritual opportunities and challenges. While we all want our life to be filled with “the good times,” sadly, that’s often when our faith falters. What does God want us to know about living faithfully when things are good?
This Sunday is our “Two Languages, One Faith” worship service, where we worship together in both Spanish and English. Our Spanish minister, Moises Umana, presents our message this morning, a great encouragement to go through the pain of repentance in order to receive the better blessings…
Tonight’s worship service is led mostly by young men in our 20’s group. This audio file has the two devotional thoughts placed together, which were brought by Aarek Farmer and Isaac Barrantes.
This morning we study from the Old Testament prophet Obadiah, who wrote one of the shortest books in the Bible. Obadiah has a challenging lesson about how we view others: how does God want us to see people, including those who hurt us?
Tonight Matthew Higginbotham, our soon-to-be new youth minister, shares his first sermon with us here at Great Oaks, a great study from Luke 7:36-50. In this text, a woman interrupts a meal between Jesus and a Pharisee, provoking responses from both of them. What does it teach us about people, and what does it teach us about Jesus?
This morning Peter Welch takes us through one of the great life transformations in the Bible: the life of Simon Peter. As we watch Jesus change Peter’s life, it reminds us what Christ can do in our lives as well…
Tonight we complete our “Adventures in Bible Reading” studies with a series of events in the life of Jeremiah. It involves King Jehoiakim, the son of King Josiah, and it’s interesting (and sad) to notice how different the father and son were in their attitudes toward God’s word. What can we learn from it?
This morning we continue our “Adventures in Bible Reading” series with King Josiah and one of the great revivals in Scripture. How did they go so quickly from such a bad spiritual place to such a great one? It all began with rediscovering the word of God – how did that happen, and how can we do the same?
Tonight we continue our 2018 Wednesday Night Summer Series! Our series theme this year is “Summer Travels,” as we study some of the best-known biblical ‘travels.’ Tonight’s lesson is shared by Lance Foster of the Iuka Church of Christ (Iuka, MS), entitled: “Bringing the Gospel: Paul in Athens.”
