What Is the Meaning of Life? | Full Sermon
What do you want in life? Or to put it differently, what’s the meaning of life? Pastor Phil Schaefer shows how Jesus asks these questions in the book of John when he meets the disciples, and Pastor Phil declares that the Holy Spirit is asking you these same questions today. God is inviting us to come and see. Along these lines, Phil says that discipleship can be summed up in two words: “Follow Me.” Now, you can question Jesus, you can doubt Jesus, you can challenge Jesus, you can debate Jesus, but you will not stop Jesus. He won’t be outrun. You can run as far and as fast as you can, but Jesus will still be there waiting and asking, “What are you looking for?”

A Long Obedience in the Same Direction | Full Sermon
What does it mean to have spiritual disciplines? Is being faithful simply about reading our Bibles, praying, coming to church and checking another spiritual task off of our checklists? Pastor Mike Acock doesn’t think so. Our lists tend to cause us to focus on ourselves and our sin, and ultimately, our report cards don’t tend to change our behavior. Instead, Pastor Mike calls us to focus on Jesus and who we are in Him. In other words, being spiritually disciplined is about having a relationship with Jesus, for He has already checked off all of our boxes on our behalf. What does that look practically? Well, one example is our Senior Pastor, Phil Schaefer who we honored today for his 35 years of living out the faithfulness of God in our midst. We do honor Pastor Phil, but we more fully celebrate the faithfulness of God that he has shown through Pastor Phil and his wife, Deb’s, lives. Watch the sermon for more on discovering God’s faithfulness.
