The Person God Uses – Jeremiah 20:1-18
 Discouragement is a part of life. The Prophet Jeremiah experienced more than his fair share of discouragement throughout His lifetime and ministry. Often discouragement comes when we work hard at something for a lengthy amount of time and yet only have poor results or outcome on the other side of all the effort and commitment. Although none of us are exempt from discouragement, what we do with discouragement can make all the difference. There are some practical things that we can learn from Jeremiah's life and the Word of God. We would like to invite you to turn in your own Bible to Jeremiah 20 as you prepare to listen to the following message by Pastor Anton.

    The Person God Uses – Jeremiah 8-9:1 – Be Broken by What Breaks the Heart of God
    What breaks your heart? What injustice keeps you tossing and turning throughout the night? As we study the Word of God and specifically the book of Jeremiah, we find that there are many things that break the heart of God. If we know the truth from the Bible, God's Holy Word, about what breaks His heart, then we can match that against what breaks our heart. If there are things that break God's heart that don't even phase us, then we ought to look more closely at the scriptures to see if we have missed something. And if we know the truth of what breaks God's heart in our minds, then we ought to ask the Lord to create a passion and change within our heart to match His own. Please turn in your Bible to the book of Jeremiah as you prepare to listen to the following message by Pastor Anton Folz.

    The Perfect Father, in Heaven – Luke 12:22-34
    Series: (All)
    Have you ever struggled with your view of God Almighty as a "Father?" Many folks do! Often times it seems that we project the shortcomings and failures of our earthly Father onto a perfect Heavenly Father... and thus it distorts His true nature and character. In the following recorded message that was taught by Pastor Anton on Father's Day 2018, he examines the parts of God's nature revealed by Jesus in Luke 12:22-34 and other selected passages. When we have a fuller understanding of God as Father, then we need to understand what His responsibility are to us His adopted children, and furthermore what our role in the relationship ought to look like and how it ought to be lived out. We would like to invite you to download the teaching notes and turn in your own Bible to Luke 12 as you prepare to listen to the following message.

    Made for Worship (Part 2) – Psalm 57:1-11
    Series: (All)
     What is your natural reaction to when people are attacking you? Most likely your natural human reaction when going through a difficult season is not to praise the Lord. Yet when we read Psalm 57, the author David is in the midst of an enemy pursuing him wishing to kill him! He is in a cave, hiding from the King of Israel, Saul, and the king's armies. Yet in the midst of the cave, David's heart and mind are focused on God and His goodness. 
    Ultimately God received the glory when we choose to focus on Him and trust in His plan and provision for our lives, especially when we are walking through a difficult season of life. We would like to invite you to turn in your own Bible to Psalm 57 as you listen to Pastor Anton share about the importance of praising God even when times are tough.

    Have you ever been forcefully removed from your family or friends? Physically separated from their presence because of a terrible ailment or malady? For men, women or children living in the first century, this would have been a terrible reality for those who contract the awful disease known as leprosy. It was a strange and unknown sickness to the people, and thus they would separate that individual from the village and community, even their own spouse and children in hopes of keeping the ailment from spreading to others. 
    In Luke 17, Jesus is called upon by ten men with leprosy for "mercy." They were unclean men because of their ailment, and outside of a miracle, they would probably need to remain in a leprosy camp for the remainder of their lives... Separated from family and friends.

We trust that you will be encouraged and challenged in your faith journey.

     We as humans all have an impossible problem because of what the Bible explains to us as sin. We have "utterly helpless" when it comes to resolving this impossible solution on our own. Yet God offers us an incredible solution because of His incredible grace and kindness. Although we do not deserve it, God sent His one and only begotten Son Jesus to do for us what we could never do for ourselves. As a result of this undeserved kindness, we have the opportunity to gain so much! Not only eternity but a right relationship with God Almighty through the death and resurrection of Jesus! Surely this is a great reason to be thankful! Romans 5:11 (NLT) says, "So now we can rejoice in our wonderful new relationship with God because our Lord Jesus Christ has made us friends of God."
