Relentless Grace – Lent 2019 – John 5:1-18
Series: LENT 2019
Have you ever wanted to the first one into the water? Maybe you were on vacation at a beautiful sandy beach, or maybe you were excited to jump into an inviting backyard pool during a sweltering Summer day... Regardless of your own situation, I doubt that you wanted to get into the water as badly as the man that Jesus approached in John 5. The Bible says that the man had been ill with something that had caused him paralysis for thirty-eight years! And he had been laying near to the edge of a pool found in the 1st century Jerusalem because when the waters were stirred, they were supposed to have healing powers... the problem was, you had to be the first one into the waters and he had no one to help him get into the water before others who were gathered for the same reason. We would like to invite you to turn in your own Bible to John 5, and download the teaching notes as you prepare to listen to the following message by Pastor Anton. We hope and trust you will be encouraged.

    Relentless Grace – Lent 2019 – Mark 2:1-12
    Series: LENT 2019
     Consider the story of Jesus healing the man who was paralyzed from the Gospels. In the Gospel of Mark, which has the most lengthy account of the event's parallel accounts, (Matthew 9:1-8, and Luke 5:17-26) we read of a large crowd of people gathering at a home to hear Jesus teach. Five men arrive after the house is already filled and overflowing, one of them being carried by the others on a mat. Once lowered through the roof, Jesus tells the man that his "sins are forgiven." This is an outrageous statement to the teachers of the Law, and to prove that the "Son of Man" has the authority to forgive sins, Jesus then heals the man. The man who was lowered through the roof moments earlier is now walking through the crowded house to exit. We would like to invite you to turn in your own Bible to Mark 2, as you prepare to listen to the following message by Pastor Anton.

    Generous – Stewardship Verses an Ownership Mentality – Genesis 39 and Luke 16:10-12
    If you were asked what the difference was between a steward and an owner, what sorts of things would you list as distinctions between the two? According to the Word of God, the Lord often speaks to us in terms of us being "stewards" or "managers" of the time, talents and treasures that we often claim as our own. In the following message by Pastor Anton, he will be teaching on this biblical principle of stewardship. We would like to invite you to download the teaching notes and turn in your own Bible to Psalm 24 as you prepare to listen to this following message.

    What is the current condition and health of your heart? No, I am not asking if you eat healthy foods, exercise regularly, sleep an appropriate amount, and that you keep your stress level down. I am asking how healthy is your heart when it comes to "giving" versus "getting." In the following message by Pastor Anton, he will be comparing two different kinds of hearts. The heart of a very wealthy King who lived around 1000 B.C. and also the hearts of a New Testament group of believers that lived around 100 A.D.  I invite you to download the teaching notes and open your Bible to 1st Kings chapter 10 as you prepare to listen to the following message.

    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.
