The Greatest Struggle of the Christian Life (Grow in Groups #2)

If someone asked you, “What’s your greatest struggle?” you might be tempted to respond something like “gossip,” or “lust,” or “overeating,” or “spending too much money,” or something else. No matter what your answer, though, THAT is not your greatest struggle.

To learn what your greatest struggle actually is, listen in to guest teacher Patrick Ray, who explains from Hebrews 10:11-14 what our biggest struggle actually is, and how being part of something like a Growth Group can help you radically overcome that struggle.

The Call to Groups

In America, we are quite independent as people, and many Jesus-followers bring this same independence into their spiritual growth. However, the writer of the biblical book of Hebrews encourages Jesus-followers to NOT go it alone in their pursuit of Christlikeness.

In this first message in the two-week “Grow in Groups” series, guest teacher Andrew Boone unpacks Hebrews 10:19-25, showing God’s call to all Jesus-followers to make Jesus-centered relationships an intentional part of their spiritual growth.

Speaking the Gospel (The Gospel #4)

Imagine a scientific lab that discovered a cure for cancer, but didn’t tell anyone. That would be awful, wouldn’t it? Yet on a spiritual level, many Jesus-followers know the “cure” for sin, but remain mum.

In this last message in “The Gospel” sermon series, Pastor Erin Bird shows from the book of Colossians that if someone is a Jesus-follower, it is expected he or she will “speak the gospel.” And as we’ll see, Jesus-followers are to speak the gospel to those who don’t know Jesus as well as to those who already follow Him.
