The Pro-Life Jesus (Mark #15)

In our current political and cultural climate, the lives of certain people don’t seem to matter. Some Republicans don’t seem to think certain Democrats are worth much of anything. Some Black Lives Matters adherents don’t think too highly of Trump supporters. And many Twitter users are ready to cancel anyone who doesn’t agree with them 100%.

In Mark 5:1-20, Pastor Erin Bird shows us that anyone who claims to be a follower of Jesus HAS to be pro-life. And not just pro-babies, but pro-human. But how are you supposed to love someone who holds the complete opposite political or philosophical as you? Listen in to learn how.

The Four Chairs – Easter Sunday (Mark #6)

Every Easter Sunday, the global Church celebrates the resurrection of Jesus. But then most people who attend those churches just go back to regular life on Monday. Should the resurrection of Jesus impact the life you are living in 2020?

In a unique short-film sermon, Pastor Erin Bird teaches from the Parable of the Soils in Mark 4:1-20, helping us think about the type of legacy we want to leave behind when our time on earth is done. And he will argue that the resurrection of Jesus makes all the difference in the type of life you live.

Motivated by Jesus (Following Jesus #3)

Most people in life spend their time trying to be happy. They selfishly focus on whatever they believe will make life easier, more pleasurable, or more memorable.

But then there a few people who seem to devote the majority of their time to helping others. They are incredibly Unselfish. How do they do it?

By having a shift in their motivation.

In this message, Riverwood’s teaching pastor, Erin Bird, walks us through Colossians 3:1-17, helping us see how to make a shift in motivation in our spiritual lives that will help us not fall into a pit of selfishness, but a life filled with compassion, love, and peace.

Easter Changes Everything (Easter 2016)

Chances are  you’ve experienced a defining moment, an instance in time when everything changed. It could have been your wedding. It could have been a huge accomplishment. It could have been a car accident or the loss of a loved one. Whether good or bad, you knew that after this moment, life would be different. Everything changed.

For Christianity, the resurrection of Jesus is the defining moment. Without Easter, Christianity falls flat on its face. But with Easter, Christianity shows to not just be another world religion, but rather something that can change your life forever.

So listen in to learn how Easter can change everything for you.
