  Date: Sunday, December 03, 2017       Teacher: Mark Smith     Duration: 31 mins 34 secs    
Passage: John 10:10    
  Description: It's the Christmas season, a time to celebrate Jesus' coming to earth. Naturally, the question is, why did he come? That's a question he answered. This week we'll look at the first of four reasons Jesus gave for his coming. He came to give us life, and give it abundantly. What does that mean? Does it matter to us personally? Those are the questions we'll try to answer in this message.
  Date: Sunday, November 26, 2017       Teacher: Mark Smith     Duration: 30 mins 46 secs    
Passage: John 3:16    
  Description: This final message on generosity looks at the power that generosity has, power to transform situations, futures, people, relationships, and even eternal destinies. We'll start by seeing the transforming power found in God's generous gift of his Son, given so we might be saved and have eternal life. We'll move on to see examples of lives and situations that were transformed by generosity, and conclude by deciding whether we would like to get in on the transforming power of generosity.

Passage: Luke 6:38    
  Description: The principle of generosity tells us that being generous benefits us more than it costs us. It is more blessed to give than to receive. But how is this true? Is there enough benefit to being generous to make it something we should promote? In this message, we'll start with a promise to the generous in the New Testament, and then look at other passages that speak about many benefits of being generous. Before we close we'll look at the results of a study published in 2014 that listed nine benefits of being generous and the conclusion that study made about promoting generosity. We'll then draw our own conclusions and suggest an application for this week.
  Date: Monday, October 30, 2017       Teacher: Mark Smith     Duration: 28 mins 56 secs    
  Description: We begin a four-part series on Generosity, the Joy of Giving More this week. We'll look at the concept of generosity in the Bible and the motivating principle behind the practice of generosity. We'll learn that generosity is not just giving, it is giving more than is needed, expected, or required. It is also giving with the right spirit. It is motivated by the simple truth Jesus revealed to us that it is more blessed to give than to receive. We'll get a chance to decide to be generous givers before the message is finished.
  Date: Sunday, October 22, 2017       Teacher: Mark Smith     Duration: 42 mins 49 secs    
  Description: In each of the conversion stories we've studied we found that someone played an important role in another person's salvation. This is God's plan: that each of us get involved in helping other people to be converted. But how? Last week we saw God might use our personal story of conversion to do this. This week we'll learn another way God can use us to help bring another person to conversion. It is a factor in a couple of the stories we've already studied and shows up in other places in the New Testament. We'll learn of a simple and practical way to put this method into practice.
  Date: Sunday, October 15, 2017       Teacher: Mark Smith     Duration: 41 mins 53 secs    
Passage: Acts 26:1-23    
  Description: Let's face it, our favorite conversion story will never feature an Ethiopian treasurer, a Roman proconsul, a successful business woman in Greece, or a respected intellectual in Athens. Our favorite story will be about us. It will be our conversion story. Our story can also be a tool God can use to help someone else have their own conversion story. We will see that today as the apostle Paul relates his conversion story for just that reason. And you'll learn how you can tell your story in a way that will engage people and help explain the good news to them. It's your favorite conversion story. Hopefully it become the way others come to have their own favorite conversion story.
  Date: Sunday, October 08, 2017       Teacher: Mark Smith     Duration: 48 mins 36 secs    
Passage: Acts 17:1-34    
  Description: Paul's missionary plans took an unexpected detour to Athens, but that led directly to the conversion of a respected intellectual there, a man named Dionysius. The intellectual spirit of Athens created a great challenge to the proclamation of the gospel, but Paul had been too stirred up by seeing the city drowning in idols to remain silent. His approach there was unique and suited to the situation, and was rewarded by the conversion of Dionysius, who tradition tells us served as the first bishop of Athens.
  Date: Sunday, October 01, 2017       Teacher: Mark Smith     Duration: 46 mins 12 secs    
Passage: Acts 16:16-40    
  Description: To be thrown in jail so someone can be converted doesn't sound like an experience too many of us would volunteer for. Paul and Silas didn't volunteer, either, but when they were beaten and thrown in prison their reaction to their treatment, and then God's miraculous intervention, brought the jailer and his family to Christ. The jailer's conversion is a great conversion story because of what led up to it, how it actually happened, and how quickly his heart was changed.
  Date: Sunday, September 24, 2017       Teacher: Mark Smith     Duration: 42 mins 40 secs    
  Description: Through an unusual set of circumstances, a successful businesswoman was converted. She quickly became an important link in the chain for other people to hear about Jesus, the Savior, and have the chance to be converted, too.
  Date: Sunday, September 17, 2017       Teacher: Mark Smith     Duration: 47 mins 1 sec    
  Description: This conversion story is special. First, it tells of the conversion of a very young man, not someone older like the Roman proconsul or the Roman centurion whose conversions we've already encountered. Second, it seems the primary people behind this young man's conversion are not relative strangers, as Peter, Philip, and Paul were to those whose conversions we've already studied, but people in his own home. Third, we discover in this story the important role of the Scriptures in preparing people to come to conversion. Follow along as we learn about the conversion of young Timothy.
