“Love Extravagantly”

Pastor Craig Ham challenges us to give, in the same way the woman who anointed Jesus at Bethany gave, the gift of our most prized possession to Christ – our lives. Scripture: 14:1 It was now two days before the Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread.

When evening came, he was there alone, 24 but the boat by this time…

“Things I Wish Jesus Had Never Said” (Part 2)

Pastor Craig Ham continues his sermon series on the challenging words of Jesus, highlighting His caution that we cannot serve God and money. Scripture:  19 “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, 20 but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. 22 “The…

“The Glory Of God Revealed”

Ivy Parker, Genesis’ Director of Discipleship and Christian Nurture, uses Jesus’ first miracle of transforming water into wine to illustrate her message of how we can encounter the revelation of God’s glory.

“Easter Changes Everything!”

Pastor Craig Ham shares that though the story of Easter and the resurrection of Jesus is timeless and never changes, the impact and the truth of Jesus’ resurrection changes everything in our lives and future. Scripture:  24:1 But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they went to the tomb, taking the spices they had prepared. 2 And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb, 3 but when they went in they did not find the body of…

“The Journey Begins – The Mission Continues”

Pastor Craig Ham shares this Palm Sunday message about how Jesus upon his triumphal entry into Jerusalem was extending His commitment to God’s plan for us Scripture:  28 And when he had said these things, he went on ahead, going up to Jerusalem. 29 When he drew near to Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount that is called Olivet, he sent two of the disciples, 30 saying, “Go into the village in front of you, where on entering you will find a colt…
