Interrupted by Disaster

We begin our new worship series, “Interruptions.”  Each of us can tell stories how our plans for life were interrupted by unplanned circumstances.  Today we recognize how disasters can interrupt our lives.  But we also know that Jesus enters into our lives and uses all things for good as we love and trust Him. FIL […]

Pivot into Victory

Whether playing sports, board games, or any other competition we all want to win. We love the joy and celebration that goes along with the win.  Today we focus on Jesus who has won the victory over sin, death, and the devil.  Because of His victory, nothing can separate us from His love… nothing!   […]

Pivot Into Hope

Jesus has big plans. But we have to wait patiently for the last Day. In fact, we are not alone in our waiting. All of creation is waiting, groaning together for God to come back! Thank God we have the Spirit, interceding for us, and helping us to PIVOT to HOPE.   FIL Ministries helps people […]

Pivot Into Freedom

In our worship series, “PIVOT,” we hear how St. Paul, in Romans 8, calls us to move into positions of confidence in Christ.  Today we are called to “Pivot into Freedom.”  Often, without realizing, we are slaves to the sins that rob our lives of meaning, purpose and joy.  Through Christ, and His saving work, we are free to live the lives that the Lord has designed for us.

Pivot Into Peace

We are reminded that because of the craziness of COVID-19, we are all having to pivot from our “normal.”  We are trying to figure out what life, relationships, work, money, etc. look like.  Romans 8 is a pivot chapter in the book of Romans.  Our new life in Christ is marked with life and peace […]

Rest for the Restless

Do you find yourself exhausted by the demands of life? Jesus provides rest for the weary. But what does that mean? How can I live in the rest that Jesus promises? Today we will hear about the promised rest we have in the Jesus who is the Lord of life.     FIL Ministries helps […]

Jesus – The Word of Confidence

One day, if we are not alive at the second coming of Christ, we will all find ourselves in our last hour of life.  Jesus illustrated that we can simply place our lives into the hands of our Heavenly Father, who created us, sent His Son to save us, gave us of His Holy Spirit […]

Stephen – A Word of Forgiveness

What word might be more associated with Christians than forgiveness? Yet, how often are we portrayed or even seen as exactly the opposite? Judgmental, hypocritical… We talk often of forgiveness- which is the act of undoing wrongs that have been done. For Stephen, he forgave even with his final breath. His last words were, “Father, […]

The Word of Commitment

As we listen to the last words of Joseph of the Old Testament, we learn about commitment.  Commitment is an important part of life.  The Lord made a commitment to humanity and carried it out through a cross and tomb.  We are called on being committed to the Lord and to one another.   FIL […]

Joshua (God’s Faithfulness)

Trusting in the Lord’s will and following His lead in life is important, as His paths provide healthy living.  Life may not always work the way we want, but we must keep in mind that the Lord uses all things for good in our walk with Him.  God has always been faithful to us, keeping […]
