Who’s Your Daddy?
Knowing where you come from, can change where you are going! Don takes a look at Galatians 3:26-4:7 where Paul tells us that we were once SLAVES, but that our Father has ADOPTED us into His Family! As we look at how "adoption" works and how much it takes to make that move in a family, it makes us keenly aware of what a "Beloved Child of God" we really are! Included on this podcast is a very special communion meditation from Chek Rippee and music from Central Wired Praise! Shalom...and may you KNOW your Daddy...and know how MUCH He loves you!

    No Average Joe-PROMOTED!
    Is God GOOD...when life isn't?  We know He is...but do we LIVE like God is Good, even when our circumstances aren't? Don concludes the "No Average Joe" series by looking at how Joseph is returned to power and how he honors God...even in difficult situations. Included in this is worship from Central Wired Praise and a powerful Communion Meditation from John Bridges. May you be encouraged by the life of Joseph...and may your CHOICES reveal your GOD! Shalom

    No Average Joe-TESTED
    "OUR CHOICES REVEAL OUR GODS..." Don uses this statement to help us as we delve more into the life of Joseph. When he was tempted and tested, Joseph revealed who REALLY was Lord of his life. How do WE respond to temptation? Are there temptations that are going on in our life right now that we don't see? Dig into Genesis 39 and see lessons from the life of Joseph. Included in this podcast is music from Central Wired Praise! Enjoy...and Shalom!

    NO AVERAGE JOE-Abandoned
    Its the LONGEST story in the Old Testament...and it teaches us that we CAN make a difference, even when the culture around us is dark! Join us in this study of the life of Joseph called NO AVERAGE JOE! Don takes us on a journey from Genesis 37-50 and looks at what it feels like to be abandoned, betrayed & hopeless. Joseph had some choices to make...and they were not AVERAGE choices...they were EXCELLENT! Will you choose to be average? Included is a powerful Veterans Day Communion Devotional by Chad Beach, and worship music from Central Wired Praise! Enjoy...and Shalom!

    Wholly & Devoted To God!
    Our Guest Speaker today-Terry Blaschke- takes us on a journey back to King Asa from II Chronicles 14-16. He poses the question that in life, school, work, sports and many other areas, we are challenged to "work our hardest-put out our best", why is that not the same in our FAITH? Terry breaks down the story of Asa, his good & bad choices and challenges us to be IN the world, but not OF it! Included in this podcast, is a meditation from Rick Wilcher, and music from Central Wired Praise led by Janet Wilcher. We pray you are encouraged with this session!

    STRAIGHT SHOOTER-Words That Work
    Do your words HURT or WORK? Are they Refreshing or do they taste Bitter? Don continues this study of the Book of James, where in chapter 3, we discuss "Taming the Tongue". This chapter has been challenging Christ-followers for Centuries to "talk" like a Christ-follower, not just "look" like one! Included in this podcast is a very personal communion meditation by Robbie Loveall, and music from CentralWired Praise. "If a cup is filled with only good water, it cannot spill even one drop of bitter water, no matter how badly it is jarred." -Oswald Chambers We pray your are challenged and encouraged this week!

    STRAIGHT SHOOTER-Faith That Saves!
    Can SUCH faith save you? James asks us this question and challenges us to put "our money where our mouth is" when dealing with faith! Is it just a word we use on Sunday...or do we SHOW our faith in how we deal with PAIN and with THOSE AROUND US! Don takes us into James 2-"Faith Vs. Works" and shows us that it's Faith PRODUCES Works! Included in this podcast is communion meditation by Roy Buckley and worship music from Central Wired Praise! We hope you are encouraged...and that you show your faith! Shalom!

    STRAIGHT SHOOTER-Joy in Pain
    "I can take just about anything...if you give it to me STRAIGHT!" Don uses this theory to start a series on the Book of James. This book in the New Testament is sometimes harsh, sometimes challenging, but always "shoots straight"! In this first session, we look at how pain happens in our life and what our response to pain and endurance should be. Included in this session is worship music from Central Wired Praise, and an incredible Communion Meditation by John Bridges, that includes the song "He Will Carry Me" by Mark Schulz. We pray that this series-and in particular, this session-encourages you and reminds you that we serve a God that is bigger than the pain we are experiencing! Shalom

    What does it mean to be a MEMBER of the Body of Christ? And does "membership have privileges?" Yes, there are privileges...but there are responsibilities too!

Included in this podcast is a powerful Communion Meditation from Jack Willis and encouraging music from Central Wired Praise and a special tune at the end by Rend Collective-"Build Your Kingdom Here!"
