ALL FIRED UP!
Why are revivals so often "Short Lived?"  Don takes us to I Kings 18 and the story of Elijah and the Prophets of Baal to help us get a glimpse of how our Faith Journey sometimes has really powerful times of closeness to God and other times where Spiritual Lethargy takes over. This story gives us great hope and the sermon thoughts are practical and challenging. Included in this podcast is Communion Meditation by Chek Rippee and music from Central Wired Praise. May you draw close to the Father...and may HE help you to stay on fire for God! Shalom!

    20/20 VISION…Do You Have It?
    Scripture encourages us that "without vision, the people perish!" As we begin 2014, Don challenges us with 10 points of things that Central Christian WILL do before the year 2020, just 6 short years away. Some of these are very big dreams and are going to require a great deal of work, but with God's leading, we will "Follow the Presence of Yahweh" and He will make the path clear! Included in this is uplifting music from Central Wired Praise, and an inspiring Communion Devotional from Chad Beach! Our hope is that 2014 is your best year ever...and that God continues to lead this church into HIS likeness! Shalom

    The Call To Remember
    "Mary cherished these things in her heart..."-SHE REMEMBERED! As 2013 comes to a close, Don challenges us to REMEMBER all that God has done for us individually...AND collectively here at Central! The teaching comes from Deuteronomy 8, and challenges us to not worship other idols ("Our choices REVEAL our gods!") and to remember that all we have is from him! The study concludes with a powerful time of Communion with a song called "Remembrance!" May you be encouraged to "cherish" all God has done for you! Shalom!

    The Heaviest Christmas Ever!
    From the Hebrew, "glory" translates as "weight", and Don uses this study time to propose this statement: Earth has a WEIGHT problem, and we're not talking about "pounds!" We put GLORY and WEIGHT on things that don't deserve glory and can't handle the weight! We stress during the holidays about things that don't matter! And we miss a powerful lesson from those shepherds in the field-"An Angel of the Lord appeared to them  and the GLORY of the Lord shone all around them!" Included in this study is some encouraging music from Central Wired Praise, and a very special communion mediation from Jack Willis. May this Christmas be the HEAVIEST you've ever had, because you chose to put the Glory where it belongs! Shalom

    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!

We pray you have enjoyed this series! SHALOM!
