This week Pastor Greg Whaley begins a multiple week series of sermons from the book of James entitled Snapshots of Faith. This weeks installment Count it all Joy, from James 1: 2-4, teaches us that: we should count our suffering as joy, Christ is the power of our endurance through the trials of this life, our love for Christ  is the impetuous for us to press forward, and that we must fix our eyes on Jesus who suffered mightily for each of us.  Count suffering as Joy? How much further can we get from our cultural standard than that?

Our Picture of God: Jesus

In his first sermon as Interim Pastor, Greg Whaley uses John 10:22-31 as a basis to help us understand that the truest picture of  God is Jesus. Pastor Whaley teaches that our idea of God serves to inform our faith and wrong assumptions about God create disjointed and warped beliefs. Pastor Whaley identifies his personal understandings about who God is, and isn't, while challenging us to do the same.
