RE:SETJanuary 2017

Have you ever wanted to reset your spiritual life? Have you ever felt as though you weren’t doing anything God wanted you to do? That you’d stopped responding to His commands? That you were stuck doing the same things over and over? Have you felt as though you needed to start over, but you didn’t know how to do that? Then join us during the month of January as we RE:SET! Let’s get back to the basics and understand God’s vision for our lives.

The Problem with ProximityDecember 24, 2016

How close are you to God? Close? Are you sure? In this powerful Christmas sermon, Pastor Johns shows how the Magi, who lived more than 800 miles from where Jesus was, were closer to Him than the Jews who were just around the corner. Close only counts in horseshoes and grenades.

Body LanguageOctober – December 2016

Who’s the most important member at your church? The deacon? The head elder? The pastor? In Body Language, Pastor Johns reinforces something we know, but forget all too often: the body (church) only works when all of its parts (members) are functioning at their peak. Try getting rid of your eyes or fingers and see how that works out for you. Over the next few weeks, we will learn how to become mission-focused, compassionate members of the body of Christ.

A Message from the MarginsOctober 22, 2016

When we look at the society that we live in, it seems that for many, hope is lost. God has called us, members of North, to show His love to those society has left on the margins. When you’ve truly had an encounter with the Savior, you’re equipped to share a message of hope and empowerment with the left behind, left out, and left back.

Should any part of the body fail to receive blood, it becomes hard, cold and lifeless. In this communion service, Pastor Johns exposes what may had led to Judas’ demise and admonishes us not to make the same mistake.
