Power over Creation – Mark 4:35-41
Jesus has power over creation.  Therefore, He steps into the created order and makes changes.  The disciples are in awe, but they really have no idea who this man is in their midst.  The miracle of the storm shows us who Jesus is, which gives us reason to trust.

    Witness – Mark 4:21-34
    Witness - God's Kingdom is hidden in plain sight.  We do not know how the Holy Spirit is working and what he is doing.  Yet, The Kingdom of God  is working to produce the harvest that God intends. Even though there are small seeds sewn, the Kingdom success does not depend on our feeble efforts, but on God's sovereignty.

    Reality of the World – Mark 4:1-20
    Reality Of the World - For many, Jesus' words go in one ear and out the other. In the parable of the sower, all the soils have heard the Word.  The sower has been successful in getting the seeds sown, what happens next depends on the soil. Therefore, how can we best sew the seeds of the Gospel?

    Aug 12, 2018
    A Bigger Battle – Mark 3:7-35
    A Bigger Battle - Jesus calls the 12 disciples, but they have to learn there is a difference between hanging around with Jesus and truly being with him. Their companionship is to lead to service that benefits others.  They are to become channels by which it touches others. Disciples follow Jesus and share the toils of the ministry and the harassment of the crowds. To be with Jesus is far more difficult than it sounds.

    Jesus Displays his Power – Mark 1:21-2:12
    Jesus teaches with authority.He heals diseases, and the crowd loves it! He declares the paralytics sins forgiven. The religious leaders bristle in the midst of Jesus' popularity.  He spends time alone with the Father.

    Calling – Mark 1:14-20 (& Mark 2:13-17)
    Calling - Jesus abruptly appears by the Sea of Galilee. He calls unsuspecting fisherman to be disciples, part of a community of followers. Jesus' call is to follow him. This is God's calling of us - a command with a promise, followed by obedience, with lives that will never be the same again. The force of Jesus' call propels them to follow him.  Does it do the same for you?

    The Beginning of Jesus Ministry – Mark 1:1-13
    The book of Mark starts in the wilderness. Then Jesus was baptized in the Jordan River, signifying his following God's call for him to bring out of the wilderness new life. The devil who tempts him, the beasts with him, and the angels who attend to him, all acknowledge that Jesus is the one who brings God's victory.

    STOP!!! – Exodus 20:8-11, Deuteronomy 5:12-15
    Series: Sabbath Rest
    The world is dying for lack of rest. We are working ourselves to death. God, in his wisdom, gave us the answer - Sabbath. Sabbath means "STOP!" It sounds so negative. But, God gave us Sabbath not to limit what we can do but free us to live more fully. In order to restore our souls, in order to refill our lives, in order to fill us with joy, maybe we should open the gift of the Sabbath?

    God didn't create us to be production machines. God didn't create us to be constantly busy. God created us to enjoy what he created. He created us to enjoy a relationship with himself, relationships with others, and enjoyment of his creation.

    Just the Way God Made Us, Part 1 – Small Church Essentials
    God has made Horizon the church he wants us to be. So, if we are just the way God made us, we are called to "be" that well. Instead of asking "Our church is small, so what?" we can ask, "Our church is small, now what?" and live out who God calls us to be. We'll look at how God calls us to be a strategic, healthy, and a great small church.

    Series: Love of God
    God has given us his word, the Bible, not just for the sake of giving us information. Through his word, God reveals himself. The author of Psalm 119 devotes himself to God’s instructions for life and holds onto God’s promises for obedient living. It is a call to be devoted to the word of God and to the God of the word.

Encountering Jesus on the Road Luke 24:13-35 & Acts 9:1-9
Road to Emmaus and Road to Damascus. Traveling on the roads of life, we encounter Jesus. Sometimes it’s really obvious – like Saul on the Road to Damascus. Sometimes we realize looking back that Jesus has been there all along – like the disciples on the Road to Emmaus. Part of traveling through our lives is opening of our eyes to the constant presence of Jesus.

    He is Not Here – Matthew 27:62-28:15
    Jesus rose from the dead. He is not there. Mary and Mary meet Jesus on the road and realize that he is risen. Then Jesus tells them to tell the disciples. The Pharisees realize this as well, but they don't want the truth to come out, so they come up with a conspiracy to deny the truth. The truth is - Jesus is Alive! Are we going to admit this or deny it?

    They Shouted “Crucify Him” – Matthew 27:11-31
    Here is the choice - release a convicted murder or release a perfect man. Seems easy, doesn't it? But maybe it's not? Who is more dangerous? The perfect Christ, who has authority over us, who convicts us of our sin and makes us realize who we are before a Holy God, or a know criminal who has done things much worse than we have?

    Betrayal – Matthew 26:47-27:10
    Betrayed. Not only by one of his disciples, Judas, but by one of his closest friends, Peter. Jesus is betrayed, not only by his disciples, but by each of us in our life as well. The question for us then is this: How do we respond? Judas and Peter both felt remorse. But there was a major difference: Peter repented, Judas felt regret and remorse. What is our response?

    There is a direct connection between our spiritual maturity and health and our attitudes and actions regarding our money and possessions. Jesus teaches more about our relationship to our money and possessions than heaven or hell, faith, or prayer. How we view these things is of eternal importance.
