SERMON SERIES

my radius

God has given us all a unique sphere of influence, or what we like to call  our radius.

As August begins and our calendars fill up with business in our radius for the next year, are we going to look like Jesus? Will we love God? Will we consider our neighbors more important than ourselves? Will we obey the truths of scripture? Are we going to be faithful to what God has called us to do?

During this sermon series, we will be reminded of who we are as a church and learn how to live up to our name as wefollow Jesus and then overflow – into our homes, our world, and our church.

REAL LIVES. REAL FAITH.

It’s something we talk about often here at RADIUS Church. It’s our tagline. It’s on our signs. We even wear it on t-shirts. We all know it’s important but do we really know what it is? Is it something we really live out?

Over the next 11 weeks, we will begin to understand real faith through the real lives of men and women just like us who are flawed and riding the ups and downs of life. In each story, we will see how, by faith, we too can endure, walk with God and point to Jesus – the faithful redeemer who is better than anything or anyone else.

REAL PRAYER

Do you ever feel like you don’t know what to say to God? Do you sometimes question whether prayer really changes things? Do you just skip prayer all together? After watching as Jesus prayed, even the disciples knew there was something missing from their own conversations with God. So they asked Jesus to teach them and He did. Join us as we learn as the disciples did from The Lord’s Prayer and as we pray together during Pray May.

WELL _____ WILL NEVER CHANGE

Satan uses big lies to discourage us and to lead us down a path far from God and “_______ will never change” is one of the biggest! 

Who is in your blank?

Is it a child, a parent, maybe your spouse, or just a noisy neighbor. Whether the person in your blank is someone you love, someone you resent, or someone who stirs up both of those emotions, an unchanging God is in the business of changing people’s lives and the person in your blank is NOT out of His reach.

THE RED LETTER PODCAST

The teachings of Jesus reveal something much greater than we constantly hear from the world. Jesus shows us ways we can withstand the pressures of life and change our perspective on what a good life looks like. But what is he offering us? How can we put it into practice?

Jesus’ teaching in the Sermon on the Mount turned the wisdom of the world upside down and showed us a better way of living that only exists when we put our trust in him. This radical new way is dedicated to God and free from hypocrisy and judgment.

The Red Letter Podcast will focus on the Sermon on the Mount from Matthew 5-7. It’s here that Jesus gives us a radical picture of what life in the Kingdom looks like.

NO REGERTS

Oh no. Regrets. We all have them. Your decisions determine the direction and quality of your life. And while nobody plans to complicate their life with bad decisions, far too many people have no plan to make good decisions. This series will help you think differently when it comes to the decisions we make. In this series we will discover five game-changing questions to ask every time you make a decision—questions that will help you in your finances, relationships, career, and more.

THE SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS

Jesus Christ came to the earth to bring love, joy and peace in a world filled with sin, pain and strife. The finished work of Christ has produced these fruits in the lives of His followers as empowered by the Holy Spirit. Christmas is a time to celebrate Jesus coming as He paves the way for the spirit filled life.

FREEDOM

In Fall 2022, we are going to walk through the book of Galatians. As followers of Jesus, we have been given this great, generous gift of the blood of Christ. It has set us free! In Galatians, Paul is fighting for us not to lose this freedom. He wants us to live as open-handed, free people.

THIS IS WHO WE ARE: LIVING GENEROUSLY

THIS is who we are. THIS should look courageous – and a little crazy! THIS changes your world, your church, and your home. THIS is contagious when done extravagantly and may encourage others to do THIS too. THIS is baffling when people watch it happen. God’s love for us is the ultimate example of THIS! Join us as we talk about THIS – Living Generously.

THE LIFE OF DAVID

It doesn’t get more REAL than the stories of David! We will explore his conflicted yet heroic life and why The Bible reserved for him the title “A man after God’s own heart.” Our King Jesus is worthy of an undivided heart with no rivals. Join us as we work on developing our own hearts for God as we look into the mirror of David’s life.

THE END

During hard times, doomsday predictions surface about whether the end of the world is near. We’ll spend two weeks studying Mark 13 together as we see that living in light of the end, being alert and prayerful, is much more important than knowing when it will come.

WE ARE | WE DO

Broken relationships, divided communities, racial injustice, war. Our world seems more fragmented than ever. As believers, how do we move forward?

Ephesians was written to believers in Ephesus during a similar time when the world felt heavy and dangerous. Still, this letter was written as an epic description of the fullness and the richness of life in Christ as we understand who WE ARE and what WE DO. 

If the Ephesians could grasp this. If WE, The Church, can grasp this- WE would overflow into our radius and the world could be transformed by The Gospel.

HE | SHE | HIS

Our culture is saturated in sexuality. Gender alterations, pronoun preferences, and new sexual identifications flood headlines, mass media, and even day-to-day conversations. If we want to live with a biblical worldview, we must have conversations around what it means to be designed male and female. We’re excited to have these discussions with you as we go through our sermon series: he | she | HIS

THE U

The summer is gone, and we’re heading into a new school season this Fall. That means it’s time to get back to the basics, back to our schedules, back to our rhythms. Rhythm: what does that mean for us at RADIUS Church? In simple terms, we want to make a habit of loving God and loving our neighbors in our “radius”. In this sermon series, we’ll learn how each of us can do this as individuals. We want to focus on the “U”.  A healthy U which means being intentional about letting the Holy Spirit pour into U. When this happens, we inevitably overflow into – Your home. Your world. Your church.
