Deserve Death, Receive Life

February 27th, 2015

When looking at everything wrong in the world today, it might be easy to seek out an external culprit and blame Satan or a more generic evil and while that might be true, there are passages in Romans which suggest the actual root of the problem is internal to each of us. So internal that the apostle Paul says the judgment we've earned ourselves is death. Join us as we study more deeply what...Romans 6:23, Romans 1:18­-25

Love Your Neighbor

February 13th, 2015

Jesus, when asked once what the most important commandment of all was, replied that the greatest commandment was to love God with all of our being. But then he added that there is a second part to this summary of the law that's just as important: to love our neighbor as we love ourselves. Today on Groundwork we'll listen to Jesus' take on what that really means.

Luke 10:25-37

Today on Groundwork we dig int...Matthew 22:34-40

Service & Giving

January 23rd, 2015

A lot of conversation in the church today centers on what the Bible teaches about sex and marriage. Our culture too is full of this debate, and people feel very passionate in talking about it. But in fact, the Bible says a lot more about money than it does about sex, though we don't seem to be quite as interested in hearing about that subject. Today on Groundwork we are going to talk about ...Matthew 6:19-21 & Luke 16:1-9

Silence & Solitude

January 16th, 2015

We can find lessons on practicing these disciplines in the Old Testament and we can study the ways Jesus regularly incorporated silence and solitude in his own life. So today on Groundwork we’ll talk about these intricately connected disciplines for our spiritual lives by studying biblical ex...Mark 1:35-39 & 1 Kings 19:11-13
