More Than A Meal

It’s More Than A Meal…More Than A Bird In a couple of weeks, most of us are going to sit down around a table. Many of us with family we love. And we’re going to remember how blessed we are. We get to live in a great county, with amazing freedom. At this table, we’re…

Investigating Jesus, Part 2: Positioning Yourself To Receive From God

Luke starts the account of Jesus by talking about Zechariah and Mary. We have to ask ourselves, why would Luke choose to start here. If it was just because of the obvious facts of the story, Luke would have likely just stated the fact. There must be a reason Luke is telling us these two…

Investigating Jesus, Part 1: Why Did Luke Write His Account of Jesus?

As we get started in a brand new sermon series, we dig into Luke’s stated purposes for writing his account of Jesus. As we will discover, Luke the physician was very intentional and methodical in his approach to investigating the facts surrounding the life of Christ. His approach is going to define how we should…

Investigating Jesus: A Study Through Luke

As a church we are passionate about Jesus. In fact, if we are going to call ourselves ‘Christians’ we must be passionate about Jesus. But, do we really know who Jesus was? Do we really know what Jesus did? Do you know what Jesus said? Or has our understanding Jesus just been passed down to…

Walk Humbly

Your glory is too small a thing to live for.  It is not a good thing for God to oppose you. I, as a pastor, could not in any way recommend that you live your life in direct opposition to God. In fact, if I have any merit as a pastor, I ought to do…

Overflow, Part 6: The Right Purpose

We were created on purpose for a purpose. Each one of us has something unique to offer the Kingdom. Sadly, many of us never get there because we never get past our own selfishness. If we can’t understand that the reason God created us wasn’t simply for our own benefit, but also for the benefit…

Overflow, Part 5: Community Over Commodity

There has been a devastating shift in most people’s approach to church today. Something that we used to perceive as a lifetime commitment, has now become something we are only committed to as long as we are satisfied. We’ve started treating the family of church as a commodity to be consumed. In Part 5 of…

Overflow, Part 4: The Right Actions

So far in this series we’ve talked about what real love is (Part 1), having the right motives in coming to Jesus (Part 2) and having the right identity (Part 3). This week, we take a look at the actions this kind of a life should produce. As we look at some key passages in…

Overflow, Part 3: The Right Identity

As we continue in our series, Overflow, we stop and take a look at where we find our identity. So many of us are looking for our identity in so many different places. But, where will we find who we were truly meant to be? Today, we take a look at what it means to…

Block Party 2017

If you’ve never heard of us or have no clue what 6:8 is, you may not know about our Block Party. Every year, the Saturday after Labor day, we do a free block party for our community. We love this community and count it a privilege to be a part of it. So, every year…

Overflow, Part 2: Motives

Now that we at least have an idea of what love is (part 1), we need to look at what is driving us. At the beginning of the day or at the end of the day, why are we driven to know God? What is the reason we are coming to God? We take a…

Overflow, Part 1: What Is Love?

What is love? And no, I’m not talking about a Saturday Night Live skit. What is real, authentic love? Our world is telling us one thing about love, but when we look at the Bible, we’ll see an entirely different idea all together. The question is, whose definition are we going to use? And that’s…

Where Are You?

Today, as we wind down from a full year of ministry at SixEight Church and just before we gear up for a brand new season of ministry this fall, we stop for one week and ask ourselves a very important question: Where are we? When it comes to our relationship with God, it can be…

Love The Lord With All Your Heart, Part 3: What Have We Done?

As we finish up this look at what is, according to Jesus, the greatest command, we find a very interesting scene that unfolds in Mark 12. Jesus is dialoging and being challenged by the Elders, Teachers of the Law, Pharisees, Herodians and others who were gathered there. What we discover is that there is actually…

Love The Lord With All Your Heart, Part 2: Soul, Strength & Mind

Last week, we covered the idea of loving God with all your heart. This week, we’re going to try to gain a better understanding of “Soul, Strength and Mind.” As we are going to learn, the point of it all is that God wants our sold out, all the chips on the table, commitment. But…

 

 

One Of My Biggest Struggles As A Pastor

One of the greatest struggles I face as the pastor of SixEight Church is knowing how to lead in a way that works for everyone. I don’t want anyone to feel like they’re left out. I don’t want anyone to feel like this just isn’t the church for them. The sad truth is, that’s impossible….

The Disciples Project, Module 2: Baptism and Holiness

Jesus’ command was to “Go into all the world and make disciples, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And I am with you always, even to the very end of the age.” We’re making disciples, and a part…
