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…

Love The Lord With All Your Heart, Part 1: What Drives Us

We’ve heard this verse a hundred times. We talk about our heart all the time. We encourage one another to “follow your heart.” But, is that really good advice? Do we even have a proper understanding of what our heart is? And what does it mean to love God with all our heart? Let’s dig…

Love Your Neighbor, Part 3: Love Is The Fulfillment of the Law

As we finish up this series on loving our neighbors, we take a very practical look at some of the things the Bible says to do and not do when it comes to loving our neighbors. In Leviticus 19, we hear about all the rules for living in community. Some of them seem out there,…

Love Your Neighbor, Part 2: The Good Samaritan

Right after Jesus told us about loving our neighbors, he gave us an illustration about what it really means to do that. It’s one of the most popular stories in the Bible, and yet there might be some elements of the story we gloss over because we’re so familiar with it. Listen in as we…

Love Your Neighbor, Part 1: The Way We Love One Another

One of Jesus’ most famous passages is where He tells us to Love our neighbor as ourself. It’s all over the place in our world, even secular media will throw that phrase around all the time. Where does this start though? We are supposed to love our neighbor, but can we love our neighbor if…

Own It, Part 3: My Mission

We’ve talked about owning our own faith and owning our church, but what about the mission God has given us? How does this faith that we have, that we experience when we’re together with our church family intersect with the rest of our lives? Or, do we even try to bring it all together? Maybe,…

Own It, Part 2: Lay Down the Controller

For many of us, church is something we attend. It’s the pastor’s thing. I come to it, when I feel like it, but it’s just something I do. Well, what if I told you church isn’t something you go to or do? And what if I told you that God has designed this community to…

Own It, Part 1: Pick Up The Controller

We talk a lot about faith. We are supposed to have faith in Jesus and that’s our “saving faith.” But, what does that mean? Is faith something we do or is it something else? We invite you to listen in as we cover this tough topic and try to gain a better and biblical understand…

O Captain, My Captain!

It’s a classic movie now (although I remember when it was first out!), but many of us still love that classic scene of Dead Poets Society where the students take a stand for their teacher, who they feel has been unfairly fired. As we take a look at Baptism, this serves as a good reminder…

Baptism Sunday, April 30th, 2017

The End…or is it, Part 3: All The More…

So, Christ died on the cross to pay for our sins, and we know that our old self was crucified with Him on that cross. And, Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father and we too receive this new life in Christ. What we thought was the end was only…

Journey Through The Empty Tomb, Day 48

Well, that was Easter. Jesus has Risen. Now what? Where do we go from here? Matthew 28:18-20, Luke 24:45-48; Acts 1:1-11; John 14:15-27; 15:26-27 The question we need to ask ourselves is: Are we just standing around looking at the empty tomb, or the fact that Jesus ascended? Or, are we actively pursuing the great…

The End…or is it? Part 2: #worstendingever

Have you ever spent two hours of your life watching a movie, only to have it end in a horrible way? “There’s two hours of my life I’ll never see again!” As we celebrate Easter, we take a look at Easter from the perspective of the Disciples who had been following Him for over three…

Journey Through The Empty Tomb, Day 47

It’s Resurrection Day! This is the day we live for as Christians! And, this account of the resurrection is stunning. It’s probably the one story in the Bible, where, if I could travel back in time, I would want to be a part of this story. Read along and celebrate the fact that Our God…

The End…or is it? Part 1, The Hyssop Branch/Who Made Jesus’ Cross?

Have you ever thought about the guy who made the cross that Jesus died on? And what about this part of the story where it mentions the wine-vinegar that was given to Jesus on a hyssop branch, what’s that all about? Listen in to part 1 of our new series “The End…or is it” to…

Or Is It?

All the epic stories have an epic ending. Often times there is some big twist that brings the whole story together. Other times the sweet moment of vindication happens as the villain is finally defeated. And then, that text comes on the screen: “The End.” As great as those two words might be in a…

prEaster Pancakes and Easter Egg Hunt

Can you believe Easter is just a week away? It’s right around the corner. It seems like Christmas was just yesterday, and most of us can’t believe that it’s already April, let alone time for Easter. Well. It’s here. And It’s time. Time for what? Food and fun! You may be thinking to yourself, “I’m…

Ephesians: Alive To Live, Part 7: Where Maturity Begins

In life, there are many things that we don’t think we’re ready for. So, often times, we will wait on them until we think we’re ready. We don’t think we’re ready to get married, so we keep waiting. We don’t think we’re ready to have kids, so we wait. But, as you’ve probably heard, if…
