Jeff Totten, Director of SCORE Ministries and Chaplain for the Detroit Tigers, kicks off the Church is a Team Sport sermon series, teaching from Nehemiah 3 about lessons learned from the teamwork of rebuilding the walls of Jerusalem. Jeff challenges us to evaluate and grow by focusing on things that God keeps a record of, including our ancestry, our actions, our advantages, and our attitudes.
Kevin Bolte reminds us that we serve a supernatural God (“That’s not natural!”) who has done the impossible by fulfilling hundreds of Old Testament prophecies about the coming Messiah when he sent us his Son, Jesus Christ. Last week we focused on the ancestry, birth and life of Jesus. This week, Kevin highlights a number of key prophecies about the ministry, death and resurrection of Christ.
Pastor Shane Stec teaches that Jesus is the only person that fulfills all of the hundreds of prophecies from the Old Testament. This week we look at a handful of prophecies about the the ancestry, birth and life of Jesus and the reality that his fulfillment of these prophecies provides powerful, supernatural proof of his identity as the promised Messiah.
Pastor Shane Stec teaches from John 20:19-31 that not only was Jesus sent into the world to save us, but that when we are saved, we are also sent to continue Jesus’ mission.
