What's your passion? Many Americans today might respond with something like human rights, environmental conservation, or another form of activism - and while all these things are important, are they reason enough to live for? Join us for a special message from Senior Pastor Chris Brooks where we look to 1 Thessalonians to uncover the one thing most…
 
Over the last two weeks we’ve explored how the glory of God and His undeserved forgiveness compel us to share Him with others so they, too, can encounter His grace. Today we conclude our message series, Send Me: When God Calls Us to Go, by turning to Isaiah 6 where we learn how to listen for God to lead us - and how to respond when He does. Togethe…
 
It's easy to come up with a long list of reasons why we shouldn't talk to our neighbors about Jesus, isn't it? Perhaps we're sure they've heard it before - it's not like it would be news to them. Or maybe we assume someone else would do a much better job, so we pray for God to send someone better, smarter, and "more Christian" than us. But have you…
 
Throughout the pages of Scripture, God sends and His people go. From Moses to Matthew or Jonah to John, God sends those who have a relationship with Him. So, where is He sending you? Today we begin our newest message series, Send Me: When God Calls Us to Go. Over the next three weeks, we'll look to Isaiah 6 for a glimpse of the way God calls and co…
 
This Resurrection Sunday, we conclude our message series, Soul Food: When a Meal with Jesus was More than Food, by unpacking the last meal Jesus shared with His disciples before ascending to heaven. As we step into Luke's Gospel, we'll uncover that Jesus came to earth, lived the sinless life we never could, died in our place, and was raised again t…
 
Do you enjoy Jesus? Think about that statement for a moment. If you were able to sit down and have a meal with Jesus, would you enjoy being with Him? Some of us may jump to answer “yes,” but today we'll look deeper into our hearts for a more real and raw answer. We continue our message series, Soul Food: When a Meal with Jesus was More than Food, b…
 
As humans, we know what it feels like to be full, and what it feels like to be hungry. Over time, we learn what satisfies our bodies and what leaves us wanting better sustenance. If we're able, we adjust accordingly - like eating a sandwich for lunch instead of cotton candy. But have we applied that same principle to the rest of our lives? Or do we…
 
Jesus ate with “sinners” because he came to bring salvation to those who were sick with sin. Jesus pursues sinful people and invites us to his table to eat and experience His saving work. Sometimes I think we forget that includes us! Have we truly recognized and received that grace? Or have we taken Jesus for granted - or perhaps rejected His grace…
 
If you could invite any 4 people to a dinner party, living or dead, who would you choose? Follow up question: Why them? Maybe you'd choose those particular people because of their fame, a set of qualities you respect, or because they make you feel loved. We tend to view our relationships - or hypothetical guests - in light of what we stand to gain;…
 
We all know there are “sins” and then there are “SINS,” right? Whether we want to admit it or not, we’ve created a scale in our own minds defining which sins are worse than others - then we ask ourselves, how could God possibly forgive THOSE sinners? As we close our series, Jonah: At Odds with God, we come face-to-face with God's scandalous grace, …
 
From an early age we were taught to say “sorry” after we hurt someone or make a poor choice, but as we grow up we realize just saying “sorry” doesn’t always cut it. So, what does true repentance look like? As we continue our series, Jonah: At Odds with God, we begin to understand repentance is not simply confessing one’s sins or asking for forgiven…
 
Over the past few decades, the issue of discipline has come into question, as society has asked, "Is discipline effective? Necessary? If so, what kind?" In a similar fashion, we can, perhaps subconsciously, question whether God should correct us when we're in the wrong. For those who view God only as love and gentle goodness, to suggest He would br…
 
Have you ever feared someone? Not in a fear-for-your-own-safety kind of way, but a healthy fear that feels more like respect? Maybe you fear a boss, a mentor, a parent, or even a pastor this way. In Scripture, we're taught the importance of holding this type of fear - reverent fear - toward God. As we continue our series, Jonah: At Odds with God, w…
 
You’ve heard about that guy who got swallowed by a fish? That classic Bible story has breached church circles and even become a part of secular phrases. But, there may just be more beneath the surface of this story. Join us as we encounter a prophet who was not only angry with God but defied God’s desire to save people he didn’t like. Through Jonah…
 
As we draw the curtain on our current series, James: Live the Truth, we end on one of the most difficult truths and controversial topics among believers. Within these teachings, we're reminded that just because someone claims to have faith in Jesus doesn't mean they actually do. This brings us face-to-face with some tough questions: What is genuine…
 
It comes so naturally! We see someone and our brain makes a judgement call. When you look out at the world - when you meet other people - what do you see? How do you measure the people in your life? As we continue through our message series, James: Live the Truth, James earnestly pleads with us to measure people by God's standards, not our own. Lis…
 
From childhood we've been taught more money equals more happiness. The only thing that's changed over the years is the kind of possessions we desire. The toys and games that brought us happiness then have been replaced by the "need" for bigger houses, faster cars, name-brand clothes, and the newest devices. Sound familiar? Join us as we continue ou…
 
We’ve all been there one way or another - that point in life where you need to make a decision. Some decisions have easy answers, while others haunt our thoughts as we weigh our options. How often do we wonder which choice God wants us to make, but the Bible doesn’t spell it out for us? We pray and sit puzzled, asking ourselves, “How can I know wha…
 
Just believe. Live your truth. Sound familiar? In a culture preaching the power of whatever feels right to you, it’s time to set aside positive vibes for a Truth you can stand on. The Biblical book of James is a call to counter-cultural living – the kind that rejects the latest “feel good” message for a mature faith. A faith with deep roots produci…
 
As we turn to Luke 11:1 - 13, we discover that disciples of Jesus learn to pray. Together we'll be challenged and encouraged that we can access the presence and power of God by learning to pray. So listen with us in our newest message, Becoming a People of Prayer.저자 Woodside Bible Church Farmington Hills

Maybe you feel desperate for something to change…
 
From the beginning, laws have been an important part of society.
