    From Tragedy to Triumph

    When walking through the darkest valleys, believers can always have hope because of this key truth: God is for us and He is not against us!  The God of the universe is working for the good of His children who trust in Him no matter what circumstances come our way.   In this encouraging message, Pastor Jeff Schreve reminds us that by pressing into the Lord in the midst of our trials and hurts, His restoration will come to us who are faithful to trust Him for His goodness even when our life circumstances would lead us to believe otherwise.

    Wanted and Redeemed

    Loneliness, grief, and feelings of worthlessness are so prevalent in the lives of so many.  Those feelings, while very real, do not have to be the truths that guide our lives.   In this beautiful message, Pastor Jeff Schreve reminds us of the true meaning of redemption and what the Lord has done for each person on earth because He loves and wants them to be with Him and blessed by Him.  God thinks you are so valuable. So much so, that He gave His Son.  Isn’t that the truth you would rather live by?
