Month: March 2014

March 30, 2014: “A Holy Mess: Understanding the Holy Spirit from the Book of Acts”

Big Idea:  Without exception and without delay, the Holy Spirit enters the life of every Christian believer for internal transformation and with power for ministry.


Christianity 101 – Starts April 20th!

101“When is a good time to bring someone to church who doesn’t know much about God?”

“Could you do a series of messages specifically designed for those new to Christianity or unfamiliar with Christianity?”

So, I’ve got enough questions like these the past several months to nudge me to something about it.

Thus, we are planning a 4-Week Sermon Series (called “Christianity 101”) beginning Easter Sunday that will walk through the ABCs of Christianity. So, start inviting your family and friends to Easter and the 3 following Sundays.

Here is the lineup of upcoming messages:

April 20: Why Easter?

April 27: Who is God?

May 4: Where is joy?

May 11: What about Jesus?

Hope to see you at 10AM each week at The Warehouse during this new series.

-Pastor Matt

Please join your brothers and sisters in Christ from all across Linn County on Palm Sunday at 6PM at First Assembly of God Church in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.


March 23, 2014: Acts 21-26 “On Mission”

Big Idea:  God puts people, places and passions on our heart, but they don’t always make sense.
