The Amazing Race

Power Point is HERE.
Podcast is HERE.

Thanks Win for helping with the interviews this weekend!

Attention runners! This weekend my sermon will include stories from the men's marathon Olympic Trials, Western States 100, and a live interview with Win VanPelt. You might want to come and check it out! Should be fun...It's the first part of a series we're doing called "Reality" and my message is a reality spin-off entitled "The Amazing Race". The podcast will also be put on our website on Sunday afternoon (

Attention non-runners! Why did God select the metaphor of a race when He described our lives? Apparently He thought it was something everyone could relate to, even if all are not runners. Consider Hebrews 12:1-3, 1 Corinthians 9:24-27 and 2 Timothy 4:7-8. These are the texts we will be looking at. Life presents us all with challenges that require perseverance.

See you this weekend (Saturday at 6 p.m., or Sunday at 9 a.m. or 11:11 a.m.).

Pastor Matt,

This message went to my bones. My note taking pen practically went dry it was working so fast. I appreciate how you make God's message to us real and applicable. And His love for us always illuminates, and you help us see where/how we creat our own problems; and despite ourselves, God still wants to help if we want it. My life skill tool box always builds when I listen to your teaching. So again, thank you.
