Surgery for the Soul: Week 5

Mark 12:28-33 What is the most important commandment in all of the Bible? This question was posed to Jesus by a Pharisee. When He answered, He also added a second commandment that was probably not expected. Scott looks at what does this mean for believers today? How do we go about it in today’s post-modern world?

Surgery for the Soul: Week 4

Mark 10:35-45 Two of Jesus’s disciples come to Him with a self-serving request. As was His style, He addressed the core of their request, and the other disciples grumbling, with a familiar statement. Scott Ritterbush delves into the meaning of this as well as looking closer at the idea of “The Common Good.”

Surgery for the Soul: Week 3

Mark 10:17-31 How do you view money? What does it mean to you? A young, rich man approaches Jesus and asks a question. He responds with a different question, and instructions which send the man away in sadness. Pastor Ritterbush looks at this story, and addresses greed and how money can effect us as believers, and what she should recognize.

Surgery for the Soul: Week 1

Mark 10:1-16 In the 21st century church, divorce is a reality that has impacted many families. Whether it’s growing up in a home that has been affected by or having gone through a divorce directly, it is a difficult topic to teach on. In the first of a two-week discussion on this topic, Pastor Scott looks at what Jesus says about it.

Peace, Joy, Justification: Week 3

Mark 9:42-48 Sin. It is something we all do, and struggle with. Senior Pastor Scott Ritterbush concludes this 3 week series by looking at the problem of sin, how it can affect those around you, and whether or not you view sin as a big deal.

Peace, Joy, Justification: Week 2

Mark 9:33-37 Justification is by the simplest definition: to be noticed. In this weeks passage, Jesus notices and pays attention to the least of the community during His time, and teaches us about doing the same. Scott brings the message this week.

Peace, Joy, Justification: Week 1

Mark 9:14-29 While continuing our year long journey through the book of Mark, Pastor Scott begins a new series called “Peace, Joy, Justification.” Jesus encounters his disciples arguing with scribes about a boy who has an evil spirit. Jesus heals the boy, and teaches the disciples a lesson of power and where you can fund your source of peace.

Faith That Won’t Fail: Week 6

Mark 9:1-13 In the classic 90’s movie Space Jam, when the Loony Toons are down at halftime of the basketball game, Bugs hands the team “Michael’s Secret Stuff,” (in reality water) which gives them the power to come back and win the game. In the challenges and trials we face in life, What “Secret Stuff” does God give us to come back?

Faith That Won’t Fail: Week 5

Mark 8:27-38 Everyone has seen pictures of beautiful scenery with a verse in front of it. One of the things that Scott Ritterbush mentions from time to time is that there are verses that you will not see on such prints. This week, the core of the message surrounds Mark 8:34, which he says is one of those verses you won’t see. He dissects the passage and what it means for believers today.
