25th February 2024 Finding Firm Ground Ps Josh Hartog

Daniel 4

Have you ever experienced losing your footing, or the ground falling away suddenly beneath your feet? It’s a horrible sensation. This Sunday we’re going to see how Nebuchadnezzar was experiencing ease and prosperity when suddenly his whole world was turned upside down. We’re going to look at how he found solid ground, and how you and I can find solid ground only in Jesus Christ.

18th February 2024 Stand Firm Under Pressure Jacob Greatbatch

Daniel 3

This week we’re looking at the well-known story of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego. We’ll see that idols are very real and alluring, that we face pressure to conform to our personal and cultural idols, and that God is with us in the furnaces we face when we stand firm under that pressure.

11th February 2024 The Kingdom That Stands Firm Jacob Greatbatch

Daniel 2:1-45

Sometimes it can seem like we live in a crazy, messed-up world, with lots of disturbing things happening all around us. As God’s people we can wonder where it’s all going to end up. Daniel chapter 2 gives us a model of how to live in this kind of world, and a reminder that we belong to a Kingdom – and a King – who will overcome the world.

4th February 2024 Stand Firm Against the World Ps Josh Hartog

We live in an amazing and beautiful world, but it’s also a world filled with temptations to fit in and be like everyone else. That was the temptation for Daniel and his friends, to compromise their faith and fit in. This Sunday we’re going to look at some of the ways the world uses to make us fit in, and how like Daniel we can stand against the world. If you want to stand firm for Jesus this sermon is for you.

Easter is the single-most significant event in the Christian calendar. It's the climax of the gospel, the heart of the Apostles' teaching, and the heart of the New Testament. But this Easter, I want to look at Easter in the Old Testament, through the prophet Isaiah.
