Hebrews With Park Community Church

For the last couple of weeks, Park Community Church has been diving into the book of Hebrews. At Park, we tackle entire books, which causes us to dive deep and touch on all the tough issues that can be easy to skip over. Who would have thought that Hebrews could be so interesting!

Below are videos of the services that focus on the book of Hebrews. As we continue through the book, I’ll continue to update this post with the new videos. Stay tuned weekly for the updates.

[VIDEO] What It Means To Be A Disciple of Jesus

The term disciple often confuses people. Most of my friends who were brought up Christian think that the disciples of Jesus are the 12 that were with him throughout the New Testament. They were his disciples, but he had other disciples throughout that time as well. Today, we are called to be his disciples and make disciples of those around us.

Yesterday at church Jackson Crum, lead pastor, discussed  discipleship and what it means to live as a disciple of Jesus. He makes it easy for Christians of all walks to evaluate where they are at now in terms of Pursuing, Connecting and Investing, urging each of us to take small steps toward the life of our great guru and savior. Check it out!

[VIDEO] Lose Your Job? Dont worry.

Not too long ago, I went through a really hard time. A few months earlier I had found what I believed to be my “job of the future”. I would learn a lot and it would spring my career to the next level. In addition, it would help me to dig out of the hole that I had fallen into durring the job search. Bills pile up!

But the job wasn’t working out and I had only begun to get my finances back in order. On top of that, I was under tons of pressure from the folks at the office and putting in 12 hour days to try and make it work. It was brutal. The employer and I ended up parting ways (you can read about it here) and through it all, my wife kept asking why I was so ok with it.

Sure, during the last month I had moments of fear and worry. There were times when I would spend a minute or two paralyzed, thinking about it, but every day as I left work after everyone else and stepped out into the cold dark night, I turned my head toward the sky, smiled and thanked God for everything that was going on. There was something so liberating about taking an awful situation, one I should have been sick about, staring it in the face and saying “there’s more to life”.

Anyway, the lead pastor at our church giving this sermon just a few days later and I thought it fit perfectly with the theme. Key point: Worrying will not add one minute to your life. What worry or anxiety can you let go of?

[IMAGES] How do you show gratitude for what you’ve been given?

These images were sent to me in an email recently and they touched my heart. How do you show gratitude for what you’ve been given?

thanks to the little girl’s kidneys and liver.

These are my absolute favorite type of stories. The level of thought, creativity and sacrifice that people show in giving to others is amazing and reminds me of the grace that God shows to us. How can you go out there and make someone’s day today?

[VIDEO] Baptism FAQs Answered Scripturally

In this video, Jackson Crum talks about how Park Community Church views baptism by answering a variety of commonly asked questions. There is a little bit of explanation before he gets into the questions, but once he does, it really gets rolling. Enjoy!

A Simple Story That We Can’t Possibly Understand

A Simple Story That We Can't Possibly UnderstandThere’s nothing amazing about my coming to believe in Jesus and surrender myself to the will of God. I don’t remember the minute or the day or even the week for that matter, but then again, every Christian’s story seems a little lame when compared to the reason for our belief.

It’s simple, God’s son became man, walked with our ancestors, never committing a single sin and restrained his power while we mocked, tortured and killed him. While this was going on, he took all of our sins and placed them on himself so that we may be forgiven. Lies, murder, adultery, theft, disrespect, idolatry (worshiping money, sex, or other worldly things) corruption, lust, disobedience, even rape. All these, piled on his back so that we may have a one on one relationship with God.

That is the truly amazing story in its simple yet impossible to understand reality.
