    Encounter on the Water
    Series: VBS 2019
    This past week Valley Bible Church has hosted our Vacation Bible School. Today is the final session. Pastor Kevin will be teaching our kids and adults from the Gospel of Matthew chapter 14:22-33. Jesus had a powerful lesson to teach his disciples that night on the Sea of Galilee. Your faith like, like every other component of your life, needs focus. Without focus, there is no faith. Faith’s most basic definition is trust, but if you’re trust is scattered all over the place, it doesn’t actually trust in anyone or anything. Jesus urges us, the Holy Spirit helps us, keep our faith’s true focus.

    The Setting: On Mission Wherever You Are
    While on his second an third missionary journeys, the apostle Paul focused on two things: spreading the Gospel and strengthening the church.  As we look at parts of this ministry in this session, we will discover that God's primary calling on all of our lives is to be on His mission, regardless of what our day jobs are.  As a result, we will also learn how to see our occupations as platforms for proclaiming the Gospel and discover new ways to mentor and strengthen those around us. Focusing on these two things will help us leave a legacy of faithfulness for those behind us.

    The Culture: Idolatrous but Intrigued
    In today's message in the Gospel Project, The Church on Mission, Pastor Kevin will cover Acts chapter 17.  In this study we learn how Paul interacted with the men and women of Athens.  Paul understood that the Gospel must be presented in a way that is comprehensible to people in different cultures.  As a result, when Paul reasoned with those in Athens, he found points of contact between the biblical view of the world and that of Greek culture.  Paul's message focused on the risen Jesus and included a fervent call to repentance.  Like Paul, we need to allow ourselves to be provoked by the idolatry of our culture so that we can boldly and sensitively proclaim the Gospel into it.

    The Message: “Christ Alone”
    In today's message in the Gospel Project, The Church on Mission, guest speaker Jonnie Achord will cover Acts chapter 15.  In this study we learn about one of the first crises the early church faced.  As Gentiles came to saving faith in Jesus, some of the Jewish believers struggled with them being saved apart from being circumcised according to the law.  In this session we see how the church handled a heated disagreement about the nature of salvation for Gentiles.  Were Gentiles saved by faith alone or must they enter into salvation through the path of obedience to the law first?  The Jerusalem Council that was convened to answer this critical question offers us a good example of how to handle desputes in the church but also was vital in preserving the Gospel message of "Christ alone."

    The Method: Missionaries
    In today's message in the Gospel Project, The Church on Mission, Pastor Kevin will cover Acts chapters 13 and 14. In this study we learn how God sent out some of the first missionaries through His church. These missionaries were committed to following Jesus wherever He led them, even if that meant facing opposition to and suffering for the Gospel message they proclaimed. God used these missionaries not only to bring others into His family but also to strengthen and encourge the church itself as they saw God at work.

    A Spirit-Empowered Message for All
    In today's message, Pastor Kevin will discuss how Peter was led by the Holy Spirit to share the Gospel with a gentile.  This account takes place in Acts chapter 10.  God challenged Peter's tradition of "clean" and "unclean" foods in order to further challenge his perspective of "clean" and "unclean" people. God calls us not to show favoritism in sharing the Gospel but to extend the call of salvation to all people.  So without any further delay let's join our teacher for today's lesson.

    Series: Easter Week
    Today is the culmination of our journey together through the events of Holy Week. We started with Palm Sunday and coming alive to Jesus’s life, which was above and beyond human understanding. On Good Friday, we did not look down in fear or defeat but held our heads high in order to focus on the cross and come alive to the sacrifice Jesus made. And today we celebrate! Jesus is alive, and through His resurrection, we come alive to His power to change our lives and to transform each one of us into a new creation. The first four minutes of this recording is our children's Easter program. The recorded volume is a little low, but the rest of the recording is fine.
