Sunday Recap: September 4, 2016
Believing What's Real

This Week's Sermon: “Always More to the Story” (Daniel 3:8-4:3)
 
What are you placing your trust in today? What is the governing reality that is guiding the decisions you make and the way you live your life? Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego could have put their trust in the greatest powers of their day, or in their own abilities, but they chose faith in God above all. This is not a tale of great moral courage of men that dared to reach deep within themselves. This is a story of three men that learned to define their entire lives by trusting in the one true God that was more real to them than anything else could be.

Main idea: Make sure your faith is in something real. 

Sermon Application Questions / Sermon Slides
This sermon series: A Year of Biblical Literacy
Question #34: Since we are redeemed by grace alone, through faith alone, where does this faith come from?
 
Answer: All the gifts we receive from Christ we receive through the Holy Spirit, including faith itself.
Mission Highlight: This week, we got to hear an update from our dear brothers and sisters and partners in ministry in Vilassar de Mar, Spain, the Phillips family. For those of you who don't know them, they've included a brief introduction of themselves. Let's continue to pray for our brothers and sisters there, as they continue to support local ministers and church plants, and that God would raise up more workers to spread the good news of Jesus in the larger Barcelona area. Please check out the video if you missed it this Sunday!
