Sermon Series - From Here to There

This sermon series looks at the question: how do we go from “here” to there”? How do I start with my life right now (the person I am “here”) and move to God’s version of myself (the person I can be “there”)? Also, as the church, how do we get from where we are right now (“here”) to realizing our full redemptive potential (“there”)?

New Sermon Series

There are certain things we do that we know are in opposition to what God wants for us, but we rationalize them as acceptable, even respectable. We’ve made them “respectable sins.” And, part of the deal with “respectable sins” is that they often seem hidden – yet they are fully present. In fact, “respectable sins” actually thrive on not having notoriety, but they have a widespread practice. For these reasons, this series will focus on what some common “respectable sins” are in our day and on how we can find freedom from them.

Upcoming Sermon Series

This sermon series considers what God does through various aspects of the family, such as marriage, parenting, and healing brokenness. And, this series is designed to build up not only biological families but also our church family, since God’s plan is that the church should be a type of family where people can belong and be at home and embraced.

Mission: Possible Sermon Series

Please join us for this six-week series entitled, “Mission: Possible – How University Baptist Church Can Change the World.” Before Jesus ascended into heaven, he told his disciples to go into all the world and make disciples. How could this tiny ragtag group of believers have an impact on “all the world?” The book of Acts tells us how it was done. And, the early church serves as a model for the church today. If we will make their priorities our priorities, if we will proclaim the message as they proclaimed it, if we will follow their example of ministry, we too can make a difference in the world in which we live.

Generosity Sermon Series

This spring we will address the theme of generosity in the Bible. We will reflect upon God’s generosity to us, which calls us to be generous in kind. When we are given great blessings, it is a wonderful gift to be able to share them. On a communal level, we will discuss what is required of our church as we work to build God’s kingdom here on earth.

Advent Sermon Series

During this Advent season we will try to practice the spiritual discipline of  waiting . Instead of being hurried and focused on ourselves and all of the important things that we have to do, we will endeavor to be reminded: “I’m not in control of the world, so I’m going to wait with Jesus, and I’m going to wait in peace.” In other words, this Advent season we will seek to wait on the Lord.

New Sermon Series

This series focuses on some of the hard sayings of Jesus – that is, on some of the things he said that can be real “head-scratchers.” We can sometimes tend to push back against these hard sayings, but if we understand them and yield to them, we can more faithfully live the way in which Jesus has called us to live.
