God’s Blessed-up Messed-up People

Jan 27 – Mar 3


We all have family stories — stories about grandpas and grandmas or about uncles and aunts. Some of them are funny. Some of them are sad. But they help us know more about ourselves—where we came and who we are. In this series we’ll take a look at some of our Faith Family stories. We’ll learn about us but, more importantly, we’ll learn about God.

GGod’s Blessed-up Messed-up Family | Living by Grace

March 3

We have seen Jacob struggle throughout his life. Last week we talked about a breakthrough when Jacob surrendered to God. This week we’ll jump to the end of Jacob’s life and look at how much he has been shaped by God’s grace over the years.

God’s Blessed-up Messed-up Family | Jacob Finally Wins (When He Loses)

Feb 24

Jacob has been fighting his whole life. He fought Esau, then Isaac, then Laban. Now he must fight the battle behind all the other battles — the battle with God. As we watch this battle, we’ll ask ourselves whether we’re fighting against God as well.

God’s Blessed-Up Messed-Up Family | What Goes Around Comes Around

Feb 17

You’ve heard it many times, but have you ever wondered if this saying is true? ‘What goes around comes around.’ Is the Bible really saying that ‘What a person plants, he will harvest?’ This Sunday we look at the great trickster, Jacob, meeting his match in the person of Laban, the brother of his mother and the father of Jacob’s love at first sight: Rachel.

God’s Blessed-Up Messed-Up Family | An Undeserved Gift

Feb 10

We all have a sense of fairness. If we have worked hard for something, we deserve it. If we put in the hours, we deserve to get paid. This Sunday we’ll look at a story where Jacob didn’t get what he deserved—he got something so much better.

God’s Blessed-up Messed-up People | Too Smart for Their Own Good

Feb 3

Trusting in God’s way of doing things is not easy. When we’re not sure God is going to do something, sometimes we feel like we need to take matters into our own hands. This Sunday we’ll look at how several of our faith-ancestors made a mess of things by taking things into their own hands.

God’s Blessed-up Messed-up People | When God has No Good Choices

Jan 27

We all have family stories — stories about grandpas and grandmas or about uncles and aunts. Some of them are funny. Some of them are sad. But they help us know more about ourselves—where we came and who we are. This morning we’ll begin to take a look at some of our Faith Family stories. We’ll learn about us but, more im- portantly, we’ll learn about God.
