This Is Us

September/October 2019

God has created every individual to be unique.  Our fingerprints and DNA are unlike anyone else's.  The same is true
of churches as each is unique in it's makeup, it's ministries, and how it relates the Gospel message to it's church family and to the community.  In this series we are taking a look at some of our traits and characteristics that identify who we are.  This is us!

Man Up!

August/Septmeber 2019

There is a push from a segment of society for men to stop acting like men.  While there are many examples of men behaving badly, there is a real need for men to step up and start acting like the men that God has called them to be.  This series encourages men to be the spiritual leaders in the Church, in their relationships, and in the home--to be imitators of Christ and to follow His example.
 

Fresh Wind

July/August 2019

 Jesus compared the Holy Spirit to the wind which blows wherever it wishes.  You cannot grab hold of the wind, but you can feel its effect.  You cannot put it in a jar and save it for later.  No, you must take advantage of the wind when it blows.  In a similar way, God wants to breath a fresh wind into your life and into the life of the Church. When the wind blows, you have a choice.  You can draw the lines a little tighter and drop the anchor or you can release the lines and hoist the sails allowing the wind of the Holy Spirit to take you wherever it desires.  When we allow the wind of the Holy Spirit to blow in our lives, He will take us on a journey unlike any we have ever imagined! 

You CAN Handle the Truth

June/July 2019

Truth does not care what you think. It doesn't take polls, is not concerned about the current social climate and is not always politically correct. This series seeks to reveal some unchangeable truths, but I think you CAN handle it. 

Wild Kingdom

April/May 2019

Before there was Jack Hannah or Steve Irwin (The Crocodile Hunter) there was Marlin Perkins and Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom.  Audiences were amazed by the stories of animals that appeared each week on their televisions, but we should be even more amazed by the stories that involved God's wild kingdom in His Word.  These stories, though centuries old, impact us where we live today.

Jesus in Red Letters

March 2019

Who is Jesus?  More importantly, who is Jesus to you? There have been thousands of books written trying to describe exactly who Jesus is.  However, what better way is there to understand Jesus than for Jesus to tell us in His own words who He is?  The better you understand who Jesus is, the greater the impact He will have on you life.

Love Songs

February/March 2019

 The Song of Solomon is one of the most unusual books in the Bible. However, this book reveals to us a great deal about what a healthy, romantic relationship looks like between a husband and wife. Romance and intimacy are gifts from God and are to help keep husband and wife close and to keep each only to their other. In addition, hidden in the pages of this book God reveals His love for His people, as well as Christ's love the His bride the Church.

20/20 Vision

January 2019

What is the first thing that comes to mind when people consider MGCC?  Is it a loving church? A caring church? A growing church? A God-lead church?  During this series we will share with you our 20/20 Vision and 
challenge you to grow in your Christian faith as we continually strive to be the church that God has called us to be.

Possible

September/October 2018

Based on the book, "Grave Robber" by Mark Batterson, this series of messages takes a focused look at the seven miracles of Jesus as recorded in the Gospel of John. When examined, these miracles show us that Jesus not only has power and authority over the universe, but a power and authority that goes all the way down to the molecular level. They are a reminder that "with God, all things are possible."

REBOOT

September 2018

Every computer you own, whether it be a Windows PC, a Mac, an Android phone, or an iPhone, has to be rebooted every now and then. The same is true spiritually. Every now and then we all need a restart or to be refreshed.  This series takes a look at some of the exciting events from the book of Acts where God's people were rebooted.  God was able to take a frightened group of men and women and empower them to do mighty works for the kingdom.  God wants to do the same thing in your life.

His Stories

August 2018

While the stories of Jesus may seem like ancient words to some, they are full of great lessons that hit us where we live today. Through this series we will be looking at some of the parables of Jesus that serve as a blueprint for living
in a modern world.

Hidden Treasures

June/July 2018

There are a lot of Hidden Treasures that you will find only if you are willing to get off the beaten path.  You may find that little hole-in-the-wall restaurant that has the best food or a view that can only be seen if you go where others are unwilling to go.  In a similar way we tend to focus on the familiar stories of the Bible.  However, there are many Hidden Treasures--gems with great lessons to be learned--that will only be discovered if you are willing to dig a little deeper and go off the beaten path .

G O S P E L

May/June 2018

Every day we are confronted by all kinds of bad news: political division, shootings, crime, war, addiction, and a variety of other things that are a detriment to society. So, isn't it about time that someone brings some Good News?

The Most Fascinating Guy on the Planet

April 2018

While you may run into some people with a sense of intrigue and who may seem larger than life, none of them hold a candle to Jesus. Jesus really is the most fascinating man to ever live. Through this series it is our hope that you will see Jesus through a fresh set of eyes.

My Mission Trip Experience

April 8, 2018

Clayton Hershner shares his life changing experience during a recent mission trip to Mexico.

The Power of the Church

February/March 2018

God's church is powerful! However, God has decided to empower us, imperfect as we are, to encourage and influence the world, for Jesus Christ. God has chosen to use our mouths, our hands, and our feed to carry the Gospel message to a world in need of hope, purpose, and forgiveness. The power of the Church is God working through us.

Overboard

January/February 2018

If you ever felt that God was leading you to do something that you simply did not want to do, then you can relate with Jonah. While many of the Old Testament prophets gave a variety of excuses as to why they could not do what God had asked. most of the time they gave in and followed God's leading...except for Jonah. Jonah decided to run. So, are you running from God?

Resolution

January 2018

At this time of year it is quite common to make some resolutions such as; getting into better shape, stopping a bad habit, or losing a few pounds. However, it is even more important to get into shape spiritually. In this series you will be challenged to take steps that will draw you into a deeper relationship with God.

The Perfect Gift

December 24, 2017

God has gone to great lengths in order to give us the gift of His Son Jesus Christ.  While some may see that gift as
inappropriate or unwanted, Jesus Christ offers us forgiveness and a new hope for eternity which makes Him the perfect gift.

Generous God

November 2017

We have an outrageously generous God!  Without a doubt, all of us should be able to say that God
has blessed us in more ways than we could ever deserve.  God allowed His Son to die on a cross
to set us free from the bondage of sin and God does not want us to be enslaved again by anything
including our finances.  When we get a grip on money and the things money can buy, then we will learn
to enjoy the abundant life that Jesus promised.

Homecoming Sermon

October 22,2017

The Church of today often seems to be in a defensive posture.  However, Jesus stated that the Church was 
to be on the offensive and that "the gates of hell would not prevail against it."  As Christians, we are
on the winning side.  Let's go be the Church!

Gridiron

September 19th - November 5th 2017

While watching any football game it's easy to be an armchair quarterback and criticize the coaches and players 
on the field.  However, life on the field is different.  Dedication off the field, combined with effort and energy on the field, can determine a win or a loss.  The same is true in the Christian life.  Dedication to the Christian walk, combined with the work of the Holy Spirit, can determine our impact in our community.  When the Holy Spirit is allowed to thrive in the life of the Christian, then there will be evidence of His presence as spiritual fruit is produced.  This series
takes a look at these characteristics or fruit that should be evident in the life of every Christian.  

Give Up...Go Be

September 10, 2017

For the past few years the mission of MGCC has been "Give up...Go be."  Today, Jerry revisits what has become the motto of our church family and challenges us to give up ourselves completely to Jesus and to go be the Church.

Paradox

July - September 2017

​Jesus began His most famous sermon, the Sermon on the Mount, with eight short statements that have come to be known as the Beatitudes.  In this sermon, Jesus challenges the common thought of the day with a brand new way of thinking...God's way of thinking.  When you learn to look at the world from God's perspective then you will discover that you are blessed!
