The Promised Land

5 Sermons | October 16-November 13, 2022

In the Bible, the Promised Land is the place where God used Abraham and his descendants to bless all the people of the earth. But even though we may not have a plot of land that was important to our ancestors, there is a place where God wants to use you too.


But finding that place isn't always easy. In this series, we'll explore how the people of Israel were able to overcome obstacles to return to the Promised Land, and we'll talk about the lessons they learned while they were there.

Sermon 1

Getting Unstuck

October 16, 2022

It's been said that fear is the glue that keeps us stuck. In the book of Joshua, we can see just how true that statement was for the people of Israel. They had been on the verge of entering the Promised Land for 40 years...but their fear kept them from being able to move forward.


In this sermon, we'll see how the people of Israel were finally able to move forward and we'll learn how we can overcome our fears and get unstuck.

Sermon 2

Facing Fear

October 23, 2022

Whenever we look to the future, it's easy to get scared. And we get scared because we just don't know what will happen.


But when we're struggling with fear about what tomorrow may bring, it can help to remember the past. When we look back on the past we can see how God helped us make it through challenges before and we can trust that God will continue to help us when we face new challenges.

Sermon 3

Breaking Chains

October 30, 2022

It's easy to say that the past is in the past, but there are plenty of things that we have all experienced in our past that can continue to hurt us in the present.


In this sermon, we'll talk about how we really can put the past behind us and how God gives us all a clean slate when we commit to follow him.

Sermon 4

Making the Impossible Possible

November 6, 2022

From promising Abraham and Sarah that they'd have a baby when they were both over 90 years old, to telling the people of Israel to march around in circles to defeat the city of Jericho, to having David face a giant with just a sling and a stone; there are times in life when God asks us to do impossible things. But God has a habit of making the impossible possible.


God does this to show how powerful God is and to show us that we should always trust in him.

Sermon 5

A Choice

November 13, 2022

John Lennon famously sung that "Life is what happens when you're busy making plans." The same thing is true when it comes to faith...most of our journey of faith happens on ordinary days.


In this sermon, we'll be reminded how important it is to choose to follow God on ordinary days, and how those oridinary days prepare you to trust in God when the extraordinary happens.
