Encounter Jesus

  Summary

Series Summary:  Jesus said that when he would be lifted up from the earth that he would draw all people to himself. It is the aim of this series to encounter the real Jesus, to be drawn to Him, to fall in love with Him and to live for Him.

Series Scripture:  “And I, when I am lifted upfrom the earth, will draw all people to myself.” John 12:32

  Life That Never Dies - Easter Sunday

Core Truth: If Jesus is the resurrection and the life then it changes everything. It means that the resurrection did not just happen to Him, it happened because of Him! The truth of what this means in the present, as well as the future, is explosive!

Scripture: John 11:25-44

Speaker: Sam Devine ~ Lead Pastor

Date: April 1, 2018

  When All Seems Lost - Good Friday

Core Truth: There are times in our lives when the worst happens and all seems lost. At that point, we can be disappointed with Jesus. We may not realize it at the time but He always has a greater glory in view.

Scripture: John 11:1-24

Speaker: Sam Devine ~ Lead Pastor

Date: March 30, 2018

  Follow - Palm Sunday

 

Core Truth: Just like the crowd that cheered Jesus as He rode into Jerusalem it is possible to cheer Jesus today but not actually know Him. Jesus knows those who truly follow Him and He protects them.

Scripture: John 10:22-40

Speaker: Nathan Wachal ~ Associate Pastor, Community Initiatives & Worship Arts

Date: March 25, 2018

  The Best Life Possible

Core Truth: God’s ways are not our ways. He works in ways, in people and in circumstances that we would never consider possible. He can bring good from tragedy. We can only begin to see the bigger picture when our eyes are opened to Him.

Scripture: John 10:1-10

Speaker: Kyle Smith ~ Youth Ministry Director

Date: March 18, 2018

  Intentional God - Guest Speaker

Core Truth: God does things on purpose for a purpose. God's Intentionality toward the Church is seen in His spiritual blessings and out adoption as His children.  We have been given spiritual authority through the Holy Spirit to bring glory to God as His Church.

Scripture: Ephesians 1

Speaker: Kervin Raugust - EMCC President

Date: March 11, 2018

  Bigger Picture

Core Truth: God’s ways are not our ways. He works in ways, in people and in circumstances that we would never consider possible. He can bring good from tragedy. We can only begin to see the bigger picture when our eyes are opened to Him.

Scripture: John 9:1-41

Speaker: Sam Devine ~ Lead Pastor

Date: March 4, 2018

  True Glory

Core Truth: Jesus shows us where the source of true glory lies. When we pursue God’s glory rather than our own we can stand up to the ridicule and rejection of others, as Jesus did.

Scripture: John 8:48-59 

Speaker: Sam Devine ~ Lead Pastor

Date: February 25, 2018

  Not A Fan

Core Truth: One of the core pieces of evidence that a person is a genuine follower of Christ is their commitment to know and be freed by the truth. You can know if you are a follower or a fan.

Scripture: John 8:31-47

Speaker: Sam Devine ~ Lead Pastor

Date: February 18, 2018

  The Credibility of Jesus

Core Truth: All of life hangs on the question of whether we believe that Jesus is the Son of God or not. If He is and we don’t believe we will die in our sins. If He is and we believe we will possess the light of life. Jesus explains how we can know who He is.

Scripture: John 8:12-30 

Speaker: Nathan Wachal ~ Associate Pastor - Community Initiatives and Worship Arts

Date: February 11, 2018

  Caught in the Grip of Grace

Core Truth: A woman who is caught in the act of adultery is also caught in the grip of grace when Jesus stands between her and her accusers. In one fell swoop, Jesus addresses the hypocrisy of the lynch mob and the shame of a woman who had sinned.

Scripture: John 8:1-11

Speaker: Sam Devine - Lead Pastor

Date: January 28,2018

  Trusting The Right Person

Core Truth: If we are going to trust our life to someone then we need to know that person is authentic. Jesus gives evidence of His identity and the reasons why He can be trusted.

Scripture: John 7:25-44

Speaker: Sam Devine - Lead Pastor

Date: January 21, 2018

  Making The Right Judgement

Core Truth: Every day we have to make judgment calls but we need to know how to make correct ones. Jesus shows us how to make correct judgement calls based on the glory of God and not our own.

Scripture: John 7:14-24

Speaker: Sam Devine - Lead Pastor

Date: January 14, 2018

  Choosing The Right Time

Core Truth: There is a time for everything, however, we do not always choose the right time. We grow impatient and we can think that things must happen in our time. We can learn from Jesus the master of time about how to act according to His will.

Scripture: John 7:1-13

Speaker: Sam Devine - Lead Pastor

Date: January 7, 2018

  The Miracle of Faith

Core Truth: Many people are offended by the assertion that only Jesus is the source of real life and many will not believe. In this encounter with Jesus the disciples are challenged to count the cost of following Him. It requires the miracle of faith to make that commitment and we need to weigh up the alternatives.

Scripture: John 6:60-70

Speaker: Nathan Wachal -  Associate Pastor, Community Initiatives & Worship Arts

Date: April 2, 2017

  The Miracle of Life

Core Truth: Physical food is needed to sustain physical life. It is vital. But it is not all that we need. We need the life that comes from God that will feed our souls and cause our lives to flourish. In this encounter with Jesus, we learn how to feed on Him.

Scripture: John 6:25-59 

Speaker: Sam Devine - Lead Pastor

Date: March 26, 2017

  The Miracle of Presence

Core Truth: Life can change in a moment.  We may have a great vision of where we want to go and what we want to accomplish but suddenly
become frozen by fear.  This encounter with Jesus teaches the disciples and us to rely on the miracle of God’s presence to get us to our destination.

Scripture: John 6:16-24

Speaker: Sam Devine - Lead Pastor

Date: March 19, 2017

  The Miracle of Multiplication

Core Truth: We tend to think more produces more. More work, more effort, more resources and we will get more in return. This encounter with Jesus would leave a hungry crowd completely satisfied with a child’s packed lunch. In God’s economy less can become more when offered in faith. 

Scripture: John 6:1-14

Speaker: Sam Devine - Lead Pastor

Date: March 12, 2017

  Jesus on Trial

Core Truth: We have no need to crumble when faced with persecution for doing what is right. The defense and the prosecution that Jesus presents shows us where our identity and authority lies so that we can continue to live for God’s honour.

Scripture: John 5:19-47

Speaker: Sam Devine - Lead Pastor

Date: March 5, 2017

  Jesus’ Unlikely Crime

Core Truth: When you do something good for someone you don’t expect to get ridiculed for it. Jesus responds to those who accuse him of committing a crime because he healed on the Sabbath. How can we avoid the subtle dangers of legalism – keeping the letter of the law and remain faithful to God?

Scripture: John 5:1-18

Speaker: Sam Devine - Lead Pastor

Date: February 26, 2017

  Jesus the Healer

Core Truth: Jesus reveals himself as the one who not only heals souls but also sick bodies. Should we pray for God to heal the sick today? What should we expect and what impact should it have in our faith in God?

Scripture: John 4:43-54

Speaker: Sam Devine - Lead Pastor

Date: February 19, 2017

  Sharing Christ With Others

Core Truth: Encountering Jesus means you will want to share your experience of Him with others. What can we learn from a woman who suddenly realized who Jesus was and what He would do for her?

Scripture: John 4:27-42

Speaker: Nathan Wachal - Associate Pastor, Community Initiatives & Worship Arts

Date: February 12, 2017

  True Worship

Core Truth: Until a person encounters Jesus their worship is misplaced no matter how sincere it is. When Jesus encounters a woman he leads her to understand how finding satisfaction in God is at the heart of every true worshipper.

Scripture: John 4:16-26

Speaker: Nathan Wachal - Associate Pastor, Community Initiatives & Worship Arts

Date: February 5, 2017

  I Can't Get No Satidfaction

Core Truth: We try our hardest to get satisfaction out of life but find that no matter what we try it never fully seems to live up to its billing. One woman’s search for satisfaction began when she encountered Jesus who offered her something completely different, something that would last.

Scripture: John 4:1-15

Speaker: Sam Devine

Date: January 29, 2017

  Radical Commitment

Core Truth: The radical life that is made possible by the radical love of God enables radical commitment to live for Him. We cannot respond half-heartedly. It’s all or nothing.

Scripture: John 3:22-36

Speaker: Sam Devine - Lead Pastor

Date: January 22, 2017

  Radical Love

Core Truth: The love of God is more radical than we could ever imagine. He not only loves us whoever we are, he loves us enough to take the rap for our rebellion so that we could have eternal life.

Scripture: John 3:16-21

Speaker: Sam Devine - Lead Pastor

Date; January 15, 2017

  Radical Life

Core Truth: The Life that Jesus came to give is not an upgrade to the one we already have. It is the equivalent to a complete re-set of our lives. Jesus explains what how this radical new life begins.

Scripture: John 3:1-15

Speaker: Sam Devine - Lead Pastor

Date: January 8, 2017

  Jesus Stops the Sale of Religion

Core Truth: Being taken advantage of is not a nice experience especially if that happens in the name of God. Jesus fights for the freedom of those who desire to worship Him and drives out those who trying to sell religion.

Scripture: John 2:13-25

Speaker: Sam Devine - Lead Pastor

Date: November 20, 2016

  Jesus the Joy Giver

Core Truth: I’m not sure that we would have chosen as a first miracle for Jesus to change water into a wine at a village wedding. Why he did reveals much about the mission and purpose of Jesus and the life he gives.

Scripture: John 2:1-12

Speaker: Sam Devine - Lead Pastor

Date: November 13, 2016

  Encounter Jesus

Core Truth: Jesus never stayed aloof from people. He connected with people and he inspired them. When we encounter the real Jesus we will want to connect others to Him also. We can learn from Jesus and the first disciples as they walk across the room to others?

Scripture: John 1:35-51

Speaker: Sam Devine - Lead Pastor

Date: November 6, 2016

  Jesus Opens The Way To God

Core Truth: Jesus is uniquely different from humanity. He has the power to change lives.

We have the privilege of making straight paths for people to get to Jesus and Jesus is the one who opens up the way to God.

Scripture: John 1:19-34

Speaker: Sam Devine - Lead Pastor

Date: October 30, 2016

  Jesus Makes God Known

Core Truth: Jesus makes God known by moving into the neighbourhood and experiencing life as we do. In doing so no one could ever say they do not know what God is like. He is full of grace and truth.

Scripture: John 1:15-18

Speaker: Nathan Wachal - Associate Pastor, Community Initiatives & Worship Arts

Date: October 23, 2016

  Who is Jesus?

Core Truth: Historically Jesus is acknowledged as a teacher, a prophet and a moral leader. But who is Jesus really? The answer to this question will impact how we live our lives either as His child or as a rejecter. 

Scripture: John 1:1-13

Speaker: Sam Devine - Lead Pastor

Date: October 16, 2016
