The goal of the Christian life is to become more like Christ. While most agree on the goal, there is some confusion about how to achieve it. How do we grow in Christ-likeness?  What is God's role in the process? What is ours? What keeps us from making progress toward the goal? These are some of the questions we'll tackle on Sunday.
Every time the gospel story is told, it calls for a response from those who hear it. This Sunday we'll explore how our response to the gospel is both a one-time event and a lifelong process.
Last week we explored the gospel story from above (God’s perspective). This week we’ll explore it from our perspective (below). In doing so, we’ll hopefully gain a better understanding of what it means to say, “Jesus saves.”
This week Wade is launching a new series about what it means to be part of God’s story by challenging us to begin our exploration of the gospel, not with our problems, needs, or desires, but with God’s activity in the world.
Grappling with Grace

Grappling with Grace

2022-07-1723:57

God’s grace is unearned, unmerited favor that he lavishes upon us, and is thus unfathomable. We often try to cheapen it by taking it for granted or by trying to “earn it” back. Since we don’t or can’t make sense of it, we struggle to model that kind of grace to others. But praise be to God for his good grace that is available and for each and everyone of us.
What if we just simply lived out the words of Acts 4:32?  I am not saying you should or that it is easy.  I am just saying, what if we did it.  I mean, what if we simply worried less about our own needs and focused more on making sure that those around us and those in our community had everything they needed.  And if they didn‘t have what they needed, that we would give it to them… we would just  fill in the gap.  When you say it like that, it seem like a fairly simple challenge, but it’s not.  It’s really hard sometimes.

We often fail to understand the incredible love God has for us. Sometimes, though, we can understand God’s love for ourselves, but we aren’t willing to recognize that His love is also given equally to those who are very different from us.

The Cross is the Way

2022-05-0223:08

New Lead Minister Wade Hodges teaches from 1 Corinthians 1-2. He examines Paul's message and methods of presentation. It is very much a polarizing method of teaching in comparison too many methods used within the modern church. Wade uses this as a spring board to show that the cross alone is enough to draw people to Christ.
This week we welcome both Wade and Heather Hodges to the Greenville Oaks Church family. Wade is the new Lead Minister at Greenville Oaks and we take some time to learn more about Wade, Heather and their family!

Our DOUBT creates FEAR, that can only grow into FAITH through the gift of Easter and that gift is only fully realized in the HOPE that comes through Jesus Christ.
This week we take a look at the passover meal and the final days of Christ leading up to his crucifixion. Executive Minister Matt Mazza challenges us to put ourselves in the shoes of those losing Jesus in real-time, as if the story were to end there. The things and emotions they experienced while Christ was in the tomb. 
We take time to hear the amazing stories that came to light because of the #ForCollinCounty initiative. Our challenge is to continue forward with this mindset for  years to come.
