**Due to the sensitive nature of this message, we will not post the sermon this week.

This week’s message is a departure from our series through 1 Corinthians. A team from MCA just returned from the country of Jordan where we visited refugees and a church committed to serving them. We were challenged in so many ways and this message is a message about some of the ways God was speaking to us. Our hope is that we hear from God’s spirit this Sunday that living by faith is worth it. Living in obedience to Jesus is worth it. And, God is calling us to a kind of faith that moves us into areas where we are forced to rely on Him.
This morning Dennis Hostetler brings the message from 1 Corinthians 13 as part of the Beautiful Mess sermon series. This passage is often used as a wedding scripture, however, it is about love in the church. This scripture is sandwiched between two chapters on spiritual gifts and how they function in the church. Paul’s main points are: Spiritual gifts without love are empty and lack substance, the spiritual gifts are going to pass away when the perfection (Jesus Christ) returns, love will complete us, unconditional love (Greek: Agape) is impossible for us to always do, we need God’s grace to love well in the church, and out of the main spiritual disciplines (faith, hope and love) love in action is the greatest. The church is a place in which we learn, practice and mature in the love described in this passage.
In this mornings message Cory Detweiler speaks about Spiritual Gifts from 1 Corinthians 12:1-11. He focuses on v7 specifically: "To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good". Listen and consider how God has gifted you, understand your gift and use it to further His Kingdom.
Christmas and the story of Jesus is a story about hope. It is a story we feel most deeply in our darkest hours. Listen in this morning and Pastor Jeremy speaks from the book of Luke and the great promise of Hope Jesus brings into our lives.
This morning we continue in our study of 1 Corinthians by hearing God's Word from 1 Corinthians 11:2-16. Listen as Pastor Jeremy speaks about Paul's letter regarding gender and the church.
“Let anyone who thinks that he stands, take head lest he fall.” (1 Cor. 10:12) I will admit to having a built-in allergic reaction to warning labels. While some take comfort in knowing warning labels are seeking to spare them difficulty, I tend to think they commit two sins. They either point out the obvious or are trying to control me. But the reality is that sometimes we need warning labels because we aren’t as smart or advanced as we think we are. In this passage, Paul makes this point to the new Christians in Corinth by pointing to Israel’s history and warning them not to get reckless in their faith with their newfound freedom. The truth is that recklessness and pride has frequently destroyed the people God. In this passage, we will look at several areas we can easily become reckless with our lives, how we deal with temptation, and then invite us back to a place of humility and carefulness in our relationship with Jesus.
A message by Pastor Jeremy Miller from 1 Corinthians Chapter 9. This message is part of the "A Beautiful Mess" sermon series where we are working our way through the book of 1 Corinthians.  
1 Corinthians 8 deals with yet another dispute in the Corinthian church. Some in the church came out of a background where idol worship was a significant part of their lives. Some of these new Christians felt completely uncomfortable eating food that had been offered to idols in worship by other people, while others thought it was completely ok to eat the food. So who was right? It turns out that those on the “right” side of the argument were those who understood that it didn’t matter whether the food had been used in worship or not. However, these folks were also warned that their correct belief could harm their more sensitive brothers and sisters if they were arrogant or insensitive with those whose conscience was sensitive. This text is a caution to our church. Sometimes we can be right in an argument and end up being completely wrong.
One of the things I am so challenged by when I read church history is the lengths to which people will go in service to Christ. It is truly inspiring. Some give up family. Some give up dreams of wealth. Others give up their hope of marriage to focus on God’s work in the world. The last half of 1 Corinthians 7 speaks about this final group. They give themselves to the Kingdom, remaining celibate and committed to following Jesus wherever he leads. This devotion is challenging to many of us who might find it difficult to recount one act of costliness we have endured in the name of Christ. This week’s message will be a teaching that exhorts the committed single life and calls all of us to a greater willingness to sacrificial living.
This mornings message comes from 1 Corinthians chapter 7 and will cover a lot of territory with regard to marriage. In this passage Paul gives instructions about marriage from teaching on sexual dynamics within marriage to how couples deal with one spouse coming to Christ while the other doesn’t.
