Parables of Jesus

Dear Church Family, This week we begin a preaching series on the Parables of Jesus. The reason we want to study these stories is because Jesus used them to reveal certain truths about the Kingdom of God. Truths that are often counterintuitive to the way we think and live as a society and as individuals. […]

The Worst Crime

RSDAC communion

Dear Church Family, Communion is a reminder of what took place two thousand years ago. Communion is a representation of the life and death of Jesus. His body represents the bread and His blood represents the grape juice. However, as Christians often times communion can become a routine done at church. It becomes just another […]

Hope Bringer

Dear Church Family, For the last 30 years, I have visited many cemeteries to officiate gravesite funerals for countless people.  When I walk down the road toward the gravesite, I am drawn to read the dates engraved on the tombstones around me and quickly try to calculate how many years that person lived. What I […]

Reproducing the King

reproducing the king

Dear Church Family, The most basic principle of Christianity is sometimes the most overlooked. This week we will explore what God is trying to do in teaching us the importance of forgiveness. Through this amazing story, we will understand how important it is to reproduce the king. Blessings, Pastor Michael Hayes

I Prefer

Dear Church Family, Join us as we go to the book of James chapter two, where it will talk to us about favoritism. What is favoritism, it’s when we prefer someone over another. The sad part is that we find favoritism even in the church of James. Come and listen to how we can learn practical steps to avoid favoritism and promote inclusion […]

The Outcast, The Expert, and The Storyteller

The Outcast, the expert and the storyteller

Hi Church Family, There’s no way around it. Every single place we look, there’s brokenness. Broken faith, broken promises, broken people. Maybe we’re tired of seeing them, or maybe we are them. This Sabbath, we hope to intentionally highlight the fact that our brokenness doesn’t have any bearing on God’s power in our life. “Jesus […]

Don’t Quit

Dear Church Family, God, through the power of His Spirit has called all of us to ministry. Not only are we invited to be sons and daughters of God, but we all have a responsibility to help each other walk this walk of faith. This is a selfless work that every Christian is called to. And like so many other responsibilities, it can […]

From a Distance

from a distance

Dear Church Family, Jesus, the famous storyteller tells us of a parable of two worshipers who come to the temple to pray. From a distance each character prays but what is the difference in each of their prayers? Come and listen to find out how that’s timeless principles can help us in our prayer life. SPEAKER: Pastor Carlos Pasillas

Wake Up To the Spirit

Dear Church Family, Is a natural disaster an act of God? When famines come or pandemics arrive is it by chance or is there some design behind it? And is that design perhaps of Divine origin? Well, the book of Joel answers this question in clear distinct tones and he doesn’t hold anything back. But what does all this have to do with the Holy […]

The Priority of the Spirit

Dear Church Family, Ever since the beginning of the year we have been focusing on the presence, power, and the purpose of the Holy Spirit. God has been good to us! This weekend I would like to point out something very special about the third person of the Godhead concerning His work in our lives. While the Spirit has many jobs to do on our behalf, I believe there is one primary goal that He […]
