    Did you know? Roughly 33% of Jesus’ recorded words in the Bible were His Parables? What are the Parables? If you grew up around the church, you might know them as Jesus’ teachings, but they’re much more than that. Much, much more. The Parables, simply put, paint a picture of what the Kingdom of God looks like here on earth. They are our ability to be able to see, hear, and understand what heaven on earth could look like so that we aren’t stuck waiting for it. What heavenly teaching of Jesus will you experience again or with a fresh set of eyes and ears? Speaker: Pastor Dave D’Angelo

  • Easter 2021 | Come Alive

    Easter 2021 | Come Alive

    We celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ and take a look at what that actually means for everyone, believers and non-believers alike. Speaker: Pastor Dave D'Angelo

  • Who are you, really?

    Who are you, really?

    28/03/2021 Duração: 34min

    Who are you? Seriously, who are you inside? Who is the person God made you to be. Not the person you show the world, but who are you, really? What’s the one thing you need to put into words, you haven’t put into words, that you need to say to yourself? Questions can be revealing and we don’t always like the answer. There is something about saying a thing out loud that forces us to face it. Paul tells us to put on our armor, but he’s not referring to a metal suit. He’s talking about walking through your life as God made you and when you do that, Satan is defeated. But that is easier said than done. Speaker Amanda Beggs

  • Slavery and the Bible: What is going on?

    Slavery and the Bible: What is going on?

    21/03/2021 Duração: 32min

    Slaves and masters: Paul addresses this relationship in Ephesians. Yup, this section of the Bible is uncomfortable. Sections of the Bible likes his one can make you not want to believe the Bible at all and just put it back on the shelf. Why didn’t Paul take this opportunity to call out the buying and selling of human beings? This doesn’t feel like it aligns with Jesus’ teaching at all. How can he possibly even talk about this from the perspective that it is acceptable? Let’s unpack this tension together. Speaker: Pastor John Reilly

  • Disappointment  Distrust: Marriage in 2020

    Disappointment & Distrust: Marriage in 2020

    14/03/2021 Duração: 33min

    It’s been one year since our lives were interrupted by Covid19. We’ve been living in trauma, in multiple ways, since it began. And one of the areas it has affected us the most is in marriage. Marriage is supposed to be oneness, but if you’re honest, that probably isn’t how you feel right now. Are you feeling distance in your marriage today? How do you overcome that? There are answers and a way to oneness! Speaker: Pastor Dave D’Angelo

  • Crude, foolish and filthy

    Crude, foolish and filthy

    07/03/2021 Duração: 31min

    Do you think the sins of this generation is worse than it has ever been? Porn, sexual promiscuity, entertainment, social media, culture, it’s all signaling that sin is overtaking us in a way it never has before! Ephesians 5 actually tells us something different. The sin that was facing the church and the world back then, is the same sin that is facing you today. What do you do to fix it? What is the shame you’re carrying? Speaker: Pastor Dave D’Angelo

  • Ephesians | Week #8 - The Next Step

    Ephesians | Week #8 - The Next Step

    28/02/2021 Duração: 29min

    You’ve just accepted Jesus as your savior. Now what? The steps that follow your simple acceptance are explained by Paul in this week’s study of Ephesians. Pastor Scott Stevens ties these messages to his own story that he may help you relate to your own experience. Speaker: Pastor Scott Stevens

  • Ephesians | Week #7 - Being Right or in Relationship

    Ephesians | Week #7 - Being Right or in Relationship

    21/02/2021 Duração: 37min

    Do you think there are things starting to happen at the church? Are we becoming something we aren’t supposed to become? Paul gives us a vision of what the church should be in this chapter of Ephesians. He is encouraging us not to settle, knowing that we have been graced for more. Paul teaches us the calling for the church is gentleness, humility, patience and selflessness. This is the complete opposite of what today’s society would teach. Today, if we don’t agree, you get get cancelled. Being selfless doesn’t mean you get walked all over, it just means you value other people in the world before you value yourself. This may feel a little predictable or elementary. But take a moment to dig in and really look at your life over the last year. We’re you marked by humility, gentleness and patience? Or something else? In today’s world we’re urged and tempted to always be right. But the scriptures show us the people who were only interested in being “right” were the Pharisees. And they’re the ones who missed the

  • Ephesians | Week #6 - God’s Big Love

    Ephesians | Week #6 - God’s Big Love

    14/02/2021 Duração: 32min

    The Bible is a Valentine’s Day card to us. It is literally a love letter to His people. We see so many passages that illustrate God’s love and instructions on how we should love each other. That is where we are in our study of Ephesians. This text shows the depth of His love for you. One of the ways He demonstrates His love is through the Holy Spirit. Do you have strife with someone? Do you desire better choices from someone you care deeply about? We challenge you to pray. Even if you don’t know how or what to pray, that is the challenge. What would happen in your life, if your first posture was prayer because of a Godly love rather than a condemnation because of human frustrations? There is power through the indwelling of the Holy Sprit within you. This is deep work. Not selfish “self help” work. The power of the Holy Spirit is at your finger tips right now if you’ve placed your love and trust in Jesus. Your love and trust in Jesus Christ requires faith. He wants you to experience faith in Christ, being r

  • Ephesians | Week #5 - Finding Confidence and Grace

    Ephesians | Week #5 - Finding Confidence and Grace

    07/02/2021 Duração: 39min

    Paul doesn’t lack for confidence. He makes bold statements! Yet, in the letter to the church at Ephesus, he says he is the “least of all the saints.” This isn’t false humility. He says that his confidence comes only from God. Specifically, he claims he is gifted grace from the Lord. What gives him confidence is that God “graced him” with it. Paul is most confident and sure and bold when he is doing what God graced him to do! What fuels your confidence? When you were a kid, where you bolder? Did you not fear rejection or risk? What happened as you got older? Where did this boldness go? You struggle to find confidence today, especially with the advent of social media. It is pervasive for all of us. This is why there are so many books dealing with “Self Confidence”. What if confidence doesn’t come from within? Confidence and boldness are not sourced from our personality, our past successes or what others say about us. This week, we search out the place where true confidence, assuredness and life come from

  • Ephesians | Week #4 - Walking the Path of Peace

    Ephesians | Week #4 - Walking the Path of Peace

    31/01/2021 Duração: 32min

    Is there someone in your life against whom you have unending hostility? It’s not hard to find it in our world right now. It’s everywhere. Even in the church. Hostility is everywhere. It’s extinguishing our light. As a church, we’re meant to be a light. Unfortunately, division, hate and hostility are abound and many within the church are putting up “keep out” signs rather than signs of welcome and love. In his letter to the Ephesians, Paul shows us that Jesus is the path to peace. Where sin brings division, peace brings us unity. But, how do we do this in a world so divided? Obviously making posts on social media isn’t working. This week we explore how to restore your relationship with God and those around you. Speaker: Pastor Brad Beggs

  • Ephesians | Week #3 - Identity Crisis

    Ephesians | Week #3 - Identity Crisis

    24/01/2021 Duração: 36min

    Whether we admit it or not, we care so much. We might express it differently, but we are all looking for someone, or something, to show that we matter. Is it in your family? In your career? In the knowledge you’ve acquired? What if worrying and trying so hard to prove to someone or something that we matter didn’t have to be an option? The Gospel tells us that we don’t have to work harder, achieve more, or prove ourselves to find acceptance or love. That’s given to us, by grace, when we accept Jesus and receive the Holy Spirit. Does what you do flow out of who you are or does who you are flow out of what you do? You don’t have to live in the identity you achieve, but live in what you receive in Christ. Speaker: Amanda Beggs

  • Ephesians | Week #2 - Receive Wisdom and Have Hope

    Ephesians | Week #2 - Receive Wisdom and Have Hope

    17/01/2021 Duração: 25min

    Paul wrote his letter to the church in Ephesus because he heard that the people who lived there loved the Gospel. He was giving thanks to the Lord for them. He prays that the Lord gives them wisdom and hope. Don’t you think we all need a little of that right now? A preacher’s role is to "feed the sheep". Most of the time, all a pastor is doing, is trying to get you to your “next meal.” Each sermon isn’t supposed to solve every issue you face. God often does new things within the difficult things. Difficult times are expressed as "desert times" referring to the periods when Jesus was in the desert. Studies indicate we, as a society, are experiencing mental illness at extremely high rates right now. Entering 2021, most of us are warn out, stressed and feeling anxiety more than ever. This may be the longest period of unrelenting “desert experience” in our recently history. It is time to dig down and look at what God may be doing in this season. Let’s take one step, just one, out of the desert. Speaker

  • Ephesians | Week #1 - The Path Forward

    Ephesians | Week #1 - The Path Forward

    09/01/2021 Duração: 36min

    For the next several weeks, we’re going to take a deep dive into the book of Ephesians. There is so much happening in our nation right now. Regardless of where you stand, you’re probably feeling a wide range of emotion. Yes, reform is needed in a number of our institutions, but we’re focusing on fixing the problem in the wrong place. The way we act is derived from the way we think and the way we think comes from the status of our hearts. The evil we see and experience stems and starts in our hearts. Ephesians presents a path forward. The book is broken into two sections, one deals with how we think and the other deals with how we live. The way we live is dictated by the way we think. For the world to be right, our heart needs to be right. You’re invited to dig in deep with us, visit northway.org for reading material and a free downloadable bookmark.

  • The Writings | How to Walk Through Life

    The Writings | How to Walk Through Life

    05/01/2021 Duração: 34min

    2020 was a lot like an escape room, everyone's goal is just to "get out". Let's be honest, almost all of us just wanted it to be over. The bible has a really unique word for what we've been through… life. The words of Jesus about tribulation in the world are as true today as they were 2000 years ago. Is there a way for us to find our way out? To make sure 2021 doesn't look like 2020? The short answer is: no. We still live in a fallen world. But, if you're familiar with the scriptures, you know that it's not about escapism, it's about learning how to navigate through the highs, lows and everything in between. Speaker: Pastor John Reilly

    27/12/2020 Duração: 29min

    In the bible, the scriptures that refer to Jesus' early years are often referred to as the "infancy narratives." They're very familiar to almost everyone as the Christmas story. Today, Pastor Scott Stevens will be digging into one of the narratives that is not typically preached about. In fact, this is the first time he will be preaching on this text. You're invited to join with us as we turn a bit from Christmas and start looking toward the new year and explore these three movements: 1) Are there issues in your life where you possibly need to open up your mind to change your mind? 2) Is there something that God has been tugging at your hear to explore? But you keep putting it off? 3) What MUST you do in 2021? It's time to do it. Pastor Scott Stevens

  • Twas the Night | Gods Kingdom

    'Twas the Night | God's Kingdom

    26/12/2020 Duração: 32min

    You probably have a lot of Christmas Traditions! One of those traditions may be driving around and looking at Christmas lights. This year, lights were hard to find at the store - many were sold out. It seems as though everyone went over the top to light up the darkness. Despite the incredible lights all over the place, there are many homes decorated with just a single candle in each window. What is the meaning behind this way of decorating? There is more than we see on the surface. Historically, the candle light in the window is a signaling that people are welcome in your home, it's a sign of trust. The same is true in Luke 2:1-21, there is much more than we see on the surface. Luke records that Mary paused and pondered everything that was happening to her. We should take courage in knowing, like Mary, we do not know or understand everything that is going on and that is OK. We should be expectant, in time, to see what God is up to. In that moment she had no way of knowing everything that was to come throug

  • ‘Twas the Night | God’s Plan For Us

    ‘Twas the Night | God’s Plan For Us

    20/12/2020 Duração: 38min

    Have you ever received a gift that you didn’t want, anticipate, or expect? It may have been the opposite of what you hoped for. We then become disappointed. Expectations are unmet. We start to doubt the plan WE had for our lives. But what if, instead of being disappointed in the plan we had for our lives, we found a fresh perspective in the plan that God has for our lives? If we stay in a place of disappointment, we might end up dis-appointing ourselves, and removing ourselves, form the very plans God has had for us all along. Joseph, husband of Mary and earthly father of Jesus, found himself in a moment of disappointment during the very first Christmas. But he chose to trust the Lord and the plan for his life - aiding Mary in the birth of our Savior. We never truly know the direction the Lord wants to take us, but we might just find pieces of it, or even the whole story, if we trust Him instead of ourselves. Just because you may be in a season surrounded by conflict, doesn’t mean you can experience His pe

  • ‘Twas the Night | God’s Promises

    ‘Twas the Night | God’s Promises

    13/12/2020 Duração: 31min

    Everywhere we turn, people are promising us so much. From stores selling us stuff, to weight loss apps, to the government, but how do we know who and what to believe? What about God? What is your sign from God that when “this” happens, you can believe He will come through for you? When we believe God’s promises we’re transformed. But that is much easier said than done. God’s promises transform the way you see your circumstances. You can look at your circumstances through His promises or God’s promises through your circumstances. Christmas is the ultimate reminder that God joins us in our suffering and is with us every moment of every day. Jesus’ birth on earth is a promise from God. We have a faithful God who keeps His promises. This week we discuss the evidence of God keeping his promises through the scripture of Christ’s arrival on earth. Speaker: Amanda Beggs

  • ‘Twas the Night | God’s Surprises

    ‘Twas the Night | God’s Surprises

    06/12/2020 Duração: 36min

    We need Christmas more than ever, because when Jesus was born - he brought light into the darkness. When we’re focused on something we want, we miss what is present. Do you do this with the Christmas story? After doing it over and over and over again, is it possible you are no longer open to something fresh and new: seeing what God is trying to show you? If you dig into Matthew’s text, you’ll notice the surprises that God gives us about Jesus and the Gospel. They’re similar to the “Easter Eggs” that Disney likes to add to their movies. Join us for week #1 of our Christmas series “‘Twas the Night” as we explore the text we all know so well with an eye toward seeing it in a way we’ve never seen it before. Jesus is the light of the world! Speaker: Pastor Dave D’Angelo
