I Quit-Abrham Cho - Audio

Hey family, People are leaving the church and deconstructing their Christian faith in alarming numbers. Many would say they are disillusioned with God because of the hypocrisy of Christians. There has never been a more important time to ask what a truly life-changing encounter with God looks like. This Sunday we will be looking at the story of Jacob wrestling with God, to see what it has to teach on this very urgent question. Service begins at 10 a.m. at 360 Schermerhorn St. We look forward to seeing you there! --Edwin

Who's in charge here-Pastor John Filsame - Audio

Does it ever seem to you that many people today are not responsible to anybody? That they're just out for themselves, doing their own thing, whatever seems right to them? This Sunday we'll be looking back at a time in Bible history which was very similar. At the time of the Book of Judges, Moses was long dead, and David would not be king for generations to come. Again and again the people disobeyed God and got themselves into trouble. But God was gracious; he sent leaders called judges to guide the people through dangerous times. This Sunday at 10 a.m., join us at 360 Schermerhorn as visiting pastor John Fils-Aime speaks about the time of the judges. Kids' Church will begin at 10 a.m. as well. --Edwin

How NOT to be a difficult person - Audio

Hey Family, Now that we’ve spent several weeks in our FAMILY MATTERS series talking about what the new family of God looks like, this Sunday we’ll talk about how to express ourselves in uncomfortable, difficult situations. This message is so important, because we will always have difficult people that we have to respond to in our lives, and sometimes we ourselves will be those difficult people. But did you know we can learn to be our best selves in those moments—whether it’s with our children, our parents, spouse, friends, co-workers, or even just a stranger on the street? Come this Sunday to hear what the Bible says about this, and move more towards looking like Jesus in difficult situations. I can’t wait to see you at 10 a.m. at 360 Schermerhorn. Children’s Church begins at 10 also, and the youth group will meet this week as well. --Edwin Twitter Facebook Website

Family Matters-Serving - Audio

ey family, everybody knows that when you’re part of a family it’s really important to join together to do whatever it is God wants you to do. For example, when you’re throwing a party, you’re all meeting at someone’s house, people are cooking the food, someone else is doing the dishes, etc. Or think about when you help somebody move. People in the family are packing, and someone is lifting the heavy boxes, and somebody else volunteers to drive the truck. When we’re in a family, we have to agree that part of loving one another is serving one another. This week we get to learn a great deal about how we have been served—and how the fact that we have been served will equip us to serve others. I can’t wait to see you at 10 a.m. Sunday, 360 Schermerhorn. We’ll have a special event following the message, so be sure to come! --Edwin

Family Matters-How to find a life of peace - Audio

It’s so easy to get caught up in the noise of day-to-day life. Whether you’re pro-mask or anti-mask, whether you’re heavy into politics or can’t stand to hear another word about it, or even if it's only the sound of traffic that gets you down … this life is filled with noise. How can we just be still with the Lord in such a culture of noise and aggression? This week we’re going to talk about what we’re all looking for, and that’s living a life of peace. I look forward to seeing you Sunday, 10 a.m. at 360 Schermerhorn. Bring a friend who also needs peace! Kids’ church starts at 10 a.m. too, and the teen group will meet also. Important note: This Sunday is the last chance to join our newcomer class—A New Life in Christ. It will take place at noon every Sunday for six weeks. If you have questions about what it means to be a Christian, or are thinking about being baptized and becoming a member of Next Step CC, I encourage you to take this class. --Edwin

Family Matters-What is truth - Audio

Hey family, In our society people turn to various sources in search of the truth. Whatever you think of the terms “fake news” and “alternate facts,” they do bring up a good question—where can we find the truth? There’s so much on the line if we get it wrong. If we believe lies, our marriages and relationships will be in trouble. Our children will not benefit from great wisdom. Our whole society will suffer. It’s vital that we have the truth to rely on. These are big questions for us to wrestle with. So this Sunday we’re going to talk about how we can find the truth. You don’t want to miss this. Please invite a friend to 360 Schermerhorn and I’ll see you at 10 a.m. on Sunday. Kids’ church starts at 10 a.m. also. Special Invitation: In honor of the mothers in our lives,

Improving your love life - Audio

Hey family, Did you know that love is why you were put on this earth? It’s the very reason for our existence—we see it in the scriptures. Since this is true, why not become better at both receiving love from God and others and then overflowing that love to God and others? What would it look like to be a more loving person, living in a more loving family, and having a more loving church? It would transform our lives. Join us at 360 Schermerhorn this Sunday as we continue our series “Improving Your Love Life.” It’s an incredible opportunity to invite a friend during this Lent season so that we can all grow in affection for Jesus together.

Every single one of those relation needs love, so we need to know where it comes from and how to let it flow throughout our lives.
