The Search for Significance: Our True Identity

October 19th, 2018

Based on the book The Search for Significance by Robert McGee, Pastor Kevin's new 5-part series begins by looking at the source of our self-worth. The Enemy tells us that if we can work to gain the approval of others, we will feel good about ourselves. The truth is that God does not require anything of us in order to be worthy of love and acceptance.

The Outreach Vision of Hays Christian Church (Part 3)

October 12th, 2018

In Part 3 of the Vision and Outreach of HCC series, Pastor Kevin reminds us that God doesn’t call the qualified, but rather he qualifies the called. The “underdog” stories of Notre Dame walk-on football player Rudy Ruettiger and Scripture’s Gideon are used to show that with God all things are possible. Though being outwardly focused can be challenging, it is what we must do to be faithful to that which the Lord has called us to.

The Outreach Vision of Hays Christian Church (Part 2)

October 5th, 2018

Pastor Kevin presents the story of Nehemiah, whose vision was to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem and accomplished it in 52 days. Vision is something to focus all your energy on, and for Hays Christian Church, that means missions and outward focus.

The Outreach Vision of Hays Christian Church (Part 1)

September 24th, 2018

In this call to action, Pastor Kevin lays out why it is vital for the health of our church to live on mission, focusing not on ourselves but on the world around us. He implores us to look towards self-sacrifice instead of self-preservation, to look out instead of looking in, and to act on behalf of others instead of acting out of selfish motives.

What Does God Require of You?

September 7th, 2018

In Micah's day, the churches did what they felt was morally right, but that wasn't the same as doing what God said was right. Jennie Straight goes over what justice, mercy, and humility mean and how we can better embody those virtues.

Stop Sinning

August 17th, 2018

Lakeview Christian Camp director Brian Barr presents us with a truth about sin: sin is communal. When we sin, it has an effect on those around us, so we should never think that it only matters to us and God. The solution is to stop sinning, which as Jesus proves, is not impossible.
