Dealing with Divorce Gracefully

Divorce is not God’s ideal and it’s not usually ours either — but, divorce happens. We want to up hold the kind of kingdom community Jesus envisions, while at the same time practicing the same grace he had for real people. We don’t want to add to the pain people already experience around divorce, we want to bring the healing of grace!

One Size Doesn’t Fit All

As we begin a new series designed to examine what God says about Christian marriage, it is important we begin by recognizing not everyone is called to be married. Some people are called to be single and they are a gift to the church too.

Life isn’t fair. Everyone goes through hard times and difficulties–that includes Christians. So, how are Christians supposed to respond when times are tough?

Northview Community Church - Sermon Series on Women

Women’s Work

We have recognized that in Christ Jesus there is no distinction between male and female, that God has called us all to be his ministers. However, we have to also recognize that women are at a disadvantage due to a history of being told they cannot enter all places in the church. So, we need to use our power and influence to empower these members of our body to take up the gifts and vocations that God has called them to.

Don’t Get Cocky

Pride is a condition of the human heart that the church has always cautioned Christians to beware. Boasting is a symptom of that pride. If we are going to be God’s people then we must always beware this vice which lays close at hand. Strangely enough the solution isn’t to focus on humility.
