3/16/2014 An Unholy Trinity

Before a soldier can be effective in combat…he needs to learn 2 things: Who is my enemy? & Where am I vulnerable? Spiritual warfare involves conflict with the devil and demonic forces, but it also involves the principle of sin within us (“the flesh”), and the principle of sin in our society (“the world”).

All Out War: Investigating Spiritual Warfare Pastor Tom Lundeen
3/9/2014 There's a War Going On

Despite the clear evidence in Scriptures and in real life experiences, many Christ-followers today are quite unprepared for spiritual warfare; and the results of this unpreparedness are seen everywhere.

All Out War: Investigating Spiritual Warfare Pastor Tom Lundeen
3/2/2014 Stretch Our Reach

The idea of “commitment” isn’t that popular in our culture. Nothing great ever happens without making commitments. How will God "Stretch Us" at Riverside to extend our reach?

Stretch Us Pastor Tom Lundeen
2/23/2014 Stretch Our Passion

Multisite will stretch us in a number of ways, including financially.

Stretch Us Pastor Tom Lundeen
2/16/2014 Stretch Our Hearts

It’s important to talk about money…because our attitude about money reveals the spiritual condition of our hearts (note Matthew 6:21). How does God want to stretch our hearts in becoming more and more generous in our giving to His work?

Stretch Us Pastor Tom Lundeen
2/9/2014 Stretch Us Why?

Multisite is not the only strategy a church can use; but we do think it’s the best one at this stage of Riverside’s life and timeline. Why do we believe this is such an important next step for our church to take?

Stretch Us Pastor Tom Lundeen
2/2/2014 Stretch Us How?

What is a Multisite Church? Why Multisite? What does the Bible have to say about this? Where are we going?

Stretch Us Pastor Tom Lundeen
1/26/2014 So What's Below Your Waterline?

How can we know if we’re really changing for the better?

Below the Waterline Pastor Chip Garrison
1/19/2014 Will Power Won't

Why are bad habits we have so hard to break?

Below the Waterline Pastor Tom Lundeen
1/12/2014 Tongue Tied

God does have a spiritual X-ray tool for us. It’s our tongue.

Below the Waterline Pastor Tom Lundeen
1/5/2014 Tired of Trying?

What God is really about is inwardly transforming you and me to resemble Jesus more and more each day and not faking it. We need to talk about having the right motivation.

Below the Waterline Pastor Tom Lundeen
12/29/2013 Same Old, Same Old

We all want to change for the better, but superficial focus and superficial analysis produces superficial temporary change.

Below the Waterline Pastor Dan Boal
12/24/2013 What Christmas Can Mean for You

The Greatest Story Ever Lived Pastor Tom Lundeen
12/22/2013 Christmas Lights

What do “dark days” look like in our lives and what can the light of Christmas do to counteract our “dark days”?

The Greatest Story Ever Lived Pastor Tom Lundeen
12/15/2013 Bah Humbug or Merry Christmas?

Clearly the first Christmas was described as a joyous occasion. But how can we experience joy right now...?

The Greatest Story Ever Lived Pastor Tom Lundeen

What challenging "next steps" is God asking you to take in your spiritual growth and development in your relationship with Him?

12/1/2013 Do: Unity

What's the difference between unity & uniformity? Why does unity matter, and what can chip away at it in our lives?

Do: Make Every Effort Pastor Tom Lundeen
11/24/2013 Do: Encourage

Encouragement gives us perspective, hope and strength; it inspires us to continue to walk with God despite trials. Encouraging others doesn't happen accidentally and it can even be challenging for us to do. So why do we sometimes find it hard as Christ-followers to encourage each other?

Do: Make Every Effort Pastor Tom Lundeen
11/17/2013 Do: Rest

As odd as it may seem to us at first glance, the Scriptures indicate it’s really urgent for us to make “rest” something we work very hard at!

Do: Make Every Effort Pastor Tom Lundeen
11/10/2013 Do: Forgive

Jesus is the ultimate model of forgiving others. How do we "do" forgiveness in our lives?

Do: Make Every Effort Pastor Tom Lundeen
11/3/2013 Do: Integrity

Why do we need to "make every effort" to be people of integrity? Why is it such a huge deal to Christians? Let's dig into 2 Peter 3:14 to see what God has to say about it!

Do: Make Every Effort Pastor Tom Lundeen
10/27/2013 [Missions Festival 2013] Sent Ones

We have all been in a situation where we have said, "Don't Send Me!" Have you said that lately? Where is God sending you?

GodQuest Pastor Tom Lundeen

GodQuest Pastor Tom Lundeen
9/15/2013 The Beginning

GodQuest Pastor Tom Lundeen
9/8/2013 The Quest

To engage in this quest, regardless of where we may be starting from, will be very spiritually significant thing for all of us to do. The reality is, “Everyone is searching; not everyone knows it.” Let's begin this GodQuest together on an All-Church Journey; what is truth and how do we know that it exists?

GodQuest Pastor Tom Lundeen

Open your eyes to see God's GREATER authority & vision for the world & for your life.

Greater Series Pastor Dan Boal
8/25/2013 Digging Ditches

The reason we fail to turn inspiration into implementation is that we want miracles. Not work orders. Is your plan man driven or God driven?

Greater Series Pastor Dan Boal

Join with Pastor Tom as he takes a look at a passage in Acts about Paul and reasons why he was recognized in hell and what that means for each of our lives.

Final Destination Pastor Tom Lundeen
7/21/2013 Are You Bragged About in Heaven?

I want us to see that not only are either heaven or hell our final destination, but that both heaven and hell come into play in our lives on earth. What was it about Job that caused God to brag about him in heaven?

Final Destination Pastor Tom Lundeen
7/15/2013 Don't Erase Hell

The idea of hell is something that of talked about at all, is either confined to usage as a curse word, something to joke about, or something reserved for gruesome exploitation in a horror movie. Today I want to help us move past our wrong ideas, images, and prejudices about the reality of hell.

Final Destination Pastor Tom Lundeen
7/7/2013 As it is in Heaven

As it is in heaven...what does that really mean? Even if we believe in heaven’s existence and that our final destination is heaven, we don’t think about it very often because we don’t have a solid grasp on exactly what heaven is.

Final Destination Pastor Tom Lundeen
6/30/2013 Doing God's Will (Part 2)

REALationships Pastor Tom Lundeen
6/2/2013 [REALationships] More Jesus and Less Religion

REALationships Pastor Tom Lundeen
5/26/2013 [REALationships] Is He/She The One?

REALationships Pastor Tom Lundeen

Easter 2013 Pastor Tom Lundeen
3/24/2013 [The Cross & My Heart] The Cross Means Mission

The cross is also God’s great invitation to the world. Jesus never intended His cross to become a campfire that Christ-followers sit around to warm themselves, He did intend His cross to light a wildfire in Christ-followers to send us out into a broken and needy world.

The Cross & My Heart Pastor Tom Lundeen
3/17/2013 [The Cross & My Heart] The Cross Means Holiness

Did you know as Christ followers our union with Jesus means we experience freedom not only from any past sin, but also the ability to reject sin's power in our lives now? Learn more about what Jesus meant when He said to 'take up your cross' and how the transformative power represented by the cross can move us from a self-centered lifestyle to one marked by spiritual growth and health.

The Cross & My Heart Pastor Tom Lundeen
3/10/2013 [The Cross & My Heart] The Cross Means Victory

The Cross & My Heart Pastor Tom Lundeen
3/3/2013 [The Cross & My Heart] The Cross Means Community

The community of Christ is the community of His cross…the cross is the GPS that gives us clear directions in a dysfunctional and confused world.

The Cross & My Heart Pastor Tom Lundeen
2/24/2013 [The Cross & My Heart] The Cross Means Love

While most people have an opinion on what they think love is, and books have been written to define and distinguish the various kinds of love, the Bible clearly indicates there is only one way to understand what real love actually is: the cross.

The Cross & My Heart Pastor Tom Lundeen
2/17/2013 [The Cross & My Heart] The Cross Means Forgiveness

When it comes to the cross and forgiveness, often we have incorrect answers and we’re even asking the wrong questions because we do not fully comprehend. Forgiveness is such a huge issue to navigate because it’s the place where divine perfection and human rebellion collide…

The Cross & My Heart Pastor Tom Lundeen
2/10/2013 [The Cross & My Heart] Why a Cross?

What did a cross mean in ancient Roman and Jewish worlds? Why is the cross intersecting with my heart, and what does it tell us?

When Life Feels Difficult Pastor Tom Lundeen
11/11/2012 [When Life Feels Difficult] When I'm Lonely

God has provided 3 resources/remedies to help reduce the pain of loneliness in our earthly lives: His plan to live for, His people to connect to and His presence to live in. Take a look at each of these as Pastor Tom expands on each of them, and what they mean in your daily lives.
