10/19/2014 Freedom: We Are Rescued to Become Rescuers

4/13/2014 The Pursuit of Everything

If our treasure (our heart) is focused on things outside of God's heart, then it is obvious that we can be spiritually vulnerable to the snares and schemes of the adversary.

All Out War: Investigating Spiritual Warfare Pastor Tom Lundeen
4/6/2014 If It Feels Good...

All Out War: Investigating Spiritual Warfare Pastor Chip Garrison
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?

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

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

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

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
7/14/2013 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.
