Taking New Territory in Troubling Times
Taking New Territory in Troubling Times is our new series based on the book of 1 Thessalonians. The first-century Thessalonian church is a perfect role model for what the Church needs to be today. This book study is going to give us great vision, inspiration, and education for what our lives can and should look like for the glory of God, even in troubling times.
Taking New Territory in Troubling Times // Part 5
Pastor Steve Berger | May 24, 2020
In Part 5, Pastor Steve returns to the pulpit to talk about Satan’s work to disrupt and divide relationships in the body of Christ. He knows a house divided will not stand, so He tries to disrupt and divide us, knowing we’ll be unable to stand in the fullness of God’s will for the church. Relational problems in the family will prevent us from taking new territory in troubling times! Let’s not forfeit the power, favor, testimony, blessing, and glory by falling prey to Satan’s hindering, tempting schemes.
Taking New Territory in Troubling Times // Part 4
Pastor Rob Rogers | May 17, 2020
In Part 4, Pastor Rob talks about receiving the Word, believing the Word, and obeying the Word – three profound truths out of the 2nd chapter of 1 Thessalonians that are all necessary for us to mature in our walk. We must be a people who read the Word regularly, relationally, and expectantly, believing that God will meet us right at that place. It is not enough to just read and believe the Word, we must be a people who are “doers” of the Word.

Pastor Rob Rogers | May 10, 2020
In Part 3, Pastor Rob dives into chapter two of 1 Thessalonians and speaks on Paul’s message, Paul’s motive, and Paul’s method. Paul’s message was built on helping people follow Christ, not himself. May we walk worthy of God who calls us into His own Kingdom and glory.
Taking New Territory in Troubling Times // Part 2
Pastor Steve Berger | May 3, 2020
Covering the first 10 verses of 1 Thessalonians, Pastor Steve breaks down and explains each verse. Three principles are bookends for this chapter: we start by turning to God from idols, we continue through life by serving the true and living God with a labor of love, and we patiently wait, with a hopeful expectation, of the glorious return of Jesus who delivers us from wrath and gives us Heaven’s glory!
Taking New Territory in Troubling Times // Part 1
Pastor Steve Berger | April 26, 2020
In Part 1, Pastor Steve lays a foundation for our new study and provides some key historical information regarding the Church during the time of Paul’s writing of 1 Thessalonians. Paul realized that you can’t take new territory in troubling times if you are satisfied with how far you have come, what you have accomplished, or where you’re currently at (no matter how impressive it might be or sound). It is time to take new territory!
