Why People Reject Jesus

Watch "Why People reject Jesus" By Greg Sidders
White Pine Community Church March 18, 2018

Some people say "I can't" when what they really mean is "I won't."
They say that what is keeping them from Jesus is an unconvinced mind, but the real issue is an unwilling heart.
In our study of Mark 11:27--12:27, we are going to see through the intellectual objections of Christ's critics into the motives of their hearts ... and perhaps discover what lies beneath our own reluctance to go all in.

Jesus Under Pressure

Watch "Jesus Under Pressure" By Greg Sidders
White Pine Community Church March 11, 2018

"True character is revealed in the choices a human being makes under pressure. The greater the pressure, the deeper the revelation."
It was Robert McKee who wrote that, and we know it's true, because we have seen it in our own lives and in the lives of others.  Pressure reveals character.

In our study of Mark 10:46--11:25, we will see what character traits Jesus displayed when He was under pressure. I think it will increase both your reverence for Him and your desire to be more like Him.

Descending Into Greatness

Watch "Descending Into Greatness" By Greg Sidders
White Pine Community Church March 4, 2018

"We are built for significance," wrote Joe Stowell. "Our problem is not that we search for it, but that we search for it in all the wrong places."

OK, then, what's the right place?

In Mark 10:32-45, Jesus gives us a clear and unforgettable answer to that question. If you want to be a truly significant person--dare I say, a great person--don't miss church this Sunday.

Young At Heart

Watch "Young At Heart" By Greg Sidders
White Pine Community Church February 25, 2018

We expect kids to learn from their elders, but the most important lesson in life is something they can teach us.
What do kids know that we adults don't? And why do we have such a hard time learning what comes so naturally to them?
We'll learn from the way Jesus interacts with both children and adults (in Mark 10:13-31) how to be young at heart when it comes to that which matters most.

Jesus On Divorce & Remarriage

Watch "Jesus On Divorce & Remarriage" By Greg Sidders
White Pine Community Church February 11, 2018

Divorce has wounded more people per square mile than almost any other relational tragedy. No wonder we're reluctant to subject ourselves to a sermon about it!

But one thing we can count on when Jesus is doing the teaching is that we will both hear truth and feel grace. I hope you will take the risk of joining us as we study Mark 10:1-12, because only good can come from sitting at the feet of Jesus.

Teachable Moments

Watch Teachable Moments By Greg Sidders
White Pine Community Church February 4, 2018

Imagine looking back on February 4, 2018 as one of the most memorable days of your life--not because that was the day the Patriots won their sixth Super Bowl, but because that was the day God spoke to you so personally and so powerfully that your life was never the same.
It is remarkable to me how God can use an ordinary church service to do something extraordinary in the life of a Jesus-follower. I'm praying that our study of Mark 9:30-50 will have that kind of impact on your life, and mine.

Power Surge

Watch "Power Surge" By Greg Sidders
White Pine Community Church January 28, 2018

We live in an age of medical "miracles". So much of what used to be incurable is now treated with remarkable success. But what should we do when we are told that "there is nothing more we can do"? That may be a hypothetical question for you right now, or it might be an urgent one.
I believe Mark 9:14-29 provides answers that are as relevant today as they were in the ancient world. From this passage we are going to learn how to access the healing power of God when it's all we have left.
And if you happen to need that power right now, we'll do everything we can to help you get it.
