I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.
– Jesus (John 16:33)

Worship The Lord In Giving



We give as an act of worship. We ask big, pray big, and expect big things to come out of a people that lives and operates in Kingdom mentality. Jesus is King over our finances and places us as stewards over His income. We give back to launch new Kingdom opportunities for the Gospel to reach to ends of the earth.

    I Love My Church – Serving

    ILMC logoWhen Jesus saves us, God gives us each a spiritual gift that helps us to love one another by serving one another.  What if all of us allowed our gifts to be used to love this church and this community?

    I Love My Church – Community

    ILMC logo

    Community is a vital element of our local church.  But it's sometimes difficult to create real community when we're used to having "fences" between us.  Jesus calls us to break down those things that separate us so that we can truly love each other as He loves us.

    I Love My Church – Introduction

    ILMC logo

    Jesus loved the Church, and He asks us to love the Church, too.  But what does that mean, and what does it look like when it's done the way that Christ wanted us to do it?  This 5 week teaching series is filled with practical instruction on how to do what Jesus wanted us to do.

    Easter Sunday


    Easter Sunday allows us to see how the Way of the Cross not only highlights the important events of Jesus' last days on earth, it also provides a Way of the Cross for us to follow Him!  Jesus blazed a trail for all of us on that first Easter Sunday!
    The conclusion of this message refers to a video that was played during the live service. You may watch the video at this link  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zT1YiZvd-OE

    Palm Sunday


    The Way of the Cross includes Palm Sunday, which dates back further than we may have thought.  For hundreds of years the people of God had been waiting for the prophecies to be fulfilled and for the King to enter Jerusalem.  Little did they know how this event foreshadowed His entry into the spiritual Kingdom we enjoy today.

    The Lord’s Supper


    The origins of the Lord's Supper, or Communion, are much more ancient than we might have thought.  The Passover Meal was an important part of The Way of the Cross, and Jesus takes time to show us that He is the Passover Lamb.

    Focus on Eternity
    Cheerful giving is not truly possible until we are able to change our focus from the temporary things of this life, to the eternal things God has for us.
