From the Rocky Mountains to the Grand Canyon to Niagra Falls, creation has a way of taking your breath away. Psalm 19:1 says “The heavens proclaim the glory of God. The skies display his craftsmanship.” Even as the sun rises and the sun sets, God has a way of catching our attention with splashes of vibrant color. But what if God’s greatest creation, his most beautiful work, his masterpiece wasn’t found in the mountains, a waterfall, or a sunset, but in you?
Masterpiece - Forgiveness
Pastor Brad Davis - August 11, 2019
Bitterness is baggage. It’s always there, always in the way. It’s heavy. Bitterness bears a heavy cost. Isn’t it time for you to let yours go? Join us this weekend as we look at forgiveness as an indispensable tool God uses to shape and mold us into the image of His Son.
Masterpiece - Pain
Pastor Craig Olson - August 4, 2019
Pain and suffering is a universal human experience. It doesn’t matter where you were born, how old you are, your religion, your financial status, or your level of intellect. All of us will experience pain at some point in our lives. Seasons of hurt have a way of stirring questions inside of us. Is God punishing me? Does God even love me? Where is God is in this? What is the point of this suffering? Have you ever asked questions like that?
Masterpiece - Service
Pastor Brad Davis - July 28, 2019
Some of the most famous works of art were commissioned pieces, meaning they were created to be given away. As God's masterpiece, we too were created to be given away. Jesus came not to be served, but to serve and that's the calling that's been placed on us all.
Masterpiece - Fruit of the Spirit
Pastor Mike Farnsley - July 21, 2019
Like a farmer growing crops, our spiritual lives have the ability to produce some pretty amazing fruit. Love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control don't just happen on their own. This fruit is the product of intentional decisions. And we don't produce fruit for us to hoard, but to give it away.
Masterpiece - Music
Pastor Brandon Rood - July, 14, 2019
Music has a way of communicating like nothing else. Ever hit mute while watching a horror film? The suspense is immediately muted. Music helps tell stories, it helps connect our soul to the words of our favorite songs. And scripture makes it clear that music was created for the glory of God and for our good.
Masterpiece - Rest
Pastor Craig Olson - July 7, 2019
As a nation, we're working harder and taking fewer breaks than ever before. Due to our overconnectivity, we're stuck in the comparison trap of seeing what everyone else has and all that we're lacking. America has been called the most anxious country in the world. We're a people in search of rest.
Masterpiece - Community
Pastor Mike Farnsley - June 30, 2019
Community is a word often heard in churches and even more at SCC because it's in our name, Shelbyville Community Church. But what does community have to do with us as a masterpiece? In the world of music, one note sounds good. But when you start playing chords and putting notes together, that's when you start making music. What if each of us, uniquely individual, were designed to work together for a common mission?
Masterpiece - Prayer
Pastor Jessica Seelye - June 23, 2019
The Mona Lisa, the Last Supper, and the Sistine Chapel are all masterpieces, created with intentionality. They are intimate pieces refined by the artist until completion. Created with a plan and a purpose. God uses prayer in the same way! When we have an intentional prayer life with our heavenly Father He uses it to refine us into the Masterpieces that He planned long before we were born.
Masterpiece - You Are a Masterpiece
Pastor Craig Olson - June 16, 2019
It's pretty easy to look at mountain range or a waterfall or a beautiful sunset and be in awe of God's creation. But what if God's greatest creation, his masterpiece, wasn't found in nature, but in you?
