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 - 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?
