Advent Adoration of the King

November 29, 2017
Travis Marsh
You might not be aware that the season of Advent is both remembrance (of Christ's first coming) and anticipation (of Christ's second coming).  Advent is much more than the wonderful story of the baby Jesus being born to be our Savior.  It is also the anticipation of His coming again, the yet to be fulfilled promise of his return in glory with his angels, to sit upon his glorious throne (Matt. 25:31).  This Advent season Travis and Marty will lead us to celebrate both the remembrance of the baby in the manger, as well as the promised second ...

Pursuing Happiness

September 20, 2017

Blaise Pascal stated: "All men seek happiness. This is without exception. Whatever different means they employ, they all tend to this end." I think this is true; we humans may pursue happiness in different ways, but we all seek it.  And we inform each other in both bold and more subtle ways what we believe will make humans happy. We sometimes believe myths and never find happiness: That ongoing perception that our life as a whole is fulfilling, meaningful and pleasant. In this series we will look at some of the ideas flowing from leading ...

Empower people to Pursue Their Call in Christ Over the next month, Canyon Creek will spend Sunday morning’s working out the meaning of our new mission statement.

The Gospel According to David

April 20, 2017
Marty Scales
The life of King David, with all his flaws, victories and defeats, is great for us to study and reflect upon. David's heart and mind are exposed in the narrative of the books of Samuel and in David's poetry found in the Psalms. Because we see both the very good and the very worst of his motives and desires, we can inspect our own hearts to see if we are men and women after God's own heart, or still under construction. We can clearly see our need for the servant King who sacrifices his life for us.

Easter Experience

April 05, 2017
Marty Scales
The Christian Church has called this coming week "Holy Week" because it is the focus of God's great redemptive effort on our behalf. First we see Jesus walking into Jerusalem where some shout "Hosanna", joyfully welcoming Him as their hoped for King. But soon powerful enemies will take Him in order to stop His movement and arrest His influence. On the day that thousands of lambs were being offered as Passover sacrifices, Jesus too was sacrificed. They thought they were executing a dangerous false teacher but instead Jesus was allowing them to ...

Pictures - Sermon Series

February 23, 2017
Marty Scales
In the Scriptures there are several Pictures or metaphors that help us to understand God and his desire to have relationship with us. When you think about it, you realize that God is far different from the humans he created. How can we possibly relate to the One who is so far above and beyond us? It's good to know that He desires relationship and calls us to come to Him. In this series, we will see that we can come to Him like a sheep to its Shepherd, like a vine to its Owner, like a branch to a Vine, like a bride to a Groom or like a subject ...

Attached - Sermon Series

January 01, 2017
CCPC
Most of us would say that we are “Attached”. We have relationships with other people ranging from mere Acquaintance to Friendships, to the highly significant Attachment of Marriage and Family. These relationships bring us many of the things we most desire in life; they also surprise us with unexpected moments of difficulty and pain. The Bible is remarkably full of candid stories of relationships and interestingly, most of them are examples of what not to do. We Christians, because of God’s work in us, are called to something new. We are ...
