    Godliness without Power
    Series: Special
    We welcome Doug Paul to Community Alliance Church. He shared reflections from 2 Timothy 3:5 where Paul wrote about false teachers who had come into the church ashaving a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people. The challenge is to make sure that our religion is grounded in Christ Jesus and His Word.

    Being Winsome
    How can we talk about and live out the truth creatively and winsomely in a pluralistic culture? Since most of our friends and neighbors see things differently, how can we make sure we are being understood? Jude's creative writing was directed to reach his readers. How are we reaching our community where they are? How are we incarnating the truth of Jesus?

    A Great Offering
    Our next installment of our study on Jude teaches us the importance of bearing fruit. Promise without potential is useless. Many come to church today alone with no connection with those they worship alongside each week. Jesus created a church body to watch out and care for one another. Due to technical error, this message is in a text format only. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Responding to Evil — Building Community
    Jude addresses an error in the early church to reveals that these false teachers were selfish. The same plague threatens to destroy the fellowship of the church today. In this message we look at the symptoms of a man-centered religion verses a Christ-centered faith and how to promote a biblical view of self and church.

    Ordinary People…Extraordinary God = Daniel & Wilberforce
    We take a break from Jude for the summer to visit various themes. To kick off the summer we will revisit our theme for 2013--In the Hands of an Extraordinary God. As we seek to do something so big that without God it is certain fail, we must realize that our success comes not because are great, but because the God we serve is great. This morning's message looks at the life of Daniel and how he inspired William Wilberforce to abolish slavery in England. Discover six steps that we can follow ourselves as we seek to do something great for God. The final challenge of this message is to realize that there are many issues facing the church an the world today that need another Wilberforce. Will the church stand up to be the voice of the voiceless in the 21st century?
