    Beyond Pleasure
    The first stop on the Teacher's Detour is pleasure. Having explored many different means of pleasure, the Teacher's conclusion is that it is all futile.  How do we as Christians respond to pleasure? This week we develop a biblical theology of pleasure.

    The Detour
    The Teacher takes us a on a detour on our quest as he explores alternatives to finding meaning and purpose in this life. The message is based on Ecclesiastes 1:12-18 and challenges us to accept the reality that life is meaningless apart from God and to accept the things we cannot change rather creating the frustration and grief that comes with pursuing the impossible.

    What’s Your Gain?
    From time to time we will combine our study of Ecclesiastes with an overview of key themes in Philippians. The two books have a unified message of meaning, truth and happiness. Philippians is like a spy glass that brings the themes of Ecclesiastes closer and into focus helping us to understand what the Teacher is saying. This week Paul helps answers the question of the Teacher from Eccl. 1:3 - what is the gain for our labor under the sun?

    Wired for Worship
    Series: (All)
    In this message on worship, Pastor Bill highlights seven worship instincts. The premise is that God has uniquely wired each of us to worship Him. Unfortunately most churches are structured around only one or two instincts. Identifying your instinct can help free you to worship and become more understanding of those whose instincts may differ from you.
