    HOPE GROWS HERE: It Is Written
    If we are to build bridges of grace that bear the weight of truth, those bridges must be built upon proper and substantial piers (core values).  The first, and most central, of these values is Biblical Authority.  It is only when the Word of God is held in the highest of esteem and its principles faithfully applied in our lives, that we can makes sense of this broken world and bring real hope to its hurting people.

    HOPE GROWS HERE: Series Intro
    People cannot live without hope.  There is no shortage of despair and hopelessness in our world.  The Church is to be a beacon of hope in a despairing world.  The church needs to be a place where hope grows in the hearts and lives of people.

    Jesus tells a parable of a father, who is a vineyard owner and his two sons who he asks to work the vineyard.  The sons each respond verbally but with an opposite behavioral response.  Which son are you most like?

    SUMMER IN THE SON: Happy are the Pure-Hearted
    Why is it that some people can see certain things and others cannot?  For example, you may be familiar with the fascinating, 3-D drawings called "Magic Eye" images.  Some can see them while others cannot.  Another examples would be the world of color.  Some people see colors clearly, others cannot.  Why is it that some people can see God, or the evidence of God while others cannot.  Jesus gives us the answer.  He makes it clear that it is an issue of the heart.

    SUMMER IN THE SON: Happy are the MERCIFUL
    Here on earth we often here the cry for justice.  "I just want justice," we say.  The reality is, that our greatest need is for mercy, for each of us is a sinner.  Those who truly understand this will freely extend mercy to others.  When we do, the appreciation for the mercy we have received deepens all the more in eternal happiness.

    We do not usually associate mourning with happiness, but Jesus did.  We need to discover why.  Does all mourning lead to happiness?  If not, what did Jesus mean?

    SUMMER IN THE SON: Happy are the Poor in Spirit
    Everyone wants to be happy.  The problem is that most of tend to look in all the wrong places.  Jesus tells us the pathway to true happiness.  It is not at all what most of us would think.  The first step is an accurate view of one's self in light of who God is.  Jesus calls this, being "poor in spirit."

    DESIGNER HOMES: Real Men
    Real men are desperately needed in the home.  The absence of real men is taking a heavy toll on both the home and society.  The remedy for our sickness is found in God's design for manhood

    DESIGNER HOMES: Border Patrol-Pt. 2
    The home is under attack and God's children must protect the border land of God's divine design.  This means, among other things, a life of purity and the avoidance of any form of sexual immorality
