In the midst of trying times, both personally and on a large scale beyond ourselves, it can be difficult to find a spirit of thankfulness. Honestly, we may look around our lives and simply not see much to be thankful for. But, the Bible teaches us, even in the midst of those terrible times, we have MUCH to be thankful for. Join us as we look at Psalm 136, and learn about how to choose to be thankful, even when we don't feel like it

Pastor Tracy gives notes and suggestions on how to share the Good News of Jesus Christ in the context of conversation, instead of by means of a "presentation". The power of the Gospel is for our lives today, as well as eternity. It makes perfect sense that we should be able to find the holy opportunities to share it in the midst of our everyday lives.

Pastor Jason Souza of Christ Community Church, Alaska takes on the next to last week of the "Dying to Know" series, tackling the doctrine of Glorification. If the Gospel really is Good News, we firmly believe it has an incredible impact on our life here on Earth. But, to truly be Good News, we also believe the Bible teaches that everyone will have Eternal Life, either in the Kingdom of Heaven with God, or in a place of eternal suffering where the presence of God will never intercede. We've got our eyes on Heaven!

Pastor Tracy Simmons of Christ Community Church, Alaska kicks off the first weekend of the "Dying to Know" series. As Christians, if we truly believe Jesus is the answer for the world, we MUST be willing to share it with others. But, what if we don't fully understand what it takes to become a Christian? How can we effectively share something we don't know for ourselves? In this introduction to the series, Pastor Tracy lays the foundation by describing the essentials, historical beliefs held by followers of Christ for generations. This message sets the stage for the upcoming weeks where Pastor Tracy and others will speak about the four pillars of the Christian faith and life. Regeneration, Justification, Sanctification, and Glorification.

Pastor Tracy Simmons of Christ Community Church, Alaska takes on the second week of the "Dying to Know" series, tackling the doctrine of Regeneration. This message deals with the essential question, "Does the Good News of Jesus Christ actually DO anything?" Furthermore, if we say we are a Christian, yet haven't experienced any kind of transformation from who we were B.C. or we look and act just like the rest of the world, can we really say we're a follower of Christ?
