Most of us want clarity. Where should I go to school? Should I quit my job? Where should I move? Should I marry this person? We all want clarity. Alas, clarity is so very rare. This doesn't seem to necessarily be a problem with our ability to discern the specifics of the will of God (though we could all grow in this area!). Maybe it's more indicati…
 
In the 1997 Stephen Speilberg film "Amistad" John Quincy Adams says, "In a courtroom, whoever has the best story wins." It's a great line (whether or not John Quincy Adams actually said it in real life). And, there is deep, resonating truth found in it. In our lives, the best story will win. The story that most captures our imaginations, and stirs …
 
What do we do with tough questions, emotions, or doubts? Should we stuff them down and ignore them? Should we "jump ship" and run from our previous faith? Or, should we listen to them, and process them with nuance and care? In this week's version of our "Reflections on Spiritual Formation" series we take a look at this tricky subject and try to add…
 
It's easy to fall into ruts. We get comfortable. It's so easy to slip into patterns of life where we unintentionally stop stretching, exercising, reading, and learning. In today's midweek teaching we talk about the importance of being a life-long learner who reads broadly. What we read (and the media we consume in general) will shape and form us. S…
 
Have you ever experienced someone lashing out at you in a hurtful way? Chances are that person had some unresolved pain or anger going on within their own heart that unfortunately was misdirected at you. We've all been on the receiving end of irrational anger, and, we've also all been on the giving end too. In today's teaching we explore the symbio…
 
In today's teaching we discuss the importance of learning how to do two things at a time. We need to be where we are, present to the people and the tasks in front of us. And, as followers of Christ, we also need to commune with Him throughout our day. Each day is an invitation to simultaneously live our lives while living life with Jesus .…
 
Last week we talked about the inevitable reality of personal failure in our spiritual formation journeys. In this week's teaching we're talking about the reality of our leaders failing us. What happens to our faith when a trusted authority is found to be abusive or dishonest? Join us as we look at Ezekiel 34 and John 10 in today's midweek teaching.…
 
Do you sometimes struggle with saying "no"? Maybe you have a hard time saying no to that extra helping of ice cream? Or, maybe you have a hard time saying no to requests from people in your life and find yourself persistently overcommitted. In today's teaching we look at Jesus' example of saying "no" so that He could say "yes" to the right things.…
 
So often we "go to God" to get our needs met. We're hurting, or tired, or angry, or sad, and so we come before God needing a spiritual fill-up. While it's absolutely imperative to learn to receive good things from the Lord, if that is the motivation for our relationship with Him, the Lord essentially becomes a divine vending machine. If, however, w…
 
In so many ways our culture teaches us that life is ultimately about "me". In a hyper-consumeristic, individualistic society we can't get away from this message. But is that actually true? Is life really about me? Or, is there a better, grander, and greater story that we are each invited to be a part of? Today's midweek teaching invites us to move …
 
It's being estimated that the average American in 2021 sees somewhere between 6,000 to 10,000 ads per day. Each of us are being told, thousands of times each day, that we need something "more" in order to be happy or satisfied. What are the implications of this in our spiritual formation? In today's midweek teaching we discuss how contentment in Ch…
 
Join us today as we continue walking through Frost's contrasting list of attitudes exhibited by an orphan spirit versus a spirit of sonship. Our identity as children of God is rooted in God's work in us through His Son Jesus. Thanks be to God that He has welcomed us as children into His family through Christ.…

Our identity as children of God is foundational to who we are in Christ. Today, as we continue our ongoing midweek series on Spiritual Formation we begin a four part teaching on our spiritual adoption through Christ. We'd love to have you join us today as we jump into this pivotal topic.Bởi Parker Ford Church
 
Reflections on Spiritual Formation: Defender of the Weak Two men went up to the temple to pray...Have you heard this one? One man sought to justify himself by comparing his actions to others. The other man beat his chest and cried out in vulnerable confession about his sinfulness and brokenness. Which man went home justified? Self-righteousness is …
 
From Genesis to Revelation the Scriptures reveal God's love for all people from all the nations of the earth. In today's service we're talking about God's heart for the nations. Join us as we explore the amazing picture of the nations gathered around the throne of Jesus found in Revelation 5.Bởi Parker Ford Church
 
Reflections on Spiritual Formation: Can I Change? In today's mid-week teaching we ask the question, "Can I actually change?" So many of us experience the hopeless feeling of being stuck. Have you struggled with this? Why can't I seem to break bad habits, or stop eating junk food, or live a more loving life? If you are anything like me (or the 7.5 b…
 
He is risen! Welcome to our Easter celebration. We are so glad to have you with us today. The bodily resurrection of Jesus is the cornerstone of the Christian faith. Join us as we explore one of the primary results of the resurrection of Jesus - reconciliation. Reconciliation between Jews and Gentiles was the original gospel issue that dominated th…
 
Hosanna! Today we celebrate the Triumphal Entry of Jesus into Jerusalem. Within a few short days many of the same people who welcomed Jesus with the waving of palm branches and shouts of acclamation were shouting "Crucify him!" Why did things change so quickly? Today we examine the expectations we put on God and what happens when He doesn't do what…
 
Costly Faith: When It Costs Too Much (2) Jesus didn't pretend that following Him would be easier than it actually is. He wasn't going to falsely advertise a life of ease and comfort. Rather, Jesus warned anyone who expressed interest in following Him of the cost. It was a cost that He knew all too well. It was a cost that He was ready and willing t…
 
Costly Faith - Faith When It Costs Too Much (Part 1) Did you know that a Gentile prostitute is listed in both the genealogy of Jesus and listed among the heroes of the faith in Hebrews 11? It may sound crazy, but it's true. In this weekend's service we continue our "Costly Faith" service and begin a two part teaching on faith and the cost of discip…
 
Costly Faith - Faith When I Need to Forgive (Part 2) In this weekend's service we continue our ongoing "Costly Faith" series and explore the connection between faith and forgiveness. One of Jesus' final phrases during His crucifixion was "Father forgive them." Jesus has perfectly modeled for us a life of faith and forgiveness. We hope you can join …
 
Costly Faith: When I Need to Forgive (1) Jonah might not be the first story that comes to mind when you think about the theme of forgiveness, however, underneath the narrative lurks the question from God to His prophet Jonah, "Jonah, are you willing to forgive your enemies?" This weekend, our PFC Minister of Caregiving, Dave Willauer, brings this t…
 
Costly Faith - Faith When I'm Scared (Part 2) Do you think Jesus ever felt afraid? In today's teaching we ask this and other related questions as we continue our two-part teaching titled "Faith When I'm Scared." In today's service we'll compare the final night of the first king of Israel to that of the final and true King - Jesus. How did these two…
 
Costly Faith - Faith When I'm Scared (Part 1) Have you ever made the same mistake twice? Yup, I have too. And we're in good company. Abraham, who is called the "father of our faith" made the same blunder two times. Once it's recorded at the beginning of his story in Genesis 12 and the second time in Genesis 20. Abraham got really scared, and then h…
 
Reflections on Spiritual Formation: Spiritual Disciplines If you have ever done even the most cursory exploration on the topic of spiritual formation, it's likely that you have come across the topic of spiritual disciplines. Discipline is a word out of vogue in our individualistic, postmodern, materialistic culture. But there can be no true maturit…
