Summer in the Psalms Sermons
We are often told, “There are two kinds of people in the world…” While an apparently easy way to classify people, there are far more kinds of people when it comes to obeying God. Which kind are you and what kind of person surrounds you?
Perhaps the most consistent reminder of God’s majesty is the beauty of His creation. Mountains, water, animals and heavenly bodies all proclaim the praises of their Creator. Even if you have noticed these things, have you ever thought about why God bothered to make our world so beautiful? And what is our responsibility as a result? Read today's verses from Psalm 8 on YouVersion or in one of the Bibles we provide.
Whose words influence you the most and can they be trusted? Read today's verses from Psalm 12 on YouVersion or in one of the Bibles we provide.
We password-protect our computers, lock our homes, alarm our cars, put up security cameras and even carry guns, all for the purpose of protecting ourselves. All of that means one thing: we often count on ourselves for our own security. But is that really the best protection? Read today's verses from Psalm 16 on YouVersion or on page 374 in the Bibles we provide.
God is always faithful, but he's not often fast. No matter how long you've been crying out to God, rest assured that God is present and leading you toward a resolution. Read today's verses from Psalm 18 on YouVersion or on page 374 in the Bibles we provide.
Everyone loves a success story, and many of us have them. Even if we are not a tech billionaire or corporate titan, everyone can point to at least a few areas of life where they excel. But when we do succeed, who really deserves all the credit? Read today's verses from Psalm 21 on YouVersion or on page 376 in the Bibles we provide.
Most of us have experienced the crushing weight of a personal crisis, only to be left wondering, “Is God even there, or am I on my own?” Psalm 22 provides an intimate look at someone grappling with the suspicion that they have been abandoned by God. Read today's verses from Psalm 22 on YouVersion or on page 377 in the Bibles we provide.
Psalm 23 is one of the most well-known prayers in the Bible, but have we become inoculated to its meaning? Join us at 9:30 and 11 a.m. to take a fresh look at a picture of God surrounding his people in all of life's circumstances. Read today's verses from Psalm 23 on YouVersion or on page 377 in one of the Bibles we provide.
You have a secret. There is a skeleton in your closet. What if you didn’t have to hide anymore? What if everything you are covering up could be wiped clean? Read today's verses from Psalm 32 on YouVersion or in one of the Bibles we provide.
Since God is forgiving and gracious, we might think that the Psalms would always tell us to do the same. But it doesn't. In fact, there's an entire group of Psalms that serve one purpose: to call down destruction and judgement on our enemies. What do we do with something like that? Read today's verses from Psalm 109 on YouVersion or on page 417 in the Bibles we provide.
The end of summer is always a little bittersweet. Join us at 9:30 and 11 a.m. as we say good bye to Summer in the Psalms and celebrate the God who knows us completely. Read today's verses from Psalm 139 on YouVersion or on page 428 in one of the Bibles we provide.

Today, we'll celebrate Father's Day together by diving into Psalm 91 and asking, "What's really in a name?"
When King David hit rock bottom, he didn't justify, blame or bury himself in denial. Psalm 51 shows us that he pled for mercy. Today, we will look at his desperate cry and find our own need hidden in this powerful psalm.
When faced with a tough decision or circumstance, what is your initial response? Life is a series of peaks and valleys and how we face them will greatly reveal who we are.
Our little East Lakers have been hard at work memorizing Psalm 100 for several weeks! Join us for a special family service as we unpack the lessons for our lives from this song of praise.
The Bible calls us to love God, but it’s hard to understand how to love someone we can’t see. Psalm 145 was written from the heart of a man who was truly and deeply in love with God, and it serves as a road map for our own hearts to emulate.
There is a secret to going through hard times, and Psalm 85 gives us a blueprint for doing it well.
Where was God when _______________________? In Psalm 124, David looks in the rear view mirror and recognizes that God was on His side.
Remember when you were young how you would call out to your parents or older siblings whenever you felt threatened or were hurting? As an adult, who is your go-to? Who do you call when debt, work, relationships, or health issues overwhelm you?
When God seems most distant, is often when He is closest. David learned this lesson throughout his life and Psalm 13 is a glimpse into his personal lament along with the great hope he found in God.
