“The List”- Week 1

The List: “What We Need To Know” – Wade Morris

Seventy-five percent of college students who grew up in church will never go back to church by the time they graduate.  Somewhere in this statistic there is a disconnect. For many that disconnect lies between what we do and what we believe. We may say we have a relationship with God, but what do we believe about Him? We may read the Bible on occasion, but what do we believe about it? When difficulties, discontentment, or inconvenience come what we really believe about something ultimately determines what we do about it!

“Stories Matter”- Week 4

Stories Matter – “Joseph’s Highs and Lows” – Duane Mixon

Joseph lived a life that was a lot like ours. His life wasn’t all good and it wasn’t all bad. It was full of ups and downs, highs and lows. And like a lot of us Joseph’s story didn’t exactly turn out the way he thought it would. The thing about Joseph is that in the good and the bad he consistently paid attention to God. Through it all he continued to lean into God, looking at his own life through the lens of what God was doing. The truth is that God is present and that He is always working in both the ups and downs of our lives too. It’s up to us to pay attention, to learn, and to believe that even what others mean for evil, God purposes for good!

“Stories Matter”- Week 3

Stories Matter – “David’s Heart” – Katie Ridd

David’s life reads like the pages of a fairy-tale. He was the shepherd boy turned giant slayer, who became a great warrior and eventually a mighty king! David was chosen by God and he was called to a great purpose…but David wasn’t perfect. And it was in a place of great imperfection that we see David’s heart. It was there that David had the courage to let God into the broken pieces of his story so that God could do, what only God can do…heal, restore, and redeem! God doesn’t just want our goodness, He wants our brokenness too.

“Stories Matter”- Week 2

Stories Matter – “The Path Solomon Chose” – Stuart Hall

Solomon was described as the wisest man to ever live, he was the son of King David, rich beyond belief, and leader of a great nation. Everything was seemingly in Solomon’s favor, yet his life slid away from where it once had been.  As Solomon got older he turned away from God and gave his heart to other things.  He didn’t just wind up in this place, nor do we just suddenly find ourselves in places far from God…we end up there because at some point it’s the path we chose. What path have you chosen and where it does it lead?

“Stories Matter”- Week 1

Stories Matter – “Peter’s Life Change” – Joey Todd

Peter was a disciple of Jesus, of all the disciples he may have even been the closest to Jesus. He had a front row seat to all the miracles and incredible things that Jesus did. Yet at a point of difficulty Peter let fear dominate, and he stepped back from even being associated with Him. But after an amazing encounter with Jesus…it all changed!

OVF Fall Kickoff 2015- “More Like Jesus”

Overflow Fall Kickoff – “More Like Jesus” – Clay Everett

“The biggest influence in your life will have the biggest impact on your life.” If this statement is true, then need to ask ourselves, “what is the biggest influencer in my life?” God’s Word tells us that we should increasingly become more like Jesus. As we begin a new semester we want to encourage, challenge, even plead with you as college students to open up your life more to Jesus. Allow Him be the biggest influence in your life, and see what He will do in and through you this year!

OVF Summer- “Hope Of Glory”

Overflow Summer – “Hope Of Glory” – Courtney Everett

Every single one of us has hope. And for the most part we hope for things that we don’t yet have. We hope for a good grade on our next exam, a new girlfriend, or a better boyfriend. But here is the beauty of the gospel… in Christ we have been given a hope that is ours already. Our hope is that we belong to God through faith in Christ… we belong to Him now and will fully realize that one day when we come face to face with Him!

OVF Summer- “Learning To Love”

Overflow Summer – “Learning To Love” – Zack Hamby

Love is one of the most fundamental aspects of our existence and at the very core of who God is. The truth is we all desire to be loved! Yet we struggle with love, and the problem is that we are scared of intimacy. We are scared to be deeply known. But in order to love and be loved we must know and be known! The only question is, are we willing to be vulnerable with others and with God in order to experience what we so desperately desire?

OVF Summer- “Firm Faith”

Overflow Summer – “Firm Faith” – Clay Everett

God desires us to not only begin a relationship with Him by faith, but to live our entire lives by faith and not just an abstract, wishful thinking, trying hard to believe kind of faith…but a firm faith. A faith that is stable, steadfast, and established! This kind of faith must rest on something solid. The question is what is that solid place and how do we get there?

Night Of Worship – Spring ’15

We spent the last Tuesday Night of the ’14-’15 school year simply worshiping God together- praising God for who He is and for what He has done in our lives! It was an amazing night and incredible way to end the year!
