Posted by Tyler Cadwell on

Hey everyone! There was an awesome group of sixth graders at VBX last week and we had a ton of fun playing games and learning about the fruit of the Spirit. We are so excited to welcome them into student ministry! The middle team is pumped for this summer and all the fun events coming up!...

The Middle: One another retreat On September 26-28 we took 38 of our students and leaders to camp Iliana for a retreat. Friday night we got there ate some pizza, played some games and then went into session to talk about the theme. Session one: We talked about love one another. We discussed how...

Living in Love

Posted by Tyler Cadwell on

1 John 4 Love - what a misunderstood word these days. Many people understand love as a romantic feeling; others understand it as something in friendship. Both of these can be true, but love is much more than that. Love still loves when it is hated. Love still loves when it is wronged. Love...

Jesus: The Superhero We All Want!

Posted by Tyler Cadwell on

Hebrews 1 & 2 There are a lot of super hero movies coming out these days:  Batman, Superman, Captain America, and Spiderman just to name a few. We can see the story of Jesus in these movies. There is a crisis, a problem and one of these characters will come to save the day. And in many...

Pray Outwardly

Posted by Tyler Cadwell on

2 Thessalonians 3:1-5 This message is so relevant to us today, and really gives us three really good insights into prayer. One: We can pray that the message of the Lord may spread rapidly, and be honored. I don’t know about you, but it has been a while that I prayed anything like that...

Posted by Tyler Cadwell on

2 Corinthians 4&5 We are not here to preach ourselves, or to make ourselves bigger and better than others. We are here to be servants of Christ, dying to ourselves and letting Jesus shine through. In 2 Corinthians 4:10, the NET version puts it best: “We always carry around in our body...

John 14 & 15

Posted by Tyler Cadwell on

John 14: In a way this passage reminds me of Abbot and Costello’s old comedy sketch “who’s on first” Abbot is trying to explain the weird names of the baseball players and it does nothing but confuse Costello. Jesus probably felt a little like Abbot. He was trying to...

Sermon on the Mount

Posted by Tyler Cadwell on

Matthew 5-7 All the people knew. Or at least they thought they knew. As Jesus began to speak, it started to turn their understanding upside-down. The disciples gathered round while the crowds just tried to overhear the teaching. Many times we are like the disciples and the crowds, we think we...

Boldness and Trust

Posted by Tyler Cadwell on

Jeremiah 26 The Lord tells Jeremiah to speak to the people of Judah and tell them that their ways of idolatry will not be tolerated any longer. God is giving them the opportunity to change their ways, to turn back to Him before He makes this city "...like Shiloh or an object of cursing among the...
