Worship: Leaders Panel
This last Sunday we held a panel with some of our Saints’ Hill worship leaders. These are people who don’t necessarily get to teach on a regular basis, but are wells of wisdom and intimacy with Jesus. It was such an encouraging time to hear what’s inside of each of these huge people. We talked about the heart of worship, testimonies, calling, lordship and so much more!
Worship: The Heart of Worship
This last Sunday our worship pastor Jake Vigil spoke to us about the Heart of Worship. We see all the way back in Genesis that worship is about sacrifice. For us to be a house of His Presence our worship must cost us something. What makes our worship powerful is not the form or expression that it takes…power is found in the purity of His Presence. Jesus always protects extravagant worship, even when it offends the religious. Worship was never meant to become an industry, it has always been about lovers denying themselves and giving the world a taste of heaven through their sacrifice of praise. May we forever remain lovers instead of performers.
Worship: Why build a church around worship?
This last Sunday Alex Rettmann talked to us about why we built a church around worship. We planted a church to minister to Him. Our vision for impact in Newberg is worship. When we worship we align ourselves with what’s happening in heaven. It takes us from slaves to priests. The truth about God expressed in our worship renews our minds - and a renewed people is what renews a place. That’s why we worship.
Worship: Guest Kenny Snyder
This last Sunday we had the privilege of hosting one of our dear friends - Kenny Snyder. Someone who lives a lifestyle of worship and has been pioneering revival in our town for a long time. Kenny talked about worship as transformation. True worship should take us where we need to go and not just where we want to go. If we want to walk in this worship that transforms we must lay down our entitlements and our preferences. In heaven, there won’t be any question whether or not we worship Him. Our intentional sacrifice of worship on this side of heaven moves His heart, and makes the enemy shrink back. To worship Him is to give your life to Him. We pray that you are strengthened by the Holy Spirit this week to worship Him in everything
Pure in Heart
This last Sunday Bria Wolter brought us a word on biblical purity. These were some key takeaways: Purity is a person - His name is Jesus. Purity is given to you and received by you - His sacrifice made us clean. Purity is an action - the world is desperate for the hope we have. We’ve seen His face and we have an answer. May our purity be less about what we’re staying away from, and more about who we’re drawing near to. Holiness exposes impurity as an invitation to greater intimacy with our King. All of us is for all of Him.
Greatest of All
Andoni gave a teaching on two things that we should never grow out of - growing and serving. Growing in our child-like ability to receive from our Father, and serving the way Jesus came to serve us. In the kingdom, we go low to go high. May we be a people who never stop growing and serving!
A Heart that Forgives
This last Sunday one of our elders, Jim Traut, talked to us about forgiveness. According to the Scriptures, forgiveness is not optional…A family of believers that does forgiveness well, looks like the kingdom of heaven. Unforgiveness can hold you hostage, but forgiving sets you free. When you forgive, you are giving up what you think is your right to get even. When we are compelled by the great debt that Jesus paid on our behalf, forgiveness will come much easier.
Guard Your Heart
This last Sunday we heard from Jake Vigil a fresh take on what it means to guard your heart. His showed us that there is a difference between guarding your heart from something out of fear, and guarding your heart for something out of love. That something we want to protect is covenant. Here are four practical ways to protect your covenant: Testimonies Meditate on His Scriptures Say no to lies and fear Stay motivated by your marriage - When we live out of covenant love, jealousy, bitterness, disappointment, and fear are all crushed. We are truly free to see the fruit of the kingdom in our lives. Blessings!!
House of Acts: Lose your life
This last Sunday, we wrapped up our House of Acts Series. -- Paul’s life message: lose your life, only then will you find it. Paul lived so much because he died so much. If you live for yourself, you will never actually enjoy your life. You’ll be too busy trying to control it. It is only when we give our lives up completely to be used by Him, that we find true fulfillment, purpose, and peace. BLESSINGS! and thanks for listening!!
House of Acts: Faith Reveals the Kingdom
This last Sunday Alex taught through some of Acts 27-28 where Paul puts on display what it looks like to live a life of resurrection power. When you have the same Spirit that rose Jesus from the dead alive in you, your faith becomes the roads people without faith travel into the kingdom of God. - We were designed for overflow. Our circumstances don’t have the final say in what we have to offer. We don’t have to live in self preservation because death is not our greatest fear. Blessings!
Easter Sunday: Why you need Resurrection to be true
This last Sunday we continued in our House of Acts series as Alex narrowed the three reasons why we need the Resurrection to be true: We need atonement. There’s a cost to the way that we live. The problem of self-righteousness. Your judgement on others actually puts you in chains. You need a life without fear. Putting your faith in this Jesus who embraced death on your behalf will set you free from fear. - If this resurrection is true, it’s the solution to all the problems of humanity. No other solution humbles you, makes you more forgiving and loving, gives you courage in the face of death, and promises life forever with God and loved ones. Blessings! He is RISEN!
House of Acts: What scared Felix?
This last Sunday Alex Rettmann taught from Acts chapter 24, where we find Paul discussing three things with Felix, the governor: righteousness, self control, and the judgement to come. Alex reasoned with us from the Scriptures how these three things are what the gospel of Jesus is really about, and why it is so offensive. Praying The Fear of The Lord over you this season! Blessings & We love you!! Thanks for listening
House of Acts: What's on Saints Hill's Conscience?
This last Sunday, Alex Rettmann taught us through the beginning of Acts 23, which begins with Paul stating before the council, “I have lived my life before God in all good conscience up to this day.” (v1) For Saints’ Hill to live in good conscience, we will: Be centered on gratitude. Value the building of family over efficiency. Leave a legacy of faith, hope and love. - Blessings!
House of Acts: Stewarding the Holy
On Sunday we had the distinct privilege of hearing from our very own Bria Wolter. She brought us an incredibly sharp word from Acts 212-22, asking the question: what does it look like to be a stewarding church? God is moving in remarkable ways in our family, how can we steward all that He is entrusting us with? Identity. Going to the Father for vision over your life, a vision that will guide you in all discernment as you go. Good interpretation of the prophetic. We interpret the prophetic in relationship with our Creator, equipped with truth from the Scriptures, and secure in our God-given identity. Saints' Hill, may we be a people who think with His thoughts, keep our eyes set on Jesus, stay wary of the crowd, and choose obedience no matter what lies ahead of us.
House of Acts: Eternity in our mind
This last Sunday we had the privilege of hearing from one of our elders, Andoni Montaño. - Andoni reminded us that we prophesy with eternity in our minds - our job is to prophesy the answer, not the problem. The Holy Spirit may reveal to you what the enemy is doing in a situation, but only for the purpose of highlighting how God intends to bring victory to it. Our prophetic answer is always the person of Jesus. Be encouraged today! Blessings!
House of Acts: 4 signs of a good leader
This last Sunday Jacob Vigil taught us through the beginning of Acts 20. From this text we observe these four markers of a good leader: Good leaders are encouragers who love to give encouragement Good leaders have good friends & mission-led friendships. Good leaders understand that Jesus is their sabbath. Good leaders stay spiritually awake. - May we bring these truths before the Lord and let His presence empower us to become better leaders!
House of Acts: This is what revival looks like
This week Alex Rettmann shares with us out of Acts 19. - What is revival? And, what are the signs of revival taking place? To have revival, means that people are being revived back to life! The signs are people rejecting religion, choosing relationship/lordship, and continually being baptized by the Holy Spirit. - We want the more of God! We want to experience His glory in much deeper ways, so may we have hearts that stay faithful to Jesus and open to the unusual! Blessings!
A House of Giants: What does it mean to be apart of Saints’ Hill?
This Sunday, Alex Rettmann proposed these 2 questions: What does it mean to be a part of Saints Hill Church? & What sustains family revival? Being a part of Saints Hill looks like “being a big person” - Someone that fully lives out the Finished Work of The Cross and applies Jesus’ blood over every aspect of life. Where we lack nothing and can walk out, what Alex shared is the “in and out” lifestyle. Where we live to be “in” the presence of God and carry that “out” to our community/families. - One practical way we see family revival sustained is through biblical confrontation. This takes us walking in humility and purity. We pray that your spirit is encouraged and equipped by truth!
Ordinary people, Extraordinary results
This Sunday we had the privilege of hearing from a Father/Elder of the house; Jim Traut! Jim picked back up in our current series through the book of Acts. The Lord put six different action points/truths on Jim's heart to share with us; out of Acts 18. 1. There is power in the name of Jesus! 2. There is power in the simplicity of The Gospel 3. God begins at dead ends. Strength in our weakness 4. Your occupation is your ordination - Your mission 5. Know the truth and Speak it! 6. Fathers and Mothers stand up - Praying blessings, courage as you are Fathered again by our God.
Freedom with Money
"For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." - Matthew 6:21 The Lord has created you for freedom! It is a gift found through the life of Jesus and His teachings. We find in the NT one of Jesus' most talked about topics was treasure (money). Therefore, as believers we must grow in wisdom on how to best steward the raw material that the Lord has entrusted us with. This Sunday, Alex Rettmann opens up the scriptures and talks to our family about Money, and how we were meant to be free! We are called to rule over money, and not have money rule over us. Blessings and peace over you! Thanks for listening.
