I’m sure that you have had at least 1 experience where a church let you down in some way - may have been a church you belonged to as a child, or a church you were part of before coming to WP, or this church – these pastors and people - have disappointed you.

Key Text: Matthew 6:5-8; 16-18
I’m going to start today with a simple question; how would you rate your devotion to God? In other words, out of 10 would you say that you are very devoted or do you need some work, or are you not devoted at all?
I guess most of us would maybe hover around 5-8. Right? Maybe you are a 10 maybe you are a 1. No one is judging here; and hopefully we will talk through this morning the key element in an active

Glorifying Him 3. He is More
Key Text: Philippians 3:1-11
Has it ever struck you that we live in a world where the large majority of us have made an entire page dedicated to us; filled with what we do for the sole reason of people liking that! We live in a world where narcissism isn't weird it's the norm.
Hopefully tonight we will address the reality that we were not made for our own glory but rather for the glory of another. And in fact the more we indu

TWO ESSENTIAL TIPS FOR ENJOYING 2017 Good morning everyone. It’s a pleasure to be able to share with you today, at the beginning of a new year. It’s funny how we measure ourselves by time hurdles – chronological markers. Like do you ever feel Mondays are the hardest in the week? Some people say, “I’m a better person on Tuesdays – once I’ve gotten back into the swing of things.” You’re not a better person on Tuesdays – you’re the same person as you were on Monday – you’re a gr

Welcome to a New Year of evening services. As we start up the Evening services again I want us to focus on the most important thing we can: Glorifying God.
This whole topic can be lost in a loveless language of legal demands, religious expositions and heartless declarations: I hope I do not do that!
