What do you do when God answers your prayer in a way that you did not expect or even desire?
When God told Habakkuk in chapter 1 how He was going to raise up the Chaldeans to capture Israel, Habakkuk was devastated. He could not reconcile God's actions with God's character. Have you ever been there? Have you been in situations where you knew God could have intervened or changed His mind, but He didn't?
In Pt. 2 of our study on Habakkuk, Pastor Chad walks us through how Habakkuk responded to God in a sermon called, "Watching & Waiting."

Habakkuk is an Old Testament Prophet, whose name means, "To Embrace." The Book of Habakkuk teaches us how to embrace the Sovereignty and wisdom of God.
Habakkuk is a comforting book because it is a dialogue between God and man. Habakkuk has complaints against the Lord and he asks God hard questions. Questions that most of us ask along the road to spiritual maturity.
Habakkuk asks the Lord how He can be just yet allow injustice? How can he be silent when Habakkuk is crying out to Him? How can God have pure eyes yet look at evil?
These are questions people are still asking today and we find the answers in the 3 short chapters of Habakkuk.
It is a special book and we are glad you are beginning this journey with us in Habakkuk 1 entitled, "Wonder & Worry."

In Week 3 of Thankful, we discuss how a Christian can be thankful in any situation life gives us. "Give Thanks" is the third command in a chain of life-changing, personality-altering commands Paul gives to believers.
Pastor Chad walks us through the natural progression of the commands. If we learn to rejoice always and we can understand what it means to pray without ceasing, then gratitude is going to flow out of our hearts and lives.

When the Bible says, "Rejoice Always" and "Pray Continually", those are actually commands, not suggestions. But is it really possible to fulfill these commands?
In Week 2 of Thankful, Pastor Chad examines 1 Thessalonians 5:16-17 and answers the questions of how do we rejoice in every circumstance and how to do we live in a constant state of prayer? It is possible because we have the help of the Holy Spirit!

Rick Keller speaks in week one of a new series called, Thankful. His topic is worship. For churches like PCC, it is easy for worship to become entertainment driven, but that is not Biblical worship. Listen carefully as Rick teaches from the Bible on how to discover what worship looks like.

When the men of 2 Kings 6 lost a borrowed axe head, it halted the work they were doing. Their progress had to stop.
The man of God, Elisha, asked them, "where did it fall?" When they showed him, he threw a stick in the Jordan River and that act of obedience caused the iron axe head to float.
In this sermon, Pastor Chad challenges us with the same question, "Where did you lose it?" Where did your spiritual growth stop? Where did your growth come to a halt? He then shows us how obedience can cause God to begin to work in our lives again. We hope you find this sermon encouraging in your walk with Christ.

1 Samuel 7 is a fascinating chapter. Samuel has led Israel back to the Lord and while they are gathered at Mizpah, praying and fasting, their enemies, the Philistines, heard they had gathered and came to attack them. Rather than running, Israel prayed all the more and cried out to the Lord. The Bible says in 1 Samuel 7 that God brought a supernatural victory for Israel that day.
In week 3 of Burning in my Soul, Pastor Chad shows how Satan will attack our lives when we get serious about God. When those times, just like Israel, we are not to run or hide. We are to gather and pray all the more.

In week 3 of City On A Hill, Pastor Chad explores Mark 10 in the story of Blind Bartimaeus. When he began to cry out for Jesus, the crowd tried to silence him. Mark records that he cried out all the more! When Jesus called for him and restored his eye sight, He told Bartimaeus to go his way, but Mark says, that Bartimaeus followed Jesus along the way!
Pastor Chad explains how we cannot worry what others think about us...even when people try to silence our faith or our hope in God. When the Lord touches our life, we learn from Blind Bartimaeus how we should follow Christ and not go our own way. Many Christians today, even though God has changed their lives, are following their own way, their own ambitions and desires in life, rather than following Jesus.

PCC hosts the 3rd Annual Rise Together, a community Sunday. This year's focus was on providing gas cards for local families battling cancer. Our Scripture was Psalm 24, when King David asked, "Who can ascend the hill of the Lord?" and "Who is this King of Glory?" We answer those questions by showing it was the beautiful work of Jesus Christ. He is the King of the Glory, the Lord strong and mighty! He alone can ascend the hill of the Lord and when you and I are in Christ, we share in His work. We share in His accomplishments.
in other words, you and I cannot approach God on our own. We cannot be good enough. We must have the grace of God and His salvation in our lives.
