Easter

He is risen! On Sunday, April 16, 2017, Pastor Bobby and our congregation rejoiced in the wonders of bringing things back to life by faith. Easter is the anchor of hope for every believer, and on Easter of all days, we are called to abandon our fear of death. We are reminded of how much joy has been made available to us, since heaven has opened. You belong, you have a family, come home.

Palm Sunday

On Palm Sunday, April 9, 2017, Pastor Bobby focuses his message on courage. Being a human being requires an extraordinary amount of courage, and all it takes for you to conquer your fears is one small step. The will to make that one single step in the direction whatever you are afraid of is purely living a life for God. Bobby encourages us not to allow fear to dictate our lives, because fear cannot take away the one thing that all of us have: choice.

Chapter 13: Your Secret Life Matters Most

Pastor Bobby Schuller continues his series “The Narrow Road: How To Be Alive” with the message “Your Secret Life Matters Most” at Shepherd’s Grove on Sunday March 26, 2017.

In this message, Bobby advises us to manifest vulnerability as a quiet, dignified strength. Within this theme, Bobby also differentiates humility and shame, to encourage us not to confuse one for the other. There is tremendous strength in being rooted in humility and being at peace with your imperfections. You have value. So make a commitment to abandon your shame and be vulnerable with your life.

Chapter 12: Gratitude and Joy

Pastor Bobby Schuller continues his series “The Narrow Road: How To Be Alive” with the message “Gratitude and Joy” at Shepherd’s Grove on Sunday March 19, 2017.

In this message, Bobby reminds us that a grateful heart is a magnet for miracles. By viewing each hurdle and obstacle as a blessing, you will be able to look at your life in an entirely new light. Rather than looking upon your past with regret, learn to accept each decision as a part of what makes you strengthened in the present. Because the more grateful you are, the better the future you’re preparing for yourself.

Chapter 11: Sufficiency and Generosity

Pastor Bobby Schuller continues his series “The Narrow Road: How To Be Alive” with the message “Sufficiency and Generosity” at Shepherd’s Grove on Sunday March 12, 2017.

This week, Bobby encourages us to be generous. Generosity practiced in faith can cause anyone to feel wealthy. Do you need an opportunity in life? Transcend your problems and help others succeed. When following God, wealth is not simply defined by monetary gains. Rather it can be measured by wisdom, knowledge, character, and benevolence. Give something away to someone in need, so that you can hear the Lord say to you, “come follow me.”

Chapter 10: Don’t Worry-It Will Be Okay

Pastor Bobby Schuller continues his series “The Narrow Road: How To Be Alive” with the message “Don’t Worry-It Will Be Okay” at Shepherd’s Grove on Sunday March 5, 2017.

It’s easy to become swept up in the anxieties of our every day, but Bobby reminds us this week to slow down, let our anxieties go, and give them to God. Training your eyes to see what’s good, and not dwelling on the negative things that may happen can be tricky. But simply by walking in the strength of faith, anything is possible. Life is too beautiful to worry about the little things. Let go, trust, and live in the easy rhythms of grace. That is a good life.

Chapter 9: Let Your Yes Be Yes, and Your No, No

Pastor Bobby Schuller continues his series “The Narrow Road: How To Be Alive” with the message “Let Your Yes Be Yes, and Your No, No” at Shepherd’s Grove on Sunday February 26, 2017.

In this message, Bobby accentuates the importance of honesty and vulnerability by explaining the power of the words “yes” and “no”. As human beings, it is not realistic for us to say yes to everything. By saying yes when you mean no, and no when you mean yes, you are lying to yourself and those around you. The reason we lie is because we’re not at peace with the truth. Even if it hurts people, in the long run, the truth is always the best choice. For you, and for God.

Chapter 8: Be the Real You, You Don’t Have to Prove Anything

Pastor Bobby Schuller continues his series “The Narrow Road: How To Be Alive” with the message “Be the Real You, You Don’t Have to Prove Anything” at Shepherd’s Grove on Sunday February 19, 2017.

This week Bobby reassures us that, whatever we do, when we do something out of love rather than fear, it will be blessed by God. Allowing ourselves to be vulnerable and open might be difficult, but by doing so out of love, nothing but joy will result from such actions. You don’t have to pretend to be someone you’re not simply because you’re craving acceptance. The most honest acceptance stems from being your true, whole self. You are loved!

Chapter 7: Of Course You’re Angry, but Let it Go.

Pastor Bobby Schuller continues his series “The Narrow Road: How To Be Alive” with the message “Of Course You’re Angry, but Let it Go” at Shepherd’s Grove on Sunday February 12, 2017.

In this message, Bobby takes a moment to address an emotion that has the immediate ability to completely consume us: anger. Like pain, anger means that something is wrong. But how do we best approach this emotion?

It is not anger that brings sin upon us. Rather, it is the words we say while we are trapped in this negative mindset; we cannot get them back once said aloud. Because of the impact of our words, we are encouraged to use our words more constructively. Speak the truth, and speak it kindly.
