Legacy Church

Living Up to Our Name: Frederick Douglass

Frederick Douglass lived in 19th century America, born a slave with a drive to be free that saw him greatly impact the nation. Yet his experience with Christians filled him with bitterness. Douglass challenged the church just as Jesus challenged the religious leaders of his day to face their hypocrisy. Brandon explores the call to pursue righteousness with truth and grace.

A Night of Fire: Blaise Pascal

Pascal was a genius, from mathematics to theology, inventing mass transportation to the modern-day syringe. Yet his faith in Jesus meant the most to him. Andy explores Pascal’s life and its impact for us today.

Teresa of Avila: A Very Irregular Saint

Teresa never hid her humanness, with God or with other people. She was brutally honest in prayer and that honesty allowed her to grow deeply in faith. Don explores Teresa’s life and the lessons we can learn to grow closer to Jesus today.

Defined by Generosity

Some people live by the motto: look out for number one. Jesus challenges us to live differently, to give up our own way, and to care deeply for others. Brandon explores how God created each one of us to be defined by generosity, as individuals and as a community of faith

Wisdom & Finance

The prodigal son spent everything and more that came into his hand and ended up destitute on the street. Yet his father welcomed him back with open arms, running to him.

Cultivating Contentment

We regularly breathe in the air of constant economic dissatisfaction, never feeling like we have enough. Brandon explores how we can build contentment in our lives as we discover what we truly love.

Growing Old, Sickness and Death

Everyone, at one point or another, fears death. Don explores Jesus’ hope-filled words that he is the resurrection and the life; everyone who believes in Christ, even though they die, they will yet live. Those words allow us to live lives unafraid today.

Failure

The number one fear of those under 50 is failure, whether at jobs or relationships or family or missed opportunities. Brandon explores the life of Moses and how God equips us to take healthy risks, to experience meaning and hope and life beyond anything we ever could have imagined.

Friendless and Alone

Researchers talk about an epidemic of loneliness in the US and UK today. And the Internet, smartphones and television only make us more lonely. Brandon explores how God designed us for community with each other and a relationship with Christ to address our fear of loneliness.

Fear of the Other

There are people in our lives that don’t come from our backgrounds and can be hard to understand; they are the others. Brandon explores Jesus’ challenging call to treat everyone as our neighbors, to love and to understand all, including the others we encounter.
