    Parables-The Lamp
    We are truly the light of the world. You've probably heard it said that "you are the only Bible some people will ever read."  Most people come to the Lord because of a person who allows the light of Jesus to shine through them.  The Parable of the Lamp reminds us to let that light shine.

    Parables-The Pharisee and the Tax Collector
    A critical spirit, comparison, and ingratitude usually accompany pride, and pride always comes before a fall.  Melanie Bertoglio uses the parable of the Parisee and the Tax Collector to show us the difference in the outcomes of the prayer of the humble versus the prayer of the prideful.

    Parables -The Sower
    Parables were a means that Jesus used to convey his message. Parables are an earthly story with a heavenly meaning. It's God's desire that we would understand the meaning of the parables. The Parable of the Sower, found in Mark chapter four is foundational. It teaches us how to receive the Word in all of the other parables. Ultimately, in the Parable of the Sower, we find that it all comes down to two types of soil...Soil that produces fruit and soil that doesn't. The seed is good, but it is dependent on the soil, to determine whether it will bring forth fruit. As we apply this parable of Jesus to our lives, we may examine ourselves to see if our heart is soil that produces.

    Honor Your Mother
    It is important to honor your mother. Ephesians 6 references honoring your father and mother. True honor is born out of a heart surrendered to God. Pastor Ashley gave four reasons for honoring our mothers: 1. Because it is right 2. Because it is scriptural 3. So it may be well with you 4. Obedience and honor lead to living a full and long life.

    Destroying Strongholds
    2 Corinthians 10: 3 tells us that the weapons we have as Christians are mighty in God for the complete destruction of strongholds. Strongholds are unholy filters through which our thoughts pass that are based on satanic lies, generational mindsets, and human woundings. But praise be to God that He has given us the weaponry needed to attack the enemy behind those strongholds and eradicate them from our lives.

    Essential : True Worship Part 2
    In the second part of her True Worship message, Melanie Bertoglio takes us deeper into our motives behind our worship. Melanie talks about how true worship is essential to the body of Christ, just as much as any other part that we are obedient to. However, we must constantly check ourselves to make sure that our worship is truly for God, because if we are getting caught up in the things surrounding our worship more than who we are worshipping, we cant get caught up "doing Christian things" the devil's way.

    Essential : True Worship Part 1
    Does He get your praise? In a culture of personalization, likes and dislikes, Melanie Bertoglio asks this pertinent question boldly to the church. Do we spend more time criticizing the atmosphere around our worship time, than actually in the presence of God? Melanie draws out of scripture that we are called to worship God, and He deserves our praise. Rebelling against this, lines us up with the Deceiver, Lucifer, who sought to steal the honor and praise that only belongs to God.

    Apply The Blood Feast On The Lamb Part Two
    In the second part of her Apply The Blood Feast On The Lamb, Melanie focuses on what it means to "Feast on the Lamb". The partaking of the lamb goes beyond an outward act, into an inward representation of Christ and what He does within us. The Lamb purifies us, and we can not truly experience the power of God without this important concept of "feasting" on the Lamb.

    In Melanie's message, Apply the Blood Feast on the Lamb, Melanie reminds us of the significance of the Blood. The Blood makes a way for us in our lives that no other thing, person, or institution can. It's from that knowledge that we can have true peace.

    Tell the Story
    Psalm 78 says that it is important that we teach the stories "we have heard and known" to our children so that they will know about the "glorious deeds of the Lord." Melanie Bertoglio teaches us from this passage why it is important to pass down the stories of those we read about in the Bible..."so each generation should set its hope anew on God, not forgetting his glorious miracles and obeying his commands."

    Melanie Bertoglio finishes this two-part message by reminding us that we are to love every aspect of God's character. He is loving, merciful, and forgiving; but He is also holy, righteous, and just. We are instructed to live in the "fear of God," and the evidence of that is obedience.

    Prepare the Dwelling Place Part 3
    In Part 3 of the series, "Prepare the Dwelling Place," Melanie Bertoglio teaches us that worship is our response to who God is and what He has done in our lives.Worship does not have to be music and singing; however, God created music, He enjoys it, and He responds to it. If we want to prepare the place for God to inhabit in our lives, we will sing His praises.

    Prepare the Dwelling Place Part 2
    Psalm 22 states that God is enthroned upon the praises of Israel.Because we are now His people, this means that God is enthroned upon our praises. This means that His presence is made manifest when we praise Him. This presence is different that His indwelling presence or His omnipresence. God's manifest presence is experienced and brings transformation in us and/or circumstances.

    Prepare the Dwelling Place
    From Exodus Chapter 40, Melanie Bertoglio  teaches us about the construction and layout of the tabernacle, the dwelling place of God in the Old Testament. As New Testament believers, each member of the Body of Christ is individually the dwelling place. It is important that we take great care, just as the Israelites did, in preparing our dwelling place in order to achieve intimacy with God.

    Confidence and Courage
    In our desire to produce self-confidence, we have created a culture of arrogance. We often think that we need more confidence when we really need courage. Courage is a byproduct of faith and confidence in God, not ourselves. In this sermon, Melanie Bertoglio uses a great example to show us the importance of trusting in God to overcome our "giants."

    Time: A Great Exchange?
    As Christians, does it matter what we do with our time here on earth since we know heaven is our destiny? Actually, what we do now matters, and Melanie shows us why it is important to God that we exchange our time in this life for things that will remain.
