    The Grace to Rebuild and Restore
    Pastor Melanie Bertoglio shares from Nehemiah chapter 1, teaching on the process of rebuilding and restoring after destruction. Nehemiah led the effort of rebuilding the wall around Jerusalem after the Babylonian captivity. There are times in our lives where we are seemingly surrounded by rubble and just as Nehemiah, we can use what is left and rebuild and find the restoration that God has available for us.

    The Laws of the Kingdom:The Law of Unity
    Pastor Melanie Bertoglio continues teaching on the Laws of the Kingdom, focusing on the Law of Unity. From the beginning of creation we see Father, Son, and Holy Spirit working together in unity. As God's people, we should also be living in unity.  Before we can experience the power of unity with others, we must first have an inner unity, which is found when  our minds are in agreement with the God who dwells in us.

    The Laws of the Kingdom:The Law of Responsibility
    Pastor Melanie Bertoglio continues "The Laws of the kingdom" series, teaching on "The Law of Responsibility".  We can see this law at work in Matthew 25 in the Parable of the Three Servants. Too many people want the favor of God in their lives, desiring greater blessings, but failing to realize that it is accompanied with greater responsibility. This law illustrates that if you want more blessing, you must accept the responsibility that comes along with it.

    Sermon on the Mount: Lust, Adultery and Divorce
    Pastor Melanie Bertoglio breaks down Matthew 5:27-32 to show us the progression of cultivated lust in our hearts. Adultery results from lusting after someone or something that isn't yours. God understands this because Israel committed adultery by repeatedly turning to other gods. Eventually, God issued a certificate of divorce to Israel and great destruction followed. But God's heart was always to be reconciled with Israel, just as His heart is for husbands and wives to remain committed and to be reconciled to each other.

    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.

    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.
