Faith That Walks With God; Enoch

Reid Olson

9/17/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Enoch. Genesis 5 gives a genealogy of those who walked with God. Hebrews 11 tells us that Enoch walked with God and was "no more". He never died. He was just taken to be with God. What kind of legacy are you leaving behind when you are "no more"? When we walk with God in faith, we don't have to work to please God, we simply depend on His guidance to lead us. Join us as we talk about the faith of those who came before us through Hebrews 11.

Sacrificial Faith As Offering; Cain & Abel

Reid Olson

9/10/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Genesis 4. Cain kills his brother Abel at the beginning of time. Since sin crept into the garden with Adam & Eve, it continues to creep through the lives of everyone. Sin was evident in the first murder in history also. Cain's offering wasn't acceptable to God for some reason, but his brother's was acceptable. What do you do when you get jealous? How do you respond with you don't feel favored? Do you lash out and kill others around you, even with a look? We can all act like one of these two brothers. Hebrews 11 leads us to believe that faith is the evidence of things hoped for and assurance of things unseen. How do you grow your faith when you're challenged by competition? In our world of competition and jealousy, God gives us a third way of faith. Join us in Hebrews 11 as we grow in faith.

Annual Church Check-Up

Reid Olson

9/3/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Acts 2:42-47. When was the last time you had your physical check up? How did it go? When was the last time you had your spiritual church check-up? How did you rate? We take a spiritual survey annually to determine how we're growing in evangelism, discipleship, worship, fellowship & service to others. How would you rate on these 5 categories in the church body? Join us as we find out together, how we're doing.

Your Story Matters To God

Reid Olson

8/27/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Luke 8:1-15; the parable of the farmer sowing seeds. You have a story to tell about how God is working in your life, and as you tell your story, you share the love of God with others. God has you in the right place, at this right time, for God's kingdom purposes. Don't squander this life for yourself, rather, make your life accessible to God's use. How well do you share your faith with others?

Working With God, Instead of For God

Reid Olson

8/20/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Matthew 9:1-8. The story of the man healed from paralysis is fascinating. We sometimes mistake it for a simple story of healing, which isn't ever simple. But this miracle takes a turn and God brings forgiveness along with healing. This is called Shalom in the Bible, God's salvation (Shalom) is more than peace, it is a wholeness of forgiveness, healing and making things right in the world. Jesus uses this moment in this young man's life to point others to God. The friends who brought the young man to Jesus were rewarded for their faith. Those who opposed Jesus were dumb founded by his authority from God the Father. All in all this is a wonderful teaching on working with God, instead of for God. Do you understand the difference? Click the link below, and follow along.

Seeing Through God's Eyes

Reid Olson

8/13/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on John 9. The healing of the blind man is more than a miracle healing, it is an example of the God of all Creation working to create the Kingdom of God through Jesus Christ the Messiah. Jesus is the light of the world, and by healing the man born blind, he is bringing God's light of healing and restoration into our world. Those that opposed this man's healing testimony, his neighbors, the religious leaders, and even his parents, were caught in a vortex of blame and accusations against the healing, rather than seeing God through who Jesus is. Don't become blind in this process of blame, rather become seeing through the miracle of Jesus redemption in the world.

A Faith That Remains Focused

Reid Olson

8/6/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Matthew 14. Jesus walking on water is one infamous miracle story. The disciples were in a boat, surrounded by a storm, some 3.5 miles off shore, and Jesus comes walking by. Have you ever felt alone in your faith? Have you ever been so scared of the circumstances around you, that you'd do almost anything to make the storm stop? Have you ever wanted faith like Peter, who stepped out on to the water to walk toward Jesus? When Jesus rebuked Peter for taking his eyes off of Christ, we take that as a chastisement from Jesus. What if that meant that at least Peter had some faith to begin with, and he had room to grow? Join us in this sermon about the miracle of keeping our faith in focus amidst the storms in life.

Your Story; Rescue, Rehab, Release

Reid Olson

7/30/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on John 4. The woman at the well encountering Jesus is a famous event in the Gospels. Jesus rescues her from broken relationships and from dipping her bucket into a well void of life, and provides her living water with spiritual springs that will never run dry. He takes time to share with her a new identity in worship, and then releases her to share with her town that Messiah has come. The town is receptive and she becomes known as the first missionary to tell others about Jesus. Join us in finding out how to share your story of rescue, rehabilitation and release.

Your Story; God's Rescue Mission

Reid Olson

7/9/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Luke 15. Jesus is accused of hanging out with the wrong type of people, doing the wrong type is things. He responds with a tale of 3 stories, where he share the love of God expressed in the seeking and saving of the lost items. Join us as we explore the love of God for the lost. Discover where you are lost without God, and how you can be found in God.

Leaders Are Learners

Reid Olson

7/2/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on wisdom as a spiritual discipline. People with faith in God are called to continue learning and sharpening their minds, so that they might honor God with all they have. Some people label Christians as following God with blind faith. They say, "How do you know if the Bible is true?" "Why would you put your faith into some God you can't see?" Billy Graham said, "You can't see gravity, or the wind, you can see the effects of each, but even though not seeing, everyone believes they are true." People with faith in God believe that God exists and He wants us to truly know Him through His Son, Jesus Christ. You can know God personally, and even though it takes faith, we believe and continue to learn with wisdom how to trust in God.

Writing as Spiritual Discipline

Reid Olson

6/25/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on writing as spiritual practice of faith. Where do you spend time writing out your faith? What do you focus on when you write? Some like to write like a diary, some like a journal, some write scriptures and some write out the character of God. However you write, it is right for you. You grow in faith by writing down how God is growing you in faith. When we write out prayers to God, or scriptures from God, we grow in our walk with God. Writing is an excellent process when processing your faith. Don't neglect writing.

Being Quiet Enough To Listen

Reid Olson

6/18/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on silence as a spiritual discipline. How often do you take the time to be quiet and listen to the speaking of the Holy Spirit. Sometimes we can get away from others long enough to be quiet for a moment. We need to learn to be still before the Lord. To be quiet and practice solitude is something that builds our faith, grows our confidence in the Lord, gives us strength to carry on through the hard times, and lets us rest in the trust that God will provide. Where are you in your practice of silence and solitude?

Fasting from Food, on Purpose

Reid Olson

6/11/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Matthew 6:16-18. What is it like to fast from food for a meal, for a few meals, for a few days? What's the purpose of fasting? What are people supposed to accomplish through this ancient practice of spiritual growth? Some people skip a meal in the week because they are too busy to eat. Some skip a meal because they're trying to lose weight. Some skip meals because of lack of income, or lack of convenience, but skipping a meal on purpose for the sake of godliness is an entirely different reason. Join us this week as we look at the benefits of fasting in order to grow your faith.

Financial Stewardship

Reid Olson

6/4/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Philippians 4:18-19. What does it mean for our lives in faith when we give financially to the work of the Lord? Do you have a spiritual practice of giving a portion of your finances to the local church? Do you give with joy, or reluctantly? Do you give on a regular basis, or only when you can afford to give? What would it look like for you to begin practicing financial giving on a regular schedule and with an increasing amount each year? Do you know that the Lord will bless you when you give as a spiritual discipline? It's true.

"How May I Serve You"?

Reid Olson

5/28/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Philippians 2 where Jesus is the humble servant. Paul teaches the young church at Philippi that the way to serving is through humility. Join us as we learn what it means to serve the community.

Sharing Faith w/o Being a Jerk

Reid Olson

5/21/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Luke 10. Jesus sends out the 72 followers to go and prepare the cities for his entrance, ahead of him. He tells them to go in peace and eat whatever is set before them. I like this kind of evangelism. Jesus isn't mean about sharing the Kingdom of God, he sends it out with kindness and peace. How do you share your faith in Jesus? Are you a jerk about it? Do you have to convert people to the faith and make it all about "you", or can you let the Spirit of God do the work? Listen with us at Crossroads as we practice sharing faith as a spiritual discipline.

Worship as Antidote to Worry

Reid Olson

5/14/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Matthew 6. Jesus teaches us to replace worry with worship. Seek first, the Kingdom of God and all these things will be added to you. How do you practice worship? What are your best practices when it comes to overcoming the mess of this world? On this Mother's Day we come to celebrate the gift of Worship and focus on worship in Spirit and in Truth.

Following Jesus; Learning To Pray

Reid Olson

5/7/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on learning to pray like Jesus. We can talk about prayer, talk about why we pray, when to pray, what to say in prayer, who to pray for and even how to pray, but learning how to pray takes practice. We need to learn to pray, not so that we become good at prayer, rather so that we grow in godliness. Join us for a sermon on how to pray scripture meditation prayers.

Following Jesus; Bible Intake

Reid Olson

4/30/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Bible Intake as a Spiritual Practice. What are your spiritual practices that keep you grounded with the Lord Jesus? Do you have a regular reading routine with the Bible? Do you have a Bible reading app? When is your favorite time of day to spend time in God's Word? Whenever it may be, be sure to continue. Some say, "I don't know why God feels so far away from me." and my answer is, "How much time do you spend reading the bible?"

Baptism Sunday, 2017

Reid Olson

4/23/17

Description:Crossroads Church of Greeley celebrates believer baptism with the congregation. We come to the waters with Jesus and submit ourselves to the work God has done, and continues to do, in our lives. These 6 people have given their lives to Jesus and commit their lives to walking in faith with God and with the church.

Follow Jesus; One Step At A Time

Reid Olson

4/23/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on spiritual disciplines. We need something to calibrate our compass of faith, once in a while. We need to ground ourselves in the ways of Jesus so that we get to know Him and become more like Him in our daily walk with God. It's one thing to "know God", but another thing entirely to practice the steps of faith that draw us closer in relationship with Jesus. We overview the series in this talk about following Jesus; one step at a time.

Being Made Right With God (John 20)

Reid Olson

4/16/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on being made right with God. There are so many religions and different views of faith in the world today. How do we know which one is the one to lead us to God? How does one know if a religion is teaching the right doctrine in order to know God personally? We explain this to you in our Easter 2017 sermon, Being Made Right With God. You will enjoy testimony from Michelle Allen also, as she describes her living faith in God. If the resurrection is true, then Christian faith is true.

Palm Sunday; "How Do We Worship?"

Reid Olson

4/9/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Luke 19. Jesus had just come from Zacchaeus's house where Zach is transformed by the loving grace of Jesus. Then as Jesus walks toward Jerusalem, his disciples secure a donkey for the triumphal entry. They lay down palm branches and their coats as Jesus enters into the city. They praise Jesus and give him their worship. Some reject him and tell Jesus to stop this blasphemy. What would you do? Where is your allegiance to Jesus? Some rejoice over the God of the Universe sending His very Son for our salvation. Some don't understand at all, and some completely reject the work of God through Jesus. Where do you stand on this issue?

Baby Dedication

Reid Olson

4/2/17

Description:Crossroads Church of Greeley experienced a wonderful baby dedication. April 2, 2017, Nate & Holli Pletcher bring their daughter, Sophie Grace Pletcher to be dedicated to the Lord and with His Church.

The Right To Be Heard (Acts 28)

Reid Olson

4/2/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Acts 28. Paul the Apostle, is now on the island of Malta where a snake wraps around his hand. He is not overcome by the snake bite, just like we are not overcome by the serpent's sting of death. Satan has no power over the believer in Jesus Christ. Paul moves to healing everyone on the island, just like the beginning of the book of Acts where the Spirit of God is active in healing his people. Then Paul spends 2 more years waiting trial before Caesar in Rome. He speaks to all who would listen. How do you share your faith with others? Do you have the right to be heard in their lives?

Take Initiative Where You Lead (Acts 27)

Reid Olson

3/26/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Acts 27. Paul is being transported from Caesarea to Rome on a ship in the sea. The course of the journey takes the boat through the Adriatic Sea where the boat meets it's fate against the storm. What are the storms in your life? How do you face difficulties when they come upon you? Do you have your faith in God to get you through the storm, or do you try to take control from God? How are you leading with faith over your fears? Join us this week as we look at how God is with us in the storms of life.

Always Be Prepared (Acts 26)

Reid Olson

3/19/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Acts 26. The Apostle Paul stands before King Agrippa and gives testimony, once again, about the reason for the hope he has in Christ. It reminds me of 1 Peter 3:15 where Peter writes, "But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect..." When Paul is speaking about his faith in God, he uses gentleness and respect. He wants everyone everywhere to know Jesus. How are you sharing the hope of the gospel of Jesus with people? Does your hope in God become a talking point with others? How can you set apart Christ as Lord in your life?

Don't Squander Opportunities (Acts 24)

Reid Olson

3/5/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Acts 24. The Apostle Paul is held in prison for 2 years after giving the speech of his life to Governor Felix. He says that he believes in the resurrection of Jesus the Christ. Felix keeps him under lock and key but wants to listen to what the wise Apostle has to say about Jesus. Paul shares about the scriptures that he would later write. I wonder if you're more like the Apostle Paul with people, or more like Governor Felix? Felix only listened when it was convenient. Are you like this?

Keep Your Focus On Jesus (Acts 23)

Reid Olson

2/26/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Acts 23. We are now into the thick of the trial over the Apostle Paul's testimony to the Jews. He stands before the Sanhedrin to give reason for the faith he believes. He believes in the resurrection from the dead, including the afterlife. The Sadducees disagree and want him dead. Paul's nephew saves the day with a little obedience to God in telling Paul about the plot to kill him. He tells the commander of the guard and Paul's life is spared. What are some of the hurdles in faith that you can't seem to overcome? Do you have obstacles in your life, self-inflicted, or otherwise, that keep you from enjoying the grace of God. Join us as we talk about legalism and overcoming the obstacles of our faith.

What Is Your S.T.O.R.Y. & Why Does It Matter? (Acts 22)

Reid Olson

2/19/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Acts 22. We see that the Apostle Paul is given the opportunity to share his testimony in a public setting. This is Paul giving his defense for why the people shouldn't kill him. We can learn something from Luke writing Paul's personal testimony in the book of Acts. We learn to start at the very beginning, tell the truth about your past, offer your life to God, reject your stinking thinking, and your story isn't for you, anyways. Join us as we learn how to share our testimony of faith with others.

Obeying The Will Of God (Acts 21)

Reid Olson

2/12/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Acts 21. When the Apostle Paul decides to go to Jerusalem, the Spirit of God warned him that trouble and hardship faced him ahead. He was not terrified or afraid. He went to Jerusalem knowing that the will of God compelled him to share God's love with the world through Jesus. We learn what is the will of God, why we should obey it, and how to obey it. Join us for this adventure.

Character; Being Before Doing (Acts 20)

Reid Olson

2/5/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Acts 20. Sometimes we get confused in our faith with God. Once in a while we lose perspective, and forget that God did all the work for our faith. Remember; our job is to be transformed through the work of Christ, not the work we do to make God happy. Paul the Apostle taught us that his calling was to glorify God and share the Good News of the Gospel, in spite of himself. Follow along with us as we see God's role in our character development; being before doing.

A Teachable Attitude (Acts 18)

Pastor Drew Yancey

1/22/17

Description:Pastor Drew Yancey, guest speaker at Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Acts 18. The Apostle Paul is establishing churches in Corinth and has a tough road ahead of him in Acts. Not everyone is on the same page, so Paul needs to teach people how to follow God through Jesus. Join us as we hear from Pastor Drew on how Apostle Paul reminds each of us to follow God through the hard times with a teachable attitude.

Connect Before We Expect (Acts 17)

Reid Olson

1/15/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Acts 17. We notice the evangelism style of the Apostle Paul in this chapter. He's not like modern day evangelicals, who preach at people and offend them with their approach. Paul shows us how to approach with kindness, relate to something out in the open, make reference of who the true God is, and ask people to repent. Paul gives us a good example of how to share the faith by drawing close to others.

Going All-In With Your Faith (Acts 16)

Ben Larsen

1/8/17

Description:Pastor Ben Larsen of Mosaic Church, Greeley spoke at Crossroads Church of Greeley about the issue of going all-in with your faith. Sometimes we just dip out toe in the pool water, or wade into the shallow end of faith, rather than plunging into the deep end with all that we have. Paul the Apostle did no such thing. He found himself in the deep end of faith and sets an example that we should live like he did, for Jesus' sake. Paul was in prison in Acts 16 and sang worship and praised God, during the difficult circumstances. What do you focus on the most when life gives you difficult circumstances? Our hope is that you'd go "all-in" with your faith and grow where God has you to grow, in Jesus.

Faith; Freedom & Boundaries (Acts 15)

Reid Olson

1/1/17

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Acts 15. The Jews demanded that the new Gentile converts to Christianity go through ritual circumcision, and follow the laws of Moses in order to receive faith and be welcomed in. Paul & Barnabas travel to Jerusalem to meet with the Apostles and church counsel to decide what was best. They wrote a letter saying they would do well to abstain from certain things, but circumcision was no longer required for faith. What kind of rules do we place on people before they come to faith today? What sort of expectations do we demand before someone can join our faith fellowship in 2017? Do your rules keep people out, or let people in? How do you show grace to your neighbor and shine the light of Christ?

Jesus; The Prince of Peace

Reid Olson

12/25/16

Description:Merry Christmas from Crossroads Church. Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Isaiah 9:6. Jesus was born The Prince of Peace, as a baby and placed in an animal feeding trough. What kind of peace do you need in your life, and how do you seek it? Do you participate in ways that seek temporary peace, or do you give your life to the Prince of Peace? Only Jesus can give you true peace through faith in God. Sar Shalom is the Hebrew for commander of God's true salvation peace. Jesus is our Sar Shalom. Give your life to God today.

It's a Messy Christmas; Luke 2

Reid Olson

12/24/16

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Luke 2. The narrative of the birth story of Jesus has become so glorified and commercialized, that we seldom stop to think of how discrete and obscure the event really was. I'm sure not many teenage mothers today would want to give birth in an animal stable and lay their newborn down in an animal feeding trough. The fact that God made his presence known into this dirty world, through an experience like this, is proof again that God enters into our mess. If God can enter the mess of an animal stable on the night Jesus was born, what area of your messy life will you allow God to enter? Are you keeping God from entering your life somehow? Do you have a road closed sign up in your life, where God is not allowed in? Give God passage tonight to enter into the mess of your life, and see if real healing will begin, so God can bring you peace.

Jesus; The Everlasting Father

Reid Olson

12/18/16

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Isaiah 9:6. Jesus shall be called The Everlasting Father, upon his birth. No one is a father when they are born. In fact, Jesus never married and didn't father any children, so how could he be called the Everlasting Father? We look into this spiritual nickname for Jesus given by the prophet Isaiah as we look at the role of God the Father in the life of Jesus. Jesus is the exact representation of the Father God. In Jesus we see all the qualities of God the Father, compassion, justice, generosity, gracious care. Join us as we look at the attributes of God the Father in Jesus.

The Mighty God

Reid Olson

12/11/16

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Isaiah 9:6. God became flesh and dwelt among his people. He became a man, in Jesus Christ himself. His nickname in Isaiah 9:6 is The Mighty God. How is Jesus the Mighty God when he limited his presence to one human, he limited his power and became like one of us? Jesus is Mighty God because he could limit himself. The most powerful expression of Mighty God, is when God would limit himself to become a child, born of a woman, so that we might have true salvation in him.

Wonderful Counselor

Mark Jones

12/4/16

Description:Mark Jones, of Crossroads Church of Greeley, teaches on Isaiah 9:6. "For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. 7 Of the greatness of his government and peace there will be no end." What does it mean for Jesus to be born "Wonderful Counselor"? How does his counsel provide care and offer wonderful compassion to us today?

The JOY of Trials (Acts 14)

Reid Olson

11/27/16

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Acts 14. Paul the Apostle, along with Barnabas, are able to share the gospel as doors of faith open in new communities. They have been given the gifts of spiritual healing to accompany their message of grace through Jesus, so some are healed. This doesn't sit well with their opposition. They are stoned, nearly to death, and dragged out of the city, but after prayers, they are healed and continue God's work. What do you do when you face opposition? What is your way of working through trials in your life? Do you give up, and quit, or do you muster up the faith, and continue forward? Join us as we talk about ways to grow in your faith.

Called & Set Apart (Acts 13)

Reid Olson

11/20/16

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Acts 13. Paul and Barnabas were sent off by the Holy Spirit to Cyprus and Paphos. They went to Jewish Synagogues first, to speak to Jewish people about the grace of God. The Jews rejected them, so they turned to the Gentiles to be the light of the world. God's light shines in times of persecution and hate. We see tremendous hate in our world today, but this is no time to shrink back from shining the grace of God into nearby communities. What is your role in being the light of Christ in the dark world that surrounds you?

Counterfeit Character (Acts 12)

Reid Olson

11/13/16

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Acts 12. When King Herod kills James the Apostle, he also puts Peter in prison. He wanted to make the people of his day happy, and his insecurity as a leader led him astray. God sometimes deals with leaders in good ways and bad. As we look at the character of God through the Book of Acts, we find that God is at work and wants His Word to spread and flourish. You play a role in the good character of God. You can participate in culture as God's people, by displaying godly character in the world, rather than the counterfeit character of Herod.

Remain Teachable in Leadership (Acts 11)

Reid Olson

11/6/16

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Acts 11. There's an age old saying, "People like change, until something changes." Is that true in your life? The Apostle Peter needed to explain his actions from Acts 10, where he went to a Gentile's home and they received God's Holy Spirit. He didn't have to explain the Holy Spirit part, as much as the "going to a Gentile's home" part. Why? The prejudice of the newly Christian Jews didn't allow for them to be teachable in leadership. They were restrictive, rather than gracious. When Peter could explain his actions, they were became receptive. Barnabas is a wonderful example of teachability in leading. How teachable are you in leading others? Let's find out. Click the image to hear the sermon.

Your Obedience Matters (Acts 10)

Reid Olson

10/30/16

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Acts 10. We see the character of God through our acts of obedience. The Apostle Peter was summoned from Joppa to Caesarea so he could meet with Cornelius and his family. Cornelius was the first Gentile to receive the Holy Spirit and later began a church in that town. The Church of God is moving out of the Jewish community of faith toward the "ends of the earth" through expansion. Join us as look at how our obedience to the Spirit of God matters for issues of living well in the Kingdom of God. How have you put up a wall and excluded people from the Kingdom of God, rather than act in obedience to include more people?

God's "B-Team" People (Acts 9)

Reid Olson

10/23/16

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Acts 9. This is one of the most famous chapters in the book of Acts. The terrorist, Saul, was still breathing murderous threats to the Church when the Lord Jesus, himself, knocked Saul off his personal mission. When the Lord got ahold of Saul, it took some "not-so-famous" people to rally around him and get him on the right mission. Today we talk about Ananias, Barnabas, the Widows and even Simon the tanner. These kind of "B-Team" players, are people like you and me, who play a role in the shaping of God's Kingdom on earth, as it is in heaven.

Chasing After The Wild Goose (Acts 8)

Reid Olson

10/16/16

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Acts 8. When the early church faced persecution, they were scattered throughout Judea and Samaria. Once scattered, the church began preaching the gospel of Jesus and the church began to expand. Often, when we go through something difficult in life, we tend to think God has forgotten about us, or that God isn't paying attention. What would happen if we changed our perspective about bad things and said, "God has a better plan in mind than I do."? No matter the difficulties we face, we are challenged to preach the word of God wherever we go. Are you up for the challenge?

Stay Committed To Your Faith (Acts 7)

Reid Olson

10/9/16

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Acts 7. The Church is experiencing persecution and one of their own goes through the worst trial imaginable; martyrdom. Would you die for your faith, if it came down to it? Would you be willing to stand up for your faith in God, no matter the cost? Sometimes Christian believers go through unimaginable trials, but God is with us and will never leave us. Join us this week as we look at the life of Stephan and see his commitment to faith.

Don't Neglect Leadership (Acts 6)

Reid Olson

10/2/16

Description:Pastor Reid Olson of Crossroads Church of Greeley teaches on Acts 6. A serious issue of favoritism and neglect breaks out in the early church when the widows of one community are being overlooked in the distribution of food. Seems simple enough. The Twelve come together and make a leadership decision that begins a new trajectory in the early Church about how to delegate and choose leaders for a task. How do you choose people to hire in your company? How do you represent yourself when seeking employment? These leadership events that occurred in Acts 6 are enlightening enough to our faith, that they model Godly character for us to live by. Join the conversation.
