The War of God 
1 Kings 18:36-46
Nathan Archer 

On Pentecost Sunday, we often ask for the fire of God to fall down. More realistically, we want the rain of God to fall down; we often don't want the fire. As Elijah's time on Mount Carmel comes to a close, we'll see that we need both. In fact, the fire of God leads to the rain of God; the destructive, cleansing power of God leads to the blessing of God.

Light the Fire 
1 Kings 18:17-39
David Morelli

Everybody worships. The question is: who or what has our worship? As we return to the contest on Mount Carmel, we’ll see that the fire of worship is lit when we pay attention to the altars in our lives.

Rebuilding What's Been Ruined
1 Kings 18:17-39
David Morelli

Jesus said he came to give us ‘life to the full. Yet so many people feel a gap between this and what they experience in their everyday lives. In this story from the life of Elijah we see one way to close the gap and experience the power of God in our lives.

Becoming Lions 
1 Kings 18:1-16 
David Morelli

Between the wilderness and the mountaintop experiences of life is often a long and ordinary road. Not much seems to be happening but in this part of Elijah’s story, we see something different: with every ‘yes’ we give to God, we are led closer to what he has in mind for us.

The Wilderness is Never Wasted

David Morelli

How do ordinary people experience God’s extraordinary power? This question will guide our new teaching series on the life of the ancient prophet Elijah, with the goal of embracing our humanity and becoming the kind of people who experience the power of God.

The Wilderness Pattern
1 Kings 17:1-6 
Nathan Archer 

Elijah, though a human just like us, was a vessel of extraordinary power. As we begin this new series, we consider a consistent pattern that emerges when God does great works: He takes people into the wilderness.
