From Surviving to Thriving

A Potter's Wheel Series

This sermon series takes a deep dive into recognising that God does want us to thrive! Yet, many of us are merely surviving rather than thriving. We take a look at the life of Joseph, from Genesis 37-50, to understand how Joseph could thrive in some pretty dire situations. His life gives us some inspiring points to apply to our own lives. God has a purpose for each one of us! He designed us, not just to survive, but to thrive in and for Him! Bearing fruit glorifies God. It's time to thrive in Christ.


Thrive at the Table

by Pastor Kevin Ward
12 March, 2023

God wants you to thrive! God wats you to experience the fullness of joy. God wants you to prosper in your soul!  We do that by coming to the “table” to meet with Father God.   Last week Pr. Kurt’s message “Come to The Table” picked up on how the Lord taught Joseph to come to the Lord’s table, to clear the air, to serve others, and enjoy God’s banquet. We believe that the Lord wants us to know what happens at the table. So why does God call us to the table? It's because He wants us to THRIVE at the table. It is here that the Lord works on us, in us and through us for His glory.

Come to the Table

by Pastor Kurt Platt
05 March, 2023

Joseph experienced betrayal on his way to fulfilling his purpose. Yet, Joseph forgave and served those who betrayed him. Jesus did the same. “Come to the Table” is about how Jesus invites us to His banqueting table to fellowship with Him, and He calls us to invite others to the table too – even those who betray us.  We pray that you will be encouraged.

God wants us to thrive in Him. Thriving involves being fruitful in the Lord. There is so much more to life than just surviving! A key point in thriving is figuring out what we were made to do. So many of us are looking for our purpose. As we look at the life of Joseph, we can see how his purposeful life enabled him to thrive in adverse circumstances. Let’s dive deeper into how we can find God’s purpose for our lives.

by Pastor Kevin Ward

God has a plan for each one of us, and a strong desire that we would thrive. Yet, Satan has laid out some pitfalls to try and entrap us to keep us from thriving! We take another look at the story of Joseph, to see one of these pitfalls that he avoided and overcame in this sermon entitled, “Run Joseph, Run!” based on Genesis 39.

From Surviving to Thriving

by Pastor Kevin Ward

God has great plans for each one of us! God had good plans for Joseph too. Yet, Joseph went through a process that humbled him greatly. If we’re honest with ourselves, we all struggle with pride in some way. But pride can really hinder our ability to bear fruit for Christ and to THRIVE! This sermon introduces the series “From Surviving to Thriving,” and how we can deal with the pride in our lives that stops us from thriving.
