Advent of Hope

Galaxy’s Edge

A long, long time ago in a nation far, far, away… God gave a promise to a man named Abraham. He called him from the nation he lived in to a new land with the promise of a new son. The Lord of Lords, King of Kings, who sits on His throne is still calling. A new adventure awaits us at the Galaxy’s Edge. This begins the next episode in our Happiest Place on Earth series at Ventura Lighthouse Church. Follow along with Pastor Matt’s notes here: 1 – Smugglers RunGenesis 15 After all these things, this word of God came to Abram in a vision: “Don’t be afraid, Abram. I’m your shield. Your reward will be grand!” 2-3 Abram said, “God, Master, what use are your gifts as long as I’m childless and Eliezer of Damascus is going to inherit everything?” Abram continued, “See, you’ve given me no children, and now a mere house servant is going to get it all.”7 He also said to him, “I am the Lord, who brought you out of Ur of the Chaldeans to give you this land to take possession of it.”...

Adventureland

This Sunday at Ventura Lighthouse church, we’re continuing our series about the Happiest Place On Earth; with a stroll through Adventureland. Happiness is not a destination, it’s a journey with God. Will we be distracted by the Tiki Room before we ever enter into the adventure? Are you expecting a smooth little boat ride through the jungle? Do you think you can steer your own way through the Temple of Doom? Life is much more than our expectations if we’re willing to get onboard with God. Follow the adventure with Pastor Matt’s notes here: Luke 1:26-33 “26 In the sixth month of Elizabeth’s pregnancy, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, 27 to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. 28 The angel went to her and said, “Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you.”29 Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be. 30 But the angel said ...

Tomorrowland

In this next installment of our “Park” series – Tomorrowland, Ventura Lighthouse Church, explores a look into the future and the hope to come. Do we let today overshadow tomorrow? Do we find ourselves navigating a dark, rollercoaster of a ride like Space Mountain, lost and tossed around? Are we aware of the tour God can take us on to view how He sees our circumstances? And do you know that your foundation is so solid, nothing can shake it or throw you off course? Take a walk through Tomorrowland with Pastor Matt: 1 –Faith To Leave MountainsEzekiel 37:1-4 1-2 God grabbed me. God’s Spirit took me up and set me down in the middle of a valley strewn with bones. He led me around and among them—a lot of bones! There were bones all over the valley—dry bones, bleached by the sun.3 He said to me, “Son of man, can these bones live?”I said, “Master God, only you know that.”4 He said to me, “Prophesy over these bones: ‘Dry bones, listen to the Message of God!’”A – Led Through Va...

Fantasyland

This morning at Ventura Lighthouse 805 church, we kick off episode 2 of our Park series – Fantasyland. Just like Fantasyland brings to life those classic stories of good vs. evil; sometimes we can feel like we are stuck or lost in our own battles. We need to realign our hope and peace with the real hero of our story – Jesus. To follow along with Pastor Matt, here’s his outline: 1 – Peter Pan And The Lost Sheep Numbers 14:1-3 The whole community was in an uproar, wailing all night long. All the People of Israel grumbled against Moses and Aaron. The entire community was in on it: “Why didn’t we die in Egypt? Or in this wilderness? Why has God brought us to this country to kill us? Our wives and children are about to become plunder. Why don’t we just head back to Egypt? And right now!”4 Soon they were all saying it to one another: “Let’s pick a new leader; let’s head back to Egypt.” A – Unwilling To Grow UpB – Completely LostC – Keep Similar Company 2 –It’s A Scary Wor...
