This week, pastors Rich, Kim, and Cooper tackle these topics, as well as other questions regarding having a relationship with Jesus (4/24/22).Autor: Rich Beasley, Kim Smith, Cooper Smith, Eastview Students, Eastview Students: High School, Eastview Christian Church
 
This week, Zach talks about the beating and mocking that Jesus endured before the cross. It is in this brutal punishment meant only for the worst of criminals that we find the incredible love of Jesus. That he would take our punishment so that we might walk in the freedom of life forever with Him. It’s the kind of love that changes everything for u…
 
This week, Regan preaches out of Mark 15 on the story of Jesus being handed over by Pilate to be crucified. In the midst of His trial, Jesus' shows His love, peace, and humility, especially when a murderer named Barabbas was released instead of Him. Jesus endured His torturous death out of his immense love for all sinners, and we can live with hope…
 
This week, Zach talks about the trial of Jesus before the Jewish council. This trial was unfair, full of insane accusations, and hard to read. And yet, we must come to understand that this should be our trial. And unlike Jesus, we are guilty. This week, Zach talks about how Jesus took our place and proved his love for us by defending us and forgivi…
 
In life, we go through hard and scary things. The truth is, this world is messed up, and we can sometimes feel betrayed, hurt, and overwhelmed. Jesus understands what this is like, because of what he went through when he was willingly arrested, as recorded in Mark 14. Zach encourages us this week to stick with Jesus in the midst of hard things, and…
 
This week, Zach looks at Jesus’ prayer in the garden the night before he heads to the cross.

We, like Peter, all have a tendency to deny Jesus. Whether with our silence or with our lifestyle. As those with the good news of Jesus, what does it look like to show others we follow Him? In this sermon, we will learn to show that we are followers of Jesus. But more important, know we can be because all of our failures are gone and done with. (2/…
 
This week, Zach talks about Peters response to Jesus being arrested. Instead of looking to Jesus and following his plan, he pulls out a sword and start swinging. In the moments where we feel prone to temptation/sin, instead of lashing out, we should look to Jesus. (1/30/22)Autor: Zach Thompson, Eastview Students, Eastview Christian Church, Eastview Students: High School
 
Life is hard. So many of us face really difficult challenges, and it can be easy to feel discouraged and overwhelmed. This week, Matt encourages us to stop facing these things alone!

This week, Zach talks about Peter’s failure to make a promise he can’t keep. So often we approach following Jesus with an “I got it” attitude. But, when we rely on ourselves, instead of Jesus, we get a greater failure because of myself. We need more of a “Jesus help me approach.” Zach talks about how we can do that and how we can also find hope tha…
 
How often do we make assumptions about Jesus that aren't true? How often do we follow man-made ideas of Jesus, instead of following who Jesus actually is?

(12/12/21)Autor: Matt McClane, Eastview Christian Church, Eastview Students, Eastview Students: High School
 
Do you believe in miracles? Do you believe that miracles still happen? This week, to kick off our new “Christmas Miracles” series, Zach preaches from Mark 6 about the miraculous feeding of the 5,000. In our lives, we often think that miracles like this don’t happen anymore, but what if they did? What if God could work miraculously in your life duri…
 
This week, Zach talks about the good news of Jesus. In just 2 simple verses, Jesus reveals his character and his mission. To fulfill a promise, to bring God close, to defeat sin, and to believe in him. When you think about your life up until this point, who is Jesus to you? That’s the question to ponder this week… (11/28/21)…
 
Temptation is all around us and is something that we all experience. This week, guest preacher Joy Thompson talks about the temptation of Jesus in Mark chapter 1, and how Jesus withstood against Satan's futile attempts against Him.

When you wake up, is your goal to make your name great, or to make Jesus' name great? Are our lives focused on building our own kingdoms, or the Kingdom of God? This week, Zach dives into the story of John the Baptist, and how we can learn from His example of proclaiming Jesus. Jesus has rescued us, and He has set the ultimate example of love and h…
 
How often do we hesitate to follow Jesus? What would it look like to respond immediately to Jesus, instead of telling Him "I'll get to that in a little bit?" This week, Zach preaches about how Jesus is always worth it, and how following Him means responding "at once." A relationship with Jesus is wonderful, but this world is also full of people tha…
 
The world desperately needs to know about Jesus. How can God use us to tell the world about Him? What God might be calling us to do in order to help more people hear the good news? Why should we care about missions? In Episode 15 of Counterculture, Zach and Cooper talk to Tommy Nika and Paul Beeghly, two pastors of Eastview Global, about what "Miss…
 
This week, we're starting a NEW SERIES called "Beginnings," where we'll be diving into the New Testament stories of Peter and Mark. This week, Matt takes us through the life of Mark in the scriptures, and shows how we can be encouraged by looking at his story.

This week, Zach talks about the importance of doing life TOGETHER. As we follow Jesus, we need to be evaluating the people that we are influenced by.

May we be encouraged to lean into our fellow …

So, we brought in former Eastview High School pastor Matt Fogle to discuss what it looks like to practice mar…
 
We likely all feel insecure and inadequate at some level when it comes to serving Jesus. We feel like we’re not popular enough, not smart enough, not athletic enough, etc. This week, Zach reminds us from Exodus 3 that God is not limited by our own limitations, and that He desires for us to say “yes” to serving Him. We can serve Christ because, even…
 
We are loved, accepted, and cared for. We are children of God. This week, Matt talks about how God gives us purpose, identity, and calling.

(9/26/21)…
