Worship Director Justin Jackson is continuing a series on the book of Ruth where Boaz sets up a legal tribunal at the city gate to determine who will redeem Ruth and Naomi.

Pastor Josh Carstensen is continuing a series on the book of Ruth where chapter 3 describes an event that's hard to understand because we're not told the intent behind their actions.

Pastor Gary Jones is continuing a series on the book of Ruth where we look at Ruth's faithful character as she interacts with Boaz and serves Naomi - Ruth is not a damsel in distress, but a hero!

Pastor Josh Carstensen is continuing a series on the book of Ruth where we meet Boaz. The author calls him a worthy man, and then shares eleven indicators of a worthy man.

Pastor Josh Carstensen is continuing a series on Ruth where Naomi and Ruth return to Bethlehem. Ruth enters the city as an outsider from Moab, a group of people constantly fighting with God's people.

Pastor Josh Carstensen is starting a series on Ruth where we take a step back to look at the whole Bible, its origins, and why we should obey it.

Worship Director Justin Jackson is talking about worship. In Revelation 5, we see every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea, and all that is in them worshiping him who sits on the throne and the Lamb who was slain. It’s passionate and joyful worship. Do you feel an overflow of passion and joy when you worship God on S…

NWH Intern Dacoda (Cody) Wagner is continuing a series on John where the story of Jesus slows down to focus on the last week of his life.

What does it …

In John 11, we examine the pivotal story of Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead. It's the final climb of the roller coaster in Jesus's ministry before his rapid arrest, trial, and death. We'll look at 14 lessons from this story. It's a lot! As you listen, think about how you can apply each one to your life. After the message, you're invited to answ…
 
This week we’re celebrating everyone who serves at Northwest Hills. Not only is serving important from a logistical, help-the-church-function standpoint, but it’s also an important component of relationships and community. The story of Hosea serving Gomer demonstrates how God serves us because of his love for us. And our serving is a way for us to …

In the second half of John 8 Jesus continues to make bold statements like, "the truth will set you free" (8:32) and, "...before Abraham was, I AM" (8:58). These truths cause a heated debate, rude comments by the Pharisees, and shatters the box they have for Jesus to the point that they want to stone Jesus to death. How will you react to the real Je…
 
In John 8 we see Jesus being confronted by the religious leaders. It's a power struggle over who is right.

Jesus famously feeds the five thousand, but He offers us more than bread and fish. Jesus offers us himself, which is the real bread that we need in a wilderness of hunger and longing. Are you seeking Jesus just to fulfill something that you want? Or are you seeking him for who he truly is? After the message, you're invited to answer some applicatio…
 
Jesus heals a man and then claims to be God. This claim is incredibly offensive because it breaks all the Jew's rules. But, Jesus defends his claim with five evidence-based arguments. What evidence are you looking for that would help you believe that he is alive today and is worth giving your entire life to follow? After the message, you're invited…
 
Happy Easter! Pastor Josh Carstensen is continuing a series on John where Jesus heals a man at a well on the Sabbath.
