Heart Of The Father

In the series "Heart Of The Father" we will discover deeper truths about who God is, how to put our full trust in Him, and how to heal from past wounds that hold us back.

The Fathers Heart is to see ours healed. 

Part 1: Need To Be KNOWN

We have a natural desire to be seen and known, but are we looking for fulfillment in the right places?

There are many facets of God’s character for us to discover, but above all, He wants us to know Him as Father. This may challenge many who have been wounded by earthly fathers. In this message, Pastor Cameron kicks off a new collection of talks called “Heart Of The Father,” focused on healing wounds so we can step fully into what God has for us.


Watch Sermon 1 and think about the following questions. (Journaling your answers is encouraged)

Question One:

How has your life experiences have hindered or helped you to stay rooted in your identity as a child of God?

Question Two:

What's one area of your life where you seek people's approval over God's? How can you begin to shift your affirmation source to find security in the Father?


As we heal from the past and establish healthy patterns for the future, it's good to take an emotional evaluation of how we currently feel. While we don't live by our emotions, they are a helpful guide to evaluating our current mental, physical, and spiritual state.
How do you currently feel?

Anxious, insecure, uncertain, sad... Take a moment to evaluate your current emotional state.

Whats on your mind?

Rehearsing or chewing on something from the past? Often times we find ourselves unable to move forward because of an emotional hangup in the past.

What are you afraid of?

What we're scared of often holds power over our ability to live emotionally healthy and free. Identifying what scares you is a good first step to shifting mental patterns and strongholds.

What are you carrying?

We all carry emotional baggage. Our response can be a result of baggage we're still carrying. Past trauma, broken relationships, rejection, and other emotional weights have a real effect on our present moment.

What can you let go of?

Sometimes our emotions rule over us without constraint. It's okay to feel out of control when it comes to your emotions, but you don't have to navigate the waters alone.

"But you, O Lord, are a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness."

Colossians 3:16

"And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful."
