Guest speaker, our very own Tully Wilkinson, continues the series “O Come Let Us Adore Him” with the message “Worship is Generosity” at Shepherd’s Grove on Sunday December 17, 2017.
There are a thousand things in our lives that are asking to be worshiped. But when they are worshiped, everything will fall into alignment with that specific element. Tully shares his story about the first time he encountered Jesus, and focuses on the importance of being vulnerable while worshiping. It is in the place of vulnerability that we truly know that God is there.

How can we let go of the need to prove ourselves? One of the things that distracts us from leading joyful, tranquil lives is reputation management. However, Bobby reminds us that pleasing God with our lives is more than enough. You don't need money or the approval of others to have peace of mind. You can have serenity of mind right now simply by remembering that God loves you, and that will never change.

Pastor Bobby Schuller continues his series “As a Man Thinketh” with the message “Everything is Motivated by Fear or Love” at Shepherd’s Grove on Sunday October 29, 2017.
Thoughts of love and thoughts of fear affect our decisions more than anything. Fear, anxiety, and worry are the most crippling emotions a human can have because when we succumb to them, we stop ourselves from growing. So much of being a matured person of faith is doing things that you're scared of doing. When God calls you to do something, it might foster fear within you. By accepting the love of God and the love of your neighbor, you can conquer your fears. You are never going through it alone.
Pastor Bobby Schuller continues his series “As a Man Thinketh” with the message “Willpower: Going the Distance” at Shepherd’s Grove on Sunday October 22, 2017.
This week, Bobby reminds us to be at peace with the pace at which God gets you to your destination. He is liberating you to be present in the long-term, and giving you freedom to do what you're called to do. Become the kind of person who is willing to do the hard work now, without knowing when it will come to fruition. Prioritize your will power, and learn how to get back up when things get tough. Remind yourself: I'm going to keep living in the rhythms of what I'm meant to do, whatever happens. God has a plan for me.
Pastor Bobby Schuller continues his series “As a Man Thinketh” with the message “The Obstacle is the Doorway” at Shepherd’s Grove on Sunday October 15, 2017.
How we deal with tragedy, small or large, will shape how we live our lives. It's easy to have positive thoughts when things are going well in your life, but keeping those thoughts alive when life gets rough is just as important. Within every loss, there is greater life.
Katie Davis Majors, author of "Daring to Hope", shares her message "The Courage of Surrender" at Shepherds Grove on Sunday October 8, 2017.
10 years ago, Katie decided to move to East Africa unknowing that she would find something even greater than expected. Through her experiences, God grew her ministry and her family, but most importantly grew in her surrender. Regardless of the situation or the outcome, God will provide a way. And knowing this, trusting this, is courage.
Pastor Bobby Schuller continues his series “As a Man Thinketh” with the message “Believing in Destiny and Favor Romans” at Shepherd’s Grove on Sunday October 1, 2017.
Life is hard, and during life's lowest points it is difficult to remember that God is with us. But what we dwell on during each circumstance makes all the difference in the long run. Despite what it is you're going through, you can pave the way towards a beautiful life. The choice is laid before you: Are you lucky or unlucky? Believing you are one or the other will undoubtedly manifest that same belief over everything you do in your life. Faith makes things real. Pastor Bobby encourages us all to remember that, despite my imperfections, God is going to get me to my destiny anyway.
Pastor Bobby Schuller continues his series “As a Man Thinketh” with the message “Choices and Responsibility” at Shepherd’s Grove on Sunday September 24, 2017.
This week, Pastor Bobby reminds us that when we change our thoughts, we change our world. In every circumstance, you always have a choice; you are not helpless. Even if you feel vengeful, guilty, or shameful, you have the choice to do the next right thing. Even the smallest of victories can make a difference. God has already prepared His gift for us. It is our job to respond to it.
Pastor Bobby Schuller continues his series “As a Man Thinketh” with the message “Dignity: Know Your Value In The Father’s World” at Shepherd’s Grove on Sunday September 17, 2017.
Are you coaching yourself, or are you bullying yourself? Be mindful of your self-talk, even in silence, because your thoughts have heavenly power to manifest into reality. The holy mind begins with grace, and focusing on feelings of shame will only hinder your path towards victory. Nothing will change the fact that God loves you. You are justified and deserving of dignity! Remind yourself of this.
Pastor Bobby Schuller continues his series “As a Man Thinketh” with the message “Integrity: The Moral Mind” at Shepherd’s Grove on Sunday September 10, 2017.
How do you achieve the life you desire? Rather than taking pity on yourself and comparing your life to the lives of others, change how you think about your situation. Cherish your visions. Picture what you want in your mind. Write about it. Think about how you want it to look, feel, smell, and make it your reality. God is a dreamer, and he wants you to dream as well!
Pastor Bobby Schuller continues his series “As a Man Thinketh” with the message “Invest in You” at Shepherd’s Grove on Sunday September 3, 2017.
This week, Bobby asks us, "How can you give what you don't have?" Never underestimate the power of your mind. If you invest in the inner workings of your mind, you will reap its benefits throughout your life. Moreover, investing in yourself is one of the best things you can do to invest in others. Within this message, Bobby encourages us to look at life through the lens of the Sabbath: to pray, to play, and to learn. God rested on the seventh day of creation, and so should you. If you invest in yourself, and you give yourself time to rest, you will have more energy and a better vision for the future. You are worth it.
On Sunday August 27, 2017 at Shepherds Grove, Pastor Chad Blake focuses on love and vulnerability with his message "Come Out of Hiding".

By finding the strength to open up, you can encourage others to open up, too.
Pastor Bobby Schuller continues his series “As a Man Thinketh” with the message “Thought and Purpose to Achievement” at Shepherd’s Grove on Sunday August 20, 2017.
This week, Pastor Bobby reminds us that successful people foster the kinds of thoughts that lead to an achieving life. A life of achievement is not the result of your environment, luck, or fairness. Additionally, blaming anyone or anything will only lead to more bitterness. Life, as a whole, is not always going to be fair. You will confront bullies, enemies, and adversaries. These are challenges that you can overcome simply by allowing these negative opinions to roll right off your back, and moving on from them without fostering blame. You are not too "anything" to not do what you are called to do. With God on your side, you can achieve anything.
Pastor Bobby Schuller continues his series "As a Man Thinketh" with the message "Thought as Spiritual and Physical Health" at Shepherd's Grove on Sunday August 13, 2017.
This week, Pastor Bobby reminds us of the intense connection between our mind and body. If you want to change your life, the first step towards manifestation is changing your thoughts for the better. Believe you can create a great life for yourself by creating more positive thoughts. Have faith in your ability to change your world! A healthy mind, always, ALWAYS, leads to a healthy life. It's the order of the universe.
Pastor Bobby Schuller begins his new series "As a Man Thinketh" with the message "As A Man Thinketh, So Is He (Or She)" at Shepherd's Grove on Sunday August 6, 2017.
This week, Pastor Bobby reminds us that good thoughts bear good fruit. Therefore, if you want to change your circumstances, you must change your thoughts. Many of us focus more on the effect, not the root of each circumstance. You are full of possibility, and you are in control. The world needs wisdom. And YOU have the power to offer this through the Word of God, and through strong positive thoughts.
On Sunday July 30, 2017 at Shepherds Grove, Pastor Bobby Schuller speaks about the importance of walking by faith. Your life is not limited to what you are currently experiencing. The more you can see, the more you can be.
Pastor Bobby Schuller continues his series “Our Deepest Need” with the message “Be the First: Forgive and Be Forgiven” at Shepherd’s Grove on Sunday July 23, 2017.

Pastor Bobby Schuller continues his series “Our Deepest Need” with the message “Be There: Being Present and Responsible” at Shepherd’s Grove on Sunday July 16, 2017.
This week, Bobby reminds us that as Christians, one of the best ways to bond with God is through people. Every one of us is high maintenance, and no one can maintain themselves. There are people in this world who love you, and you should love them back, because you need them. The people who accept you for your imperfections and flaws, and choose to love you anyway, that is the deepest form of bonding. Believe you are wanted, believe you are not a burden, and go deeper. It will transform your life.
Pastor Bobby Schuller continues his series “Our Deepest Need” with the message “Be Generous: Find a Need and Fill It” at Shepherd’s Grove on Sunday July 9, 2017.
With this message, Bobby reminds us that our relationship with God cannot be separated from our relationships with other people. And the best way to love Jesus is to love the people He has given you. We are all high-maintenance individuals, but the more significant thing we can do to tend to our relationship with God is to serve others. This week, ask a loved one, "What's the greatest need you have from me that I'm not giving you?" Try not to be offended by the answer, but rather respond with compassion.
Pastor Bobby Schuller begins his new series "Our Deepest Need" with the message "Be Seen: You Can Trust Others" at Shepherd's Grove on Sunday July 2, 2017.
In a world seemingly filled with emptiness and boredom through social media and other forms of technology, it is difficult to distinguish whether this is helping or hurting our connection with one another. How can we bond with each other in a more genuine way?
The greatest barrier that blocks us from bonding with others is the belief that there's something about our lives that isn't lovable, causing us to hide it. Pastor Bobby reminds us that the deepest needs that we may feel inclined to hide, are the things that deserve to be shared and loved the most. In order to be loved deeply, you have to be seen deeply.
