Scheming satraps, political plotting, brutal backstabbing, a king surrounded by intrigue, and a cave-full of lions (wait, what?). Join us this Sunday to hear the story's that got it all —and so, so much more!
Jacob's been running all his life. He ran from his father, brother, and uncle after lying and stealing from all of them. This trickster can't run anymore, though. His brother's only hours away and he's got 400 men with him. Jacob's at the end of his rope. But, just as things seem bleakest, someone shows up.
And he wants to wrestle.
It's the fight of the century! On one side, we've got the royally ticked-off king of Israel and his 850 prophets of Baal. On the other, we've got the last solitary prophet loyal to God. Whose deity's got what it takes to bring back the rain to drought-ridden Israel? Tune in this Sunday!
Ten thousand bloodthirsty raiders, 300 randomly-picked Israelites, and one frightened wine-maker. What could go wrong?
How are we supposed to work, live, and interact with one another in light of the fact that the Creator of the universe came to Earth as a man and died on a cross? The letter to Philemon offers and answer to all these questions (and more!).
How do you handle suffering? Do you run and try to avoid it like the plague? In this message, we'll explore what God really asks us to do, which is to simply show up. What does that mean? Listen or watch to find out.
No one likes to suffer. But hardship is something we can can actually embrace because of one powerful truth. In this message, we'll explore what that is.
Unfortunately, one of the things you can count on in life is suffering. Good news, though: that’s not the only thing you can count on if you’re following Christ. In this message, we’ll explore how integral suffering is to the Christian experience, and what makes that more than okay.
What can we learn from Jesus' ascension to heaven?
Guest speaker Dr. Brad East leads us to consider a few key truths.
Just about everyone (Christian or not) has a story about that one time a Christian said something truly dumb. Hey, we're all human. It happens.
However, some of the phrases and platitudes Christians have come to rely on aren't actually from Jesus. Some things we say aren't true. Others are downright irreverent. In this message we'll identify a few so we can move toward knocking it off with the dumb sayings.
Why Do We Sing In Church?
Isn't it kind of strange that, every Sunday, millions of people gather in rooms around the world and sing together?
Have you ever wondered why God likes music so much, and why He commands us to sing?
In this message, we'll explore the spiritual nature of music, and the ways God uses singing to help us grow.
Given that Easter is for everyone, we’d better figure out how to communicate with love in the midst of significant differences. In this message, we'll explore two fascinating events in history to learn about one thing that—according to God—has the power to divide or unite us.
One thing God is famous for is his exacting standards. He’s holy. He does not like sin. Which means that if we’re sinful, we’d better distance ourselves from him...right? In this message we’ll look to Peter in John 21 to see how Jesus treats us when we’ve done less than our best--and to see the best way to respond to God’s holiness.
You'd think that the folks given the immense privilege of being the first witnesses to the resurrection of Jesus would be some serious VIPs. ...But were they?
In this message, we'll shine the spotlight on a few of the first witnesses of Jesus' resurrection and find ourselves reminded of God's broad love and the fact that Easter really is for everyone.
Waiting has a way of taking over and forcing us to live in the future, which leads to discontent and worry. God, though, has an alternative for us—a different place for us to live. In this message, we'll look to a man named Joseph for an example of waiting well and being here now.
Want to wait well? You'll need to lean into two things: Faith that God will provide and Gratitude for what he's already given. In this message, we'll explore what each of those looks like.
Whether you're looking for a job, trying to have kids, enduring a battery of tests at the doctor's office, or figuring out your purpose in life, waiting is hard.
Is it possible God has something to teach us during these seasons of delay?
In this series, we'll talk about waiting and how to make it holy.
Why is asking for help so hard sometimes? God didn’t intend for it to be so difficult. In fact, He makes it pretty clear in scripture He desires involvement in every aspect of our lives, especially our struggles.
All of us are members of several communities, some by choice and others by default. Neighborhoods, school, work, any number of clubs or organizations—all of which function in basically the same way. The members of a community share some common identity or purpose that unifies the group as a whole. Christians thrive on this idea of community, and in fact believe that we are a part of the most extensive, formative, and important community in existence: the Church.
