Hold Fast, Part 2: Follower Or Friend

Thanks, Instagram. Social media trains us to measure our relational life by how many friends or followers we have. But Jesus never measured his friendships this way--he had 12 close friends and was mostly concerned with one test of their friendship: would they bail when things got tough?

Absurd, Part 4: Wise Move

No matter how careful you are, you can’t guard yourself from every bad thing in life. But you can certainly avoid a lot of difficulty by pursuing one thing. In this message, the writer of Ecclesiastes will give us perspective on how to live the best life possible.

Strange Laws, Part 2: Blueprints

What can we learn about the God of the universe from a modular building? As it turns out, a lot. In this message, we'll take a look at the über-detailed blueprints God gave to the ancient Israelites for the construction of the Tabernacle, and we'll explore 3 important things this structure shows us about the God who designed it.

A Better Question

Let's face it: often, we find ourselves interacting with others selfishly, impatiently, or judgmentally. When we walk around this way, we're essentially asking the question, "Who can I not love?" In this message, our student minister, Josh Jones, invites us to let Jesus challenge us to ask a better question. 

The Hero's Journey, Part 2: Crossing The Threshold

As we continue exploring the parallels between classic story structure and our journey as disciples of Jesus, we come to the "Go" moment--a character crossing the threshold between their previous reality and a new “world.” Again and again, Jesus calls us to follow him deeper into spiritual maturity--and again and again, we must decide whether or not to cross the threshold.
