How can the church win the world, really? In this message, we examine a couple of alternatives.
In any relationship, there's a need for mutual empathy--each person needs to seek to understand the other. In light of that, we’d do well to consider what it feels like to be God. In this series we’ll do just that.
In the end, we’ll learn that everything God feels toward us traces back to one fundamental reality: he loves us.
God has done so much to win us, so much to woo us. When we reject him, it hurts him beyond words. In this message, we’ll explore God’s fascinating self-revelation through the prophet Hosea and find out exactly how God feels when we leave.
Many of us have wondered, “Where is God when I hurt?” Does God see our pain, or is he spending an eternity of isolation in some divine tower somewhere? In the wake of Lazarus’s death, Jesus does something that shows us the answer to these questions.
As we make mistakes along the Road to Better, God’s grace is always more than enough to wipe the slate clean. We will often, however, have to deal with consequences of our bad choices. That doesn’t mean God isn’t with us. If we’ll lean into our Father, his grace will be enough to help us handle those consequences.
If we really want to get better, we have to lean into the channels of connection and transformation that God has created for us. One of those--for David and for us--is worship. In this message, we'll see how worship can keep our relationship with God alive and allow Him to transform us in powerful ways
Hate criticism? Lots of people do. But if you want to become better, that'll need to change. In this message, we look to a fascinating moment in David's life that shows us the benefit of receiving correction.
In the midst of life’s winters (disappointment, failure, etc), we need to understand that God is growing seeds that will lead us into a new season. When the road is tough, remember that it keeps going.
"Why aren't I better yet?" ...Ever wondered that? Most of us have. As we begin this series, we'll explore how our inner complexity and contradictions make our journey of transformation bumpy at times. We'll also take a look at three rules of the road that will help us keep traveling.
Your relationships would be a lot easier if people didn't keep letting you down, right? In this message, we'll explore God's plan for how to have healthy relationships with real people who keep doing stuff wrong.

When God leads us into a Doorway Moment, we should always do these two things.
Generosity is one of those things that needs more than inspiration and good intentions. Sporadic giving to random opportunities isn't what God has in mind for us. In this message, we’ll explore what it takes to actually excel in our giving.
According to Jesus, there's a relationship between your money and your heart that you should know about.
In this message, we explore what it is and find that it has huge implications as we seek to diagnose and to influence our current level of generosity.
Generous people give more than they have to. We love generous people. But are we generous?
In this series, we’ll see that as God shapes us into the image of his Son, a large part of his vision is to make us generous--a quality modeled perfectly and graphically by Christ. We’ll see what it means to be generous, how to develop our generosity on purpose, and what we stand to gain as we do.
