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.

The Hero's Journey, Part 1: How It Begins

Classic stories begin with a character who’s in a zone of comfort...but they want something. This desire disrupts their routine and eventually leads them on a transformative journey. This is exactly how our journey with Christ begins. Without Jesus, you are not what you were made to be, and only He can help you become that.

Hope Arises

Life is hard. Suffering is real. But we don't have to suffer without hope. In this message, we focus on the one event that completely changes the way we navigate difficult things: the resurrection of Jesus.

Feast People, Part 3: Celebration 101

So if we’re to be Feast People who gather regularly to celebrate the work and blessing of God, what does that look like and what are some ways we can do it on purpose?

Focusing on the stories of the Feast of Passover and the Last Supper, we’ll answer those questions.

Signs, Part 3: Clean

What happens when Jesus is interrupted amidst a crowd of followers by a man with the feared disease of leprosy? He does the unthinkable. In this message, we'll watch Jesus demonstrate what he's able to do for us--it's something we desperately need.

Signs, Part 2: Moved With Compassion

Have you ever felt sorry for someone? Jesus sure did and as a result, he took action. In this message, we continue our Signs series by looking at a miracle that points to what Jesus feels when we struggle and the response the he has for us when we call out to him.

Signs, Part 1: Miracle Interrupted

Walking on water, healing the sick, feeding thousands with one kid's lunch, raising the dead--Jesus' miracles were amazing...but why did he do them? In this message, we kick off the Signs series by looking at a pair of miracles that point to one huge truth about Jesus.

Songs About God, Part 4: "Where Are You?" Songs

Sometimes we worship because God is close. But sometimes we worship because God seems far away.

Many of the Psalms include frustrated questions voiced by human beings who are flummoxed by the ways of a God they can’t see and whose ways they often can’t anticipate. In those times, we must remember that God doesn’t prize conceit or convention in worship, but instead always welcomes honesty.

Songs About God, Part 3: Angry Songs

Ever been so angry, you actually wished pain and suffering on the person who wronged you? If so, you’re not alone.

In this message, we’ll explore a Psalm that communicates some startlingly vengeful thoughts and find that it has much to teach us about ourselves, our relationships with other people, and our relationship with God.

Songs About God, Part 1: Love Songs

The Psalms show us a wide variety of expression, but at the core of each of them lies a love for God that drives a deep desire for relationship and a devotion to the communication that’s integral to meaningful connection. In this message, we’ll zero in on how praise and thanksgiving are communicated through the Psalms, and what we can learn from that example.
