I Resolve…

This is that time of year when we become painfully aware of who we are not, and what we need to do differently. Traditionally, the new year is a season of self-absorption. It’s all about what we can do to make ourselves better people. The result is that churches, health clubs, debt counselors, and vitamin shops do a booming business. But we tend to forget that the people we respect the most didn’t devote their lives to becoming the best […]

Fruit of the Spirit – Oct Series

The fruit that Paul describes in Galatians 5 is undoubtedly something that anyone breathing would want to see in their life. This cornucopia of love, joy, peace and six other traits is an appealing package.  But, they don’t come by simply trying harder. They are given to each believer as a byproduct of receiving the Spirit of Jesus.  In this series, we will look at what the authentic version of these fruit look like and how to maximize their presence […]

Upside Down Series

In Matthew 5, 6 & 7, Jesus gives us a surprising glimpse at the ethics of His coming Kingdom.  His teaching impacts our social status, our friendships, how we view money, and how we practice our faith.  His teaching is so counter-cultural that he appears to take our cultural norms and turn them upside down.  And yet these unlikely truths give us a foundation of truth that can withstand the storms of life.  The underlying assumption of our culture is […]

Come Alive!

EASTER 2017 We have a huge fascination in our culture with anything related to the living dead. It’s portrayed in video games, movies, tv shows. But Scripture teaches us that there is a similar phenomenon with our souls.  We can be awake and breathing and watching zombie shows but at the same time be spiritually dead.  The good news is that the power that breathed life into Jesus on that resurrection Sunday is the same power that can make your […]

We will find the way of Jesus often has unexpected twists and turns but also unexpected rewards.   Join a […]
