Identity Series

Who are you? We put our lives and our joy at risk anytime we base our identity on things that could change or on what others think of us. Too many times we believe the lies about ourselves.  Jesus came so that he could give us a whole new identity – the you were intended to be.  In this series, we hope the destructive lies will be laid to rest and your confidence in who God made you to be will soar.

Ephesians – a cosmic shift

The mystery is revealed. That was Paul’s message to the church at Ephesus. The mystery of Christ’s redemption is a moment in time that involves a cosmic shift – Jesus Christ has given us a new identity and a new way of living. Nothing will be the same after Him. Sometimes we recognize our need for that cosmic change in life, while other times we shrug off Christ as semi-important. As we study Ephesians during the season of Lent, you […]

Athletic Ambitions

This year we are planning an exciting service on the day of the big game. Wear your favorite jersey – any sport is okay. Scripture has some great game day encouragement that might just inspire you to get the athlete inside of you off the couch and running the race of life.

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 […]

Psalms Teaching Series

In the closing credits of your life, imagine the list of songs under the “movie soundtrack” acknowledgements. Many times we can’t remember the exact details of an event but we can remember the song that was playing in the background. This series proposes that God has given us the major soundtrack of our lives through the psalms.  This section of Scripture is meant to be sung to God.  It is meant to help guide the focus of our lives.  They […]
