The Glorious Impossible (started 11/30/2014)

Thanksgiving Sunday (started 11/23/2014)
Thanksgiving Sunday
The Story (started 9/14/2014)
The Story

We often think of our life as a mishmash of hundreds of individual moments in time.  But what if everything we experience is really part of one great narrative? When we see the Bible as one seamless narrative, we can find a daily purpose in God’s eternal plan.

Dimensions (started 8/17/2014)
Dimensions

Only the transforming work of the Holy Spirit that strengthens and changes us. What do we do? Open our eyes to the dimensions of Christ’s love - its width, length, height, and depth. Only then can we be filled to the rim with the fullness of God.

Heroes Without Halos (started 6/8/2014)
Heroes Without Halos

The stories of the Bible happened in a hero culture. But biblical heroes surprise us. They are not superhuman. They are often weak, lowly, and make wrong choices. They are ordinary people whom God uses to carry out His work. The triumph of the biblical hero is God's, not the hero's.

My Body ... His Temple (started 5/5/2014)
My Body ... His Temple

Ironically, much of our current culture’s seeming love for the body is a version of an ancient heresy, the denial of the body. The Gnostics espoused the early church heresy of believing in the mind, but not the body. Because the body was nothing, they believed it was disposable - they could do anything and it didn’t matter. The Bible, however, teaches that we don’t have a body, but that we are a body, made in God’s image.

Student Sunday (started 5/4/2014)
Student Sunday

When our students co-lead worship in both venues, we honor graduating seniors, and we give Bibles to our fourth graders.

Crux (started 3/9/2014)
Crux

The Western art tradition powerfully depicts the Passion of Jesus. Each Sunday for Lent 2014, our pastoral team uses an iconic Holy Week painting to teach us new insights about the death and resurrection of our Savior.

Woven (started 2/16/2014)
Woven

A single fiber is weak, incapable of warmth or beauty. But two fibers together form a card, the start of something big. Many fibers become a strand, and many strands become one work of art. We are woven together as part of Christ's Church, with power to change the world.

Post Christian Hope (started 1/5/2014)
Post Christian Hope

Are we in a Post Christian age? Where is Jesus in all of this? Have we been here before? Is there hope for the future? Join us as we explore what it means to have hope in a changing world.

“Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful.” – Hebrews 10:23

Christmas That Never Ends (started 12/1/2013)
Christmas That Never Ends

The Chronicles of Narnia, the classic novels by Christian writer C. S. Lewis, tell the story of four London children who are sent to a professor's country home for protection during World War II. There, they find a magic wardrobe leading to a land called Narnia. To defeat the White Witch, who holds the land under her evil spells, they must join forces with Aslan the lion. These delightful stories are filled with Christian symbolism and profound insight.

Do Justice (started 11/10/2013)
Do Justice

Justice is perhaps more easily understood in its absence. We know injustice when we see it, in poverty and oppression, in racism and crime. Injustice is systemic brokenness. It’s obvious that life isn’t supposed to be this way. Justice is more than a social, political or legal topic. It making what is broken whole and complete. It is a glimpse at the heart of God. The word of God is clear: Do Justice.

Rock: A Life that Can Stand Up to Anything (started 9/2/2013)
Rock: A Life that Can Stand Up to Anything

The Psalmist says, "The Lord is my rock." How true is this? Is it possible to embrace the message of Jesus to such an extent that we live in his heavenly reality day by day? Is it possible, like the house builder who put his house on a rock, that we can live a life that can stand up to anything?

Mind Over Grind (started 8/4/2013)
Mind Over Grind

Well, summer was fun while it lasted. Now it’s back to the grind. Sometimes we think of the “end of summer feeling” as a grief process. From fun and freedom, we return to joyless routines that leave us feeling half alive. Is there a way to look forward to the fall months with passion and spiritual purpose? In John 15, Jesus says, “I’m the vine. You’re the branches.” Then he adds a single word: “Remain.” Learn how this word holds the key to achieving a mind over the grind.

Endless Summer (started 6/23/2013)
Endless Summer

For many, some of our best memories are of childhood summers, when the days seemed endlessly free to roam, explore and play. A treasured memory for many is the family road trip vacation, with luggage on the car, road side attractions, and postcards sent home. A life of grace is designed for the same sense of peace and playfulness. This summer, explore the long sunsets and lemonade days of the faith life.

Real Help for Real People (started 5/26/2013)
Real Help for Real People

This series of reflections on Psalms asks some important questions about our legacy, the value of intergenerational community, the nature of lifelong faith, and the important of fathers.

Sprout (started 5/5/2013)
Sprout

New life can grow in the driest of places. But seedlings are fragile. They need to be carefully planted and nurtured in order to grow. The acting of cultivating such life is what we as the body of Christ do when invest in people and communities around the world. This takes time and sustained relationship. This month we celebrate our ongoing work and call each other to even greater works of growing new life.

I Believe in Doubt (started 3/31/2013)
I Believe in Doubt

The experience of doubts can seem like a vast desert, with no water in sight. We can’t just wish them away. But in the Bible we find a God thoroughly unfazed by our doubts about him. Instead of suffering along the surfaces of our landscape, why not dig deeper into the dry deserts of your faith?

Unbroken

The Power of Particularity (started 12/24/2012)
