A new year often comes with old problems; too much to do, not enough time or money to take care of all the things in life. What if there was a perspective that could reshape how we spent our time, money and energy? Wisdom from thousands of years ago can help us all reimagine what ‘normal’ looks like this year.
Too often when people think about church and followers of Jesus we are known for what we are against. We long to be a community known for who and what we are for. That’s why the #foraurora series is more than just a series, we hope it’s the beginning of something incredibly special for our community that everyone can be a part of, where we all work together for the good of those around us.
With lights shining, snow falling and presents waiting; sometimes we need to be reminded that the hope of this season is found in love that was so powerful and so relentless that it saved us. This series focuses on the profound truth of Christmas that hope and forgiveness is waiting for all of us; whether it’s for the first time or the first time in a long time.
We all have regrets. Sometimes they come from things we've done. Other times, our regrets come from things others have done to us. And all too often, those things can hold us back in life. What do we do? Part of the good news is that God, through Jesus, offers us a clean slate. We can bring our regrets to Him—our pain, our past, and our problems—and He can wipe the slate clean.
In this series, we'll learn from stories that are thousands of years old. God doesn't just give second chances, He offers a clean slate.
In relationships, conflict is inevitable. The people we love the most can sometimes bring out the worst in us. Is it possible that there's a way to handle conflict that could actually deepen our relationships rather than bringing them to the breaking point?
In this series, we'll learn how to move from fighting with each other to fighting for each other.
We all have routines And routines are helpful when it comes to knowing what's ahead and keeping things predictable. But sometimes we need to stretch outside of our normal routines for something to get better. We're going to look at stories of people who Jesus invited to stretch outside of their normal in order to experience God's better. Just imagine how far you could reach if you stretch a little.
Every now and then we have weeks that stand alone in their messaging and content.
