Change is unavoidable. But sometimes in the midst of our busy schedules and priorities we don’t change in the ways we hoped we would. We don’t drift into the hope-giving, life-changing direction God wants for us. The Gospel fundamentally changed people and communities thousands of years ago and it’s still doing it today - find out how.
It’s a brand new year with the same old temptations. Your neighbor got a new car for Christmas, you just got passed over for that promotion at work, and your kids aren’t doing as well in school as you’d hoped? Sometimes the things we want most are not what we’d want at all if we had them. We’re going to learn how to be content with today as we pursue tomorrow … together.
What are the questions you've never asked but have always wanted to? God's not afraid of your questions and you shouldn't be either. Join us this summer as we talk through life's big questions. Ready, Set, Ask!
We've all seen highlight reels, but those best moments we watch over and over are created by countless hours of practice we never see. The daily focus required to create sustained success is no accident. Discover God's plan for those rhythms in your life.
It's never been more fun to create things; from the latest project to your dream Pinterest idea, doing it yourself is fun. When we craft God into the things we want him to be, it distracts us from the true power he has and the potential he gives to us. We will dive into the deeper reality of God's character and the kind of understanding that gives us a much fuller life in him.
With so many competing images and pressures, women feel the weight to make all of their life look and feel like what they see in the snapshots of others. There's no way to measure up. But when we grow to treasure the life we actually have, we might find it's the one we were made for all along.
The ups and downs of our days, weeks and lives can feel like a roller coaster. What we thought the present would look like and what we hoped the future would resemble are just not turning out the way we thought. What if someone from the confines of a jail cell thousands of years ago unlocked the secret? What if he could show you and me a type of inner peace and joy that could withstand a tough day or a deep disappointment? Join us for an exploration of the real strength we were all meant to live with.
Everyone is valuable, but how much value does each one have? Jesus' teaching on the individual confused the religious leaders of his day. He told three important stories to show the extent of his love for each and every person. What if, by studying these stories, we could see the value of the people in our lives just as Jesus taught?
You may not often think about it this way, but we are a powerful community. We have more potential, resources, and education than most communities in the world today or any other day in history. What if we could learn to more effectively use what God has given us to solve problems, meet needs, and open hearts to hope in Jesus? We’re going to learn about the journey of generosity we’re all on—not for ourselves, but for the world around us.
Whether you’ve been following Jesus for most of your life or you’re a skeptic trying to figure out if you want to begin the journey at all there’s a path of how we all grow in life. God has some unbelievable steps waiting for you in the journey you’re already on. We want to imagine together a future where we don’t trip over what’s in front of us but we learn to grow through and move beyond the obstacles to experience the greater future God has waiting.
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.
