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.
If it were up to us we would live on the mountaintop every day of our lives. The problem is that growth happens in the valleys. We might not choose to go there but we don’t have to go there alone. Learn from someone who learned to live with peace even when things weren’t so peaceful.
Every now and then we have weeks that stand alone in their messaging and content.
The Gospel is for Everyone
Freed People Find People
We live in the information age. We have access to all available knowledge. Whatever you want to know is at your fingertips, yet we struggle to understand how life works. How do we move from knowledge to wisdom? How do we make wise decisions?
Knowledge is manpower. Wisdom is Godpower.
-YOUR BEST SUMMER NOW-
will be a journey to explore insights from God’s Word for the most practical and important parts of your life.
Traveling through life is not always easy and we pick up lots of baggage along the way. Sometimes it feels like our past is hanging around our neck as we try to get free so that we can focus on the future. What if God knew this kind of problem existed and created a solution that didn’t ignore our baggage but used it for an even brighter future?
Religion is stuffy, stale and impossible. The teachings of one renegade two thousand years ago unlock a faith that is so freeing, so fulfilling and so true; it can change your eternity.
We looked at the story of the Prodigal Son in Luke 15. This story has lessons about judgement, grace, resentment, and forgiveness-- things that we can probably all relate to.
It seems like change is inevitable in our personal lives, in our families and even at church. The great news is that God knows the changes before we do and the Bible has help for all of us as we experience them.
No matter what that awkward family photo says about your family you know that it is unique and built by God for something greater than routine. We all experience the challenges that come from trying to survive day to day but what if there was a way to live that offered a greater hope for tomorrow?
Sometimes we celebrate advent or observe it but what does it look like to Be Advent? The central truth of Christmas is that Jesus became one of us so that we could know Him and make Him known. The hope of that relationship is something we can share uniquely at this season with our friends, family and neighbors.
