Exercise Your Spiritual Muscles

If the church ever appears weak or flimsy, it is likely because we as its members have not been exercising our spiritual muscles! God has given us a Spirit of power and love and self discipline, we don’t always use the gifts He has given us. Join us as we explore spiritual gifts and receive a call to put them to good use.

Accept One Another

Many of us have become so quick to judge others in our hearts and minds that we don’t even notice that we do it anymore. The Apostle Paul, in Romans 14, calls us to something different as we deal with one another and as we made decisions about our own actions. Join us as we explore these important habits that will help us to be healthy Christians.




Prepare for Battle

In order for us to be healthy in any area of life, there are certain habits we have to adopt; the same is true when it comes to faith. Today we look at 2 Kings 6-7 to see that if we want to have or keep our spiritual health we’ve got to remember that we are in a battle and that the battle is the Lord’s.  




Replenishing Rest

One of the most significant drawbacks of having the ability to be connected to the world around us 24 hours a day is how that lifestyle robs us of rest, both physically and spiritually. If you ever have found yourself feeling exhausted and like you don’t own your devices but rather they own you, this message is for you.




Resurrecting Compassion

We have become so inundated by news and media and so focused on ourselves that true compassion is hard to find. Join us as we call out some of the reasons why this is true and learn what true compassion looks like from the life of Jesus.




Revealing Authenticity

Authenticity is hard to come by these days. We all are tempted to only show the world around us what we want them to see. The problem is that those superficial coverings in time turn into spiritual conditions, which we need to address. Join us for this study in 2 Corinthians 3 and through Christ the veil will be lifted!

Restoring Intimacy

Though technology and social media can help us in small ways in our relationships, they also have the potential to do major damage. They are changing the way that a generation is looking at relationships, which is completely different from the kind of intimacy that Jesus both demonstrated and asked us to show.




Recovering Contentment

In a world full of personal struggles that are perpetuated by social media, how do we live as authentic followers of Jesus? We begin answering that question today by looking at Philippians 4 and considering the secret to contentment.




Political Relations

In this season of heightened political tension, how do we as Christians respond? What are our responsibilities and what do we need to steer clear of? Join us as we use some advice from John Wesley as a framework in considering these questions and more.




Gender Relations

This message deals with the final distinction the Apostle Paul made in Galatians 3:28, noting that in Christ we are neither male nor female. What does this mean and how might it apply to our lives?




August 2016

Socioeconomic Relations

In his New Testament letter, James challenges us to consider whether or not we are likely to show favoritism to people based on their socioeconomic status. Do we give preference to those who have a higher place in society due to their finances? What does God really think about that? We’ll consider these questions and more in this study.




Race Relations

There are many barriers we create among people when we focus on our differences instead of what unites us through our faith in Christ. Join us in a study of Galatians 3 and Luke 10 as we consider how we allow race to divide us when we need to come together most.




Making Disciples

One of the most famous statements of Jesus comes in Matthew 28, where He commissions His disciples (and therefore, us), to go and make disciples. But how? How do we use our stories to influence others? Join us for a three-step model that will lead us in to prayer, care, and sharing the gospel.

Ambassadors of Christ

As those who have been reconciled to God through Christ, we now have the privilege of being Christ’s ambassadors to a dying world. Join us as we consider using our personal stories with the story of the gospel to impact eternity.




Power to Overcome

What if we lived in the power of the Holy Spirit that lives inside of us? This is a question we try to address through a study of the first half of Acts 2.




The Spirit of Peace

How do we find peace in the midst of tumultuous circumstances? How can we experience peace on the inside when we our physical, spiritual, emotional and financial worlds are being attacked from the outside? Jesus both teaches us and shows us the way.




Breathing New Life

The book of Ezekiel gives us many images of the Spirit of God moving among His people, including how He moves as breath, breathing new life into dead places.




June 2016

Counselor

Join us for this introduction to our series and the study of John 16:5-15 as we get to know the Holy Spirit. In this passage, Jesus introduces His disciples to the Spirit as One who will serve them in the role of a counselor.




Love Mercy

We all take opportunities in our lives to demonstrate mercy, but is it the cry of our hearts? What is our attitude toward mercy? We’ll tackle these questions and more as we explore the second part of Micah 6:8.




Act Justly – The Pharisees

We being our new series, which is inspired by Micah 6:8, by understanding from the example of the Pharisees what it means to act justly. Like the Israelites of Micah’s day, the Pharisees were quick to offer religious gestures, but their hearts were not in it. God is calling us to something more.
