Cross the Divide

It is obvious that we live in a divided world. It’s divided across lines of race, politics, ideology, socio-economics, and much more. The power of the cross of Christ transcends these divisions, and creates a new community, a new path forward, and a new way to follow Jesus by crossing that divide. That’s what this series is about, and that’s why you’re going to want to tune in!

The Story

The Story

The Bible portrays itself as one story and in fact, as the one true story of the world. Not just your truth or my truth, but it is the truth for all of the world. And it all points to Jesus. It invites us to put aside our stories, and to live its story instead. It's our real story anyway.

Generous God, Generous People

Generous God, Generous People

God so loved, that he gave. This is the basic pattern of faith, life, generosity - of God - that we read in Scripture. Above all else, God is a generous God. We see this when we reflect on the fact that God gave his only Son to be born a human baby on that very first Christmas. Our calling, in light of Christmas, is to be a generous people as we follow after God's generosity. So let's learn to be generous together!

In All the Wrong Places

In All the Wrong Places

Deep in our bones, we know we're made for something more. We reach for it. We long for it. We struggle for it. We spend our lives looking for it. The problem is we tend to look for it in all the wrong places. This series will explore what we are made for, where we go to find it, why it goes so wrong, and where the right place to look truly is.

This Then Is How You Should Pray

How should we pray? Good question. It's a question that, whether we know it or not, we all could use a good answer to. Thankfully, Jesus gives us an answer. It's called the Lord's Prayer, and it is an amazing guide for how we can pray. That's what we'll explore in this series!

Snapshots of Jesus

Snapshots of Jesus

When you get a good look at Jesus, it's hard to not want to follow him. In this series, we hope to do just that: give you a good look at Jesus through individual snapshots from his life. Maybe you'll see him in a way you never have. Maybe you'll see what you need to see in him to have faith. Maybe you'll see what in him what changes your life forever. Take a look.
