Indoor dining, indoor worship, crowded beaches, lessening restrictions, increased social interaction. After a dizzying fourteen months of disruption, we find ourselves slowly and to varying degrees, returning to the life we once knew, returning to the familiar.
In Luke 15, Jesus tells a story about a son who, after radically disrupting his own life by leaving his family and home, decides to return to the life he once knew, to the familiar. But what will his father’s reaction be? Will he be welcomed? Will things be like they were before?
This is a series about God – who He is and the invitation to find our true home in life with Him.
In this message, we wrap up our series on "Coming Home" to God in the parable of the prodigal son...but this week, focusing on the older son. How are we like him? Will we accept the father's invitation to come home and celebrate? What might that look like for you?

In Luke 15, Jesus tells a story about a young man who runs away, only to find that what he was searching for was at home with his father all along. But will he be welcomed home? Find out in today's kickoff to "Coming Home"!
