I [Heart] the Church

Sermon Series: I [Heart] the Church - The joys of Christian community
September 19 - October 31

It's easy to dream about the "perfect" church. And it's just as easy to criticize the church when it isn't exactly the way you want it. But what if we learned to love the church, knowing that "Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her" (Eph 5:25)?

In this series, we will revisit the New Testament vision for biblical community and seek to recapture some of the most glorious privileges of being part of God's family – belonging, gathering, welcoming, caring, serving, and witnessing. Join us as we consider how we can love Jesus in greater and more meaningful ways through loving his beloved "bride."

Sermon Series: Entrusted - Faithfully Stewarding the Gifts of God
June 13 - August 8

Often when we talk about stewardship, our minds turn immediately to the context of money. But there is so much more to biblical stewardship than just money. God has entrusted each of us with varied gifts – be it our time, talents, or treasures. In this series, we are going to explore what it means to be a faithful steward of those God‐given resources and learn how to leverage them for His eternal purposes and glory.

Living Hope

Sermon Series: Living Hope - Sustaining words from the book of 1 Peter
March 7 - June 6

The past year has shown us that life often has a way of not turning out the way we want. Circumstances can rob us of peace and leave us with seemingly little hope. The Apostle Peter's encouragement to believers who were enduring persecution and suffering of all kinds is a timely reminder that we are merely strangers and sojourners in this world, and that our true home and glory is in heaven to come. Join us as we explore the book of 1 Peter and its message of sustaining hope for even the toughest of times.

Amazing Grace

Sermon Series: Amazing Grace - The Gospel according to Galatians
January 10 - Feburary 28

The word "gospel" refers to a message of good news. But what exactly is the good news of the Christian faith? Unlike other gospels that may have the appearance of truth but leave us empty in the end, the good news of the Bible is both life-giving and satisfying. For it is not based on what we have done for God, but on faith in what God has done for us through Christ. Join us as we explore the Book of Galatians and discover what makes God’s grace so amazing.

Sermon Series - Life Hacks

Sermon Series: Life Hacks - Wisdom for Life from Proverbs
September 6 - November 29

Every day of our lives, we make decisions large and small, complex and simple. Many decisions involve choosing between different options that are morally permissible. And so, the question is not so much which is the "right" choice, but rather, which is the "wise" choice. The wisdom of Proverbs goes beyond right and wrong. It illuminates for us which choice is most Godhonoring and beneficial to ourselves in every season of our lives.

Sermon Series - God of the Broken

Sermon Series: Parables of the Kingdom
February 2 - June 28

Jesus often used parables to simplify profound spiritual truths. He told stories from the everyday that use things that we can see to show us bigger truths that we can't see about God, ourselves, and others. His parables are designed to draw us from hearing to understanding to repentance. Expect to revolutionize your perspective on the gospel, grace, and life in the kingdom of God as we delve into the Lord’s teachings.
