THIS IS REAL. THIS IS LIFE. THIS IS US.
Christmas at the MoviesWe're excited about our 4-week series, CHRISTMAS AT THE MOVIES, where we’re featuring four classic holiday movies that will help to prepare for Christmas in a fun, enlightening, and memorable way!
Want to know what the movies are? You'll have to wait for each weekend to find out!
Dear GodWhen the disciples asked Jesus how they should pray, He talked about simple words and humble attitudes, checking the fluff, pretense, and ego at the door. In The Lord’s Prayer, Jesus gives us all a perfect model for talking to God that aligns our hearts with His heart.
Prayer is about real answers to real questions. And when we say Dear God, He is listening.
Three ChairsBased on Dr. Bruce Wilkinson's book "Experiencing Spiritual Breakthroughs: The Powerful Principle of the Three Chairs," Pastor Tim shows how, even in middle of the morally challenging culture that surrounds us, a passionate and fulfilling relationship with God is not only possible, it is something that we can have in our lives every single day.
Join us as we talk about the three chairs, and what they can teach us about living the life of our dreams.
Fixer UpperDo you ever feel like your life is in need of some relationship rehab? We’re not talking total demolition here. After all, you’re completely loved by the God who made you. And for the most part, your friends and family are people you dearly love. But a little relationship renovation can go a long way toward helping you live the life you were meant to live.
As we begin the new year with a fresh start, let’s get together and talk about making the changes that matter most.
It's Your Soul, ManWhen is the last time you thought about the state of your soul? The health of your soul isn't just a matter of being a Christ-follower or not. It's the difference between a deeply satisfying relationship with God and a restless, dispassionate faith.
During this 5-week series, we’re going to challenge you a bit. Being the keeper of a soul isn’t an easy job, but apparently God trusts us more than we trust ourselves because He’s given us that job to do.
Rumor Has ItHave you noticed that there's a lot of buzz about churches these days, especially large ones like ours? Questions like “Does the Church just want my money?” Or “Is it really just about the numbers and the church just wants to get big?” Or “What’s with all the lights and smoke – is this just one big show?”
Well, the best thing to do with rumors is to take them head on and that’s what we’re going to do.
Risk ItIt’s been said that to live without risk is to risk not living, and there’s so much truth in that statement. When we play it safe in life and don’t risk taking that step of faith, there’s no way we can be everything God has designed us to be.
So for four weeks we’re going to talk about the value of taking risks and how that looks in our everyday lives, with God and with each other.
Broken ChainsIn Broken Chains, Pastor Tim did a live interview with Cody Huff, who has one of the amazing stories included by Lee Strobel in his latest book, "The Case for Grace."
Cody’s story includes crime, homelessness, drug addiction, and the lowest point of digging through dumpsters for scraps of food. Just when he felt that he was beyond hope, a local church reached out with a shower, a hug, and the love of Jesus, and Cody went from hopeless to hope-filled.
Please enjoy this miraculous story of the transforming power of God’s love and grace.
Jesus MisplacedIt's an interesting thought, right? Jesus misplaced. Jesus mis-placed.
The religious leaders sure thought he was. What was this up-and-coming Rabbi who wowed them with his preaching in the synagogue when he was just 12 years old doing hanging out "there" with "them"?
They thought Jesus was always at the wrong place with the wrong people.But Jesus was never misplaced. He was exactly where He wanted and needed to be. And that place is no different for us.
Loving people where they are. Having fun with people where they are. Sharing life with people - exactly where they are.
White Flag (Easter Service)In today's high-pressure, ultra-competitive, fast-paced culture, it's easy to believe that winning is everything. That if you come in second, you're simply the first loser. Win at all costs. Never surrender.
That's why Easter can be difficult to understand. Because Easter is all about surrender. God surrendered His Son and Jesus surrendered His life. Willingly. Graciously. Compassionately. Selflessly. Lovingly.
As the cross and the empty tomb perfectly demonstrate, the only way to win in every way that counts is to wave the white flag. Jesus surrendered everything for us, and He invites us to trust everything to Him.
The God I Wish You KnewOne of the most frustrating things for many Christians is to hear the way the world sometimes views our God. Words like judgmental, vengeful, angry, distant, uncaring, and unfair come to mind. Kind of like Bruce in the movie Bruce Almighty, who viewed himself as an ant, and viewed God as a mean kid sitting on an anthill with a magnifying glass...burning off his feelers and watching him squirm.
It is so sad that many of these misconceptions about God keep people from finding His love, grace, mercy, and the incredible things that can happen in their lives when they have a relationship with Him.
During this series, we will be debunking all the myths and introducing you to The God I Wish You Knew.
How To Wreck Your LifeNobody plans for it to happen. Nobody wakes up one morning and thinks, "Hmmm...I wonder how I can wreck my life today." But plan it or not, relationship troubles, harmful, addictive behaviors, and cutting God out of our lives can leave us in a mess, looking around at the wreckage and wondering, "How in the world did I end up here!?!"
The path to a totally wrecked life is shockingly easy unless you know the signs to watch for. But no matter how wrecked you are, there is ALWAYS hope.
