Wonderful Counselor

September 10th-October 1st, 2017

Long before Jesus was born the prophet of old said he would be called “wonderful counselor”.  A wonderful counselor is good at listening and asking great questions that help us.  In this series we are looking at the great questions Jesus asked that helps us understand ourselves.  In this series Jesus asks us, "Why are you so afraid?”, "Do you believe that I am able to do this?”, "Do you want to get well?”, and "Why do you doubt?"

A Way Out

JULY 16TH-AUGUST 6TH, 2017

Temptation is the seductive little voice that twists what you want into what you need. It distorts your thoughts until you’re trapped—and when you’re trapped by temptation, it’s not the time to listen to yourself. Learn to put your trust in someone who knows A Way Out. God always gives us a way out.

Go. READY. Set.

June 25th-July 9th, 2017

Jesus says my priority is not religion, or ritual. My priority is rescue! My mission statement is this: I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners. I am more interested in rescuing than in anything else!  

Jesus extends the invitation to you. Will you take a baby step to follow him? He isn’t telling you to fix it first. Jesus is saying very clearly, “I want you to know, you are the one I’ve come to invite. I came for you. Will you follow me?” This is an invitation to a relationship.

AWE

April 23rd-May 7th, 2017

Religion is about God. It is second hand and is mediated through another. We are wired for more. Relationship on the other hand is intimate and is about knowing God personally, directly, and experiencing him in awesome ways. We are meant to be in relationship with God.

I WANT TO BELIEVe, BUT...

March 5th-26th, 2017

Believing in God is not always an easy thing. When God doesn't act in the ways that we expect Him to, it can be discouraging, confusing, and painful. Sometimes it can shake our faith in significant ways. In this series, we address some of those ideas and talk about how to move forward when we face those moments and how to develop a healthy understanding of God's character.

Three Keys

February 12th-26th, 2017

Joyful New Year

January 1st-February 5th, 2017

There is a big difference between the definition of "Happy" which is based on happenstance, whatever happens to you, and "Joyful," which is not based on happenstance but upon our ability to approach life through the tools that God has given us to see our circumstances through a new lens. This series is about hope for the future even when you feel anything other than hopeful.

Simplify
