chasing HUMILITY : What Is It?This week we kick-off the new 2022-2023 ministry year and we're pumped to have you be a part of it! As a church, we'll be spending this next ministry year on a chase...chasing something that might seem elusive, but it's completely worth the pursuit. This week's message focuses on WHAT Humility is and WHY we should choose it and 1 Peter 5 gives us some great insight!

3 of our Biggest Cultural IssuesOftentimes the ones we are the most honest with are those we live and do life with. Those, hopefully constructive, criticisms can be hard to hear sometimes, but did you know a healthy, thriving family is the best place to help guard your heart? They see us in a way we don't see ourselves. This week we wrap up our THRIVE family series as we uncover 3 of the biggest cultural issues we face today. We'll look for wisdom from God's Word to help our families THRIVE in our current culture as we seek to glorify Him in all things!
August 21, 2022

Parenting: Love God & Love Your KidsWhat is our goal with parenting? Do we work to bring glory to God or to ourselves? We may not always get it right, in fact, we certainly won't, but God's Word is our guiding force. This week we will be in Deuteronomy 6 to hear what God tells his people. It's not complicated, it's actually quite relieving to know what God commands and it will help us in all areas, not just parenting.
August 7, 2022

God is at WorkWe're finishing up our message series on 'living life on mission' and it's a wild ride as we 'set sail' with Paul through the Mediterranean! We'll be reminded through Acts 27 that God is at work in the storm, seeing it in Paul's experience and looking for Him in our 'storms' as well.
July 24, 2022
Wherever God Places UsThis week we encourage each other to keep living on mission as we look at Paul's example in Acts 18. No matter where God places each of us, we can be sure He has opportunities available for us...so let's gear up for victory!

March 20, 2022
It Will Not Be Stopped!Are you ready for some 'wind in your sails'? Could you use some encouragement to keep on?! We are in Acts 5, and are reminded of some encouraging truth - that we can be a part of something that WILL NOT BE STOPPED because our God has already overcome the enemy!

February 27, 2022
Witness, Praise & RepentWe usually have lots on our "to-do" lists or things we want to do or change, but what if we had something greater to focus on that would help everything else fall into it's right place?! As we look at Acts 3 on Sunday, we'll be reminded of what (or WHO) is the treasure, the focus, and the reason we can find peace, even when our to-do list is long!
February 20, 2022

February 13, 2022
Something NewWe all love new things. The look of new paint. The smell of a new car. The way new clothes fit. God does something new in Acts 2 that radically changed the world in which we live. As a matter of fact, this new thing He did is the reason our church is here today!
February 6, 2022
What We Do In The Waiting Moments of LifeWe're finishing up Acts 1 as we take a look at how to navigate those seasons in life when we're left waiting. It doesn't have to be wasted time if we are obedient to what God calls us to do!
January 30, 2022
Can I get a witness?We each have unique passions, yet there's one passion that should unite us as followers of Christ!

January 23, 2022
Living a Life of LoveWe're bound to deal with relationships where it is hard to love as Christ loves...but there is hope for the Christ-follower! God's perfect love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit. This week we'll look at Romans 12.9-21 and see the glory of His perfect love, dwelling in our hearts to not just love others, but be love in our relationships.
January 16, 2022
Misplaced RelianceOne of the difficult parts of a new year is the illusion that we just need to do more this year. If I just read my bible more, pray harder, attend church more often, be nicer (even though these are all good things) then things will be better. In reality, the only way to make 2022 better is more reliance upon God and His grace. We can't do anything apart from Him. Romans 12 shows us how to do this!
January 9, 2022
Renew Your MindWe encourage you to pick a word for the year, as well as scripture to go with it, & see how God uses it to grow & change you this year - for His glory! While we reset our focus for the year on our primary calling as followers of Christ - to live a life of WORSHIP - we'll read from Romans 12 and learn to spend our days for HIM!
January 2, 2022
Strength For A New YearAs we ring in 2022, we begin the year looking at a reality of the Kingdom Coming and some good news (as well as a warning) to help us tackle the year ahead - strengthened with His mighty power.
December 26, 2021
What is REAL Hope?The things of this earth, we have been promised in Revelation 21, will pass away - no more tears, no more pain, living in peace and harmony with each other - it just isn't something we can even fathom and it's hard to have hope in the midst of it all. But when we can focus our minds on real biblical hope - we will see things in a whole new light. We pray this week's message of TRUE HOPE will encourage you to set your mind on things above!
December 19, 2021
A Kingdom of PeaceIs PEACE really possible here on earth? What does PEACE actually mean? God's kingdom is a kingdom of PEACE. He desires for all who know Him to experience this PEACE. This week's message gives us practical tools to answer these questions and learn how to bring peace to our community as we share it with others.
December 12, 2021
Why JOY MattersJoy seems to be expected during this holiday season. But it is also something that can be incredibly difficult to have or show. We desire it so much but we lean into the wrong things to get it. This season we hope you find your JOY in Christ, that you rejoice in WHO he is and see that it is an important mark of our King!
December 5, 2021
When We Love One AnotherThis week we lift our eyes to the King and see a mark in Him that we can start making visible in our own lives. We'll be in 1 John 4.7-12 and are praying that we all will grow in our love for HIM, as well as our love for others.
November 28, 2021
A Day in the Life of JesusJesus sets a great example of what to do when life gets hard. We read through Matthew 14 this week in search of practical steps to help us through these difficult situations. There is no better mentor than Jesus himself and we pray it is an encouragement to you, as well!
November 21, 2021
Trouble Is Coming..Lift Up Your EyesThis Sunday is a special weekend for our church when we stop to think back over God's blessing over our church family and celebrate His goodness to us. We'll be walking through 2 Chronicles 20 to ignite our hearts in worship for our Lord.
November 14, 2021
Walk the New WalkIf you're ever discouraged when old actions or habits sneak back in to your life, let Ephesians 4.17-32 be an encouragement to you! We're reminded that to 'put off' our old self and 'put on' our new self, it isn't something we have to do in our power, but happens as we are made new in Christ.
November 7, 2021
Matured & UnifiedGod has created each one of us uniquely for HIS glory...and there's quite a variety! But even greater than the diversity, is the UNITY we have as the body of Christ. Our RESET message series helps us see the beauty of HIS church working together as we look at Ephesians 4.7-16.
October 31, 2021
Do You Know Your Calling?What a Sunday to celebrate together! We worshiped together around the truth in Ephesians 4.1-6 - seeing our calling as followers of Christ. We'll answer the question: Are we doing what we've been called to do?
October 24, 2021
How Wide & Long & High & DeepWe'll be focusing on a powerful prayer from Ephesians 3.14-21 and asking the Lord to light a fire within each of us for HIM! While every Sunday is an opportunity to celebrate and worship together, we are especially looking forward to what the Lord will do among us as we gather together this weekend to glorify HIS name.
October 17, 2021
Keep OnOur RESET message series through Ephesians is aimed at giving us a renewed passion to be HIS church, and this week's passage in chapter 3 gives us a great example to follow!
