B-List Christmas

B-List Christmas

November 2014 Sermon Series

Our nativity sets are full of Christmas characters we all know and love. Meanwhile, the people on the edges of the Christmas story are left to live in the shadows. This year we will let the lesser known stars shine and see what they have to teach us about the meaning of Christmas.

The Talk

The Talk

October 2014 Sermon Series

I think it's time we talk. Sex is something all of us think about but few of us talk about. Whether it’s pre-marital sex, same-sex relationships, or boundaries in our relationships, these topics are actually something scripture can address. In this series, we will look at the intersection of faith and sex, and answer some of the questions that all of us ask, but few of us discuss.

Chain Reaction

Chain Reaction

September 2014 Sermon Series

The Movement Continues... One year ago we launched Chain Reaction with the goal of lifting up the practice of generosity, casting vision for the future, and raising money to help fund the future of our church. We did this with the conviction that when we practice generosity, God changes our lives and does big things in our world. In this series, we will celebrate the impact Chain Reaction has made so far, look forward to the future, and invite more people to join the movement.

Breaking Up With Yourself

Breaking Up With Yourself

September 2014 Sermon Series

We should talk… This has been great but… We want different things… Maybe we should see other people… It’s not me… It’s you. Wait. What? Jesus calls us to a life of service, but as human beings, we have a hard time wrapping our heads around how to stop thinking of ourselves first and to live outwardly. Join us for a four week series that examines the practice of service: what it is, what it looks like, and why we do it.

Let’s Get Skeptical

Let’s Get Skeptical

August 2014 Sermon Series

Can we trust the Bible? Does God really have a plan? Aren’t science and religion incompatible? We all have the voice of a skeptic inside us. We try to ignore the hard questions and often judge others for asking them, because we are afraid they might discredit our faith. In this series, we will engage our inner skeptic and ask the hard questions. Come and hear what the Bible has to say when we get skeptical.

Silver Linings

Silver Linings

July 2014 Sermon Series

There’s always a silver lining,” or so they say. But what if that is true? What if there is always a silver lining? We just have to be willing to find it. God has created us with the potential for a life overflowing with joy and scripture shows us that we can look past our circumstances and embrace the fullness of a life that is overflowing with joy. Join us as we look at Paul’s letter to the Philippians for a master class in the art of crafting contentment.

Join for a new four-week series as we look to Him and discover how to respond in desperate times.
