Growing in Unity

Here we will discover that true Christian unity is not created by people – it is created by God Himself. Therefore, it is radically different from anything the world has to offer. It is possible for people to passionately unite around a cause, and even be effective. But true Christian unity is not built around a cause; it is centered …

Glorify God / Peacemaking

The Peacemaking message given by Jesus and His disciples is resoundingly clear: Whether our conflicts are minor irritations or major legal issues, God is eager to display His love and power through us as we strive to maintain peace with those around us. Therefore, peacemaking is not optional for those who follow Christ. He wants us to strive earnestly, diligently, and continually to maintain …

WORSHIP PANEL

In our modern culture, corporate singing (often highly emotive and passionate) can feel strange. To someone with no church background, it can even aesthetically look cultish at first glance. The counterbalance is that worship (as practiced by modern Christians) if done genuinely, has a human magnetism to it. A strange curiosity almost always emerges in the person experiencing it for …

Everyday Worship

Worship! What feelings does this word evoke when you hear it? If this elicits a feeling of boredom to you, then, as N.T. Wright puts it, “it shows how impoverished our idea of worship has become.” Next Sunday Pastor Terry begins the new teaching series: Worship! as he explores what it means to be a true worshiper of God, the …

Santa and the Christ Child

In a special Family Worship Service, Pastor Terry will combine the two major symbols of Christmas – the Christ Child and Santa Claus – and discover their proper relationship. With Christmas Carols being sung – the celebration of Advent – and the Christmas Legend, Santa and the Christ Child being read – it will be another moment of Seeing the …

O Christmas Tree

Can you believe it?! We begin our Christmas teaching series: Seeing the Sacred. Through this series we will be taking a serious, yet joyful look at various Symbols of Christmas, looking at them through the lens of our Christian faith. Pastor Terry will lead off this series talking about the symbol of the Christmas Tree / Wreath, and its significance.  

BODY

Having lived, died, risen again, and poured out his Spirit on us, God is now in a position to really carry out his plan for humanity. God’s people, saved and continually sanctified, can truly live into their mission—representing God in the world as one cohesive Body. Next Sunday Pastor Ryan will dive into how this Body is supposed to work, …

SPIRIT

What should come as no surprise is that our Christian experience of holiness is simply life under the Lordship of Jesus Christ – in the power and purity of the Holy Spirit. Next Sunday Pastor Terry will look at what God’s Word says about our sanctification – to make holy or sacred – to set apart – to be forgiven …

RESURRECTION

Without the RESURRECTION, Jesus becomes merely another Jewish teacher with some good ideas. Next Sunday Pastor Terry will look at the Gospel of John 20, to show both the historicity of Jesus’ RESURRECTION, and the LIFE it brings. For if it is not true, then as the Apostle Paul put it so well in 1 Corinthians 15:14: “If Christ has …

Our Mission & Core Values

This Sunday we will look at an outline of the church that will focus our attention on three important aspects for a healthy church family: Community, Cause, and Corporation. Now ideally, the church needs balance in all three areas, for we know that the consequences are high when the church is out of balance. And we want to be this …
