The Audacity of Jesus – Fall Life Groups

The teachings of Jesus, the miracles he performed and his impeccable character are enough to set him apart. But there is something about the way that he lived among and interacted with people that was bold and edgy… He answered people’s questions with a question, He cared for people that society rejected, He wasn’t afraid to speak the truth or upset the establishment, he left a veil of mystery that drove some people away and drew others closer. We’d like…

Spring Teaching Series

Who are your neighbors? More than the people on the other side of our fences, neighbors are those we rub shoulders with every day, from our commute to the office, to the playground, the café, or the gym. Each one is loved by God—and each of us can neighbor with love. How do we neighbor? That may be the harder question. We love our neighbors when we ask not how should they live—but what do they need. Dig in to…

Baptism

In Mark 8:34-35, Jesus says, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me and for the gospel will save it.” Baptism is the way Jesus gave us to express our whole-hearted commitment to follow him and enter into a relationship with God. If you or one of your children is ready to make that…
