Pursuit - 03
If you don't pursue, you'll drift.  Ps. Kelsey Lasher teaches us that maintaining our pursuit of Christ requires us to carefully remember who he is, what he's done, and why we pursue him.  Otherwise, we will drift away.

Pursuit - 02
Our culture has a superiority complex.  Our pride and self-righteousness can even make us think that our own opinions are the highest authorities.  But what if there is someone who already has the superior name, position, power, and authority?  This is exactly what we learn about Jesus in the Book of Hebrews.  Pastor Tyler Zabor gives this week's message on the amazing authority that Jesus has.

Pursuit - 01
Is there a disconnect between your goals and your habits?  All too often, the way we live our lives doesn't match up with what we're pursuing.  In the first message in our new series, Ps. Ike challenges us to remember that Jesus is Lord, and today is the day to start pursuing him.

True Love - God First
Myth #1 - Christianity is prudish about sex.  Myth #2 - Christianity is anti-singleness.  Ps. Ike Shepardson takes us into 1 Corinthians 7 to explain that sex is deeply affirmed in the Bible.  But no matter what our relationship status is, we need to put God first.

True Love - The Story of Marriage
This is NOT a self-help sermon.  Instead, Ps. Ike Shepardson challenges us that what we believe about marriage impacts what we believe about what it means to be human, how things went wrong in our world, and how they can be made right again.

True Love - You Love Me THIS Much?
Love isn't quite what you think it is.  Ps. Scott Lasher explains that our culture's view of love is lacking, but when we start to understand the character of God, it leads us into practicing a revolutionary love for God, the self, and others.

Culture - Belonging in Community Part 1
Jesus’ radical way of life left others around him in a kind of culture shock. And it has to do with his radical inclusion. Ps. Ike shows how Jesus embodies radical inclusion for those who are radically far from God.

Culture - Encountering God Part 2
Ps. Kelsey Shepardson teaches us that we serve a God who feels as deeply as we do, a God who experienced loss and heartbreak. Although Jesus has the ability to heal and overcome our pain, he is not indifferent or impervious to it. You're invited to meet the God who raises the dead to life.

Culture - Encountering God Part 1
What does a lifestyle of following Jesus look like? What does it mean to be part of God's culture? Ps. Ike challenges us that living in God's culture means being passionate about the truth, and since Jesus claimed to be God, we need to live in accordance with the truth about who Jesus is. We are invited to encounter God in Jesus.

A HOPE TO LIVE FOR
When people think about religion, they often think about rules that you have to obey to be acceptable. However, the picture in the Bible is that we have access to Jesus because of what He has already done on our behalf. Ps. Scott shares about how we can be close to Jesus now because Jesus has chosen to be with us. He is with us now, has always been with us, and will always be with us.

A COMMUNITY OF HOPE
As humans, we were designed to belong, connect, and grow in relationship with one another and with God. Ps. Tyler teaches that although we live in a time that is corrosive to life in community, the church offers the world a community of hope and an outpost for the lonely. Christ’s work on the cross radically changes our relationship to God as well as one another.
