Our vision, pursuing new life together in Jesus, means we follow Jesus, welcome everyone, and love all. It is a vision that keeps us connected to our Lord, creating a place of belonging for all people, and expressing love in practical ways in our backyard and around the world.
Life is full of tension. Many times this tension appears when our beliefs clash with our broken culture and world. If you are seeking to live in authenticity then you will need to consider the tensions that challenge how we live out our faith.
Jason Heppner, Student Ministries Pastor and Nate Severson, Community Life Pastor team teach about how something incredible happens when we start seeing people the way Jesus sees them.
Jesus is the best gift of Christmas! During Advent we will embrace Jesus as the Word, Servant, Friend, Savior, and Child that we are waiting for. He changes things in our lives, and He is the gift that we share with our neighbors and friends.
When we bring our time, talent, and treasure together with others pursuing new life in Jesus, transformation can happen in our neighborhood, our church, and our world.
Each of us is invited to become part of the Kingdom of Heaven, the Kingdom that Jesus spoke about often. This Kingdom is active right now, yet not in its fullness. Every day we can decide to be part of the Kingdom finding real expression and movement in our lives and the lives of those around us. God's Kingdom is God's people in God's place under God's rule.
Finding mental stability is a daily struggle for most of us. Our moods and emotions are untrustworthy guides to the inner peace we seek. Maintaining mental health includes anchoring our identity to Jesus, actively entrusting God with our lives, connecting to healthy/loving people, growing our capacity for hope, and seeking the healing work of the Spirit.
Living the life God invites us into requires wisdom. Each day we make choices that are either wise or foolish. How you choose matters. This summer we'll focus on wisdom and what God has to say about it.
What does Jesus' love look like when we live it out? We'll explore how to follow Jesus into stronger friendships, stronger families, and stronger marriages.
Who did Jesus say he was and what does it mean to us today?
