What controls you, rules you. We so often settle for lesser gods and heroes. The Old Testament book of Judges tells the story of people trying to live their lives without the truth, grace, and power of their loving God. Join us this summer to find out what happens when everyone does what is right in their own eyes. Spoiler Alert: it isn't pretty!
Follow the stories of six people who are seeking to live out their faith in the everyday of their ordinary lives. We'll hear from people in our faith community who are pursing new life by following Jesus, welcoming everyone, and loving all.
Most of us want to influence the people around us. We want to make a positive difference in our families, workplaces, schools, and communities. Jesus was able to change the lives of those around Him because He practiced spiritual training. As we follow Jesus, we will engage in these training habits as well.
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.
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.
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.
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.
