Daddy Issues

DADDY ISSUES

Dads—we all have one. For some of us, our dad made us laugh, cry, feel secure and put on our big boy pants and get to school. Others of us missed out on knowing our dad. For better or worse, our relationship with our father influences our relationship with God.

Join us Sundays, August 28 – September 11 as we explore how to find a better image of God.

How To Thrive In A Hostile World

In this time of escalating violence, trauma, and racial tension, it seems we live in an ever-increasing hostile culture. Through the rising tensions from the terrible race-related violence, to the volatile political climate, and on-going global unrest, we sit back and wonder, “Where is the hope?” “Can it really get any better?”

God loves everyone and wants us to do the same. When we take a look at creation we get a glimpse of God’s creativity and passion for color and diversity in the world. He wants his church and the world to reflect that diversity. God has a hope and a dream for you, even in the midst of the hostility.

Join us August 7, 14 & 21.

Week 494 // August 7, 2016 // Avoiding the Election Infection

In case you haven’t noticed, the political scene is heating up. Politics is not an emotionally neutral topic. It has the power to divide us instead of bring us together. What would it look like if Christians filtered their politics through their faith rather than filtering their faith through their politics?

Love Dare WK3 Homework

Read the following from Philippians 2:3-8 each day this week and then reflect on the questions below.  

Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.

In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness.  

And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death — even death on a cross!

– Philippians 2:3-8

REFLECTION

God’s word is amazing in that it speaks to us in different ways every time we read it.
Take a few minutes to reflect on one of the following categories of questions each day, adding to your previous day’s reflections.

MARRIED: For those who are married:

  1. Where did I express servanthood and mutual submission toward my spouse today? What do I need to do different tomorrow?
  2. Where did my spouse express this servanthood and mutual submission to me today?

SINGLE: For those what are single, students, or single again:

  1. What would a future relationship look like if my spouse and I lived out Philippians 2:3-8 every day?
  2. What is something I feel God is nudging me to do tomorrow to grow in servanthood (serving others)?

Love Dare

We all know what’s required to fall in love. (A pulse.) Falling in love is easy. But staying there? That’s something else entirely.

“Online Dating Magazine” estimates that there are over 2,500 matchmaker organizations in the United States. Finding someone is easier than ever, but staying together seems to get more difficult every day.

So, is it possible for two people to fall in love and actually stay there?

Absolutely.

Join us over these next 6 weeks, as we do a deep dive into something that could perhaps, change the trajectory of your love…. and your life.

As always, there will be friendly folks, free coffee and easy exits if you change your mind.

SAY “I DO”… AGAIN

Vow Renewals June 5 – 9:30 & 11:00am

Couples choose to renew their vows for a variety of reasons. Renewing your vows doesn’t mean that the vows you took on your wedding day weren’t meaningful, but it can serve as a reminder of what your commitment to one another really means.

Whether you are desiring to re-affirm your love to your spouse, celebrating a marriage milestone, you have survived an experience that tested your marriage, or want to re-affirm your vows based on new understandings of God’s foundation for your marriage, vow renewal can be a powerful experience and affirmation of your love for one another.

On Sunday, June 5, 2016, husbands & wives will have the opportunity to affirm their love for one another in a special ceremony at either the  9:30am or 11:00am service, as we conclude the Love Dare teaching series.

Starting Point

Everything that exists had a starting point . . . including you. You may have started on purpose. You may have started by accident (from your parent’s perspective). You may even have started through the magic of medical science. Whatever the circumstances, you had a starting point and it began before you were aware of it.

Physical life is one of many starting points. Your formal education had a starting point. Your career had a starting point. Your romantic life had a starting point. Your experience as a parent had a starting point.

Faith has a starting point as well.

Join us Sunday April 3-24 as we explore where to start.

Week 476 // April 03, 2016 // Everything Has a Beginning

During childhood, you may have been handed a faith framework through which you began to view the world. For a lot of us, that childhood framework didn’t survive the rigors of adulthood. It’s not enough to say, “The Bible says…,” in the face of real-life tragedy. Adults often need a new starting point. But the starting point for Christian faith isn’t, “The Bible says…” It’s better than that. It’s Jesus.

Week 477 // April 10, 2016 // The Problem

Guilt is powerful. Shame can be crippling. We all have things in our pasts that haunt us. We have sin.

It only takes a word, a picture, or a name to bring it all back. We know we can do better from this point forward, but how are we supposed to fix the past? We can say we’re sorry. We can ask for forgiveness. But some of the things we’ve done hang over our lives like a cloud.

What can wash away our sins?

Week 478 // April 17, 2016 // Trust

The three largest faith traditions—Judaism, Islam, and Christianity—claim the same starting point: a man named Abraham.

All three agree that sin made a mess of the world and God started his clean up operation with Abraham.

God made a series of promises and Abraham’s response to those promises didn’t just have implications for his personal starting point or the starting points of Judaism, Islam, and Christianity. It had implications for your starting point as well.

Easter 2016

Easter

You’ve probably heard the basics about the Easter story: Jewish guy with a sweet beard dies 2,000 years ago and comes back to life.

But what does that have to do with you?

No matter who we are and how hard we try, we sometimes break things and make a mess.

We hide stuff, strive for stuff, try to elbow-grease-fix stuff. But because that bearded man lived on the earth and loves us all, everything that is broken gets pulled back together.

Bring the family (and some friends) together this Easter for an experience that connects you personally to the Easter story in a fresh new way. You’re gonna love this. You’ll find friendly people, great coffee, dim lights and easy exits if you change your mind.
