Fruitful Surrender: As we close out our summer series on Jesus’ parables, we’re faced with a sobering choice. In light of Christ’s sovereignty over all things, we get to choose whether or not we will flourish or wither away. We can choose to be broken and built up, or we can choose a route that […]
Faithful, Foes, Fakers: As follows of Christ, we are living in a very interesting time. We live life hopefully knowing that Christ has defeated the enemy, but we wait for His glorious return. The question we have to answer is – what does God call us to do during this interim season?
Saved by Jesus not self!: Join us this week in Luke 18 as we dive into the parable of the tax collector and the pharisee. It can be easy for any of us to fall into the trap of thinking we are safe because of what we do. We read our bibles, we give to […]
Don’t Give Up Praying!: What keeps you motivated to pray even when it seems like God is silent? Some of us give up eventually, exhausted and discouraged, but still some of us keep going day after day. Why do those people stick with it? How can we stay motivated when our prayers seem pointless?

When The Lost Are Found: Everyone has something or someone that’s incredibly near and dear to their heart. We’ve all been there, too, when that treasured thing seems to disappear right out from under us!

Room at the Table: Have you ever been invited to a party that you just didn’t want to go to? What kind of excuse did you make to get out of the invitation? Work? Family? The truth is, we have all been invited to the most glorious of banquets. There is room at the table […]
