The Power of One in a Fractured World
SEPTEMBER 13 – OCTOBER 4
In a world of increasing division and conflict, Jesus’ prayer for His Followers to be one is more important than ever. Politics, race relations, socio-economic and differences in personality, passions and gifts threaten the church like never before. Can we have unity without uniformity? Jesus thought so and prayed for you and me for such a time as this. It’s our time and place to show the world what is possible because of Jesus and His love!
Different Politics – One Kingdom
Different Races – One Family
Different Classes – One Body
Different Gifts – One Mission
SERIES CONCLUDES SUNDAY!
AUGUST 2 – SEPTEMBER 6
How are you staying positive during the pandemic?
Is anyone else sick and tired of all the negativity which surrounds us these days? Anytime you turn on the news, click on a news app, or engage in social media you get quickly sucked into streams of bad news and a gloom and doom mentality. You know the headlines: “More people getting sick and testing positive for Covid 19” “Jobs are vanishing” “The economy is on life support” “Our nation is more divided than it ever has been” “We’re facing another civil war” “Emotional damage from Covid on the rise” “Schools scrambling to figure out the new school year” “Churches face months of waiting before being able to gather on Sundays again” “Many of the places people want to go and things they want to do, are closed and canceled for the foreseeable future”
Where do we turn to in the midst of such negative news and hopelessness?
Join us online this Sunday as we begin a six week series called, “Stay Positive”. The answer to the question, “Where do we turn to in the midst of such negative news and hopelessness?” is, we turn to God. We turn to His word. We turn to those who are finding their joy and purpose even in the midst of a pandemic.
Here’s our summer teaching schedule for the series we’re calling “Stay Positive”:
8/2 I’m Optimistic
8/9 I’m Grateful
8/16 I’m Encouraging
8/23 I’m Generous
8/30 I’m Enthusiastic
9/6 I’m Confident
We’re working really hard on the messages, media, and music for this relevant and much needed series. It’s the kind of stuff you’d be proud to invite your friends and family to watch with you online or through a watch party.
It all starts this Sunday. Check it out here at our watch page, on facebook or on our YouTube Channel.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Yeah, we know how important a good-tasting cup of java is. Before and after each worship experience, we serve high-quality, environmentally-friendly coffees, and beverages that are both free and taste good! And get this – you are welcome to bring them with you into the worship experience! So, come a little early and grab a beverage before the fun begins.
Don’t be surprised if you see clips from your favorite movies or television shows, hear a personal story from a person just like you. You’ll always find something unexpected like crowd interaction, comedy, clever object lessons or creative lighting, effects and media because we believe church should be fun to attend and be engaging!
We think you deserve content that is interesting and engaging. In fact, it should be so practical that you could put it to use even before you leave the building. We learn about things like relationships, work, and careers, finances, power over addictions, forgiveness, life change through Jesus. And yes…even sex! Every week our “talks” are creative, down to earth, funny and memorable and they’ll make a real difference in your life.
KIDS AND TEENS
Your kids and teenagers will also discover stuff that applies to their everyday lives. Creative videos, music they love and they’ll meet real people who care and want to help them find their way through life with God and one another. And there’s even a safe & caring nursery for the littlest ones because we want you to be able to enjoy the morning distraction free and we want them to learn the church can be fun for them as well!
MUSIC YOU’LL ENJOY
Our live band plays a mix of high-energy pop, rock, r&b, hip-hop & gospel as well as reflective tunes that you’ll want to hum all week long. Here’s the best part – our bands sound like music that was written for today! And get this – many weeks they even cover a tune you just heard on the radio by one of your favorite artists! That’s because good music matters and helps to get you thinking about the topic of the day.
COME AS YOU ARE
We don’t have a dress code. We don’t speak in holy jargon that only Christians understand. We don’t expect anyone to be perfect. We’re just ordinary people just like you, warts and all. Authenticity is a big deal to us – it’s exhausting to keep trying to pretend we’ve always got our act together when we don’t. So come and be yourself – no matter what you look like or where you’re from you’ll find other fellow-strugglers just like you.
Casual. Contemporary. Family-friendly. Creative. Relevant. Life-changing.
