Recapturing What It Means To Be Human
How do you answer the question, how are you feeling?
If you are like a great majority of us your answer would be something like, “I’m good. How are you?” when in fact underneath the surface you are anything but good, or fine. And why do we answer that way? What is it about our emotions that cause us to retreat and avoid conversations like this?
It could be that we have learned to hide our emotional baggage of our past or our current pain even in order to keep up appearances. We don’t want people to know that we are not enough. Not smart enough, not strong enough, not successful enough, not extraordinary enough.
Maybe you don’t deal with your emotional health because you somewhere along the way internalized that emotions are simply bad or wrong. Maybe you were taught to keep your feelings close and to use your intellect to make decisions. To keep your emotions in their own compartment.
The problem is, if we want to grow on our journey with Jesus, we must realize our Emotional health and spiritual maturity are inseparable. It is not possible to be spiritually mature while remaining emotionally immature, and so we have to begin to deal with what is under the surface.
And there is good news because, God is a God of emotions and He wants to help us reach emotional wholeness as we learn to walk with Him and follow His ways. He is deeply invested in our emotional well being and is willing and waiting for you to join with him in the healing process.
Join with us this Sunday as we discuss together our journey to recapture our emotional wholeness. It is possible to heal from the emotional baggage of the past and to move forward in a way that brings freedom that can only be found in Jesus. See you online or in person this weekend at 9:15 or 11:15 for week five of Recaptcha: Recovering What It Means To Be Human.
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.
