Sorry, But You’ve Been Catfished!

Familiar with the term “catfished”? Catfishing is a practice of pretending to be someone you’re not (on social media) in an attempt to lure someone else into a relationship. In fact, there’s a whole television show about it.

You may never have been catfished in a big enough way to make it onto the show but if we’re completely honest we’ve all been “micro-catfished” and have even “micro-catfished” others. In other words, at one time or another, you and I have been guilty of manipulating our image in some way to gain the acceptance of another. We hide our warts and scars and enhance our stories and surroundings.

Problem is, when we do that, everyone loses. We lose the opportunity for true intimacy. We lose knowing what it feels like to be genuinely loved. We lose out on experiencing grace, and worst of all, we lose out on the ability to change and become the best version of ourselves. Our fear of the pain of rejection ultimately costs us the ability to find true acceptance, belonging and transformation.

No wonder, God has so much to say about living in authentic community and the importance of healthy, honest relationships with one another. If you long to find true acceptance and belonging and want to grow and be transformed into God’s best version of yourself you need to be deeply connected in authentic biblical community. Spiritual growth and health require more than shallow, surface-level friendships.

Join us this Sunday (and bring someone you care about) as we learn together how to become the kind of people we both need. You were made for more than superficial relationships!

WHAT TO EXPECT

COFFEE

Grab a good cup of free coffee (or cold beverage) before the service and bring it in with you. There’s just something about hanging out together with a cup in your hand that makes it better!

SOMETHING UNEXPECTED

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!

RELEVANT MESSAGES

Together, we learn about things like: relationships, work, 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. 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. Many weeks they’ll even cover a tune you’d hear on the radio 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. No matter what you look like or where you’re from you’ll find others just like you.
NO MATTER WHERE YOU’VE BEEN OR WHO YOU ARE, YOU ARE WELCOME HERE.
