Defying Gravity

Sermon Series

Hardships and struggles can pull us down. We don’t want to sink under the weight of our circumstances, but we know how easily that can happen. Then, when we combine our own personal struggles with the discouraging realities of living in our culture, it can seem like the path of following Jesus is an increasingly [...]

Margin

Sermon Series

Do you ever feel overwhelmed in life? Think about our busy family schedules, our stretched finances, and our demanding work lives.

Born To Be Wild

Sermon Series

Born to be Wild There are so many people in the Bible who were just like us. Average people who made mistakes and tried their best. Most of the people in the Bible never got much attention or saw huge opportunities to change the world come their way. Many of them felt like their mistakes [...]

It’s summertime. Relax. We know things are tense right now in the world. Most of us have been pretty uptight for quite a while.

Custom Made

Sermon Series

We all want to live meaningful lives of purpose and calling. But, so often, whether through the expectation of others or our own busyness and confusion, we fail to live into our full uniqueness.
