As human beings, we deal with a variety of emotions and issues every day. From anxiety and depression to fear and loneliness, life can get the better of us. So, how do we prepare ourselves when overwhelming thoughts invade our minds and souls? “Soul Reflection” is an eight-week series that will shed light on what the soul is and help us understand that how we nurture and care for our souls plays a pivotal role in how we view our circumstances and the world around us. The series will also explain how just like nature, our souls fluctuate through four seasons: renewal and nourishment (spring), beauty and warmth (summer), productivity coupled with exhaustion (fall) and weariness and cold (winter). Despite the ebbs and flows, however, one constant remains—our hope is in Jesus Christ.
Cradle to Crown
|Cradle to Crown|
Celebrating Advent remind us of the grand scale of Christmas, that Jesus descended from His throne in heaven to be born as a human baby in a stable, knowing that ultimately, He would die on a cross for the sins of the world, rise from the dead and ascend to heaven on the third day. He now wears the crown of the King of Kings and will one day come back again. This five-week series focuses on the Scriptures that tell this story and will help us reflect on the true meaning of Christmas and the hope, love, joy and peace Christ offers each of us.
Set Free: Galatians Part 1
|Set Free: We are Justified by Faith in Jesus Christ|
|We are justified by faith alone in Jesus Christ alone. Galatians stands as a clear and eloquent, yet vigorous presentation of this one and only true Gospel message. The book of Galatians brings us face to face with the raw truth of the Gospel, its rightful authority over our lives and the fruitfulness it produces through us when we live in the freedom it provides. God’s grace, His plan for salvation and the wonders of the sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit are on full display throughout Paul’s message. During the study of this dynamic book, we will explore topics such as apostolic authority, Christian freedom and obedience, grace and the Holy Spirit through the lens of the Gospel. The hope is that these truths explode in our hearts, resulting in radical personal growth and a deeper understanding of our faith and how God’s love for us sets us free.|
Holy Spirit. Between mystery, misconception and the unknown, there is a lot to unpack when it comes to the third person in the Trinity. We praise and pray to both the Father and the Son but often neglect the identity, role and workings of the Holy Spirit. Who is the Holy Spirit? What does the Holy Spirit do in this broken world? How does the Holy Spirit work in the life of a Christian? Join us for this series and learn the answers to these questions as you come to realize what a wonderful and essential gift it is to know the Holy Spirit, to surrender to His will and to walk in His grace.
James: Practical Faith
How do our faith and actions work together to draw us closer to God? In this series, “Practical Faith,” we’ll examine the Book of James to understand the Christian faith in practice rather than just its principles, and we’ll learn how faith can be so practical it affects all areas of our lives. Faith in action produces endurance for the trials and temptations of this world, as well as the righteousness that honors Jesus Christ. By following James’ instructions, we, like his readers, can grow in our spiritual maturity in the areas of attitude, service, speech, submission and prayer while growing closer to God.
Life on Mission
“The Good News” of God’s love for His creation doesn’t start in the Gospels. In fact, the whole story flows throughout scripture, full of grace, justice, generosity, and compassion. And Jesus calls each of us to be a part of the story. Whether in our neighborhoods or the most remote parts of the earth, God wants us to see the whole world as His mission field. It’s time to accept the call. What’s your life on mission look like? Join us for a new series, Life on Mission, as we discover what can truly open minds, change hearts, and transform lives.
Discipline is often strived for at the start of the new year. But motivation and discipline are two very different things. Do you fall back into patterns of choosing what you want now over what’s best for you in the long run? Don’t lose hope. There is a Greater Reward waiting for you. Discover how to let go of the status quo and stay focused on who God says you are and what He wants for your life. This January we will study spiritual disciplines and how they can strengthen your walk with Christ and your relationships with others.
