This Christmas, we'll focus on Matthew's account of the birth of Jesus. The very idea of God sending His Son to be born as a man is an incredible account. That account is amplified through the writing of Matthew into the most unlikely story. An unlikely but approachable story that draws us into the unique details. Join us for this fresh look at the familiar story you hear each Christmas.
In order for us to grow in knowing God, we need to read His Word. We need to understand His Word. We need to apply His Word. The letter of Paul to the Colossians is all about the glory of Jesus. Through this series, we'll understand the work of Jesus in our lives as well as His supremacy and what that means for us. We’ll also discover tips for staying focused on Christ in a distracting world and how that focus will affect our relationships.
As we dive into Scripture, we'll see example after example of how people faced and conquered circumstances that included loss and pain. Their experiences will inform our own experiences. Because things happen. Nevertheless, God is faithful. Nevertheless, He calls us to focus on Him and trust Him for the life to the fullest Jesus wants us to have.
These are real-life stories of God at work. They're life-to-the-fullest stories...in living color, no filter, no editing. Be encouraged and inspired, but most importantly, consider who may need to hear your story and share it.
Have you ever wondered what God thinks about the movies? Can His truth be found at the theater? "God at the Box Office" attempts to answer these questions. We don't preach the film nor do we even recommend viewing it. We simply try to understand the values communicated and then hold them up to the light of Biblical truth. Sometimes we're surprised by what we learn.
Jesus was full of grace and truth. For us, it's a balancing act. And sometimes the tough questions or issues in life make it seem impossible to manage the balance. As a church, we're the safe place to answer your tough questions, to learn how Biblical truth and God's grace work together, and to continue to apply both as we engage others in conversation.
God created the Church as His expression of genuine community. Our current world is filled with division and so in need of the kind of community only the local church can provide. As we explore the book of Ephesians, let's learn to be the church together.
