Identity Theft - JANUARY 2024
For a culture claiming that it doesn't like to be labeled, we have more labels for ourselves than ever before. Instead of attempting to earn people’s approval or wallowing in our imperfections, we need to rest in the work of Jesus and find freedom to live as our truest selves. When we understand our story through the lens of His story, we will view ourselves and others differently. Scripture shows us who we are and what we are meant for.
Do You Hear What I Hear - NOVEMBER 2023
We all have our favourite Carol. Whether you love or hate them you definitely can’t ignore them, as they’re blasted out on repeat in all the shops. Usually though, Christmas Carols are part of the background noise of Christmas but we’re bringing them front and centre to see what they’re about: to see how the truths in these famous tunes give us the deepest reason to celebrate at Christmas.
Prophetic Voices - NOVEMBER 2023
The Book of Nahum reveals the flip side of the theological coin of Jonah…not only is God supremely gracious, but He is also supremely just. We only need to read stories of the Holocaust, of the African slave trade, or of any terrorist organization to understand the beauty found in God’s wrath...and because it's an outpouring of justice, it is good.
PLAN A - SEPTEMBER 2023
What is God’s plan for caring for the poor, and raising kids and healing relationships? These are questions Christian have been facing since the founding of the church. From the books Acts we will see God’s answer. We are God’s plan A (and there is no plan B.) God is working through the church and to address the needs of the world. Don’t miss your part in God’s plans!
TRUST FALL - MAY 2023
Since a large portion of Genesis is concerned with the life of Abraham it is only fitting that we set aside time to discover why. In Abraham’s life there are moments when he is super strong, then moments when he is super weak, and even moments when he slips all together. It just proves he was human. Yet God called him His friend. What does all this have to do with us? Everything!
LOVE MADE KNOWN - JANUARY 2023
Are you familiar with “love”? No, not the feeling. The kind of love that adds value to a person, withholds judgment, calls you by name. It’s the kind of love that Jesus demonstrates. It isn’t general…it’s personal. It meets people face-to-face. The call from Jesus is to put that love into action.
THE GENEROUS LIFE - APRIL 2023
At the top of the list of taboo topics in our culture today is talking about money. However, when it comes to our finances, Jesus has a lot to say…specifically how it relates to following Him. Throughout this series, we will look at God’s Word to explore the important topic of money through a biblical lens.
REFRAMING ADVENT - DECEMBER 2022
In the middle of all the Christmas prep, we can lose touch with the real depth and meaning of the season. Advent is a way to bring that back. This season of “waiting” is meant to help us reframe how we look at Hope, Love, Joy, and Peace. To see these not as culture sees them, but as gifts that Jesus brought for all to have.
