New Series – the Power of Story

We have the opportunity to live and thrive in God’s story; a powerful story of Revelation, Separation, Redemption, and Restoration, a story we were created to grow in and journey on as we seek to mature in faith. To help us on this journey of spiritual growth Jesus set up and challenged us to initiate and get involved in interactive relationships with fellow Christians that cause us all to thrive as followers of Jesus…the name for these relationships is Discipleship (Matthew 28:19-20). It is the sharing of our spiritual journey with others so the power of our faith story, God’s story might be known and experienced. The stories in Matthew 13 reveal powerful truths and wisdom to living God’s story here and now, giving fuel to these disciplining relationship.

Be sure to join us for this greatest story, beginning July 6th!

iWork: Enjoying Work Redeemed by Jesus

When Christ is central, it doesn’t mean we withdraw from real life and become a hermit or retreat to a monastery or convent. It means Jesus takes a central place in our lives and He re-orders every other element of our lives. He re-orders how we function as families and in our communities. He also wants to re-order our work lives – and not by sending everyone into vocational ministry.

He’s given you a ministry – and most of you get paid for it! That’s right! God wants your work to be a ministry.

Don’t worry, you don’t have to start a workplace Bible study, though that may be a great idea. God wants to use you where you are right now for His purposes. That may seem like a stretch, but we’re going to help you see how in our newest series: iWork.
