Feb 19 God Is Still Good / Exodus 2:1-10

Brad Bell

God chose to wait 430 years to deliver the Israelites out of Egypt. Could He have delivered them on the first day? Yes. But He chose not to. So where was God in the calamity – the slavery and infanticide of the male babies being thrown into the river? He was there, in the midst of it all. Even in… More

Feb 12 This Is Our Story / Exodus 1:1-22

Mike Slayden

Why does God allow suffering? Where is He in the midst of difficulty? The Israelites wondered the same things as they encountered the slavery and genocide. The book of Exodus shows us a bigger picture of a God who loves His people through their struggles and redeems them from the slavery they faced… More

Feb 5 Praying for Those in Authority / 1 Timothy 2:1-6

Mark Snee

Oftentimes, the church is known for being against political leaders or authority figures we disagree with. Our natural tendency is to revert to complaining and arguing about how wrong they are. But the Bible teaches a different way. So how do we live godly lives in a polarizing political climate? More

Jan 29 Racial Reconciliation / Luke 6:41-42 / Ephesians 2:8-22

Brad Bell

Racial reconciliation is a gospel imperative. We are in the middle of one of the most controversial situations we have seen in our generation. Yes, we have come a long way, but we have a long way left to go. So how do we live the ongoing visible expression of the gospel in our community? As the… More

Jan 22 Literacy / James 2:14-26

Brad Bell

The way you live your life authenticates your faith. How are you getting involved with what God is doing in our city? Becoming a literacy mentor to help kids learn to read by third grade can change the trajectory of people’s entire lives, as they are more likely to finish high school and college… More

Jan 15 Orphan Care / Galatians 3:29-4:7

Shea Sumlin

The idea of orphan care and adoption is at the very center of our Christian theology. Our very testimonies reflect the love and mercy of our heavenly Father who stepped into the world orphanage we once lived in to rescue and redeem us back into His family. Yet this theology of adoption is not a mere… More

Jan 8 Personal and Communal Transformation / Hebrews 10:19-25

PJ Lewis

God is a God of community. He is a communal being, and He created mankind to experience community with Him. In fact, the heart of the gospel shows us a God who is doing whatever it takes to bring us back into a personal relationship with Him. And now that we have it, He entreats us to enter into… More

Jan 1 The Messiah Will Come Again / 2 Peter 3:9-14 / Acts 1:6-8 / Romans 8:18-25

Shea Sumlin

At Christmas, we celebrated the fact that dozens of Old Testament promises and prophecies about the long-awaited Messiah had come true. A suffering servant had come to die for the sins of the world so we might receive a righteousness that could never be earned or deserved. But what about all those… More

Dec 24 2016 The Messiah Has Come / Matthew 1:18-25

PJ Lewis

Way back in the Garden of Eden, God promised us a Savior, and Christmas is when we celebrate that He delivered on His promise. God sent His Son to die for us, to pay the ransom we could never pay, and to set us free from the slavery of sin. And if we place our faith in Jesus, we are able to be… More

Dec 18 2016 The Person of the Messiah / Isaiah 52:13-53:12

Shea Sumlin

For centuries God's people waited for a Messiah. They had all the promises and prophecies in front of them, yet somehow when He came, they missed Him. Obsessed with the promises that dealt with a physical king who would deliver them from a physical bondage, they missed the promises of a suffering… More
