Mar 19 From Bad to Worse / Exodus 5:1-23

Mike Slayden

God wanted to teach Moses humility, obedience and dependence. After being in the wilderness for 40 years, it is apparent Moses has learned humility, and in saying what God told him to say to Pharaoh, it appears he had also learned obedience. But was he dependent? Pharaoh increased the work and… More

Mar 12 Godly People in an Ungodly World / Jeremiah 29:1-14

Brad Bell

How do followers of God, surrounded by paganism, enter into their community to influence and shape it? We’ll look at how the Jews did just that in Babylon, and what it could look like in our context if we truly believe God strategically places us where we are so we would take initiative to seek the… More

Mar 5 Living Out God’s Calling / Exodus 2:23-4:31

Brad Bell

When Moses was in the wilderness, he likely felt like he had been forsaken. Yet he was right were God wanted him to be. Even in the wilderness, God was with Moses, working in his life. Through his fear and insecurity, Moses learns obedience and dependence on God, who was preparing him for his… More

Feb 26 Learning Humility in the Wilderness / Exodus 2:11-22

Shea Sumlin

At the age of 40, Moses was at the peak of his leadership ability. On paper, he seemed to fulfill every human requirement we would expect in a true deliverer. But he was lacking the one thing needed to bring about Israel's redemption: God. So God, in His grace, leads Moses out on a painful 40-year… More

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
