The Psalms: An Invitation to Be Fully Human (6.17.18)

The Psalms invite us into a life that is truthful and transparent with God. This can make us feel uneasy – can we say these things? Won’t God get mad? Are we being unfaithful if we do? Listen here for week 2 of our series on The Psalms.

The Psalms: An Invitation (6.10.18)

We started a new sermon series this week, The Psalms. We will speak, sing and practice many of the Psalms and hopefully let them permeate our hearts and lives, as they certainly influenced Jesus’ life, identity and ministry. Each week, we’ll be given suggested Psalms to read, pray & meditate on. Here are this week’s […]

Inhabit: Stories (6.3.18)

To wrap up our Inhabit series, we invited 2 couples to share stories about life in their neighborhoods, how they’ve built relationships, and how they’ve influenced the flavor of their neighborhood.

Navigating Conflict

Series: April 8, 15 and 22. Training: Saturday, April 28 Our world is in desperate need of resurrection. Perhaps this is especially true as we consider the destructive ways we are treating each other when we have varying viewpoints (be they political, theological, etc.). From dinner tables to debate stages we witness a growing inability […]

A Journey into the Wilderness

“The wilderness of the Bible is a liminal space – an in-between place where ordinary life is suspended, identity shifts and the new possibilities emerge. Through the experiences of the Israelites in exile, we learn that while the biblical wilderness is a place of danger, temptation and chaos, it is also a place for solitude, […]

Unity, Liberty, Charity

We are committed to being a church that practices unity in essentials, liberty in disputed matters and charity in all things. This framework provides a way for us to be in community as we encounter those “disputed matters” of faith (Romans 14) in which we might have differing viewpoints and interpretations. In Essentials: Unity We […]

Act Justly (1.7.18)

On this first Sunday of 2018, we begin a new sermon series based on Micah 6:8: He has shown you, o mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with our God.  But what does it mean to ‘act justly’? And […]

Act. Love. Walk.

What does the Lord require of you? It’s an intentionally provocative question the prophet Micah asked the people of Israel; a question many of the Israelites would have been confident answering.  But then Micah throws a curve ball. The answer, it seems, makes perfect sense, and yet is completely unexpected. What does the Lord require […]

God’s Loyal Love: Psalm 107

On this last Sunday of 2017, we revisited the word sankofa. We took some time to look back so that we can move forward, remembering God’s loyal love. If you haven’t already done so, we invite you to read Psalm 107 to be reminded of God’s loyal love, both to the Israelites so many years ago […]
