    Series: (All)
    “Where We’ve Never Been Before” is the message this Sunday from Joshua 3:1-5. Life is filled with times when we go where we’ve never been before. Moving away to college. Graduating and wondering what the future holds. Starting a new job. The birth of our first child. A medical diagnosis. Trusting God in a new way. We’ll explore a scene when God revealed his character and prepared his covenant community, filled with both anticipation and fear, to cross the Jordan River into the Promised Land.

    After the birth of Jesus, his family was forced to flee as refugees to Egypt, because King Herod attempted to kill him by massacring every young boy in his village. This tragic story warns us about the evil grasp for control, reveals Christ’s personal connection with those who suffer, gives voice to those who cry out with grief, and offers hope of God’s redemptive story.

    Advent Conspiracy
    Series: Advent
    This Sunday is the third week of Advent and we will continue comparing and contrasting the shepherds and the magi by learning more about the magi from Matthew 2:1-12. Who were these mysterious magi? Where did they come from? Why did they travel for months to find Christ? The magi were probably Gentiles, intellectually elite, powerful people, while the shepherds were Jewish, lower class, forgotten people in their culture. We’ll be inspired by the journey of these diverse people and challenged to serve diverse people in our world today.
