An Abused Woman

This week, we’ll journey with Jesus as he encounters an abused woman in John 8:2-11.




The Skeptic

We’ll meet diverse people we can relate to who had life-altering encounters with Jesus. This week, we’ll listen to a conversation between Jesus and a skeptic surprised by Jesus in John 1:43-51.




One and Only Life




Breaking Barriers

Our global village is filled with racial, social, economic, gender, and spiritual barriers that create tragic suffering for so many people. We’ll meet three of the most diverse people who come to Christ and gather together as the church community that displays the power of the Gospel to break through barriers in our fractured world.

Ambassadors of Reconciliation

We live in a world torn apart by violence, racism, injustice, and so much more. We’ll be inspired by what Christ has accomplished to reconcile people to God and we’ll be challenged to live as Christ’s Ambassadors working toward reconciliation in our world.




Rhythm, Breath, Rest and Love




Pass It On!

The Greeks who invented the torch relay race coined a phrase, “Let those who have the light pass it on.” How do we, as bearers of the light of Christ live out this light and pass it on? Let us come together this Sunday and explore how we can obey the command of Christ to bring His life- transforming good news to those around us.




The Example of Jesus

In the story of Jesus washing his disciples’ feet, we see an example of true humility and care. We say, “that’s what service ought to look like!” But hiding in this simple act is a deeper reflection on who Jesus is, why Jesus came, and how Jesus sets an example that moves us far beyond helpfulness in our service. This Sunday we’ll see how this story is a scandalous tale of God’s radical love.

The Message of Christ

Spiritual conversations with our friends can be stressful and inviting people to church can evoke fear in a skeptical society. We’ll explore God’s wisdom for sharing Christ with people God brings into our lives. We’ll learn from Peter’s letter to the church in the Roman Province of Asia, who were wrestling with how to relate their faith in the midst of religious persecution, social discrimination, and intellectual skepticism.
