    The Jesus Way, Part 6: The Way of the Table - Heather Zempel

    The Jesus Way, Part 6: The Way of the Table - Heather Zempel

    The table is one of the most ubiquitous yet overlooked settings in the Scripture. Throughout the Old Testament, the table is where people encountered the power, provision, promise, and presence of God. In the New Testament, the table is where the powerful were confronted, the oppressed were uplifted, the outcasts were invited, the self-righteous were ridiculed, and the seekers were given a glimpse of the kingdom of God. He encouraged his followers to remember him when they came to the table together in a ritual that has been practiced by the church for 2,000 years. Whether we call it Communion, The Lord's Supper, or the Eucharist, it is the place where we ground ourselves in our common faith and are united in Jesus.

    , Part : Midweek Message from Pastor Mark: March 26, 2020 - Dr Mark Batterson

    We find ourselves in a season of tremendous uncertainty. With every news cycle, anxiety seems to escalate. It's in situations like this that we've got to be dialed into what God is saying, what God is doing. This is a teachable moment for the body of Christ. This is our moment to step up, step in and BE THE CHURCH.

    The Jesus Way, Part 5: The Way of The Sparrow - Campus Pastors

    The Jesus Way, Part 5: The Way of The Sparrow - Campus Pastors

    In a season of social isolation and anxiety, this weekend we're taking a team approach to our message. You'll see a show of unity in isolation with all seven of our Campus Pastors taking a part in the sermon via ted talk.
    On a daily basis we find ourselves inundated with new data and further pushed into isolation from one another. Questions are consistently swirling. What if I get the virus? Am I going to survive financially through this? How can I do my job and home school my kids? What if someone I love who is health vulnerable gets sick? The questions can be endless. And worry can be overwhelming.
    Our text is Matthew 6:25-34 where Jesus exhorts us to do what seems impossible: Do not worry. He was saying that to an audience who actually had more to be anxious about than we do. Yet, he called back to the very basics of faith: Trust. We pray today that you find faith deep within your soul, to reach out and re-center yourself in Christ and find trust in Him.

    The Jesus Way, Part 4: The Way of the Child - Dr. Mark Batterson

    The Jesus Way, Part 4: The Way of the Child - Dr. Mark Batterson

    As we age, pieces of our personality are held hostage by painful moments in our past. Jesus came to set the captive free—the inner child within each one of us. It's never too late to be who you might have been.

    The Jesus Way, Part 3: The Way of the Vine - Joshua Symonette

    The Jesus Way, Part 3: The Way of the Vine - Joshua Symonette

    Success and outcomes seem to constantly dominate our focus. All of our decisions seem to hinge on them. Jesus was also concerned about success and outcomes for his disciples. But in John 15, he uses the metaphor of the vine to explain to them that their success (or rather fulfillment of their purpose as his disciples) hinged upon one particular input; remaining in him.

    The Jesus Way, Part 2: The Way of the Towel - Joel Schmidgall

    The Jesus Way, Part 2: The Way of the Towel - Joel Schmidgall

    As we explore The Jesus Way, today's passage leads us to Jesus turning the social structure of the day upside down in the way he leads. Jesus lays down his position and instead picks up a towel. It wasn't a singular commendation of service or an isolated call to humility…it was the combination of both. We'll spend our time today unpacking this beautiful story in the form of five values: Humility, identity, filling of the Spirit, obedience, and love.
