    The Acts of Jesus Continued

    The Acts of Jesus Continued

    How does what Jesus did in the Bible 2000 years ago connect to me and my life today? Why did Jesus leave just when everything seemed to be about to take off? Why has he been gone so long? And what is he doing these days (if anything) in our world? These four questions are at the heart of the book of Acts, and could hardly be more relevant and personal today. This teaching kicks off a new study of the acts of Jesus continued since his resurrection and ascension. Jesus is still hard at work today through his Spirit and his people, continuing his great work to reconcile men and women back to God. Join with us as we lean in to discover now only what God did back then and there, but what he's still doing here and now -- and how you can be a part of it!

    Wise Men Still Seek Him

    Wise Men Still Seek Him

    How will you seek truth in 2020? Twenty centuries ago, Wise Men from Arabia sought truth as they investigated and followed the star of promise. And they found what they sought!: the newborn Savior of the world -- Jesus the Christ. And quite naturally, in finding Who they sought, they "rejoiced exceedingly with great joy", and bowed in worship. That can be your experience now, this year as you seek truth, find Jesus, and live in joy and worship. This final Advent teaching reminds us that wise men and women still seek Him. Will you?

    Good News of Great Joy for Young and Old Alike

    Good News of Great Joy for Young and Old Alike

    What will you be like when you grow older? Growing old well doesn't happen by accident. It's far more than just time. It takes preparation. It takes investment. This teaching looks at the story of Simeon and Anna during Jesus' dedication at the temple -- two older people who had done just that: grown old well. The Gospel of Jesus is indeed good news of great joy for both young and old alike! And it calls us to grow old well, now, and to invest in others so they can do the same -- generations blessing generations.

    Polishing the Christmas Jewel

    Polishing the Christmas Jewel

    Have you ever looked through smudgy glasses? Or seen a jewel in desperate need of cleaning? The Christmas story is just like that! Centuries of loving use has left it smudged and foggy. In this teaching we seek to polish the Christmas Jewel by rediscovering the true Christmas story through careful study of the Biblical text and history. You might be a bit surprised what you see when we let the Jewel of Christmas shine anew. Merry Christmas!

    Shepherding Shepherds

    Shepherding Shepherds

    What's the most impressive entrance you've ever seen? Queen Elizabeth II? Diantay Wilder? When the God of the whole Universe entered our world, he went a very different direction: he entered as a lowly peasant baby, wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger. This was great news to the lowly shepherds in the nearby fields who'd never get an invite to the palace, but they knew about mangers. And the angels told them where to find the Shepherd King--the King of Kings! This Christmas season, when you see a manger, think "Accessible": Jesus himself impossibly close to the lowly... to you! He still is.

    The Gospel of Christmas

    The Gospel of Christmas

    Holidays can be a real stress and letdown. Lots of hustle and bustle and parties and presents, and then it's January. Do you long for something more? Something rich and real; for joy that moves your soul? In this teaching we lean in to the background to Christmas, all the way back to Adam and Eve, and discover the unlikely foundation for the Good News of Great Joy. And we marvel at God's great work to bring forth the Seed of Promise through untold generations of messy, broken people like you and me. So if you long for more than normal Christmas this year, check this out and lean in with us as we rediscover the Gospel of Christmas!
