    6th Birthday Vision

    6th Birthday Vision

    We mark our 6th birthday with Pastors Lorenzo Smith, Ryan Smith, and Isaac Brickner reflecting on where we’re at six years in and using our current series in Proverbs to call our church family to live out the four core identities of a disciple as responsible followers of Jesus, responsible family members, responsible stewards, and responsible disciple-makers.

    With Willpower

    With Willpower

    From the series "Wisdom's Way". Proverbs 16:32, 25:28, 14:29, 17:27, 4:8


    Pastor Ryan Smith opens the back-half of our series in Proverbs: Wisdom's Way by looking at wisdom's chief virtue: self-control. Apart from self-control, our attempts toward the good life depicted in Proverbs will rarely amount to more than the cul-de-sac of desire, aspiration, failure, and shame. In examining Proverbs 16:32, 25:28, 14:29, 17:27, 14:8 and other Proverbs, we begin to see a practical invitation into a life of Wisdom's Way with willpower.

    The Test

    The Test

    From the series "Wisdom's Way". Proverbs 9:1-18


    Over the first eight chapters of Proverbs, the book has depicted us as a young bachelor and Wisdom and Folly as two beautiful women. In chapter 9, Pastor Ryan Smith takes us through the story's dramatic conclusion which weaves together the entire Bible's story of "The Test" placing you at the door of decision. Who will you give your life to?

    Lady Wisdom‘s Song

    Lady Wisdom‘s Song

    From the series "Wisdom's Way". Proverbs 8:1-36


    Pastor Ryan Smith takes us further in our Wisdom's Way series as we look at Proverbs 8. After the warning of Lady Folly and the call to delight in Lady Wisdom last week, we receive a category-bursting, vivid portrayal of just how wonderful Wisdom is in this passage.

    Lady Folly, the Way to Death

    Lady Folly, the Way to Death

    From the series "Wisdom's Way". Proverbs 5:1-7:27


    Pastor Ryan Smith continues our series, "Wisdom's Way: Finding the Good Life in Proverbs" as we look over the speech of Proverbs 5-7, where a warning of "the forbidden woman" is expansively and vividly detailed. How does this speech connect to last week's invitation to "marry Lady Wisdom" as the way to life? And what instruction can we find in this speech not just for our sexuality but for all of our lives?

    Lady Wisdom, the Tree of Life

    Lady Wisdom, the Tree of Life

    From the series "Wisdom's Way". Proverbs 3:13-4:27


    Sometimes it takes a metaphor for us to truly understand the truth of something. In Proverbs 3:13-4:27, Pastor Ryan Smith details the book's personification of wisdom as both the Tree of Life and a potential spouse we are to embrace, love, and cherish. What do these metaphors mean in our understanding of wisdom in the book of Proverbs and in the larger story the Bible is telling?
