    Can I trust the Bible? | Week 3

    Can I trust the Bible? | Week 3

    What is the Bible? 🧐

    In week three of our series Searching for Answers we are talking about if we can trust the Bible.

    The truth is Americans trust in the Bible is significantly declining. So, if you have struggled with this question you are not alone. In fact, it’s normal to question this, but together lets search for an answer! 

    Sometimes trust can be a hard thing to do. Everyone has been a situation where trust was given only to be let down. 

    So, can we trust the Bible?

    Why Does God Allow Suffering? | Week 2

    Why Does God Allow Suffering? | Week 2

    In week two of our series Searching for Answers we are talking about how in the midst of suffering and the hard seasons, God’s goodness is still there. 

    So, even though that may be the case, you might wonder why there is still suffering? 

    Well, we FEEL that question. It's raw and tender and not an easy topic to talk about. But as we search for these answers with you today we are not going to solve anything, or minimize any feeling you might have - we are here to support you. 

    But, we do invite you into this question of “Why is there suffering” and let's talk about it together! 

    After you watch the talk let us know your thoughts in the comments below!

    Can Faith and Doubt Coexist? | Week 1

    Can Faith and Doubt Coexist? | Week 1

    In week 1 of our new series Searching for Answers, the focus is on Faith and Doubt. How often do you feel like you are being pulled in both directions? 

    The important thing to know is that there is a real tension between faith…and…doubt. In these situations, we may want faith to win, but it can be hard for us when doubt is pulling us in the other direction. When this happens it can take a toll on us when our doubt is so evident in our minds. 

    So what do you do when this happens?

    Watch above!

    After you watch the message let us know what you think. How can you manage the tension between faith and doubt?

    Chapter 4 - Grow Your Maturity in Christ | Week 4

    Chapter 4 - Grow Your Maturity in Christ | Week 4

    For the final week of our series, The Book of Philippians our focus moves towards following Jesus in his Kingdom way. 

    If we are formed by our experiences, what we take in, and what engages our mind, how are we focusing on forming ourselves to have a Kingdom-oriented perspective? 

    The truth is, it can be hard to continuously focus on forming a Kingdom-oriented perspective when you have different challenges around, maybe from work or at home. 

    But no matter the circumstance, if you focus your heart on Jesus, you will find peace.
    After you watch the message let us know what you think in the comments below. 

    This week, challenge yourself to keep your eyes fixed on Jesus and seek his Kingdom!

    Chapter 2 - Are You Following Jesus' Example | Week 2

    Chapter 2 - Are You Following Jesus' Example | Week 2

    Who is the most famous person you have met? How did you react? 🤩

    As we continue our series The Book of Philippians our focus is on our mindset. What if we fully adopt the mindset of Christ when we follow his example of sacrificial love? 

    As followers of Jesus, WHERE are we supposed to shine the spotlight?

    These types of questions are what we really want to challenge ourselves with as we go through this series and even after! 

    To be Christ-centered and to walk humbly knowing that the focus and attention is on our savior Jesus Christ. 

    After you watch let us know what you think below! How can you continue to adopt the mindset of Christ?

Emkat53 ,

Can we get this sooner?

Love having this as a resource but lately the podcasts haven’t been available since Wednesday. I’d love if it could be earlier so I can review before my small group meets to discuss. They used to come out on Monday afternoon so I’m not sure what changed.

Lucasco ,

LOVE THE TEACHING!!!

The teaching at COMMUNITY is both deep and accescible. It works for people who have been part of church for a long time or people who are walking in for the first time. I love it!
