    Oneness: Church Unity in a Time of Division

    Oneness: Church Unity in a Time of Division

    One of the last things that Jesus prayed for on the night of his arrest and impending death was that his church would be united in this dark and divided world. He prayed that his disciples would share in the oneness of God and display that unity as a witness to the world of the Father’s love and the power of the gospel. In this timely message, Pastor David invites us to see our unity in Christ as a spiritual fact and a spiritual fight, and challenges us to make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit.

    Does God Have Pets?

    Does God Have Pets?

    An armed conflict between Israel and Hamas-led Palestinian militants has been raging for months now. How should Christ-followers respond to what is happening in Israel and Palestine? The weight of biblical teaching is that God loves the whole world, that all humans are created in God’s image, and that God does not have favorites. Listen as guest speaker Daryl Byler shares some practical steps that we can take to reflect a theology of love that is not ladened by a hierarchy of human value.

    Peace Be With You!

    Peace Be With You!

    On each day of Holy Week, Jesus showed his disciples what it looks like to wage peace in keeping with the true character and ways of his Father. This led to his brutal death by crucifixion. But while the cross appeared to be the end of Jesus, it was the way by which he became victorious over sin and death and revealed to the world the power of his peaceable Kingdom. In the final message of our series, Pastor David invites us to receive the gift of Christ’s peace so we can be his peacemakers.

    No More Hammers & Scapegoats

    No More Hammers & Scapegoats

    It’s Friday of Holy Week. Jesus was arrested and a trial was held in the middle of the night. Jesus goes before the Sanhedrin, King Herod, and Pilate, where he is sentenced to die by crucifixion. We need to remember how we got here and take a deeper look at Jesus’ final hours if we’re going to understand the meaning of the cross. In the sixth message of our series, Pastor David invites us to see how Jesus is the definitive revelation of God and why we must give up our hammers and scapegoats.

    A Towel, Basin & Two Swords

    A Towel, Basin & Two Swords

    On Thursday of Holy Week, after a day of relative calm, the forces of darkness begin to descend upon Jesus and his disciples. Everything is now moving quickly. He will wash his disciples’ feet, change the meaning of the Passover meal, give a new commandment, be betrayed with a kiss, rebuke Peter for using a sword against their enemies, and be arrested. In the fifth message of our series, Pastor David invites us to follow Jesus’ command to love as he does, even when all hell breaks loose.

    Two Roads: Which Way Will I Go?

    Two Roads: Which Way Will I Go?

    On Wednesday, in the middle of Holy Week, we encounter the quietness of three private scenes. And each of these scenes reveal different ways of responding to Jesus and his approach to pursuing peace. We’ll find that two roads emerge: a path toward Jesus and a path away from him. In the fourth message of our series, Pastor Melissa encourages us to consider what is underlying our responses to Jesus and challenges us to follow in his way of peacemaking.
