    The church celebrates communion every week as a central part of worship. But why? Why spend time on eating a little cracker and having some juice? Where did that idea come from, and why does it matter today? In this message, we will look at the communion meal from multiple angles and see how it helps shape us and mold our character even today.






    This week’s message aligns with Core 52 book, Chapter 35: Communion.

    Jesus taught about a radically different way of life from the rest of the world. He called it the kingdom of God. But to become a part of that kingdom, the early Christians underwent a type of ritual that we celebrate today. In this message, we will look at baptism- what it is, why we do it, and why it matters so much in today’s tense world.






    This week’s message aligns with Core 52 book, Chapter 39: Baptism.

    06.14.20 - Under Authority

    Everyone looks to someone to help them make decisions, and in some ways, we all put ourselves under someone else’s authority. We look to our parents, our friends, our professors, and our co-workers when hard stuff arises. For a few thousand years, followers of Jesus have looked to Jesus and the Bible as a source of authority in our lives. In this message, we will look at why we, as a church, look to the scripture and how it can be helpful for us.






    This week’s message aligns with Core 52 book, Chapter 50: Scripture.
