Has someone in your life shown you compassion? Maybe a kind word or deed when you were hurting? Andrew Bauer invites us to follow Jesus’ example from Luke 7 and be a light in this dark world by sharing the words and love of Jesus to those around us in need of a Savior.

Jun 3, 2024

What is faith and how do you know if you have it? How do you choose to trust, even in the midst of the storms of life? Ben Phebus continues our series in Luke with a story about someone unexpected, who had enough faith to cause Jesus to marvel!

May 26, 2024

The storms of life are coming. If you aren’t in the midst of one now, just wait. Jesus said, “In this world you will have trouble, but take heart. I have overcome the world.” Stu Quackenbush continues our Storyteller’s series in Luke and challenges us to dig deep and build our lives on the only solid foundation, Jesus Christ.

May 20, 2024

We are rescued people, saved from condemnation through the blood of Jesus Christ. Yet in this broken fallen world, it can be hard to remember the forgiveness we’ve received and extend it to others. Ben Phebus offers encouragement from Luke 6 as we seek to love the way Jesus loves.

May 13, 2024

How do we live the Christian Life in the midst of so much hate? How can we say we love Jesus, but not hold to His teaching to love our enemies? Our guest teacher, Elie Haddad who is the President of the Arab Baptist Theological Seminary in Beirut Lebanon, shares a unique perspective on the way to find joy and peace in the midst of conflict.

May 6, 2024

It's easy to love those who love you, but what about those who don't? What about people in your life who intentionally do harm to you? Stu Quackenbush continues in the Storyteller Series with one of the hardest teachings of Jesus on what it means to truly love those who hate you and hurt you.

Apr 29, 2024

What motivates your decisions and whose advice means the most to you? Matt Zainea unpacks Jesus’s teaching on the blessings and woes in Luke and helps us understand what lies behind our anxieties, jealousies, fantasies, and resentments.

Apr 22, 2024

If Jesus prayed all night before choosing His disciples, how much more should we pray before making decisions or dealing with challenges in our lives? Matt Zainea continues our Storytellers series and shows us how to stay connected to God as we follow Jesus’ pattern for life and ministry.

Apr 16, 2024

When you think about the Sabbath, what comes to mind? Did you know that the word Sabbath means “rest?” Matt Zainea uses a passage from Luke to remind us that God created us and knows what we need. He longs for us to find rest from this crazy chaotic world. But not just rest from work–He wants us to find our rest in Him!

Apr 8, 2024

Have you ever wanted something so desperately that you went to extraordinary lengths to make it happen? Matt Zainea jumps back into our Storytellers series in Luke and teaches about a group that wanted to be near Jesus enough to bust through a roof. Would you?

Mar 31, 2024

He is risen! He is risen, indeed! Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection changed everything. Because of His great love for us and sacrifice on the cross, we are free from the chains of sin and death. We’re excited to worship, learn, and celebrate with you this Resurrection Sunday!

Mar 25, 2024

“Hosanna! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!” Can you hear the cheering crowd as Jesus entered Jerusalem? How quickly those cheers turned to jeers and shouts for His crucification! As we look ahead to Easter, let’s take time to reflect on the suffering savior, Jesus Christ, and what led Him to the cross.

Mar 19, 2024

It can be scary to share our faith, especially if we feel unworthy, unequipped, or unsure of what to say. Yet many around us are lost and in desperate need of hope. Matt Zainea encourages us to pray, act, and speak to others about the saving grace we have in Jesus.

Mar 10, 2024

Have you ever felt like an outcast, unloved, or alone? Matt Zainea invites us deeper into the healing of the Leper in our Storytellers series to understand the depth of Jesus’ heart for us. Just like the leper, Jesus wants to touch us and make us whole.

Mar 4, 2024

When Jesus called His disciples it was radical and required them to leave everything they knew to follow Him. What have you given up to follow Christ? Matt Zainea explores the cost of following Jesus with your whole life as he continues in the Storyteller series.

Mar 4, 2024

We all long for a miracle–healing for our bodies, relationships, and minds. Jesus has the power to work miracles today; yet sometimes He doesn’t. Matt Zainea continues in our Storytellers series and reminds us that the miracle we need most has already happened. Salvation is available because of what Jesus did on the cross.

Feb 18, 2024

What holds you back from believing that Jesus is who He says He is and that He has the power to truly set you free? Stu Quackenbush challenges us to overcome our doubts and fears so we can experience the life-changing joy found in the good news of the gospel.

Feb 11, 2024

When someone cuts you off in traffic, how do you react? Do you immediately think of them as a dearly loved son or daughter of God, created in the image of God? Kurt Dillinger from Life International reminds us that ALL human life, from the womb to the grave, is sacred. He invites us to be life-givers in all of our relationships and reflect God’s love to those around us.

Feb 4, 2024

We all doubt sometimes. Life is hard. Relationships are hard. We are tempted at every turn to get angry or shut down. Matt Zainea invites us to follow Christ’s example in His third temptation by speaking Scripture into our doubt and trusting God’s plan.

Jan 29, 2024

How do you grasp for power? Do you use aggressive or passive power to shortcut pain or roadblocks in your life? Matt challenges us to instead walk in faith and submit to God’s authority in every area of our lives.

Jan 22, 2024

What are you tempted by? Do you struggle to keep spiritual matters a priority while spending time, energy, and resources on the material pleasures of life? Matt uses Jesus’ example in Luke 4 to encourage us. We can’t do it perfectly like Jesus did, but He invites us to choose faith instead of giving power to our pleasures.

Jan 14, 2024

What do you hope for? The Lions to win a playoff game? Maybe it’s for a promotion or for your child to be successful? Using verses from Romans, Matt Zainea shares where our true hope can be found, and invites us to be part of sharing that hope through serving.

Jan 8, 2024

Can God use our past? The sins we hope no one ever finds out about? The hard things we are called to endure? As Matt Zainea explores Jesus’ genealogy in Luke, we’ll see how God’s plan, protection, and provision gives us hope and builds our faith.

Dec 31, 2023

Is there something you hope will be different this new year? Something you’ve tried in the past to let go of, but just couldn’t? Matt Zainea continues our Storytellers series in Luke and encourages us to have faith to change.

Dec 24, 2023

When the light pierced the darkness of that Bethlehem hillside so long ago, the Shepherds ran without hesitation to share the Good News of Jesus’ birth! What will you do with that news this Christmas? Matt Zainea invites us to have faith like a Shepherd.
