Renewal For Your Life Part 5
This week we pivot from The Big Four topics on identity – we are highly valued, deeply fallen, eternity shaped and greatly loved – to a discussion of, “so now what?” This is based on Christ’s comments in Mark 12.

Renewal For Your Life Part 4
We are in the middle of a series on Renewal where we are spending the first 4 weeks looking at identity, who we truly are – most importantly, who God says we are. We have prioritized 4 big ideas that should shape the way we understand who we are and therefore how we operate in the world, how we live from who we are. Today we are looking at the 4th idea, that we are deeply loved by God. Ben will show what this means by looking at the end of Romans 8.

Renewal For Your Life Part 2
We’re continuing our focus on identity in the Renewal series and examining how as humans we have deep flaws because of the story of humanity’s fall in Genesis 3. God doesn’t want to leave us flawed — there’s a path forward if we’re willing to confess.

Renewal For Your Life
In 2 Chronicles we read about the reign of Hezekiah — a 7th Century BC king of Israel who leads the nation back to God. His father – who had been king before him — had been evil and had led the Jews in the wrong direction. Hezekiah turned things around. He wiped out the idols and instituted sweeping reforms. If you study Hezekiah, you see how he foreshadowed David (and Christ) — and you see how he provides a model of repentance. I am referencing Hezekiah here as we begin a yearlong focus on renewal. I do so to call us to kick this year off with a prayer of repentance. I invite you to join with me.

This morning we continue our three-week study of John 17 – a conversation between the God the Father and God the Son about several things, not the least of which is: you and me. In John 17 we get a chance to look behind the curtain and see what Jesus wants for us – what He prays for us. In today’s sermon, Mike focuses on John 17:17, Christ’s prayer that our lives would be shaped by truth.

Today Mike starts a brief series on The REAL Lord’s Prayer found in John 17 — a key chapter in the Bible. The Gospel of John is important for all sorts of reasons. As we will see, John 17 is a uniquely important chapter in this uniquely important book. And it has insight that is both needed and immediately practical.

The Danger of Proximity to God’s Promise
This week, we have special guest Armando, one of our global partners who works with refugee communities in the Middle East, sharing with us. He will be looking at the passage of Genesis 13 at the unique danger that comes from being in close relationship to those following God, how that proximity can give the impression of shared commitment even among those who aren't seeking after God. Then what enables a person to truly seek after the promise of God.
