As we finish up a three week focus on partaking in our life’s mission of the Great Commission, we dive into one of the strongest tools we have to share hope with others… our stories.

We do believe in Jesus Christ simply because we were told to but because we have experienced Him as well. Testimony after testimony of how hope, power and peace through Christ have made a difference in our lives. Testimonies that serve as proof of how hope is real and can change your life as well!

For some of us, we are in the middle of building a testimony right now. We have come to places in our lives where we know we need Jesus to move but fear letting go or have other blocks in our way. Come be encouraged on what to do in those moments today to bring a testimony of change tomorrow!

As we continue to look at living a life on mission (the Great Commission), we look at a key time that Jesus sent a group of people out into the world. As we look at His heart and instructions, there is a great deal to learn that apply to our life today.

Many of us have people in our lives who do not know the Lord that are on our hearts. If we don’t, we should. Join us as we explore what we can put into place starting now to be the light in the lives of those around us.

Did you ever wish that God would just send you a letter addressing your deepest concerns and fears? Did you ever think it would be nice if He just penned you thoughts of what to do next to be able to live a life with a mission that’s more than just getting through the day?

In this study, we will be exploring some letters written doing just that from the book of Revelation! What we often times look at as something scary or just about the future has a lot to say about our here and now. We pray you will be part of this time with us as we explore truths that are right in front of us that we can grasp, adopt, and live that take this life beyond the daily grind.

As we wrap up the “Mountains” series, we come to talk about the key that moves us from fear of the struggles in this life to enjoying the freedom of Christ!
Each step of the way, we explored the Bible for key points and advice of how to move forward into freedom. However, for many of us, we continue to struggle in the same cycles as before. This is because there is one core truth that opens the door to moving forward that mere “best efforts” for change fall short.
Join us this week as we explore that truth that makes all the difference.

Our next struggle in life (or “cliff”) that tries to steal our joy is dealing with relationships. Many people shared they are struggling in their marriage, parent/ child relationships, singleness, friendships, and other areas when it comes to finding community.

If you find yourself struggling in any of these areas, this study is for you. Paul gives us a great block of advice in Ephesians that we will study to find freedom in our relationships.

As we continue our study series, the next area of life that we look at that tends to put people in bondage and steal their joy is finances. So many people are struggling with bills and money issues and there is help in the struggle.

In this study, we will look at what the Bible teaches about finances and provide practical and free help with how to move forward from today in new ways towards freedom! If you are struggling or just want a better understanding of God’s ways with the finances you have, we invite you to join in!

When we started the “Mountains” series, we explored how beautiful the life God has for us is but as we travel the path, the fear of the cliffs around us can keep us seeing God’s glories in our life. As a community, we identified different “cliffs” we are dealing with and are going to tackle them one by one through study and practical life application.

The first one we will be addressing is our physical health. We know many have challenges due to being out of shape, struggling with illness, fighting addictions and more. For this reason, we will explore God’s ways and instructions that gives us the keys to moving forward into life and freedom!

If you have been struggling at all in the area of physical health or know someone that is, we invite you to join in and be part of a morning of worship, fellowship, encouragement and study.

Pastor Tom returns from his vacation in Alaska and brings some thoughts with him from God’s Word and His creation!

We all face different kinds of challenges in our lives that invite us to worry, stress, and fear. However, in Christ, there is a promise that we can have peace in the midst of the struggles.

Why do we find it so hard to hold on to this kind of peace?

As we come into our last study in our series, we get a chance to respond….

What has the Spirit been putting on your heart lately? What areas does God want you to move in new ways in faith? Is it a time of celebration or struggle? Is a time of struggling with illness or a lingering sin? What are you to do?

Even if you have not been part of this study, you can easily walk into this one as an invitation to meet God where you are today for grace, freedom, and power.
