In a day and age where many are sick and tired of “church” as they have known it… it gives new hope when we see Jesus was gets as upset about the same heart and attitudes in the temple in His physical life time.

As we continue the “All In” study series through the gospel of John on the teaching and life of Jesus, we come across a moment where He responds to the temples hyprocirsy, lack of love, and “buisness as usual” attitude in a zealous manner. Join us as we explore why by seeing what the Church is suppose to be verses some of the sickness we have seen around us and in our own lives.

Don’t get us wrong, there’s a lot of beauty in Church as God has designed it but in our humaness, we falter and Jesus is not silent on what we are to be and the beauty and passion when we do go for the “best stuff” as a community.

If “church” has let you down before, come see what possiblities still await you and the choices you can make to have community, purpose, and more!

What happens when the joy of life runs out?

Where do you turn when the success you chased after leaves you feeling empty?

How do you move forward from disappointment, grief, or even church hurt that left you feeling drained?

We find there is so much more available to you as we explore the first of Jesus’ miracles where He changes mere water to the best wine ever served. This is not just a little story of Jesus having a moment that changed a wedding reception … this is a relevant lesson of His power that can change your life today!

If you are looking for more out of this life than you are getting so far, we pray you join us for this impactful study!

When Jesus was speaking about John the Baptist, He said “I tell you, among those born of women none is greater than John.” (Luke 7:28)

What made John the Baptist so special? Is it simply some extra blessing that God put upon on Him or is it a life that you and I can choose ourselves today? Could it be possible that his choices and outlook are something we can adopt that can lead us to a greater way of living full of purpose and passion?

As we enter week two of our study in the gospel of John, we explore these questions as well as learn more about Jesus Himself …. the LIGHT and LIFE we desire.

Some people claim to speak what Jesus stood for but don’t match up to His words. Some people claim to say what Jesus believed but then find their Jesus is quite different than the Jesus of the Bible. Some people have walked away from Jesus based on what they have seen or experienced by others but never really got to know Jesus of Nazareth for who He really is.
Maybe it’s time to stop assuming you know Jesus and spend some time hearing His words and seeing His actions.

The Shepherd’s Fellowship is starting a new study this week through the gospel of John. John was one of Jesus’ best friends and an apostle. The reason he wrote this book is so that “you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in His name.” John 20: 30-31

John knew he was writing to people who either knew little about the real Jesus and/or where leery of His claims. This time together will give you a chance to get a first hand account of the One who many worship, many deny, and many still seek.

As we start our study, John lays out the deeper purpose of his gospel as well as the two main themes we will see repeated time and again. We will explore three errors that the world thinks of Jesus and refocus ourselves into the truths taught as we dig into John together.

Lead Pastor Tom Hypes’ message will be focusing on Jesus’ best friend here on earth, Peter. He was a man who had a lot of great moments as He followed Jesus but he also has a list of mistakes and failures a mile long. If you are not perfect, none of us are. You are not alone. Peter’s story will be one you can relate to and be encouraged by.

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!
