JUNE 5 – JUNE 26, 2022

Do you ever wonder what you want the last years of your life to look like? Have you ever considered what you might feel when you look back at your life from an ‘older you’s’ perspective? How do you measure a life?
The reality is – we can have a life well lived, marked by gratitude, generosity, wisdom, and grace. We can spend more of our days with purpose, intentionally adding value to the lives and world around us. For that, we need to be mature.
In this series, we will unpack the instructions for maturity from the most prolific leader of the early Church – the Apostle Paul.
Our goal?
“…that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.”

APRIL 24 – MAY 29, 2022

“Never judge a book by its cover.”
“Practice makes perfect.”
“A picture is worth a thousand words.

We often recite these little sayings without any thought to their literal meaning or their origin.
THAT’S OK. NO HARM. NO FOUL.
But… what if there are some phrases that truly did impact our lives for the better?

What if, in some of our most defining moments, a pocketful of phrases could help us recall the bigger picture, regroup from worry and what-ifs, and give us guidance to live with real wisdom?

Those phrases exist in the pages of the Bible, within the Book of Proverbs.

Discover one phrase each week, April 24 – May 29, as we…
WISE UP.

APRIL 3 – APRIL 17, 2022

Each year, followers of Jesus from all over the world center themselves and the content of their church services around a singular event – the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. We believe that this miraculous moment in our history is worth revisiting and retelling, because it is not only true, but it is remarkable. It is where our hope is found.
This year, we invite you to come with us as we slow down, zoom in, and step into this awe-inspiring story. Join us in our investigation of the moments leading up to and surrounding this foundational event of our faith. In this three week series, we will take a closer look at each day; we’ll examine, frame-by-frame, the weekend that changed history forever.

MARCH 6 – MARCH 27, 2022

We’ve been told that our greatest achievements, our biggest successes, life’s brightest and most beautiful moments happen on the mountain – once we’ve traveled and conquered and ultimately, arrived. But what if there was another kind of story? A story about heartache and loss, about grief and trial. One that hasn’t arrived, hasn’t reached it’s joyful resolution, and yet, it is a story with one key element that changes everything –  hope.

Unveiled to us through the accounts of biblical heroes, through pages and poems and psalms, and through you, is a story worth telling. 

In this four week series, we will showcase four local artists, their music and their stories, and examine biblical lament through the lense of a very poignant Psalm. Join us, and dare to uncover the hope that is found in your story – from the valley.

FEBRUARY 13 – FEBRUARY 27, 2022

Whether we’re moving towards or through a new season in our life, navigating a time of transition and change, or settling into a familiar rhythm, each of us has asked some version of this question: What was I made for?
We all want to know our purpose and, even more, we need practical tools and language to help us discover how to live it out.
In “MADE FOR THIS“, we will take an intentional look at the life that Jesus models for us and examine three rhythms of life that will form us, encourage us, and empower us to live the real, abundant life that Jesus offers to us.

JANUARY 9 – FEBRUARY 6, 2022

When we follow Jesus, we’d like to think that we put Him first. He is, after all, Lord of all. Still, we struggle.
What if there were practical tools that we could put into place to help us truly but Jesus first? Join us as we discover the truth that the bible offers us and journey together to finally put JESUS OVER EVERYTHING.
