Check Up - Galatians

No one likes check ups, but they are necessary if you want to stay healthy. Paul wrote several letters to churches as spiritual "check ups". He looked at their health (good and bad) and gave instructions on how to move forward. Today we look at his instructions to the churches in Galatia and what it means to have "freedom in Christ".

Speaker: Pastor Steven Lucas
Text: Galatians 1, 2 & 5

The Movement Begins - Movement of Multiplication

The church is more than just a gathering, it's a missional movement. The book of Acts isn't about the growth of one church, it's about the movement of Jesus' people multiplying all over the ancient world. They were changing culture, values, perspectives, and lives. Today we look at what multipliers look life.

Speaker: Pastor Steven Lucas
Text: Romans 10 & 16

The Movement Begins - Movement of Diversity

The church is more than just a gathering, it is a missional movement. Through Jesus people of all types, backgrounds and walks of life have been united together. Together, through unity in our diversity, we become a part of something beautiful that God is putting together - a family!

Speaker: Associate Pastor Aaron Kaeble
Text: Acts 10 & Ephesians 2:11-22

The Movement Begins - Movement of Synergy

The church is more than just a gathering, it's a missional movement. Each person brings different gifts and talents to the church as a whole, but the greatest gift a church has to offer the world is Jesus.

Speaker: Pastor Steven Lucas
Text: 1 Corinthians 12 & 13

The Movement Begins - Movement of People

The church is more than just a gathering, it's a missional movement. In a culture of brands, names, buildings, and big lights, it's easy to forget that the church is not a place or a name, but simply God's people on God's mission.

Speaker: Pastor Steven Lucas
Text: Acts 2 & 1 Corinthians 12

The Movement Begins - Movement of Power

The church is more than just a gathering of people, it's a missional movement. The church began with a surge of power when the Holy Spirit filled the followers of Jesus. What does having that type of power mean? What does that power allow the church to do? Today we dive into a discussion on power.

Speaker: Pastor Steven Lucas
Text: Acts 1 & Matthew 5

Life of Jesus - Risen

The Resurrection is the single biggest moment, not just in Christianity, but in the history of the universe. Life as we know it hinges on this event. Today we look at why Jesus came to be crucified and why He rose again. And how we can know that we are loved personally by the God of the universe.

Speaker: Associate Pastor Aaron Kaeble
Text: Matthew 28:1-10 / 1 John 4:7-19

Life of Jesus - Crucified

Jesus' sacrifice on the cross is the single greatest expression of love humanity has ever known. Jesus' sacrifice is both the reason and model for stepping into faith, and for taking any step of faith. Today we take a look at the effects of Jesus' sacrifice on humanity.

Speaker: Pastor Steven Lucas
Text: Matthew 27; 1 John 1; Colossians 1;  2 Corinthians 1
