Kim has been on a transformative journey of surrendering her need for approval and finding her identity in Christ alone. We…

As a community, we've been exploring what it means to walk the narrow way and embrace spiritual disciplines like rest and Sabbath. This can be challenging, as our culture often pushes us to stay busy and productive. However, Jesus invites us into a different rhythm - one of peace, connection, and deeper relationship with Him. Join us as we have an …

We had an opportunity to hear from Andy and Andrea as they share their journey of integrating a Sabbath rhythm into their lives.

Just as the Narrow Way is about less, JOHN 15 is about less.

“In a world that is counter to my growth into Christ-likeness, we must be aware of what is conforming or deforming us, and work to counteract it by actively pursuing formation into a people who look like Jesus and exhibit the fruit of our relationship with the Holy Spirit.” What is forming you, what is forming us?Therein lies the JESUS’ call to the…

We dive into the topic of inheritance and what it truly means for us as followers of Jesus. We explore the idea that inheritance is not about money or possessions, but about the Holy Spirit coming and resting powerfully in our lives. Intimacy with God is the foundation of our inheritance, and how identity and inheritance flow out of that intimacy. …

Join us as we explore what it means to be adopted, apprentices, and ambassadors of Jesus. We delve into the concept of adoption, where we are brought into God's home and heart, becoming children of God. Through the teachings of Jesus, we learn how to be apprentices, following in his footsteps and learning from him as our master. As ambassadors, we …

We are reminded that our identity flows from our intimacy with Him, and that walking in our identity is an expression of our deep connection with God. Through scripture, we learn that our true identity is found in Christ, and that we are deep…

Gideon was a man easy to overlook. In the book of Judges we learn the history of Israel when it was under oppression from surrounding nations, suffering from frequent raids. These raids were the consequences of turning their backs on God for years, but finally, the people were beginning to call out to Him for deliverance. God heard them and picked …

Many of us have hindered our relationship with God (and others) because we drag who we think He wants us to be (or who we think others want us to be) before Him, while withholding our TRUE SELF. This is what we mean by living in our FALSE SELF. And living in our FALSE SELF can become so normal/natural that we don’t even realize we are doing it!…

Intimacy with God is a beautiful process, that requires a constant yes, and a willingness to travel with Him into the deeper places. Intimacy isn't about reaching "it" as a destination, it is all about the daily journey walking with him through hard things, trusting Him in every season, and being bold going after things in our lives that hold us ba…

Join us as we continue Advent, centering our heart on FAITH as we wait on Jesus, preparing our hearts to celebrate His birth, while also waiting for his arrival in and around the places in our lives that need Him desperately right now. He is not far off, and is "near the brokenhearted" (Psalm 34:18). No matter where you are, or what you are walking…

We are continuing our journey through "The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry" this season and I am excited to be sharing with you this weekend on portions of the book that have been impactful and somewhat challenging, especially in a season that wants to push us to extreme limits.We will also move into the next week of Advent as we prepare our hearts t…

Each Sunday and the corresponding week in this Advent season, we have a specific focus to help prepare our hearts to “receive” Jesus into our homes and hearts on Christmas as we honor and celebrate His birth. The process of preparation is to slow down, remain focused on Jesus in the middle of a hectic season, and fight the urge to get spun up or sp…

There are definitely prayers I can look back on and I’m very thankful that God didn’t move on my behalf and do what I wanted the way I wanted, and I have to admit that His Goodness and Wisdom have brought me here WAY better than my plan ever could have…But often when I think back across my prayer life’s journey, the moments that rise to the surface…

sees the wolf coming, he abandons the sheep and runs away...” Jesus is the Shepherd who stays when the wolves of life come to huff and puff and blow our houses down. Mixing parables a bit, but the point remains: We HAVE a Savior who guards and guides our lives, and fights anything that desires to "steal, kill or destroy". What does that mean for us…

The Parable of the Laborers in the Vineyard invites us all to examine our response to the extravagance of the Good News of Jesus. If you are like me, on first read you may identify with the laborers in some way or even struggle with understanding what Jesus is really trying to say. As we spend time contemplating this section of scripture, let’s inv…

Here is your monthly announcements for what is coming up in the month of October.

John 10:10 is a scripture we often share, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.” When Jesus said this statement, it was in the context of his description of Himself as both The Gate of the sheep pen and The Good Shepherd. While we may have an enemy who wants to “steal, kill and d…

This week we are walking through the Parable of the Mustard Seed and the Parable of the Yeast. Jesus was a storyteller. He used stories to help people understand what he was speaking to them. As a storyteller, this is one of the ways I was drawn into the Word as a kid, and still love to dig in as an adult. Join me as I tell some stories out of the …

Have you noticed how religion and doctrine seem to complicate God? The pharisees and religious elite were consumed by busying themselves with religious to-dos and complex behavioral and cultural box-checking. Jesus lived in a culture whose primary mode of learning was oratory, and baffled the religiously educated with the parables He told to expres…

Our Galatians key verse was: Gal. 3:3 - “How foolish can you be? After starting your new lives in the Spirit, why are you now trying to become perfect by your own human effort?”Why is this admonition important? Because it led into the entire section on the fruit (of the SPIRIT) in Galatians 5 and Galatians 6:7 - “God cannot be mocked, a person reap…

In Galatians Chapter 6, Paul challenges the church to be careful where they sow. There are two possible kinds of soil: the flesh or the spirit. He reminds us that once they had, they could not change the harvest.What is sown to the flesh will bring a harvest of corruption but the parts of their life they sowed to the Spirit will produce life. All t…

In this teaching, we will be exploring the words of Paul inviting us to “keep in step with the Spirit” and stewarding our freedom in Jesus. We will celebrate together that Jesus is enough for every place of pain or temptation or struggle that we carry in this life.

As His children, filled with His spirit, we are welcome to come to him with whatever it is that we are walking through. He is going to comfort our hearts, listen to what we are saying and meet us with love and understanding. And He is ready to direct our hearts. What Paul had experienced and what he knew to be true, he was speaking in this letter t…

Gal. 3:5 - "So again I ask, does God give you his Spirit and work miracles among you by the works of the law, or by your believing what you heard??"The Early Church saw a POWERFUL, TANGIBLE and SUSTAINED move of God's Spirit. How did this take place? It wasn't because they were following the Law. The Law was powerless. It was because of their BELIE…
