Love that we get to study the Book of Ephesians together. This week, we look at "the plan". What does it mean to have free will, if God has a plan? Are we really free? Is this the Matrix? Who's behind the curtain? We're going to allow Bertrand Russell, Sophocles, and the Apostle Paul speak into this challenge for us this week. Can't wait!
This week we kick off our New Series! Together, we'll be spending the Fall going through the Book of Ephesians. We're calling it "Your Church is Too Small". I can't wait for us to dive into this book that is about, among many things, what "the Church" is. Or, maybe more importantly, WHO the Church is. Looking forward to what we discover together.
We kick off the month with a look at something that seems...outdated. Ya, I know. But we are going to look at the tabernacle of Moses. The Old Testament tabernacle seems pretty remote to our 21st century context. This Sunday we'll look at how it could become a key to a deeper experience of Jesus.
In a world that moves faster and faster, everything seems outdated. How do we keep from apathy and exhaustion, and truly find 'life'?
Man...we all like to be right. Right? This week, we confront this notion with...the Gospel. What does it look like to live a life outside of having to "be right"? How do we open ourselves up to this kind of humility?
As we continue our series on Outdated, we take a look at a plague in our society. An epidemic in our culture. A...giant pimple on the face of America? I don't know. Here's what it is: Entitlement. Not one thing can and will corrupt your capacity for joy, life and engagement with the Kingdom all around us like entitlement. This week, we confront it and see what we can do to reverse the process, and find joy in the present.
This week we continue our Outdated Series with a fun one, "Submission". What does it look like for us to understand Scriptures like, "Wives submit", and still find relevance? We're not fooling around this week. Special guest speaker Bonnie Stanfill teaches us what the Bible has to say on the matter.
This week we continue our series called "Outdated". Our topic Sunday, God is a White Man. This belief is not just outdated, it's wrong. This is gonna be a fun Sunday. Maybe uncomfortable. Maybe controversial. But definitely honest and important.
Lots of people...never change. They just get stuck deeper and deeper in a rut, playing out a script they learned when they were younger and never evaluated very well...a script that’s creaky with obsolescence, and they don’t even notice it. And that leads to outdated views about God and faith, life, relationships, money, the good, the bad, how to eat, work, play – everything. An outdated YOU is probably living a frustrated and frustrating life, driven by fear and control and secretly scared of change. How do you keep yourself from becoming outdated? How do you stay vibrant, interesting, nimble and quick?
What is Worship? Is it a hollow Sunday tradition forcing us to sing words of praise to God, or are we missing its true meaning? Pastor Josh Pinkston speaks from his experience as a Worship pastor and life-long Christian. Neat.
