Peace by Piece

Peace so often feels like an elusive thing. Whether in our hearts, in our personal relationships or in our society, real peace doesn't just happen. Passivity is a problem not a solution. That's why the Bible says to "seek peace and pursue it." If that's the case, where do we go to get it? How do we find it? The biblical answer is we make it. Jesus listed peacemaking the outcome of his salvation and as one of the qualities of his followers. Peacemaking is a process with many pieces. Join us this spring as we learn from God's word to build "Peace by Piece".

Redemption

Redemption, what a hopeful word. It means a second chance, a re-do. It means I'm not stuck in my past. It means my sin is not my identity. It means my failure is not the final word. It means my value is restored. It means my difficult moment was not wasted. Do you need it? Who deserves it? How does one get it? What if I mess up again? Join us Holy Week as we get ready for “REdemption".

God's Got Us - A Journey through the Book of Daniel

It’s not just that "God's got this!".  He does, but it's so much more. "God's got this!" is good if we remember that he has us in his plan and purpose and not the other way around. God is sovereign and he is in charge and in control even when people are in rebellion to him and circumstances are dark and difficult. He acts, we respond and our responses have repercussions, for good or for ill, salvation or destruction. Consider Daniel and his friends. Caught in the storm of history, overrun by events, suddenly thrust into dark circumstances, still they kept their bearings because they knew it was not about them but about Him. The Book of Daniel reveals the scope of God's sovereignty. From the intensely personal circumstances of four young men ripped from their homes and forced to serve the king who conquered them to fantastic visions of world events, we see God's sovereign power and purpose throughout. It is my hope that this study will help us all to face the personal and global challenges of our time with less fear, cynicism and anger and with greater faith, hope and love because God's Got Us!

Sent

Christ-followers are sent into the world to share the love of God found through faith in Christ. In this series we are going to learn how to do so in a way that feels like love. 

It's a mindset really and it make sense when you look at it from God's perspective. If God the Father sent God the Son into the world to express his love and restore a relationship with him, and if he has given God the Holy Spirit to be our guide and help; then those who receive that love, restoration and presence are expected to share it. Jesus put it this way, "Father…As you have sent me into the world, I have sent them." Christ-followers are sent into the world to share the love of God in Christ. This series is about doing that.
