Day of Thanks 2019

In our annual Day of Thanks service, we reflect and offer thanks for three major attributes of God: His guidance, His grace, and His goodness. We pray this service offers you a time to reflect this Thanksgiving on who God is, and what He has done for you.

Together, Part 10: Rise Together

Together, Part 6: Give Together

The picture of the church we’ve built through our Together series is one where believers respond in joy to building community with each other. But a surprising thing happens when we respond to each other in joy: we give to each other not out of compulsion but out of love.

Together, Part 5: Pray Together

What happened to the church that it lost its expectation for God to work through His people? If we believe God answers prayers, we must “lay the track down” for God to come and work, and that happens when a church prays together.

Together, Part 3: Grow Together

We are dependent on God to come work in us to grow us into a group of mature believers.

Together, Part 2: Serve Together

To be truly great in God’s kingdom, we must give up our rights and serve others on behalf of God. In order to be called a leader, we need to be a servant.

Together, Part 1: Come Together

Our potential to reach others for Christ doesn’t rest on our abilities as individuals, but in our ability to come together well.

Field of Hope, Part 4: Finding Hope in a Wedding

Hopeless does not lead to helpless. We finish our series on Ruth with the most hopeful declaration yet.

Field of Hope, Part 3: Finding Hope on the Threshing Floor

The Book of Ruth revolves around the Hebrew word hesed which can be called mercy. Awareness of God’s unfailing hesed love for us gives us hope.

Field of Hope, Part 2: Finding Hope in a Barley Field

When we feel hopeless we tend to look for hope (or just give up), but hope can be elusive. Every little step can bring us closer to the truth as we pursue God.

Field of Hope, Part 1: Finding Hope on the Road to Bethlehem

We need community and friendship through hopelessness to avoid isolation and loneliness. Every step can help move us in a direction toward others.

UpNorth with Jesus, Part 11: Retreat and Advance

Our final week in the UpNorth with Jesus series finds Jesus with His disciples in a retreat center where Jesus makes a bold promise about the foundations of the church.

UpNorth with Jesus, Part 10: Crossing the Border

The fact that Jesus isn’t responding doesn’t mean He’s not listening.
