"Blessed" - Tim Mannin

Ephesians (Week 2) In the early part of Paul's letter to the Ephesians, he wrote a 220 word doctrinal rant about what God has done for us, and what it means to be blessed. The biblical claim of the gospel is that we live from the blessing, not for the blessing. We remind ourselves of each of these truths and blessings this morning and re-shape the narrative of what it means to be blessed. (Eph. 3:1-14, Jer. 29:11)

"Tunnels and Theaters" - Kaleb Kinney

Ephesians (Week 1) In the first week of our series on Ephesians, we examine the history behind the city of Ephesus and their incredible transformation to Christianity. The gospel of Jesus is a story of revolution that flips cities upside down. It has the power to change everything and everyone. We must not shrink the story of Jesus down, but shout it out in the theaters of our influence and life. (Eph 1:1-3, Acts 19:23-41, 20:1)

"God With Us" - Tim Mannin

Doing Things That Matter (Week 8) The idea of God's presence with us should be an awakening moment that spurs us forward to do things that matter. Do we care enough to bring the love and presence of God into the life of everyone around us? We have been given the power to encourage, heal, and strengthen our community around us! There is a story waiting to be told, and it is waiting for you. (Acts 3, Acts 5:14-15, Matt. 10:6-9, 2 Thes. 2)

"Love Your City" - Tim Mannin

Doing Things That Matter (Week 5) Reckless love is an action that is not just about doing good deeds. So many followers of Jesus effort to be good people, but we must also effort to bring the kingdom of God. The people we love, we pray desperately for. Are our prayers for our city and our neighbors desperate enough? (Mark 2:1-12, Job 29:6, Isaiah 52:7)

"A Different Life" - Tim Mannin

Doing Things That Matter (Week 4) It is difficult to measure faith. One of the ways we can see evidence of our faith is in the story of our life and what God has done. This morning we hear a powerful story of what God is doing and has done in the life of Jeremy and Brandy Romine and what it takes for each of us to live differently. (2 Cor. 5:17, Phil. 2:12-13, Gal. 5:13-25, Eph. 4:22)

"I Want To See" - Tim Mannin

Doing Things That Matter (Week 3) There are moments in life when God allows us to see our world for what it could be, to see a vision or a dream of what could be done to impact those around us. Just as blind Bartimaeus responded when Jesus asked "what do you want me to do for you," we too must ask to for eyes to see the need around us and the courage to do things that matter. (Mark 10:35-52)

"Everyone Matters" - Tim Mannin

Doing Things That Matter (Week 2) We live in a world divided against itself. Many people want to do things that matter in response to the racism, hatred, and division in our culture. Jesus walked in a world riddled with the same problems and showed us a few things that mattered then…and still matter today. (Gal. 3:26-28, Matt. 4:23-25, 5:1-3, 13-16, Luke 9:52-54)

"Doing Things That Matter" - Tim Mannin

Doing Things That Matter (Week 1) In the first week of our staple series on "Doing Things That Matter," we hear the silent beckoning from God calling us to more. This idea is about life and what we are choosing everyday. Are we choosing the path to God or simply allowing life to make the choices for us? Are there stories and evidence of God moving in our lives? It is time to begin living the life we were called to live. (John 10:10, Matthew 17:13-14)

"Psalm 62" - Kaleb Kinney

Psalms (Part 5) This morning we look at the words of David in Psalm 62 and the life of Job. In both situations, we see a pattern of relying completely on the Father and trusting in Him alone. There are moments when we ask God for things, but sometimes we must just be patient, be still, and remember all He has done for us. The powerful words of this Psalm inspire us to pour our hearts out to Him. (Psalm 62)

"Psalm 56" - Kaleb Kinney

Psalms (Part 4) As Christians we are often ashamed to admit our fear, but in Psalm 56 we find David showing fear and realizing that our fear brings out our faith. When we lack confidence, we must rely on the word of God. We have the knowledge of how the story ends and that brings us confidence in all things. (Psalm 56, 1 Sam. 21, Rev. 5, Romans 8)

"Psalm 34" - Kaleb Kinney

Psalms (Part 2) This week we examine Psalm 34 and what it means to praise God in the difficult times. We look back and remember all that He has done for us, claim confidence in the midst of trials and struggles because we know the ending, and leave with the challenge to seize every opportunity to magnify His name daily. (1 Sam. 21 & 22, Psalm 34)

"Living Well" - Tim Mannin

Wells (Part 7) In our final week of this series, we look at what it means to live well, sow a seed and leave a legacy. The world needs people who believe that living well is not rooted in accomplishments of accumulation, but instead it's rooted in our love for God and what we sow into our family, church, workplace, and city. (James 4)

"The Whole City Wins" - Tim Mannin

Wells (Part 6) What if bringing life to your city was more satisfying than anything else? As Jesus was speaking to the woman at the well, the disciples returned with food, but Jesus offers a food that will always sustain. Life is not about being fed so you can be full and happy, it is about joining in the will and work of Jesus and building wells that bring life to the city.  (John 4, Acts 1:8, 1 Pet 2:9-10)

"The Story Behind The Story" - Tim Mannin

Wells (Part 5) When Jesus met the woman at the well, there was extreme significance in where they were. The Jewish people and the Samaritans were at odds, but Jesus was the bridge between them. He saw the bigger story behind the story and knew that if the gospel and reconciliation was for all people. Who in your life do you need to forgive? Who in your life have you hurt or mistreated? (John 4, Acts 1:8, Acts 9:31)
