"Jesus Loves Parties" - Tim & Christie Mannin

Jesus. He changed everything about everything (Week 44) This morning we discuss the example of hospitality and acceptance that Jesus showed through grace, love, and generosity. Are we living out our lives in this way? Are we radically inclusive to all that we share our lives with? Are we feeling the conviction of building and creating community the way Jesus did? (John 2, Matt. 9:10-13, 25:35-36, Luke 14:12-14, 19:5, Mark 12:30-31)

"They Broke Bread" - Tim Mannin

The First Church (Part 4) The gospel is expansive and free. We as a church desire to lead our culture, but we can't lead it through violence and hostility. We must lead through building relationships and the breaking of bread. This morning we hear stories from others in our church about the importance of community, building relationships, and breaking bread together. (Acts 2:42-47, Matthew 26:26-28)

"A Letter" - Tim Mannin

Philippians (Part 9) Everyone loves a great ending to a compelling story. In today's message we look at Paul's final words in his letter to the Philippians. Our pastor shares a letter from his heart to us as a body as we close on one chapter in the life of our young church and open a new one, with hope, grace, and peace. If you'd like a copy of "the letter" download here.

"Shine Like Stars" - Tim Mannin

Philippians (Part 5) In the verses we study this morning, we see Paul referencing the Exodus story and how the Israelites complained and grumbled. In so doing, they were so caught up in the mud of their circumstances, that they missed the miracles around them. They had forgotten how far God had brought them. In Paul's letter, he encourages them to stop their grumbling and shine like the stars of the universe. (Philippians 2:14-16)

"Humility" - Tim Mannin

Philippians (Part 3) The root of self-centeredness is so deep and pervasive in our lives that we often don't know how to take the first step towards humility. This morning we are implored to challenge our self-centeredness by beginning to pray differently, focus on others, and value our community. (Philippians 2:1-11)

"The Pursuit of Life on Life Community" - Blair Humphreys

Bringing Life To Our City (Part 8) This morning we welcome guest speaker Blair Humphreys as he discusses what it means to be connected to the people around us. Often times we find ourselves living in silos of separated community, but what this city needs is people to share their lives with each other. The Church is called to be soul on soul, life on life community so that others are truly known and truly loved. (Thes. 2:8)

"Place & Passion in the Body" - Tim Mannin

The Body of Christ (Week 3) We talk about serving in the church, but rarely talk about the spiritual gifts. We ask for energy, devotion, and love, but don't ask "who are you becoming" or "what are your spiritual gifts?" We must not reduce ourselves to small meaningless existence in the Body of Christ. Everyone matters and is needed. (1 Cor. 12:1-7, 12:24-27, 14:1, Eph 4:11-16, Mark 10:42-45, John 14:12-17)

"Hope House OKC" - Tim Mannin & Brandy Romine

Living The Gospel: teachings from the book of Luke (Part 6) This morning we had the great opportunity to hear powerful stories about what one of our partners (Hope House OKC) is doing in our community. Breaking the cycles of poverty and homelessness, one life at a time. (Presented by one of our members Brandy Romine) 

"The Great Wall" - Tim Mannin 

Living The Gospel: teachings from the book of Luke (Part 1) In society, we build walls and tell God where He can and can't go. Living the gospel deconstructs walls and carries the good news of Jesus everywhere we go. (Luke 5:27-32, 6:6-11)

"The Body Of Christ" - Tim Mannin

Dream Wildly (Part 5) Just as children grow as they get older, we too as the body of Christ must continue to hunger and thirst for God as we grow in our spiritual maturity. As a church, we must all be dreaming about what it means to live into our potential within the body. (Eph. 4:11-16, Psalm 63:1-8, Matt 5:6, Romans 12:4-5)  

"Crushed Dreams" - Tim Mannin

Dream Wildly (Part 3) What sin in your life is your Achilles heel? It can be the smallest of things that crush our dreams, but God gives us the strength to stand firm and to overcome the enemy. (Heb. 12:1, 1 Pet. 5:5-8, Phil. 4:8, 1 Cor. 10:13, Rev. 16:20)

"Storms and Answers" - Kaleb Kinney

In the middle of the difficulties of life, we often ask the question "why" and feel as though God is not coming through for us. In the story of Job, we are reminded of God's faithfulness and provision. He speaks in the midst of the storm. (Job 39, 40)
