"Dying to Live" - Tim Mannin

Jesus. He changed everything about everything (Week 48) On this palm Sunday, we reflect on what it meant for Jesus to take the cross for us, what He experienced in those moments, and how it shook the world forever. In His death, there is life. In our city, in our daily life… are we dying to the things that Christ died for? (Matt. 21:1-11, 27:11-54, 7:13, John 10:10, 6:63, Romans 8:6-11)

"Bringing Life" - Tim Mannin

Jesus. He changed everything about everything (Week 42) Jesus commissions his people to go and do what He did, to make disciples. We can’t pray for more mighty works of God without actually doing what Jesus has called us to do. We must pay attention to our life and realize that the people and places that we intersect with everyday are brimming with potential to bring life to our city. (Luke 4:43, Luke 10, Matt. 28:18-20, 2 Cor. 6:11-13)

"Repent & Believe" - Tim Mannin

Jesus. He changed everything about everything (Week 20)  We all have areas of sin in our life that have been tripping us up for far too long. What is the area of vulnerability in your life? In order to see spiritual breakthrough in our life, we must learn to repent and re-focus our heart. Repentance is a walk, not a one time choice. When we allow God to transform our mind, we begin to see our sin and struggles the way that He does. (John 10:10, Mark 1:14-15, Luke 15:8-10, Gen. 4, Her. 12:1-2, Psalm 119:11)

"His Message" - Tim Mannin

Jesus. He changed everything about everything (Week 2) Jesus' ministry was the in-breaking of the reign of God and the establishment of His kingdom. When He showed up, there was a reversal of power. He touched the un-clean and they became clean, He touched the broken and they were restored. Are you broken or hurting? He is enough. (Mark 1, Mark 2)

"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)

"Hide and Seek" - Tim Mannin

Grow: Teachings From The Gospels (Part 11) Just like a child playing hide and seek, we hide from God in plain site. He doesn't force us out of hiding, but invites us into a relationship with Him. As we grow, we join with God as a seeker for His people. Are you joining in the mission of God to seek and show compassion to His people? (Genesis 3, Matthew 9)

"Cephas" - Tim Mannin

Grow: Teachings from the Gospels (Part 3) Life is full of ups and downs and the life of Peter (Cephas) may be one of the best examples of learning what to do when you find yourself in the down moments. Some of the moments from Peter's life that mattered the most where the ones he chose to run to Jesus after his lowest low. (Various Scriptures from Peter's Life + John 20:1-10, John 21:1-9).

"Jesus and The Mission" - Tim Mannin

Bringing Life To Our City (Part 4) The mission of Jesus is restoration. We bring life to our city when we learn to live like a sent people, not a saved people. After his resurrection, Jesus showed hope and restoration to the disappointed, the doubting, the failed, and the inadequate. No matter who you are or what you're going through, there is restoration for you in Jesus.   (Luke 24, John 20)

"The Whole Story" - Tim Mannin

Bringing Life To Our City (Part 1) We begin a new teaching series by examining the story of God and what we are doing as a church to fit into it. What does it mean to bring life to our city and what foundational ideas must occur as we look forward to who we will become over the next ten years? Consider this idea or message as part 1 of a much bigger conversation that includes: Your Life, Our City, Jesus, and the Church. (2 Corinthians 6)

"Restoring Good" - Tim Mannin

LIFE: and our hope for good (Part 3) How are you changing the world for good? We all have "the moment" in life when we encounter an injustice but continue on with normal life. You may feel that you have very little to give, but along side the master, we can restore the good. (Gen. 3:15-19, Nehemiah 1) 

"Wonder and Awe" - Kaleb Kinney

Over the years we can lose the sense of joy and wonder that came when we first experienced salvation, but there are a world of people out there who are desperate for us to be living in wonder and awe of the endless possibilities in Christ. (John 5:1-15, Eph 1:7-8)
