"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)

"Called Up" - Tim Mannin

Jesus. He changed everything about everything (Week 41) Jesus doesn’t focus on our failures and isn’t content with where we are. He is calling everyone of us into something more. He changes everything about everything and for many of us, we are too afraid to answer the call because we know our life will change. (Matt. 26:33-53, 70-74, John 21)

"Yes & No" - Tim Mannin

Jesus. He changed everything about everything (Week 8) Jesus showed us a model of how to live life with an overall purpose and mission. He said no to the right things in order to carry out the mission of His life. Are we saying yes to too many things? Are we mis-aligned or too busy? Are we making decisions with our time and life that reflect our mission? (Luke 4:42-44, John 5:19)

"The More Right Thing" - Tim Mannin

Jesus. He changed everything about everything (Week 7) Do you ever feel like you're doing all the right things, but not experiencing The Lord? In the story of Mary and Martha, we see Jesus acknowledging the difference between what is good and what is better. The life that we are choosing is dictating who we are becoming. Are we choosing to be busy, pre-occupied, and focused on religious traditions or choosing to rest in His presence? (Heb. 4:12, Luke 10:38-42, John 12:1-6)

"Angry Jesus" - Tim Mannin

Jesus. He changed everything about everything (Week 4) There were moments in the life of Jesus where we see His passion and anger rise up when He was faced with injustice. In our life, He has called us to have this same holy discontent for the injustice around us. For too long we have moved away from the difficult things He has called us to and to the mediocre and comfortable. What is the fire in your heart that He has called you to pursue? (Mark 3:1-6)

"Faith" - Tim Mannin

5 (Week 2) We all have faith and choose to put it in different things, such as our jobs, our friends, etc. We don't have a lack of faith problem, but a placement of faith problem. What is it that you are putting your faith in? Jesus is calling us out of the comfort of the boat and the safe places of our faith and asking us to step out onto the water of a new journey of trust in Him. Take courage, do not be afraid. (Matthew 14, 2 Tim. 1:7)

"Living Intentionally" - Tim Mannin

(Ephesians Week 13) In our everyday life we have the opportunity to listen to the voice of the Holy Spirit and chose to live our life intentionally. We have the option to chose between what is easy and safe and what is intentional and purposeful. We are challenged to trade up to the more meaningful things of life and look through the lens of intentionality. (Eph. 5:14-20, Acts 2:12-15)

"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)

"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)

"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)

"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)

"She Left The Bucket" - Tim Mannin

Wells (Part 4) Today we return to the story of Jesus and the woman at the well, and discuss the challenges of letting go of the control in our life and stepping into the deeper waters with Christ. Often times, we have the desire to move out of the shallow waters, but do not know how. With this in mind, we examine practical steps for how each of us can take action to put down our control and step into deeper waters.  (John 4: 25-39, Luke 5:1-7)

"I Am" - Tim Mannin

I Am (Part 1) Starting our new series, we study Exodus 3 and the story of Moses and the burning bush. Moses asks a question that is still relevant in the heart of us today, "Who Am I?" God responds with an answer of peace and power... "I Am With You." In every situation... in fear, in doubt, in stress, in frustration, in anger, in joy, in depression, in everything... "I Am With You." For every need of life, "I Am." (Exodus 3, John 18:4-8)
