The Resurrection

Jesus has risen. He is on the move. His people are hurting but He is filled with excitement and compassion. They are ready to give up and He is ready to fire them up. Join us as Jesus encourages the heart of his faithful followers and prepare them for living with the victory of the cross forever present before them.

The Prayer

Jesus calls us to intimacy. This means he wants to know the real you beyond the masks and personas that we put up for everyone else around us. Jesus is truly interested in the real you. When Jesus prays to the Father on our behalf, he shows us what true intimacy looks like and sets an example for how we can strive after it as well. Please join us this Palm Sunday as we go through John 17 together. See you there!

The Helper

This week we continue in our series of messages on the Upper Room Discourse by focusing on what part of Jesus' teaching was most upsetting the Disciples. They were vexed, sorrowful and maybe feeling abandoned when Jesus told them repeatedly that He was leaving them. He senses their dismay and tells them that even though He is leaving, He is not leaving them as orphans. "Another" is coming to take His place and this will change everything. Our Scripture for the morning will be John 14:15-31 & 16:1-13.

The Vine

We live in a world with growth and decay. There is no middle ground between these two. Jesus calls us to life, an abundant life at that. This Sunday, join us as we worship together and deepen our knowledge of the abundant life we are called to in Christ. Our Scripture for the morning will be John 15:1-17.

The Way

God wants to know you. His desire to know you is what drives Him to the cross. He accomplishes not the only opportunity for us to know Him in this lifetime, but forever. Join us this Sunday as we continue in our series looking at John 14 and the Upper Room Discourse.

The Washing

We begin our new series looking at the Upper Room Discourse found in John 13. The disciples are frustrated with one another because they want to know who is the greatest among them. Jesus teaches them a valuable lesson about humility in the face of pride and the great sacrifice it takes to truly lead.

Our guest speaker, Pastor Wade Chan taught on one of the primary claims of Jesus is that he is the Good Shepherd. What does this title say about him? And what does it mean for us? Scripture for the morning is found in John 10:11-21.

God knows your heart // Luke 18:10-30

This Sunday we will look at a vivid parable Jesus directed at some religious leaders who opposed him. They were so certain they were doing religion perfectly and that they had their destiny secured. Jesus confronts them about their foundational assumptions and they ridicule him. Jesus said to them, "God knows your hearts", meaning, God knows what master your inner desires and impulses. Then He tells them the short story we know as the Parable of the Rich man and Lazarus. There are some big lessons for us in this parable.

Enter into the Joy of your Master

This Sunday's Parable is a short story Jesus told as a part of longer teaching we call the Olivet Discourse. Jesus has stated that he will be killed, will rise on the third day and then ascend to heaven. Now from the Mount of Olives, overlooking the Temple Mount, Jesus is teaching how the new and beautiful Temple Herod built will be utterly destroyed. And that massive tribulation will come upon humanity and that this time will culminate in his own return to earth. He will return to Judge. There will be a reckoning for all of us. The Parable of the Talents is a story that emphasizes being diligent and faithful as we await his return. Do you believe Jesus when he prophesies the end of days and his return and the time of reckoning?

The First will be Last and the Last First

This Sunday we will look at one of Jesus’ parables called the Parable of the Laborers. How would you feel if you had worked a twelve hour day harvesting and then received the same pay as someone who had only worked half a day or even just one hour? Most of us would not like it and yet Jesus tells that this kind of inverse, the first being last and the last becoming first, is what the kingdom of heaven is “like”. We will look at the implications of this on Sunday. This short and simple story has a big lesson for followers of Jesus.
