Walls are everywhere . . . walls that separate "us" (people who look like me, talk like me, act like me) from "them" (those people who don't look or talk or act like me). Walls create divisions in homes, churches, and society. There is only one force powerful enough to break through these walls: the love of Christ. In this series we will invite God to form us into boundary-breaking people.
In the routine of daily living, we rarely take time to think about the story our lives are telling. At your funeral what do you hope people will say about you? Right now we are all in the process of writing our own epitaph. God wants to leave a powerful legacy through your life that will impact the people around you and the generations coming after you. Join us for our vital January sermon series "Legacy -- Will You Outlive Your Life?"
As the new year begins, we find ourselves thinking about areas that we would like to see change in our lives. God has promised that "there is a time for every purpose under heaven" (Ecclesiastes 3:1). How can we make the most of the time he will give us in 2018? Pastor Dennis unpacks some wise guidance from Ephesians chapter 5.
What are you longing for this Christmas? A special gift? Special times with family? Some peace and quiet? Imagine what it was like for God's people to wait hundreds of years for the first Christmas -- the night of their Messiah's arrival. They were desperate for him to come and set their lives and the world right. The haunting hymn "O Come, O Come Emmanuel" captures this longing. During the 4 Sundays of Advent, Pastor Dennis will unpack this powerful hymn and show us how the Christ of Christmas can meet the deepest longings of our lives. Join us on our journey to the manger.
