Faith Forward - Transformed People Week 5 - Oct 17 2021

The Necessity of Community

October 17, 2021 • Brian Bales, Jon Ackerman • Galatians 5, Ephesians 6

Community is messy. And community is fundamentally necessary to spiritual growth. The tension between those truths is often difficult to navigate, and yet it is absolutely imperative that we learn to do so. So join Brian and Jon as they share practical steps and ways of thinking that may just help you to engage (or re-engage) in a transformative community environment in a new way.

Faith Forward - Unexpected Life Bonus Episode - Nov 21 2021

November 21, 2021 • Brooke Ackerman, Jon Ackerman • Ruth

Though the teaching series on Ruth has ended, we're back for one last episode on "waiting." Why, you ask? Because we wanted to bring in a special guest -- Brooke Ackerman, co-Director of Middle/High School ministry -- who has some fantastic insights born out of her own extensive waiting with God. In particular, how do we love those who are in the midst of their own waiting?

After 3 weeks of sharing helpful ways to stay close to God during intense times of waiting, we thought it might be helpful to offer a few stories of our own. So come join us (Brian and Jon) as we share a few of the most challenging times of waiting, and what we learned about our connection to God in the midst of those moments.
