Church in Unity (Acts 15:1-21) - Pastor Robby Winkler
September 5, 2021
When we read the book of Acts we see the church being born. As we continue to read through it we see the church fighting for unity. In today’s climate we think it is more important than ever that we are a unified body of believers. And there is nothing more unifying than the work of Jesus in our lives!
The Power of Love
August 8, 2021 • Pastor Gabe Moreno • 1 Corinthians 13
We all have so many thoughts about what love really means. Is it the feeling of butterflies in your stomach? Is it something someone does for someone else? In conversation, we use the word "love" pretty loosely and interchangeably with other emotions. It can range from "I love pizza" to “I love my spouse." But what if God's definition of true love is far deeper than we ever imagined? Join us and learn more about the true meaning of love and why living by this Biblical understanding will dramatically change the way you approach and experience everyday life.

We want to be made well, of course. Believe it or not, we can grow so comfortable with our situation – when we have been living for so long being sick or hurting or broken – that it just feels “normal.” It's time to break out of the haze and step into the light! In this season of restoration, God wants to help us get off the mat (literally!) and walk into the life that we have been waiting for. Come and receive the hope and encouragement we all need.
Into the Deep
April 11, 2021 • Pastor Dominic Done
Hellen Keller once wrote, “Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all.” One of the key moments in life is when you realize the desires God has put in you are more important than the fear that shouts at you. Yes, the fear is real: the fear of failure, of what others think, of an unknown future…But deep down, you know you can’t remain dormant or passive. You need to step out in faith, trust the Lord, and say “yes” to his best for your life. Join us as we look at Scripture to see what steps of faith look like, how to take them, and how to grow into our calling.
Jesus Heals The Lepers
February 7, 2021 • Pastor Robby Winkler
We’re all looking for healing in one way or another, and at the tail end of a year like 2020 and the front end of a new year that (so far) feels no different, many of us feel confronted head-on with our own needs in a way we never have been before...What does Jesus say to us in this space? What will he do, and how might he surprise us? When Jesus decides to move in his people to restore them, he never does just one thing at a time. When God restores his people, he multi-tasks, restoring us from the inside out––a reality we’ll see in high-definition in Luke 17.

In every great story of fiction, we find a few key characters: there’s always a hero trying to head home, and there are always characters trying to help or hinder the hero. In the same way, our own choices can either help or hinder our journeys forward. Reliving the past makes us our own worst enemies––it keeps us stuck, often in shame or regret, and unable to progress! As 2020 winds down, if we look ahead and keep our eyes fixed on the one who holds our futures, we can move forward without anxiety. And that’s the journey we want to get going on, together as a family of faith!
November 29, 2020 • Pastor Gabe Moreno
It’s a funny law of the universe––as we thank God for what we have, we naturally start to become less greedy and more generous. Thanksgiving isn’t just a holiday we celebrate in the United States, it’s a way of life and the “antidote” to some of our deepest issues! As we study Paul’s words in 2 Corinthians 9 together, we’ll find the key to our own cheerfulness and our generosity to others lies in the same place: a life of gratitude.
Wind and Water
March 8, 2020 • Gabe Moreno
We call them “storms” for a reason –– difficult seasons of life shake us up and rock us to our core. Ultimately, suffering has one of two effects for each of us: to break us down, or to grow us up, and we get to choose which outcome is ours. Join us for a special message about how to weather the storms of life...and come out the other side, not uprooted, but rooted more deeply than ever before in what’s truly good for us.

We’ve all heard the phrase “...put yourself in their shoes…”. While this may speak to the wisdom needed in waiting to make a judgement on a person’s character, it is also a commitment to consider the many potential burdens a person may be carrying in a given season. Jesus offers His strength and grace when it comes to lifting heavy burdens; instead of pointing out our many weaknesses. Our response is to bring all burdens to His feet and follow where He chooses to lead us.
The Work Of Ministry
November 10, 2019 • Daniel Fusco
We are all called and empowered by Jesus to be a part of His transformational work in this world. As we always say, “Transformed people transform people.” As Jesus is transforming us, He invites us to partner with Him to help others know Him and be transformed. This process is called the “work of ministry” and we will be exploring that together today.

It seems like the whole world is fracturing. Look at our own nation. Whether it’s about homelessness, guns, violence, healthcare, or a host of other issues, we are far more divided than united, and it’s not getting any better. Is it just possible God has a better way, that he designed us for more?
October 27, 2019 • Gabe Moreno
Love is what we all want most - none of us will argue with that. Whether we’re looking for someone else’s love, wishing we knew how to love ourselves better, or longing for a deeper experience of God’s love, our lives revolve around love in so many ways. At the same time, we don’t always have a clear picture of what love should be like, or how we can find satisfaction for the deepest desires we encounter in life. So join us this Sunday for a message all about love, as we redefine our understanding with the best definition of love out there: God’s.
Truth Plus Love
September 1, 2019 • Matt Brown
Imagine what our world might look like if Christians became known for remarkable love, as well as life-giving truth. In our rush to speak truth to today’s cultural issues, it’s all too easy for us to focus on proving our points rather than extending God’s grace. But when we seek only to love but never proclaim a better way, we short-circuit God’s plan. As followers of Jesus, we need to be known for both truth and love. Join us this Sunday as we learn how to influence the world the way Jesus would.
The End From The Beginnging
June 2, 2019 • Gabe Moreno
So often, we want the benefits of our long-term goals...but we give into short-term appetites instead. We try to satisfy ourselves with things that bring instant gratification, and we give up too easily on what we’re really hoping for. But as we follow Jesus, the hard work we put in in the middle of our stories is the launchpad for the joy God promises us in the end. Join us this Sunday as we learn about the key to resting in our future joy in the here and now, no matter what’s going on.
May 19, 2019 • Bill Ritchie
How do we really experience peace when so often it seems like the whole world is falling apart? When we’re filled with longing for things to change in our circumstances or relationships, how do we find contentment? If you’ve looked everywhere for peace and security and it still seems out of reach, don’t miss this week’s message! Join us as we learn from the Apostle Peter how to unlock the peace we’ve all been waiting for.
When Faith Fails
March 17, 2019 • Dominic Done
Doubt -- we don’t like to talk about it. But like it or not, life can throw our faith into confusion. Maybe it’s overwhelming grief at the loss of a loved one, the seeming discrepancies between science and the Bible or hurt at the hands of the church...Whatever it is, whenever we don’t know what God is doing in our lives, it’s hard. But there’s a beautiful secret to doubt -- it can actually be the key to greater intimacy with Jesus if we allow our questions to lead us back to him. Join us this Sunday as we seek God in the midst of doubt, together!
Lost and Found
March 3, 2019 • Gabe Moreno
They say the pain of losing $20 is more severe than the joy of having it in your pocket. All of us know what it feels like to lose something and how sweet it is to recover what was once lost. When it came to relationships, Jesus prioritized recovering and restoring what was once lost. Join us as we look closely at the purpose of separation and the joy of restoration as we study the parable of the prodigal son.
May 30, 2018 • Gabe Moreno
For many of us, life feels like we’re traveling over the speed limit on a long stretch of Highway with no end in sight. For too long we have believed the wrong things about how to have a meaning filled life. In his letter to the Philippians, the Apostle Paul outlines how to get an A+ on the assignment of life. Join us Wednesday night as we uncover what Jesus desires for each and everyone of us on this journey.
From Doubt to Faith
May 20, 2018 • Robert Furrow
Doubt is part of our human story. And at points in our life, most of us even doubt God. But there's good news in John 20 for anyone who doubts! Jesus gives us everything we need to bridge us from doubt to faith. So join us for this week's message, as we learn what it means to have faith in a God we can't see.

Michael’s ability to communicate visually with clay, combined with Pam’s musical gifts, create a powerful narrative illustrated by touching stories that range from hilarious to deeply emotional. Anyone who has experienced brokenness in their life will identify with this presentation.

"Cause I got to have faith" was the chorus to George Michael's song Faith playing all over the radio in 1987. Nothing could be closer to the truth for God's people today. Everyday, we exercise faith without even realizing it. Faith that oncoming drivers stay in their lane, faith that the food we're about to eat is not poisoned, and so on. Yet, if we're honest with ourselves we often fail to have faith in God when things don't according to our plans. Our starting point with God is faith. It is basis of our relationship with God and the path to pleasing God. Join me Wednesday night as we explore the importance of faith in transforming our experience with God.
