In our 'always connected' culture, often times, real rest can be elusive. We can get caught up striving for more and more and even have that mindset slip into our spiritual journey. But the beautiful invitation of the gospel is to a posture of rest. Resting fully in the finished work of Jesus and learning rhythm's of rest as we journey life with Him. Lean into one of the most significant invitations given by Christ. (Matthew 11:25-30)
A Resting Faith

Matthew 13:1-23 • September 16, 2018 • Pastor Jack Schull
We lean into the Parable of the Sower and what Jesus unpacks about the receptivity of the human heart towards the truth, grace and hope of God. We're challenged to cultivate a receptive heart within ourselves and to also share God with whomever, whenever and wherever we're given opportunities. Invest like the Sower. Cultivate a heart that is conditioned well for God's growth in and through you.
Matthew 11:1-5 • September 2, 2018 • Pastor Jack Schull
Doubt isn't something only some encounter in life, it seems to be a part of the human experience. As we pursue after Jesus, doubts and questions might surface in our journey. What do we do in those moments? Disciples are not people who never doubt. They may have doubt, but they choose to lean on Jesus with their doubts. We look at John the Baptist's experience with Jesus in Matthew 11:1-15 and see that Jesus meets us in those moments - he responds, he doesn't rebuke. Our faith can persevere and even grow through seasons of struggle.
Matthew 8:23-27 • August 26, 2018 • Pastor Jack Schull
As a disciple, we’re to grow an INCREASING sense of AWE for ALL of WHO Jesus is. Following after Jesus is a continual encounter with a God who is way bigger than you think He is. Increasing AWE should be an emotion we experience often. Jesus is bigger than your struggles, bigger than your past, bigger than your future worries and BIG ENOUGH for you.
