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.

Faith on the GO
Matthew 28:18-20 • October 21, 2018 • Pastor Jack Schull
We're to live on the GO for Jesus. Some of his final words recorded in the gospel of Matthew are to be are first priority! If we’re to live out the Great Commission of Jesus (Matt 28), we must do so with Great Commandment love (Matt 22). We must live it out through our actions AND we must speak about Jesus as we have opportunity. We examined 3 key opportunities available to us as we seek to leverage our lives for Jesus as His disciple.
A Participating Faith
Matthew 25:14-30 • October 14, 2018 • Pastor Jack Schull
Sometimes we are content to be spectators, but being a disciple is NOT for spectators. Christ wants us to jump in with both feet and eagerly participate in his kingdom building. The parable of the talents challenges us to wrestle with the question: 'what are we doing with what's been entrusted to us?' To whom something is given—regardless how great or small —something is required. We've been enfolded into a faith that calls for our participation as we follow after Jesus.
