Why Worship Matters

August 20, 2017 • Pastor Jack Schull & Panel

As we dive into looking at why worship matters - we wanted to expand our scope and our voice tonight. So we've got a panel of Elements partners who help us examine the role, benefits and our understanding of worship and why it should be a rhythm in our life. Here's a quick definition: "Worship is our response to the revelation of who God is." And it's way more than a song.

Why Prayer Matters

September 10, 2017 • Pastor Jack Schull

Tonight we want to talk about WHY Prayer Matters?! What's the intent of prayer and how can making it a pattern in your life actually refuel your soul? Prayer is one of the most common phenomena of human life. Prayer was vitally important to Jesus – he modeled it well and often, because for Jesus it wasn’t just a PRIORITY, it was a NECESSITY. Truth: Prayer is a learned behavior and nobody is born an expert at it and prayer is a habit that matters.

Why Sabbath Matters

September 3, 2017 • Pastor Jack Schull

The practice of Sabbath is remembering that we are not what we produce. We are valued because of WHOSE we are, not what we do. We are a human BEING, not a human DOING.The rhythm of SABBATH matters to our physical, mental, emotional well-being and ultimately to our spiritual growth and maturity.

Why Discipleship Matters

August 13, 2017 • Pastor Jack Schull

We're looking at what discipleship is and why it matters. Jesus doesn't invite people into following a path or a plan, he invites us to follow him. A person. It's not having him as an accessory to our life, it's finding our lives in following him. If we were to better define it, we might say "it's apprenticing Jesus." It's less about activity FOR JESUS and more about proximity WITH JESUS – because when you spend time in proximity with Jesus, you’ll begin to pick up his rhythms, habits and heart. *tonight we also take a moment to take a stand against racism in Jesus name.
