Ephesians 2:11-22 • September 4, 2016 • Chad Francis
We all long for relationships where we’re known and loved, because we’re made in the image of a God who exists in perfect community – Father, Son, and Spirit. Yet we can’t seem to walk in community as we want to. Relationships are difficult, because our sin has broken God’s design. So Jesus redeems us for community again. Because this redeemed community is the context in which the Spirit of God transforms us, we are committed to pursuing relationships of mutual love, care, and authenticity with other members of our church family.
John 4:1-30 • August 28, 2016 • Chad Francis
Worship is more than the songs we sing, it’s an all of life thing. Our every thought, desire, and action are driven by a deeper thirst, and worship is how we seek to quench that deep soul thirst. Underneath the pain and problems in our lives is a worship problem – trying to quench our soul thirst in places that can’t satisfy us. Jesus came to rescue us from our broken worship, and lead us into true, soul-satisfying worship of God alone.
