Seed Thought #8
March 19, 2017 • March 19, 2017 • Jeremy Peters
For most people, when considering a vehicle that will take them where they want to go, a key consideration is this: what vehicle will give me the best possible fuel efficiency? There are several things about our current vehicle for ministry, that is our existing facility, that significantly limit our current level of ministry efficiency.

How Do We Change?
September 20, 2015 • Jeremy Peters
Whether you consider yourself a religious person or not, you are being spiritually formed. Our inner being is being spiritually formed all the time by what we watch, by who we listen to, by what we read. In fact, marketers are masters of spiritual formation. But what if someone wanted to be shaped by a more reliable Source of information on how to experience the Good Life? Is change really possible? How?

Seed Thought #7
March 12, 2017 • March 12, 2017 • Jeremy Peters
Now it’s clear that Jesus is calling us well beyond our physical building to the places where we live, learn, work and play. Indeed, a vehicle itself does not produce ‘life,’ nor is it the only place or even the primary place where life is found. But it does often help us get to where we want to go. So as we’ve considered some of these values, as it relates to the ‘vehicle’ that helps us move forward in ministry, there are some things we discover as it relates to the outworking of our vision and ministry in our existing facility. In this Seed Thought - Pastor Jeremy talks about safety ratings.
The Pathway to Significance
September 27, 2015 • Jeremy Peters
Sometimes Christians live as though Jesus was only concerned that we believe certain things about him and we become more concerned to make a point than to make a difference. But the path to significance and experience of the Good Life doesn't rest on the belief of a set of intellectual propositions, but rather on the dominant characteristic demonstrated in and through Jesus' life.
Seed Thought #6
March 5, 2017 • March 5, 2017 • Jeremy Peters
When undertaking for a project of the size and scope of the Seed Project (which is the name we have given to the process of our Building Redevelopment), it is of utmost importance to be clear on ‘why’ we would go to all the effort and all the expense to see the vision of a redeveloped facility come to fruition. Watch as Pastor Jeremy shares the next Seed Thought!
May 1, 2016 • Matt Garvin
Recent Research indicates a growing group of people who are done with church but not done with Jesus. The church they are done with is not the church that Paul describes in the book of Ephesians. This week we will be catching a glimpse of the radical vision that Paul had for the church on the basis of what he understood as God’s primary purpose.

Sermon of the Week: Why Baptism Matters
June 25, 2017 Sermon • June 25, 2017 • Jeremy Peters
There is perhaps no other symbolic act that more powerfully reflects the reality of a new chapter, of new life, than that of baptism. Why is that? What is baptism and why does it matter? Why is it so important in the life of an apprentice of Jesus?
May 8, 2016 • Matt Garvin
As we begin our wrestle in Ephesians 4 with what it really means to live a life worthy of the calling we have received, the Apostle Paul’s first and biggest concern seems to be with people in the church learning to relate well with each other. As we engage with Ephesians 4:2-6, Pastor Matt will be exploring what it actually means for us as a church and individuals to “make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit."
Does God Heal Today?
November 20, 2016 • Jeremy Peters
Does God heal today? While most people of faith would answer this question affirmatively, the reality is that most of us would like to see it ‘up close and personal’ far more often than we do. This Sunday we will be tracking with the Alpha Film Series as they address this topic with hope, inspiration and invitation to keep asking God for a felt sense of His healing presence.
Refined Through Fire
February 19, 2017 • February 19, 2017 • Jeremy Peters
The metaphor that life is test is seen right throughout the bible – God continually tests people’s character, faith, obedience, love, integrity, and loyalty. Words like trials, temptations, refining and testing occur more than 200x in the bible. The question is, ‘how do we navigate life’s testing and trials in a way that refines us to be more like Jesus?’ Pastor Jeremy continue our series, “Pathways to the King.”
How & Why Do I Read the Bible?
November 6, 2016 • November 6, 2016 • Matt Garvin

This week Pastor Matt will be exploring what it means to be able to find our bearings in a confusing world through the Bible which is the word of God.
First Things First

"What does generosity do for people? Is the conventional wisdom right? If you give it away, do you lose it? Or is the unconventional wisdom right? That the more you give, the more you gain?” Listen and be inspired by the amazing faith of a single mom who dared to put God first in her life, and the incredible blessing that came as a result.

As our Stepping into your Story series draws to an end Pastor Matt will preach about what it means to trust that our story is in God’s hands, even when it doesn’t make sense to us.

May 15, 2016 • Nathan Carroll
We are different. We look different. We think different and we have different natural gifts. In addition to all of this, as we come to faith in Jesus, the Holy Spirit gives us spiritual gifts. Pastor Nathan explores what Spiritual Gifts are and what their purpose is as we continue to engage with Ephesians chapter four.
