Why Church

Church is much more than attending worship and giving every now and then. Church is a commitment to live the life Jesus calls us to live – one of love, service, and community. Let’s embrace those virtues to live even more like Jesus. Let’s find out how that integrity can transform our community.

Weekly Sermons

September 10 |  Believe  |  Exodus 14:10-14, 21-25
When we believe God is up to something in our midst, we pray differently, and most importantly, we act differently. How can we live out our faith in ways that lead to deeper convictions? Challenge yourself to pray fervently, boldly and specifically for great things to happen in our midst.

September 17  |  Welcome  |  Romans 15:7-9, 14-21
Church is more than a kind welcome. It’s about going deeper in faith and service to the world. Offer someone a treat and welcome note when they visit a church. Invite someone into your life group, sit with them in worship or pick them up for a service opportunity – it can be life-changing. Discover where you can be welcoming and how it challenges you to grow deeper in faith.

September 24  |  Love  |  Colossians 3:12-17 
One reason the church exists is to be in partnership and grace with the surrounding community. How can we extend love to our community? How can we love where we are planted?

October 1  |  Reach  |  Romans 1:8-17  |  Communion Sunday
Evangelism – it’s not a bad word! Jesus calls us to practice evangelism relentlessly, singularly and unapologetically. We live in a world hungry for a better way to live, work and play together without fear of each other. Jesus is a way to live as our best selves and invite others to join us.
