dysFUNCTIONAL: What’s your inheritance?

November 13, 2017

"Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life." Proverbs 4:23

As we continue to dig into the crazy story of Isaac, Rebekah, Esau and Jacob, we see the culmination of spousal struggle, sibling rivalry, and selfish motives. Surprisingly, we also see the ridiculously undeserved, but desperately needed, grace of God. 

We will follow our heart. The question is: where will our heart lead us?

dys/FUNCTIONAL: Family is Complicated

November 6, 2017

Family is complicated. 

We love each other, support each other, sacrifice for each other...We compete against each, fight, struggle for position. The holidays magnify all of this. 

We spend 10 months focused on spending time together, and 2 months trying to get away from each other.

In our Dysfunctional series, we are going to look at 1 family, that is part famous and infamous. Faithful/Fearful. Isaac, Rebekah, Esau and Jacob.

Join us as we dig into a crazy family, and God's even crazier grace!

Seasons: Winter

October 29, 2017

In the final week of the Seasons series, Pastor David tackles winter. This season is characterized by suffering. It’s in the times when God says: “no” “wait” or “nothing” that our faith develops perseverance. James 1:3 says, “For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow.”

Seasons: Harvest

October 23, 2017

You Reap what you sow.

 

Harvest is a natural part of the rhythm of life and faith. God uses the harvest to reap the fruit of our labor, and to remove the dead parts that will hinder future growth. Join us as we dig into Jesus and Paul's words on the harvest, and see how TLC taught Pastor Dylan to reap a better harvest. 

What will you keep?

What will you donate?

What will you throw?

Different Posture

October 1, 2017

We have had tons of conversations….no check that…. statements, on what’s the proper posture for us to take. Do we stand…Do we kneel? What is the right thing to do?

How do we know?

How do I know?

We look to our citizenship. 

I am a temporary resident of the United States. I am a citizen of the Kingdom of God.

  • Freedom from Sin defeats Freedom of Speech
  • Christ is greater than the Constitution
  • Cross beats Flag or Fist

What was Jesus' posture? He laid his life down… In the most powerful display in human history

I am not called to STAND or KNEEL; I’m called to lay down.

Different Community

September 24, 2017

“Though we cannot think alike, may we not love alike? May we not be of one heart, though we are not of one opinion? Without all doubt, we may. Herein all the children of God may unite, notwithstanding these smaller differences.” —John Wesley

In our world, community is often defined by sameness, but God has called us to be a different community.  Today we dig into 1 Peter 2:9-12; 3:8-10, and see why unity is so much more than sameness.

  • Sameness is sanitized; Unity is messy
  • Sameness is comfortable; Unity is uncomfortable
  • Sameness is about auto-pilot; Unity is about the Holy Spirit
  • Sameness is about silos; Unity is about building bridges.
  • Sameness is for everyone else; unity is for God's people...A different community.

Different Definition

September 18, 2017

WE NEED MORE HERETICS

  • Our Culture needs heretics
  • Manufacturing needs heretics. Henry Ford was a heretic - if we asked the people what they wanted, they would have said faster horses.
  • Science needs heretics. - Isaac Newton - His law of gravity was called heresy. 
  • Tech is rooted in heretics, Steve Jobs was a tech heretic
  • Music needs heretics - Chuck Berry was a rock n roll heretic.
  • Church needs heretics.
    • Jesus was called a heretic.
    • Martin Luther was called a heretic
    • John Wesley Heretic
    • Billy Graham was called a heretic.
    • Rick Warren was called a heretic.

Heretics change the world.

The best way to be a heretic in the culture and in the church, is to take God at His word. Join us as we dig into what God meant with these words penned by Peter, "1:15 But now you must be holy in everything you do, just as God who chose you is holy. 16 For the Scriptures say, “You must be holy because I am holy.”

Different Faith

September 10, 2017

In this world, you’ll have struggles. You’ll face opposition. You’ll be challenged. And there’s a reason for that: this world is not your home. So answer hate with love, find joy in the midst of trials, and rely on a strength beyond yourself. You’re meant to be … Different

Pastor Ryan kicks off the series, by looking at how a Different Faith. What if God used trials not to punish us, but to deepen our faith? What if our trials aren't to deny God's goodness, but to show His glory?
