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?

Breathe: Big Picture

September 5, 2017

Exodus 16:35 "So the people of Israel ate manna for FORTY YEARS. until they arrived at the land where they would settle. They ate manna until they came to the border of the land of Canaan."

We wrap up our Breathe series, by looking at the big picture. We all want God's promises to be fulfilled yesterday, but as the Israelites 40 years attest to, that's not how it works. 

God’s Promises don’t come with an ETA but with a TBD.

Join us as we dig into why God's promises often aren't fulfilled for long periods of time.

Breathe: Earning God

August 21, 2017

“If you attempt to overcome insecurity by achievement, there is no end to that vicious circle.”- Dan Reiland

Why don’t we breathe? 

Why don’t we grab a hold of the Promises of God?

Because of a distorted view of God:
God claims to be Good (Character) and Great (Capabilities). We don't stop to breathe, because we don't think God is as good or as great as He says. It’s a limit of His character (goodness) or his capabilities (greatness)

 

Join us as we continue our #Breathe series and exploration of Exodus 16. Today we dig into the idea of trying to earn God. For more information check out restoremtown.com

"They must realize that the sabbath is God's gift to you" Exodus 16:29

In our series #Breathe, we are digging into God’s interaction with the Israelites in the desert (Exodus 16)…in between Egypt and the Promised Land. and ask ourselves the question they asked 4,000 years ago.
How do we get from Egypt to the Promised Land?
How do we get from slavery to freedom to fulfillment?
From Charlottesville to unity?

The Table

July 23, 2017

"My personal philosophy on church comes from AA . We are a community of people in recovery seeking to become whole. Whether you are 40 years sober, 10 days sober, or hungover, we are a community seeking to support, challenge, equip, and restore who we were created to be. I am perpetually perplexed why people get nervous or self-righteous when the church becomes a haven (aka safe place) for people from all walks of life and all stages of recovery."

Join us as we dig into the question, "Who gets to gather around the table with Jesus?"
