Engage Mtown: Joy

December 3, 2017

what is joy? “Joy is a good feeling in the soul, produced by the Holy Spirit, as he causes us to see the beauty of Christ in the word and in the world.” - John Piper

The Holidays are often filled with grief, unmet expectations, and pain, but that does not mean we can't simultaneously experience joy. The prophet Joel writes about deep joy even amidst heartache, financial calamity, and unmet expectations. Join us as we uncover the joy that we can have, even amidst decimation and desolation.

ENGAGEMtown 2017: Hope

November 26, 2017

"The God of hope pursues your past and present in order to transform your future". - Pastor Ryan

Pastor Ryan kicks off our #EngageMtown2017 series with a look at the powerful story of two weirdly named people, Hosea and Gomer. One a prophet. The other a prostitute. Both loved by God. Through their story, God is weaving together a powerful picture of hope, 2nd chances, and the excitement of the coming Messiah.

dysFUNCTIONAL: Paradigm Shift

November 19, 2017

"In God’s economy of grace no one is slighted, forgotten, or fooled." - Erin Ryden

We wrap up our series, with the surprising reconciliation of brothers Esau and Jacob. Erin shows us how God used this crazy sibling rivalry to highlight His crazier grace. God's grace unfolds as Jacob realizes what blessing truly is, and why he was blessed. For more information check out www.restoremtown.com 


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?

Seasons: Growth

October 15, 2017

"We ALL have GREAT potential for growth!" 

Like summer follows spring, God’s desire is to take the seed of new life in you, and begin to grow and develop it.  Join us, as we dig into the potential "sinking ship" in Matthew 8, and see why some people's potential remains untapped and, other's potential becomes a strong, durable and resistant faith.

Seasons: New Life

October 8, 2017

“There is nothing so stable as change.” - Bob Dylan
Genesis 8:22 “As long as the earth remains, there will be planting and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night.”

New life is Jesus' default. Wherever He goes, whatever He touches, whatever He speaks into, new life happens. Join us as we dig into what it means to consistently have new life in our faith.

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.
