Really Close - 2 Kings 2:1-14

Really Close - 2 Kings 2:1-14

May 24, 2020

Do you believe that God is up to something great in the world?

   Do you believe that God has a great purpose for you in helping build that great future He is creating?

Through the story of Elijah and Elisha, one of the lessons God teaches us is that we need to get Really Close so that we don't miss out on the great things into which He is inviting us.

     God is creating an incredible future...

        are we close enough to hear His words inviting us to participate in creating that incredible future?

Do you believe that God is up to something great in the world?

   Do you believe that God has a great purpose for you in helping build that great future He is creating?

If you don't believe that, you are missing out on something great!

   If you do believe that, what is holding you back from joining Him in building a great future?

Listen in as we continue following Elijah's story and how God is in the process of redeeming him...

& how God wants to redeem us too!

Clear the Mechanism

Clear the Mechanism

May 11, 2020

Is God really active in the world today?

Does God really play a role in anything anymore?

Is God just a passive observer?

Sometimes we need to learn that God does not only work in BIG, spectacular, earth-shaking ways. The One, True God also works in the infinitely small things...the seemingly monotonous and tedious things in life.

How do we know what God is up to if we do not see gigantic, miraculous signs?

Listen in and "Clear the Mechanism"...then, hear the still small voice inviting into something miraculous! 

Losing “Loft”

Losing “Loft”

There's an old Greek saying; "You will break the bow if you keep it always bent."

What happens when we don't care for ourselves? What happens when we fill every moment with "stuff"?

Aren't we supposed to always be doing something "productive" and have some tangible end result?

     Let's learn from Elijah what happens when we don't make space and care for ourselves.

          God invites us to create empty space for Him alone to fill. What does that look like?

Adventurously Expectant

Adventurously Expectant

April 26, 2020

God does not call us to live "timid, grave-tending" lives. Jesus came, lived, died, and rose again so that we might have the Full Life!

A Full Life is a life lived with adventurous expectation of what God HAS done in the past, IS doing right now, and WILL do in the future. A Full Life is a life of faith...A life of confident assurance in who God is and that He is up to great things.

Join us as we learn how to live Adventurously Expectant from the prophet Elijah...

In a time of fear, anxiety, frustration, & unknown...

    Where do we turn?

        What brings fulfillment?

            Where do we find hope, peace, joy...?

In 1 Kings 18, we find a great example of where we find answers to these questions.

He Chose Us…

He Chose Us…

April 15, 2020

Jesus knew, for a long time, what He needed to do and what He needed to endure. Despite knowing all that He knew, He still chose us! He knew we had no other hope or option. He had every possible option, but He still chose us...

Expectations (MaundyThursday)

Expectations (MaundyThursday)

April 10, 2020

What expectations do we have of Jesus and this life we are called to live? How do our expectations affect our perceptions and perspectives?

This is an excerpt of our Maundy-Thursday Communion service where we were able to see each other and get a check-in from all those who were present. This recording is just of the short message and an impromptu closing song (which makes for an interesting montage of those who joined us for the service!)

Forsaken…

Forsaken…

March 29, 2020

Some of Jesus' last words from the cross are, "My God, my God, why have You forsaken me?"

I've always been confused by this...I thought God promised to never leave us or forsake us!?!? So,what was Jesus talking about? What did He mean? And, what does this mean for us today? (MUCH more than we may even realize!)
