This week pastor Shawn continues with week two of our "Great Grace" message series. This week pastor Shawn asks us the question, "Do you see grace as a coverup, or a way of life?" While helping us unpack this question he shows us that there are two different ways to live. In nature, or in grace. As we look at both of these options, we see that God's Grace is big enough to cover all areas of our lives.
"…with great power the apostles were giving their testimony to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and great grace was upon them all."
Acts 4:33, ESV
Have you ever looked at the adversities you're facing, the challenging relationships around you, or other circumstances of your life and thought, "If I could just work a little harder, invest a little more, make people see things from my perspective, then things will be better," only to discover that despite your best efforts the very relationships, challenges or circumstances you had hoped to fix were still broken?
The truth is, we're all aware of aspects of life that not only could, but likely should be different. What if the answer to these things doesn't lie in exhausting our own supply of strength, energy, or resource? What if the first step of seeing renewal come to even the most challenging parts of life doesn't involve us doing anything, but in experiencing and offering something so life-altering it's hard to even comprehend?
Join us as we experience the refreshing reality of God's great grace and discover what it means to understand, receive, embrace, and share it as never before.

This week pastor Shawn continues our 'King Me' message series helping us take a look at the life of King David. We explore the authority of God in our lives, unpacking the cycle of love-trust-obey-know seen in John 14:21 and how we can compromise in any of these four areas. Pastor Shawn gives us three factors to help us avoid stepping out of the authority of God.
Lift up your heads, you gates; be lifted up, you ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in. Who is this King of glory? Psalm 24:7-8a
Within each of us is the desire to be part of something big, glamorous, and of significance in the eyes of others. Whether getting the latest scoop on Hollywood royalty, trying to create our own version of "Camelot," or finding a way to closely emulate someone we admire, it seems this desire for significance and security can drive us to follow any number of people in many different ways. We're all looking for a king.
Scripture is clear that God designed us to have Him as our true King, and we aren't the first ones to struggle with what this might look like. So how do we live in the reality of having Him as our ultimate leader and heart's desire?
Come along with us as we explore four of the different kings of Scripture and discover what it looks like to find ourselves enjoying the security and provision of the One King who gave everything for us.
This week Pastor Shawn concludes our Truth & Dare message series by revealing the four main influences in our lives (God, Self, Others, Satan) and why God needs to be the number one. Through this he unpacks seven realities that affect the way we submit to the authority of God and His word in our Lives, and why this submission is crucial for our daily lives.
This week pastor Nate helps us discover the importance of pursuing unity in the context of church community. Along with this pursuit, we see why we should run from disunity, as well as anything that may cause division amongst one another.
(John 17:20-23) - My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me.
Continuing in our Truth & Dare message series, Pastor Jeremiah helps us discover the biblical truth in dealing with conflict and moving toward forgiveness when someone sins against us. He unpacks the words of Jesus found in Matthew 18:15-20.
(Matthew 18:15) -- “If your brother or sister sins [against you], go and point out their fault, just between the two of you. If they listen to you, you have won them over."
