Hope for the World

4 Week Series
12-7-08 through 12-28-08

It is not easy for us to escape “department store” Christmas. Starting sometime shortly after Halloween, the commercial push toward Christmas challenges the true images of the birth of Jesus Christ. Our antiseptic view of the nativity – all tinsel, smiles, and lights – does not exactly match the reality. Jesus was born in the context of scandal, poverty and violence. God, who could incarnate himself in any way -- chooses this way – to bring the Savior into the world. In this series, we look for a truer image of Jesus and we look at how He is truly the “hope of the world.”

Project Thanksgiving

5 Week Series
11-2-08 through 11-30-08

We have been created by God to be people who are thankful and give thanks to God. However, we live in a culture that tends to neglect giving thanks not only to God but even to one another. God’s people have a great history of being people who give thanks. In our lives, it’s not that we don’t give thanks at all, but much like the attention we give to our own breathing (in that we don’t think much about it at all until we can’t); too often we don’t actively pursue giving thanks as a major activity of our life. But we should! Being thankful is an essential part of being in relationship with God. Learning how to give thanks better will always draw us closer to God. In this series, we examine the transformative power of giving thanks and we engage in a month of actively “giving thanks in all circumstances.”

Identity Theft Prevention

4 Week Series
10-5-08 through 10-26-08

The church of Jesus Christ is a revolutionary thing. Filled with the “good news” of the gospel and the power of the Holy Spirit, the church is amazing and should experience powerful things. But is this what we see? In today’s world, “church” is too often viewed as something superficial, irrelevant and inconsequential to life. It is almost as if someone has stolen the true identity of the church. In this series, we focus on the central message and mission of the church. We highlight the gospel message and how it transforms the life of all who hear it and makes sense out of the church in the world today.

Monkey Bars

6 Week Series
8-24-08 through 9-28-08

People get very accustomed to living in the world. Sometimes we get so comfortable that even wrong things look right and right things look wrong. Like hanging from Monkey Bars, things can look really “upside down.” In reality, the world is “upside down” when we look through the eyes of Jesus. Jesus responds to situations in ways that are often diametrically opposite of how the world responds to the very same situations. In this lesson series, we examine who Jesus is and we look at things from Jesus’ perspective, which explains why He was right side up in an “upside down” world.

Called:

9 Week Series
6-22-08 through 8-17-08

Nothing about God is accidental. Each of us is called by God for a purpose of value and worth. While the way to connect ourselves with God’s will for our lives may not always seem clear, Abraham’s experiences lead us to a deeper understanding of God’s purpose and how He calls His people, but we must be willing to answer like Abraham.

The Clothesline

6 Week Series

The gift of family is one of God’s greatest blessings. Yet, many families are sruggling. Every day, people look for help on television and radio, or in books. These can be helpful. However, nothing has more to offer us than God’s Word—the greatest source of wisdom for life in the family. No matter how dirty our “laundry” is, God can make it white as snow. He does so, right in our own backyards… at a place we might call, “The Clothesline.”
