Life Flowing Together
November 5, 2017
For several weeks now, we've been talking about the six streams of spirituality which carry us into the deeper presence of God. But these streams are not independent of one another. They flow in and out of one another strengthening each other as they do. On November 5th, 2017, we learned how together these six streams transform us and our witness.

The Sacramental Life
October 29, 2017
"...it was in Antioch that the disciples were first called 'Christians'" (Acts 11:26). The secular community called them "little Christs" as their inner transformation boiled over into their everyday lives. On October 29th, 2017, we learne to become sacraments pointing to God's character and work and incarnations as we give flesh to the Spirit of God within us.

The Word-Centered Life
October 22, 2017
The writer of the book of Hebrews tells us, “…the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword..." Yet, we seem to have forgotten the power of the Word, or at the very least, misunderstood its depth and purpose. On October 22nd, 2017, we learned the significance of diving into the living and active Word and how it leads us to Jesus, the Friend of sinners.

The Compassionate Life
October 15, 2017
In the Christian community, we often speak of Jesus as our example to follow. But if that is true, why do we often struggle with being "filled with compassion" like Jesus. On October 15th, 2017, we learned to open our hearts to the world as we seek to transform the people, institutions, and societies around us.

The Spirit-Empowered Life
October 1, 2017
Father, Son, and Holy… huh, there are few topics in the Christian faith which have brought about so much confusion like that of the Spirit of God. With so many questions as to the character and work of the Holy Spirit, it is no wonder why the church has struggled to grasp what it means to be charismatic. On October 1st, 2017, we learned how to live lives empowered by the Holy Spirit. Please join us in reading Jeremiah chapter 20 in preparation for this message: The Spirit-Empowered Life.

The Virtuous Life
September 24, 2017
Since the fall of humankind, we have struggled with a desire for sin, making the perfectly holy life impossible - bar One. Many Christians in our modern day have never truly followed Christ simply because Jesus was only held up as a Savior and not as an example to follow. On September 24th, 2017, we learned what it means to be holy and how we can transform our lives through "holy habits."

The Prayer-Filled Life
September 17, 2017
We often think of prayer as a conversation with God, but how does a mere conversation transform who we are? On September 17th, 2017, we learned that Jesus invites us into something far deeper than a simple conversation, he invites us into a life filled with prayer.

Preparing for the Spiritual Life
September 10, 2017
Jesus offered life in all its fullness, but why is it that life so often feels full in all the wrong ways. Could we be missing something in his teaching that, in turn, leaves us wanting for more? On September 10th, 2017, we learned to prepare for something deeper. Please join us in reading Matthew 22, Luke 14, and John 8, 15 in preparation for this message: Preparing for the Spiritual Life.
