Scripture: Genesis 12:1-3, Genesis 1:27-28, Matthew 28:18-20 | Theme: This week we focus on our ninth DNA statement: We are Multiplying … we reproduce disciples, leaders and churches who will go and do likewise. God’s plan for restoring all things was the multiplication of disciples, leaders and churches.
We are MULTIPLYING
WE ARE INTENTIONAL + INVITING
November 4th, 2018 | Pastor Darren Young
Scripture: John 1:6:50 | Theme: This week we focus on our eighth DNA statement: We are Intentional + inviting … we diligently craft environments where people can encounter God. We cherish the picture of Jesus inviting his first disciples to ‘come and see’.
We are INTENTIONAL + INVITING
WE ARE ONE GENERATION
October 28th, 2018 | Pastor Darren Young
Scripture: Joshua 3:1-4:24 | Theme: This week we focus on our sixth DNA statement: We are One generation … we live as extended family in our generation and we fight for the next generation. God’s story moves across generations and every generation is to entrust the unfolding story of God to the next generation.
We are ONE GENERATION
WE ARE IN THE DIRT
October 21st, 2018 | Pastor Darren Young
Scripture: John 9:1-15 | Theme: This week we focus on our fifth DNA statement: We are in the dirt … we practice the way of Jesus in the everyday – in our work, relationships, money and rest. Jesus’ invitation isn’t a call to learn rules or beliefs; but a call to learn his ways and restore his presence to every broken place.
We are IN THE DIRT
WE ARE AUTHENTIC + SAFE
October 14th, 2018 | Pastor Darren Young
Scripture: Luke 7:36-50 (reference to Matthew 11:25-12:21) | Theme: This week we focus on our fourth DNA statement: We are Authentic + safe … we live vulnerably, giving one another permission to be real. It was in all our her weariness and shame and weakness that a broken woman came to the feet of Jesus; and in that authenticity (and because of that authenticity) she encountered the heart of God and the fullness of the gospel.
We are AUTHENTIC + SAFE
WE ARE MERCY + JUSTICE
October 7th, 2018 | Pastor Darren Young
Scripture: Luke 4:14-21 | Theme: This week we focus on our seventh DNA statement: We are Mercy + justice … we partner with others in protecting the powerless and caring for the hurting. When Jesus began his ministry, his first ‘sermon’ focused on his commitment to bring mercy + freedom to the poor, captives, disabled and oppressed. Jesus came for those in need. So do we.
We are MERCY + JUSTICE
WE ARE TRUE COMMUNITY
September 23rd, 2018 | Pastor Matt Myers
Scripture: Genesis 2:7-9, John 13, Acts 2 | Theme: This week we take a look at our second DNA statement: We are True Community… we desire everyone known and needed, resisting the pull of mere attending. From the outset of the Bible, humanity hears an invitation to create life-giving communities with God. The question is, have we settled for merely attending when God actually invites us to be culture makers. In reality, it seems we are an integral part of the plan.
We are TRUE COMMUNITY
WE ARE GOSPEL-CENTRED
September 16th, 2018 | Pastor Darren Young
Scripture: Matthew 14:22-33 | Theme: This week we launch into the first of our ten DNA Statements. We begin with: We are Gospel-centred … we cling to Jesus and every word of God’s story, daily learning to unchoose alternatives. When Jesus came, he came as the one who heals and forgives, but also as the one who controls nature and humbles demons; it is because of the totality of who Jesus is, that we cling to him.
We are GOSPEL-CENTRED

Scripture: Luke 19:1-9 | Theme: This week we launch Town + Field Church. The focus is to envision and unite our people to a new season as God moves to restore all things.

DON’T STOP NOW: DON’T STOP SHORT
September 2nd, 2018 | Pastor Darren Young
Scripture: Hebrews 11:32-40 | Theme: God regularly beckons us to keep moving forward in faith. A faith that sustains us, however, is one that trusts in who God is, not one that trusts in our agenda for God. A faith that sustains us through the struggles, is one that knows that God is preparing something better for us. So don’t stop now!
Don’t Stop Short
DON’T STOP NOW: DON’T STOP BELIEVING
August 26th, 2018 | Pastor Darren Young
