July 14, 2019 | Speaker Matt Hama

MEET GENERATION Z – From one generation to another

June 9, 2019 | Pastor Darren Young

ALL WHO ARE WEARY – Learning to keep pace with Jesus

May 19, 2019 | Pastor Matt Myers

Scripture:  Luke 5:16, Mark 1:35, Matthew 14:23 Theme:  In the midst of the modern age we want more, use more, own more, and endlessly seek to achieve more. Jesus models the ancient practice of slowing down, finding solitude and offering an alternative pace that serves to break the restless cycle and find rest for the soul. As we learn to keep pace with Jesus we may just find the love, joy, and peace that mark his reality.

May 12, 2019 | Pastor Darren Young

Scripture:  Luke 10:38-42 Theme:  None of us can escape the constant demands and distractions that confront us. People. Technology. Kids. Expectations. It is relentless. How do we find a rhythm of health and rest in the midst of a busy and demanding world?

 May 5, 2019 | Pastor Darren Young

 Scripture:  Mark 2:23-28, Genesis 2:1-3, Exodus 20:8-11 Theme:  The world constantly pushes and pulls us. It demands of us. Time. Technology. Work. Expectations. Distractions.

April 28, 2019 | Pastor Darren Young

Scripture:  Matthew 11:28-30 Theme:  The bible honestly confronts the reality of a weary and worn down humanity. A world of emotional scars, mental health, shame, unanswered hopes and pain.

April 21, 2019 | Pastor Darren Young

Scripture:  Acts 9:3-9, John 20:19 Theme:  Paul experienced the resurrected Jesus and it forever changed him. Paul’s testimony, along with so many other men and women throughout time, is the foundation upon which we stand. On Resurrection Sunday, we bring our testimony.

JESUS + NOTHING – Gospel Love

April 14, 2019 | Pastor Matt Myers

Scripture:  Galatians 5:25-6:1-18 Theme:  The Gospel transforms how we understand ourselves and therefore how we relate to others. We are empowered to put others first through self-giving love and service, just as Jesus did for us.

JESUS + NOTHING – Gospel Fruit

April 7, 2019 | Pastor Darren Young

Scripture:  Galatians 5:16-25 Theme:  Many of us prefer to run from conflict, but Paul wants us to know that we grow as we battle.

JESUS + NOTHING – Gospel Freedom

March 31, 2019 | Pastor Darren Young

Scripture:  Galatians 5:1-15 Theme:  In the most definitive way possible, Paul tells us that Jesus’ mission was an operation of liberation. If we’re not careful however, our freedom in Jesus can slip through our fingers. Paul’s sets out to show us how to experience our freedom.

JESUS + NOTHING – Gospel Transformation

March 17, 2019 | Pastor Darren Young

Scripture:  Galatians 3:1-25 Theme:  The gospel is not simply how we are saved, it is also the means by which we grow in our faith. We grow and thrive by allowing the Holy Spirit to apply the gospel to every area of our life, moment by moment.

 

JESUS + NOTHING - Gospel Transformation

JESUS + NOTHING – Gospel Unity

March 10, 2019 | Pastor Darren Young

Scripture:  Galatians 2:1-21 Theme:  A Christian in Canada has far more in common with a gospel-believer in Mongolia than he does with a non-believer who lives on his street, dresses like him and drives a similar car. What unites Christians is the grace and hope we experience in Jesus. We never allow cultural differences of dress, customs or preferences to become moral absolutes that obscure our gospel unity.

JESUS + NOTHING - Gospel Unity

by Pastor Darren Young

JESUS + NOTHING – Gospel Fight

March 3, 2019 | Pastor Darren Young

Scripture:  Galatians 1:1-9 Theme:  Paul was not a mathematician, but he understood a basic gospel calculation: to add to Jesus was to subtract Jesus altogether. Any gospel revision, however small, makes the gospel null and void (Tim Keller). That is Paul’s concern in his letter to the Galatians. Paul confronts and fights against substitute versions of the gospel that have no power to save us, restore us or erupt worship in us.

February 17, 2019 | Pastor Daren Young

Scripture:   Acts 10:1-48  Theme:  Peter had no expectation that God wanted to use him to reach the nations. As he put himself in a place of prayer and submission, day in and day out, God awakened him to a greater vision for his life.

SENT – The Story of Jonah

February 10, 2019 | Pastor Daren Young

Scripture:   Jonah 1-4  Theme:  Jonah was a good and religious man who loved God. But Jonah lacked a heart for lost people. The story of Jonah is God exposing and re-shaping Jonah’s heart (and our heart) with the heart of Jesus for the nations.

HELP – The Story of Joshua

February 3, 2019 | Pastor Daren Young

Scripture:   Joshua 10:5-14  Theme:  God told Joshua to be strong and courageous in leading the people into the promised land.

Scripture: 1 Kings 17-19  Theme:  James (in his writings) tells us that Elijah was a man just like us. And yet he prayed with a boldness and power that most of us have not experienced. What was it about Elijah’s journey with God that made his prayers so powerful?

HELP – The Story of Hannah

January 13, 2019 | Pastor Daren Young

Scripture: 1 Samuel 1:1-28  Theme:  The bible is filled with men and women who cried out desperately to God for help. Hannah was a barren second wife – ridiculed and humiliated by the wife who easily bore children. Hannah wept and pleaded with God for a son, promising to give him back to the Lord. God would answer her prayer, but her story is not primarily defined by the son she would bare, but the God she would encounter in her brokenness.

January 6, 2019 | Pastor Matt Myers

December 16, 2018 | Pastor Darren Young

Scripture: Matthew 2:1-18 Theme:  “Love pursues blindly, unflinchingly and without end. Even if it costs everything.” – Bob Goff. Jesus came not only to speak of love, show us love and act lovingly, but to lay down his life and give everything, for all of humanity.

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.

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.

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!
