06.02.19 - Reconciliation

Having real, authentic friendships in our digital age is hard enough, but how to we even begin to reconcile a friendship that is broken or lost? In this week's message, we will look at how to restore these tenuous relationships and what truly loving one another with the love of Christ looks like in our every day lives.

05.26.19 - Who Do You Follow?

We all have a few lingering unhealthy relationships that we know are pulling us farther from our relationship with Jesus, but we don't necessarily know how or when to click the "unfollow" button on the friendship. This week, Topher & Rachel talk about how maintaining healthy boundaries helps us grow closer to our friends and to God.

05.19.19 - #nofilter

Sometimes it's easy to put a filter on your social media presence. When you only show people the good things in your life, it's easy for others to assume that life is great and you have your act together. But what do we do when life gets tough and that filter gets hard to maintain? In this week's message, we'll talk about what it means to be honest with others about where we are at, and how to treat one another with a balance of both grace and truth.

05.12.19 - Choose Your Friends Wisely

People say that you are the average of your five closest friends. If that is true, then it is imperative to your growth to pay attention to who gets into that friend circle. In this message, we will look at Jesus’s friendships, how he chose them and maintained them, and learn some lessons for how we can do the same.

Note: Due to a technical error with the sound board, the first 2-3 minutes of the audio is missing. The audio picks up just after Chris launches into the sermon, so no necessary content for understanding the message is missed.

05.05.19 - You've Got A Friend In Me

In this digital age, we are more connected than ever before. Study after study shows that for all this connection we are as lonely as ever. We all long for connection and to build lasting friendships. But how do we do that well? In this series, we will look at what the scripture teaches about friendship and learn how we can build deeper relationships in our lives.

04.27.19 - The Aftermath

Perhaps you’ve heard the Easter story - that Jesus Christ died and came back from the dead. But what difference did that make to those who were his followers? Where did the movement go from there? In this message, we look at the aftermath of the resurrection and see what can change in us because of it.

04.14.19 - The Trial

In the final days of his earthly ministry, we see how Jesus deals with extreme stress, violence, unfair accusations, and injustice. How can we, like Jesus, handle the most difficult aspects of life with patience, grace, and humility?

In this week's message, we discover the truth about how Jesus leads his people, and how we can faithfully follow him through some of the most painful moments of our lives.
