Our guest teacher, Sarah Thebarge shared pieces of her incredible story; surviving cancer, befriending a Somali refugee family, and serving as a medical missionary in Togo, to consider the meaning of faith, hope, and love. We are called to "the greatest of these", driven by a love that perseveres and lives in action as we seek to join God in the work of healing brokenness in the world.
Guest teacher Jeanne Stevens taught from Paul's letter to the Romans, inviting us to consider the difficult circumstances and battles in our lives in the light of who God has told us he is, and who he tells us that we are. None of us are immune from trial and grief, but all of us are equipped to be more than conquerors with God by our side.
Pastor Chris Seay continues our series drawing from scripture and the unique insight of theologian C.S. Lewis to discuss temporary happiness versus true Christian joy. We discover that true joy is not found in our current circumstances or what we do, but rather based on who we are.
Our guest and brother, Greg Garrett, taught from the Gospel of Luke and shared insights from his book, The Prodigal, co-conceived and written by the late Brennan Manning. God's love is extravagant and his forgiveness is immediate and complete. Every day, we're invited to return home, where he's waiting to run out and embrace us.
Pastor Chris Seay invites us on a walking tour of Jerusalem to visit the likely sites of Jesus' death and Resurrection. In this Easter season, we continue to contemplate how God is working to manifest new life in our midst.
It was an unbelievable weekend of celebration as we gathered as a family to worship our Risen King. Pastor Chris Seay considered the phenomenon of "fake news", and in contrast, the overwhelming evidence of the transformation within the lives of the individuals and communities that bore witness to Jesus' Resurrection; a witness that continues to be passed down to this day and beyond as we seek to know, serve, and share the love of our Savior.
Pastor Chris Seay offered an invitation into Holy Week, continuing to draw from the unique insight of theologian C.S. (Jack) Lewis as we considered the character of Thomas the Apostle and how we handle doubt. Even as we stand shouting "Hosanna!" on this Palm Sunday, will we continue to investigate, wrestling with hard questions, struggling well with a story that defies easy comprehension?
Guest teacher Jonathan Martin continues our recent series exploring scripture and the unique insight of theologian C.S. Lewis. Drawing from The Great Divorce, Jonathan considers the ways that our will exists in tension with God's will for us, and how we're called to submission and release.
Pastor Chris Seay continues our series on the Gospel According to CS Lewis this week as we look at both scripture and Lewis' conversion to study generosity as Christians. Pastor Chris challenges us to live with open hands ready to give but also ready to receive.
Jack Wisdom continued our series using both scripture and the unique insight of theologian C.S. Lewis to consider our lives as a dialogue, with God and one another. In Christ, we are offered true koinonia; community, fellowship, authentic communion, a gift that is to be shared in humility with all who would hear.
