Love Comes First

Pastor Sean Palmer begins a series that will unfold in the coming weeks as we consider our call to greater love, directed by the love we first receive from God. In a world that views many Christians as a core part of the problem, in a culture shaped by “me first”, the only solution is the tireless commitment to love first; even and especially when it’s not easy.

Advent Conspiracy: Love All

On this final Sunday of Advent, Pastor Chris Seay teaches from the first epistle of John, and our call to live with a pattern of gracious love for all; evidenced by way we care for those in need. Whether in Argentina, Zambia, or here in our own city, and everywhere in between, we are to be the hands and feet of our Savior; the active presence of a love that has no boundaries.

Advent - Week Four: Expansive

During this final week of Advent, we invite you to join us in a rhythm of pause and reflection as we continue to consider our call to be radically changed by the arrival of Jesus into the world. Join us as we reflect on what it means to love all; to widen our tables to reflect the expansive love of God and the incarnate example of our Savior. We pray that this collection of music, prayer, and meditation will be a blessing and encouragement to you this week.

Advent - Week Three: Meaningful

In this sacred season, we invite you to pause and join us in rhythms of reflection on the coming of our Savior. As we continue to consider our call to be radically changed by the arrival of Jesus into the world, how will we give more of our intentional time and presence; with loved ones, and all whom we share the gift of God’s Incarnation? We pray that this collection of music, prayer, and meditation will be a blessing and encouragement to you this week.

More

Our thanks to guest preacher Judy West for leading us this weekend in our continuing journey through the sacred season of Advent. As we consider what it means for us to be a people who give more, we are reminded that the gift of God’s incarnation was, and is, intentional, sacrificial, and personal.

Over the coming weeks, we will consider our renewed call to be radically changed by the arrival of Jesus into the world. As we seek to spend less, may we embrace the identity of a people of abundance, and not scarcity. We pray that this collection of music, prayer, and meditation would be a blessing and encouragement to you this week.

When Less Is Loving

Pastor Sean Palmer leads us into an Advent season of great expectation as we anticipate Jesus’ coming and seek to worship fully, spend less, give more, and love all. Sean invites us to consider how we might spend less in this season, to ask ourselves what is “enough”, and to commit to rhythms of limitation and simplicity that allow us to share even more as a family with communities in great need from the abundance that God has provided.
