2,000 years ago Jesus established the church. The first "attendees" were amazed to see that God’s love & mercy were no longer only for the elite. Jesus reclaimed all of humanity & restored our relationship with the Father.
Over time, humanity began to take what was meant to be a beautiful relationship & went back to religion & rules. In time, the very people Jesus came to save were no longer welcomed by "Christians".
God has given us a new vision, energy, & passion to reach those who desperately need to discover who Jesus really is. Join us for Reclamation Series, as we strive to “embrace those who have given up on church, so they can discover Jesus.”
Let’s be honest, relationships are messy. People are messy. Add in the day-to-day stressors, endless errands, and the non-stop on-the-go culture we live in; and before long our relationships suffer or feel completely broken.
Thankfully, we serve a God of 2nd chances. With His help, we all have the ability to hit the "reset" button on our relationships. Join us for Relationship Reset as we learn to apply God’s word to all of our relationships so that we can live the life that God desires for us. Regardless of your season of life…this series is for you. Whether you’re married, with grandkids, divorced, single, or just playing the waiting game, God’s word applies to you. If your marriage is strong, it can be stronger, if it’s weak, this series can help strengthen it. If you’re single, divorced, or wanting to be married one day, this series will help prepare you for that future relationship. If you want to be the person someone will want to marry one day, or you want to be the person your spouse will want to stay married to, this series is for you.
Jesus: friend to prostitutes, tax-collectors, liars, thieves, and sinners.
Jesus chose to hang around people that didn’t smell good, look good, or act the way they were "supposed to" during that time. And people thought he was crazy. Does the One that that hung out with those people, our Lord and Savior, command us to do the very same thing? Does that really apply to me in 2019 - befriending prostitutes, tax-collectors, liars, thieves, and sinners?
Odds are, if you’ve ever picked up a Bible you’ve seen the words "Holy Spirit" or "Holy Ghost" mentioned. In fact, the Spirit of God is mentioned over 800 times in scripture. In the New Testament, right before He leaves the disciples, Jesus gives them something very special…He gave them the gift of His Spirit. With this gift they got to do incredible things for God! For those who are disciples of Christ, the Bible promises that we have the same Holy Spirit living in us, and that He will never, ever leave us, nor forsake us.
One year ago we began a journey by asking God, “What would You have us do for You, Lord?” We feel confident that our Faithful Father has given us this identity statement: To embrace those who have given up on “church” so they can discover Jesus. Simply put, to love and accept those who have been hurt by "the church", so that they can enter into a personal relationship with Jesus.
We’re very excited to honor every educator (teacher, school administrator, bus driver, cafeteria manager, crossing guard and many, many others) that have been DIFFERENCE MAKERS in the lives of so many! Students - don’t worry, we are celebrating you as well!
We began a journey 12 months ago to discover our unique vision as a church, and now we feel that God has given us that vision. We are incredibly excited to begin to lay out God’s vision for us, but first we must answer “the Why?” Why are we on this journey? Why must we make changes? Why can’t we just keep things the way they have always been?
You really can’t grasp the fullness of a true reclamation story without it; Before is someone who is lost, weak, and intimidated by life. After, the same person is now driven, determined, and completely fearless! In this series we look at some epic Before and After transformations from scripture and learn to apply them.
