Jesus began his ministry by calling men and women to follow him and be his disciples. Today, the invitation of Jesus remains the same: to follow him as his students and to embrace his life and teaching in every area of our lives.
This stand-alone message emphasizes that we can trust God’s promise that everyone who believes in Jesus will have eternal life.
This four-week series uses Scripture and popular children’s movies to help kids understand that they have a place in God’s story. By studying the ways God interacts with his people throughout history we learn that God is the main character in this great adventure, but we all have a part to play in his kingdom!
We live in a time and culture that elevates “stars” and athletes as people to imitate, even within the church. When cool, famous, or popular people become Christians and people focus on that, sometimes we start thinking that God shows his love by giving us fancy things or a life without anything hard. But when we look at the lives of Jesus, his disciples, and Christians who refused to renounce their faith—not matter what the cost—we see that faith is more than a trend: it’s a way of life. Jesus’s teachings help us understand what it really means to follow him and make him our King.
As we seek to trust and obey Christ, we will discover that obeying God sometimes means we will experience being made fun of, bullied, or even persecuted because of our faith in Jesus. Using the biblical context of Peter’s message to the displaced and persecuted believers in his first epistle, we will learn how to continue to praise God and follow him faithfully, even when obeying him feels like it’s anything but fun. Following Peter’s advice to early believers, this series encourages us to continue to follow Jesus, even when it’s not the popular or comfortable thing to do, by offering biblical, applicable advice on how to put our faith into action.

This kids series uses four psalms from “the 90s”—Psalms 91, 94, 95, and 99—to meditate on the attributes of God: his protection, justice, kingship, and holiness.
This four-week series for children, grounded in the book of 2 Peter, focuses on holding on to what is true and setting aside what is false. As members of the body of Christ, the church, we must learn how to distinguish false teachers and teachings from those who correctly teach what the Bible says. When we learn what Scripture means, it becomes easier to identify those who are teaching the truth and tell them apart from those who are misusing the Bible. When we do this, we can grow in the grace of God and Christian virtue.
This four-week series examines the biblical understanding of generosity. By looking at the character of God, the good Samaritan, the widow’s offering, and Paul’s encouragement to give generously, kids will see that God wants them to be generous in all areas of their lives.
This four-week series will look at different characters in the Christmas story to see how the birth of Jesus was good news of great joy for all of them, whether an elderly couple like Zechariah and Elizabeth, a poor young couple like Joseph and Mary, the marginalized shepherds, or even cosmic beings (angels).
This one-week, end-of-the-year series leads us to reflect on all that God has done over the last twelve months. We will remember God’s work in our community, as well as how we have responded to him in baptism, discipleship, and more.
