We learn by doing. The first disciples knew this. Tremendous growth happened in their lives when they witnessed to what they had experienced with Jesus. The same is true today: we grow when we answer Jesus' call to go and make disciples. There are things we only learn when we are actively engaged in God's mission. As we explore the lives of people like Stephen, Philip, and Peter, may we commit to go and experience all the amazing ways God wants us to grow.
Peter Part 1
Peter Part 2
Imagine following Jesus around for three years, seeing Him do incredible miracles and change people's lives, and yet you desert Him when He is arrested. Imagine watching Jesus die an excruciating death, and then unbelievably He shows up in your house three days later fully alive. Imagine having Jesus back with you alive, but then He gives you an outlandish mission to make disciples of all nations and then He takes off. What would you do next? How do you process all that and be obedient to what Jesus asked you to do? The book of Acts in the Bible explores these questions and tells the exciting tale of the early disciples as they step out in faith on an unexpected journey of faith.
Jesus is still fully alive, changing lives every day, and continues to lead us on unexpected journeys of faith. As we begin the next chapter in our story as a church, let us go back to how it all started to be renewed in our calling to faithfully follow Jesus on the journey of faith He has for us

DYING TO LIVE: We all long for life. Real life. Life that matters. But we're not always sure how to get it.Jesus offers the path to true life: death.
Jesus says that to really experience life to the fullest we have to first die to ourselves: our selfishness, laziness, fear, indifference, etc.
DANIEL: The Old Testament character Daniel lived in a land of temptations and amongst people who did not know his God. He experienced pressure to compromise, temptation to give into fear, and enticement to live only for himself. We live in a world not so different than Daniel's. In this five-week sermon series, we will learn from Daniel how to live uncompromising lives of love and integrity so that we might be shining lights in the world God loves.
