New Normal // Pick Up Your Cross?

Lead Pastor Carl Gulley carried on our New Normal series, highlighting the new normal the followers of Jesus faced in the book of Acts. Similar to the early Church, we are facing new normals and new challenges. How can we show Jesus to the world around us? May the same thing said of Peter and John in Acts 4 be said of us, that people would recognize us as those who have been with Jesus.

New Normal // The Power of Healing

Senior Pastor Jimmy Seibert honored dads and continued our New Normal series. Just as the early Church had an opportunity to create a new culture of reaching out and sharing the grace of Jesus, we are entering a new normal and have the same opportunity. When we believe and pray for healing, it releases grace and creates an environment for God to work.

New Normal // Promise, Preparation and Power

Senior Pastor Jimmy Seibert continued our series, New Normal, diving into the book of Acts. The first two chapters call us to remember Jesus’ suffering, remember the miracles and remember His teachings, just as the early Church did. From this place, there is promise, preparation and power released upon all peoples. Each part is necessary, and we are in a season of preparation. God is inviting us into the next level, if we partner with Him as we prepare our hearts in response to the promise to see His power come.

New Normal // A Call for Good Samaritans

Senior Pastor Jimmy Seibert jump-started our new series, New Normal, by looking at the parable of the Good Samaritan. If we are going to join in finding healing for our nation in regards to race, we have to first walk in humility – defensiveness does not get us to righteousness. As believers, we must educate ourselves on the history of race, choose to relate to others who are different from us and advocate for those who have been unjustly marginalized.

Better Together // Family

Senior Pastor Jimmy Seibert wrapped up our Better Together series, sharing the importance of cultivating the right soil in our lives. Even if we plant seeds, if we don’t have good soil nothing will grow. How can we cultivate this? By intentionally living around the Word and will of God, being spirit-filled grateful people and mutually submitting to one another and finding God’s grace sufficient.

Better Together // Living Stones

We continued our Better Together series, with Senior Pastor Jimmy Seibert looking at the life of Peter and how all of us are made to be better together to glorify Jesus. He is the cornerstone and we are called to be living stones. It doesn’t stop with our personal relationship with Jesus — it is us, as a community, reaching out to those around us.

Easter Sunday // Peter – A Man Like Me

He is risen, He is risen indeed! Our Senior Pastor Jimmy Seibert led us in remembering and celebrating the power of Resurrection Sunday by looking at the journey of Peter, one of Jesus’ disciples. Even in the midst of Peter’s greatest failures, Jesus invited him to draw close. Jesus became THE sacrifice in order for Peter, and the world, to be restored. We are just like Peter, and we have that same access to a relationship with God through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus.

Anchored In // Anchored in through Prayer

Senior Pastor Jimmy Seibert continued our Anchored In series, honing in on 2 Chronicles 7:11-14. No matter the trial or what form it comes in, we know through this passage that our response is to humble ourselves, pray and seek God’s face and repent, knowing that in turn, He promises to hear us, forgive our sins and heal our land. The time is now to posture ourselves humbly before God as He draws near to us.

Anchored In // Anchored in the Storm

Senior Pastor Jimmy Seibert continued our Anchored In series. The reality is that this pandemic will eventually pass, but the question to answer is, “What will be said of us of how we lived in the in-between?” Even with everything going on around us today, this is not the time to sit back. Through faith in God and patience, we believe it is time to inherit the promises and move forward as a church.

Anchored In // Anchored in the Hand of God

Senior Pastor Jimmy Seibert kick-started our new series, Anchored In. Even in all of the chaos of this time, we believe that this is still the year of the open hand: one reaching up to heaven as we grow in our relationship with God and the other hand reaching out to others in compassion and outreach. God has called us to make Him our fixed point, to love Him with all of our hearts, love our neighbors as ourselves and love those in need.
