Getting Comfortable with Being Uncomfortable
Sunday, April 22, 2018
Rev. Dr. Bill Gibson shares a powerful message on what it means to follow Jesus with curious wonder and innovation. Chocolates, play-doh and doubting disciples help us see the truth that following Jesus often means being comfortable with being uncomfortable.
Vision Sunday: 10 in 30
Sunday, April 15, 2018
What if church could look different than we thought possible? What if helping create new expressions of church could be a life changing gift for our many friends who find themselves disillusioned with church as they know it? We're excited to help birth ten expressions of church in the next thirty years. Join us in the miracle of this work!
Resurrection of the Body
Sunday, April 8, 2018
Somewhere along the line, we started to separate our mind and body. We might believe God values our heart and soul more than our body. But what if Jesus' physical resurrection means we also get to explore a resurrection for our own bodies? In this message, we explore our spiritual task of putting all the pieces of ourselves back together.
Singing in the Dark
Sunday, April 1, 2018
We've all got some dark places in our lives. It feels like the end. Difficult relationships, illness, certain seasons of life. What does it take to be people who see a different story at work in the places that look like the end? What if we could sing in the dark? People who follow Jesus learn how to do that. We are people of the resurrection!
What happened on the cross?
Sunday, March 25, 2018
This is for anyone who's ever struggled with an angry, vengeful God who needed to kill a child to be connected to humanity again. What if there are multiple ways to view what happened on the cross? This look at atonement theology is a helpful beginning to Holy Week.
Better Together: Politics
Sunday, March 18, 2018
Ahh, politics. There is an anger in the air that we want to learn. We're tired of ignoring everyone who disagrees with us. Pastor Jenny takes us deep into the heart of Jesus' political life, what's not working in our life together (politikas), an insight from Jesus and a Pharisee, what Theo from YouTube can teach us and where we can go from here.
Better Together: Gender
Sunday March 11, 2018
What does it mean for us to be better together when it comes gender? Our invitation to find common ground invites us into new spaces of deep listening to female, male and transgender voices. This is holy, Jesus-following, kingdom-welcoming, stereotype-breaking work.
Better Together: Generations
Sunday March 4, 2018
What does it mean to live a in fifth or sixth generational world? It's not a competition. Or a race to impress our elders. Can we remember in the race of our lives to listen and build on the growth of the "monuments of our fathers?"
Better Together: Race
Sunday, February 25, 2018
Where does the color of our skin keep us separated? We explore where we find ourselves on our own understandings of our racial development. Do we truly know what it's like to move in our community in the color of our skin? We hear a needed perspective and process the work each of us have before us. Solid next steps lead us forward.
Better Together: Marysville
Sunday, February 18, 2018
What if we really are better together? We take a deeper look at who lives in Marysville, what they love, what they would change and we listen for where God might be calling us. A surprising experiment informs our work.
Heaven is Not in the Sky
Sunday January 28, 2018
Pastor Dave Beckett, our own Pastor Jenny's father gives us the message of hope and love today. Many are often taught hell is below and heaven is above. What if heaven is not the end goal, but the place where we are One with God here today? What will it take for you to be able to see the Heaven in unison with God here in our own lives?
Watch a recent worship gathering on your schedule. Enjoy!
