O Sapientia | O Adonai
From Series: “Advent: O Antiphons“
From perhaps earlier than even the 6th century, these phrases and praises have been part of God’s family, part of our liturgical tradition since the very early Church. Derived from messianic prophecy found in Isaiah, it is a way of looking at particular titles for Christ Jesus leading up to Christmas. Join us as we connect to the ancient and commemorate the coming of Emmanuel.

The Goldilocks Ratio / 1 Tim 1
From Series: “1 Timothy: Running as God Intended“
Sometimes a church needs to download and reinstall it’s basic OS… removing church malware, establishing needed “firewalls” for protection, organizing its essential doctrine “files” and restarting needed applications (ministries). Paul instructs Timothy (and us) about how to reboot!

Hannah’s Story – 1:1-28
From Series: “1 Samuel: Rise of Kings“
God has been working in and through people throughout history, revealing himself through unfolding promises and foreshadowing that point to ultimate fulfillment and victory in Jesus Christ, the one true king. One of the most epic periods in scripture is the rise of the Kings of Israel, beginning in the book of 1 Samuel. Wars, prophecy, backstabbing and giants abound. We see the transition of God’s people from a time of overseeing “judges” to the first king, Saul and his tenure in the first half of the book. In this text we see some of the greatest stories of faithfulness, betrayal, pride before a fall, and countless other biblical examples that have been mimicked and echoed throughout time in both great works of fiction and human history. We’ll also see how all of this is God’s way of revealing his ultimate plan for salvation.

Mark 1 – Prophecy, Baptism and Trinity
From Series: “Mark, Immediately“

Look at this guy…
From Series: “Suffering of Job“
Job begins and ends with prose, but hosts a wealth of poetry in between. This 3-week study looks at what happened to Job, and how God shows up at the end, and what counsel friends offered in the midst of suffering. Like Job and his friends, we have a lot to learn about God and our assumptions.

Too Many Wives
From Series: “TOO MUCH!“
Whether it’s chasing men, women, having children, material possessions, we can easily get our minds set on earthly things and become hoarders – even good things can be glutted on and stewarded poorly. We see people in Genesis doing this in ways that still provide lessons for today.

Tim Schaaf – July 13, 2014
From Series: “Genesis: BLESSED!“
Betrothal and death, deals and dreams… the Book of Genesis chronicles all sorts of activity in the life of his growing, chosen people – and not all of it looks like what we typically consider blessing. What does it TRULY mean to be blessed?

Hope: Beyond our Power, Bigger than our Strategy
From Series: “GENESIS: New Hope“
God has created the world, dealt with rebellion and sin by starting over with Noah, and establishes a new people and promise with a man named Abram. As he leads and loves the man who will become Abraham, we see God bringing New Hope to a fallen world, and see how this hope applies today to our lives and God’s leading in them.

The Call of Abram
From Series: “GENESIS: New Blessings“
God created everything… and now sin has corrupted everything. Where once all things in the land was good, now all things are broken. And so…
One man is chosen to go on a journey…
Chosen by God to forge a family and generational legacy that will, in time, be a blessing to the entire world, this faithful man answers God’s call… but not without stumbling along the way.
Will we answer God’s call and go on the journey he has for us?
Phase 2 of our year-long series in Genesis provides a great jumping-on point for newcomers. Join us as we walk with him and see God’s leading from ancient times to modern application for our lives.
