As human beings, we live in a constant tension: we are created with dignity as beautiful creatures, yet we are severally broken. Why are we both beautiful and broken?

Genesis 3 tells us why...and why the world is not the way it's supposed to be. In this sermon, Pastor John talks about the fall of humanity into sin and how that affects relationships, identity and sexuality.

When we talk about identity, relationships and sexuality, we are asking bigger questions about where we come from, what it means to be human, and how we flourish in this world. In the first sermon in the Origins series, Pastor John talks about the origins story that starts off with "...in the beginning..." and how it shapes how we view ourselves.

When we think about sharing our faith, we often talk about how, rather than why and what. Pastor Chad opens 1 Peter and shows why we share and what we share, remembering that He has brought us out of darkness and into His light so we could be His people.

In our last sermon in the Normal Christian series, you'll hear why Jesus is not like Mr Rogers, and about one person in our own church whose life has been completely transformed by Jesus.

When you throw a party in someone’s honor, who is it for? The celebrators, or the one who is celebrated.? How you answer that question shapes how you throw the party. The same is true as we talk about worshiping God in a Sunday service.

As Pastor John preaches on the practice of worship, you’ll hear about worship trends in American churches, the place of emotions in worship, and Sam the Eagle.

The Praying Believer

Do you struggle with prayer? You're not alone. Although every believer is called to pray, every believer struggles with prayer. Guest speaker, Pastor Juan Gallo, opens up Hebrews 4 to encourage us in the practice of prayer.

Life is not easy as a disciple of Jesus. Amidst the trials and challenges, how do you stay strong? How do you stay refreshed?

Pastor John continues our "Normal Christian” series by talking about ongoing personal renewal as we are strengthened by the grace that is in Christ Jesus.

In this sermon, we explore the phrase “if you see something, say something”, how most Christians live with a small cross, and how one woman's body gave way to cancer while her spirit was renewed daily.

Sabbath | Rhythm of Rest

Do you feel like life is an impossible task with no rest? Our God is a God who works, then ceases working. As people made in his image, we become more fully human when we work and rest. But the weekly Sabbath rest points to a spiritual rest that Jesus invites us into when he says, "“Come to me, all of you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest."

In our first sermon in the Normal Christian series, you'll hear about an impossible job with no rest, why a lack of physical rest often has a spiritual dimension, and how Christ provides us rest.

Faith, Flaws & Fathers

Fatherhood is a great joy. But it also brings out some of our deepest flaws as men. What do we do with our flaws? Cover them up? Numb down men's masculinity?

In Sunday's sermon, you'll learn why flaws aren't fatal when you let faith into your flaws. You'll hear about flawed men from the Old Testament who are commended for their faith. And how leaning into your heavenly Father in faith can deeply change your flaws.

As Christians, we are called to advance with the Good News of Jesus. But this mission can be intimidating. How do we move forward with boldness? When Jesus told the disciples about their mission, he also taught them about the Holy Spirit.

On Pentecost Sunday, Pastor John looks at the teaching of Jesus on the Holy Spirit. You'll hear about the Invasion of Normandy on D-Day, misunderstandings of the Holy Spirit, and how he wants to lead us out of endless self-absorption.
