Sabbath Rest Is For Everyone (Jonathan Adamczewski)
From the very beginning, the Bible teaches that Sabbath is for everyone: a good and holy day, to celebrate rest from work together — and together we can work to pursue lives marked by God-honoring Sabbath rest. In this message, we welcome Jonathan Adamczewski as he teaches on this timely and timeless topic.
Key To A Blessed Life (Arman Davtyan)
In this message, Arman Davtyan (Lead Pastor - Unique Life Church) unpacks how the first Psalm gives us the key to a blessed life. We live in a world with complexity, conflicting advice, diverse ways of living, and complicated ideas about life and death. But in reality, we have to choose between two simple options: Will we listen to the Word of God or will we listen to the voice of Man?
Lost & Found (Jon Ritner)
People care about lost things but never as much as God cares about lost people. In this message, Jon Ritner invites us to look at Jesus’ three parables of lost things in Luke chapter 15 and watch how Jesus will use a pattern and a progression to deliver a powerful lesson about grace for those who are lost. Jesus invites the lost ones home and also enlists us to join him in his mission to seek and save others who are lost as well.
Weather Patterns (TD Davis)
What’s with the weather lately? From heat waves, to hurricanes, and other extreme weather occurrences, ongoing patterns of these events can often predict a larger problem and eventually mobilize people to collective action. In Matthew 16, Jesus uses a similar weather pattern metaphor that relates to the interpretation of the signs of His day, in light of those still reluctant to follow Him. In this message, T.D. Davis (Co-Lead Pastor) shows us how Jesus’ same concern can prophetically relate to a modern church awaiting to be mobilized.
Practicing Presence (Kalli Davis)
We have access to the very presence of God and yet we ourselves are often not present with Him. Our minds easily become consumed with the 'what if's' of the future orare overwhelmed by the shame of the past. But what if God is calling us to simply live in the present? Asking us to learn the unforced rhythms of grace and to be content in all circumstances. Through this message Pastor Kalli discusses how we, as children of God, can be content in all circumstances. We can rest satisfied and free.
Exam Results (TD Davis)
Jesus’ declaration of “I never knew you” in Matthew 7 can evoke a sense of insecurity around our faith and "right standing" with God if not examined with careful thought and reflection. Followers of Jesus should always stand firm on the promises of God and the assurance of His work on the cross but also wrestle with the reality that Jesus uses specific language that “many” will think they are His followers to only find out they are in fact, just "secret admirers". In this message, we conclude our series “Either/Or” by giving space for our own personal examination of faith up against Jesus’ priority of intimate and authentic relationship — to know and be known by Him.
Energy Supply (T.D. Davis)
Where does our energy come from? In Acts 1, the resurrected Jesus sends His Church on an ambitious mission to impact the world that (from a human perspective) sounds exhausting due to the realistic energy required. As a “so called” secret admirer of Jesus, expending energy that fuels praise and adoration eventually expires because all healthy relationship is energized by reciprocal authenticity and intimacy. In this message, we explore the role the Holy Spirit plays in energizing our faith not only "in us", but "upon us” to impact a world in which God loves.
Don't Get Churchy! (TD Davis)
Like any complex tension in life, having an authentic relationship with Jesus and engaging in religious practices can so easily become imbalanced. The religious elites within the Sanhedrin during Jesus’ ministry represented the epitome of such an imbalance that we could assume was originally born out of a noble cause to live obedient to God. In this message, we explore Matthew 23 and Jesus’ seven “woes” and rebukes which can so easily translate to the current temptation and exhaustion for us to become “churchy” people rather than Jesus people.
So Much More (Kalli Davis)
In this message Pastor Kalli Davis discusses Luke 14 as Jesus calls those who are curious to count the cost of being his disciple. Jesus acknowledges that in order to follow Him it will require great love and great commitment. Essentially, Jesus was not concerned about the size of the crowd but about the depth of their commitment. Were they willing to love Him so much more than all others? Was their commitment deep enough that they would forfeit their inheritance, relationships, and all other identities that may be required? However, while the cost was great Jesus was offering a commitment that was secure, an anchor for our souls. A commitment filled with eternal peace.
The "Knowledge Guy" (T.D. Davis)
Environments that further and elevate knowledge have become such a normal part of our everyday culture, especially within Christian tradition. But when it comes to faith, you can technically hold knowledge alongside the absence of spiritual intimacy. You can, in a sense, know about God without ever really knowing God. In this message, we examine this "knowledge without intimacy" tendency in regards to two contrasting characters, and Jesus’ confrontational response.
