The Image of Security (Pastor TD Davis)
What makes us spiritually secure? In the parable of "The Wise and Foolish Builders" we are introduced to a word picture of two houses with drastically different outcomes. In this message, T.D. Davis (Co-Lead Pastor) connects these final words of Jesus' "Sermon on the Mount" as an image of security where Jesus' gracious rule and reign helps prevent potential disaster in this life and the life to come.
Roots Before Fruits (Pastor Matthew Schibler)
If we are willing to put all of this work into taking care of the plants that adorn our homes, why would we not want to put that same effort, if not more, into taking care of the plant that is your life? As we continue our sermon series, Matthew Schibler (Young Adults Pastor) unpacks, through the Parable of the Sower, this idea of building and cultivating a root system in our lives. We all have a desire to leave a legacy & make an impact on the world, but we cannot have fruit without roots. Similarly to a plant, we need a foundation, a root system, to anchor us and help support the vision and calling God has placed on our lives.
A New Disciple (Pastor Kalli Davis)
Often, through parables, Jesus paints a beautiful picture for His followers of what life in His kingdom is to look like. In continuation of our series, "Images of the Unimaginable," Kalli Davis (Co-Lead Pastor) unpacks, through the Parable of New Wineskins, this new way which requires a new disciple. This new disciple of Jesus looked very different from that of the disciples of the Pharisees. We, as Jesus followers, are encouraged to not mix old and new wine but to fully embrace the good news of the new and better way through Jesus.
Image of Compassion (Anndrea Garza)
In this message, we delve into how parables allow for us to further understand the heart of God and what that practically looks like for our lives. Anndrea continues this sermon series with the idea that "compassion is love in motion", as seen in the Parable of the Good Samaritan.
The Heart Of God (Pastor TD Davis)
We often define life through what many have called a "tournament of narratives". These "grand metaphors" help us relate to the story of life, but what if Jesus' vision goes beyond our human conception? In this message, TD Davis (Co-Lead Pastor) kicks off a new message series titled, "Images Of The Unimaginable" with the big idea that Jesus is the ultimate unimaginable metaphor of God's heart, using parables to confront our small-scale imaginations about human life and His kingdom.
More Than Sheep (Pastor TD Davis)
The metaphor "sheep" is often used to describe human beings in the Biblical narrative. This identity unfortunately includes the nature of being ignorant, wandering, lost, and in need of a guiding shepherd. In this message, Pastor T.D. challenges us with the idea that although our personal identity as "sheep" is in fact Biblical, it is incomplete in regards to the fullness of identity that Jesus illustrates for us as His people throughout the backdrop of the New Testament.
WIGTake: In A Covid-19 World (Pastor TD Davis)
"What's it gonna take?" has been a question framed in a variety of different ways in relationship to COVID-19 and our world today. In reference to the church, we must ask the question of WIGTake in reference to Jesus' vision as we move into the continued unknowns ahead. In this message, Pastor TD frames the priorities we must rediscover as we look into the future of what it means to be "the church" in a COVID-19 world.
Heart Exam (Pastor Kalli Davis)
In this message, Pastor Kalli talks about how those who don't examine themselves deceive themselves. In the same way that Jacob had to release one son in order to revive another in his life, we must also trust God enough to release things in our own lives, that we too may also be revived.
