Christmas is a time of gift-giving and receiving. It is a time of joy, hope, peace, and love. It is also a time of tension, busyness, worry, and annoyance. In the midst of all the to-do’s of Christmas, it is easy to neglect the reality that it is about God’s greatest gift to us. In the Unto Us series, find out how to have gratitude in the middle of the chaos of Christmas.
Face to Face
How we view God affects every single area of our lives. It shapes how we feel about Him, how we talk about Him and even how we talk to Him. But God is divine and we’re only human, so how do we discover who He is, how He acts and what He’s like? The best way to get to know God is by looking at the One He sent—Jesus. Through this series we discover that when ordinary people have extraordinary face-to-face encounters with Jesus, their lives are forever transformed.
Church is so much more than a group of people that get together once a week to sing songs to God. Church is a family—a redeemed people—sent into the world to invite the world into the kingdom. In this series, find out that, in the same way the Father sent Jesus, Jesus sends you into the world so that others will know Him.
Get Your Hopes Up
Too often, too many people are too quick to tell you, “That sounds nice but, don’t get your hopes up.” However, those who trust Jesus have plenty of reasons for hope. In this series, we look at the many ways a relationship with God through Jesus leads to living lives full of positive expectations. Because its true: If you have Christ, you have every reason to get your hopes up!
When you place your faith in anything, you make that thing the foundation for every part of your life. No matter how strong your faith is, it make no difference if the thing in which you place your faith has not substance. In this series through the book of Colossians, we discover that it’s better to have a little faith in something great than a great faith in something worthless.
Family looks a lot different today than it did just thirty years ago. But that does not mean biblical principles no longer apply to the household. In this series, we look at key attitudes behind what makes a “Jesus family” tick. Family 2.0: It’s time for an upgrade.
