"from that to this"
It’s been said that God is not about religion but relationship. There’s some element to which this is true. But what does being religious really mean? In Mathew 9, we’ll take a look at what Jesus really thinks about religion.

ephesians 5 & 6
In the world of Ancient Greece, Aristotle believed that the household was a microcosm of the empire at large. From this point of reference Paul writes to the Ephesians in a most scandalous way. He poses that if the kingdom of God invades a household, it can have a large exponential difference through genealogy and by working its way out to the community. In Ephesians 5 and 5 we see how this is played out.
WEEK 3 - November 19th, 2017
"the war on worry"
We give power to all kinds of things around us to determine how we feel about our lives and view our situation and futures. We think we are secure when we have money, control, health, and success. If we’re lacking, however, we become filled with worry. In this passage from the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus reminds us that is only one thing we can seek that will free us from worry.
WEEK 4 - November 26th, 2017
"how to be rich this christmas"
It’s been said that the love of money is the root of all evil. Although a misquote, how we use money does have the potential to wreak havoc on our lives. It also has the potential to unlock opportunities for spreading the gospel. That’s why we need wisdom when it comes to managing our finances. In the book of Proverbs, we learn how to think about and manage the money God has given us.
