Too Good To Be True – S1E4 (Col 2.6-2.15)
Eternity is a reality that doesn't start at some distant time in the future, but one that began with the inception of creation and for each of us when we were born ... we're already in eternity.  And that eternity - my eternity - pivots directly on how I believe about one central idea: who is Jesus?
 
Frankie Valli once famously penned these iconic words: “You’re too good to be true - I can't take my eyes off you ... at long last love has arrived, and I thank God I'm alive.” These words capture that distinct wonder of encountering something SO good that it seems unbelievable, and yet which draws us inexplicably toward it. As we dig into Season One of our Too Good To Be True series, we will discover a reality that is bigger and better than anything we could have hoped to imagine, and is more true than anything else we could ever discover.

    Light of the World – Week 6
    If we look around us, this world can seem pretty dark. The answer is to find light in the darkness ... Jesus is the light that overcomes the dark, and that’s what makes Christmas the most wonderful time of the year. It’s not  because of what’s happening but because of what happened, not because of who is with us but because of who is for us.
     
    This morning, we look ahead to the final result of what it means to walk in the Light that came to this world 2000 years ago - and it is this simple truth:  once I've encountered Jesus in a real and authentic way, cannot stay the same as I was before.

    If we look around us, this world can seem pretty dark. The answer is to find light in the darkness ... Jesus is the light that overcomes the dark, and that’s what makes Christmas the most wonderful time of the year. It’s not  because of what’s happening but because of what happened, not because of who is with us but because of who is for us.
     
    This morning, we discuss that walking in the light of Jesus produces a faithfulness in us that is truly epic, but that it requires us to engage in life in a particular way.

    Sometimes It Takes a Party – Week 2
    Sometimes, it takes a party to change how we see those around us and to change how we present the most important truth of all - that Jesus loves, that we love, and that there is hope in this crazy world. 
     
    Today, Pastor Brad helps to further define the kind of party (and kind of partyers) that God desires.  We look at the goodness of God, and how that goodness should motivate us both to party well and to help others party, too.

    It’s Just a Phase – Week 3
    Every stage of life brings its own unique share of adventure, joy, questions, and challenges ... and no two stages are alike! This month, we're looking at a variety of life stages - different PHASES of life - from God’s own perspective. 
     
    Today, Pastor Brad discusses the broad, complex, and inherently GOOD phase of ADULTHOOD.

    Loving ELANCO – Week 2
    Perhaps the best known passage in all of Scripture comes from the book of John: For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. During our Loving ELANCO series, we’ll learn how we can love the world that Jesus came to save and step out in tangible ways to impact our community.
     
    In today's message, we dig deeper into what it means to love ELANCO, focusing on defining WHAT love really is, WHY we are supposed to love others, and HOW that love manifests in the world around us.  We conclude with a push to engage in our unique community impact initiative this coming Sunday.

    Summer Playlist – Sorrow & Joy
    SUMMER IS HERE, AND IT HAS A PLAYLIST. We’re taking a few weeks this summer to discover some of the playlists we find in the Bible ... songs that we have been given to help guide us, to inspire us, to console us, and many other things. You see, the book of Psalms in the Bible is really a divine collection of music and poetry that can form the most powerful playlists we’ve ever encountered. It’s time to listen to the music.
    On today's playlist, we discover the music of sorrow and joy - and the essential piece to moving from a place of despair into the life and freedom we were designed to have.  Listen as we discover how to bridge that seemingly impossible divide.
