4.28.2024 - Meaning

4/28/2024
One way God helps us through our mental health challenges is by giving our lives a sense of meaning and purpose, which are not only essential to good mental health, but also to persevering through hard times.

4.21.2024 - Embodied

4/21/2024
Conversations about mental health can easily veer into extremes. One extreme, sometimes heard in Christian circles, is that mental health is exclusively a spiritual issue. Another extreme, often in response to the first, is that mental health is exclusively a biological or medical issue. This week we’ll attempt to navigate between these two extremes by considering what it means to be embodied souls.

4.14.2024 - Between

4/14/2024
If the saying, “Unclarified expectations are premeditated disappointments,” is true, then it is vitally important to clarify our expectations of what it means to be followers of Jesus who experience all sorts of challenges, including mental health challenges, on our journey through life.

4.7.2024 - Okay

4/8/2024
Join us for the first message in our new series on mental health. In this series, Wade will push back against the myth that being a Christian protects us from or provides an instant cure for mental health problems. He’ll focus, instead, on ways our Christian faith supports us when we experience mental health challenges.

3.31.2024 - Back to the Start

4/2/2024
The Gospel of Mark ends with a surprise. No, not the resurrection of Jesus, but rather the way the women at the empty tomb respond to it.

3.24.2024 - The Kings Ransom

3/25/2024
Ancient kings typically established their kingdoms by defeating their enemies, not by letting their enemies defeat them. What kind of king is Jesus? And what difference does it make in our lives?

3.17.2024 - An Old Story, Retold

3/17/2024
As one of my favorite writers likes to say, “When Jesus wanted to explain the meaning of his death, he didn't give his disciples a theory. He gave them a meal.” Likewise, whenever we eat this meal, we retell an old story given new meaning by Jesus’s life, death, and resurrection.

3.3.2024 - Listen to Him

3/3/2024
Jesus calls his disciples to embrace a paradoxical philosophy of life and death that initially seems like nonsense. But once we begin to listen to Jesus and put his teachings into practice, we discover he is actually the wisest person who ever lived.

2.25.2024 - The Head at the Table

2/25/2024
Almost every scene in the Gospel of Mark focuses on Jesus. One exception is the story of John the Baptist's death in Mark 6. This week we’ll explore how this story serves as a warning to Mark’s original readers and to us.

The Heart of Darkness

2/18/2024
Mark 5 includes a detailed story about a man tormented by unclean spirits. His encounter with Jesus reveals both the work evil aims to do in the world and Jesus’s power to overcome it. The challenge when reading this story today is to correctly locate ourselves within it.

2.4.2024 - Keep Digging

2/4/2024
Mark includes very little of Jesus’s actual teaching in his gospel. The teachings he does include usually generate more questions than answers, which seems to be Jesus’s intention. Sometimes clarify is overrated.

1.28.2024 - A Crack In Everything

1/29/2024
In Mark 3 Jesus goes up on a mountain and calls twelve disciples to him for a special purpose. The list of names of those he called is pregnant with gospel and helps us understand what the “ideal” church might look like.

1.21.2024 - A Day In the Life

1/21/2024
Early in his ministry Jesus enjoys tremendous success. As his popularity grows, so does the danger of having his ministry hijacked by others. This Sunday we’ll explore a sequence from Mark 1 in which Jesus shows us how to stay focused and on mission when others are tempting us with a competing agenda.

1.14.2024 - Where The Wild Things Are

1/14/2024
The Gospel of Mark tells us that immediately after his baptism, Jesus is sent into the wilderness to be tested by Satan. The sequence of these events not only gives us a clue about Jesus’s mission as the Son of God, it also shapes our expectations for what it means to be a Christ-follower.

1.7.2023 - Mark, A Journey With Jesus - Step Into the Water

1/7/2024
Over the next several months we’ll be working through some of the key events in Jesus’s ministry as depicted in the Gospel of Mark. The first thing we see Jesus do in Mark’s gospel is show up at the Jordan River to be baptized by John. Why did Jesus step into the water? How does his baptism shape the way we view ours?
