It's Sunday morning and I'm on my way to church. What should I expect? What is expected of me? What should my mind be focused on? What are my thoughts about myself, my church family, and God. In As We Gather, Discipleship Pastor Jesse Hicks answers those questions and discovers what it means to be intentional every time we come together for worship.

Humans are often self-centered. Certainly some are more so than others. Even people that do a lot for others, inevitably fall victim to thoughts about how they are concerned for their own priorities. The opening words of Pastor Rick Warren’s best-selling book, The Purpose Driven Life, are explicitly meant to get people away from that thinking: “It’s not about you.” The book clearly sets the tone, at the outset, that Christians and prospective Christians need to be focused on living their life the way God commanded his followers to so that they may be a part of his Kingdom of Heaven for eternity.

What does it look like to follow Jesus? People ask that a lot. And the answer is, it’s different for everyone. But those who accept the invitation begin the journey of their lives and over time, usually at a slow pace, God does incredible things in their relationships, in their finances, in their families, in their careers, etc. Join us October 8 for this stand-alone message about what it looks like to follow Jesus.

All religions point to three things: you ought to. . . you don't. . . you're toast. Religion is all about following the rules, but Jesus had something different in mind. He is more interested in us following Him than following the rules. In fact, He makes a pretty bold promise for those who choose relationship over rules. In this message, we will discover how to be spiritually free.

It’s a plot Hollywood dreams of. A wicked queen who thinks she has exterminated all the royal princes who would take her throne. But unbeknownst to her, an heir has been hidden. When the timing is right, at the tender age of seven he takes the throne, defeats the evil queen, and leads his people back to peace and prosperity. Such is the story of Joash, and this Sunday we will look at something special he did to repair the Temple and bring it back to the beauty it once had. We will discover the reasons why it is important for us to make the campus where God’s people worship a place of magnificence and splendor, as well as practical and convenient.
