God says He's making all things new. This is how He always works. It's what He started through the resurrection of Jesus, and it's what we look forward to Him completing, for us and all of creation around us.Read More / Listen
On the day of his resurrection, Jesus breathed on his followers, giving them the Holy Spirit and commissioning them as his agents of forgiveness in the world. In doing so, he repeated God's initial act of breathing life into a lump of dust to make the first humans—yes, in doing so, Jesus kicked off the new creation. Our Creator is now re-creating the entirety of creation. He's brought forgiveness, and now He's bringing new life, restoring us and forming us into the highest pinnacle of his intention for humanity. Easter is good news indeed!Read More / Listen
Ruth is such a great real life example of relentless grace that she can help us understand Jesus better. Jesus Himself is the embodiment of God's relentless grace in the world.

Ruth, the Moabite, relentlessly loved Naomi. She refused to let her go. And then she challenged Boaz to step up into the same relentless grace, twice. Her assertiveness made Boaz a better man. And it turned Naomi's whole life around. Maybe it shouldn't surprise us we have a book of the Bible named after her.Read More / Listen

We need stories to make sense out of the world. All of us need a story that speaks to our true experiences, that will catapult us out of our isolated selves and somehow give meaning to our lives. We all need a story to cling to – to give us some sense of meaning and purpose and hope. We’re built like this because all good stories are only a partial reflection of a greater Story.
Check out our latest sermon to discover how we know and experience this greatest Story of them all.
