  • FRESH AIR

    Summer in Minnesota is a great time to air out the house. New homes are built to be air tight and, although they’re efficient, the air inside gets stale. Our lives, our relationships and our faith can feel the same way. We live in controlled, comfortable and efficient environments that may prevent us from experiencing the fresh air we need to thrive. God challenges us to crack open our tightly controlled lives and faith to let the Spirit in.

    June 9 – Crack Open the Church (Pentecost Sunday)

    June 16 – Crack Open Your Relationships                      

    June 23 – Crack Open Your Purpose                                  

  • The SOund we make

    From the first sound of a parent’s voice to a newborn, to the sounds we make on social media and in late night conversations with close friends, our voice has an impact.  Our voice can be calming, encouraging, alarming, shaming or pleasantly memorable.  The tone of our voice is shaped by those we listen to.  In this series, we listen carefully to Jesus and how we can develop our own voice in a way that is consistent with the values we embrace.

  • LET THERE BE LIGHT

    Jesus said that those who follow him are the light of the world (Matthew 5:14). God’s love and grace, experienced through Jesus, is the source of that light. So, how can we allow God’s light to shine in the darkness we experience today — in our families, in the world and in ourselves? Come together in the weeks leading up to Easter and learn how we can let the light shine. Let there be light!

  • IDENTITY

    Jesus begins a movement that unifies people around a common identity. We celebrate what makes us unique, while we also affirm that what brings life is an identity rooted in: principles, commitments and a proper perception of ourselves and others. We’ll explore how our identity holds up under pressure and reflect on the true identity of Jesus. In claiming our deepest identity in Christ, we find the life we long for and the impact we hope to make.

    February 10 – Commitments

    February 17 – Perceptions

  • UNDERCURRENTS

    As we move through winter, the mystery and beauty of the Christmas story still fresh, we reflect on the undercurrents of our faith. They are concerns, yearnings, and imaginings that point to something deeper:  Longing for Justice, Thirst for Spirituality, Hunger for Relationship and Beauty in Creation. They point to the presence and work of God. If you’re seeking to better understand why you are drawn to faith and yet remain restless at moments, join us.


    January 6 Longing for Justice

    January 13 Thirst for Spirituality

    January 20 Hunger for Relationship

    January 27 Beauty in Creation

     

  • AWAKEN

    Faith is a series of awakenings. It’s not a single moment. It unfolds as we live through new experiences and situations.  It requires time for reflection on our past, present and future… on those who’ve come before us, our capacity, what’s truly important and where God is leading us. It invites us to look to both unseen spiritual realities as well as the very tangible and present needs before us. Faith in Christ draws us to this intersection where personal and communal transformation is not only possible, but experienced in Christ.

  • HALF TRUTHS

    Have you ever heard Christians say things that don't sound quite right? Sometimes we repeat phrases that have the ring of truth, but upon further examination aren't helpful. During this series we explore some of those phrases that might be best dropped.

  • BECAUSE OF YOU

    We are the Church. The Church is not a building or an institution. It's a movement of people centered on the life, teachings, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. We believe that we are called to something bigger than ourselves and beyond ourselves. And yet, that mission begins here. Because of you, this mission handed off to us 2000 some years ago continues on. Jesus Christ is the light of the world that offers love, hope and transformational grace for all who will receive it.

    Sept. 16 - We are a Movement

    Sept. 23 - We are Devoted to the Highest Purpose
