  • LifeLines - Friendship

    October 8, 22, November 5, 19

    Do you have any friendships you can really count on — the kind of friendships you might call your “lifelines?” God designed us to have friendships we can trust, but God also knew we’d need some help figuring out how to build friendships that are lifelines for each other. In this 4-week series, we’ll look at the kind of friendship Jesus models for us: friendship that lets us be real, gives us a chance to grow, gives us a group when we feel alone, and can even change the world.

  • Unwrapped - Christmas

    November 17, 24, December 1, 8

    When you think of Christmas, you probably think about an event — an event that is (hopefully) filled with gifts, food, family, and fun. But what happens when that event isn’t as joyful or peaceful as we wish it were? And is the “event” even what Christmas is about anyway? In this 4-week series, we’ll discover what this season is truly about. It’s about getting ready to receive God’s gift of Jesus, sharing that gift with others, rejoicing in the surprising gifts God gives us, and taking time to enjoy God’s presence.

  • aTypical - Family

    January 5, 15, 19, 25

    No family is perfect — not even the ones that seem “normal” on the outside. No one truly has a “normal” family, and that’s okay! Sometimes it’s the most not-normal families that God uses to make the most not-normal difference in the world. In this 4-week series, we’ll look at four imperfect and “atypical” families from Scripture. We’ll discover that not-so-typical families are often used by God because not-so-typical families pray for each other, have tough conversations, and forgive each other.

  • Jesus Is - Jesus

    February 16, 23, March 2, 9

    You’ve probably heard of Jesus. You might even think you know a lot about Him. We all have some idea of who we think Jesus is. We might think of Him as a nice guy, a great teacher, a carpenter, or a guy who could walk on water . . . but who is Jesus really? In this 4-week series, we’ll look at what other people have said about Jesus, along with some key moments in Jesus’ life and ministry and even Jesus’ own words, to help us see that Jesus is God, Savior, truth, and better than a best friend.

  • Worth It - Easter

    April 6, 13

    To some people, the Easter season is all about candy, bunnies, and colorful eggs. Of course, Easter is a time of joy and celebration, but that’s not the whole story — because, before we can celebrate the joy of Jesus’ victory, we have to first remember the pain of Jesus’ suffering. In this series, we’ll look at Jesus’ final days, death, and resurrection, as well as the experiences of the early Church, as we see how the Jesus who suffered suffers with you and the Jesus who lives now lives in you.

  • The HAves and the Have nots - Identity

    April 27, May 4, 11, 18

    How many times have you compared yourself with someone else today? Seriously — see if you can count. Whether it’s their stuff, their looks, their skills, or their popularity, we can’t help but notice all the things other people have, and how those things compare to all the things we wish we had. But in this 4-week series, we’re going to focus on four things that God has given to every single one of us. You have a past, you have today, you have a future,and you have a family. All four of these things make you valuable and uniquely you.
