You Will Experience Turbulence: Perseverance - Jeff Mickey

Play
Read more
Jesus never promised his followers that life on earth would be easy. In fact, he promised exactly the opposite. The uncertainty and turbulence we are facing right now do not shock or surprise God in any way. In fact, the early church started and thrived in turbulent times. We can, too. Followers of Jesus are called to face uncertainty with courage, perseverance, humility and hope. These are not optional; not add-ons to the Christian life. These traits are the very core of our faith. We need them now more than ever.

Vision Sundays: Everyday is A Mission Trip - Jeff Mickey

Play
Read more
The days ahead of us this fall look nothing like the days of last fall. The world ahead is not like the world behind us. There is loss, fear, uncertainty, anxiety and grief. Our plans change. But we need not panic. God has not abandoned us. God is with us. Moving forward, we can learn from the early church leaders who were scattered by persecution and suffering. In them - we find vision that can help us let go of the past and embrace new challenges as we learn to adapt and thrive in the life Jesus promises those who will follow him.

Extraordinary: A Time Such As This - Jeff Mickey

Play
Read more
Often, when we study people from the Bible, we feel as if we are studying larger-than life figures, people who are not at all like us, people who are extraordinary. Whether or not we recognize it, this can make us feel as if God can’t work through us because our lives are too “ordinary.”

But what if God loves to work through ordinary people?

What if God’s best work is often done in the quiet of our ordinary days, through ordinary activities, ordinary moments, ordinary relationships?

What if the ordinary is actually - in the Kingdom of Jesus - truly extraordinary?

We look forward to exploring many of the ordinary people from the pages of Scripture, through whom God did extraordinary things throughout history. We hope this series, (Extra)ordinary, will inspire each and every one of us that no moment is simply ordinary when God is involved!

We may be ordinary people, but we worship, and are empowered by, an extraordinary God!

Why Did Jesus Have to Die? : Passover - Jeff Mickey

Play
Read more
According to the Apostle Paul the cross lies at the very heart of the Christian faith. In the letter to the church at Galatia, Paul wrote: “God forbid that I should boast of anything but the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ.” (Galatians 6:14)

The cross is the centerpiece.

But why? Have you ever wondered that?

Why did Jesus have to die?

And why did Jesus have to die on a cross?

Why did Jesus have to die in such a cruel and inhumane way?

Why did Jesus have to die the death of a common criminal?

Thankfully, God does not leave us without answers.

The biblical writers use multiple metaphors, pictures and images to help us glimpse the majestic power at work on the cross.

Why did Jesus have to die?

The answer is

... bigger than we have been told.

… more beautiful than we can comprehend.

… better than mere words can describe.

Join us during the 4 weeks before Easter as we explore this important question together.

UNSTUCK: Setting Healthy Boundaries - Jeff Mickey

Play
Read more
We humans are creatures of habit. Sometimes our habits are good, healthy and helpful. Other times, however, our habits are not good, unhealthy and unhelpful and they lead to real problems in our marriages and in our families.

We feel helpless to fix things.

We feel stuck.

We believe that Jesus wants to help us become Unstuck.

We believe that the Bible offers practical help for us in our most intimate, important relationships.

In this 6-week teaching series, we will explore and bring to light unhealthy patterns that tend to plague us in our marriages and in our parenting.

Our teachers will offer practical teaching from the book of Romans, chapter 12, that we believe God will use to help each one of us become Unstuck and to move toward healthy and happy ways of living life together in our families and friendships.

Jump In - Jeff Mickey

Play
Read more
Have you ever heard someone at Orchard say, “Everyone’s welcome?” Does the church really mean it? And what exactly does that look like in practice? Or, how about, “pick up your paddle?” That’s kinda weird, especially if you’re somewhat new to the church. However, the reference is decades old and refers to a metaphor of the church as a whitewater raft and the need to have everyone in the raft working together, serving in order to navigate the turbulent water. Come find out what rafting and welcoming have to do with accomplishing the mission God has given our church. Learn how and be inspired to jump in a raft with us and find out what you can expect from the experience and where the adventure is leading us.

Run For Your Life - Jeff Mickey

Play
Read more
Followers of Jesus across the globe and across the centuries have arranged their lives in certain ways to help them grow closer to God. We need to do the same. And yet we are all unique; each one of us has specific pathways that lead us to growth. As a church, we plan to spend the summer exploring a few important questions related to our spiritual growth:

What does it look like in our ordinary lives to grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus?
What kinds of things might we include - or not include - in our lives in order to stay close to God?
How do we rearrange our lives so that we can grow spiritually?
What is the goal of spiritual growth?
Practically, in the midst of our very full lives, how do we make room for the things that deeply connect us to God?

Our hope is that as our teachers pull back the curtain on our lives, we will encourage you to continue to engage in certain actions that help you grow. For some of you, we will encourage you to re-engage things you’ve let slide. And for others, we want to encourage you to start - for the very first time - to rearrange your lives with the intention of growing closer to God right in the midst of our ordinary days.

Easter Service 2019 - Jeff Mickey

Play
Read more
He is risen! Really? Even his followers wrestled with the idea that after being crucified and buried Jesus was raised from the dead. It was hard to believe then, and it’s hard to believe now. But the resurrection of Jesus is the foundation of the Christian faith. If it didn’t happen, we are fools to follow Jesus, but if it did, image the possibilities!
