Rank #1: Greatest Hits: Remember the Glory - Ed Baker

Podcast cover
Read more
Summertime just feels like the right time for the classics. Join us as our teachers dig back into history to re-teach some of their very best teachings! We will - amongst other things - revisit a verse-by-verse analysis of The Lord’s Prayer, hear some favorite teaching stories, learn what to do with regret, and ponder why it seems God answers some prayers and not others. This promises to be a fun, powerful and energizing 5-week series as we move as a congregation toward Fall and our annual Gathering service.

Rank #2: Stories From the Seats - Jean Bennett

Podcast cover

We believe that by learning how God works in the lives of others, we more clearly see the way God works in our own. Jean Bennett is a self-proclaimed over-achiever. Her story includes a painful divorce that led to a deep understanding of God's redemption and grace.

Rank #3: Rest: Number Your Days - Doug Tensen

Podcast cover
Read more
We live in a culture that loves to maximize everything! Push the limits as far as possible. And then, push some more. This is our standard operating procedure in nearly every area of our lives.

Work hard. Play hard. Crash hard. Repeat

We are overloaded in every arena of life.We’re like minnows caught in a flash flood of good, successful, even unselfish activity. In many ways, we are victims of progress, which “always gives us more of everything faster and faster.” The problem is - most of us don’t need more and we definitely don’t need it faster. What we need is margin. What we need is rest.

REST. It’s exactly what God so generously offers us in the gift of Sabbath.

This series invites you to step into summer and stop to enjoy the rest of God. We’ll explore and attempt to dispel some of the misconceptions about Sabbath, recall God’s gracious instruction and generous permission to delight in Sabbath, and demonstrate inspiring new ways to open and enjoy one of God’s greatest gifts - the gift of REST.

Rank #6: UNSTUCK: Raising Cherished Daughters and Sons - Dave Bartlett

Podcast cover
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.

Rank #7: Bless a Broken World: Bless Your Workplace - Eric Lins

Podcast cover
Read more
It’s no secret that our world is broken. Brokenness is one thing EVERYONE has in common. The good news is that God is at work to restore us and our world. This is the work God’s been doing ever since sin entered the world and messed everything up. When God first invited a group of people to be His people He said to Abram, “I will bless you… and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you." God’s mission is to put us back together and our mission is to join him as we encounter brokenness in our own world.
As we learn about - and remember - our own stories of pain and brokenness and God’s story of restoration, we discover the one thing we all have in common - our need for God’s blessing in the midst of our own brokenness. We receive this blessing in Jesus, whose life, death and resurrection undoes our brokenness and gives us new life. But Jesus doesn’t want his blessing to stop with us. He invites us to help pass on this blessing as we encounter brokenness in our world.
Join us as we explore this invitation to join God in blessing our broken world by receiving God’s blessing and passing it on as we encounter brokenness in our families, neighborhoods, places of work, and the world.

Rank #8: New Every Morning: God Ain’t Scared - Alice Shirey

Podcast cover
Read more
What happens when our world falls apart?
How do we find strength to keep going?
Where does our faith truly reside?
What do we do when God seems absent?
How do we find strength in community?

It is not hard to understand why the book of Lamentations in the Old Testament might be one of the most neglected books in all of the Bible. It is a book of poetry written about the most significant catastrophe of the Israelite people - the destruction of Jerusalem in 587 BC.

In it, we find language - poetry, metaphor, imagery - for all the grief, pain and confusion the people of God felt. When their world fell apart. The poems use all the letters of the Hebrew alphabet to help fully plumb the depths of the people’s pain.

At the very center of this book, however, we find one of the fiercest statements of faith and trust in all of Scripture. A bedrock reminder that even when the bottom falls out, the center can hold, if the center is built on the right foundation.

We will each face hardship, pain, loss and despair. Lamentations teaches us to hold firmly to our faith while giving us grace-filled permission to pour out all of our grief, anger and confusion - from A to Z - to the God who loves us, whose faithfulness is great, and whose mercies are ever-new.

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!

Rank #11: The Big Break-Up - Alice Shirey

Podcast cover
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.

Rank #12: Unexpected: Unexpected Message - Dave Bartlett

Podcast cover
Read more
God often turns up unannounced, uninvited, unrecognized. God appears in the Bible as stranger more often than we realize. God also appears in our lives as stranger more often than we recognize. This is true in the Advent story. God appears in this story as both friend and stranger. He comes to earth in ways none of us would ever have dreamed of. His interactions with the people involved are often odd and hard to understand. And all the while, God is at work moving His rescue plan of this world forward and inviting ordinary people, just like us, to join with him in his work.

Rank #15: Prodigal Family: It’s Your Move - Alice Shirey

Podcast cover
Read more
This five week series takes a new look at an old parable told by Jesus (Luke 15: 11-32). In many of our Bibles this story is labeled the Parable of the Lost Son. With our focus upon family during the month of February, a better title for the parable would be: The Parable of the Two Lost Sons.

As we study this parable to learn how God relates to two lost sons, we will also focus upon how we are called to reflect these same virtues within our family and friendships. This practical and challenging series will focus upon how both sons rebelled against the Father--one by being selfish and immoral and the other by being carefully obedient as a strategy for rebelling against the Father. Religious people often live very moral lives but their goal is to get leverage over God so that He owes them and they can control Him.

Our hope and prayer is that this series will help our families experience freedom, unconditional forgiveness, humility and help each of us love deeply within our context.

Being a follower of Jesus requires us to be lifelong learners. As we follow Jesus, we need to stay open to all that he wants to teach us. One question this requires us to ask ourselves is this: How wide is the bandwidth of people from whom I am willing to learn? Am I willing to learn from those who are much younger? Or older? Or from those who are very different from me? In this series we will be challenged to become people who are learners and watching for God to surprise us as we learn from many different kinds of people.

Rank #19: PART 1 -Derailed: Shocked - Jeff Mickey

Podcast cover
Read more
Our lives can be pictured as two rails. One rail represents the joys set before us as gifts from God. The other rail represents the pains, struggles and disappointments that are part of living in a broken world. We are often on both rails at the same time. Grandpa dies the same week his first grandchild is born. A family feels great joy at a Christmas Eve service and leaves to go visit mom at the hospice house. My marriage is everything I’ve always dreamed but we cannot seem to get pregnant. I’ve just graduated with honors and I cannot find a job. It looks like I’ll be going back home for a time.

Every life gets derailed at some point. The derailment can be a tragedy, a deep loss or even a serious disappointment. The derailment requires a journey to get back on the tracks. The journey may have 6 stages: Shock, Sorrow, Struggle, Surrender, Sanctification and Service. Often people get stuck especially in the gap between struggle and surrender. These six stages of the derailment journey can take years to travel. Each journey is unique.

In this series we want to help people who are on a journey after being derailed and we want to help people who are walking with friends and loved ones who have been derailed. We will bring Biblical principles and real life stories to encourage those on this journey and those walking with them.

Rank #20: Perfect Presents: Frankincense - Alice Shirey

Podcast cover
Read more
Jesus came into our broken world to bless it; to be Immanuel - God with us.

But, as the gospel writer John said, Jesus came into the world and was not recognized for who he really was.
But somehow the Magi (we affectionately know them as The Three Wise men) knew who Jesus was. They traveled far to worship him, to bring him gifts, to protect him from Herod. The Magi show us who Jesus was, is and always will be: King, Prophet, Priest, Savior.

Simultaneously, Herod shows us the depth of human brokenness. He demonstrates the damage fear, pride and self-protection cause.

Am I more like the Magi as I relate to Jesus? Or am I more like Herod?

Join us this Advent season as we explore the meaning of the birth of Jesus through the lens of the three gifts the Magi brought the newborn baby Jesus. Each gift will be a springboard to learn more about who Jesus was from his birth.

Upside Down: Small is the New Big - Stef Rohler [GRUNDY COUNTY]

Podcast cover

Jesus said that life in the Kingdom of his Father is often the polar opposite of how life works in the world around us. This kind of teaching was hard for Jesus’ original listeners to understand, and it is equally hard for followers today. We are always deeply tempted to go-with-the-flow and to live as everyone else lives.

As we approach this season in our country where a pandemic rages, racial strife is rampant and a contentious election looms, it is more important than ever that the church, and all who follow Jesus, revisit Jesus’ upside-down Kingdom ethics. And not just revisit them, but commit to practice them in our everyday lives.

Now, as always, we are called to live out the seemingly nonsensical teachings of Jesus as a sign of faith, as a sign of trust, and as a sign to the world of the beauty and power and sheer goodness of the Kingdom of our God.

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?

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!
