It's Easter! This week's teaching is from Philippians chapter 4, where the Apostle Paul claims to have discovered the secret to finding contentment. This lesson is packed with several practical and immediately applicable principles you can put into practice right away. But more than that, it's a message about the power of the resurrected Christ to bring us true peace. Happy Easter!
This final week of "When Jesus Prayed" is brought to you by Patrick Harrison. He wraps up John 17 by diving into the thoughts that Jesus had on His mind for me and you... that's right, Jesus prayed for me and you that night. You'll definitely want to hear this one.
As we continue in our series through John 17, this week Jesus turns his focus to the disciples. He knows their mission will be harder than they could ever imagine. He prays for their protection and teaches us A LOT along the way.
In John 17, as Jesus was mere hours away from facing the cross, he stops to pray. This series is an in-depth look at what has been called "the greatest prayer ever prayed." In this first week, we unpack the very first sentence to see the true weight of this moment and how amazing God's love or us is. The hour has come.
In this conclusion to our series on loving people the Jesus way, we address what many find to be the greatest obstacle to neighboring well; the fear of actually doing it! Fear can be an unfortunate motivator (or de-motivator in this case) and in this lesson, we'll look at an instance where Jesus set the pace for what it looks like to cross that line and love someone regardless of whatever is keeping you from doing so.
What does it mean to "Love your neighbor?" It's one of the core concepts of Christianity, it's something that most people want to do well. But what does it mean? This week we kick off a series to address the question, "How do we love our neighbor the Jesus way?" Week one is a look at Luke 10 and the story Jesus told about a man who kept his eyes up, looking for a need to meet.

Building bridges with people who have not yet made the choice to follow Jesus can be hard. But it is a privilege and a responsibility! This week we check out what it looks like to build bridges with people so they can know the love of God.
Bridges are everywhere! Crossing difficult terrain, spanning massive bodies of water, and making life simpler. A bridge is a solution to a difficult problem. It’s also the pathway of connection between two places. In a deeper sense, “a bridge” is the coming together of two parties. This intro to “Building Bridges” is about the problem in our lives that God built a bridge to solve.
This series kicks off with a look at 4 postures we take when relating to God. Each posture comes with a caution. In the end, we discover the true treasure of life WITH God.
This series is inspired by the book "With: Reimagining the Way You Relate to God by Skye Jethani
