When Jesus came, He brought heaven to earth. He called this “His kingdom,” a kingdom unlike any other kingdom in the world.
In this series, we will study the implications of what Christ said and did regarding His Kingdom… His message, His methods, and His expectations of anyone who claims to follow Him. By spending time leaning in, seeking to understand and recognizing the ramifications of what Jesus brought to earth for right now and for the future, we might find ourselves standing in silence wondering about our proximity to the Kingdom of God… or better yet… the manifestation of this Kingdom in us and through us.
It is human nature to ask questions. We have a natural desire for clarity. This desire is magnified when the questions we ask are about…ourselves and the lives we lead and live. Does God see me? Does God know me? Does God care for me? How can I really help others? What does God do with what he sees?
Join us this advent season as we discover together what it means to be Seen and Known.
We approach every situation in one way ... or another. "This way or that way."And if we are being honest, more often than not we choose ... OUR way. The way that makes the most sense to us; the way we think we know; the way someone we respect or admire would recommend; the "right" way. Throughout the Gospels, we see Jesus approach everything we experience through a different lens. His lens. An inverted way. A different way. A better way.
Throughout the Everyday Theology sermon series, we will explore foundational tenets of the Christian faith as revealed in chapters 5-8 of the book of Romans. Rather than giving us mere knowledge about God and His plan for restoring our relationship with Him through the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross, we will learn from Paul who urges us to understand what it means to have more of God Himself and the life Jesus died to give us — right now and for eternity.
We are going to CHOOSE biblical hope by opening our Bibles and allowing the Holy Spirit to fill us, to encourage us. Join us as we focus on this hope that is available to anchor us in the midst of storms.
Jesus said that loving God and loving our neighbors is the foundation of our faith. As Christ-followers, we have the responsibility to live this out in every area of our lives. We invite you to join us for the Listen. Learn Love. series, where we will unpack some difficult yet necessary biblical truths centering around racism, injustice, and sin.
What does love require? Over six weeks we'll look at the Old and New Testament and study Jesus' time on earth to uncover what His ministry looked like and learn how we can love more like Him. This study will produce thought-provoking questions that'll encourage great discussions in your Community Group throughout the week!
In this Advent series we will study John 1:1-14 where we'll study how Jesus is the light of the world. We hope you discover more about Jesus and how His light shines through you this season. Then, join us on December 22nd in Hayward or December 24th in Livermore, Brentwood, Danville, Walnut Creek or online as we celebrate the Christmas season together!
