As Americans, the vast majority of us fall in the top 1% of wage-earners in the world. So the question we need to ask is not, "how do I get more?" but instead, "How can i BE rich?" In other words, how can I live a God-honoring life with the riches I already have?
Have you ever been stuck in the rat race? Spinning your wheels working harder and harder to gain more and more stuff just to keep up with everyone around you? In this series we'll explore God's plan for getting out of that rut... and Avoiding the Rat Race.
Marriage is a lifelong commitment to one another. This commitment does not have to be a burden, or a drag. God wants us to enjoy our spouse the entirety of our lives. One of the ways we can enjoy our spouse for a lifetime is by "Celebrating Fun"!
Conflict in marriage can be tough, but it is not something we need to fear. Through conflict we can often strengthen and rediscover our love for one another.
God desires that our marriages thrive. Song of Songs gives us a beautiful Love Story to help deepen our marriages. This week we discuss how we can deepen our marriages by "bragging" about our spouse.
We were created to live in deep and meaningful relationships with others, but in our world today finding and keeping these relationships can be challenging. As we continue to dive into Romans 12, we see that we cannot have these types of relationships without empathy.
We all want deep and meaningful relationships, but there are traps that can derail the peace and harmony of those relationships. Paul gives us keys on how to keep peace and harmony in the relationships that matter the most to us.
We are relational beings. God designed us this way. He designed us to be in deep and meaningful relationship with Him and with each other.

Throughout this series we have seen that as Christ-followers we are called to serve as Jesus served. And as we serve as Jesus did, there are some "blessings", some benefits, that come with a lifestyle of service.
Jesus' example of serving in John 13 is one of his most defining moments. Is your life defined as one who washes the feet of others?
The Bible is full of amazing imagery, but one of the images we don't think about very often, perhaps because it's so mundane, is a basin and towel. In that simple image, Jesus gives us a tangible example of what it looks like to serve.
This ancient book concludes with two challenging ideas. Jonah's sin, and God's compassion. The question we are faced with today...Are we as concerned with Nineveh as God is concerned with Nineveh?
The book of Jonah has a common theme that really comes to the forefront in Chapter 3. That theme is this...God is a God of Second Chances. He extends a second chance to Jonah, the people of Nineveh and also to us today.
Jonah is book that can easily be looked at as a children's story of man being swallowed by a giant fish. But as you dive deeper into the story a complex web of how God interacts with humanity begins to unfold. This week we explore what it means to step outside of our comfort zone.
The message of Jesus always showed a new way...a better way to live...a way that was for people not against them. That message is not always easy to live out, especially with those who try and do us harm. Yet, Jesus says to love them. Explore with us why Jesus calls us to Love Our Enemies.
