Missing Out Series

Missing Out Series

We all know what it is like to get walloped by a mis… not sure what that means? Lets say it this way – we need to have a faith that can withstand whatever the world brings our direction: those who mistreat us, mislead us, and misdirect us. (see all three words start with mis?) We would love to miss out on mistreatment, misleading, and misdirection. While we can’t miss out on those things, we can have a faith that is unstoppable, even when life is unfair, even when everyone around us is moving a different direction.

Cancel Culture Series

Cancel Culture Series

Cancel Culture is a phrase that is heard way too often today. When something is canceled, it is nulled, ended, voided. Done, over, no longer wanted, like a TV show or subscription.
But today that same idea is also applied to people, that sense of cancel is the basic idea behind the slang meaning of canceling a person. When a person is canceled, they are no longer supported.
Usually if someone is said to be canceled is because they have done something to offend someone else or taken a position that is not popular with the mainstream of thought.
We live in hyper sensitive times and because of the ease of communication and social media, we would rather cancel someone than actually deal with them.
It might surprise you to find that although the phrase seems fresh, the idea of cancel culture is not new. As a matter of fact, it has been happening for thousands of years.
So how do you live as a follower of Jesus in a cancel culture? This series, which features Easter Sunday, gives us a chance to look at how we fit into, work inside, and shape the culture around us that instead of really working through tough issues would rather just erase them and act as if they never existed. It is the perfect playing field for the people of God to have some of their best days and most fun.

End of the World as We Know It Series

Now if we can be honest, it has been one wild and wacky year. It seems like one thing after another has happened and just when you thought it could not get any stranger, it did. On top of that, we have just come off of an election season and depending on how you voted, you are either elated or depressed. In some ways we wonder if we are living in the end times. Brace yourself, it is about to get even stranger because we are going to jump into a four week series based on the Book of Revelation called – The End of the World as we Know it.

The Haze of Fear Series

Have you ever been afraid? What is it that you are afraid of? Everyone in the life has experienced fear, that is not unexpected. Left unchecked, fear can become like a virus that spreads, infects us, and causes us to miss out on the best part of living life. The great news is that you don’t have to face fear alone, as a matter of fact, God has some answers for you when you face fear. This series we blow through the haze of fear with some real life practical advice on how to make our lives more successful where we don’t have to be paralyzed by fear.

For the Love of God Series

Everyone worships something. In our culture the things that we worship are the things that begin to shape us and define us. There is nothing new about that, it has been happening for generations. But if we are a follower of Jesus Christ, then as we worship Him we begin to understand the depth and reality of how good He is and how deep His love really is. In this series, we get a chance to see in an up-close and personal way how much He loves us and how that love changes us. If we get it right, we discover that we are driven and motivated to do what we do for the love of God.

Pandemic Pandemonium Series

If you were to read the definition of “pandemonium” it would read “a wild or noisy disorder or confusion” and then be defined as “an uproar in a chaotic situation”

Unless you have been living under a rock or been quarantined without power you are very aware of the global pandemic that has disrupted the lives of most people one way or another. This series allows us to wander into the uproar in the chaos of our culture and tackle the real life questions with some real world answers.

The bulk of this series will revolve around 2 different Psalms, both written long ago but somehow manage to capture the mood, the hurt, the longing and the need we have today as we try to make sense of it all. We need help, it is pandemonium, and if the chaos is not enough add a little corvid craziness to the mix. The great news is that God is right beside you, where He has always been, and is ready to help you.

Dent the Universe Series

Life is more than just getting old and getting to the end. It is more than just accumulating stuff and collecting things.
The call of Christ is to touch and change the world with the love of Jesus.

When His people take that call and decide to live life to the fullest for Him they dent the universe… they reshape the world, they leave a mark, they leave a legacy – His Legacy!

Are you ready to live as the blessing you were created to be?
If so, lets Dent the Universe!

The Return Series

Each one of us is on a journey. At times the journey seems easy and we don’t give it much thought. At other times, the journey is more difficult and the unexpected surprises seem harsh and maybe even frightening. But in each of our lives, making sure we take the journey with God makes all the difference. In the Bible, the Old Testament reveals that God’s presence was with the people through the Ark of the Covenant. We are going to do a deep dive into the Word as we return and reopen our campus, reconnect with one another, and reorient our lives so that we might truly be a people after God’s own heart. The return will be an amazing time of celebrating the presence and goodness of God.

Hold On! Series

The Church @ 434 Christmas Celebration

Time at the Table

It is Sunday on a Thanksgiving weekend. This week has been one where people have traveled, connected with family and friends, eaten more than they should have, and hopefully spent some time giving “thanks.” The time at the table we experienced this week is a great way to move us into the Christmas season, but before we push away from the table too quickly – there is something else we need to do. This worship experience today gives us time to do just that.

You Must Be This Tall to Ride Series

Most of us think eternity is something that begins after we die. However, Jesus didn’t talk about eternity that way. Many might be startled to find out that Jesus defined eternal life only once – the words He used were clear and easy to understand, but for many they are often lost or ignored.

Could it be that salvation is not as much about getting you into heaven, as it is getting heaven into you? If it is, then get ready for the ride of your life! Eternal life that is!

Launch Series

We are called to touch and change the world with the love of Jesus. But let’s be honest – the world can be a frightening and tough place.

Although we have never been more educated, entertained, or connected – the world we see around is loaded with problems (and some of them are your own problems.) It is tough to touch and change anything when there is so much difficulty.

Hold on – maybe it is time to let the incredible power of God blow across the landscape of our lives and the world we live in. We can be a force of change in the world around us because of the hope He gives. His promises are bigger than any and every problem.

If you believe that truth – then you can find the freedom and joy of launching into the world – and changing it.

Churchnado Series

Churchnado, what else is there to say? SURGE DAY event and CORE study.

Son-Burned, Wind-Blown and Dirt-Stained Page

If we are going to live our lives using what we have, doing what we can and trusting God for the results – then the time to get started is right now. Here are three essential qualities that will help us be successful as we follow God. They are simple, practical and real.

Teachers Rock Page

In this special worship service, we take the time to honor our teachers and educators as well as taking a look at how Jesus looked at things differently than the disciples and how He can use what you have when you trust Him with the results.

Wonder Women Series

You may have read their stories of courage, vision, and giftedness. It is no wonder that women are so important to understand the plan of God, in the Bible. But make no mistake, these women are not “extras” in God’s cast – instead they are at the very heart of His work in the world. This series features a very special glimpse at a group of wonder women. Their lives remind us, inspire us, and instruct us how to live heroic lives and awaken the hero in each of us.

Special Guest Sundays Page

This is a collection of worship services that we had a special guest teach us. This does not include the Biblical Discovery series, etc.

Shipwrecked Series

Most people have never had to live through an actual shipwreck, although there are moments that life can feel like a shipwreck to be sure. In those moments, we want to be rescued but we also want to discover help that can carry us through the storm. If you have ever felt that way, then this is your series. We are going to move into a passage of Scripture and find an actual shipwreck we can learn from, along with some anchors that will help us navigate moments when our life gets tossed about.

Animal Crackers Series

Did you know that the famous boxes of Barnum’s Animal Crackers were designed the way they were so they could be used as decorations on Christmas trees? Well, it is true. These crazy, funny animal crackers were originally designed to be a surprising decoration. In the Bible there are some fun, weird, interesting and wacky stories about animals that in some ways “decorate” the story of God with life lessons that teach us a great deal.

Stranger Things Series

We live in a world that can easily be described as “upside down.” There are times that we all struggle with trying to understand what is happening around us. How is it possible to process what seems to be swirling out of control? Is there a way that we can turn the “upside down” upside down?

Lifehack Series

A lifehack is a strategy or technique that is used to make life better. We use them all the time, we may not call them lifehacks, but they are real. Often these lifehacks are counter-intuitive… in other words, on the surface they seem silly or even a bit impractical or outlandish – but they work. Sometimes as we read the Bible, we think, that sounds good but I just can’t do that – but when we try it, it works. In this Lifehack series, we take some bold strides to follow the example that Jesus gives us and along the way, make our lives better.

All is C.A.L.M. Series

This series is built upon some of the most amazing verses in all of Scripture. You may or may not know that the Bible is the Amazon Kindle’s most highlighted book. The passage we are looking at is the most highlighted passage. Over the next few studies we will dig in and excavate 5 verses and discover 4 admonitions that lead to one wonderful gem of a promise.

Christmas Lists Series

It is the most wonderful time of the year. Christmas is loaded with moments and memories that can change your life forever. The struggle can be how to get it all – or find room to fit – it all in. There is so much to do but so little time. So, we keep lists… they keep us “on task – on purpose – and on time.”
