Extravagant Joy
Apr 2017 - May 2017

Life is often quite demanding and it has a way of pushing and pulling us in different directions. Joy for living is something that we all want but at times, it can be incredibly elusive. From time to time we meet people who seem to ooze unspeakable joy. How can we tap into that kind of joy – the kind that makes our journey as followers of Jesus contagious even in the midst of a crisis? Is it really possible? A little book written to a group of young believers in the city of Philippi would suggest that it is. From start to finish, this letter reminds us as readers about how we might embrace and experience extravagant joy in every season of life.

Generous
Mar 2017

The whole of scripture tells a story about a God who has generously poured out his love on each of us. It began in the creation story in the Book of Genesis as God formed man from the dust of the ground, as He put him into His own incredible garden with an abundance of good food to eat and then as He provided him with a close companion called woman. Even when the man and woman turned their backs on Him, God in His grace continued to keep reaching out and providing a way for humanity to remain in close relationship with Him, as evidenced through the continuing story in scripture. His generosity towards each of us is witnessed once again in the sending of His One and only Son, not to condemn us but to save the world through Him. Jesus was the embodiment of God’s gracious generosity and today it demands a response from us. Join us in our new series as we investigate how we might live out and reciprocate His generosity in the area of our time, tithe and even in the use of our talents.

Who are you? Discovering your identity in Christ.
Feb 2017 - Mar 2017

Our sense of self-worth is often shaped by the identities that our world/culture want to give us. For example, the world/culture says we are valuable because we are married, or we have a job, or we own a house, or we have finished university or a post-graduate degree, or we are popular, or we are beautiful. While none of these things is wrong, our sense of self-worth should never be found in what we DO but in WHO we are in Christ. In other words, what we DO is not WHO we are. Our identity is received, not achieved. 

And what we dwell on has the capacity to shape what we believe to be true about our lives (Proverbs 23:7 NKJV). With this in mind, we want to start our year as followers of Jesus Christ focussing on our true identity, In the end, it's because of WHOM we are that we DO what we do.

prioritywords
Each of us has different things in our lives that we are willing to prioritize. As we start the New Year, some of us will make health and fitness an absolute priority. Others of us will prioritize the importance of family and endeavour to bring some balance back into our busy lives, and others of us will focus on our spiritual growth as a follower of Jesus and make this a matter of great importance or priority. What will you prioritize as you move into 2017? 

Christmas through Heaven's eyes
Dec 2016

The lead up to Christmas always provides us with a great opportunity to take a fresh look at the events surrounding the birth of Christ from a variety of different viewpoints. Over the years we’ve looked at the Biblical account through the eyes of Joseph, Mary, the shepherd, an innkeeper as well as some wise men from afar. We’ve looked at the Christmas story from all of these different perspectives, but this year we’re going to peel back the curtains from heaven and endeavour to see the story this year through their eyes.

Missio Dei
Sep 2016 - Oct 2016

Mission is a word that often means different things to different people. What should the ‘Mission Dei’ (i.e. the mission of God) look like for us as a church as we endeavour to fulfil our vision of reaching our city, state, nation and globe for Christ?
Well over the next five weeks, we will be exploring a story recorded in Luke 10 that involves the sending of the 72. We’ve called this series ‘Missio Dei’ and
we hope it will inspire each of us to think afresh about our calling to make a difference, both across the street and around the globe, as followers of Jesus Christ.
