    Praying Through the Pain
    All throughout this series, the writer of Lamentations has lamented over the horrendous atrocities of his time. Too countless to name. In all of this, this is a glimmer of hope. Through the storm and pain, we sense what all people sense for more than 2000 years. Someone is out there. This someone is not nameless or faceless...it is Jesus, the son of God!

    Ask For Help
    Series: Note To Self
    It is healthy and good to ask for help from others. There is great power in making an ask of someone. However, we are not good at asking for help. Why is this? Jesus said "seek and you will find, knock and the door will be open." Jesus invites us into a different way.

    Worry Less
    Series: Note To Self
    Sometimes we just need a reminder, and post-in notes often to the trick. Whether to jot down a note or thought and stick it in a place we can remember. Jesus taught, inspired and challenged people during his ministry on earth. One issue Jesus tackled was worry. He told us not to worry about life....but let's be honest, that's almost impossible, not to worry. And yet, worry is a disproportionate level of concern based on an inappropriate measure of fear.  What does that mean? Well take a listen.

    Series: Elemental
    We are a church that "has ridiculous hospitality." We take those words to heart. How we treat others and care for individuals is important. It's also important to take a step towards ridiculous hospitality when it comes to strangers too.
