Ephesians: Your Church is Too Small
Ephesians 5: What Paul REALLY Said About Women
December 11th, 2016 - Pastor Charlie Sattgast
For the END of our series, that's right, we're looking at Ephesians 5. What Paul REALLY said about women. Submit? Really? This Sunday we'll take a fresh look at Ephesians 5 and unpack what Paul was really getting at regarding husbands and wives. It's more than meets the eye.
Walk in Progress
December 4th, 2016 - Pastor Bob Vander Meer
Darkness vs light does not mean seeing things as black and white. Our heads and hearts need to get involved to understand what it means. Pastor Bob uses a "Happy Feet" reference to call us to action.
Sin and New Life
November 20th, 2016 - Pastor Ryan Saari
Paul starts to get into how we should be living. All sorts of things being talked about this week, but we'll spend most of our time getting deeper into the meaning of what Paul is really talking about, and how we can be living it each and every day.
November 13th, 2016 - Pastor Ryan Saari
This week we get into the goooood stuff. Ephesians 4. We've got Trinitarian doctrine, strung ethical instruction, and poetic guidance on the prescription for community, and True Life. It's a good one.
Taste My Salmon!

This week! We continue our series in the Book of Ephesians. As we get into chapter 3, this week we get a prayer. Paul is praying for us, the Church. And what is his prayer? That we would develop a sensitivity to Gospel truth in our daily lives. And how that understanding opens us up to lives of hope, joy, and community.
Economy of Grace
October 23rd, 2016 - Pastor Bob Vander Meer
This week! We continue our Series on the Book of Ephesians "Your Church is Too Small". Chapter 3...they didn't see it coming. A new way of doing things. A new system. A new currency. Exploding heads. Ephesians.

Bulk of the Series right here. Ephesians 2.11-22. This is what we're talking about when we say "Your Church is Too Small." This week we're going to confront our propensity for tribalism. Us v. Them. We're good because this, they're bad because of this. Jesus has destroyed the dividing wall of hostility. What does this mean for us today?
October 9th, 2016 - Pastor Ryan Saari
This week! We continue our Series on the Book of Ephesians and talk about life. Or life after death. Like zombies. This week, we talk about zombies. And what it means to be "alive in Christ". Freedom from boasting. Freedom from competition. Freedom from hatred. Freedom to live.
Managing Our Inheritance
October 2nd, 2016 - Aimee Pahl
This week! We continue our Series in the book of Ephesians - Your Church is Too Small. Guest speaker Aimee Pahl finishes up chapter 1 with a little of God's glory, Jesus' placement at the right hand of the Father, the general badassery of Jesus in Heaven...all that.
Doc Brown Was a Liar!
September 18th, 2016 - Pastor Ryan Saari
Love that we get to study the Book of Ephesians together. This week, we look at "the plan". What does it mean to have free will, if God has a plan? Are we really free? Is this the Matrix? Who's behind the curtain? We're going to allow Bertrand Russell, Sophocles, and the Apostle Paul speak into this challenge for us this week. Can't wait!

This week we kick off our New Series! Together, we'll be spending the Fall going through the Book of Ephesians. We're calling it "Your Church is Too Small". I can't wait for us to dive into this book that is about, among many things, what "the Church" is. Or, maybe more importantly, WHO the Church is. Looking forward to what we discover together.
Listen to the sounds of a whole 'nother O, The Oregon Community! Join Pastors Ryan Saari, Ron Hockley, Bob Vander Meer and special guests as they pontificate on love, life, and the Bible. From Acts to Zion, the word of God is spoken into our ear-holes and absorbed into our eternal-souls. Join us, who knows, you may learn something!
Together, we're going to go through the life of Jesus. His teachings, and his death and resurrection. Discovering all along the way what this Gospel is. At every step, every stage, it's God flipping civilization on it's head. Reconstructing, not only the questions, but most definitely, the answers.
Holidays, guest speakers and special sermons. Here you will find them all.

Throughout this series, we're going to be looking at various ideas, relationships, practices and theories and simply ask, "Is this outdated?" Have we been banging our heads against the wall, trying to break through. Trying to understand. Trying to grow. But in reality, we're approaching the whole thing wrong. It's antiquated. It's outdated.
Our new series is called Words and Stories. We will be looking at, you guessed it, words and stories that Jesus told. Some are the ones we gloss over because they don't make any sense, others we gloss over because we've heard them again and again. But there's more. There's always more.
This isn't going to be another "Put your best foot forward" kind of series. This is going to be a battle, a war. The choice to follow the Spirit, to be lead by our muse. Engage in the power and beauty of this life, or be conquered by it, and just be another epitaph: born this day, died this day. I'm excited to win this war, together. Come join us...
Together we're going to study each of the Fruits of the Spirit, and talk about how they're more than just "good things" that we should do. It's more than just a list of virtues. Right?
As our church approaches a milestone birthday, we take a look once again at who we are.
I thought I read everything... until I read this!
Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time.
He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannont see the whole scope of God's work from beginning to end. Ecclesaistes 3.11
