The Life I've Always Wanted

The Witness I've Always Wanted
December 13th, 2015 - Pastor Jason Thomas

What does it mean to live as a witness for Christ?  How do we best demonstrate, communicate and share our faith, in a world that doesn't want to hear it?  I used to do street evangelism.  It was excruciating.  I don't know if it was bad, but just excruciating.  And, maybe more memorably, ineffectual.  Please tell me that our faith can be shared and LIVED in a way that truly is Good News.  Special guest, Pastor Jason Thomas speaks.

On Raising Small Humans
December 6th, 2015 - Pastor Ron Hockley

This week, we talk kids.  What in the world are people thinking having these things??  As we look at the life we've always wanted, we look at the life we want for them.  How do we get that?  More importantly, what is it? 

Marriage
November 22nd, 2015 - Pastor Ryan Saari

We continue to look at ourselves and say, "What happened?" Ok...maybe not exactly that.  But that's what it's been feeling like.  Each week, we look at an aspect of our life and ask, is this what I've always wanted?  We continue this Sunday to look at our relationships.  Those around us.  What they say.  How we handle it.  And what it would look like if we actually listened.

Marriage: So this is it.
November 15th, 2015 - Pastor Bob Vander Meer

In this series, we've looked at lots of different things in our life, with one question in mind: Is this what I've always wanted?  This Sunday: Marriage.   Not just marriage, but all of our deep, intimate relationships.  Is this what I've always wanted?

Intimacy With God in Just 20 Minutes a Day!
November 8th, 2015 - Pastor Ron Hockley

This week, we continue to talk about this idea of Intimacy With God.  What does that even mean?  How can one be intimate with One who simply says, "You can't really know me..."  At least not fully.  Maybe awe of God’s “otherness” is the very thing missing in our sentimental evangelical quest for warm fuzzy feelings when it comes to God. Maybe our search for them can be a bit like Aaron’s golden calf – an idolatrous attempt at intimacy when intimacy isn’t what the doctor ordered. Or at least it’s only half.

Spirituality
November 1st, 2015 - Pastor Ryan Saari

Let's get Spiritual up in here.  This week!  We talk God and stuff.  What does it look like to have the Spiritual life you've always wanted?  What even is a "spiritual life"? 

Subatomic Virtue
October 18th, 2015 - Pastor Ryan Saari

This Sunday, we continue our Series, talking about Knowledge.  Am I really as smart as I've always wanted to be?

Relationships
October 11th, 2015 - Pastor Bob Vander Meer

This Sunday we follow up with our chat from last week on...relationships.  "Truth is, everybody is going to hurt you; you just gotta find the ones worth suffering for." - Bob Marley

The Friend I've Always Wanted
October 4th, 2015 - Pastor Ryan Saari

What have you always wanted in a friend?  When you think about a Community that you've always dreamed about, what does it look like?   This week, we are going to look at our relationships, our friendships and connections, and we're going to see if we can make music together.

I Thought I'd Be Richer
September 20th, 2015 - Pastor Bob Vander Meer

This Sunday, we continue The Life I've Always Wanted.  Each week, we're going to look at a specific area of our lives and see how we're doing.  Are we happy?  Is it what we've always wanted?

But Right Now I Kind of Suck
September 13th, 2015 - Pastor Ryan Saari

This week, "The War of Art".  Together, we're going to look at different areas of our lives, and discover what we really want.  Who do we want to be?  What do we want to be doing?  And...can we actually get there?
