What Do You Want?

Jesus calls us to follow him -- because he knows how to live a true, full, fulfilled life -- but he always meets us where we are. Pastor Justin Fung kicks off a new series -- and introduces a church-wide experience: Learning to Live -- by inviting us to be honest in answering a question that Jesus asked: "What do you want?"

Epiphany & Endurance: Lessons from the Magi

Pastor Watson starts off 2020 with a look at the lessons we can learn from the Magi. As we consider the things we'll love—and the things we'll pursue—this year, the wise men offer wisdom on how to run, fight, and wait in order to bring glory to God.

An Advent Future

Pastor Watson wraps up our series on Anticipating Advent by looking toward a future where Christ fulfills all that he began. Our Kids City Director, Nikki Wiggins, reminds us of the best gift we ever received at Christmas.

The Second Coming of Christ

For the third Sunday of Advent, Dana Cunliffe preaches on how Advent exists in both the past, the present, and the future. At Christmas, it's natural for us to celebrate what happened 2,000 years ago, and also how Jesus is present with us now. But Dana highlights how important it is to remember and anticipate the future advent - the second coming of Christ.

Peace and Gathering

In Isaiah 11, we find a people desperately waiting for the return of their King. Isaiah is anticipating the arrival of a King who will bring peace and gather the people. Jesus is this long-awaited King. Pastor Watson asks what it may look like now, to say yes to Jesus and the advent that we're anticipating in our own hearts and minds.

May You Find a Light

Pastor Justin Fung introduces our Anticipating Advent series, which will explore the prophesies about Jesus in the book of Isaiah. As Christians, we celebrate Christmas as Jesus' first Advent, when the kingdom broke into reality; but we look forward to his second Advent, his return, when he promises that all things will be made new. In this sermon, Justin asks, "What are you waiting for, and what sustains you in the wait?" He unpacks the vision of hope in Isaiah 9 and urges us to actively anticipate Advent this Christmas season.

Ruth 4: Resilience, Risk-taking and Redemption

In the final sermon in our series on Ruth, Pastor Lisa Rodriguez-Watson asks, "What does it mean to live faithfully forward?" We often believe the lies and labels that people give us because of our circumstances or things that have happened to us, but God wants us to see ourselves the way God sees us. Despite her background and challenges, Ruth was full of resilience and determination. She took faithful risks, leading to her redemption. As a foremother to Jesus, Ruth points the way toward him.

Ruth 3: Displays of Character and Hope

Pastor Watson highlights how Ruth, Naomi, and Boaz exhibit fidelity, integrity, and hope - and how these qualities in Ruth point us to Jesus.

Ruth 2: Providence and Participation

Have you ever wondered how God provides? Pastor Justin Fung talks about how Ruth 2 shows us that God provides, in large part through people of compassion and commitment, who care for one another and the common good. Or to put it more personally: no matter our situation, we can be—we are called to be, we are needed as—instruments of God’s blessing, offering healing and grace to others.
