TOP 5 FAVORITE MESSAGES
A Person Of Purpose
What better way to kick off the new year than considering what it means to be a person of purpose. At the beginning of 2017, Jarrett taught us that we are people in pursuit of purpose. We want our lives to have purpose, but what purpose are we pursuing? If someone were to audit your life, what meaning or mission or purpose would they discover? What do you WANT your life to be about? Or better yet, what might GOD want your life to be about? So much truth is packed within these 35 minutes! Hit play and enjoy!
Discerning Difficult Decisions
Albert Camus once said, “Life is a sum of all your choices.” Your decisions, especially the big and difficult ones, will one day tell the story of your life. Who you marry, where you live, the career you pursue, what you do with your resources, how you respond to life’s challenges – all of this matters! It matters only for today, but for tomorrow as well. It matters not only for you, but also for others. In this powerful message, pastor Jarrett helps us learn how we can make BIG DECISIONS without fear, without getting stuck, and without regret – all by starting with YES.
Just about everything outside of us is trying to define us. So often, it’s who you are with that affects and informs who you are. So many of us go looking for our identity OUTSIDE of who we really are, and that is where the problem lies. When we look to anyone other than God to tell us who we are, we lock ourselves up, and our relationships experience a HEIST. We rob ourselves, and we rob one another.

Crazy In Love
We dedicated an entire series to the life of King David, and on this particular week, Jeanne had us all thinking about the way we worship. “If our worship isn’t magnificent, our gospel must be miniscule.” Worship is so transformative it can open the eyes of people who don’t even want to see, and it can open the ears of people who don’t want to hear. Let this message transform your life today.
Giving Up Distraction
The greatest present we can give is our PRESENCE. In this message, Nancy Beach so practically reminded us that when we give the gift of our presence, we receive rest, connection, reflection and wonder. May her words spark wonder in your heart and laughter in your spirit as you think about ways you can be more present this New Year!
