What does Jesus' Parable of the Farmer and the Scattered Seed have to teach us about being Deeply Rooted in Christ?
We want to be a church whose “roots grow down deep into Christ”. A people whose “lives are built on him” and whose faith is maturing and growing strong in Christ (Colossians 2:6-7). But what does it actually look like to have a mature faith? To be “deeply rooted” in Christ? And why is this so important? Join us as we launch into 2016 by exploring what it is to be a “deeply rooted” people.
It's Valentines Day and love is in the air! Join us as we talk about how being deeply rooted in Christ is to live in love and to have love define every aspect of our lives.
We were created for real, authentic relationships. The Bible teaches that we can never become who God created us to become without them. But why then do we so often settle for fake, fickle, and superficial relationships instead? What does it look like to experience “Deeply Rooted Community” together? Join us Sunday to find out!
Money. We talk about it all the time. We think about all the time. Some of us fight about it with our spouses all the time. And yet it rarely gets talked about in Church. Why is it that we so often separate our finances from our spiritual lives and spiritual journeys? How should people who are “Deeply Rooted” in Christ think about and handle our money?
To be deeply rooted in Christ is to become like Christ. Listen as Jeff teaches from Galatians 5:16-26 on what it means to be led by the Spirit and to become like Jesus.

In the book of Hebrews, we read that, “the word of God is living and active” and “sharper than any two-edged sword.” That it’s in the Bible that we see who we really are and who God really is. So why then do our Bibles so often just sit on our shelves collecting dust? What is the Bible and why should we read it?

We want to be a church that is growing and maturing in Christ. A "Deeply Rooted" Church (Colossians 2:6-7). Because ultimately, who we are becoming will shape what we end up doing!
