Seeing Beneath the Surface

Today’s Message: Seeing Beneath the Surface

Have you ever felt overlooked? People are prone to put labels on each other. Some are seen as smart, as cool, as flaky, or as loyal. The labels we use sometimes leave people overlooked. Samuel once went looking for a new king – and found some candidates who looked the part. But then something unexpected happened. Join us this week as we help people get out of the boxes that people have labeled them as.

Series: Out of the Box

Do you ever feel stuck? Maybe the cycle of exhaustion, or loneliness, or emptiness keeps holding you down. We imagine we know how the world works, and how our story works, but too often our lives are bogged down because we can’t imagine a better possibility for ourselves. In this sermon series, we’re examining stories of God calling people to think outside the box and live in a world bigger than they imagined was possible.
