Speak for Yourself

What’s your story? Sometimes talking about God can feel too complex or technical, but a major part of spiritual conversations is sharing your own story. This week we read Psalm 107 and reflect on celebrating our various faith stories together.

Do you ever struggle to talk about God and your spirituality? Most Americans do, and even most Christians do too. You’re not alone if you find yourself wishing you had more meaningful conversations in your daily life. In our series, “Now You’re Talking,” we will explore how to have spiritual conversations. Join us this series not only by being present, but also by having spiritual conversations throughout your week.

I Didn’t Expect to Celebrate My Family Secrets

In Matthew's first chapter of the gospel, he shares the family story of Jesus. It’s a long family story with highs and lows. While we often want to hide our family secrets, Matthew unveils them before we even meet Jesus. Join us for our second week of our series, An Unexpected Christmas!
