True, authentic love builds bridges across the gaps of our independence.
Join us as we start our new series The Bridge.
When the world says strength is about how much you can amass and how to rise up, the Bible paints a picture of true strength in a vulnerable place of surrender. Looking at 1 Samuel 1, surrender is seen not as a sign of weakness but a trust and reliance of the greatness of God.
He has given us gifts to be a blessing to others. We are generous when we give - stuff, time, and praise. We are conduits through which God’s Grace flows, and the more we submit to him the greater a gift we can be.

This week pastor Brandon speaks on growth.
Listen in as we start our new series ReBrand.
In the the upcoming weeks we will hear from Pastor Brandon speak on Grace, Growth and Gifts.
Jesus did more for us on the cross than we could have ever asked for or imagined, SO much more than we ever deserve. His grace is always greater than our sin.
“It doesn’t matter what the instruction is, it matters where it comes from.”
Many of us doubt God because we think he knows better than us...when we realize ALL POWER belongs to Him it changes how we live. No matter what the storm brings, he can provide peace in our hearts and hope for eternity with Him.
Without God in the place he’s supposed to be we become spiritually dead people.

“Jesus is not our genie, he is our Savior. He came not to grant your wishes, but to wash away your sin.”

If you come to him with open hands and lay your cares at his feet, we can walk in freedom and joy for what he has already done, and the Hope eternity with Him.
If you live life on the premise that you “got this”, you will always fall short... and when we fall it’s a reminder of how much we need Jesus Christ. His Grace and Mercy, his salvation is our only hope.
He is the only source of energy that will never run dry.
Take a close look with us at Nehemiah chapter 9 as we look closely at how God reveals His character to us. We will see that God’s character draws us to repentance. Open up your bibles and examine new ways to see God’s goodness.
God’s truth is unchanging in and ever-changing world. ⠀
We seek his truth by:⠀
•reading His word, our instruction manual ⠀
•clarifying our understanding and how it applies to our life ⠀
•celebrating God’s goodness and love⠀
We strive to understand the deep truths around the simple truths of sin, repentance, and salvation. ⠀
The joy of the Lord is our strength.⠀
You are never too broken to engage with our loving Father, you simply must come with an open heart. ⠀
The fear of God must be central to how we handle and interpret our lives.
Fear of God gives:⠀
•a voice to the weak⠀
•eyes for justice ⠀
•a picture of restoration ⠀
It gives us an understanding of his Grace, the awareness that true justice does not exist without God, and that He gives value where the world sees none. ⠀
We are His people and have been created in his image. Our mission is to be a light, a reflection of His glory...to let his Grace flow through us, not just to us. ⠀
How do we relate to God in the face of the opposition we experience in life? As we continue to look at the book of Nehemiah this week we see a picture of faith that blends trust in God’s saving power with response and confident action to follow after what God has called the people to do. Faith emboldens us to face the challenges we encounter and humbles us to remember the victory belongs to God.
Purpose Understood: allows us to serve where we are, no matter where we come from. When we understand God has a purpose that’s bigger than us, we can trust that even the things that seem insignificant, can be made beautiful and glorious through His Grace.
Listen in as Pastor Brandon digs deeper into Nehemiah chapter 2.
“No matter what you are going through, there is Grace in the process...nothing of this world can touch your identity in Christ. You are safe there.”
