If This, Then That – 1.5.20 – Rob Pilant

By Messages

Sunday, we start up a brand new series called, “If This, Then That,” which will help us set the tone for the new year. We all want to be the best version of ourselves possible, but some things are required for that to happen. If you want to become everything God created you to be this year and for the rest of your life, you need to figure out these foundational steps.

Unmet Expectations- 12.29.19 – Krista Heinen

We are going to cap off our series “Virgin Territory” with a rare glimpse of Mary parenting Jesus during his childhood. While there is little written about Jesus’ adolescence, we know that Mary continued to parent her son as he grew. In Luke 2:41-52, we encounter a story where Mary’s expectations do not align with her reality. Like Mary, we often experience unmet expectations, and we will unpack together how we can face disappointment by leaning into God.

Happy Thanksgiving! Hopefully, you had some good time to reflect on how good God’s been to you. But now, we are full on into the Christmas season, and we are talking about Virgin Territory: Christmas through the eyes of Mary, Momma of Jesus. What must it have been like for her knowing that she was giving birth to the Son of God who would one day give His life for all of mankind? That’s what we are talking about this Christmas!


It Doesn’t Make $ense- 11.17.19 – Rob Pilant

It Doesn’t Make Sense…or does it? Does it make sense to give away what you’ve worked so hard to get? Part of us says “No” and yet another part, especially at this time of year feels really good about giving. Why? Why does being generous feel so good? There’s a very good reason, and I want to share it with you.
