Prayer is for life. Life is for prayer. In this new series we invite you to take a fresh look at prayer, and at your life. Prayer is not simply about saying things to God. Rather, prayer is a life that is directed towards God. Because all of us can direct our attention more and more to God, all of us can grow as people of prayer. Yes, even you!
Have you ever experienced the power in the name of Jesus? This Advent, we are exploring the five names the prophet Isaiah provides us for who the coming Messiah will be: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace, Immanuel. Each of these names offers us hope for where we hurt most. Each of these names reveals more of who Jesus is and how we can relate to him. Each of these names assures us that our God is a God we can call upon and count on. We invite you to discover the beauty and the power in the name that is above every name this month.
Jesus once said, “It is more blessed to give than to receive.” When Jesus said this, he wasn’t constructing a hypothesis to be tested, he was simply stating what is true of reality. The degree to which we cultivate generous spirits is the degree to which we will be able to live in rhythm with how God fashioned the world. As we live in the rhythm of God, we will experience greater freedom, and joy, and peace than ever before. Join us this month as we learn to practice the way of Jesus by becoming more generous people.
This question Jesus poses to his disciples is the same question he asks each of us. It is arguably the single most significant question any of us may ever answer. It not only impacts our eternal future, but how we live every moment of every day. We invite you to join us at Crossway this fall as we explore who Jesus is as we study the Gospel of Mark together. Come and discover the Jesus you may never have known before.
What you do Monday through Saturday—and not just Sunday—matters immensely to God. Join us this week as we discover how our Sunday faith connects to our Monday work.
The book of Jonah is one of the Bible's most well-known, yet most misunderstood stories. What's the bigger message behind a man being swallowed by a whale? In this four week series, we'll discover - like Jonah does - some of the uncomfortable truths about ourselves that we'd rather ignore. Yet we'll also learn to trust God even when his commands don't seem to make any sense. Join us as we follow Jonah's journey into deep, deep mercy of God.
In our superficial world, how can we be a church deep in faith? Our sermon series, "Deepen" explores, not only what it looks like for us to have deeper faith individually, but what it looks like to be a church that has a deeper presence in our shallow world. Each message examines one of six ways the Christian church has lived out the mission of God, helping people experience the life and love of Christ in a new, life-giving way.
What does it really mean to “follow” Jesus? To really be with him, become like him and do what he did? Is it even possible in today’s world to live life in community around the teachings of Jesus? How do we move our faith from a thought to a lifestyle? This series examines how Practicing the Way of Jesus transforms us and brings us true freedom and peace.
Are we numb? As a society, are we transfixed by phones, tablets and computer screens? As Christians, are we insensitive to the amazing things of God all around us? And, as a result, are we missing our true calling as followers of Jesus?
We’re taking some time to explore with fresh eyes what Jesus saw, experienced and taught On The Road through the Gospel of Luke. He “sets His face to go to Jerusalem” (Luke 9:51) on what will be his final journey in that city. He will meet opposition, betrayal, trial, death and, ultimately, resurrection. As we travel On The Road with Him toward Easter, we will rediscover Jesus and ourselves in a fuller, truer and richer way. Don’t miss the journey!
There are many issues dividing people in our nation today, such as race and immigration. It is easy for us to jump on the bandwagon of our preferred political party. But as followers of Jesus, this is not where we should begin. God wants us to begin with His Word, and His heart for all people. This does not mean we will agree on the solutions to the challenges these issues present. But no matter where we land, we are to reflect God’s heart for every person.
