Communion embodies so many powerful messages within our faith. In this service we talk about three important messages that a community can experience every time we come together and take communion.

We also focus on three types of relationships which are Advocates, Associates and Affiliates.
Forgiveness PT. 2

We hope that you will be able to Confront when needed, Obey Jesus' command to forgive and Pardon freely offenses we may carry.
Forgiveness Pt. 1
In this message we talk about the process of forgiveness. This is such an important topic for a church community to learn and to embrace living a life of forgiveness. We hope that if you are struggling with unforgiveness, this message can help you take some important steps to freedom.
In this message we observe the Indignation of Christ. It often makes Christians uncomfortable to think that our gentle Lord can get upset, yet there are multiple times where we see Him filled with righteous anger. We will examine how Christ's indignation provides a glimpse of His love, as He protects what he cares about.
In this message we highlight the incredible love Jesus had for the people around him. He was a friend, family member and leader in his community. Jesus was full of compassion for hurting people from all walks of life. We hope that this message will encourage you to walk in the path that Jesus left for us to follow.
Jesus was fearless because of the confidence He had in the Father's will. We can walk in the same confidence that He had and in doing so make lasting impacts in the culture around us. In this message we see how Jesus broke barriers that made lasting impacts in the world that we live in today.
In this message we look at the amazing connection we have with the father in John 15 as Jesus describes our connection to the vine. Joy is the result of internal peace in our lives. Today, more than ever we can get overwhelmed and discouraged by the circumstances around us but... Jesus said "my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full."
In this message we celebrate the resurrected Christ's encounter with Peter. We look at the gospel through John 3:16-17 and focus on the story of Peter from the book of John chapter 21 that God loves the whole world and yet He still meets us in a personal encounter. Peter experiences three amazing things from Jesus the bring about his redemption and is the beginning of Peter "The Rock" building the church.
In this message we focus on the significance of the palm in the Palm Sunday story. As Jesus enters the eastern gate of Jerusalem, He was welcomed with waving palms from thousands. This story is one that all Christians experience when Jesus came into our lives and we crowned Him as king over us.
In this message we look at the night Peter denied Christ in Mark 14. We can learn so much from this story about the moments we find ourselves in, to either trust God's plan or ours. The good news is that Peter didn't remain in denial, but instead became Peter the Rock.
As we continue Peter's journey of faith, we see from Mark 22-35 that although Peter is strong in his faith, he doesn't see Christ's purpose clearly. Jesus reminds us that His purpose is to glorify God with His sacrifice, and He challenges His disciples and us today by saying, "Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me."
Walk on Water
In this message we talk about keeping your eyes on the faith Jesus calls us to step out in and the amazing truth that He is able to save us when we sink. This week we will look at Matthew 14 when Peter walked on water. We can learn so much about faith from this story.
One of God's most comforting promises is that when we bring our anxiety to Him, He will give us a peace which surpasses all understanding. We see this as the beautiful conclusion to God's work within our lives; that when we walk in His Spirit we will experience His peace, and one day when we are fully united with Him in heaven we will find ultimate peace. Philippians 4:6-7
Christ did not just call pastors to go and make disciples, He called ALL Christians to spread his message to those who do not know Him. We will always seek to build a church of ministers and missionaries. Matthew 28
Ministry of Reconciliation
We strongly believe that the message of the gospel does more than just heavenly salvation, it has the power to bring healing here, on this earth. And we are called to be agents of healing in all areas of our lives. The fruit of this church should not only be measured by people coming to God, but also by the marriages, families, friends, and even communities healed through the power of the Spirit. 2 Corinthians 5:18-19
