We all have our favorite Christmas movies, the ones we watch year after year. There are some of these movies that remind us of what Christmas is all about – the timeless story of hope, peace, joy and love – the birth of a child. Join us this holiday season as we share the joy of the season each week with inspiring music, fun movies and the simple story that changed the world and transforms our lives.

Mrs. Gump compared life to a box of chocolates. Scot McKnight, in his book A Fellowship of Differents compares the church to a salad. Not a salad made up of iceberg lettuce and doused with dressing, but a colorful salad filled with different tastes, all mixed together with the olive oil accentuating the taste of each.
In this series, we will explore what it means to be church and how the Christian life is meant to be lived out in community. McKnight argues that "the church is God’s world-changing social experiment of bringing unlikes and differents to the table to share life with one another as a new kind of family. When this happens, we show the world what love, justice, peace, reconciliation, and life together are designed by God to be. The church is God’s show and tell for the world to see how God wants us to live as a family" (p. 20)

Due to chronic disobedience, the people of Judah had been exiled to lands far away. They had forgotten God and become unfaithful. Yet God had not forgotten them. The people were allowed to pick up the broken pieces of their lives and start again, this time in obedience. How can you learn to lean into God's promises through obedience?

Ever wondered why people around us aren’t interested in God? Maybe we’ve never given them a reason to be. However, if we’re real with people they will be real with us. We can make Jesus relevant and real in the lives of others, not by arguing them into the kingdom, but by showing them what a Christ-follower looks like— someone who engages with the community, who thoughtfully inquires about sensitive, ultimate issues, and who encourages others by our loving presence.
There is an art to loving your neighbor as yourself.
