RETURN TO ME

Description

In this podcast we discuss the invitation of God all throughout Scripture to return to Him. Whether it is returning from sin, wondering, straying, or simply returning from the distractions of everyday life around us, there is freedom and life breathed into us in the return.  That freedom translates directly into those we do life with and shepherd.  Jeremiah 24:7, Joel 2:12, Psalm 51, Zechariah 1:3

FAITHFUL TO ONE

Description

In this podcast we discuss a general weariness that is happening in many believers in this season of uncertainty and instability.  We will address what it looks like to be faithful to One, in spite of all the distractions and noise around us, causing feelings of “I am over it” and/or “I feel myself drifting”.  Focusing us back to our invitation to living in and leading from the Spirit of God within us.  Galatians 1:10, Proverbs 9:10, and Isaiah 55:8-9 will be our guides.

REMAIN IN ME

Dan Sartor leads us beautifully in what Jesus famously teaches his disciples in John 15, right before their lives are turned upside down by His impending death.  Growing in this way of life is essential to transformation both individually and in our groups.  John 15 & John 17 are our guides.

OUR IDENTITY IN CHRIST

Description

Tony and Dana Dodd help lead a beautiful discussion on what it looks like to remain in who we already are in Christ, and learning to lead and love from that posture.

MATURITY & MUTUALITY

Description

At our Canvas Leader Equipping Event, Craig shared our vision as a church for equipping our Faith Family through the various leadership roles within the church.  Ephesians 4:11-16 makes it clear that we are to equip towards maturity in Christ, so that “the body builds itself up in love”.  We grow best when there is mutuality in relationship, each desiring to grow closer to the image and character of Jesus, until we all “attain to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ”.
