New Sermon Series: Scattered

September 17th - October 22nd

After Stephen’s murder, the early church was scattered into the ancient world where they continued to preach the Gospel of the Kingdom and plant churches. From here on out the church would have a stronghold in Jerusalem but be missional as it sought the far reaches of the known world. Persecution continued, but it did not have the desired effect. The more they tried to cease this movement, the further it would reach.

Sunday, September 17th


When threatened with death, the early church scattered into the known world carrying with them their identity in Christ, given by Him before His ascension. They were to be His witnesses. We are still called to be His Witnesses to the world that we are scattered out into. What does that mean? How do we bear witness about what we’ve seen and heard?

Daily Prayers, Digging Deeper Guide and coordinating Life Group Curriculum are available each week on Sunday to further explore this Sermon Series. You can find those resources (for this week and ALL previous weeks) HERE or at the Welcome Center on Sunday.

Adventure:Kids News

This Sunday in Adventure:Kids, the kids continue to learn what Jesus taught while he was on earth. By reading Matthew 6 the kids will learn about behavior.


Key Passage: "Yours, Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the splendor, for everything in heaven and earth is yours. Yours, Lord, is the kingdom; you are exalted over all." 1 Chronicles 29:11

We can't wait to see you this Sunday!

This section is a weekly reminder that God is Good!

He is good to us every single day & we will praise His name!

Shared from Sam: This week starts a new sermon series, which means a new set of graphics and posters and stage design modifications for me to work on. I was spurred this week to share some about my process because this is honestly one of my favorite parts of my job. When I approach any graphic creation, it's not just to get info across and catch your eye and make something that looks good (I mean, I do hope it is all those things), but to me it is more than that. It's a way God helps me meditate on His word as I think through the heart of the upcoming sermon series or event. It's a way I can share how Jesus draws me near in images and color and the process of creation that immediately turn my eyes to Him. It's how an image like the one I used for this Scattered series reminds me of how God plants us sometimes in unlikely places but grows us beautifully anyway. There's layers of story and meaning to all of my graphics... ask me about it sometime because inevitably I'll share how God is so very, very Good in the process. :)

This space in the newsletter is a small way we continue to celebrate the goodness of God all year long, and practice being aware of His presence in our lives. So, if you have stories of God's goodness big or small, hit reply to this email and send them our way. We would love to hear them, pray in praise over them and talk to you about sharing them.

To spur your thoughts to God's goodness start by asking yourself these questions:

What Good have you witnessed recently?

What Good has God brought into your life?

What Good has God prompted you to do for one another?

God is Good!!
