Marketing theory states that people are driven to use money out of fear, out of guilt, out of greed and out of the need for approval. Advertisers want us to fear that we are not enough, we don’t have enough to be accepted, loved and valued.
But God sent his son Jesus with the message for all of us thousands of years ago with the cross, saying “You are enough!”
In this teaching series we are going to look at how we use our money, as a way to help reveal to us from where we truly get our worth, and identity.
When we know our identity and worth comes from God, we are able to say, “I have enough.” We are able to be content with what we have and to use our money to be generous with others.
Join us this Sunday at 11 a.m. as we explore the ways we use money to pursue the feeling that “We are enough”…to be loved, accepted, happy, safe, protected. Hope to see you there!
King David is one of the lead characters in entire Bible. As we read through his story, we follow his journey through great heights of victories, the lows of running for his life, being crowned as king, his struggles with the seduction of power, and later his repentance and humility before God. But it is not just his choices that make him a powerful model of a godly leader, but also his example of emotional health.
Throughout the ups and downs of his life we see a man who is aware of the emotions going on inside of him and models for us sharing those emotions with God in his songs and poems recorded in the book of Psalms.
During this teaching series we will look at both the events in his life and choices he makes, along with the honest outpouring of emotionally honesty he displays to God.
Join us Sundays at 11 a.m. for a journey into more honesty with ourselves – and with God.

What makes a good story, and why do we love them so much? Do we love stories for the drama and the characters? Or is it about letting ourselves get sucked into the imaginary place the author creates?
A good story allows us to enter into a new world in which we are changed and challenged by seeing life in a new way. That is the way Jesus told stories. These imaginative stories are known as Jesus’ parables.
During this series we will look at some of the parables Jesus told, with the hope that each of us will be challenged to ask more questions, be reminded of the truth of the Good News, and be provoked, refined, confronted, and hopefully – changed.
We hope you can join us as we go on this journey together, and hear from God in a fresh way.
It all starts this Sunday at 11 a.m. 4862 Broadway (1st floor, cafeteria).
See you there!
