Join us as we continue our current series, Church In The Wild. This week Pastor Neli helps us to realize we are called to be the church amongst the crisis. God wants us to be amongst those who are hurting. God has called us to be the light in the darkness of society. Are you choosing to worship and praise God no matter the hurt you're going through? Declare today, "Even when it hurts, I’ll praise you, God”
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.- Psalm 23:4 (ESV)

Join us as we continue our current series, Church In The Wild. How much junk have you fed your spirit during the day that you’re no longer hungry for the word of God? This week Pastor Neli helps us to turn down the noise so we can turn towards God. Can you hear the voice of The Lord even when the noise of this life is so loud?
And Zacchaeus stood and said to the Lord, “Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor. And if I have defrauded anyone of anything, I restore it fourfold.”And Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house, since he also is a son of Abraham. For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.” - Luke 19:8-10 (ESV)

Join us as we continue our current series, Church In The Wild. Pastor Neli compares legalism vs licentiousness in regards to our identity in Christ when speaking with the LGBTQ community or any other community group we may have an issue with. Do you hate the sin of others more than you hate your own sin? Do you tend to have awkward conversations with people that hold opposing opinions? Wouldn’t you rather hold steadfast to the truth of God?
Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you. - Ephesians 4:31-32 (ESV)

Join us as we continue our series, Church In The Wild. This week Pastor Neli helps us to put our trust in the unknown, in the God we cannot see. It may feel unknown but don’t hesitate to enter into the life-changing transformation of the Holy Spirit. There is life satisfaction that happens there. God is in the business of restoring you so you can bring restoration to the world.
So she called the name of the Lord who spoke to her, “You are a God of seeing,” for she said, “Truly here I have seen him who looks after me.” Therefore the well was called Beer-lahai-roi; it lies between Kadesh and Bered. And Hagar bore Abram a son, and Abram called the name of his son, whom Hagar bore, Ishmael. Abram was eighty-six years old when Hagar bore Ishmael to Abram. - Genesis 16:13-16 (ESV)

Join us as we continue our Church In The Wild series. This week Mark Dellit speaks to us about reaching and building authentic and genuine relationships with the next generation. What is God’s will for the next generation and are you willing to slow down to build with them where they are? How can you help the next generation walk into their destiny of entering the Kingdom of God?
Then children were brought to him that he might lay his hands on them and pray. The disciples rebuked the people, but Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.”- Matthew 19:13-14 (ESV)

Join us today as we start our new series, Church In The Wild. Pastor Neli refers to our activation by the Holy Spirit to be active as Christians in this age of outrage. If you’re a follower of Christ, you are the church, and as a church are called to meet people by their well with the good news. True worshippers of God will look for the lost but are you willing to journey even if they don't get the fullness of who Jesus is?
Jesus said to her, “Woman, believe me, the hour is coming when neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem will you worship the Father.You worship what you do not know; we worship what we know, for salvation is from the Jews. But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him.God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.” - John 4:21-24 (ESV)

Join us as we continue our series, Into The Horizon. This week Pastor Neli continues with our church value of Family. God builds with people and joins them together in family. The strength of your family should dictate the strength of your ministry. Have you considered yourself a customer or someone who's part of the family?
And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts,praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved. - Acts 2:46-47 (ESV)

Join us as we continue in our Into The Horizon series. Pastor Neli continues to speak on the values of the church with this week touching on the importance of Family. Have you caught the will of God in the role you play in your family? When you are drunk in the spirit you start to have a heart for every nation and generation. If we’re going to see transformations in our family's lives, we’ve got to be filled with the Holy Spirit
Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is. And do not get drunk with wine, for that is debauchery, but be filled with the Spirit,addressing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart,giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,submitting to one another out of reverence for Christ.
- Ephesians 5:15-21 (ESV)

Join us for a special Easter Sunday message. Pastor Neli focuses our attention on the works on the cross. The resurrection is the center of our faith. The resurrected king is seen in the way that we have been resurrected in the way we live in our lifestyles. We are working towards wanting to be like God as a thank you for what He's already done. Find rest knowing what Christ has done rather than working your way towards freedom.
But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.
- 1 Corinthians 15:57-58 (ESV)

Join us as we continue our current series, Into The Horizon. This week Pastor Neli follows on in our discussion about discipleship and refers us to Acts 11 as we learn more about Barnabas and Paul. God has called us out of our comfort zone to “do life” in intercultural communities. As a disciple of God, we should be full of the Holy Spirit, Faithful, and Fruitful.
The report of this came to the ears of the church in Jerusalem, and they sent Barnabas to Antioch. When he came and saw the grace of God, he was glad, and he exhorted them all to remain faithful to the Lord with steadfast purpose, for he was a good man, full of the Holy Spirit and of faith. And a great many people were added to the Lord.
- Acts 11:22-24 (ESV)
