A New Winemaker

John 2:1-12

Everybody loves a good wedding party.  From the toasts, to the dances to the cutting of the cake, it is a celebration.  But when Jesus attends your wedding, the party can go to another level.  This week we will look at the very first miracle performed by Jesus and discover there is more to the story than just new wine.  There is A NEW WINE MAKER!

Who Are These Guys?

Who Are These Guys?

Matthew 4:18-22 / Mark 1:16-20 / John 1:35-51
What do you get when you grab a few different people from different backgrounds and different vocations? If we asked Jesus, he might tell us it is the best group of people to train up and carry out the Father’s mission! Join us this Sunday as we discover that the church of today is not too different than the small church Jesus started with when He asked a few ordinary guys to simply “Follow him.”

Date With The Devil

Date With The Devil

Luke 4:1-13 / Matthew 4:1-11 / Mark 1:12-13

Everyone who has dated for any stretch of time can tell you it will eventually happen. It could be that you have nothing in common or there is absolutely zero chemistry.  Maybe the activity or the meal was far from your liking.  Most of us have experienced the date from HELL!   But what if your date was literally… from Hell?  Jesus knows what this experience is like as he goes toe to toe with the devil.  What can we learn from this encounter?  Because eventually, we all will have our moments in the ring with Satan himself.

The Baptism of Jesus

Matthew 3:13-17 / Mark 1:9-11 / Luke 3:21-22 / John 1:29-34

Whether it is waving the white flag, throwing your hands up, or throwing in the towel, we are all aware of the gesture and the act of surrender.  As Christians, God gives us another way in which we surrender.  Join us this Sunday as we follow Jesus to the river and learn our first act of surrender to the Father.

Not It!

Not It!

Mark 1, Luke 3, John 1

We have all heard it, thought it or said it when asked by the coach, teacher or maybe even mom. Whatever the drill, game or chore, if it’s not something we want to do, we declare with enthusiasm… NOT IT!  But most of the time we want to be it. We want to have they eyes of everyone locked on us.  But what happens when church ministry and Christianity is more about us and less about Christ? Join us this Sunday as we learn from a man who lived his life with a “Not it” mentality but gladly pointed us towards the one who was and is…IT.

There's A Lot To Do

There's A Lot To Do

There is a lot to do! Before any big event, trip, task, or project, a great deal of preparation takes place ahead of time. Plot the destination, plan the activities, invite the friends, book the flights, pack the bags, and pray for the best! The foundation of Jesus’ ministry was no different – there was a lot to be done. Before He ever healed a person or uttered a sermon, before He walked on water and before He calmed the raging seas, Jesus laid some very important groundwork. Join us as we examine what Jesus did first to prepare the world for what He had in store.

What We Know The Least, May Tell Us The Most

What We Know The Least, May Tell Us The Most

Very little is mentioned in the gospels when it comes to the boyhood and adolescent years of Jesus.  But what we do know packs quite the punch.  What can we learn from the childhood of Jesus and how can we apply what He found important at a young age to our lives today, regardless of how old we are now.

Christmas In July

It was unlike any Christmas we have ever experienced. It was unlike any delivery room ever experienced.  Those things we know for sure, but what about the things we don’t know?  Journey back with us as we familiarize ourselves with the sights, smells, and sounds of the very first Christmas.

Two Divine Births (Part 2)

The second divine birth is the one we know well. But what can we learn through the months and weeks leading up to the arrival of the Christ child?  Join us this Sunday at Revive as we look deeper and experience the humanity and tension that must have been felt by those closest to the situation.

Two Divine Births (Part 1)

Who wrote these books?  Why are they similar and yet so different?  This week we will dive into the harmony of the Gospels and discover who wrote them and from what perspective they had while writing.  We will also investigate the first of two divine births outlined in the New Testament.  What role would it play and how was it instrumental in the coming of the Messiah? Join us, for week 2 of Life of Christ.

Is Jesus Enough?

Is Jesus Enough?

Have you ever stared at the dinner menu and played the game of “will it be enough?” in your head?  Should I order an appetizer or maybe add a soup to my meal?  We live in a culture that screams “not enough!”  And then we encounter Jesus and he offers himself and says “I am all you need.”  But is he?  IS JESUS ENOUGH for your life?  Join us at Revive this Sunday as we learn what can happen when there is only one item on the menu.

More Than Rules

Comment

More Than Rules

The word “rules” probably brings back memories that you had as a kid.  When we went to school, we had rules, when we went home, we had rules and when we went to church, you guessed it, even more rules!  Unfortunately, for many of us this is how we were raised in Christianity.  That if you follow the rules, you can be a Christian.  This Sunday at Revive, we will discover there is more than rules… when it comes to a relationship with Jesus.

The Comfortable Cross

The Comfortable Cross

When choosing things in life, we usually always go the route of comfort.  It’s why we try on a pair of shoes or lay on the mattress before we buy them.  We want to make sure everything is just right, that we don’t feel any pain or discomfort when we walk and sleep.  But what happens when our desire for comfort, enters our pursuit of following Jesus. Join us this week as we dig deeper into the comfort level of the most recognizable symbols in all the world… the cross of Christ.

Choosing Intimacy

Choosing Intimacy

Most of us have the tendency when we have met people in this life, we say “we know them.”  Met him or her once 20 years ago… but I know them.  But how well can you really know someone you have only met once?  Jesus desires a relationship that is beyond a random encounter in your every day life.  Join us this Sunday as we learn what it looks like to CHOOSE INTIMACY.

An Open Invitation

Have you ever seen one of those car dealership commercials that says, “Anyone can buy a car here!” But then you look at the fine print at the bottom of the screen and see that “anyone” really means the people who pass their credit check?  So, when Jesus invites “anyone” in Luke chapter 9… does he really mean what he says?  Or is this just another disappointment after reading the fine print? Join us this Sunday at Revive as we discover what the OPEN INVITATION means when it comes to following after Christ.

Not A Fan

The word fan is defined as “an enthusiastic admirer.” We are all fans of things in life, from our favorite sports teams to our favorite athletes.  We will watch the games, buy the jerseys, cheer them on when they are winning, and look forward to next year if they are losing.  We all understand what it looks like to be a fan.  But is that what Jesus wanted from us when it comes to our relationship with him? This series will challenge us to think beyond “enthusiastic admirers” of God and prayerfully move us towards becoming fully devoted followers of Christ.

Tell Your Story

Tell Your Story

No one has a story just like you. No one can tell your story quite like you!  Your story is just that… Your. Story.  When you allow God to fully enter into your story, it becomes a beautiful narrative of grace, repentance, forgiveness, redemption, and genuine love.  If you want to rescue those God has placed in your path, understand that your story in Christ is an important key to unlocking someone else’s chains and bondage. You need to be ready to TELL YOUR STORY.

Open Doors... Closed Doors

Every Christ follower is called to make a difference.  To be a light in a dark world and to share the love of Christ with those around us.  But not everyone else is ready to open their ears to the message on your heart.  Join us this Sunday as we learn about taking steps forward in sharing our faith, discerning when to wait, and discovering when it’s okay to walk away.
