Healthy Priorities
In our culture we can get in to the habit of just going to church. God does not want us to settle for just going to church though; He wants us to BE the church. There is a significant difference between the two. Our lives and communities are transformed not by going to a church building but by living out the teachings of Scripture and BEING the church. We cannot hope to be the church if our priorities are unhealthy. Listen in as we are reminded of the reasons the church needs to have healthy priorities in what they do.

    Continuously Celebrating Christ
    In our culture we can get in to the habit of just going to church. God doesn't want us to settle for just going to church though; He wants us to BE the church. There is a significant difference between the two. Our lives and communities are transformed not by going to a church building but by living out the teachings of Scripture and BEING the church. In being the church one of the first things to remember is that we are called to always celebrate what God has accomplished in and through Christ. Because of Christ we always have a reason to continuously celebrate!

    Week 9: Putting Unity Back in the Community
    Series: Identity
    When it comes to the formation of identity the community is essential. It has the power to shape a person's identity positively or negatively. The church should be the most life-transforming community around. This week we will take a look at some traits the church community is to "put on" from the letter to the Colossian church. As we put the unity back into community through our actions, the body is strengthened and lives are transformed through Christ. Listen in as we identify the power of community for a Christ-follower's identity.
