Renew Kids: Sunday, April 17th, 2016 (Learning Together)

In the Challenge Class we really encourage the kids to ask questions and think about how the Scripture is alive for them today. We would really like encourage the parents to continue to model this at home with open ended questions about the scripture we are studying. The goal of the Challenge Class is for the kids to be able to read and study the bible themselves with the help of their parents and teachers as they grow in Christ.

The Shepherding Weight of Leading People (1st Corinthians 16 & Jeremiah 23)

4/10/16. Week 27 of Beautiful Messy Church. How is shepherding both beautiful and messy? And how does the Chief Shepherd lead us well — beautifully — while leading us out of our messes? What is our role as we seek to shepherd one another well as we all follow Him together.

Our own Trevor Hanna contemplates the shepherding weight of leading people. This is beautiful messy shepherding.

Beautiful Messy Transformation: Living the Death Life (1st Corinthians 15 & Romans 6)

4/3/16. Week 26 of Beautiful Messy Church. We’re all looking for the “secret” finding the good life. The Apostle Paul tells us the secret to the best life is to die; to die to self, and bury our lives with Christ. Since He died for us, and as we die with Him, we find newness of life, and the transformation our hearts have been desperately longing for all along. Since Christ has risen, all things can become new.

The Resurrection of Jesus: Futility, Truth & Living Hope (1st Corinthians 15 & John 20)

3/27/16. Week 25 of Beautiful Messy Church. We gathered on Resurrection Sunday to consider the weight and worth of King Jesus, who rose again from the dead! Unless He has risen, we are mired in futility, and through the truth born in history, we have a living hope in Him. We finished our time together with Elisha Catts sharing a story or renewal and words about the joy of surrendering to God.
