Practicing Presence

This Sunday we’ll be looking at Psalm 46 as we talk about Practicing Presence – learning how to live in the moment, how to be fully present in every situation.

MARK: Removing Obstacles

This week in our passage, Jesus is about as passionate as you will find Him in all of the New Testament. And again, children are at the core of His heart and thoughts.

MARK: Own It

This Sunday we’ll be talking about what it means to own our faith. In our passage, Christ asks His disciples who people say that He is. Then, He makes the question much more personal, “Who do you say that I am?” The question for us, is how do we establish and nurture our faith in […]
