“We exist to know Jesus and to make Jesus known.” This is more than just a slogan on our posters – knowing God is the meaning and fullness of life. It’s why we’re alive. Knowing Him is how He satisfies us with abundant life in Jesus. But knowing God isn't just a matter of truth or relational encounter – it’s both, held together. In this series we’ll explore the character and nature of God, along with spiritual practices designed to create space to encounter Him personally. It’s an invitation to all who are thirsty: come and drink.
The Wisdom of God
- Isaiah 55:8-9
Cliff Ursel / November 20, 2022
The prayer is that talking about the wisdom of God will compel us to press into Jesus like never before.
Sabbath as Blessing
- Mark 2:23-3:6
Nathan Harrison / November 13, 2022
The entire Christian life is meant to be a constant flow of God’s grace and love both to us and through us. So when it comes to the practice of Sabbath, it’s no surprise that this is exactly what God has always intended it to be. Reflecting his heart of mercy and love, the Sabbath is not only a day that exists for our good, but also for doing good.
The Love of God
- Romans 8:31-39
Matt Menzel / November 6, 2022
In this sermon we’ll set ourselves up to experience the love of God in greater ways because of the person and work of Jesus.
Sabbath as Resistance
- Deuteronomy 6:10-15
Nathan Harrison / October 30, 2022
Most of us, on some level, realize that we are stuck in a cycle of buying and accumulating. But most of us don’t realize what that is doing to our souls. What if all of it is moving us farther away from God than we think? Thankfully, in embracing a Sabbath rhythm, we find an invitation to resist what the world would have us become, and are able to step into the life God has for us.
The Jealousy of God
- Exodus 34:11-14
Matt Menzel / October 23, 2022
In this sermon we will unpack what it means that God is jealous and what His jealousy means for those who love Him.
Sabbath as Enjoyment
- Exodus 20:8-11
Cliff Ursel / October 16, 2022

The Immanence of God
- Psalm 139: 1-18, 23-24
Matt Menzel / October 9, 2022
In this sermon we’ll look at the incredible nearness of God and the reason for a sense of divine remoteness that so many feel.
Sabbath as Worship
- Exodus 20:8-11;
Nathan Harrison / October 2, 2022
For human beings, called to bear God’s image, the sabbath is a repeated opportunity to reflect that image in our own pattern of work and rest. This gets to the heart of the sabbath as worshipful rather than simply useful—no matter how beneficial it may be. The issue at the core of the Sabbath is What (or who) is worthy of our praise? The answer that the Sabbath always proclaims is, the God of creation and redemption.
The Holiness of God
- Revelation 4:1-11
Matt Menzel / September 25, 2022
In this sermon we’ll try to glimpse the incomprehensible holiness of God.
God's Heart for Our Rest
- LUKE 13:10-17
Matt Menzel / September 18, 2022
In this sermon we’ll see God’s heart for our rest in creation, the fall, redemption in Jesus, and the promise of the restoration of all things.
The Goodness of God
- Exodus 33:12-19, 34:4-8
Matt Menzel / September 11, 2022
In our time together this week we’ll position ourselves to taste and see the goodness of God.
