How to Be Positive
Watch the entire devotional series from this past week, as Pastor Jared helps us learn to become and stay positive.
A Fresh Start: For Your Emotions
Our thoughts might be true or false, healthy or destructive, demonic or Holy Spiritual, which means we need to think carefully about our thoughts! The apostle Paul made the same point to his friends in Corinth, urging them to take their thoughts captive and make them obedient to Christ. By that same practice, we put our frantic minds at ease and fix our thoughts on Jesus.
A Fresh Start: For Your Money
When accumulating more and more money becomes the center of our universe, we end up with darkness, worry, and eventual loss. But when we seek God first, satisfying our hearts with the presence and promises of God, money finds its rightful place in our lives. Our loving Father can become our true treasure, freeing us from serving money and allowing us to use it wisely.
A Fresh Start: For Your Body
This message takes us back to the beginning, to physical life as God intended, and reminds us of the Father who gave us life and wants only what is best for his kids. In addition, it reminds us of the “image of God” that we have through Jesus, a spiritual reality that gives even our bodies peace and rest.
A Fresh Start: With Jesus
Jesus said that those who humbly confess their need of God’s grace (instead of self-righteously comparing themselves to others) will be justified and exalted in the eyes of God. Perhaps, then, repentance is the most liberating way to live!
Live Your Life in Jesus
Watch the entire devotional series from this Christmas week, as Pastor Jared helps us start off 2020. Starting a new year can be overwhelming, but in a simple sentence, God grounds us to what is important.

How Do You Live Your Faith?

Get Past Distractions
As we get ready to kick off 2020 with a fresh start, we may get distracted by the world. But Pastor Jared reminds us we already have all that we need.
Simply Christmas: Seek. Speak. Think.
Life slows down after Christmas for us, but not on that first Christmas. The shepherds burst with good news and blurted it out to anyone who would listen. Mary treasured up the truths about her newborn son. People went home glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen. What if we did the same?
No Doubt About Who We Are
If you’re going to be ready for Jesus, you need to know who Jesus is. And you need to know who you are.
