RENEW THE CITY: Craft

Pastor Jonathan McIntosh

Sunday, September 18, 2016

Acts 16:11-15

Work was an important but often overlooked way that the earliest Christians transformed their world. Their work was the often unspoken backdrop through which they lived out their faithfulness to Christ. We (modern Christians) have a harder time seeing and pointing out that backdrop because we have, over the years, lost the beauty and significance behind the concept of vocation. In this sermon, we'll hear why our work matters not only to God, but to ourselves and our community.


RENEW THE CITY: Mercy

Pastor Drew Haltom

Sunday, September 11, 2016

Acts 3:1-10

If we want the Gospel to catch fire, if we want people to come to know Jesus, we have to cultivate a culture of mercy. Biblical mercy moves towards the most oppressed, powerless people with love, not running away in judgment. In this sermon, we look to the merciful One, Jesus, who pursued us in our neediness, and did not run away out of inconvenience. 


REIMAGINE CHURCH: Spiritual Depth

Pastor Jonathan McIntosh

Sunday, September 4, 2016

Acts 2:42-47

What does it mean to be spiritual? Some have said that the essence of spiritual depth is how much you know. Others have pinned spirituality to a specific emotional experience. Still others would say spiritual depth is marked by what you are doing in the world. In this sermon, we see that the essence of authentic spirituality is knowing God and how practically you can grow in your knowledge of and love for Him.


Acts 9:1-19

What if you don't have to be alone and anxious of others truly knowing you? What if the worst of you could be known and you could finally find a place to be loved? This is Saul's (the Apostle Paul) story. A terrorist and murderer of the early church, yet someone who finds a place to be known and loved in the community he sought to persecute. Listen in as we explore the significance of "being known" and the power found in a vulnerable community.

REMEMBER JESUS: Hospitality

Pastor Jonathan McIntosh

Sunday, August 21, 2016

Acts 11:1-18
As we look at the arc of the book of Acts, we see an ever-widening circle of inclusion. But none of the first Christians imagined that grace of Jesus would be extended even to the Gentiles. In this sermon, we look at the story of the Apostle Peter, a man named Cornelius, and one crazy dinner party that changed absolutely everything.


REMEMBER JESUS: Story

Pastor Jonathan McIntosh

Sunday, August 14, 2016

Acts 2:32-47

What is church? When you strip away all the cultural edifice and cultural baggage surrounding that word, what is the church for? What should church be about? In this introduction to the series Church Reimagined, we take a close look at the earliest Christian communities and the power and passion behind their world-changing activities. Join us, as we seek to recover our heart as a church and tap into the same reality that shaped the world 2,000 years ago.
