In his book Death By Suburb, David L. Goetz says, "The living patterns of the good life affect me more than I know.” How does the good life in the suburbs affect us?

Suburban Soul: Part 1 Pursuing the Promised Land: Genesis 28:10-19
Sunday, February 11, 2018 :: Brian Lightsey

People move to and live in the suburbs with the hopes of the perfect life: prosperity, beauty, tranquility, community, and safety. Yet suburban living is often hectic and frazzled. It tends to be isolating and exhausting. Is the pursuit of the perfect life killing our souls? Is it possible to truly experience God in suburbia? 

This Sunday, February 11th, we begin a new sermon series called Suburban Soul that will explore how to live a bold, authentic, and vibrant spiritual life right here in the suburbs.

No Room at the Inn Luke 2:1-7, Romans 8:18-21, and Ephesians 3:1-10
Sunday, February 4, 2018 :: Chad Wright

In our day-to-day lives it’s easy to miss out on what God is doing around us. Not only are we missing what he is doing, we’re missing his invitation to join in.

Today we explore how to recognize what God is doing and take part in the story!

48:22
Live a Bold Life: Part 4 Multiply Life: John 13-17 and Matthew 28:16-20

How are you spending your life?

William James said, “The great use of a life is to spend it for something that will outlast it.” 

This Sunday, January 28th, we conclude our sermon series, Live a BOLD LIFE, and talk about leaving a lasting legacy.

Sunday, January 21, 2018 :: Brian Lightsey

Someone once said that “Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath.” 

We can live a BOLD life like this! We have been learning on Sundays how to create this kind of life. This week's message is very important as we take a critical step in the Life Path. This can change you and our church. BOLD LIFE!

Live a Bold Life: Part 2 Connect to Life: Matthew 4:17-23
Sunday, January 14, 2018 :: Brian Lightsey

Peter Drucker once said, “The best way to predict the future is to create it.” All of the future does not have to be uncertain. God gave us a path to follow to create a BOLD LIFE! 

This Sunday we continue our series, Live a BOLD LIFE, as we talk about the next step toward a BOLD LIFE! 

48:41
Live a Bold Life: Part 1 Experience Life: John 1:35-42
Sunday, January 7, 2018 :: Brian Lightsey

How often have you felt that you were made for more? You know that feeling that there is something else or something better than merely existing.

Too often our lives are missing something. We are just not sure what.

Could there be a next step or new level in our lives that most of us don't even know of? It's actually right in front of you. And it's available to you.

This sermon series, Live a BOLD LIFE, will look at what Jesus himself said about experiencing a full and satisfying life of adventure.

Disaster Relief Shepherd Training
The DRS is one of the most important disaster relief roles a volunteer can play within their church in times of disaster.  The job of DRS is to walk alongside a family that has potentially lost everything and needs a ‘Good Samaritan’ to be there for them through the process of recovery until their feet are back on the ground.  This training will equip you with the skills, knowledge and plan to take care and provide extended assistance that cannot be given by the governments or international relief agencies. Contact: Kristen Adams (ADRN@yourlifechurch.org) or use KEYWORD: DRS on your Connection Card. Location: Worship Center. Length: 1 Session
