There are a lot of challenges of living in the suburbs, like the busyness of commuting, the trap of consumerism, the lack of community, and the idol of comfort.

As suburbanites, we are consumers who like to buy and consume more and more products, and we have the debt to prove it!

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
