What happens beyond the grave?
We all have questions when it comes to faith. Maybe you believe in God or maybe you're not convinced. For some of us, it's hard to understand how a God of love could allow such evil in this world. Or maybe the Bible just seems too good to be true. But at some point, you have to move from questions to answers. We invite you to join us as we talk honestly about some of the most challenging questions in the faith. Join us for week one of "Unconvinced" with Pastor Bryan Cox.
Join us for a discussion as we wrap up the series "Love, Dates, and Heartbreaks".
We all have hopes and dreams, but what are we supposed to do when our hearts are broken and our dreams can’t come true? It’s tempting to take matters into our own hands, but is there a better way? Check out week 6 of "Love, Dates, & Heartbreaks" as Pastor Eddie closes out this awesome series.
Many times, we learn from our mistakes in the areas that matter least, but we repeat our mistakes in the areas that matter most. So how can we ensure that the next time won’t be like the last time? Instead of being a conformer, it’s time to be a transformer. Check out week five of "Love, Dates, & Heartbreaks" with Pastor Eddie.
Can you have your cake and eat it too? In relationships, love and desire are like icing on the cake, but the cake itself is the real essence of the relationship. Join us for week four of "Love, Dates, & Heartbreaks" as we unwrap and unmask relationships with Pastor Eddie Cox.
If becoming the right kind of person is key to a great relationship, how do you do that? Is there something you can do to prepare? Does it just happen?

Join us for a roundtable discussion about week one of the series "Love Dates & Heartbreaks".
We all want to be in a great relationship. But great relationships don't automatically happen because we found the right person or because we made a promise. They happen when we strive to become the person we're looking for. Join us for week one of "Love, Dates, & Heartbreaks" with Pastor Bryan Cox.

Our series "Me & My Big Mouth" has been incredible. Some of our Pastors sit down to recap the series and the topics that we covered.
This week we close out the series "Me & My Big Mouth" with Pastor Craig Henson.
Our big mouths can be destructive, but they also have the power to build others up. What we say can impact the quality, and even the direction, of the lives of the people around us. How can we use this power for good? Join us for week three of "Me & My Big Mouth" with Pastor Eddie Cox!
Like a small spark that has the potential to scorch an entire green forest, our tongues are untamable, with the power to control our whole bodies. We have a tool that can be used to build up those around us or tear them down in just a few words. What do we do with that kind of power? We can’t lock it away. But we can, by God’s grace, learn to control it. Check out week two of "Me & My Big Mouth" with Pastor Eddie Cox.
Join us for a discussion as some of our staff talks through topics from week one of the series "Me & My Big Mouth".
We all know what it’s like to be hurt by someone who just couldn’t listen long enough to understand us. Maybe in their attempt to be right, they damaged a relationship that could have been saved with a little patience and curiosity. You’ve probably been on the other side of that coin too. Taking the verbal offense may have won the argument, but you lost relationally. What if we didn’t settle for being right, but tried to make things right instead? The longer we listen, the more we learn, and the better chance we have of protecting ourselves from our own big mouths. Check out week one of "Me & My Big Mouth" with Pastor Eddie Cox.
Have you been mad at God or confused by things happening in your life? Have you found yourself wanting to give up? Checking out this message by Next Steps Pastor, Craig Henson, about continuing the race called life.
It's easy to focus on other people's lives and what you don't have... but it's far better to weed and feed our own lives. True contentment is found by weeding some things out of our life and feeding our souls on the Bible. Those who seek the Lord lack no good thing. Check out week three of "The Grass Is Always Greener" with Student Pastor, Chasen Callahan.
Pastor Eddie continues "The Grass Is Always Greener" series by talking about our consumer culture. He asked this question. Will more of "this" or "that" make my life more than it is or better than it is? We are born with a consumer mentality, always wanting more, and a tendency to share less. Check out week two of "The Grass Is Always Greener."
Join the discussion as some of our staff dives into topics from week one of "The Grass Is Always Greener".
The grass is always greener on the other side. It may be an old cliché, but it lurks in every one of us. It’s that thing we don’t currently have that we think will give us what we want most. It’s an insatiable appetite for more. It never leads to joy. It robs us of life. So, what do we do with our longing for the greener grass? Check out week one with Kid Pastor, Casey Callahan.
We all have a tendency to judge others based on what we think they deserve. Maybe you’ve tried to do things the right way, but those who had no regard for the right way seemed to be rewarded. The truth is, when we overestimate our own righteousness and underestimate the grace we’ve been given, we can’t help but judge others. In order to discover true peace, we need to shift our focus from others to ourselves and rest in the relationship we have with the Father. Pastor Eddie wraps up "What God is Really Like" in today's message.
We all have a tendency to run—run from problems, run from conflict, and even run from God. Without a proper view of the Father, we will always be tempted to run away from home. When we miss the Father’s heart we always end up away from home. When we see the Father for who He really is, there is no reason to not move toward him.
When you hear the term “heavenly Father,” what feelings bubble up? In one story, Jesus gives us a perfect picture of who our heavenly Father truly is. Pastor Bryan Cox kicks off week one of "What God is Really Like."
