We are ONE GENERATION
October 28, 2018 | Pastor Darren Young Scripture:  Joshua 3:1-4:24  | Theme: This week we focus on our sixth DNA statement: We are One generation … we live as extended family in our generation and we fight for the next generation. God’s story moves across generations and every generation is to entrust the unfolding story of God to the next generation.

We are IN THE DIRT

We are IN THE DIRT

October 21, 2018 | Pastor Darren Young Scripture:  John 9:1-15  | Theme: This week we focus on our fifth DNA statement: We are in the dirt … we practice the way of Jesus in the everyday - in our work, relationships, money and rest. Jesus’ invitation isn’t a call to learn rules or beliefs; but a call to learn his ways and restore his presence to every broken place.

We are AUTHENTIC + SAFE

October 14, 2018 | Pastor Darren Young Scripture:   Luke 7:36-50 (reference to Matthew 11:25-12:21)  | Theme: This week we focus on our fourth DNA statement: We are Authentic + safe … we live vulnerably, giving one another permission to be real. It was in all our her weariness and shame and weakness that a broken woman came to the feet of Jesus; and in that authenticity (and because of that authenticity) she encountered the heart of God and the fullness of the gospel.

WE ARE MERCY + JUSTICE

WE ARE Mercy + Justice

October 7, 2018 | Pastor Darren Young Scripture:   Luke 4:14-21  | Theme: This week we focus on our seventh DNA statement: We are Mercy + justice … we partner with others in protecting the powerless and caring for the hurting. When Jesus began his ministry, his first ‘sermon’ focused on his commitment to bring mercy + freedom to the poor, captives, disabled and oppressed. Jesus came for those in need. So do we.

WE ARE TRUE COMMUNITY

WE ARE True Community

September 23, 2018 | Pastor Matt Myers

Scripture:   Genesis 2:7-9, John 13, Acts 2 | Theme: This week we take a look at our second DNA statement: We are True Community… we desire everyone known and needed, resisting the pull of mere attending. From the outset of the Bible, humanity hears an invitation to create life-giving communities with God. The question is, have we settled for merely attending when God actually invites us to be culture makers. In reality, it seems we are an integral part of the plan.

WE ARE Gospel - Centred

WE ARE Gospel - Centred

September 16, 2018 | Pastor Darren Young

Scripture:   Matthew 14:22-33 | Theme: This week we launch into the first of our ten DNA Statements. We begin with: We are Gospel-centred … we cling to Jesus and every word of God’s story, daily learning to unchoose alternatives. When Jesus came, he came as the one who heals and forgives, but also as the one who controls nature and humbles demons; it is because of the totality of who Jesus is, that we cling to him.

Don't Stop Now: Don’t Stop Short

Don't Stop Now: Don’t Stop Short

September 2, 2018 | Pastor Darren Young

Scripture:   Hebrews 11:32-40 | Theme: God regularly beckons us to keep moving forward in faith. A faith that sustains us, however, is one that trusts in who God is, not one that trusts in our agenda for God.  A faith that sustains us through the struggles, is one that knows that God is preparing something better for us. So don’t stop now!
