Serve Comfort Food

Peter’s story, as told in the books of John and Luke, comes full circle when Jesus invites him and several other disciples to breakfast after His resurrection. Jesus’ trio of questions may seem strange to most, but to Peter, they provide healing and restoration. God doesn’t just want to forgive our failures. He wants us to experience His love and fullness in restored relationship with Him.

Disciple Over Dinner

What would happen if two disciples had dinner with Jesus and didn’t even recognize Him? We find out in Luke 24, giving us insight into how to respond to life’s challenges when it feels like God’s not present. Hint: He’s always present.

The Best for Last

In his final hours, Jesus shares a Passover meal with his disciples. But unlike Passovers they have celebrated before, Jesus begins to reshape this meal and point the symbols of this meal to himself and his impending crucifixion. And as he sets a model for us today, Jesus shows that he invites all to share this meal at his table.

Invite Yourself Over

What happens when Jesus sees you and invites himself over to your house? It changes your life forever. Join Steve Rogers as he retells the familiar story of Zacchaeus and how his life changed from greedy tax collector to generous follower of Jesus.

Wait to Be Seated

How will we respond to Jesus’ call to compassion over creed? Pastor Brent explores the parables and story of healing that takes place in Luke. In this passage, we see how Jesus uses another dinner party to teach the Pharisees what the Kingdom of God should look like.

Wash What Matters

In a tense dinner party with the Pharisees and Teachers of the Law, Jesus reveals what really matters in His Kingdom: compassion, humility, and heart. Pastor Amy explores Luke 11, encouraging us to live with integrity internally and externally.

Smell the Roses

The story of Mary and Martha in Luke 10:38-42 reminds us to pause, surrender, and engage with Jesus even when we’re worried and distracted. Ultimately, Jesus cares more about who we are than what we produce. How will we respond to His invitation to sit at His feet and listen?

Feeding the Hungry

Pastor Brent looks at a famous and miraculous story of Jesus when he fed over 5,000 people to see how often we are invited in by Jesus to be a part of meeting needs miraculously but are unable to participate when we operate from a theology of scarcity instead of a theology of leftovers.

The Uninvited Guest

Others. Outcasts. Self-Righteous. Often we make assumptions about people we might describe with one of these adjectives. But how did Jesus respond when confronted with those the world discarded and those who were religious? In Luke’s gospel, we find the story of Jesus having dinner with the religious crowd when it is interrupted by an immoral woman. And what we see Jesus do surprises us because he offers forgiveness to both. But often the gratitude for that forgiveness is proportionate…

Dining with the Enemy

In a new series called Today’s Special: Dining with Jesus, Pastor Amy looks at the criticism Jesus received from by the religious elite by eating with those who were considered unclean and how we need to follow Jesus’ example and be willing to share the table with those who are different from us.

Deconstruction

Deconstruction Q & R

Pastor Brent sits down with Pastor Amy, Elizabeth Pavey, and Steve Rogers to discuss questions that have been submitted during the deconstruction series. Questions discussed were What led to this moment? How do the traditions we have created intersect with the commands of God? Is the Bible flawed? Isn’t deconstruction a different gospel than the “good old time religion” I was taught? How do we deal with the guilt we feel while going through deconstruction?
