This week Pastor Jeff continues discussing how we are to pray for one another. Praying for one another is a powerful way to break isolation, discouragement, shame, and hopelessness. Amanda Stout shares a life-change testimony of how her breakthrough came in prayer. From there Pastor Jeff discusses the barriers in our lives that keep us from experiencing the power of praying for each other in our own lives.
Pastor Jeff starts a new series entitled One Another-ing Each Other based on Jesus' words in John 17:20-23. Jesus tells us that God’s heart is that we would really be for one another! That we’d become “mature in this one-ness” so that we’d experience a HUGE blessing of heaven here on earth and share that love with a lost and hurting world.
The first part of this series focuses on how praying for one another removes isolation and brings us together.
In the powerful conclusion to our Breaking Chains Series, Pastor Cindy talks about how the power of the Cross is the hope for our freedom. Cindy reminds us the importance of not taking that power for granted.

Pastor Jeff continues through the breaking chains series with part 1 of a message on breaking the spirit of poverty over our lives. The early church demonstrated God's generosity in powerful ways, but many of us fall short of that example today. Pastor Jeff examines how the fear of wealth and the fear of lack produce a poverty mindset in our lives that keeps us from living generously.
Pastor Cindy adds another installment to the breaking chains series as she tackles the taming of the tongue. Listen along as she shares from the book of James on how the tongue holds the power of life and death. Learn how the first step in breaking the power of negative words spoken over you is repenting for the negative words that you've spoken over others.
Pastor Chris continues the series on allowing God to break the chains that hold us back from fully living by examining how anxiety is our indicator that we need a deeper connection with God. Hear about some of the cognitive distortions that lead to anxiety and learn how fear drives us into an anxiety cycle. Finally learn about God's three ingredients for getting out of this cycle: Grace, Truth, and Time. Allowing these three things to transform us is how God brings us into his shalom - the peace that surpasses understanding.
