  • In a social and spiritual climate of unrest and disagreement, we must be people of the Word. The Bible gives us stability and strength to know who God is, and to exercise our faith as followers of Jesus. It's not easy to be in the world today, and we must find our fuel and sustenance from God's truth


  • But as we continue in John 6, Jesus feeds the crowds and tells his disciples to feast. He is welcoming his friends to delight in what is good, and take part in what is holy. As a church we must not only be abstaining from sin, we must also be delighting in the goodness and beauty of God. As our desire for God increases, naturally, our inclination towards ourselves and sin will decrease.


  • In John 5, Jesus addresses the religious authority and proves that He exercises healing and power, and that his great authority comes from the Father.


  • Join the church gathered for a reimagining of John 4, the woman at the well, as we learn more about who Jesus is, and what He is asking of us today.


  • Of all the competing worldviews and religions, all claiming to be the source of absolute truth, do we believe the good news of Jesus life, death, and resurrection is true? And if true, what new life does it create in us?


  • This Sunday we will be in John 2, where Jesus brings physical changes to the world around him. And the physical change are a sign of the new life that he will bring fully in the years to come.


  • It is a simple question from Jesus to the very first disciples. What do you want in this life?
     
    This isn’t just a question for the first followers of Jesus, but a question for every human after as well, what do you supremely desire in this life? What is the your pursuit that if you were to achieve it, you would have judged your life to have been successful?
     
    Come as you are Sunday, come and receive the word of Jesus to your souls, that he calls us and he directs us to a life of delight and purpose.


  • Could there be a simpler understanding of the spiritual life? What is God like, and what does it mean for my life today?

    The Gospel of John was written not just for Christians, "but these are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name." (John 20:31) This Gospel is for everyone, and as we read and learn about Jesus the savior, God will transform us and move us to missionary intention.


  • I’ve been a team leader with RnB for about a year and a half now.  I had no idea it existed, and only found out about it because my community group at the time (Center City) and the Cotswold group did a joint serving event together.  I had been trying to find an outlet for serving in Charlotte, while also seeking a group / people who differed from me (older, had more experience in their faith, had different life experiences, etc.).  It just so happens that I found both.

     


  • Five years ago, I had the privilege of spending a month and a half in Jos, Nigeria. Jos is a city located north east of the capital Abuja and what would normally be about a two hour drive. However, with multiple checkpoints, bumpy terrain, and traffic, this is every bit of a 4 hour trek to the plateau of Jos. I went with an organization based out of Cincinnati, Ohio called Back2Back. They partner with local children’s homes (orphanages) and help to support those already engaged in the work of caring for the orphan child.
