It’s not intentional but what we can so often get into the habit of doing is treating church as a chance to hang out with our friends, the people who are like us, the people we connect with. And instead of creating a community which demonstrates to people that life is better connected, we leave them out in the cold.
When is a coffee shop more than just a coffee shop? When it dreams of being a "community gathering place where people come together to connect and discover new things" Howard Shultz (Former CEO of Starbucks). God designed us for community and it's so good for us all!

We all need to start over sometimes in many different areas of life. How do you break the cycle of mistakes and failed attempts? Chris helps us to bust three myths that get in the way of us making a clean start and painting a better future for ourselves.
"The richness of Christmas is found in God's presence with us, not in extravagance. If you want to love like God loves, give more of yourself, not more stuff." Rob challenges us to be wise with our spending and emphasis on presents this Christmas.
Chris Porter gets us dreaming of an inclusive Christmas. "If God is for shepherds you better believe he is for you! If heaven comes for them, you better believe it comes for you.
If you feel like you’re the last pick – heaven is for you and here it comes.
If you feel like you’re alone – here comes heaven.
If you feel like you’re a foreigner, homeless – here comes heaven.
If you’re the outcast – here comes heaven to include you."
