This Sunday (12/29) at Ascension: The Gifts We Bring

December 26, 2013
Admin
The Gifts We Bring King Herod certainly did not appropriately embrace the newborn King. Even if we are not disturbed or threatened by Jesus, how might we wrongly regard him? Could we be misguided even in the gifts we bring? What can we learn from the wise men from the east who visited Jesus? Join us as we consider the nature of our worship and gift-giving at this time of year and throughout the coming year.   Youth Sunday School for ages 12+ Identity & Purpose @ 9:30AM

Christmas Lessons and Carols

November 29, 2013
Admin
The Extraordinary via the Ordinary Join us for Lessons and Carols this Sunday. Sing with us many of our favorite Christmas carols. Hear scripture lessons read. Ponder the mystery of the incarnation. Have we become foggy or numbed to the good news of great joy by the tinsel and the glitter? We miss the spectacular and extraordinary when we dismiss the simple, and the otherwise ordinary. But there is good news to tell ourselves and tell others. Let's revisit the narrative and the mystery.

Twice Perfect Messiah

November 29, 2013
Admin
n a season when Christians celebrate the birth of their Savior/Messiah, the world is in no better shape than it was 2000 years ago. When critics bring this up, Christians argue that Jesus will bring in eternal righteousness and messianic deliverance at his second coming. Jews and non-Christians question the validity of this claim and refute the notion of a second coming. Is there a valid basis for the notion of two comings? Rabbi Irving Salzman will demonstrate from the Hebrew Bible that two comings were anticipated all along: Jesus got it ...

This Sunday (10/27) at Ascension: Greater Rejoicing?

October 25, 2013
Admin
Greater Rejoicing! How often do we find ourselves rejoicing over lesser things with less joy? Is it because we do not see what we should be celebrating? We are meant for a fuller, more expansive joy. Join us this Sunday as we examine what Jesus says we should rejoice over and how Jesus himself rejoiced. We are confident you will find it the source of greater rejoicing. Join us for Sunday School before our Worship Service Adult Sunday School class Christ in the Old Testament @ 9:15AM. Youth Sunday School for ages 12+ Identity & Purpose @ ...

This Sunday (10/20) at Ascension: Grim Reaping?

October 18, 2013
Admin
Grim Reaping? How do we react when we hear Jesus saying that the harvest is plentiful but more harvesters are needed? Sensing the difficulty, few of us jump right in. Most of us have reservations about "proclaiming the good news" to those who need to hear. Why? How do we go about harvesting, and how do we change our minds about harvesting? Harvesting isn't for the faint of heart, but if we take what Jesus says to heart, we can move from the ranks of the reluctant to ready. Come join us this Sunday at 11AM. You may well come away ready to ...

This Sunday (10/13) at Ascension: The Urgency of Glory

October 11, 2013
Admin
The Urgency of Glory Some of us are too quick to speak and others of us too slow to take action. Does either of these tendencies fit the way we are to follow Jesus? While we are not to be unthinking in our zeal, we are to be intentional in our intensity. Jesus gives us reasons for this, and He is also our example. Come join us this Sunday at 11AM as we think about why, where, and how disciples are to replace distraction with unmistakable passion.

Pursuing Greatness But those who understand the gospel cannot possibly look down on anyone, since they were saved by sheer grace, not by their perfect doctrine or strong moral character. — Timothy Keller Join us this Sunday at 11AM for worship, edifying and challenge from the Gospel of Luke.

September 20, 2013
Admin
The Generosity of Glory What would our interactions with others be like if we more regularly "soaked" in the generous grace which God pours out on us? How would this shape the way we view and deal with people on a daily basis? Join us this Sunday at 11AM to see how our interactions change when we address our insecurities with God’s generosity.

This Sunday (09/22) at Ascension: Remedy for Apathy

September 20, 2013
Admin
Remedy for Apathy Lukewarm people are moved by stories about people who do radical things for Christ, yet they do not act. They assume such action is for “extreme” Christians, not average ones. Lukewarm people call “radical” what Jesus expected of all His followers...Lukewarm people say they love Jesus, and He is, indeed, a part of their lives. But only a part. They give Him a section of their time, their money, and thoughts, but He isn’t allowed to control their lives. — Francis Chan Join us this Sunday as we seek to understand a common ...

This Sunday (09/01) at Ascension: Misunderstood Glory

September 05, 2013
Admin
Misunderstood Glory Having recently seen the Messiah's glory both in a display of divine sound and sight and in a deliverance amid demonic night, can we still be mistaken about the Jesus' majesty and mission?  His closest followers were. Why might we not perceive his priority? What can we do to ensure we understand what is needed and is central to our deliverance? Come find out this Sunday.

This Sunday (09/15) at Ascension: The Danger of Familiarity

September 05, 2013
Admin
The Danger of Familiarity Prostitutes are in no danger of finding their present life so satisfactory that they cannot turn to God: the proud, the avaricious, the self-righteous, are in that danger. — C.S. Lewis Join us this Sunday as we seek to understand a common pitfall in our walk with God and the solution that helps us overcome it.

This Sunday (09/01) at Ascension: Astonishing Majesty

August 22, 2013
Admin
Astonishing Majesty Even our most transcendent moments come to an end, and often they are soon followed by some of the most threatening and disheartening events.  Why and what might we come to know of Jesus and the Gospel when this happens. Subsequent to the "mountain top" experience of the Transfiguration was the tragic realization of failure by fellow disciples. Could this actually be a more down-to-earth opportunity to catch a glimpse of glory? Join us this Sunday at Ascension as we find out.  We will also celebrate the Lord's Supper ...

This Sunday (08/18) at Ascension: Serious Grace

August 16, 2013
Joanne Lu
Join us as we look at Luke 9:21-27 on Surprising Grace. “Your call is clear, cold centuries across; You bid me follow you, and take my cross, And daily lose myself, myself deny, And stern against myself shout ‘Crucify’. The world, to see my cross, would pause and jeer. I have no choice, but still to persevere To save myself – and follow you from far, More slow than Magi-for I have no star. And yet you call me still. Your cross Eclipses mine, transforms the bitter loss I thought that I would suffer if I came To you- into immeasurable ...

This Sunday (7/28) at Ascension: God of the Insignificant

July 26, 2013
Admin
Join us on Sunday at 11am, as we learn more about God's perspective on significance. But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us. We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed; always carrying in the body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our bodies. For we who live are always being given over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that the life of ...
