Prayers aren’t empty words hurled at the sky. They’re conversations—in fact, they’re the most important conversations of our lives. Find out just how much it matters when you Pray.
Your money says it, but is it true? There is more anxiety about finances than we’ve had in a long time— for some of us, we’re more worried than ever about money. There’s no denying we’re in a season of conflict and chaos—but the noise in your news feed doesn’t have to pollute your soul. You can find peace. You can find hope. You can trust in the One who holds the future in His hands. At a moment when the economy is reaching a fever pitch, this series will cut through the noise and remind us of where we place our hope.
The book of Acts ends with an unfinished story. The last several chapters give us a church and a pastor (Paul) on trial, resisting the commands to stop preaching the Gospel. And this is the legacy of the Church of Jesus, a Spirit empowered defiance— still writing the story today, over 2K years later.
Loving and caring for each other. Bringing peace and truth into darkness. Pointing each other toward Jesus. It’s what we do, and it’s a beautiful expression of God at work through us. We are a church OF people who hurt, not just a church to the people who hurt. We are a church OF the community in Stanly County, not just a church to the community. And finally, we are a church OF the next generation, not just a church that wants to have a few younger people attend now and then.
If you choose to follow someone for the rest of your life, don’t you want to know where they’re going? Jesus calls people to follow Him, and knowing where He’s headed will change everything. In this series, we’ll learn how to be like Jesus in Today’s World.
Relationships can be complicated. Navigating how to connect, love, and do life together are some of the most important lessons. In this series, we will tackle how to build healthy relationships God’s way.
It’s not enough to just show up at church. Our hearts long for more than that. We want to be needed. We want to be known. We want to have purpose and know that we make a difference. This series is an invitation for people to drive deep roots into our church, show them the difference they can make, and help them see the power they have inside them.
We’ve been tricked! We’ve believed lies like: our story is not important, we’re better off doing life alone, it’d be better if we waited until everything was perfect, we’re not qualified to share about Jesus, there’s no way for our loved ones to know Him… the list goes on. Believing these lies? That’s how not to save the world. It turns out, we can naturally share the truth about Jesus in our everyday lives. We can let those around us know how valuable they are to God. Throughout the How (Not) to Save the World series, we’ll unpack what God’s word actually says about revealing God’s love in our everyday lives. We’ve been created for it. We’ve been equipped for it. And we’re ready for it. Let’s go.
From the latest headline to social media comments—there are plenty of opportunities to be offended each day. But what if we decided to respond differently to those around us? Together, let’s learn how to live with No Offense.
It is impossible these days to turn on the news without hearing reports about how poorly the nation’s economy is doing. There is good news, though, for those who look to Jesus for answers. Jesus offers more wisdom and has more to say about money than any other subject besides the “Kingdom of God.” He talked more about money than he did Heaven and Hell combined. Eleven of the 39 parables He tells are about finances. The core mission of Jesus was love, acceptance and forgiveness but now, more than ever, we can appreciate why He spent so much time talking about money. Thankfully, unlike the news, His words are clear. Winning principles are there to not only be read, but utilized as well.
The story of Christmas is the story of the messiah – prophecies of old retold generation to generation. Year after year, the Jewish people spoke, memorized, and sang about the coming messiah. Can you see the eyes of children light up with wonder as they hear the words of Isaiah, Jeremiah, and David?
As the world grows more connected, our neighbors are closer than ever. You might not share a fence, but you can still share their burdens and joys. Far away places are also closer than ever. In this five week series, we’ll focus on different aspects of how to build relationships with our neighbors— local and global— and how to do good in the context of those relationships.
The Hustle: Why More is Never Enough
We’ve been tricked! We’ve believed lies. Lies like: the more security you have the safer you are, successful people are stressed out and busy, more money brings happiness, that we don’t have enough time, and that we can always start fresh tomorrow … the list goes on. Believing these lies? That’s how the hustle will get ya.
One of the after effects of the viral church was conflict, persecution, division and confusion. We’ll take a look at these effects of the church and see how we can apply scripture’s stories in real life today. Because, in case you haven’t noticed, we also face conflict, persecution, division, and confusion.
Astonishing. Fascinating. Out of control. Unprecedented. This is exactly how the news spread about the first church. People couldn’t get enough of it. The birth of the church attracted all the right people— and all the wrong people. Ok, mostly the wrong people. There was no shortage of bizarre, but also an incredible connection among them all. We’re taking this summer to dive deep into their lives, to see what God did among them and how they reacted. After all, God is still doing mind-blowing things when we get out of His way.
For thousands of years, women’s voices, spirituality, and leadership have sustained and guided families and communities. Their commitment and witness, woven together through sometimes-forgotten stories, continue to enrich the fabric of society.
The story of Elisha challenges us to answer God’s calling and take the risks that are necessary to do His will. Come see what life can look like when we let go…when we decide to have Ridiculous Faith.

Hope! We all need it. In 2020, some of us have lost it. Without hope, we give in to despair. You can see it on faces, hear it in voices. Have you given up hope?
For most of us, our faith is tested in crisis. Our new series through the book of James, a letter that serves as a how-to manual for the Christian life.
Some common phrases are so well-known that they almost sound like Scripture. But God’s wisdom is so much deeper and wider than tired, predictable clichés.
