A Note From Ryan Paulson, Lead Pastor – It’s been so good to see many of you in person over the last few months. As we’ve been meeting for worship services and prayer gatherings, it really seems as though the Lord is moving in our midst, growing and challenging us. In addition, I continue to be encouraged with the way that our online services are ministering to people who are unable or uncomfortable joining us on campus at this time. I’m humbled by and excited about all that Jesus is doing among us …

New Sermon Series Begins This Weekend

This weekend we’re starting a new series entitled Distance Learning. That’s a term I’m sure you’ve heard over the last few months, often in reference to kids learning online instead of in-person. But it’s a way of learning and growing that God has used to shape his people for generations. In fact, God has taught his people some of their deepest and most profound lessons of faith when they were far from home.

The name for this season throughout Israel’s history is exile. Exile is a time when things seem out of joint, disoriented, and frustrating. Sound familiar?

Our Distance Learning series will be a journey through the book of Daniel. Daniel is a book about bold faith, relentless worship, and prophetic visions. It’s a book about how to follow God while you’re living in an empire. It’s a book about something that happened, but it’s a book that, in many ways, diagnoses what’s happening in our day and time. In a profound way, Daniel creates a path forward for us in our current cultural moment.

I’ve been inspired by Daniel’s faithfulness and I trust that you will be, too. Join us this weekend as we kick off our new series, Distance Learning.

Lead Pastor
