Unleash Love is about letting loose more prayer, more power, more ministry, and more generosity than we ever have. It has the power to change our church and community. And it will change you too as you allow the incredible love of God to flow through you and deepen your dependence on Him, strengthen your faith, expand your generosity, and increase your impact.

Unleash Love

If God had a fraternity, what would it look like? Would it just be for prudes and choirboys? Or would it be a place for all people to belong, party together, discover their purpose, and live life to the full? Kappa, Delta, Pi might be Greek to you, but those Greek letters provide a key to understanding what life with Jesus is all about. Come, bring your friends, and hang out at God’s Frat Party.

In our high-tech, low-touch world we often find ourselves out of touch with each other and God. But touch heals. It reassures. It restores. As the story of Jesus unfolds, everywhere he went people wanted to touch him. Jesus responded with hands that reached in all directions to heal, bless, and forgive. And those hands are still reaching toward those in need of his touch.

Few things attract more attention in our world today than the tensions between people of differing skin colors. In a country aflame with the fallout from the racial divide—the latest news story creating even deeper wounds―is there hope for honest and healing conversation? Can we ever understand each other on issues that are ultimately about so much more than black and white? We’ll ask ourselves these questions and more, getting real about race and searching for answers that lie deep under our skin.

Exhausted. Overwhelmed. Over-scheduled. Sound familiar? A fast-paced life can consume and control us and often becomes the norm. We do things that keep us busy but don’t really matter, sacrificing the things that do. What if your life could be different? What if you could be certain you were living the life God called you to live and building a legacy for those you love? You can—if you’re ready to Simplify.

Mullets. Slinkies. Beanie Babies. Parachute pants. Remember those phases? It doesn’t really matter if you missed those phases. But life is made up of phases, too. Wherever you are in life, it’s a season. And God has plans for you in this stage. Don’t miss it.

The most amazing thing about God’s love is that it’s not just a bunch of rules or stuff we have to agree with. God’s love is different. It changes things. It’s active. It works. It risks. It invites. It sacrifices. Love…does. Imagine what God could do with a whole bunch of people who knew that love takes action?

Who knew that following Jesus would lead us uphill? In the weeks before Easter we will walk, putting one foot in front of the other, following in the footsteps of Jesus. It will be a climb that takes us to the Upper Room where we invest in friendships around the table, to Gethsemane where we surrender our will to God's, and finally to Golgotha where we face the call to lay down our lives in service to others. This is uphill faith. Are you ready to follow all the way?

Some of us have it all figured out. Our lives are neat and tidy. Or so we think. And if that’s you, then read no further.

But for the rest of us—the unfit and misfit, the least, lost, or left out, the addicted and the dysfunctional, even those turned off by church—is there still hope for us? Does God only care about those who’ve got it together? Or might he be a God for the rest of us?

So what’s the "word"? Yes, just one word. Lose the long list of New Year’s resolutions―all your sweeping promises to change―and do something about ONE thing this year instead of doing nothing about everything.

What one word represents what you most hope God will do in you this year?

So many Christians live bland lives that blend in rather than stand out. What if your life was meant to be more courageous? What if we dared to stop playing it safe and did whatever God told us to? The world needs to see unashamed, gutsy believers who won’t blend or bend. It’s time to be BOLD!

There’s a big difference between believing in God and being truly connected to God. Sometimes we feel distant or disconnected spiritually. It’s like we’re stuck, coasting, or asleep. But deep inside each of us are longings for more. We are hungry for meaning. For love. For God. It’s time to let these longings wake us up to the life God has for us. It’s time for an AWAKENING!

“You got schooled!” We say that when someone gets beat on the basketball court or learns an important lesson in life. Sometimes it’s embarrassing. But the truth is we all have more to learn. And we need to be ‘schooled’ by someone who knows how to do life right. So sharpen your pencils or open your laptops, it’s time to learn from the Master.

Jesus said so many things that sound crazy on the surface—and upside down and backwards. According to Jesus, the blessed life comes when we are “poor” and “meek.” Fulfillment is found in the saddest and hardest times. And those are just a few of the 8 crazy ways we find the blessed life in the Beatitudes. If you want all that Jesus promises, then ‘bring on the crazy’ this summer.

Love handles. We have them, we hide them, or we try to prevent them. But those flaws in our physique are just one more reminder that we’re imperfect people. And the people we have relationships with are the same way. So how do we love the imperfect people around us? How do we get a handle on the many different relationships we have? How can we grab hold of the life God wants for us whether we’re trying to relate to our parents or children, spouses or ex-spouses, friends or those we’re dating? Join us for Love Handles as we try to get a grip on love and life.

TORN. There are torn pages in books, torn photos in an album, and torn muscles that set us back. Then there are also Torn Dreams. Torn Families. Torn Hearts and Torn Lives. We all know the pain between the life we hoped for and the life we now live. But the torn part of us is not the end of the story. God promises to bring healing and hope to whatever is torn in our lives. The first step is bringing the pieces of our past so God can heal our future. Are you ready?

We're all trying to keep the wheel of our life rolling along. Some of us are moving smoothly, while others are dealing with a slow leak, too much pressure, or a blowout that leaves us stranded. Life is more than a joy ride, so let's think seriously about where God's calling us to go and how we're going to get there.

“The greatest story ever told” is more than a cliché. It’s a story of a God who goes to heroic lengths to seek out the lost, heal the broken, reinstate the rebellious, and buy back those who have sold themselves to lesser pursuits in life. That is what The Story is all about. It’s the story of the Bible, God's great love affair with humanity, and it’s filled with intrigue, drama, conflict, romance, and redemption; and, believe it or not, this story's TRUE!
