5.28-29 Troy Medlin_keynote.001.jpeg

Troy gives us an in-depth look at Luke 7:1-10, the story of the Roman Centurion asking Jesus to heal his slave. He helps us understand the unlikeliness of this story and encourages us to reexamine what we think we know about God’s plan and those we personally see as outside His grace; and if Jesus could heal the supposed enemy, what does that mean about God and what God is up to in the world?

May 21 & 22, 2016 – Trinity Sunday – Larry Boatright

5.21-22 Trinity Weekend title.001.jpeg

“We also celebrate in seasons of suffering because we know that when we suffer we develop endurance, which shapes our characters. When our characters are refined, we learn what it means to hope and anticipate God’s goodness. And hope will never fail to satisfy our deepest need because the Holy Spirit that was given to us has flooded our hearts with God’s love.” -Romans 5:3-5

This week, Larry walks us through the cycle of suffering, endurance, refined character, and hope. He explains that our suffering does not define us and encourages us to recognize the seasons of suffering that everyone goes through as opportunities for transformation.

May 7 & 8, 2016 – Coming Home – Amanda Hodge

5.7.16 Coming Home-2.001.jpeg

 

Through storytelling, Amanda encourages us to seek what revitalizes each of us and to allow it to bring us fully into the present.

“The doing part of our lives drains us, dries us up and cripples us unless we come home. When we come home we fill ourselves up with wonder, joy, instinct, creativity, revitalization. In the process we create a bridge that allows us to bring those qualities back to our doing lives. It creates space for us to be present.” -Amanda Hodge

WonderLife - Screen

“Life is not a problem to be solved. But a reality to be experienced.”
– Soren Kierkegaard

Life is full of beauty and also pain beyond what words can express. It is both sweet and sour. It’s crap and cupcakes. Good days and disasters.

WONDERLIFE is a series of gatherings designed to help you understand WHO YOU ARE and WHY YOU ARE HERE, discovering the joy and wonder of being the YOU that God made you to be.
