When people say they hear from God, it can often feel like something foreign or even a bit odd. Do regular people hear from God? Who is the Holy Spirit and what does He have to do with hearing God speak? In this week’s message, we looked at the role of the Holy Spirit in our lives - specifically how the Holy Spirit can help us to hear God’s voice in our lives. Let’s continue the journey of using this time to hear God’s voice more clearly than ever before.
You get a gut feeling, you hear a whisper, you feel a desire come up in your soul...is that God speaking to you? How do you know it’s not just your own voice? Or maybe you pray and pray and never hear anything. Does that mean God doesn’t have anything to say about your life? We looked at how to start a practical approach to discerning whether God is really speaking to you and how you can know that God is speaking into your life. This week we looked specifically at how to engage scripture. Will you get ready for the next step in hearing from God and discerning whether He is speaking to you?
Need help parenting in quarantine? Well, COVID-19 has certainly brought some unique challenges for families. If you’re a parent, you’re now finding yourself trying to educate, navigate extra screen time, find space for conversations, and make sure your kids stay healthy mentally. How can you balance it all?
The world is full of noise vying for your attention every day, but you rarely think about it. Who are the voices you listen to most? What about the voice of God? Do you hear His voice at all? If He spoke, would you know it’s Him? Or maybe it’s just something you ate. We’ll be looking at what the voice of God sounds like and how you can use solitude to begin to hear it.
Do you ever wonder if it's possible to hear God's voice? We hear about it in the Bible, but does He still speak to people in a personal way today? Join Jeff Brodie as he hosts 3 other staff members from Connexus Church, as they share their real life experiences hearing from God in their day to day lives.
So if Jesus already died on Friday, why would he return on Sunday? If the resurrection even happened, why does it matter? Join us for an Easter Celebration as we discover why Easter matters so much to each and every one of us. We will be celebrating the incredible hope of the resurrection of Jesus at our Easter services and it’s going to be a powerful morning!
Do you ever wonder why Easter still matters? Or does it? Did Jesus live? If he did, did he really die on a cross and come back to life? Where’s the proof and what does it all mean? Join us for a Live Q&A and bring your questions! Jeff Brodie, is hosting Carey Nieuwhof (Connexus Founder) & Vijay Krishnan (Lead Pastor of The Well) as they tackle your toughest questions about Easter and the Christian faith. Plus, they’ll be joined by Andy Walker, worship leader at Connexus Church, as he shares the significance of Easter to him through music.
We live in uncertain times, and what happens if you find yourself in the midst of a faith crisis as a result? Walk away? Dig in? Maybe there's a way that you can lean into God even in the midst of uncertain circumstances.
Covid-19 has radically changed our world over the last few weeks. As you adjust to your new normal, maybe you're finding yourself in the midst of doubt and disappointment. In the midst of that, how can you find hope?
Fear is contagious, but so is hope. Hope is more powerful than fear. Let’s be people who share hope. In a culture of fear, let’s choose to be FOR people.
We live in a culture that tells us "You are worthy, look inside yourself." But where does that end? What if your version of what's right and true doesn't mesh with someone else's? What do you do when we start hitting the roadblocks of defining your own morality?
What a morning to celebrate how Jesus has changed people’s lives and their choice to follow Him. It’s amazing to see what God is doing. Baptism is also a time for all of us to reflect on the death and resurrection of Jesus, and celebrate the freedom He brings us.
Maybe your marriage is.... ok.... but that's as far as it goes? What if you could move past that, like way past that? What if you could move your mairrage from just surviving to totally thriving? Don't miss this special interview with Toni Nieuwhof as she pulls the lid off of some of the top marriage tips and troubles.
Looking for relationship advice for breakups? We all have hopes and dreams, but what are we supposed to do when our hearts are broken and our dreams can’t come true? It’s tempting to take matters into our own hands, but is there a better way?
If you don’t want a relationship like the majority of relationships, don’t date like the majority of daters. It can be easy to blend, bend, and pretend in order to get in or stay in a relationship. But we need to ask ourselves: Am I losing myself in order to do so?
Many times, we learn from our mistakes in the areas that matter least, but we repeat our mistakes in the areas that matter most. So how can we ensure that the next time won’t be like the last time? Instead of being a conformer, it’s time to be a transformer.
From elementary school through high school, many of us had ideas of what the perfect relationship would look like in the future. While those dreams may not represent our current reality, a step in the right direction could be to follow the apostle Paul’s advice—move from our childish ways and start being grownups.
If becoming the right kind of person is key to a great relationship, how do you do that? Is there something you can do to prepare? Does it just happen? Sure, we’re supposed to love others, but what does that really mean? Let’s lean in and read the fine print.
In relationships, we often believe if we find the right person it will make everything right. So we ask ourselves, “Is this the right person for me?” Maybe we need to be asking a different question—a question that shifts our focus from seeking the right kind of person to becoming the right kind of person.
If you were designed by God and sin marred that design, how do you push past those limits to reach your potential? The answer is, surprisingly, through the redemptive work of Jesus. Following Jesus doesn’t just change eternity, it changes your present. The path to spiritual and emotional health is the key to redeeming the image of God in you.
So you were created by God to be a certain way, but somehow sin got in the way. You have great intentions, but they’re difficult to realize. You try your best, but you fail. What gives? Were your personality flaws part of God’s design? Is this just how He made you? When sin entered the picture, so did un-health. And as we’ll see this week, lurking beneath your wiring is a wound.
So...why isn’t everyone a little more like you? The world would be a better place, would it not? Apparently, not. When God designed humankind, he pronounced his work to be very good. However, as the Enneagram reveals, He didn’t make us all the same. Maybe the differences aren’t deficiencies, they’re design.
The Enneagram is an ancient personality type profile, and over the last two years Ian Morgan Cron’s book, The Road Back To You, has helped several hundred thousands of people discover what their number means.
Ian talks to Carey about how the Enneagram can help grow your self-awareness and how to reduce conflict at work and at home by understanding how different personality types work. They also discuss the Enneagram as a spiritual growth tool.
Resolutions are a decision to put in some extra effort to achieve a goal. But when it comes to our faith, often growth comes faster when we step out into what God calls us to - taking a risk more so than making a resolution. Why is that? Where does reading scripture and prayer fit into this? What would 2020 look like if you chose to “step out of the boat”?
