Death to Selfie
September 13 - October 11, 215
When we compare our unfiltered lives to a world cropped and edited where everything is perfect, we’re left with thoughts of misery and frustration. The struggle to know who we are in the world without compromising who we are in Christ is a battle as old as mankind—but so is God’s answer for finding peace. In this series, we’ll discover how finding our identity in Christ can save us from the greatest obstacle standing in our way—us.

We live for those coming after us: We believe that the future is now and we want to equip the next generation to do greater and go further than we can ever imagine.

This Summer Anna Edwards, Dylan Hamata, Mitchell Hamata and Morgan Hamata were DARE Interns. They gave five weeks of their summer to serve and to be disciple! This morning we get to hear a short message from each of them and see a snapshot of what God is doing in their life. We also hear from Dani Kimball, our summer student worker. Let’s celebrate together what God is doing in the next generation of our church!

Scripture. Observation. Application. Prayer:
Regardless of how much of the Bible you read each day, the goal is to find one verse each day you feel is speaking to you and write it down. (Scripture)
Then, write down what you see in the verse. (Observation)
Next, write down how you feel this applies to your life. (Application)
And finally, turn your observation and application into a dedication. In other words, write out a prayer to God of how you’re going to live your life differently because of this verse today. (Prayer) Let’s expect to grow together as we SOAP!

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith. Because of the joy awaiting him, he endured the cross, disregarding its shame. Now he is seated in the place of honor beside God’s throne.”
His Story, Your Story, Our Story
April 5 - May 24, 2015
Our Stories Matter. The story of Christ's life and death on the cross gives us the opportunity to see his continual work and transforming power in our lives. Each of us has a story because of what Christ has done for us. All we need to do is share it!
Hearing other people share their stories with courage, honesty, and integrity, allows us a glimpse into the heart of God and what he wants for us. In this series we will be able to hear stories of how God transforms lives and uses individual experiences to connect us with one another and to continue His work through His Church.

Relationships: Probably nothing in our lives affects us more.
In this series we are going to be looking at how God designed us for relationships and what His plans are for us in those relationships.
Far too often the reality of our relationships is not what we dreamed of or what God wants for us. He created us for the extraordinary, but we often find ourselves living in the ordinary. Let’s explore together what work God wants to do in our hearts and in our relationships!
Hope is Here
December 14 - December 28, 2014
What did HOPE look like for the people who waited, watched and longed for Jesus birth? Was it what they expected? Were they surprised?
What HOPE are you waiting, watching and longing for?
HOPE is HERE! Hope is NOW! Hope is Jesus!
Join us this Christmas season as we look to the Hope of the World!
A Place to BELONG
September 14th - November 30, 2014
Christ died for us to BELONG to Him and He wants us to be part of something bigger than ourselves. Everyone needs a place to BELONG! We see this all around us; people long to BELONG somewhere.
God didn’t create us to serve Him alone—we are better together! What does it look like to BELONG to this group of people at The Ap? Who are we? What has God called us to do? How are we going to accomplish it?
All Things NEW
June 8 - September 7, 2014
What do you think of when you hear “New Testament”? Long and boring? Old book on your shelf? The Gideons?
Why do we call a 2000 year old collection of writings NEW?
“All Things New” is a look at the books in the New Testament of our Bible. Who wrote them? Why did they write them? Who did they write them to? What does it mean for our lives today?
March 2 - April 6, 2014
It's easy for us to forget how Jesus said his followers would actually live, what their new lifestyle would actually look like. They would, he said, leave behind security, money, convenience, and even family for him. They would abandon everything for the gospel. They would take up their crosses daily... but who do you know who lives like that? Do you?
Let's see what Jesus actually said about being his disciple.
January 12 - February 23, 2014
Sometimes life just doesn't look the way that we want it to. Maybe the problem is that we aren't building our lives in a way that really matters.
Luke 6:47-48 teaches us what it means to purposefully BUILD:
- Thriving relationships with others - Effective work lives - Healthy physical lives - Successful financial lives -Extraordinary marriages - Passionate relationships with God
What's in a Name?
November 24 - December 22, 2013
Have you ever waited a long time for something? Something that you knew would be amazing? For centuries people waited for a Saviour; someone to rescue them. They had occasionally heard little teasers about who He would be, but they didn’t always know what to expect.
What's in a Name will be focused on discovering the Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace.
