How many times have you seen those advertisements; you know the "limited-time only", "this offer ends soon, don't delay!" ads that are designed to cause us to buy that car, refinance the house, or a myriad of other responses. While the Bible is full of promises and propositions that are open-ended and can be accessed and at any time, there are some invitations that are not. Today's guest teacher, Alex Ellis, shares a powerful word that carries such an invitation. Do you see the signs of God moving in your own life or others lives? Have you felt an urgent call of God to go deeper, to seek more of His presence in your daily life? Now is the time respond! God is wanting to do something in your life, right now...He's just waiting for your response.

We sincerely hope that our series "Upgrade" has helped you to do just that: To take those most critical areas of your life to the next level. And as always, Pastor Chris has the fitting conclusion for you today, and that's all about upgrading your prayer life. If there's one thing that we must get right, it's spending time with God. The great thing about that is that you don't need to be an expert theologian or have a Masters of Divinity to have a great prayer life. More often than not, it's just consistently taking the time to spend the time with Him. Prayer doesn't have to be complicated, but it needs to happen, and today's message will give you some encouraging strategies to do just that. So if you're a note taker, grab your Bible and a journal join us!

It's one thing to say "thank you" out of politeness or manners, but it could be an entirely different thing to be grateful. Gratitude is much more than manners, although it certainly can be expressed through polite humility. Gratitude is a heart-position that can help us to be thankful in the worst of circumstances, and how many times have we been in those dark places where it's difficult to be grateful for anything? In our latest installment of the "Upgrade" series, Pastor Chris takes us on a journey through what it means to live a life filled with gratitude and how living with an ungrateful spirit can short-circuit even the best of intentions and preparation.

Proverbs 9:10 says that "The fear of The Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of The Holy One is understanding", but what does it mean to fear The Lord, and is it something that you can get better at? Pastor Chris goes into great depth to explain why it's important to have the right definition and the right context when we talk about fearing The Lord because when we get that right, it's going to bring us closer not only to God, but to a greater revelation of the plans and purposes that He has for us.

On a scale from 1 to 10, how generous do you think you are? Hopefully at least a 5, right? But are you sure you really know what it means to be generous? The world has a few good ideas about it, but God's Word has a lot to say on the subject, and Pastor Chris lays out some life-giving lessons from both the Old and New Testaments. Living generously is not just about money, although the world often equates the two. It's also not about "checking the boxes" or just paying it forward because it's the trendy thing to do. Generosity is a lifestyle of gratitude and good deeds being done out of the abundance of God's Love and provision. Maybe it's time for a generosity check-up. It can change your life!

You are in for a real treat today! Continuing in our series "Upgrade", Pastor Chris goes old-school with some lessons in Hebrew on the different words used in the Old Testament for praise. If you think that this is going to be some dry, boring, foreign language study, you couldn't be further from the truth. Today's message has all the potential to upend some old and tired (and consequently lifeless) ideas about what praise is and how it is to be expressed. Come and learn what good things The Master says about praise!

When you consider the idea of service, what do you think about? A lot of folks think of it as part of an occupation; like at a restaurant or an automotive garage, and although I'm sure you could classify a portion of today's message in that context, it goes far beyond any occupational designs. Pastor Chris continues in the new series "Upgrade" and frames the idea of servanthood as one of the earmarks of greatness. Only in the Kingdom does it make any sense that if we want to be the greatest, we must truly humble ourselves in the service of others.

What kinds of things are you hoping for in 2018? New relationships? Perhaps a promotion? Maybe you're hoping for more direction toward your purpose. Maybe it's discovering that you have a purpose! Pastor Chris starts the new series "Upgrade" today and with it, a challenge to look at things a little differently. God is always doing something new and sometimes we need to trade our tired excuses that keep us tied to what God has done in the past and jump headlong into the work He is wanting you to be a part of today. So please, if you're thinking that 2018 is just another year, think again, and join us on this most excellent journey.

Change: It can represent a great many things to different people; but for almost everyone, change is inevitable and as we close the books on 2017, you can bet that 2018 will have many opportunities for change. Maybe you're in a place right now that you need to change, but you lack the knowledge or strength to move forward. Pastor Chris boldly lays out some practical, Biblical steps to tackle those challenges that hold us back from God's best in our lives. Make 2018 the best year of your life: Make the decision to be all-in for God!

Can you believe that Christmas is here already? It seems that the busier we are, life just slips right by us and before you know it, we've missed that miraculous birth in the most humble place possible. Not literally of course, but you get the idea. Today, Pastor Chris takes us on a journey back in time to investigate the life of king Herod and how his rule compared and contrasted to the Kingdom that Jesus would bring at His birth. We hope you have a most joyous Christmas this year filled with the true treasures of friendship, love, and most of all the gifts of redemption and salvation through Christ Jesus.
