Blessed are the Beggars - The Good Life Week 2 (Message)

“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs in the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 5:3). In other words, blessed are the spiritual beggars who admit their need for Jesus, for theirs is the presence, power, and life of Jesus. Watch as our Lead Pastor Nate Ray continues our teaching series by looking at the first part of Jesus’ “Happiness Manifesto.”

The Pursuit of Happiness - The Good Life Week 1 (Message)

It’s a strange thing when you get what you want and you’re still not happy. A lot of us know happiness for a moment, but still find ourselves searching for transcendent happiness that runs deeper than any given moment. Pastor Derwin Gray calls Matthew 5:1-10 Jesus’ “happiness manifesto.” Listen as our Lead Pastor Nate Ray kicks off our new teaching series, “The Good Life,” based on Derwin Gray’s book. Over the next 9 weeks, we’ll be looking at Jesus’ “happiness manifesto” and consider the life Jesus is inviting all of us into.

United (Message)

Nothing unites like a common enemy, but that type of unity always has an expiration date. It seems we’re more divided than ever. Yet, Jesus’ story invites us into something different. Jesus unites people who would otherwise be divided, for the healing of the world. Watch as our Lead Pastor Nate reflects on the 21st anniversary of September 11th, and invites us to consider what it means to allow Jesus’ story to shape our lives today. There is a unity available in Jesus that has no expiration date.

Where is the Resolution? - Jonah Part 5 (Message)

Jonah’s story needs a resolution; Israel’s story in the Old Testament needs a resolution; humanity’s story needs a resolution. Watch as our Least Pastor Nate finishes our Jonah series by looking at the words of Jesus in Matthew 12. Jesus uses the story of Jonah to rebuke those who feel religiously superior to others, and Jesus invites those who who may think themselves far from God to know God.

I Would Rather Die - Jonah Part 4 (Message)

How Did I Get Here? (Message)

We’re all either living through “How did I get here?” moments, or more “How did I get here?” moments are coming. Watch as our Lead Pastor Nate Ray shares from Luke 7, where we meet two people in their “How did I get here?” moments. But the best part is how Jesus responds. God may look a lot different than we have been tempted to think.

Wake Up Jonah - Jonah Part 3 (Message)

What’s going to wake Jonah up? So far we’ve seen the sailors wake up to God’s grace, and this week we’ll see the Ninevites wake up to God’s grace. But what will wake Jonah up? God loves us and is committed to do whatever it takes to wake us up to life with him. Watch as our Lead Pastor Nate continues our summer teaching series on Jonah with Part 3, “Wake Up Jonah.”

Not Sorry - Jonah Part 2 (Message)

Listen as our Lead Pastor Nate continues our summer teaching series on Jonah with Part 2, “Not Sorry.” Jonah’s thankful for God’s rescue, but he’s not sorry for his attitude towards his Ninevite enemies. He wants to hi-jack God’s agenda; he wants God to endorse his own agenda. If we’re not careful, the same thing happens in us – we just sprinkle God on top of our own agenda, instead of allowing God to set the agenda. And God is going to invite Jonah, and the Ninevites, and us back into the life he has for us; a life far better than a life we could plan for ourselves.

**OUR APOLOGIES. Please excuse the audio quality of the recording. Due to circumstances beyond our control, we found out last minute we would need to have church outside. We tried to make due, and things will be back to normal this next week.**

Jonah's Search for Peace - Jonah Part 1 (Message)

Watch as our Lead Pastor Nate kicks off our summer teaching series on Jonah, with Part 1, “A Search for Peace.” Where do you look to for peace? Ice cream? The perfect thrifting find? Things going according to your plans? Getting the right political leaders and political party in place? Newsfeeds to drown out your unwanted feelings? Jonah’s searching for peace too.

Hey Neighborhood (Message)

It’s Church Planting Weekend at The Front Church! Last week our Lead Pastor Nate Ray looked at one example of the Apostle Paul in action. Paul uses a multiplicity of methods to share the message of Jesus with the people around him (Acts 17). This week Nate interviews David Henderson, Lead Pastor of Neighborhood Church, a new non-denominational Christian church starting in Daybreak. Why do we start new churches? Why are they starting a church just 10 miles away from The Front? Watch to hear their story and why we’re excited to partner with them.

When in Athens (Message)

This week our Lead Pastor Nate Ray kicks off a mini series on Church Planting: why we think it’s important to start new churches all over the Salt Lake Valley, all over the country, and all over the world. The churches may look different and the methods may change, but the message remains the same. Listen in as we take a trip back in time to Athens and take a page out of Paul’s notebook, as he engages with a diverse crowd of people. We find this story in Acts 17, and there’s something in there for all of us.

Jesus Doesn't Want Your Money (Message)

This week our Lead Pastor Nate Ray wraps up our series “Let Me Tell You a Story” with the message, “Jesus Doesn’t Want Your Money.” Jesus talks a lot about money, but he never asks people for it. He’s not a televangelist looking to take advantage of people. The reason Jesus talks about money is because there is an invisible string connecting your heart to your money, and Jesus wants your heart. If you’ve been around church, this isn’t your typical church talk on money. If you’ve not been around church, there’s plenty in here for you too! Let’s lean in as Jesus tells us a story and listen.

A Mustard Seed (Message)

Have you ever wondered, “Will things ever change?” Jesus once told a parable, describing the kingdom of heaven like a mustard seed: it doesn’t look like much now, but one day, it will. That can be true of our lives as well. We may wonder, “Will things ever change?” But from the moment we invite Jesus into our lives, things will never be the same. Our Lead Pastor Nate continues our teaching series, “Let Me Tell You a Story.”

He's Not Far (Message)

No matter our traditions, we all come with a view of God: who God is, what God is like, what God thinks of me, what God thinks of them, what God is doing in the world. Jesus is always inviting us to reshape our views of God around Him, and to do so in community. Our Lead Pastor Nate Ray shares from Luke 18:9-14.
