“Who am I?” In his letter, Paul is inviting his readers to remember their true identity. True identity remembers who God is (Jesus!), who we are, and who He says we are. All sin, on the other hand, results from mistaken identity and leads to inner brokenness and outer brokenness. Paul himself was learning what it meant to live out of his true identity. Our Lead Pastor Nate wraps our 4 week teaching series through Paul’s Letter to the Philippians. Join us in looking at Paul’s letter to the Philippians with fresh eyes.

There is a former life before Jesus that looked good on the outside for Paul: it looked good religiously and it looked good socially. Yet, the Apostle Paul describes his former (good) life as garbage; why? Paul uses strong language to make a strong point: his life with Jesus far surpasses any other version of his life without Jesus. Our Lead Pastor Nate Ray continues our 4 week teaching series through Paul’s letter to the Philippians. Join us in looking at Paul’s letter to the Philippians with fresh eyes.

Jesus Christ is perfect theology. He shows us what God is like, gives us the tools for navigating relationships with one another, and He forms us in relationship with one another. Our Lead Pastor Nate Ray continues our 4 week teaching series through Paul’s letter to the Philippians. Join us in looking at Paul’s letter to the Philippians with fresh eyes.

Our Lead Pastor Nate Ray kicks off a 4 week teaching series through Paul’s letter to the Philippians. New to the Bible? The Front is the perfect church for you! We try and talk about the Bible in everyday ordinary ways, so that everyday ordinary people can understand. When reading Paul’s letter to the Philippians, it’s tempting to think, “Whoa! Paul is amazing!” But if we do that, we’ll miss the point. When we read Philippians, we should think, “Whoa, Jesus is amazing! Look at His work through Paul’s life! Look at His work through the church in Philippi!” We invite you to look at Paul’s letter to the Philippians with us with fresh eyes.

Our Lead Pastor Nate Ray continues our teaching series, “Christmas Interrupted.” This Sunday, we take a look at the Magi. The first word they speak is “Where?” – the first words of any human character in Matthew’s Gospel. They were a lot like us. The Magi were from a different religious and cultural tradition, and God interrupts their traditions because He loves them, pursues them, and wants them to know Him. Their interruption becomes an invitation to know God – a God quite different than any deity they’d ever pictured. We invite you to look at this story with us with fresh eyes.

Our Lead Pastor Nate Ray continues our teaching series, “Christmas Interrupted.” This Sunday, we take a look at the shepherds. The shepherds needed the lies they believed about themselves interrupted by a word from God. They thought they weren’t worth God’s love; they thought God was far away; they thought God didn’t notice; they thought because of their mistakes, they had to earn God’s love. In their own eyes, they thought very little of themselves. In the eyes of society, they were outcasts. In the eyes of religious society, they were religious outcasts. But God chose these shepherds to announce the good news of His Son. We invite you to look at this story with us with fresh eyes.

Our Lead Pastor Nate Ray kicks off our new teaching series, “Christmas Interrupted.” We take a look at Joseph, a character in the Christmas story whose dreams and expectations for his life are violently interrupted by two words: “I’m pregnant.” What do we do when our dreams and expectations for our imagined life are so violently interrupted? What do we do when the interruption is so fierce we can’t imagine a future beyond it? Sometimes the only thing that will suffice in these moments is a word from God. That’s what happens with Joseph in Matthew 1:18-25. We invite you to look at this story with us with fresh eyes.

Do you ever feel “ungrounded?” Do you feel like life is moving too fast and getting your bearings seems to be an impossibility? What if this holiday season could be an opportunity to (re)discover practices that ground you? This week, our Lead Pastor Nate shares about an encounter with Jesus, recorded for us in Luke’s Gospel (Luke 17:11-19) and offers some reflections and suggestions as we enter the Christmas season. Watch and be encouraged.

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.
