In this talk we learn that our jobs are not our identity or the validation of our worth. In short, you are more than your job!
Sometimes our jobs can feel like a ball and chain that we need to escape from. Breakthrough doesn't always come from a change of scenery, but sometimes all we need is a new perspective. Jesus gives us a new way to think about our jobs that ends up freeing us from the ball and chain.
We spend an incredible amount of our lives at work, and at the same time the vast majority of Americans feel like there is little purpose in their jobs. Jesus offers us a new way to think about our work that leads us into meaning in our 9-5 jobs.

Jesus is a master who leads by serving, unlike the world's structure of masters directing their slaves from afar. How can we learn from His example?
Our Worship Pastor, Jeremy West, continues our series on how Jesus turns the world upside down and right side up. This week's message contrasts the world's definition of wealth with Heaven's definition. Do we realize how wealthy we are by earthly standards? Does true satisfaction and happiness come from the possessions we have, or is there more to the story?

As we reflect on Jesus's sacrifice are we fully aware of what it means to be a new creation? Do we live our lives fully convinced of this truth?
Pastor Zach instructs us from Luke 9.43-45 and 51-56. We are children of God!
When we look back on our lives, have there been seasons where our expectations led us to believe that God wasn't faithful, when in fact He had a greater plan than we could ever imagine in place all along? Pastor Zach gives us an illustration of God's faithfulness, pointing out that His timing supersedes ours. In Psalm 73 Asaph feels frustrated by his perception of God's faithfulness, but in verse 17 he receives clarity while in the presence of God.
Pastor Zach teaches us from Luke 8.22-25, reminding us of God's faithfulness to us even as we face trials. Do we allow our feelings to dictate the way we view our circumstances?

As we continue to discover how our Father is faithful, our Elementary Children's Program Director Ellen Shaub reminds us that we serve a faithful leader who was willing to experience life just as we do and to lead us by example in righteous living.

The church is charged by Jesus to make disciples throughout the Earth; how do we apply that today? Prayer is a major part of how we stay spiritually full ourselves, and Pastor Zach gives valuable insight into the importance of maintaining this key to seeing God's power released in our lives.
Every person desires to have a meaning for their lives- a mission to live and die for. In the marketplace of our world, the best seller in terms of looking for meaning is that of a self-created meaning. What makes you happy? What are you good at? What are you interested in? But those pathways for meaning, however popular they are, when tried end up crushing our souls. The weight and burden of needing to create your own meaning is more than we can stand. In coming to Jesus, we don't create a meaning or a mission, we inherit a mission that gives us meaning- a mission worth living and dying for!
