May 22, 2022


OneLife Students Summer Kick-off Night - May 25
On Wednesday night, May 25 at 7:00pm, our middle and high school students from both campuses will come together at our East Campus for our Summer Kick-off night! There will be food, epic games, and a big reveal of our theme for the summer. Rising 6th graders, you’re invited to attend as well!

Micro Church Sunday - May 29, One Service at 10am
Next Sunday, May 29 we will be having one service at 10am for “Micro Church Sunday”. Our Micro Churches will be meeting in homes that day for the service, and our campuses will be open for anyone that’s not currently in a Micro Church. At the campus you’ll sit around tables and get to know people, have a time of worship, and listen to the sermon - which will be in more of a conversational format. Childcare will be available at the campuses as well.

The Tour - June 12

Stay after the service in the auditorium on June 12 for a 15 minute meet ‘n greet that we call “The Tour.” We’ll have some light snacks and refreshments, take a tour around the facility, learn more about why we do many of the things we do, and - most importantly- give you a chance to meet some people! Just look for the sign that says “The Tour.” And if you have kids, they can remain in Kid City until The Tour is over.


If you’ve given your life to Jesus but haven’t gone public with your story through baptism then it’s time to take that step! Click here and we’ll help you get started.

BOTTOM LINE: Owning my faith is the difference between dead faith and powerful faith.

Matthew 16:13-14 NLT

13 When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “Who do people say that the Son of Man is?” 14 “Well,” they replied, “some say John the Baptist, some say Elijah, and others say Jeremiah or one of the other prophets.”

1. Popular opinion can't be trusted.

Matthew 16:15 NLT
15 Then he asked them, “But who do you say I am?”

2. Jesus wants me to own my faith.

Matthew 16:16 NLT
16 Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.”

3. Ownership requires boldness and clarity.

Matthew 16:17 NLT
17 Jesus replied, “You are blessed, Simon son of John, because my Father in heaven has revealed this to you. You did not learn this from any human being.

4. Hearing from God for myself is personal faith. Only hearing about God from someone else is their faith - not mine.

Matthew 16:18 NLT

18 Now I say to you that you are Peter (which means ‘rock’), and upon this rock I will build my church, and all the powers of hell will not conquer it.

5. Personal faith in Jesus makes me part of an unstoppable movement.
