The man described in our text this week is subject to the highest of defilements: a Samaritan who was also a leper! It's a scandalous story because Jesus not only heals this man (along with 9 others) but then holds him up as an example of faith because of his response to Jesus.
Because we’re united to Christ we’re united to each other. However, the question remains: are we living out this unity? Join our middle and high school students as they explore this question as they lead us through worship.
We wrap up our series on Renewal this week by looking at the words of Jesus in Matthew 19, where Jesus speaks about the palingenesia (or, renewal) of all things. We’ll look at the fact that the Gospel is not just an internal message that changes each of us individually, but also is a message of Good News for the entire world.
This week, we welcome Eric Jacobsen as our preacher.Eric has much to teach us about how the church, even the bricks and mortar of the church facility and campus, can contribute to the flourishing of the city.
Join us this Sunday to see how God wants to renew us as Third Church. We’ll share about this vision for us broadly, but also share concrete ways we hope to live out this vision in the way we structure our church, and the way we organize our community and facilitate leadership.
We all have habits, character flaws, and negative patterns in our lives that we wish were different, and the new year seems like a good time to address them. But somehow we always end back in the same place again. Why? We'll kick off our new Renewal series this week looking at a passage from Titus, where we find the ultimate transformation we seek.
Listen to the fifth and final installment of our Advent series, Lo, He Comes! Corey preached on Isaiah 9:2-7 and the prophetic imagery of the Light.
Join us for the fourth Sunday of Advent, as we look at the imagery of the sign in Isaiah. This is the unexpected sign and gift of God to the world at Christmas. The baby. Emmanuel. God with us.
As we continue to look at the images of the Messiah described in Isaiah, this week we’ll looking at the Messiah as The Stream. We'll look at how this stream reminds us of hope in the midst of the deserts of our life.
Join us for the second week of Advent as we prepare our hearts for the coming King by looking at the Old Testament book of Isaiah. This week, we'll look at Isaiah 11:1-10, and "the shoot that will come from the stump of Jesse."
This Sunday we enter Advent, a season of preparation for welcoming the Christ Child at Christmas. During the four Sundays of Advent and on Christmas Eve we will meditate on passages from the prophet Isaiah. This Sunday we focus on “the mountain,” an image that points to God and His revelation.
This week, we welcome author of A Praying Life, Paul Miller, to speak with us. He'll be sharing on Luke 16:19-31, and Jesus's focus on the toxic danger of wealth without generosity.
This week we'll be looking at a passage from Luke 20, and together we will remind ourselves of our allegiance to Jesus and his Kingdom, and take up our call once again to be an embassy of his Kingdom in the world.
This week we’re beginning a short 3-week series called the Generosity of the King. We’ll be looking at three passages from the gospel of Luke that focus on Jesus' teaching about money, wealth, and generosity.
One of the pillars of Third Church is local and international missions. This Sunday we have the privilege of hearing from one of the missionaries we help support through The Outreach Foundation, Dr Sasan Tavassoli. Dr. Tavassoli is a former Shi’ite Muslim from Iran.
For the concluding week of our Explore God series, we'll look at the importance of having a personal knowledge of God, as well as how to begin and grow in that relationship.
We'll continue our Explore God series this week by looking at the question: is the Bible reliable? In many ways, the question of Jesus’ divinity is contingent on this question. Can this book be trusted? Can we believe what it’s saying about Jesus, about God, about the world?
This week we turn to look at the oldest question people asked about God. Even in ancient times, people rarely questioned the existence of God, nevertheless, they questioned the goodness of God. How could he possibly be a good God if he allowed such sorrow, pain, and senseless evil in the world?
This week we turn to the enormous question, “Is There a God?” All of us, whether we have grown up in the church or not, at some point or other have asked this question.
What’s the meaning of life? That is one of those paradigmatic “big questions” that people talk about in philosophy classes but one that we don’t think about much in daily life. This Sunday, we'll discuss this big question together.
This week to finish our 5-week series on parables, we’ll be looking at perhaps the most famous parable of all. This is the third of the “Lost Things" parables that Jesus tells in Luke 15: The Story of the Two Lost Sons.
In the parable of the four soils, Jesus displays the generous nature of God and the failing human responses. God sows His precious seed into our lives despite our hard hearts, shallow faith, and cluttered lives.
This week, we're looking at Luke 15, a very famous chapter in the book of Luke that includes three of the most well-known parables of Jesus. This week we’ll be looking at the first two: first, the parable of the lost sheep, and then second, the parable of the lost coin.
In our parable for this week -- the parable of the Seed and the Leaven-- Jesus explains that the Kingdom of God is indeed a force of power that can have dramatic impact in the world, but it is a small, unexpected, un-dramatic power. We'll explore the implications of this power in our lives, and how Jesus is the center of it.
