It doesn’t matter your age, gender, or the culture you grew up in—everybody is captivated by a good story.
There aren’t many rooms where we will laugh, cry, cheer, and boo with 100-plus strangers, but a movie theater is one of those. All of a sudden strangers become united around a common thing: Story. It makes sense then that Jesus would use an earthly story to help unite people around an eternal one, and that is what we hope to do through this series.
During our 4-week At the Movies series, we will explore the themes and meanings behind some of Hollywood’s biggest hits. Each week we’ll consider a different film and hear a powerful, biblical, and culturally relevant teaching to unpack spiritual truths for our lives.
So, mark your calendars and join us Sundays, October 8 – 29, for At the Movies!

We were not created to go it alone. We were made for community and for doing life together. God cares deeply how his followers value, treat, talk, and think about each other AND how his followers value, treat, talk, and think about people who are not followers of Jesus.
In this series we will look at four critical virtues that should be the guiding principles for how we relate to everyone around us: love, kindness, forgiveness, and peace. Each week will unpack what it is, why you would want it, and how you get it.
Join us Sundays, September 10 – October 1, as we learn how to live Side by Side!
From Strangers to Lifelong Friends
An Interview with Hope Swinter
What do you love about your small group?
HOPE: I love that no matter what’s going on with me – even if it’s a night that I don’t feel like going – God always speaks to me through different members of my group. Sometimes that looks like a person being transparent and sharing something about their story that happens to relate to something I’m going through as well. There are so many ways that God shows up. I love how I’m always surprised – we’ve got such a diverse group with people from all walks of life and experiences, and I always leave with something that helps me…
In our Everything’s Fine series, we discussed mental health, managing it, and caring for others going through a difficult time. And we have a ton of resources for you wherever you find yourself in your mental health journey or helping others through their own. Find everything from reducing anxiety, parenting children with mental health struggles, to managing crises.
SIDE BY SIDE: How to Be Kind
In this week’s message from “Side By Side,” Pastor Brian Hughes showed us how kindness is the treatment of another with respect, help, and care, regardless of how I’m being treated. In this weekend follow-up, Pastor Michael Hedrick discusses how kindness is a choice that we all get to make.
