The gap between the church and the culture is widening. It's time for those who call themselves Christ Followers to truly live out the words of Jesus that are printed in red. In this message series on the Sermon on the Mount, we will see just how different Jesus was asking those who follow him to be.  He calls us away from the rationalizing consumer mindset that so influences us today. Ghandi once said, "Everbody in the world knows what Jesus was teaching in those verses- except Christians!" Is he right?

Starting a race is the easy part, finishing well takes effort, strategy, correction and so on. So it is in the Christian life, usually in getting started there is momentum but as time passes it is easy to drift off course and become ineffective in your faith. In this series, Life on Purpose, we will cover the 5 fundamentals that must be in place to ensure a life that is well spent. To ignore them is to ensure a crash sooner or later. The 5 fundamentals are God, Health, Finances, Relationships and Work. Hope this series will inspire you to purposefully move forward in faith.

Christmas time is a time to celebrate the entrance of the Incarnate God into the messy affairs of mankind. Join us as we uncover the four continuous applications for this marvelous event in history.

Baggage, we all have it and we are not talking about the type you check at the airport. The baggage we will be opening is the cultural baggage that we all must deal with as we live our lives in this century. It is hard, no impossible, to escape the influence of our culture and the result is we each have our own baggage we bring on this trip called life. In the first 3 chapters of Paul's letter to the church in Rome he speaks to the culture we live in and to us on how we should live in it. I think you'll find not much has changed, but hope in Christ reigns supreme!

It's important what's underneath.
Journey with us as we explore what the church looks like when the facade is stripped away. Does what's on the outside match what's at the core of who we are? Is the church the Bride of Christ, perfect without spot or blemish? And what does that mean for us, the people who make up the church? If we stripped away the nice stage and lights and music and trendy clothes - who are we as the Naked Church?

In our current weekend worship series, From Here to There, we are discovering who God has called us to be as a church. Where are we now? Where are we going? What has The Father called us to do and be as a unique expression of His love and character right now in our community? Join us in this journey as we explore what it will take for us to get from here to there...

What would it look like if Jesus walked the streets of 21st Century Searcy, AR. How would he pray, what would it look like for Him to share the Gospel, and how would He respond to the pressing social issues in White County? If the church is the hands and feet of Jesus, join us Sunday as we consider what we should be doing as individuals to live out the life of Christ.

The writer of Hebrews tells us that "we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses." Men and women who have gone before us persevering in the faith and running the race with single mindedness. Their stories inspire us to throw off the sin that so easily entangles and run with perseverance the race marked out for us. We hope this series will be a catalyst in your own journey with Christ.

 

How important is growth? What does it take to grow? Does it just happen naturally? Come find out!

As we continue on with the Memorize series, we are taking some key scriptural truths and returning to the spiritual discipline of commiting these truths to memory, hiding them in our hearts, and asking God to plant them in the deepest part of who we are. As God’s word takes root in our lives, we will find that life and growth will will continue to increase.

As followers of Christ our lives are to be spent living out the gospel message. It should first take root in our hearts but then influence how we relate to others we interact with on a daily basis. Ultimately it should go global in how we view/reach out to the world. In this series we will take a practical look at what it means to live a gospel centered life.

The scriptures show us that there are times when the Lord takes his body through stretching times. It is true for us individually and corporately as a church. These are times when faith trumps fear, peace trumps anxiety and spiritual battle is heightened. The Crossing Project is our time of faith at Fellowship. In this series we will unveil Israel's crossing of the Jordan River and what the Lord had in store to teach them and us as we exercise our faith in different but similar circumstances.

Topics of general interest.

The Gospel Project is a Christ-centered series that examines the grand narrative of Scripture and how the gospel transforms the lives of those it touches. The Bible is so much more than just a collection of stories with moral applications. In this series we hope to see how the Bible is one story of the redemption of Jesus and how it is weaved through the Old and New Testaments.
