Last Sunday, Rocket Barber kicked off our new teaching series "Empowered" which walks us through the Book of Acts and reminds us that Jesus' mission is for everyone. In this message, Rocket looks at two significant moments to living an empowered life: 1) that Jesus ascended, leaving his mission in our hands and, 2) that the Holy Spirit is given, reminding us that we are not alone in carrying our mission - offering real hope, giving real help and loving real people.

In this message from The Orchard: Asheville, Tim Bennett looks at the "lost" messages of Jesus - the Parable of the Lost Sheep, the Parable of the Lost Coin, and the Parable of the Lost Son - to remind us that God's Not Done with anybody! Whether "out of the house" or "in the house," God's desire is that all people live in relationship with Him

We've been saying that "Jesus is God changes everything." In this message, Rocket reminds us that "Jesus is God" means that our lives should not only reflect and imitate His life, but they should be committed to His mission. It's not enough for us to be concerned with our own "personal salvation" - the expectation is to share the love of Jesus with everyone we encounter.

Last Sunday, Travis continued our teaching series "The Holy Spirit" by asking the question, "Why do we live regular lives when we are invited to live supernatural lives?" He answered that question by preaching from Luke 3:21-22 & 4:1-14, focusing on the Holy Spirit's work in us.
This Sunday we had the privilege of hearing Pst. Chuck Frank (Director of Church Planting for the Eastern Region Churches of God) preach on the truth of God's mission and purpose for us - we were created to be extraordinary! Chuck reminded us that God has called us to do great things for him and shared with us some key principles for living out an extraordinary life.

We exist to help people share in the great story and mission of God by following the way of Jesus.
Our mission is accomplished when we give opportunities to continue the narrative of grace and redemption by giving real help, offering real hope, and showing real love to real people.
We live to tell the story of God, share in the mission of God, and expand the kingdom of God.
