Archives For Series

Every year, we look forward to the BIG blockbuster summer movies! That’s because there’s something about the power of a story that inspires us to be more than we are. This time out, there’s action, adventure, drama, comedy, and animation. At The Connection Church, we always have a lot of fun by leveraging the movies people are already watching and looking behind them to find out what God would say about these themes. We’ve actually discovered that not only does our church grow throughout the summer months, but that people grow in their faith through this series too. No, we’re not actually teaching the movies, we’re teaching God’s Word and how you can get to know Him better and live the life He in store has for you. We also have a free snack bar where you can get fresh popcorn and sodas so you’re fully alert and ready to hear a life-impacting message, and it won’t cost you an arm and a leg.

I want to personally invite you to be our guest for this exciting new message series as we look behind the movies to discover timeless truths about how to have a better life, stronger relationships, and get to know God in a deeper way.

It’s Time to Man Up

May 29, 2014


When you think about what a real man is, many images come to mind. Things like muscles, money, and motors. These are all common conceptions of manhood. But the question still remains, “what does it mean to be a real man?” In our new 3-week summer series called MAN UP that kicks off this Sunday, we’re going to be looking at what God has to say about manhood and how it makes a difference for both men and women.

We’ll discover that every man needs an adventure to live, a family to protect, and a battle to fight. This is going to change the pursuits of men who will start to live out God’s plan for them to reflect His image, and it will also open the hearts and eyes of women to see what drives men and understand how God has wired each one of us for something more!

This is going to be a great series to invite your family and friends to The Connection Church. I can’t wait to go on this journey with you and hope that you’ll be with us, because it’s time to MAN UP!

Who Will You Follow?

April 17, 2014

When it comes to social media, we ask the questions all the time, “Are you following them?” and “How many followers do you have?” When we choose to follow someone on Twitter or Instagram, it’s a pretty low commitment level. We get to keep up with what they’re up to and see their latest filtered pictures. And as soon as they something we disagree with, it’s an easy decision to click the unfollow button.

With Twitter, you’ve got to make your point in 140 characters or less. According to Vatican Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi, Jesus was the first person to tweet. Jesus said many memorable things using less words, but he packed them with powerful meaning.

But when Jesus calls us to follow Him, it’s a whole new level of commitment. In fact, Dietrich Bonhoeffer said, “When Christ calls a man, He bids him come and die.” While that call doesn’t always mean to physically give your life, it does mean to die to our old self-centered habits. It means our old life is gone and we live a brand new life in Jesus.

This weekend, we’re kicking off a new series at The Connection Church called #Follow all about those concise, but power-packed statements that Jesus said. We’ll be reading Jesus’ words and discovering the difference they make to us today when we choose to apply them to our lives.

On this Easter weekend, we’ve got 4 service times to choose from: Saturday at 5:30pm and Sunday at 9am, 10:30am & Noon. There’s no better time to begin to follow Jesus to the next level in your life than now! I can’t wait to see you there for what promises to be the biggest weekend of the year.

Not too long ago, the common consensus was that comics were uncool. I should know, because believe it or not, I was a bit of a comic book nerd as a kid. But today, it seems everyone has jumped on the superhero bandwagon. With a new comic based movie released about every other month, there is no shortage of heroes to go around.

But the one real-life hero that has changed my life is Jesus Christ! He displayed his super-powers by walking on water, feeding the masses, sacrificing himself to save the world, and his greatest feat: conquering death and rising from the grave!

This Sunday, March 30th, we’re kicking off our brand new message series: MARVEL at the Wonders of Jesus. As we get ready for the BIGGEST day of the year, Easter Sunday, we’re going to look closer at Jesus’ life and discover the powerful difference He can make in our life today. Each week will feature exclusive scenes from the blockbuster movie, Son of God.

I want to personally invite you to be with us this Sunday at 9am, 10:30am or Noon to be a part of this journey. This is the perfect series to bring along your friends and family so they can get connected with God. I’ll see you there!
