“Parables of Jesus”- Week 2

Parables Of Jesus: “The Good Samaritan” – Joey Todd

In this series – “Parables of Jesus” – we’re spending 4 weeks teaching on what Jesus taught through the stories that Jesus told. Jesus often used short, simple stories called parables to teach those around Him. It was through these stories that Jesus would not only teach a moral or spiritual lesson, but ultimately reveal and challenge people’s hearts!

Night of Communion

Night of Communion – Clay Everett

For the final service of the 2015 Fall Semester we celebrated in taking communion together! It was an awesome time to remember all that Jesus has done for us and to declare our dependence on Him still today!

Night of Baptism

Night of Baptism – Zack Hamby

In this very special service we celebrated in baptism with 3 of our students! As a public declaration of faith in Jesus and commitment to following Him, baptism is an important moment. But baptism also represents the work that God has done, to bring us from death to life. That’s something worth celebrating!

“Where Are You Now?”- Week 3

Where Are You Now?: “When We See God” – Mike Ashcraft

We often come to God when things start to go wrong in our lives, whether it be in our relationships, school, family, or work. But how we come to God determines our ability to see what He is doing. Too often we come desiring only His blessings, but God desires a different approach. God invites us to come to Him desiring a relationship with Him, to simply know Him better. It’s when we see God for who He is and what He is doing that we can trust Him, live freely, and give life to others!

“Where Are You Now?”- Week 2

Where Are You Now?: “In The In-Between” – Mike Ashcraft

We often think that the process of getting from where we are to where we want to be should be a smooth journey. However the reality is that the in between is often full of ups and downs, and how we respond in these moments determines how we perceive what’s happening around us. Trusting that God works just as much in our pain as our pleasures is key to understanding where you are, and what God might be doing in that place!

“Where Are You Now?”- Week 1

Where Are You Now?: “What In The World” – Mike Ashcraft

When bad things happened to us, or around us, we often respond with a question like, “What in the world is going on?” We want answers for why bad things happen to good people. And we often demand to know why bad things happen to us. The Old Testament book of Job teaches us that the better question to ask is, “What in heaven is going on?” This begins to shift our perspective and directs our attention to the One who has the answers. Learn more about this from last week’s service at Overflow!

This past Tuesday, we also announced that we would love to address any questions you might have (about pain and suffering in life) throughout the rest of this series. If you have questions you would like to share anonymously, please use the following link:

“For Mature Audiences Only”- Week 2

For Mature Audiences Only: “Maturity” – Stuart Hall

As we grow up life and by the time we get to college we desire to be mature enough to handle our freedom. But many of us don’t understand what maturity is really all about. We define maturity as freedom from any responsibility to anyone or anything, or not being subject to anyone or anything. The truth is that maturity begins when we commit ourselves to something and built our lives around it! The question is have you committed your life to anything? And if so, to what or whom?

“For Mature Audiences Only”- Week 1

For Mature Audiences Only: “Freedom” – Stuart Hall

There is something inside each of us that desires so badly to be free. It starts from birth and continues into adulthood. From wanting freedom from diapers to freedom from tyranny…in never ends. Many of us come to college ready to explore our new found freedom. We start to believe that staying free and keeping our options open will satisfy us, but we soon find that the very things we pursue in our freedom in up enslaving us! But what if true fulfillment in life doesn’t come from protecting our freedom, but from ending it?

“The List”- Week 3

The List: “What We Need To Love” – Wade Morris

We all have different passions in life. Some of us love to surf, to write, playing music, playing sports, drinking coffee, or just spending time with friends. The truth is that passion is a powerful thing. What we love ultimately drives what we do and what we accomplish in life. So we’ve got to ask ourselves:  what are we most passionate about in life? For Christians, Jesus should be our ultimate passion, allowing Him to define and direct everything else!
