We like “real” things. Words like off-brand, generic and knockoff all have a slightly negative feel to them. We want the genuine article, the real deal, the ‘based on a true story’ story. Authenticity resonates with us. We find it compelling. It’s no different when it comes to matters of faith. We want to invest our lives in the real thing. In 1 Kings 18, Elijah confronts people with a simple question: If God is real, isn’t He worth following?

All In - All In is our 3-year strategic plan to impact our community with the hope of Jesus. This series dives into our four initiatives – Connect, Invite, Serve, and Launch – how the Bible talks about them and how we are called to live them out. We hope you will be encouraged to continue participating in what God is doing here or maybe even get inspired to join in for the first time. Find out what it means to be “All In."

RAW - The Psalms give unique insight into the hearts and minds of regular people as they interact with God. The full range of human emotion is displayed, sometimes in ways that are more real than we expect. They show that God is big enough to engage with our every emotion, whether we feel grateful or angry, wonder or confusion, joy or pain. We don’t have to filter our feelings or clean ourselves up. We can come to God real and raw.

The Takeaway - Jesus tells a good story; the Bible is full of them. People learn best through stories, so He often shared timeless truth woven through a narrative. It was a purposeful way to communicate significant spiritual concepts in ways people understood and related to. Jesus’ goal wasn’t to entertain people. There was always something meaningful about the character of God and the hope of the good news that He wanted them to understand. What do we take away from these parables?
