What are the most common issues and questions that keep people from faith in Jesus? What issues act as barriers instead of bridges to faith and community? This month we’ll be talking about 5 issues that author and pastor Mark Clark identifies in his book The Problem of God, and addressing with the hope of helping all of us – skeptic and believer alike – understand our faith better!
Jesus often said, “He who has ears to hear, let him hear.” What are you listening to this Christmas season? There are plenty of sounds everywhere we go – Christmas music, commercials, deals, the voices of family and friends…but in the din of all the holiday noise, are we missing the Voice that our hearts truly need to be hearing? This Christmas we will talk about the message of Christmas we all NEED to hear: The voice of a Savior who offers you Significance, Hope, and Love.
Is it hard for you to relate to a God you can’t see? Have you ever struggled to feel close to God? Maybe you were taught at some point that faith was mostly about just “being good.” Or maybe you were told to “just believe” even if you had questions you didn’t understand. Those comments just aren’t satisfying the desire you feel for something more, something life changing, something that answers that deep curiosity and longing in your heart. This series we will discuss five practical life practices that can help to close the distance between us and God.
Parenting Matters Seminar
Parenting young kids is one of the most challenging things we do in life. Ever feel like you’d like to have some advice? Maybe a few helpful pointers? This night we had lots of fun and also heard three ‘TED Talk’ style talks about practical advice for parenting young kids. If you’ve got kids, we think these three talks will be encouraging and helpful!
Fear is inevitable. We all face it – sometimes daily! Starting a new job. Ending a relationship. Trying something new. The safety of your kids. Your future. Financial insecurity… Breathing harder yet? We want to do more than just get by in life right? But fear often stands in the way! If this resonates with you, we invite you to join us this fall as we face our fears together, and learn how to be brave.
People are searching. What will they find when they look to you? You have a story and someone desperately needs to hear it. You have a story worth sharing. And it all begins and ends with how we treat one another.
Like thousands of others who saw The Greatest Showman, we were moved by the songs and themes of the movie: Dreaming big. Not settling for less. Discovering what’s important in life. Grappling with the desire for more that we all feel at times. Facing rejection. Feeling like an outcast. Overcoming your past. Join us as we discover together God’s hope that we each live The Greatest Life!
This summer, thousands of people will pack into theaters to watch make-believe heroes do impossible things.The movies have made heroes seem completely untouchable. If you want to be a hero you need to have special powers, maintain a secret identity, have some horrible crisis in your past, and wear clothing that is way too tight. But these heroes actually do no one any real good in the real world. To be a real hero – to make a difference in the real world – is actually much more attainable. In fact, hidden inside us all, is the potential to be Everyday Heroes.
Jesus tells us it is “better to give” – but is it, really? These three weeks we’ll explore what generosity is, the benefits of being a generous person, and how to be generous on a regular basis.
Questions about God and faith range from the big existential ones, to the intimate personal ones, and everything in between. During this series we are going to address some of the questions people at CityLight have submitted. While we know we can’t answer them all fully, we hope to bring some light and hope from Jesus to these important questions.
