Summer Love

Most of us can remember what summer love was like; a crush at camp or a short-lived relationship with the cute guy or girl staying with a neighbor family for the summer. It was easy to fall in love, but staying in love was another question. In this day and age falling in love is painless, but why is it so painful to make it last? Is it even possible to make love last? We believe it is! This week we begin a four-part series to build our marriages. This series is not just for couples; it will set us up to win in all our relationships!

Week 1

Don't Miss It

Andrew Segre | July 9, 2017

Whether we realize it or not, we often view love as a destination. One that we arrive to, stay for a little while, and then leave. But what would happen if we changed how we view love from a place that we arrive to and instead see it as something more. In part one of Summer Love, Jesus shows us that love is a journey with one powerful principle...Don’t Miss it!

Week 2

Keep Dating The Model

Andrew Segre | July 17, 2017

Do you remember what it was like when you first started dating? There were things that you didn’t like but you did, simply because you were focused on making the other person happy? There were moments when you felt so valued, so pursued, and so honored?  Does that last? Can it last? Today, Apostle Paul shows us an incredible model that Christ demonstrated and if repeated can change our relationships for the good, forever.

The Real Story

Todd Gaston | July 23, 2017

It is so good to be back from my California family vacation. I want to thank Susan, Jerry, and Andrew for doing an amazing job teaching the church while I was away.Today, we continue our Summer Love series. Most social media posts will show nothing but highlight reels of summer bliss. Perfect couples, perfect moments. Nothing is wrong during the summer. But what’s really behind the posts? Have you ever compared your love relationships with everyone else’s social media highlights? Do you have a love that will make it past summer?
