This Year's Spiritual Theme


All our fears, our anxieties, our temptations that we face, any ruler or authority, our possessions, the storms of life, our sin… 

Jesus is greater than our doubt, Jesus is greater than our past, Jesus is greater than our plans, Jesus is greater than our needs, Jesus is greater than death! 

We are excited about this upcoming summer and we can’t wait to focus on this amazing theme…Jesus is greater than! John 16:33  “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world, you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

In John Chapter 16, Jesus tells His followers that He is going to leave, knowing He is going to die. This brings the disciples great sorrow, then, of course, a sense of fear and anxiety begins to rush into their minds. The disciples understand that they will deal with struggles in this world and face great persecution. But did they truly understand that Jesus was about to die and the most tragic thing they have ever seen would play out right in front of them? How about you? Have you been surprised and devastated by something tragic? Or maybe you’re facing struggles with school, friends or home life. Jesus’ response to the disciples fear (and ours!) is to give them peace and assurance that He has overcome the world! There is no trial too great for Him, no hurdle He can’t surpass (big or small)…He is in control! Jesus then goes on a few chapters later to be crucified…but that’s not the end of the story! Jesus then defeats death by rising from the dead,  proving that He is God and He’s living and active today! Jesus is greater than! What does this mean for you!? Join us this summer as we answer that question and look at Jesus’ life and all that He overcame…for us!
