Trusting God is not a one-time decision, it is a daily posture. As we continue the series "Trusting God With..." Lead Pastor Scott Hodge guides us through the issue of trusting God with our doubts.

April 8 & 9, 2017: Lent - Palm Sunday
Teaching by Scott Hodge.

This weekend we begin Holy Week with Palm Sunday, the day we remember Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem. Lead Pastor Scott Hodge draws our attention to the contrast between Jesus' procession and the procession of Pontius Pilate and the Roman Empire that took place at the same time. We see the contrast between Pilate's kingdom of force, intimidation, and fear and Jesus' kingdom of love, compassion, and forgiveness; and Scott asks the question "which procession will we join?"

April 1 & 2, 2017: Lent - Week 5
Teaching by Scott Hodge.

Pastor Scott Hodge invites us to see the humanity amidst the divinity in this week's gospel reading from John chapter 11, the story of Jesus raising Larazus from the dead. When it comes to resurrection, we find that the story of Lazarus is not just about what did happen but what does happen and we find that God's presence is made known to us when God knows we need it the most.

March 25 & 26, 2017: Lent - Week 4
Teaching by Ben Hammond .

As we continue our Lenten journey, we read from John's gospel story (John 9:1-41) about Jesus giving the blind man sight and Ben Hammond challenges us to be among "those who know they don't see" by leading a life in which we constantly strive to recognize the humanity in others and offer everyone compassion, understanding, and grace.

March 18 & 19, 2017: Lent - Week 3
Teaching by Scott Hodge.

This week, lead pastor Scott Hodge takes a closer look at John's gospel story (John 4:5-30) of Jesus' encounter with the Samaritan woman at the well.

March 11 & 12, 2017: Lent - Week 2
Teaching by Tammy Helfrich.

This week, Tammy Helfrich continues the Lenten season by looking at Jesus' mountain top experience in Matthew's gospel. Through this story we find that while mountain top experiences can be wonderful, disorienting, and fleeting, they ultimately prepare us, heal us, and equip us for what we were meant to do and lead us to become who we were created to be.

March 4 & 5, 2017: Lent - Week 1
Teaching by Scott Hodge.

This past weekend marked the beginning of Lent - the forty day season that leads up to our Easter celebration. To begin our Lenten journey, Pastor Scott Hodge explored the importance of being rooted in our identity as God’s Beloved, and how that can empower us to overcome the three universal temptations Jesus faced in the wilderness: the temptation to say, “I am what I DO”, “I am what I HAVE” and “I am what OTHERS THINK.”

February 4 & 5, 2017: Epiphany - Week 5
Teaching by Tammy Helfrich.

Tammy concludes the Epiphany series with thoughts on the gospel reading from Matthew in which Jesus calls us to be the salt of the earth and light to the world. Tammy explains how we are invited to be hope and life to others and how, when we become the people we were created to be, we lead others toward God.

January 28 & 29, 2017: Epiphany - Week 4
Teaching by Mark Miller.

Our friend Mark Miller visits the Orchard and continues the message of Epiphany. Mark talks about the transformation that occurs when we awaken to the reality that there is something bigger going on and that we want to be a part of it; and it is then that God places a deposit in us that ensures us that now we don't have to worry about death, and life can happen through us.

January 21 & 22, 2017: Epiphany - Week 3
Teaching by Larry Boatright.

This week, our friend Larry Boatright visits the Orchard and continues the message of Epiphany. Larry dives into the idea that God shows up in unexpected places to call unexpected people to do unexpected things and gives us a few suggestions for how we can be open to God's plan.

January 14 & 15, 2017: Epiphany - Week 2
Teaching by Tammy Helfrich.

The word Epiphany can mean an unveiling, revealing, manifestation, or appearance. This week, Tammy speaks about the question posed to us by Jesus in chapter 1 of John: "What do you want?" We have been created with desires placed there by our Creator and our assumption shouldn't always be that our desires are contrary to God's. Tammy helps us realize that part of our journey is opening ourselves up to asking and discovering what those desires are.

January 7 & 8, 2017: Epiphany - Week 1
Teaching by Scott Hodge.

The Epiphany is the story of the Magi visiting the Christ child. Through the journey of the Magi, we are reminded of a question all of us have faced and continue to face in our lives: "how do we find our way?" In times of uncertainty, one of the things that can never be taken away is our ability to chose how we are going to travel on our journey and Scott encourages us to be mindful of our posture on our faith journey.

The Epiphany is also a reminder to the church that Christ came for all. Saint Paul's letter to the Ephesians reminds us that both Gentiles and Jews, insiders and outsiders, "stand on the same ground before God. They get the same offer, same help, same promises in Christ Jesus. The Message is accessible and welcoming to everyone, across the board."

TOC-026_Advent_Logo(to download, right/command-click the “download” link, then click “download linked file as…”)

Advent is a season of preparation, reflecting back, looking ahead and being thankful for what is right in front of us.

December 17 & 18, 2016: Advent - Week 4
Teaching by Tammy Helfrich.

In the final week of Advent, we take a closer look at the story of Mary and Joseph and the courage it took for them to obey the will of God. Tammy reminds us that obedience doesn't always look like what we image it might look like and that courageous acts of obedience are always preceded by much smaller acts of obedience.

December 10 & 11, 2016: Advent - Week 3
Teaching by Scott Hodge.

In the third week of Advent, Scott speaks about the tension in waiting and the tension between the idea of perfect Shalom and the world we actually live in. It is in between the hopes for the future and the shortcomings of reality that we are driven to embrace the Advent mantra, "Come, Lord Jesus." We are encouraged to be patient especially in times of uncertainty and we are pushed to trust that there is something vital and important happening in the interim. Advent is an opportunity to turn our eyes toward the horizon with expectation but also to be present to the opportunity in front of us; to not just look and hope for Shalom but to be Shalom-makers in our lives.

December 3 & 4, 2016: Advent - Week 2
Teaching by Scott Hodge.

This weekend Scott dives into our Gospel reading from Matthew about John the Baptist preparing the way for Christ. Scott also explains the complexity of "Shalom" as meaning more than just peace, but also connectedness, wholeness, and union; and how, in this season of hope, our longing for Shalom in all aspects of our lives challenges us to prepare the way for Christ.

“We are all addicted in some way. When we learn to identify our addiction, embrace our brokenness, and surrender to God, we begin to bring healing to ourselves and our world. In Breathing Under Water, Richard Rohr shows how the gospel principles in the Twelve Steps can free anyone from any addiction—from an obvious dependence on alcohol or drugs to the more common but less visible addiction that we all have to sin.” -Breathing Under Water synopsis

November 26 & 27,2016: Breathing Under Water - Week 12
Teaching by Scott Hodge.

This weekend we conclude the series "Breathing Under Water" with the 12th step, "Having had a spiritual awakening as a result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to others, and to practice these principles in all our affairs." Scott explains how our journey so far has prepared us for a spiritual awakening and how carrying the message of the 12 steps to others leads to healing within ourselves. We also conclude this series with a liturgy of Thanksgiving.

November 19 & 20, 2016: Breathing Under Water - Week 11
Teaching by Scott Hodge.

This weekend we continue our "Breathing Under Water" series by exploring Step 11 of the 12 Steps: "We sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out." Step 11 is about letting go of our attachments, self-image, expectations, and judgements. Scott guides us through a short centering prayer after explaining that contemplative prayer is all about quieting our hearts and moving beyond words in order to be able to rest in the presence of God.

November 12 & 13, 2016: Breathing Under Water - Week 10
Teaching by Tammy Helfrich.

This week, Tammy continues our series by discussing the 10th step: "We continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it." This step reminds us to own our failure and look at ourselves and our shortcomings with truth and curiosity, instead of judgment.

November 5 & 6, 2016: Breathing Under Water - Week 9
Teaching by Scott Hodge.

This weekend we study Step 9 of the 12 Steps: "We made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others." This step reminds us that when you begin to experience the love, acceptance, and grace of God, it changes you.

October 29 & 30, 2016: Breathing Under Water - Week 8
Teaching by Scott Hodge.

This weekend we continue our "Breathing Under Water" series by exploring Step 8 of the 12 Steps: "We made a list of all persons we harmed and became wiling to make amends." We are challenged create an honest inventory of who we have hurt and how we have hurt them as well as to contemplate the reasons we hurt others as we move toward the ultimate goal of forgiveness.

October 22 & 23, 2016: Breathing Under Water - Week 7
Teaching by Scott Hodge.

This week, we study the seventh step, "We humbly ask God to remove our shortcomings." We usually think we want God to remove our defects, but we’re often afraid of what it would mean if God actually did remove them. Scott encourages us to see that humility frees us to love and accept ourselves as we are.

October 15 & 16, 2016: Breathing Under Water - Week 6
Teaching by Scott Hodge.

This week sees us examining the 6th step, "We are entirely ready to have God remove all of the defects of character." Scott asks us what is holding us back from accepting God's healing and makes clear the distinction between our role and God's role in our healing.

October 8 & 9, 2016: Breathing Under Water - Week 5
Teaching by Tammy Helfrich.

The series continues with Tammy speaking about the fifth step which says, "We admitted to God, to ourselves and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs." Through this step, we come to understand that we encounter God's love and see ourselves better through others; we are reminded that the restorative nature of confession allows us to come to maturity through the community to live a transparent life free of sin and addiction.

October 1 & 2, 2016: Breathing Under Water - Week 4
Teaching by Scott Hodge.

In the fourth week of the series "Breathing Under Water," we transition from deciding to change, which was explored in the first 3 steps, into how we actually go about that change. The fourth step states "We made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves" and Scott reminds us that we can not heal what we do not acknowledge.

September 24 & 25, 2016: Breathing Under Water - Week 3
Teaching by Scott Hodge.

In the third week of the series "Breathing Under Water," Scott continues to explore the idea and practice of surrender; how we often mistake sacrifice for surrender, and how our understanding of God influences our ability, or lack thereof, to surrender.

September 17 & 18, 2016: Breathing Under Water - Week 2
Teaching by Scott Hodge.

This week, Scott continues the series "Breathing Under Water" by exploring the idea of faith and surrender as a journey, not just a moment, and how simple belief in God’s power can, as the twelve-steps say, "restore us to sanity.”

September 10 & 11, 2016: Breathing Under Water - Week 1
Teaching by Scott Hodge.

This week, Scott kicks off the series "Breathing Under Water" based on the best-selling book of the same name by Richard Rohr. Scott asks us to consider what things in our lives we are powerless over and sheds light on how Jesus' paradoxical message of "surrendering to win" can transform our lives.
