Anxiety, Stress, Worry and Jesus

Anxiety, Stress, Worry & Jesus

Has your common response to the question “How are you doing?” become “Busy”? Our world is continually more and more restless and there are demands on your schedule and time that can seem slightly overwhelming at times and completely unbearable at others. For some, you may be continually plagued by worry–kept up at night by the thoughts of “what if” or the impending doom of a situation in your life. Rest may seem to evade you.

For this night, we will come together to talk about the rest we have in Jesus and how this reality allows us to truly rest. We will talk practically about the gift that Sabbath is to the Christ-follower and how this rich discipline helps to remind us of who we are, image God and reflect God’s peace to our restless world.

Our goal is for you to walk away with a biblical framework for rest and also a practical framework for applying the Gospel to your life in the area of anxiety, stress and worry.

Walk By The Spirit

EXPLORING HOW THE SPIRIT MAKES US MORE LIKE JESUS

In Galatians, Paul says: “walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh” (Galatians 5:16). The Holy Spirit is the person who opens spiritually blind eyes to see the truth and beauty of Jesus. This same Spirit raised Jesus from the dead and gives life to our bodies (Romans 8:11). This Spirit who dwells in us, testifies to the reality of what Jesus has done (Romans 8:16). He also works powerfully through his church, using various gifts to edify his church and point attention and affection to Jesus (1 Corinthians 12-14).

On this night, we will explore how the Spirit of God makes us more like Jesus as we prayerfully progress through the book of Galatians together. This public reading of Galatians will be accompanied by various moments of targeted and varied prayer around our tables.

The True Story


August 2017

We all are shaped by a story (or in reality, several stories). These stories can also be called “narratives” or sometimes even “worldviews”. They come to us through our family history, upbringing, our culture, our ethnic heritage, our friends, etc.–they shape us profoundly. Understanding the biblical story is of paramount importance. We invite you to join us as we take a look at this all-encompassing grand story that comes to us through the Bible and speaks of a good creation, a rebellion, a rescuer and a glorious future. This will equip you to better understand your Bible and to better relate to your neighbors, city and world.

Guest Speaker: Brian Berger

Brian is the Pastor of Communities at Redemption Church (Gilbert, AZ). He is a great friend and a wise leader.

Developing Habits to Express the Gospel

It is fairly safe to say that many of us desire to grow in our faithfulness to Jesus and our witness to the good news of what he has done. Often, when we think of being a witness we have large bold expressions of faith in our mind–talking about Jesus with a co-worker, giving a large amount of money to a mission, sacrificing a week and half to go around the world on a global trip. These expressions are good and we should take every advantage to express our faith in these ways, but more often than not, the regular day-to-day expressions of the Gospel are much more powerful–the way we talk with our kids, the tangible kindness towards a neighbor, sitting down over dinner with someone, listening to the pain of a stranger, taking a needed nap at the end of a long work week. More than grand gestures, faithfulness is more often doing small (and often overlooked) tasks well over a long period of time. On this night, we examined some of these Gospel-infused habits known as the Bless Rhythms.

Does Our Work Matter?


January 2017

Work is one thing to which you will give a majority of your life. For many, we find aspects of our identity within our work. When you meet someone for the first time, usually one of the first questions asked is: “What do you do?” Despite the massive amount of time given and identity found within work, we do not often consider the deeply biblical reasons for work. Does our work matter in terms of God’s redemptive work in creation? You may be surprised to discover the ways in which God works through you in your work.

This is a big statement: God works through our vocations. On this night, we will come together to learn more about the various vocations represented at Via Church and how we understand the work we do with our minds and hands in relation to God’s work in this world. So, whether your vocation is a stay-at-home mom, a sous-chef, a corporate executive or a plumber, come a discover the biblical significance of your work.
