What roles do you fill in life? Are you satisfied with your roles, or is something missing? In this message, we take a look at the spiritual gifts that God gives us and one of the ways He intended us to use them: as part of a team. This message introduces our series exploring different aspects of the identity God gave us.


we are people who say "me too" and "we gotcha" - sep 11, 2016

What do you think is the purpose for the local church? In this message, we take a look at a pattern Jesus modeled for us about God's purpose for the local church. We'll see how Jesus demonstrated encouragement and vulnerability in order to express grace and truth. Element is a community of people living out a "me too" (grace) and "we gotcha" (truth) culture.


we are people who rest well and trust jesus - sep 18, 2016

What does it mean to take a day off? Rest is an important spiritual command. It's even one of the Ten Commandments, but how well do we understand it? It's not permission to just be lazy, so how is "resting well" being more like Jesus? In this message, we'll take a look at rest as defined, and modeled, by Jesus.


we are people of honor - sep 25, 2016

If you use #blessed, what does it mean? Where do blessings come from, and what does blessing have to do with honor? In this message we'll take a look at the idea that all blessings come through relationships; with God and with others. Here at Element, we understand that Jesus calls us to be people of honor. Our decision to honor someone affects our level of blessing. So how can we write #blessed more, and what can I do in my relationships to become a person of honor?

What does it look like to do things with excellence? If it doesn't mean doing better than others, what else could it mean? In this message, we take a look at what it means for us in our relationship with God to pursue excellence.


we are people committed to the vision and we celebrate often - oct 9, 2016

Happy birthday Element! Today we celebrate our 1 year anniversary! In this message we take a look back at what God has done in and through Element over the past year as well as a look forward at how God is leading us in the year to come. We'll also remember what it means to trust God and celebrate often as we look at moments in the lives of broken and hurting people where they encountered Jesus and walked away completely restored.
