What is "Ground Zero"? Typically we use this term to describe a site of devastation or disaster, but it can also just simply be something's starting point. In today's message, we'll take a look at someone in the Bible, named Zacchaeus, who's life was characterized by rejection and brokenness and we'll see how Jesus enters into that life to redefine it with welcoming and completeness. Ultimately we'll learn that we are all just like Zacchaeus, that Jesus is here for us too, and all are welcome.

What kinds of New Years resolutions do you make? How are you doing with them so far? If you made a resolution regarding your faith, how has that been going? Studies show that if you want to build a solid foundation of faith, the most significant thing you can to is read your Bible on a regular basis. But that can be problematic for many of us, because the Bible seems so unapproachable or we are too busy or it's to complicated to understand. In today's message, we'll see some ways we can remove some of those obstacles and enjoy the benefits of reading the Bible regularly. One great resource is a reading plan from The Bible Project called, "The Bible". You can find this reading plan on the YouVersion Bible app, or at the following link: bible.com/r/1Fk

Whether you believe in Jesus or not, what are your initial feelings about sharing your faith? For many people the thought of sharing faith, or having faith shared with them, is uncomfortable and generates feelings of anxiety. Can you relate? In today's message we'll consider some ideas about what it means to fulfill the great commission and "go make disciples". We'll first take a look at the meaning of the word "disciple", then take a look at ourselves, then take a look at the invitation God gives to us to first experience the hope and grace and truth of His gospel in our own lives.
