Purposely Equipped: Cast of the Christmas Story
How often do we read the words in Luke or Matthew without really thinking about them? Sure, we know the basic story, but have we ever really looked at how God constructed it. So, this year, we read through the Christmas story as told by both Luke and Matthew and wrote down all the ‘characters’ we encountered in our reading. Over the next 13 episodes we will be talking about these characters and their importance in the Christmas story. We hope it will help you shine fresh eyes on Christmas and the beauty of how God wove it together.

Purposely Equipped: Experience Resurrection
Have you ever wondered what resurrection really means? If you look it up in the dictionary is says the act of restoring what was once dead to life. Being restored to life.
1 Corinthians 15:20-23 tells us “Christ has been raised from the dead. He is the first of a great harvest of all who have died. So you see, just as death came into the world through a man, now the resurrection from the dead has begun through another man. Just as everyone dies because we all belong to Adam, everyone who belongs to Christ will be given new life.”
Why is the resurrection important? Why do we care about Jesus coming back from the dead? How can you share this incredible news with those around you? Experience Resurrection is a 5-podcast series designed to help you with those questions! We partnered with pastors to dig deep as we all seek to grow our faith.
