In the creation story, we see that God rested on the seventh day because His work was finished and good. This rhythm of rest is exampled by God for each of us, that we would find time in our busy schedules to slow down and acknowledge we are not God of our lives. This Sunday, Pastor Jon Laurenzo shares the importance of Sabbath for the follower of Jesus and how carving out time to stop, rest, delight, and worship shapes the way we approach our circumstances.
New Yorkers are not known for being silent or having much time alone, but we’re called to be still and know God in the solitude. Today, lead pastor Josh Kelsey preached on six reasons we need the spiritual practice of silence & solitude. Join us as we step deeper into this practice this week—learning to stop doing, stop producing, stop pleasing people, stop entertaining, stop obsessing, to simply stop and rest that we might know God more deeply.
When we slow down, we create intentional space to hear from God. This Sunday, lead pastor George Kelsey preached from John 15, reminding us to abide and connect with the Father like the vine & the branches. In the gospels, Jesus often withdrew from the crowds to meet with the Father, and as we model our lives on His during this Practice series, we’re encouraged to cultivate a slowed-down spirituality that matches the Jesus’ pace.
What is true repentance? At ALLIN on Wednesday, Pastor Josh Kelsey challenged us to surrender our hearts and turn back to God through fasting, weeping and mourning. In this season of Lent, may we be a people who seek God in repentance and believe for revival.
In Luke 11, Luke puts a great emphasis on prayer before something happens. Jesus doesn’t just give the disciples words to say, he shows them his heart for communion with the Father. Prayer is talking with God, seeking communion and partnership. In this Sunday’s message, Pastor Jon Lorenzo continues our Practice series and gives us three points on how to shift our understanding of prayer so that our lives revolve around communion with God.
We live in a culture that worships pleasure, but the truth is that we can be surrounded by excess but left empty. When we fast, we choose to abstain from food in order to feast on the Lord. In the first Sunday of our Practice series, Pastor Jon Laurenzo shares why we fast and how this discipline can transform your life.
What is God’s wisdom and how do we find it? Awe se close out our Epiphany God’s wisdom is revealed in Jesus, and it’s not like the wisdom of the world. Counterintuitive and transformative, God’s wisdom is freely given to us in the mind of Christ. Through the cross, Jesus has redeemed your life for eternity. Trust his wisdom today to work through whatever circumstance you’re facing.
Our ALLIN message on Rhythms of Revival challenges us to think beyond our own desires and short-sigted dreams. Revival starts in us but moves around us and to the next generation. Preaching from Acts 5, Ps Jon encouraged us to allow prayer and seeking God to be the engine room of our church so that revival can flow through our city, for the people and the future of NYC.
Peace is fleeting for most. It can feel tangible for a brief time, but it comes and goes. But Jesus says he gives us his peace. It was Jesus’s mission to bring peace into our world. This Sunday in our Epiphany series, Pastor Josh shared on Jesus as our Prince of Peace, reminding us that the greatest thing you can set your vision on is Jesus.
The Bible is a story about Jesus. From Genesis to Revelation, it points toward God’s ultimate plan of God’s people being reunited with him through his son, Jesus. In this Sunday’s message, Jon Laurenzo teaches about Jesus as the one who God appointed to save humanity. Jesus is the one the prophets spoke about in the Old Testament, and he is the reason we are able to participate in covenant relationship with God today.
With all the hustle of Christmas, we can lose touch with its true meaning. This Sunday’s message from Pastor Josh Kelsey, “Why Christmas?” reminds us of the importance of Christ’s birth and the love poured out as God stepped into humanity. God redeems, shows, forgives, and frees us. What good news this Christmas season!
No matter how many Christmases you’ve experienced, you can discover a new understanding of what Christ’s birth really means and what fresh outpouring of joy we can have in our lives. This Sunday, David Chan preaches from Luke 2 and reminds us to find our true joy not in the world but in Christ.
Where is your hope anchored? In this Sunday’s message, Lead Pastor Josh Kelsey kicks off our Advent series with a message on the hope that is unseen—our hope in Jesus Christ. Pastor Josh gives us three things that make up the hope we have in Jesus, an anchor that we can rely on and remind us of the peace that comes in Jesus.
