We’ve been around in the Dayton, Ohio area for 30 years. We’ve gone from being a small group of people meeting in a school to a church of 5,000 people (and counting). And now we think it’s time to go back to school. We’re ready for God to do something new here and we want you in on it. 

We exist to help de-churched...

For the next few months around SouthBrook, we are going to be gearing up to launch our Liberty Campus down the road.  Our first Sunday service will be on Easter in the Lakota East Freshman Building.

In many church traditions, the season between now and Easter is marked by Lent, a 40-ish day season of prayer and fasting to prepare for Easter....

During the week after New Year, many church traditions celebrate the Feast of Epiphany.  It's a way to celebrate the moment the Magi visited Jesus and how God revealed himself to Gentiles.  In some ways, it's also a moment to celebrate any moment when God shows up and something becomes infinitely clearer than it was before.

From his very first days, Jesus shows us what it's like to move around in a dangerous world in a wise and peace-filled way.  His life is a mix of security and adventure.  He shows us what it means to live with both assurance and faith, with some elements known and some unknown.

But it's vital to understanding the...

This Christmas season, we're facing the tension that is similar to the kind they faced during the birth of Jesus.

If you haven't read the gospel of Luke before, this is a great week for it.  As you heard from Joe this weekend, Luke pays special attention to what it means to live faithfully in shared space with shared resources.  

If you want to just pick a few stories this week, here are some of the highlights:
