What if the primary mission of the church is not to help the family, and the number one priority of the family is not to go to church?

Growth, accountability, belonging, and care happen in Community Groups . . . in circles, not rows. It’s easy to stumble away from faith when you are a nameless person sitting in a row on Sunday morning. But it’s almost impossible to stumble away, or to stay away, when you’re in community, doing life with a group of people. In this message, Rich reminds us that Jesus said stumbling blocks are inevitable. But pity those who fall and have no one to help them up. August 12, 2012

There are a myriad of reasons why people choose to give to charitable organizations. They want to make a difference in othersâ€™ lives. They want to fix a set of problems or resolve an unfortunate situation. They appreciate the tax breaks that accompany charitable giving. While these are all valid and noble reasons to give, is there a different motivating factor for Christians? In other words, are Christians called to be fixers? Or followers? October 23, 2011
Each weekend, thousands of people put on their Sunday best and make their way to church. But what about the church itself? What is the church trying to accomplish? What does it mean for the church to put on its Sunday best? September 11, 2011
We are a part of one of the most exciting stories in the history of the human race. It’s a story that has been unfolding for thousands of years and a story that is unlikely in almost all of its details. It’s the story of Christianity and how it has spread from a small band of followers to a religious movement that has gone to the ends of the earth. It’s a story that is not yet over and a story in which we have been called to play a significant part. Rich Barrett presents how you can be a part of this story. May 1, 2011
