Current SeriesBreathing Room

We all feel the stress of living at the limits of life.  Our schedule, boss, relationships, and money seem to dictate how we live our lives.  We may outwardly celebrate our ability to handle so much, but deep down we are searching for some breathing room. Join us as we help you understand principles of living our lives with space and trusting God for the rest.

3rd Birthday: Leaving a Legacy

Celebrating our past reminds us of God's faithfulness.  This inspires us to continue the sacrifice of others and follow His calling on us to impact and lay a foundation for the future.

Easter 2018: The Unexpected Story of Easter.

Following Christ is not about personal expectations of religion, its about why we celebrate Easter.  The foundation of our faith are not the circumstances of our lives or whether we have answers to the problems we face, but from the unexpected story we find at Easter. Listen below to our Easter message from April 1, 2018.

March Series: Faith

We ended our Why Jesus series with the question:  Are you following?  But taking that step of faith can be hard...  Going from what you know in your head to believing in your heart.  In everyone's faith journey, there is a place where we take the leap.  Explore what that means during our 3 week series leading up to Easter.

February Series: Why Jesus

You've heard about Jesus, the Christmas story, and about his death and resurrection.  But, what about his life?  His teaching?  Ever wonder why he lived among us, for over 30 years?  Join us on Sundays for a deeper look into the life and words of Christ. Whether you have questions or have followed Christ for many years, this is a series for you.   


Guardrails-church-jersey-city.jpg

January Series: Guardrails

While no one disputes the need for guardrails on our bridges and roads, culture usually mocks us for guardrails in our lives.  But, the path to less regret is paved with financial, moral, relationship and professional guardrails in our lives.  Each week of this five week series will bring practical guidance for now and the future.

December Series: Crashing Christmas

At Christmas Time we often hear words like Peace, Love, and Joy.  Despite the constant reminder of this, many times we question whether Christmas really brings peace to our lives.  Surprisingly enough, those in the Christmas Story had the very same questions.  The answer of Hope and Peace isn't always what it seems. This December we Crash Christmas. 


Unstoppable-church-jersey-city

November Series:  An Unstoppable Force

An Unstoppable Force

As the church burst onto the scene after Christ’s resurrection it seemed that no matter what came against it, it was an unstoppable force for good and love.  It changed lives, turned cities upside down, broke down barriers of oppression that seemed they would last forever.  It was an unstoppable force.

What was it that allowed the early church to impact with such gravity?  What was it that allowed them to change the world forever?  Join us as we look at what it would take for us to move with courage in becoming an unstoppable force for good and love! Sunday's at The Underground at 10:30 AM.

October 2017:  Transformed

The world around us is challenging. Often the stress of our lives, the problems in our city, nation and world seem to overwhelm and leave us without hope.  This doesn't have to be the case.  Join us as we look at the book of 1st Peter and see a letter written to those who felt hopeless, and how we can be encouraged today. Sunday's at The Underground at 10:30 AM.

Light of the World:  December 4th, 11th, & 18th. 

What do you do when the magic and wonder of the Christmas season feels out of reach? We want it to be the most wonderful time of the year, but past experiences, relationships, and problems around us can sometimes make it feel the opposite.  

No matter your circumstances, Christmas can also be a reminder of the light that overcomes the darkness.  Join us for this 3 week series concluding with a Christmas Service on December 18th. 


This Fall with "Choice" we will discuss four big choices many of us don’t know we’re making. It’s easy to focus on smaller choices, but making these decisions really set the framework for who we are.   There might be more on the line than you thought when you make a choice.
