Drop the Mic | Timothy Lacy
August 5, 2018
From music to entertainment to media, power comes with a microphone. Whoever holds the mic has the authority, control, and ability to influence. In this message, guest speaker Pastor Timothy Lacy shows us how there is a microphone controlling our lives. The question is, who have we handed the mic to? Too many of us have a white-knuckle grip on the mic of our lives. But in order to get the most out of our family circus, we must allow God – the righteous Ringmaster – to take control!

He shows us the power and potential anger has when we when we use it the right way, and how it can actually help us become the people God wants us to be.
Family | Derric Bonnot
March 25, 2018
Every one of us comes from a family, whether it is a single parent home, a blended family, a traditional family, or something in between. In many ways, family defines our history, shapes who we are, and sets us on a trajectory in life. In this message, Derric Bonnot looks at some of the last words of Jesus and their focus on family.

Why? | Dr. John Cross
March 11, 2018
God never wants us to experience a life of pain and isolation, and he has done everything possible to ensure that never happens. Yet, there are times in our lives when we look at our situation and circumstances and ask, “Why?” It’s a question we ask when we are conflicted and confused. Yet, that simple question can unleash something powerful in our lives!

Your Best Mundane Life Now | Derric Bonnot
January 7, 2018
The beginning of every new year brings with it excitement and anticipation. As we look ahead, we see a horizon full of potential. At some point in the year, however, things calm down and expectations level out. Life’s routine begins again. But that doesn’t mean life shouldn’t still be exciting and full. In this message, Derric Bonnot reminds us that God has something great in store for us every day. And when we embrace the seemingly mundane, we may actually find the miraculous.
Removing Labels | Josh Shockey
December 31, 2017
At the end of every year, we have an opportunity to evaluate so many aspects of our lives. A look back over the last twelve months often helps us celebrate the high points and learn from the low points. But as great as looking back can be, God wants so much more for us than living in the past. He wants us to continue moving forward to make the most of the opportunities he has given to us. In this New Year’s Weekend message, we take a unique look on the potential and purpose God has for us as we move forward into 2018!
True Thankfulness | Derek Donley
November 26, 2017
So often we reserve thankfulness for a specific season of the year, or even just a single day. Thankfulness, though, is something God wants us to live out every day.

Because when we do, we will discover how to experience all God has for us every day.

Call on the Name | Dr. John Cross

How to Get “Unstuck” | Tianne Moon
July 30, 2017
Everyone has a list of needs, from the small to the significant. Maybe we need a job or a new place to live; maybe we need our health restored or wisdom for a decision we are facing. But what if what we really need is not even on our list – maybe we need to make a change. In this message by Tianne Moon, we discover the power of change and how getting “unstuck” could make all the difference.
Add This Name to Your Contacts | Derric Bonnot
July 23, 2017
The search for significance and meaning in life seems to be nonstop. Yet, what starts out as an exciting quest can often become an exhausting existence.

Lemonade Part 2 | Dr. John Cross
June 11, 2017
“When life hands you lemons, make lemonade.” That often-used phrase is one that we’ve all heard. But what does it take to make the best of a bad situation? How can we take something that is sour and make it sweet? In the second message of this two-part series, Dr. John Cross continues to show us God’s plan for us in the midst of difficult times. And he shows us that when we follow God’s recipe for lemonade, we discover the sweet taste of life God wants us to experience.
Lemonade Part 1 | Dr. John Cross
June 4, 2017
We’ve all heard the saying, “When life hands you lemons, make lemonade.” But if we are honest, when we’re handed those “lemons,” a cliché phrase like that can frustrate us more than anything else. We need more. The great news is God has what we need to make lemonade, and it’s more than just a pithy saying. In the first installment of Lemonade, John Cross shows us that no matter where you are in life – staring at unwanted lemons, in the process of making lemonade, or enjoying a glass of lemonade on the other side – God has some amazing things in store for our lives when we simply trust Him.
Memorial Day at Fellowship Church | US Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell
May 21, 2017
For more than 240 years, our nation has enjoyed freedom that came at a very high cost. Memorial Day is a special time to commemorate and remember those men and women who have bravely fought for, defended, and provided us with the security we have. It is a time to honor the sacrifices made to secure our freedom. But as we celebrate our democratic freedom, we can also celebrate the eternal freedom that is available through Jesus Christ!
For this Memorial Day experience, special guest and retired US Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell candidly shares the true price of the freedoms we all enjoy.
A Weekend with Dr. Robi Sonderegger | Dr. Robi Sonderegger

If you need emotional strength, you don’t want to miss this power-packed weekend!
Family Business: The Family is a University - Part 3 | Lisa Young
May 14, 2017
Education is a crucial aspect of life. From the classroom to the boardroom, we consistently and constantly learn. But academic or professional realms aren’t the only, or even the most important, areas where we can gain knowledge and education in life. Often, the family room has the greatest lessons. In this special Mother’s Day message, Lisa Young shows us how the family is a university, and how God’s plan for our lives requires us to learn things that can only be experienced first and foremost in the home.

This and That | Derric Bonnot
April 9, 2017
When it comes to Jesus, people often hone in on one characteristic or quality, and they convince themselves that they have figured Him out. But the reality is that Jesus is so much more than any of us ever imagines. In this message, Derric Bonnot helps us broaden our understanding of our Lord by showing us that He is never just this or that. Jesus is often this AND that!
Heating Up | Tianne Moon
April 2, 2017
Jesus was never one to pull any punches. He didn’t sugar coat His message or hide His purpose for our lives. Yet, so often, we grow complacent with where we are and try to avoid the challenges He provides. But the reality is that God wants each of us to get the most out of every moment we have, and oftentimes that requires us to step up and into the heat. The New Testament church in Laodicea faced that same decision. And in this message, Tianne Moon looks at their situation and shows us all how it applies as much today as ever. By bringing us all to the fire, Tianne helps us discover just what God has in store for us when He heats up our lives!
Doubting Faith | Ben Young
March 26, 2017
In our self-sufficient society, we think we need all the answers before we can believe something. After all, we’re told, if we doubt then our faith must not be real. Doubt is seen as a sign of weakness and indecisiveness. But the fact is we all have doubts. It’s simply part of life. In this message, special guest speaker Ben Young helps us discover the truth about our doubts. And we see that faith isn’t a fight against doubt. Instead, doubt can actually become an asset to strengthen our faith and our lives!
Financial Stewardship | Chris Brown
March 19, 2017
Throughout the Bible, Jesus talked about money more than He did about prayer, faith, or even heaven. Why? Because money is a crucial part of life and often has ahold of our hearts. What we do with it reflects our passion, and it often determines the path we take. In this special message, guest speaker Chris Brown from the Dave Ramsey Institute delivers a powerful message that reminds us of the power of money and the potential it has to help us experience God’s purpose and plan for our lives.
You Say You Want a New Year's Revolution: Part 6 - Yesterday | Guest Dave Clark
February 19, 2017
“The glory days.” “The good ol’ days.” “Back in the day.” We all know people who live in the past. We may even do it ourselves. We think back to what used to be and find ourselves wishing it was like that now. But when it comes to the Christian life, living in the past can keep us from moving forward to what God has for us. In this message, guest speaker Dave Clark delivers a powerful challenge to let go of the psat. Because when it comes to God’s call in our lives, holding on to yesterday can keep us from discovering His true purpose and plan for us today and tomorrow!
