  • The Gift of Receiving

    begins December 2, 2018

    It’s Christmastime, a season of giving.  But so much giving must also mean it’s a season of receiving too, right?  As we wrap up our year in the New Testament letter to the Philippians, we learn in this passage how to receive help from others and the grace and peace of God as well.  We know we are to be good givers; let’s be good receivers too!

  • A centered soul

    October 28 - November 25, 2018

    Philippians 4:4-9.  Joy is hard to come by and peace is difficult to keep. The circumstances of our lives swirl around us and—if we’re not careful—make us dizzy as they pull us in every direction. But it doesn’t have to be this way. In Philippians 4:4-9 we find an exit from this turmoil, a recipe for true joy and peace. Our souls need not stay distracted and distressed, but can find their true center in Christ.

  • find your focus

    September 30 - October 21, 2018

    Philippians 3:17-4:3.  The busyness of life can blur our priorities.  So many distractions can add up to some pretty poor vision for life and what it’s really all about.  It’s not hard to lose our focus.  As we continue our way through Paul’s letter to the Philippians, we’ll learn in this series just how essential it is that we live with mental and spiritual clarity, a sense of destiny, and a commitment to unity.   

  • press on

    August 26 - September 23, 2018

    Philippians 3:1-16.  Life can wear us down or wear us out, especially when we’re trying to do everything on our own and in our own strength. There’s a better way. In this portion of his letter to the Philippian Christians, Paul makes one thing very clear: nothing matters without Christ. Knowing Him, serving and becoming more like Him, fulfilling His call on our lives…these are what matter most and provide meaning to everything else. Let’s not give up or give in; let’s learn to PRESS ON.  

  • student sunday

    August 19, 2018

    Student Sundays are one of Outlook's highly anticipated services. The services are planned, organized, and led by our students. Students will serve around the church in the tech booth, kids church, serving communion, leading worship, and finally our Student Minister delivers the sermon.

  • An all-request outlook summer

    June 3 - August 12, 2018

    You asked for it! :)   From forgiveness to holiness to the trinity and the afterlife...we'll spend this summer turning to God's Word and tackling the subjects you're curious about and the topics you struggle with. It's going to be a great time of learning and growing together!

  • the labor of love

    May 6 to May 27, 2018

    Philippians 2:12-30.  God's love for us is a gift. We can't earn it and don't deserve it. But once we experience it, something shifts in us. His love motivates us to serve and sacrifice. That's what He did. That's what love does. In this powerful passage we'll see there's good work to be done in the name of love, work that changes us and changes the world.

  • Filling in our blank spaces

    April 8 to April 29, 2018

    We’re all searching for the same things … CONNECTION, GROWTH, MEANING, IMPACT ... but so few of us are finding them.  Our lives feel gray and we long for color.  Our hearts have empty spots and we long to be complete.  It doesn’t have to stay this way. 

  • true greatness

    March 11 to April 1, 2018

    Philippians 2:1-11.  What does it mean to be great, to live a great life?   To be a great person?  The world we live in has its answers: achieve your dreams, be all you can be, believe in yourself.   But in Jesus greatness is defined by compassion, humility, and love.  We reach the heights of our potential only by lowering ourselves in service and sacrifice just as our Lord did.

  • sharing the struggle

    February 4 to March 4, 2018

    Philippians 1:12-30.  Nothing worthwhile is easy. Nowhere is this more true than when we follow Jesus with our whole selves. Paul knew this personally and his experiences gave him a deeply wise perspective on suffering. In these words we can learn patience, faith, and integrity—especially when times are tough.


    January 7 to 28, 2018

    Philippians 1:1-11.  Ever been tempted to go it alone? We all probably have. But sooner or later we realize that simply doesn’t work. In these opening words of Paul’s letter to the Philippian Christians, we hear his heart for the church and his firm conviction that life in Jesus is meant to be lived in vital connection with other believers.

  • new life in christ

    December 31, 2017

    As we look to the new year, we will explore several passages from God's Word that will help us recognize and celebrate the new life we have, both in eternity and in our earthly lives, as a result of our salvation in Jesus Christ. 

  • His Name shall be called ...

    December 3 to 24, 2017

    The prophet Isaiah saw far ahead that the birth of Jesus would mean we could get to know God more fully and deeply as “Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”   There’s lots of power and truth in these titles.  And Jesus can be all these to us.  That’s the real miracle of Christmas.

  • Worship matters

    October 15, 2017 to November 26, 2017

    In this series we’re examining worship from every angle.  What is it?  Why is worship important?  And how do we do it?  We’ll blow away some stereotypes and wrong ideas and dig deeply in to the truth of what it means to worship the God of all the universe with everything we are.


    August 27, 2017 to October 8, 2017

    How We Can Restore Faith in Our Faith.  We’ve been hacked. For a couple of generations now, people have been getting some wrong ideas about American Christianity because our faith has been hijacked by forces and philosophies and influences that miss the point at best and turn countless people off of Jesus at worst.

    We’re going to tackle six such hacks with the goal that 1) our worldviews are challenged as we ask ourselves, have I been hacked? and 2) we better represent our faith and rescue it from false ideas.
