What we focus on will shape our desires, decisions, and destiny. As followers of Jesus we are encouraged to "fix our eyes on Jesus," so that we can become like him and develop mature faith. This sounds easy, except that there are so many things vying for our attention which can distract us. Join us as we talk about the enemies of focus and what we can do to maintain focus on Jesus.
We begin every year by setting aside twenty-one days to pray and fast as a House. We believe prayer matters, not as a way to get God to do what we want, but to get in on what God is doing. Our desire is to draw near to God, orient our hearts around His, and ask Him to do what only He can do in the year ahead.
21 Days 2017 begins on January 8 and concludes on January 28. Join us as we fix our eyes on Jesus in prayer, fasting, and worship. We will gather to pray together every weekday. Details are as follows.
January 9-13 6:00 to 7:00AM
January 16-20 noon to 1:00PM
January 23-27 5:00 to 6:00PM
Our last gathering is on a Sturday and will be a powerful finale together. You don't want to miss it.
January 28 9:00 to 10:00AM
All gatherings are on the second floor in the South Auditorium (Organ Recital Hall) at the University Center for the Arts (1400 Remington Street).
No childcare available, but all kids are welcome.

We are called to reach people far from God with the life-giving message of Jesus, and to live differently so that we can make a difference.

We believe that generosity is a to be normal, "default setting" for followers of Jesus. And not just average, run of the mill, pitch a few extra dollars into the red kettle, buy a better gift generosity, but radical, more than feels comfortable, thinking through the lens of eternity, "you gave what?" generosity! The kind that reflects the heart of God expressd through the gift of His son, Jesus. The kind that makes an impact, cannot be ignored, and the kind that does something to us in the process.
Generosity isn't something we do, but who we are, so we want to live this way all year round, but each year we put generosity front and center with Generosity Sunday. This year, Generosity Sunday is December 11. We will have the opportunity to give financially as well as pack boxes of supplies to fill a container to ship to LOL Orphanage in Belize.
We are asking you and everyone in our House to ask God what He would have you give above and beyond your normal giving so we, as a House, might give above and beyond our normal giving to our city, our nation, and around the world. You can give in any of our gatherings or online on Sunday, December 11.
Check out the difference your giving is making at Lincoln Middle School in Fort Collins.
As the pressure is turned up to buy, get, and give this holiday season, we want to put generosity front and center. We believe generosity shold be normal for followers of Jesus. We want our vision to be colored by the generosity of God, not just in the gifts we buy, but the way we live. What would happen if we started to give and live in such a way that it reflected God? Join us as we talk about what this looks like, the impact it has on those around us, now and into eternity.
