We live in a world where we are constantly surrounded by noise. We rarely have times where we can think and be still. We move through life with a soundtrack that we consume through media and constant activity. Jesus faced similar distractions when people pulled for his time and attention. Join Michael Bayne as he explores how Jesus pulled away from the noise in order to connect with God.

When most of us think of "spirituality," we tend to think about typical "spiritual" activities: reading the Bible, going to church, and praying.  But what if our understanding of "spirituality" needs to be broadened to include other things - things like rest and leisure?  As we continue our series on how Jesus connected with God, join Adam Dressler as he looks at an often under-appreciated rhythm in Jesus' life: rest.

Prayer is foundational to a close relationship with God.  Yet for many of us, regular and meaningful prayer remains a struggle.  But what if it was actually possible to experience life-giving, soul-satisfying prayer?  When we read about the life of Jesus, this is what we see.  And it is possible for us today.  Join Adam Dressler as he continues our series The Jesus Way by looking at prayer.

When we look at the life of Jesus, we see a person who lived with an intimate and deeply personal connection with his Father.  During his life, he made the outlandish claim that we could know his Father - God - in the same way.  How is this possible?  Join Adam Dressler as he begins our new series by looking at one of the most important ways that Jesus related to God: through the Word.
