God has a gift for you. It is a gift that will not fail no matter what you may face. Christmas is our annual celebration to recognize that this gift has arrived.

Studies show that gratefulness is one of the answers to a happy, flourishing life. What many don’t realize, however, is that this principle is evident all through the Bible. God created us to be grateful and experience the joy that follows. This week we’ll look at a story of gratitude from Luke’s gospel. Together, we’ll learn how to practice being …

We get the privilege of getting more time with our new Senior Pastor Phil EuBank! Jess, Keith (now known as the Jimmy G. of Menlo Midweek) and Phil talk about the Bay, our hopes for Menlo and Texas BBQ!

Today we hear from our senior pastor candidate, Phil EuBank! For too the long the church has been known more for the negative—what it’s against—rather than for its positive actions and messages.

What do you identify as? It’s complicated. We each have many layers to our identity. Our jobs, our race, gender, education, or hobbies. The list is endless. But what is at the core—our true identity? For Christians, our truest identity is seen in Jesus. We are his. We do everything in the name of Jesus. But what does that mean? Many people claim to…

(650)600-0402 For many, Christianity is just about being told all the things we shouldn’t do—and at first glance that’s what Paul, in Colossians 3, seem…
 
For many, Christianity is just about being told all the things we shouldn’t do—and at first glance that’s what Paul, in Colossians 3, seems to be doing. However, he’s actually talking about something deeper and more beautiful. He’s hoping we’ll see the symptoms and indicators of what happens when we live in our false self, which results in our sett…
 
On today's episode, Scott Palmbush joined Jess to deep dive his sermon in our Colossians series and to share a BIG ANNOUNCEMENT (did someone say Senior Pastor candidate?!?!)

There are over 51 million YouTube channels, over 2 million podcasts, and over 1 billion TikTok videos per day.

This week we’re talking about the suffering we choose. Why would someone choose suffering? Parents do so every day for their children.

This week, through the words of the apostle Paul to the Colossians, we explore who Jesus was. Our tendency is to reduce Jesus to an idol. But that Jesus will never deliver us from sin and death or transform us. This message will encourage us to abandon our false images and embrace the real Jesus. Look at the Scriptures that describe Jesus and ident…

Unlike major sport…

One beautiful thing about being human is that God gives us unique gifts, talents, personality traits, passions, and perspectives. Our world and culture tell us to use these strictly for our own self-centered motives. Join us this week to hear how God’s plan is different; God's plan is to combine our individuality with others uniqueness - to create …

Adam Hendrix is back on with Mark and Jess this week to discuss his sabbatical and closing our Being Human series! The word "sin" sounds outdated, old-fashioned, heavy-handed, and guilt-producing. But it’s right there in the Bible. What do we do with that? This week, we explore David's major sin and look at how we, as Christians, don't need to avoi…
 
The word "sin" sounds outdated, old-fashioned, heavy-handed, and guilt-producing. But it’s right there in the Bible. What do we do with that? This week, we explore David's major sin and look at how we, as Christians, don't need to avoid sin, but DO need to recognize and become aware of sin. After all, sin, failures, and mistakes are never the end o…
 
Join Mark and Jess as we chat with Brett about how not to be scared of the future. Have you ever worried or wondered about what comes next? Or made plans based on being able to influence what will happen in the future? It is, after all, only human to want to take control of what happens in our lives. But what if in our desire to grab control we mis…
 
Have you ever worried or wondered about what comes next? Or made plans based on being able to influence what will happen in the future? It is, after all, only human to want to take control of what happens in our lives. But what if in our desire to grab control we miss what God wants to do in and through us? David is a good example. He had plans to …

In a world filled with the noise of social media—where we sometimes cheer on individuals who ridicule anyone they disagree with—we’ve lost the art of honoring people. Especially people we believe to be dishonorable. Saul repeatedly tried to kill David or have him killed. David had the chance to seek revenge against Saul, but instead he chose to hon…

We all face challenges and fears that require courage. David and Goliath show us two different approaches to courage—one grounded in reality and the other coming from delusion. In this sermon we consider God-centered courage—the courage that comes not from something big, but is actually a result of the small steps taken every day. Today, we see how…

Humans are complicated, walking paradoxes. Sometimes we’re the worst, sometimes we’re the best. We are physical beings with flesh and blood, skin, and bones. We’re also spiritual beings, having the breath of God. Often, we tend to separate our lives-the spiritual or the sacred, the holy or the earthly. But at the core of being human, is a union, no…
