A Compassionate Shepherd and Communal Abundance

November 15, 2015 – Kim Pierrot

This morning, as part of our Face to Face with Jesus series, we turn to Mark chapter six and see a God who looks with compassion on a crowd that is hungry for hope, for food. In the well-known story of the Feeding of the 5,000, we see Jesus offering his people miraculous rest and nourishment. All we need to do is to bring him what we have, and Jesus does the rest.

An Invitation to Unity and Maturity

November 8, 2015 – Rod Wilson

When church families experience challenges, obstacles, and pain we all resort to our well-honed natural responses.  Some of us fight, debate and challenge.  Others dig deep, stay faithful, and pitch in.  Others move on, avoid the struggles, and find a new family.  Ephesians 4:1-16 is a powerful reminder that all of us need to pursue unity and maturity while recognizing that we are part of the body of Christ and He is the Head of the church.

Face to Face with Jesus in a Furious Storm

November 1, 2015 – Scott Anderson

Two Sundays ago, we introduced our fall series in the gospel of Mark – Face to Face with Jesus – with an diagnosis that seemed to resonate with some of us – that sometimes in our journey of faith, for all of our familiarity and proximity to Jesus, we can end up in a place where we are actually blind to Jesus. Not necessarily indifferent to or distant from, but blind to him. Unable to really see Him as He really is. He’s there, but he’s fuzzy, vague, indistinct, lacking any real clarity. The kind of clarity that calls us to attention, that causes us to listen, and that inspires us to come near, to worship and trust and follow Jesus.
And this morning, I want to continue in this by taking us into a moment with Jesus that brought some more clarity – maybe some unexpected clarity – to Jesus’ first disciples…

By Invitation Only

October 25th, 2015 – Kim Pierrot

“The quest for the eternal, all-beautiful, all-true and all-pure, and the quest to be close to the poor and most broken people appear to be so contradictory. And yet, in the broken heart of Christ, these two quests are united. Jesus reveals to us that he loves his Father, and is intimately linked to him; at the same time he is himself in love with each person and in a particular way with the most broken, the most suffering and the most rejected. To manifest this love, Jesus himself became broken and rejected, a man of sorrows and of anguish and of tears; he became the Crucified One.” –Jean Vanier, Community and Growth

Home Blindness, a Boring Jesus and The Gift of Mark’s Gospel

October 18th, 2015 – Scott Anderson

“Being home blind is a phenomenon we’ve all experienced.  It’s when we are so used to something being around that we stop seeing it in detail.  Psychologists affirm that this is a universal experience and a natural, functional response of the human brain… Over time, familiarity can breed blindness.  And nowhere is this more disastrous than when it comes to Jesus.” (Don Everts, God in the Flesh)

A Second Healing

October 11th, 2015 – Kim Pierrot

This morning, we will talk about the way that our moment-by-moment experience of gratitude can bring us back to the person of Jesus. We are not talking about “looking on the bright side” so much as a simple noticing of the way that God loves and cares for each of us in our present life experiences. Brian Lehane suggests: “Perhaps God doesn’t necessarily want us always to be saying “thank you” so much as to be noticing how much we are loved and cared for by Him and, in turn, to respond by living a life of gratitude.”

The Invitation to Journey With

September 27th, 2015 – Kim Pierrot

September 27th, 2015 – Community Prayer Response

So Scott, what’s your vision for Cap?
This is a question that many have asked me over the last while; one that I’ve been increasingly eager to answer.  And as we dive into this new season, we want to explore not just our vision, or my vision, but our sense of God’s vision for Cap – for who will seek to be in the coming years – and the core invitations that will lead us there.
Ultimately, our vision for Cap is simple – to be and grow as
a community
alive in Christ
for the sake of the world.
This is our third Sunday exploring what this means and the core invitations that lead us in the way of this God-dream – IN, WITH & FOR.  Over the last two Sundays, we’ve heard God’s invitation to come in, and to live for.  This morning Kim Pierrot will help us hear the invitation to journey with.

Celebrating and Anticipating God’s Work Amoung Us

September 6th, 2015 – Capchurch Speakers

This morning we stand between two seasons – summer and fall – but also between two significant seasons in the life of our church.  We will look back and celebrate some of the ways that we’ve seen God at work among us and around us recently, and we will look forward with anticipation for what God will do in the coming days.  And in the middle, we will come together to the Table and find Christ with us right where we are.
