When You Pray I "Praise" I Sunday, January 17, 2021
Prayer, it has been said, is simply “talking to God.” which is very true but it is also so much more. Something can be simple, yet not be simplistic - just ask any kid to teach you a TikTok dance! It looks so simple 'till all your limbs have to start moving in different directions to the beat while also looking cool and effortless! Jesus' disciples recognized a power and depth to his prayers that they wanted for their own. "Teach us to pray" they asked. The Lord's Prayer was Jesus' response, short and simple. But don't let that fool you, there is way more going on in this model prayer than first meets the eye! Today we're kicking off the first of 4 weeks looking at the Lord's Prayer and the treasure trove of insight that leads to the power and depth in prayer that the disciples were looking for.

Join us as we take this fun and inspiring look back at what God has done at GT in 2020.

The More the Merrier | More to the Gift I Sunday, December 20, 2020
Angelic visitations? Virgin birth? A hyper gang of shepherds showing up at their son’s birth claiming to have been sent by angels?

Watch as Pastor Jeremy wraps up our Christmas series "The More The Merrier" by unpacking the prophecy spoken over Jesus by Simeon. (And just for fun, find out the worst gift Jeremy's ever received!)

The More The Merrier I "You Are Not Alone" I Sunday, December 6, 2020
We are in the midst of a global pandemic, and no, it's not the coronavirus. Before covid-19 was dominating concerns and conversations there was a pre-existing pandemic: not a physical ailment but an emotional one - loneliness. Before quarantining and social distancing were put in place to flatten the curve, many were already feeling disconnected and the events of the past year has only made it worse. As we continue our Christmas series, "The More The Merrier", Pastor Rick shows us how Jesus truly is "Immanuel", God among us...and because of that, we don't need to be alone.
The More The Merrier I "There's No App For That!" I Sunday, November 29, 2020
We've known it's been true for a while. We've sensed its effects subtly creeping in. If anything, quarantining and social distancing has made its reality felt by everyone - we've never lived in a more connected world, yet been more disconnected! In this message, Pastor Cheryl kicks off our Christmas series "The More The Merrier" by looking at the intentionality with which God made his connection with us and wants us to make with others - and just a hint, there's no app for that!
