our hunch is that life with God is better than life without God

our hunger is to connect with something greater than ourselves

our hope is that the best is yet to come

Join us this Sunday as we continue our fall sermon series #ASKINGFORAFRIEND: Real Answers to Tough Questions.  P. Sam will deliver a message entitled:

“Is It Possible to Find Fulfillment In This Life?” based on Isaiah 55:1-13

We believe that faith is not meant to be lived alone.

EMBRACE is gathering a sincere and seeking community of wanderers and wonderers who desire to build a life with God and with each other.

We are people from different walks of life – representing a diversity of spiritual experiences – but holding together in common the hunch that life with God is better than life without God and that life is best lived out in community.

We believe that worship honors God and fills our souls.

EMBRACE comes together every Sunday for a moment of singing, praying, listening and responding.

We believe that worship is the primary way of being in relationship with God – to connect with something greater – and that such a relationship moves us to take action.

We believe that following Jesus means creating impact.

EMBRACE is committed to inspiring and equipping people to make a positive difference in the lives of those we know and in the world in which we live. We take seriously Jesus’ command for us to love God and to love people through the intentional use of our time, talents and treasures.

Because our hope is that the best is yet to come, we are in constant pursuit of God’s vision for wholeness and welfare for all.

We’ll see you this Sunday!


“Is It Possible to Find Fulfillment In This Life?”

Everyone is asking this question in one way or another – perhaps not so much in word or out loud – but they are desperate for an answer. How do we know? Because people are so tired in living the lives they’re living right now. Everyone is pushing themselves to the limit to seek more, to have more, to earn more. All because they believe that whatever it is they are seeking will ultimately make them happy. But it never completely does. We are wired to seek God in this life. The reason why we end up so dissatisfied with the things of this world is because those things – money, status, power, things – were never meant to quench the thirst in our souls. The Bible speaks about living water that is available for us to drink. That living water is Jesus. It is being in relationship with God. Yes, it is possible to find fulfillment in this life, but not without Christ. O, n this Thanksgiving Sunday, we will be reminded of how we can find our true contentment in the One who is the source of all our needs.
