Everyone has a story. Part of the beauty of God’s Word is when we can identify with the people God chose to weave into His BIG story of redemption. Tenth Avenue North’s song “Control (Somehow You Want Me)” leads us to explore Jacob in the book of Genesis.

Tenth Avenue North’s song, “What You Want” leads us to search out the Scripture for what God’s agenda.

Unveiling the Body of Christ in 1 Corinthians 12

Community. It’s a place where we have common interests and goals with other people. Once we are joined with other believers in Christ, we share the same Spirit and heritage. These truths are the foundation of the Scripture we will explore this week and are also found in the song, “No Man Is An Island,” by Tenth Avenue North.


This week we learn that we are not an island unto ourselves, we are part of something amazing…the body of Christ.
