Growing in Faith Together

Next steps for Artisan’s building
October 15 – November 12, 2017

Over the past few years, Artisan has grown a lot! Our kids are growing up all around us, and we’ve grown in our understanding of the fullness of the gospel and God’s wide welcome. Now it’s time to take the next step on our journey and address some of the limitations of our church building. We want to grow not just in numbers, but in faith. Let’s grow in faith together.

Message line-up:

Growing in Faith Together
Pastor Scott Austin

Today, we kick off our new teaching series for the Growing in Faith Together campaign. We’ll preview the coming weeks, and we’ll share honestly about our hopes and dreams and concerns for the campaign.

Pastor Scott Austin

As our children grow up, we pass on our faith from one generation to the next. We give thanks for the generations who have come before us, and we delight in seeing our children begin to experience God in their own lives. Living in the Way of Jesus across the generations means that all of us receive the blessing of growing in faith together.

Pastor Scott Austin

Very small things that seem inconsequential have the capacity to grow into something incredible and powerful. As Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “The creation of a thousand forests is in one acorn.” At Artisan, we value our children not just for who we hope they will become, but because they are already showing us the way.

Pastor Scott Austin

The movement of the Holy Spirit in the early church threw open the doors to God’s great banquet hall, inviting in those who had previously been excluded. And the Spirit’s work continues today, teaching us in every new generation that the dividing walls between us have been broken down by the radical love of Christ.

A Movement
Pastor Scott Austin

Every one of these ideas can be advanced by our plans to expand and renovate Artisan’s building. But it’s important to remember that this project is not ultimately about a building; it’s an extension of our values. We are doing so much more than a big construction project; we’re growing a movement—a faith movement. Will you be part of it?
