Better Together (September 2018)
Draft horses are muscular horses that are used by farmers to help till the soil, and pull heavy things from field to field. One single draft horse can pull about 8000 lbs. But when you put two draft horses on the same load, they don’t only pull twice their own weight, they can actually pull THREE times their own weight, 24000 lbs. Horses, like humans can accomplish more together than the sum of its parts. Join us as we discover that we are better together.
Christ and Culture (August 2018)
God created man, man creates culture. Therefore, Christ sits outside of culture and judges culture while inviting us to change it to look like His kingdom. So this month we will look to the Scriptures to see how Christ views what we as a society value.
Summer Reading Plan (July 2018)
We as Christians believe that the Bible is sacred. That God used authors to write the Bible and we believe that God uses the Holy Spirit to reveal Himself through the Bible. That is why we are taking a month to read through the Bible as a church. Join us as we study Luke together.
How to Make Disciples (June 2018)
Last words are important. They haunt characters in movies and they are etched in stone and in history. Jesus taught much about how to have a relationship with God and how to love and honor our fellow man. Matthew records His last words...
18 And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:16-20
Each and every one of us are called to be and to make disciples. This is the mission of Canvas, to reach people, to reveal Jesus and to make disciples. You and I are called to be and to make disciples, so it would make sense to devote ourselves to disciple-making. This month, we will look at Jesus' blueprint of discipleship to learn why, what and how to make disciples.
Brain Stuff (May 2018)
With the advent of the FMRI machine (functional magnetic resonance imaging), scientists are able to observe and learn about the brains in ways that were not possible 20 years ago. Did you know that when certain parts of the brain light up, others go dark? Or that your brain goes through a major reconstruction process that begins at puberty and isn't completed until your mid 20's? Did you know that research has revealed that prayer and meditation improves brain functionality or that when Jesus said, "You must change and become like children." He may have been referring to how children process information? Learn more in this mini series called "Brain stuff."
The Purpose of Jesus (April 2018)
As we open our discussion on the purpose of Jesus, it is easy on Easter to reduce His life to death on a cross. Indeed, this was a momentous occasion, however, Jesus came to do more than to just die for our sins. This week, we will luke at Jesus' purpose He identified in Luke 4. The first is the proclamation of the Gospel, the good news. What is good news and why does it matter?
Lead Where you Are (May 2017)
God didn't just send His Son so that we can go to heaven when we die. He sent His Son so that we could learn from His model how to change the world. The call to being a Christian is a call to change the world. So no matter where you are, lead where you are.
Four Cups (April 2017)
In this 4 week series, pastor Tim examines a promise God made to Israel that is repeated throughout the Scriptures and applies to us today.
What If? (March 2017)
In this three-part series, pastor looks at specific Scriptures and asks What if the Bible is true? This series looks at the ramifications and applications of these Scriptures.
Jesus for President (November 2016)
In the midst of a historic election, it is time for us to consider the tension between being a citizen and being a Christian. Join us as we seek Scripture to discover what it would look like to honor God as an American.

What does it mean when a person says, "God calls them"? This two part series shows what it means to be called and what are the responsibilities of the called.
Dream (October 2016)
We believe the dreams and desires in our heart are not an accident, but something God instilled in us to draw us closer to Him. Check out this four part series on Dreams.
