We want to be fearless followers of Jesus who change the world. We will not allow fear to hold us back from all that God desires for us to be in our homes, workplaces, schools, church, community and the world.To be fearless is to be full of faith, believing God is who He says He is and will do what He promises to do.

God's Remodeling Process- Fixer Upper
Last Tuesday at 4:00 PM

This week we begin our new series, “Fixer Upper”. God loves you the way you are. You don't have to “get it together” to start a relationship with Him, but He also wants to change and transform you for your good and for His glory! This week Chris Williams introduces God’s Remodeling Plan for us, pushing us to work as if it ALL depends on us, while realizing it ALL depends on God.

Be Present, Seize the Opportunity- Not a Nanny
04/18/2021

This is week 2 in our parenting series, Not A Nanny. As parents we are not experts at everything, but we also want the best for our children. So we learn to outsource some of their training to the experts. That may work with teachers, tutors, coaches or music lessons, but we can’t make the mistake of outsourcing their spiritual development to anyone else. God didn’t call someone else to teach your child to follow Jesus, He called you. Pastor Chris Williams and our Family Pastor, Laine Meek talk this week about how to disciple our children by b...


Pursuit not Perfection- Not a Nanny
04/13/2021

As parents we are not experts at everything. But we also want the best for our children, so we learn to outsource some of their training to the experts. That may work with teachers, tutors, coaches or music lessons, but we can’t make the mistake of outsourcing their spiritual development to anyone else. God didn’t call someone else to teach your child to follow Jesus, He called you. This week, Chris Williams encourages us and reminds us that the first step to discipling our children is loving Jesus more ourselves and living a life of pursuit and...


Resurrection for Redemption- Jesus Juke
04/13/2021

Welcome to the Fearless Church Podcast. When Jesus came to earth, He ended up being a lot different than what anyone thought. He was constantly saying and doing things that flipped the system on its head. In many ways, He wasn’t the savior that we all expected Him to be. In our last sermon for this series, Pastor Chris Williams teaches about the ultimate Jesus Juke.

Discussion Questions:

Humility Asks For Help- Jesus Juke
03/22/2021

Welcome to the Fearless Church Podcast. When Jesus came to earth, He ended up being a lot different than what anyone thought. He was constantly saying and doing things that flipped the system on its head. In many ways, He wasn’t the savior that we all expected Him to be.

Don't Give Up On Sex- Don't Give Up
03/02/2021

Join us as we wrap up our Don't Give Up message series! This week we finish this marriage series, on the topic of sex.

Singleness- Don't Give Up
02/15/2021

We know that a marriage series in February can be just what your relationship needs, but for those of you that aren’t married, it feels disappointing, unrelatable and exclusive. Well, here at Fearless church we believe that this series is just as important for those that are unmarried as it is for people who are married. Marriage matters and your role in it matters. Wether you are already married, pursuing marriage, in a season of singleness, healing from a past hurtful marriage, or land somewhere else in the margins, we believe God has something for you in th...


Jesus Didn't Give Up- Don't Give Up
02/07/2021

In week one of our sermon series, “Don’t Give Up”, Pastor Chris Voltz reminds us of God’s intent in creating marriage. We know that ideally marriage is a safe, loving and secure place, but what happens when it turns into a place of hurt and insecurity? Today, Chris introduces the idea that without Jesus, we can’t be successful at displaying God’s love for the world through our marriage or any relationship, and gives us biblical advice on taking the first step in succeeding together with your spouse.

Brace Yourself for Healing- Brace Yourself
01/17/2021

What if someone told you that you can find freedom from those secrets you are keeping? What if you could snap a finger and the pressure to keep up appearances just disappeared. What if there actually was a way for you to be free from the shame and guilt you are living in daily that makes you feel like you are the only one? While it might not be as quick as snapping a finger, we know God's word promises that we actually can find freedom from that guilt, from that shame, and from those little choices that...


Support- Brace Yourself
01/11/2021

Are you spiritually strong? Or more importantly, is there anyone in your life right now that knows the answer to that question besides you? Community is one of the main pillars of Fearless Church. We believe that without other believers around you, you will never become a fearless follower of Jesus who changes the world. We need to have support of all different kinds all around us as we move forward in our pursuit of Jesus. This week, Chris Williams kicks off our “Brace Yourself” in Ecclesiastes, making the case that fearless followers of Jesus live in Biblical comm...

Just Do It- Too Good To Be True
12/13/2020

Sometimes in life we are faced with extremely difficult decisions that seem to have no right answer. We wish God would just speak to us in a dream or beam a light down from heaven telling us what to do. In the 6th week of our “Too Good To Be True” sermons series, Chris Voltz examines a guy in the Bible who had to make an agonizing decision…. Joseph. Yup....the earthly father of Jesus. Through his example, we learn that discerning and obeying God’s will for us might not be as complicated as we make it, and that som...

What is Your Faith Worth?- Too Good To Be True
11/22/2020

This is our third week in our series titled “Too Good to Be True”. There are many stories in the Bible that center around characters with big faith. God blessed the people in scripture who took risks and obeyed His Word even when they weren’t sure of the outcome. Looking at these stories, it may feel like their faith is something unattainable, and even if it is, some crazy miracle isn’t going to happen as a result, right?  This week, Chris Voltz shares the story of the prophet Elisha and how he gave up his comfort...

Socially Distant: Let's Build a Bridge
04/20/2020

You didn’t even know what social distancing was a month ago.  Now it’s your life.  Your new normal isn’t normal at all.  Relationships just got harder and even though you can attend work meetings in your underwear now, let’s face it, Zoom calls are still not ideal (though the 40-minute meeting limit is a great bonus). 

It’s in seasons like this, however, when our routines are broken, that God has a way of stretching us, calling us to more.  Will we keep our heads down and just get by, or...


Fear Less Love More: Pursue Generosity
04/06/2020

Chris Voltz challenges us to examine where we are finding our security in these trying times. Are we looking for security and control in the resources we have and trusting in ourselves, or are we depending and trusting in God? As we read in 1 Timothy 6, we are challenged to examine our hearts and pushed to see the truth that the key to abundance in the future is generosity, especially with our physical resources. Generosity is contagious, lets go fear less and love more!
