If you’ve ever been at an airport, you’ve experienced perhaps one of the most frantic social environments known to humanity. There are thousands of people, moving at speeds that they normally wouldn’t move at, all while carrying bags or children, or both. Not to mention the seemingly endless array of long lines. Yet, in the midst of what looks like chaos is an over-arching clarity. Each person has a ticket, with a destination. Through all the moving parts there’s one constant, everyone is going somewhere greater, somewhere beyond the airport.

Throughout Scripture, we see a God who in the midst of what looks like chaos, repeatedly calls his children to something greater.

And God does this with people who have baggage, who have a past, who have blemishes on their resumes and imperfections in their lives. Throughout this series we’re going to look specifically at who some of these people are. We’re going to see what we can learn from their lives but more importantly, what we can learn about God and his faithfulness to us, through their lives.

Believe it or not, God has not stopped calling his children. Right where you are, as you are, you are called by God.

Fellowship, it’s my hope that over the next 8 weeks you’ll experience a God whose grace cuts through the chaos, the obstacles, and the frustrations of this world.  May you experience what it means to be called by God.  

In Him,
Albert Tate


The Big
Digital Why


As we thought about this series, we wanted to be intentional about providing spaces and opportunities throughout the week for you to engage with God and with scripture. In these days, we currently put everything from sports, gossip, world news, and politics at our fingertips.

But what if we intentionally put God and his word as close to our eyes, ears, and our hearts as the next social media notification or text message?

What if, as pastor and author Eugene Peterson puts it, “we [bring] ourselves into the presence of God with others and let that experience recalibrate us.” It is our hope that through this intentional web experience we would do exactly that. This season may your soul be calibrated and tuned to God’s voice.


In Him,

Didn’t make it to church on Sunday?

Or perhaps the sermon was so good that you just want to go back and watch it again. Either way we’ve got it right here for you.




Creating community and building authentic relationships is the core of who we are here at Fellowship.

This guide will serve as a tool to facilitate discussion and encourage connections each week. In every guide you will find a question of the day to get the conversation going, a recap of this week’s sermon, the verses used in the message, and a space for prayer. We cannot wait to see how God shows
up in your groups! 



Each week we will provide you with a devotional that you can intentionally engage with during the week on your own time. Here’s what you can expect each week.


1. This Week’s Story

Every week, we want to give texture to the experience of the story told through the sermon on Sunday. We will be highlighting a person or idea in order to know more and go deeper.


2. Reflection

With the pace in which we are used to running, we often forget  to slow down and take time to reflect on what God is doing in our lives. The “Reflection” section is a set aside time to pause, and posture our minds, hearts, spirits towards seeing our lives with “spiritual glasses.”


3. S.O.A.P.

S.O.A.P. is a bible study method that gives anyone access to hearing God speak through His word with the simple tools of a bible, a journal, a pen, and questions. Allow these four questions to guide you through your time.


4. worship

Here at Fellowship we desire to be a church that grows in a life of worship. One of the practical ways that we do that is through music. So we’d love to give you some worship songs as you continue through this experience.



S.O.A.P study method

S for Scripture
Read the whole passage below and allow the Holy Spirit to bring one verse to focus. What verse was highlighted? Write it in your journal.

O for Observation
What struck you and caught your attention in the verse you wrote down? What is going on in this passage? What do you think God is trying to convey?

A for Application
Personalize what you have read, by asking yourself how does this apply to my life right now. Perhaps it is instruction, encouragement, revelation of a new promise, or challenge for a particular area of your life. Write how this passage can apply to you right now.

P for Prayer
Your prayer should be simple. You are asking Jesus, “What would you have me do, confess, or give thanks for?” Remember, prayer is a two way conversation, so be sure to listen to what God has to say! Now, write out your prayer.
