Gathered Up in Jesus.  The Season of Lent can seem dark and scary. Even if we admit that we do need to work on things (and we do!), it can seem like a never-ending hopeless task where we always come up short. We start seeing issues in ourselves and suddenly we are overwhelmed with no idea of how to begin to grow. What would happen if saw Lent as a chance to work with the One who loves us just…

Witness to the Resurrection! Did you ever see something amazing and just had to share it? On the flipside, did you ever miss the miraculous and wish you had been there? When we proclaim the Jesus Christ’s resurrection, we bear witness to this amazing, miraculous event. Bearing witness is more than simply saying we saw it. Saying, with the disciples, “we are witnesses” is not simply a matter of pride, or worse yet, one-upmanship. It is claiming a responsibility, or…

Sermon series

Love Never Ends The lights come down. The parties are over. And now we slog through the rest of winter. Or maybe this year is something different.

Christmas Eve Service

All season we have been talking about coming home for Christmas. Christmas Eve, home comes to us. Christmas Eve, the Savior comes to us.

Advent Sermon Series

“Come Home For Christmas” Home for Christmas. It’s uplifting and terrifying! We may long for home and loved ones, but what about the arguments left over from whenever? We long for home, but where is home really? We long for home, but does anyone really want us there? After a year of major strife, maybe we should just stay away. Or, maybe, this Advent Season, we can begin to head home to the Kin-do of God. Maybe, we can follow…

November sermon series

“A Life That Matters” The past two years have asked us to look at our lives – to see what is important to us. We have had to change, to grow, to transform. But as we work to get back to “normal” – even a “new normal” – how do we incorporate those lessons we have learned. What does a new normal mean for how we live as disciples of Jesus Christ? What are some of the markers that help…
