Great Big Little Words (10:30 AM Blended) “Hope”

Text: Romans 5:1-5 What we need more than anything these days is hope.  In Paul’s letter to the Romans, he tells us precisely where hope comes from and how we can get it.  Romans 5 also tells us that “hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit.”  This is the good news that we’ve been looking for and it is well worth sharing!

Pentecost Sunday (10:30 Blended)

50 days after Easter we celebrate the outpouring of the Holy Spirit – crossing all boundaries, bringing the wideness of God’s mercy to places we least expect it. Jesus promises his disciples that they will be accompanied by the Holy Spirit.

The Other Side (10:30 Blended) “Remembering…”

Text: John 14:23-29 Just like Jesus’ disciples, we are often faced with fears and feelings of being abandoned by God. Jesus reminds us of the promise of the Holy Spirit and we are given the assurance that on “the other side” of these fears, God has given us a peace that is like nothing that the world can offer us.

The Other Side (9:00 AM Traditional)

Text: John 13:31-35 “He who dies with the most toys wins.” This philosophy points to a way of life for many people who either, knowingly or unknowingly, chase after material things and the comforts of this life. On “the other side” of this coin is the example of our Lord who stooped to wash his disciples’ feet and who calls us to live a life marked by servanthood and sacrifice.

“Everlasting Arms” (Blended)

John 10:22-30 This mortal life has been called “the vale of tears” as it brings us many trials and tribulations. Is there something better for us on “the other side”? According to Jesus who comes to us as our Risen Savior, there most assuredly is eternal life that we can experience both now and after we die. This is most certainly true!

“The Other Side” (Blended)

John 20:19-31 History has not been kind to Thomas when he was given the name “Doubting Thomas.” But his story has another side and so does our story because of Easter. We experience doubts and trials of our own today even though we are on the other side of the Resurrection. Jesus is speaking in our text about us and about Christians throughout the ages who have not seen him with our own eyes and yet have believed. But whether…
