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

Text: Romans 12:1-2 There is always more than enough to share. But God is calling us to give of ourselves in ways that may take us out of our comfortable lives and into the lives of others. What does it mean to offer ourselves as “living sacrifices”? As we say in our offering prayer: “our selves, our time, and our possessions.”

Good Friday Worship (7:00 PM) “The Seven Last Words”

Lent | Worship “God Pursues Us with Grace”

Text: Psalm 23:6a God provides blessing upon blessing, grace upon grace. And Jesus made it clear that we do not choose God but, rather, God chooses us. So how then is God pursuing us with grace and love and what difference does this make in our daily lives?

“Over-Commitment” (10:30 Blended)

Text: Luke 14:15-24 The Christian faith brings words of challenge to us as well as words of comfort. When our schedules are filled to the brim with commitments but we leave little room for the things that Jesus calls us to do, Jesus reminds us of our true priorities through a parable that speaks to our over-scheduled modern lives. Jesus taught us a prayer that can direct us as we order our lives and our priorities: “thy kingdom come, thy…

Ash Wednesday “God is a shepherd who provides”

Text: Psalm 23: 1-2 Although it is perhaps the most familiar of all scripture passages, Psalm 23 still has much to teach us. It offers us challenge as well as comfort and it sets the tone for this year’s Lenten focus for our entire congregation, young and old alike. What does it mean for us to recognize and celebrate how God the Shepherd provides for our every need? How are we being invited and called into a different way of…

“Guarding Our Hearts” (10:30 AM Blended)

Text: Philippians 4:4-7 The message of “fear not” appears like a reassuring refrain throughout the scriptures. God knows our hearts and his eternal promise to us is that “the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.” We explore together how God’s Spirit leads us to trade our anxieties for a heart that trusts and rejoices in all times and seasons.

“For the Unexpected” (10:30 Blended)

Text: Exodus 3:1-5 The story of Moses and the burning bush is one that teaches us that God’s presence at any given place and time transforms ordinary moments into holy moments. Are we prepared to find that God may be at work in us and in others in the most unlikely and unexpected of circumstances?
