The Greatest of These Is Love

Love is all you need! It’s a cliche from sappy 70’s tunes. The trouble with love is that we don’t understand it. Love’s meaning has been twisted in our culture. This Sunday find out what God means when he talks about love.

Listen to the Shepherd

“The King of Love, My Shepherd Is…” Psalm 23 has captured the imagination and the soul of many a poet. The illustrations of a shepherd and a sheep are many. Jesus uses the image of himself. This Sunday see yourself as one of Jesus sheep. That’s a great place to be.

Praise the Lamb

What a song!  The picture in Revelation has everything except the tune.  The majesty and the glory of our God on full display is a powerful vision of comfort.  To God’s timeless view of the world, this is a done deal.  To our limited view of life in time, we have a way to go.  God won’t leave us.  This Sunday we offer comfort using a view from heaven.

Leaving the Chains

Why is it that the Sunday after the highest festival of the church year is about doubt? That’s because doubts creep into our lives. Thomas had the word of every disciple and he still claimed to know better. Stop doubting and believe is the call from our God. Jesus is alive!

Traditions

The tomb is empty. Do you know the life changing consequences of that reality? He lives who once was death. Because Jesus lives, we also will live forever! Check out our Easter Sunday message taken from Luke 24.

Run the Race of Faith

Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna! With shouts of joy the city of Jerusalem embraced their king as he entered the city in peace. How quickly that changed… Join us as we enter Holy Week with the cerebration of Palm Sunday.

Victory in Jesus

What does a great victory look like?  Maybe you can think of a few in the history of the world.  Our God knows a thing or two about great victories.  The difference is that they may not always look like great victories to our eyes.  This Sunday we saw our God never get tired of winning.  We win the victory with him.

Prodigal Family

How hard to you look for something when it is lost?  Is there a point where you give up?  What if it’s not an item, but a person whom you love?  What would you do to have that loved one back?  Would you ever give up?  These are the questions that our God explores this Sunday.  How great is his love for the lost!

The Burning Bush

Why exactly would I take off my sandals? Foot protection in general is a good thing, but when you are standing in the presence of God, off those sandals go! The account of the burning bush is a fascinating look at The Lord’s identity.

Reckless Love

Persecution, intimidation, and threats can be part of the Christian walk. In our Gospel lesson we’ll see how Jesus faced these during his ministry as did a missionary to Ireland named Patrick. Watch this Sunday as we look at how our God would have us respond.

Temptation

If you were hungry – I mean, really hungry – and you could turn stones into bread, would you? Would there be any harm? A guy has to eat! There was more to the temptations of our Lord that first meets the eye. Join us as we consider what our Lord went through so that we might be saved.

The Cost

We are only dust and ashes before our Holy God. David knew that too well. In 2 Samuel 24 he repents of his sin, but the consequences are catastrophic.

The Glory of The Lord

Epiphany mean “reveal”! The season of the church year that we call Epiphany has its bookends the Star of Bethlehem and the glory of God on the Mount of Transfiguration. We begin the season taking on the baby in the manger from Christmas. We leave the season seeing God in all his glory. The reason this “shot in the arm” is essential to our faith is because the forty-day journey to the cross that is the season of Lent is long and difficult. The annual recollection of Jesus’ Passion is painful to watch. Lest we forget that Jesus is God we see him once more in all his glory revealed.

Redemption and Revenge

When you are attacked verbally or physically what is your first reaction? God has not set us up to be physical or emotional punching bags, but how can we “turn the other cheek” and keep the peace? We’ll look at a Christians response to persecution this Sunday.

Thorns in the Flesh

Thorns are maybe what pricked you a couple days ago when trying to prep your roses for your girl. Thorns in life hurt. One of the questions that people often as is why? What is God thinking? We’ll consider the thorn in the Apostle Paul’s life this Sunday.

Fishing with Jesus

There are some things that sound like a bad idea. Take fishing in the middle of a lake during the middle of the day with a net. That probably won’t work. When Jesus tells you to try something, the chances are very good that he has a reason. This Sunday we’ll look at Jesus’ fishing advice and what it means for our lives. This Sunday come fishing with Jesus.

Cliff Jumping

When Church Goers Attack – might be a good title for a B movie.  Most of the time people in a congregation are happy to be there.  Violence is never on the agenda in our Sunday Morning bulletin, yet on that fateful Saturday in Nazareth, someone was almost thrown off a cliff.  What we talked about as an emotional moment last Sunday goes terribly wrong in just a few moments.  What happened?!  Join us for worship this Sunday as we sort out the violent reaction to Jesus’ sermon.

Promises Kept

When was the last time that you were in church? If you haven’t been in worship in recent memory, it can be difficult at times to go back. God’s people were brought tears when they heard God’s Law publicly read in Jerusalem for the first time in 150 years.

Miracle of Judgment

Changing water to blood may not be as fun as making a few hundred gallons of wine at a wedding, but the miracle we know as the first plague of Egypt was a powerful miracle of judgment on Pharaoh and his unbelieving nation. What can and can we not say about this event as we apply it to our lives? How can we see this as a miracle of redemption for God’s Old Testament people? Watch and find out.

Washing Machine

A thunderous voice, a dove descending on a man – these events drew plenty of attention to Jesus of Nazareth.  This Sunday we’ll go deeper into our Epiphany Season and see Jesus revealed as the Son of God – the Christ.  What does baptism mean for us?  What did it mean for Jesus?  We’ll answer these questions this Sunday.
