We begin a new series on our Baptism and membership vows. In this first vow, we commit to renounce, we commit to reject, we commit to repent.
This year has been one where we have returned to basics because members of this congregation have been asking important questions.
We conclude our series on The Apostle’s Creed exploring The Holy Spirit. Generally, we might celebrate Pentecost thinking about the Gifts of the Spirit, but Paul also reminds us of the Fruits of the Spirit. Sometimes we are able to see these in unexpected places.
This Sunday’s message explores a belief in the forgiveness of sins. In doing so, we must understand both sin and forgiveness and how God’s grace is present in both.
Continuing through the Apostles’ Creed, we explore what it means to be the church. It’s not just about showing up in worship every once in a while…
This week’s focus is connected to the Easter story and resurrection. The mention of resurrection in the Apostles’ Creed is brief, so what impact does it have on our faith today?
This week’s focus is the major portion of the creed, focusing on Jesus. Quite a few theological statements are claimed in this central section of the creed. This week we will explore what The Apostles’ Creed claims about Jesus and how these central claims form our faith.
We have recently celebrated Resurrection! Hallelujah! But how do we do that when our denomination is in turmoil?
This week we begin a new series on The Apostles’ Creed, one of the earliest statements of the Christian faith. We will explore the opening statement: “I believe in God the Father Almighty, creator of heaven and earth.” Is it possible that everything we know about the God of the universe is still incomplete?
This first Sunday after Easter, we may still be absorbing the wonder of Jesus’ resurrection – or perhaps, like Thomas, we want more certainty.
