Sermons on New Testament

Beginning with the End

This week’s message begins the Advent season and the Christian year. Specifically, we prepare for Christmas by exploring Jesus through the eyes of his mother, Mary. And through this lens, we begin at the end.

By Who & How You Serve

As we conclude our stewardship series, we shift the focus from measurements of power and influence to measurements of service to others.

By How & What You Give

Continuing our Stewardship series, we explore Jesus’ parable of the talents (the valuable coins). This parable reminds us that we are given gifts that must be nurtured to grow.

By Who & How You Love

As we continue our Stewardship series, we explore Jesus’ parable on sowing seeds in different kinds of soil. This parable reminds us that we must be prepared to receive the seeds of God’s love offered to us. But how do we know we’re ready?

Questions of Faith

For the next two weeks, pastors and leaders will respond to questions submitted by congregation members. Pastor Bob and Pastor Christopher take the lead today. What questions do you have about faith and/or your church?

Laboring in Love

Pastor Bob brings a message encouraging us to examine how our community sees us. Are we a presence of the body of Christ?

Reconciling Ministry

This Sunday we continue our (short) series called Generation to Generation. This week, Pastor Christopher brings a message celebrating the diversity of PB UMC!

Projecting Grace

This Sunday we begin a new (short) series called Generation to Generation. During this first week, we recall our history of serving others in varying ways and how this lays the foundation for future service to our community and beyond.

Move …In Love

This Sunday, Pastor Bob wrestles with a difficult text that has brought comfort to some and been used as a tool for oppression by others. How might we understand this text today?

Give Thanks

This Sunday, Pastor Bob returns to bring a message on gratitude in the face of challenge.
