Table Ethics

As we wrestle in the current COVID-19 pandemic with how to relate with one another, we might consider this alongside our ongoing series on gratitude and the illustration of the table.

Where Is God?

As we enter this Lenten season of spiritual introspection, we begin in earnest our exploration of gratitude. Culturally, we struggle even with the simplicity of thank-you cards. Perhaps we can push back from this and realize that everything we have is a gift from God, which begs this question: where is God?

Confess

This Sunday we conclude our short series on our Baptismal and Membership Vows. What does it mean to confess our faith?

Accept

This Sunday we continue our short series on our Baptismal and Membership Vows. This week’s message invites us to accept the gifts that God gives–not for ourselves, but to work toward God’s kingdom on earth as it is in heaven.

We Believe: Jesus

This week we examine the major portion of The Apostles’ Creed, focusing on Jesus. Quite a few theological statements are claimed in this central section of the creed. We explore what The Apostles’ Creed claims about Jesus and how these central claims form our faith.

Everything’s Alright

This Sunday, we continue our Lenten worship series with a familiar text about Jesus being anointed with oil. John’s version of this story brings about thoughts of scarcity, but perhaps that’s the wrong way to think about it. Could there be a reading of this story that instead reminds us of God’s generosity?

Feed the World

This Sunday we conclude our Healing Hands series. Sunday’s message includes the familiar story of Jesus feeding a large crowd as we explore with our youth the ways that our faith meets both our practical needs as well as our spiritual needs.

Sacrifice

This Sunday we near the end of our series on Les Misérables with Jesus’ commandment to love one another as we have been loved.

Missing Jesus

This Sunday we begin our newest sermon series based on the French novel and world-famous musical, Les Misérables!
