Feeding the Multitudes… Again

This Sunday’s text is likely familiar. Most of us are familiar with the story of Jesus feeding 5000 people. But on a close reading, this one is different—and in fact is the second time in just a few chapters that Jesus feeds thousands!

When Religion Gets in the Way

Why would these religious leaders be criticizing people for the way they wash their hands? Is this simply about hygiene? Or is it something more?

Not in This Town

As we continue from last week’s text, we find ourselves deep into questions of identity and awareness. Jesus has been healing and performing miracles, and in these stories word of Jesus continues to spread so that he is followed by large crowds. But when Jesus goes to his hometown, it is here that he is doubted.

The Other Side

In this Sunday’s text, Jesus invites the disciples to join him in crossing to the other side of the lake. In doing so, they find themselves in a storm so terrifying that even experienced fishermen fear that they’ll drown.

A Sinner’s Party

As we begin a series on the Gospel of Mark, we read that religious leaders began to critique Jesus very early in his ministry.

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.

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?

Draw Crowds

This Sunday we continue our Healing Hands series. Adam Marshall-Lopez asks “Are we drawing a crowd?” What did that mean for Jesus? What does it mean in our complex world today?

Become Known

This Sunday we continue our Healing Hands series as Pastor Christopher brings a message inviting us to consider the reputations of John the Baptist and Jesus.

Send Forth

This Sunday we continue our Healing Hands series! We continue to explore Jesus’ healing work, and this week explore how an experience of healing prepares us to go into the world as disciples.
