The Message

As we gather in worship and praise, we are reminded that in our Sunday afternoon confirmation worship service, 28 young people will make public profession of their God-given faith and commit to serving the Lord as active members of His Church.  In this service, we too, will recommit ourselves to being an active part of the […]

Mary and Martha: Sit down!

As we gather we are blessed to celebrate Mother’s Day today, thanking our God for the incredible gift of our moms.  Our theme for the day, including the sermon theme and text, reminds us that in the midst of our crazy and chaotic lives, “one thing is necessary”: learning from Jesus!

What if…we put Faith above Fear?

AS WE GATHER:  “What if…we put faith above fear?”  Fear is a part of life in this sinful, fallen world.  But trust in God drives away fear!  When, by God’s grace, we are able to trust Him, we need not fear anything, because He is Lord of all.  We are free to live confidently and […]

What If…We Put Others Before Ourselves?

AS WE GATHER:   “What if?”   As we continue our series, today we contemplate “What if…we put others before ourselves?”  The call to discipleship is a call to service.  As we serve our neighbor, we serve Jesus.  In the midst of a self-centered culture, God help us to put others before ourselves!

What If We Put God First?

As we gather in worship of the risen Lord Jesus our current series is, “What If…?”  We will see how life can be meaningful and fulfilling when it is not lived only for one’s self, but lived in our faith relationship with the Lord.  This week our theme is, “What If We Put God First?”

I AM the Resurrection and the Life

Welcome to our rejoicing community as we celebrate the Good News of Christ’s Resurrection! The stone has been rolled away and the grave is empty. Christ is risen! Our Savior has overcome sin, death, the devil and hell for us.  And we are assured that not only has Jesus risen, but when He returns on the […]

We Have Met the Enemy

As we gather we approach the Lord’s Table with humble, repentant hearts, receiving the true Body and the true Blood of Jesus with the bread and the wine.  As we partake in this Sacrament we thank the Lord who imparts to us the forgiveness of sins, a strengthening of faith and the promise of life eternal.

I AM the Vine

AS WE GATHER “Hosanna to the Son of David!”  If the people did not say the stones, would make sure the world would hear what was happening on that day.  When Jesus rode in to Jerusalem he was fulfilling the prophecy of the prophet Zechariah, “Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout aloud, O daughter of […]

The Thief on the Cross… in Paradise with Christ

AS WE GATHER Turn and Repent.  Two thieves were crucified with Jesus, only one repented.  With a healthy fear of the Lord this thief recognizes his sin, knowing he is receiving the punishment he deserves for his crime.  His request for grace is simple… “Jesus remember me when you come into your kingdom.”  Words of overwhelming […]

I AM the Way, and the Truth, and the Life

As We Gather:  On the night that He was betrayed, Jesus made a very bold claim:  “I am the Way and the Truth and the Life.”  We know and believe that Jesus is the only way – to forgiveness, life and salvation.  In a world that often assumes many ways to God and many ways […]
