Liked what you heard this Sunday? Couldn’t make it to church? Either way we’ve got you covered. Sermon’s are posted each week and are available for download, to share, discuss or reflect upon.
9.15.19 The Heart Is Free
What a week: a little snow, a lot of rain, and even more gorgeous sunshine. I love this time of year, it helps me behold the beauty of creation.
I wonder if it could also be a season to behold the beauty of our true selves. When all our masks and disguises fall away and we are free to reflect the brightness and beauty of God that is within us.
9.8.19 Freedom In God
Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.
9.1.19 Holy Nudges
I am eager to share with you tomorrow some reflections on the story of Moses’ encounter with the burning bush, when he turns aside from his regular path to notice this sight that is quite out of the ordinary.
Sometimes the burning bushes in our lives are full of beauty and allure like those first signs of fall around us right now. Sometimes those burning bushes call us to pursue wonderful new opportunities and dreams.
8.25.19 A Life Well Lived
“We might not be the ones to change the world. We might not belong to the few that “put a ding in the universe.” We might not be something the whole world would celebrate. But...In the little corners that we live; in the lives that we’ve played a part in, we should be nothing but unforgettable.”
― Nesta Jojoe Erskine
8.18.19 Youth Sunday!
Worship this Sunday will be very uplifting! The Youth will be sharing the message about their service trip to Guatemala. And there will be inspiring music by some of the talented children and youth singers in our church. I know the trip this year was particularly impactful as the youth grew in their own faith lives as a result of this amazing service opportunity to engage with the people of Guatemala. Thanks for your ongoing support that is helping to change the lives of the young people in our church and make a difference in the wider world.
8.11.19 Better Than Busy Pt. 3
Is there something more satisfying than being busy all the time? Is the answer simply to sit back, settle in and let the world go by? Or if you are feeling a bit more spiritual – to rest in God’s presence, to pray, to meditate? Or did Jesus have a far greater vision for a path toward a meaningful and fulfilling life?
Join us as we discover what Jesus called the blessed life. (Feel free to read ahead his famous Beatitudes that begin the Sermon on the Mount in Matthew 5.) Here Jesus mentions things like a deep connection to God, solidarity with those who mourn, commitment to peace and being hungry for justice as the priorities that will finally bring you a taste of honest fulfillment. These are the pursuits that will bring you the contentment your soul craves. Do these things and your life will be blessed and you will find yourself surrounded by others who share your desire to participate in God’s dream of blessing the world.
03.03.19 Love Never Fails
In the wake of “the vote” in the UMC, Pastor Tracy Hausman confronts the issues we face as a church, as a community, and as followers of Jesus Christ.
