Sermon for March 15, 2020 - The Third Sunday in Lent - The theme for our service today is “living water.” This is what Jesus offers to the Samaritan woman whom he met at the well – water that “wells up to eternal life for God's people” (v. 14 NIV). Just as the Samaritan woman had exactly what Jesus needed in that moment – water – he had precisely what she needed as well, even if she didn't know it: grace and forgiveness and...

Sermon for March 8, 2020 - The Second Sunday in Lent - Real fasting isn’t about putting on a religious show or losing a few pounds. It’s about aligning ourselves with God and God’s purposes. Real fasting helps us to recognize our own needs and the needs of others, turning us toward the things that matter to God. It’s not about merely abstaining from food but sharing it with the hungry, providing hospitality to the poor, clothing th...

Sermon for March 1, 2020 - The First Sunday in Lent - On this communion Sunday, we consider another individual who was commended by Jesus. The anointing of Christ with the precious perfume was extravagant. It was a gift beyond the woman's income. But she was so grateful that she did not count the cost. She gave the best she had. Some viewed it as waste. Some viewed Christ's ultimate sacrifice as waste, but through it, God c...

Sermon for February 23, 2020 - Transfiguration Sunday - On this final Sunday after Epiphany, we conclude our focus on relationships with the most important relationship of all – the relationship between ourselves and God. At the transfiguration, as at Jesus’ baptism, God affirms him to be “the beloved son.” What’s the status of your relationship with God today?

Scripture Lessons: Acts 17:24-28 and Matthew 17:1-9

Sermon for February 9, 2020 -  In this month of February, a lot of couples are wondering about the “status” of their relationship. In our three-week series on relationships, we’ll examine three important relationships that are mentioned in the Bible – the spousal relationship, the parental relationship, and our relationship with God. The first two have a great deal to teach us about the third.

Sermon for February 2, 2020 - Those Whom Christ Commended: Mary of Bethany - Our focus today will be on the issue of priorities. Mary was commended by Jesus because she had her priorities in order, with her Lord in first place. The most important question in the living of our lives is often not "what do we do" but "what do we do first?" What is so vital that it must be done now?

Sermon for January 5, 2020 - Epiphany Sunday - We continue our communion Sunday sermon series, “Those Whom Christ Commended,” with the meeting between Jesus and the expert in the law (Scribe) in Mark 12. Jesus commends him by saying, “you are not far from the Kingdom of God.”(Mark 12:34) The people of our time have never seen Jesus in the flesh, but they can see his reflection in us, through lives made loving by our contact with hi...
