Are you a person of peace? Or are you a person that contributes to the divisiveness and division we regularly see on the news, on social media, in our communities, and even sometimes in our homes? Likely, you are a bit of both. In this week’s sermon, Pastor Alex encourages you not to create scapegoats out of those you find difficult or disagree with. Instead, he asks you consider how God is calling you to be a person of peace...

Have you ever felt something so deep in your heart, but were unable to explain it? Sometimes words fail us when we are talking about subjects that are bigger than we are. While we all encounter God in a variety of ways - as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit - explaining to someone (or ourselves) how these three are also one can be difficult. On this Holy Trinity Sunday, Pastor Alice encourages us to focus less on understanding how...

You are claimed as part of Jesus’ flock. Even if you think you are not good enough. Even if you think you’ve not done enough. You are still claimed by the Good Shepherd because you are known by Him.

What does it mean to be on a mission from God? Sharing our wealth and time. Forgiving others. Acting out of love. These simple, everyday actions are signs we are participants in God’s mission in our world. Re-connect with last weekend’s sermon: https://youtu.be/VaxYNRKPSGQ?t=1741.

Does the presence of doubt mean the absence of faith? Thankfully, no. Similar to how Thomas needed to see Jesus’ wounds to overcome his doubts, we need look for how God is blessing and working in our lives to do the same for us.

It's more than ancient history. Jesus continues to shape and influence our lives, even to this day. When we give generously of ourselves, advocate for those on the margins, care for the sick, and forgive those that have wronged us we are living a life inspired by the resurrected Christ.

All means all. No matter what you have or have not done. No matter how good or bad you think you are. Christ’s sacrifice on the cross is for you, the person across the street, the person on the other side of the world, and everyone in between. All means all.

Where have you seen someone exhibit care that could only be described as “prodigious?” Pastor Alice shares the story of the prodigal son and challenged our understanding of the word “prodigal.” “Prodigal also means giving profusely, lavish generosity, wild wasteful abundance…” Where have you seen wild, wasteful, and lavish generosity? Not just financial genrosity, but lavish in generosity of spirit? Lavish in their kindness or enc...

With all the suffering and hurt in the world, what can we possibly do that will actually make a difference? Sometimes it’s hard to know exactly what you can do to tackle problems that are so big. Rest in the fact that it is not all on you – but that reassurance doesn’t mean that we aren’t called to act. Reconnect with this past week’s sermon (https://youtu.be/q5AnWd6A018?t=1808) and hear Pastor Heidi talk about simple things...

What does the fox say? Foxes may say a lot of different things, but the intent is always clear: to divide us and prey on the weak and vulnerable. Find those instances in your life where someone or something is promoting division or discord and you tell that fox that you are going to keep doing what God has called you to do: to share the Good News with anyone who will listen. Reconnect with last weekend’s message: https://you...

How many times have you gone into Lent without a Lenten discipline already picked out? Are you going to give up chocolate again this year? Maybe it’s back to not watching YouTube on your phone… OR MAYBE, think about doing something just a little bit different this year. Write a note to a friend. Give a neighbor a helping hand. Give generously of your time and resources. We never know how the seeds we plant in our daily lives...

How many times have you been cut off in traffic? Probably happened a few times in your life. And then, you responded by driving more aggressively around that car, yelling at the person, honking your horn, or done something else to escalate the situation? Pastor Alex reminds us that Jesus’ message of loving our enemy is about us taking control of ourselves in a situation and ending the conflict.

If you have trouble hearing God’s talk to you it might be because His voice is being crowded out by the many distractions and noises of our modern lives.
