Holy Humor Sunday

In this Easter season, let us find laughter and joy in God’s sense of humor, Jesus’s clever parables, and an assortment of religious jokes!  Enjoy.

God Trusts Us

On this Easter Sunday, God trusts us to be perplexed and amazed at the empty tomb.  God trusts us to ask our questions and be open to answers coming in time.  Luke 24:1-12

In Remembrance of Me

On this Maundy Thursday, we engage in “remembrance,” and bring the past to the present and into the future. We remember Jesus’s commandment to eat the bread and drink the wine in “remembrance of” him and, in doing so, we “re-member” ourselves as individuals and the Body of Christ. 1 Corinthians 11:23-26.

Bless: You’re Probably Doing It Now

We continue with our Way of Love series and reflect on Bless: unselfishly loving and serving as we go about our daily lives. Jesus advocates for a culture of generosity in the Golden Rule and that culture is the foundation of being a Blessing to others, no matter what we are doing with our lives. Luke 6:27-38

Turn – Go Deep and Return to the Way of Jesus

This week in our Way of Love preaching series, we examine “turn”: to pause, listen, and choose to follow Jesus. Choosing to follow Jesus doesn’t just happen once, but over and over again when we stray from the path of Jesus in our weakness. Luke 5:1-11.

Learn – The Words of God are Living and Active

In our second sermon in our Way of Love sermon series, we explore the theology and practicalities of Learn: reading and reflecting daily on Scripture, especially the teachings and life of Jesus. Heb. 4:12-16, Mt. 13:44-53 Here’s a link to our resources page for The Way of Love series.
