to live completely for Christ...

Visible Reconciliation (2 Corinthians 5:11-21)

Paul is clear in 2 Corinthians, that we are all to be ministers. But what does that mean? What does it mean to be a minister?

Cross-Shaped Serving (John 13:11-20)

John 13 is a central chapter in the shape of John's telling of the Gospel. In the act of foot-washing, we see Jesus communicating a deeper understanding of who He and His Father are.

A Cross-Shaped Existence (Mark 8:27-38)

To be a disciple is to be one who spends his/her life apprenticed to our Master, Jesus Christ. We are always in a learning/growing relationship. We do not acquire information about God, but skills in faith.

Special Speaker: Pastor James Dolinger

This morning, our youth pastor, Rev. James Dolinger, brings us the message.

The Mighty One has Done Great Things (Luke 1:39-45, 46-55)

Advent reminds us that God makes and keeps promises. In the midst of this, the people of God do not wait for the promises to be fulfilled, we live knowing the promises will be fulfilled.

Our Preparation (Luke 3:7-18)

This passage is about judgement and most of the time when we hear that phrase, it brings about fear. However, if someone harmed you, then judgement upon them would be a good thing, right? In this passage, John the Baptist sees judgement was good news and we should too.

Straight Paths and Smooth Roads (Luke 3:1-6)

It is the church that sees through the darkness of the present into the light of the Kingdom.

The Coming of the Son of Man (Luke 21:25-36)

This morning, we are introduced to two new words. Anamnesis is 'lived memory.' The second word is prolepsis, which is 'the not yet now.' These words may seem odd, yet they play an important role in how Christians see the world.

Kindness is at a Table (2 Samuel 9:1-11)

The kitchen table might be the most theological piece of furniture in our homes. Don't underestimate the power of having a seat at the table.
