Our scripture this week is Exodus 20:7, the Third Commandment, commonly referred to as the commandment to not take the Lord’s name in vain.
This week, we’ll look at the second commandment: that we shall make no graven images - we shall make no idols. What do idols look like in our life and times today? How do we continue to worship idols, and how can we redirect our worship?
This week, we’ll look at the first commandment: to make no other gods above the one true God.
This Sunday, we begin a new sermon series, “Among American Gods,” where we’ll be deeply exploring the meaning of each of the Ten Commandments in Exodus.
This week, we will look at a passage on Elijah from 1 Kings, and look at a very human story, of a very ordinary man, and what God does to care for him and renew him.
As we look to close out our Cruciform Life series soon, Corey will lead us through the rest of 1 Corinthians 15. We'll explore together what the future of God's ultimate redemption of creation and resurrection of our bodies means for our present.
This Sunday, we'll hear from Marilyn Borst, from the Outreach Foundation, as she speaks on Romans 1, and how the global church and the local church need each other.
This Sunday, Pastor Rick Hutton will lead us through more of 1 Corinthians 15.
This Easter Sunday, we are looking at 1 Corinthians 15 and the great crescendo of Jesus's story: that his death was not the end of his story. No, instead, in his resurrection we see first that he is who he says he was. And secondly, we are given a beautiful picture of what the cruciform life leads to: new life.
In our second sermon on 1 Corinthians 13 in this series, we’ll do a deep dive into the qualities of love that Paul names in verses 4-7. And we'll explore how these ideals are simply not natural to us, and without a deep experience of God’s love in Christ we will get nowhere with love.
Chapter by chapter in this letter to the Corinthians, Paul has been trying to demonstrate how in nearly every situation they are choosing to live by the self-centered practices of the world rather than the self-giving way of Jesus. Now, in the famous 13th chapter, he employs his coupe de grace through his extended meditation on love which we will explore together this week.
As Americans, it seems our greatest cultural value is freedom. But what does that mean as followers of Christ? Paul writes of a different kind of freedom, a cruciform freedom. Like everything we have looked at in this series, he commends a way of approaching life and freedom that is completely upside-down.
What does it mean for us to live out the cruciform identity in our physical bodies? This is the question we are looking at this week.
What are the marks of a person’s identity that has been shaped by the cross? That’s the question we’re exploring this week. The human ego is constantly trying to establish a sense of self-worth and significance through all sorts of ways, but we are called to entrust our sense of self to the Lord, the one we truly belong to.
In the second chapter of his first letter to the Corinthians, Paul continues to jab at the Corinthians misguided notions of wisdom and power. When it comes to money, power, beauty, leadership, status, security, or a myriad of other issues, are you still living by what the world considers smart, admirable and worthwhile? Paul is calling you back to the foolishness of the upside down wisdom of the cross. Become a fool so you can again be wise.
If the message of the cross is true, it means the secret to the universe is something we rarely if ever want to believe: that power is meted out through weakness. If the message of the cross is true, it means we who believe it are called to live a cruciform, a cross-shaped, life. This Lent, let’s pray that the Lord renews our vision of the cross and how we can live according to it.
This week is our annual Youth Sunday, where students from our Student Ministry lead us in nearly all aspects of worship. This year, we'll be looking at 2 Timothy 4 together.
In our last message of this four week series, we are looking at the Beginning of Work. As we’ve been saying throughout this month, we were all made for four key relationships: our relationship with God, self, others and creation. In this final message, we will learn about how God has called us to be cultivators and co-creators with him in our relationship to the created order.
This week, we'll look at the beginning of our relationships with others, and how the essence of our personhood, as designed by our Creator, is inherently communal.
In the second week of our vision series, we're looking at the beginning of human identity in Genesis 1, and how we were created as image bearers of God and for the flourishing of his created order.
This week, we're starting a new vision sermon series, looking at the first two chapters of Genesis-- the ultimate beginning of all things. To start, we'll explore the beginning of all creation and how God deemed it all good.
We will be holding all regular services on December 31. Richard Haney will be preaching, and will share with us from the last phrase of the John 1:14 verse: "...full of grace and truth."
Join us on Christmas Eve. It will be a special time together as we celebrate the newborn King, and continue to explore the depth, meaning, and mystery of the incarnation.
Join us on the morning of Christmas Eve for a special service at 10:00 a.m.. Rick Hutton will share a brief homily, and we'll listen to a special musical presentation of Vivaldi's Gloria.
The inescapable and elusive glory of God is finally accessible through the Incarnation, the Word became flesh. This week, we’ll explore what the glory of God, made manifest in the person of Jesus, means for our lives, our relationships, and our work in the world.
God wants to dwell with you. With us. That is one of the great themes of the Scriptures, and all of it is centered in and made possible through the Incarnation of Jesus. This week, we’ll explore this great theme and its implications for our lives, our relationships, and our work in the world.
This week we start a new sermon series on Dwell, as we observe Advent and prepare for Christmas. Over the next weeks, we'll have an extended meditation on one verse: John 1:14. This week we begin by looking at the phrase, "the word became flesh."
This week, we're looking at how Jesus calls us not to just give of our resources, our time, our finances, our families, but actually our whole lives.
This week, we're looking at how Jesus challenges our definitions of family and who is in our families, and also how he calls us to be a part of his "family business."
In this series on giving, we’ve spent the first two Sundays talking about giving our money. But this Sunday we’ll turn to consider what it means to give an even more precious resource: our time.
