Our scripture this week is focusing on the tenth and final commandment— thou shall not covet. Join us as we explore what this looked like to the Israelites, and the bearing it holds for us today.
Our scripture this week is focusing on the ninth commandment — do not bear false testimony. We’ll look at how this commandment addresses not only blatant lies, but the attitude of heart’s in what we say about others.
Our scripture this week is focusing on the eighth commandment — do not steal. We’ll look at this commandment from the Old and New Testament perspectives, as well as what this could look like for us today.
Our scripture this week is focusing on the seventh commandment — do not commit adultery. We’ll look at this commandment from many different levels — from the specific Old Testament command, to what Jesus says in the New Testament, and how we are-so often- unfaithful to the God who is always faithful to us.
Our scripture this week is focusing on the sixth commandment — you shall not murder. As we’ll explore together on Sunday, this commandment reaches far beyond the act of physical murder, but in how we see one another, speak about one another, and care for one another.
This week our focus on the fifth commandment, “Honor Your Father and Mother” will demonstrate that this commandment is like an overall summary for the entire second group of commandment and that these commandments relate to all our human relationships.
Our scripture this week is Exodus 20:8-10, the fourth commandment, where we are instructed to keep the sabbath holy. We’ll explore what this has historically meant for God’s people throughout the scriptures, and what it may look like for us today.
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.
