June 9, 2019: Testify

If you were with us last week, you’ll remember that we’re spending the next few Sundays exploring the book of Acts with a specific question in mind: what is God’s mission in the world, and how is that mission accomplished when Jesus isn’t here in flesh and bone? So as...

June 2, 2019: The Space Between

Today, and for the next few weeks, we’ll be diving in to the book of Acts – the full title is ‘Acts of the Apostles’, which is a surprisingly accurate description. Written by the same person who wrote the gospel according to Luke, Acts is all about what happens after...

May 26, 2019: If You Love Me

Today, we’re going to hear from Jesus’ Farewell Discourse in the gospel of John. This is Jesus’ last night with the disciples before he’s betrayed and arrested, so he’s giving them some final encouragement and instruction. But the interesting part is that the...

May 5, 2019 – At The Table

As we continue in our Easter celebrations this morning, we’re going to look at a well-known story from the book of Acts. By this point, some time has passed since the resurrection – thanks to the work of the Twelve and others, the gospel had spread from Jerusalem to...

April 21, 2019: Mary Magdalene & The Risen Jesus

Mary Magdalene had followed Jesus for months—possibly even years. The gospel of Luke tells us that he had healed her, and drove away the demons that haunted and hunted her, and afterwards she and a group of women helped provide for Jesus and the disciples as they...

Today, we start wrapping up our Lenten series, where we have heard the stories of faithful people who each followed Jesus in vastly different ways. But first, we’re going to hear from Luke’s account of Jesus riding in to Jerusalem for the last time. Scripture: Luke...

April 7, 2019: Dr. Ida Scudder – Visionary & Missionary

As we’ve journeyed through Lent, we have heard the stories of ministers, prophets, rebels, saints, and celebrities. But today, as we continue our series of stories of faithful people, we’re going to talk about a woman who is well-known and well-loved in certain parts...

March 31, 2019: St. Therese of Lisieux – The Little Flower

We continue this morning in our series called In The Name of Jesus, telling the stories of seven faithful people who came before us – each of whom followed Jesus in their own very particular way. We’ve already heard the stories of Fred Rogers, Harriet Tubman, and the...

March 24, 2019: Elijah – The Great Prophet

As we continue our Lenten sermon series focused on telling the stories of the faithful people who have gone before us, this week we’re going to switch it up a little bit. Rather than tell a contemporary story, we’re going to flip all the way back in our Bibles to the...

March 17, 2019: Harriet Tubman

Today, we continue our sermon series called In The Name of Jesus – we’re spending the season of Lent looking at 7 very different people who lived out their faith in very particular ways. Last week, we heard about Rev. Fred Rogers, and this week we’re jumping back a...
