Sermon Series

The View from the Back of the Line

November 25th, 2018

Pastor Paul is preaching.

Matthew 20:1-16

“I’d love my community if it weren’t for all the people.”  Have you ever heard someone utter a statement to this effect?  Between God’s call to live in community with other believers and to serve and witness to all, following Jesus is going to inevitably require us to figure out how to work with other people.

In fact, Jesus doesn’t simply want us to “play well with others”, He models a ministry that includes a radical welcome, embracing, advocating for, and nurturing of all people, especially the ones we would otherwise struggle with.  Matthew’s parable of the workers in the vineyard is a prime example.  The Grinch’s heart grew three sizes as his attitude towards others was transformed by the Christmas spirit.  What’s in store for our hearts this Christmas?

Sermon Series - Bullhorn: Sharing Your Faith: August 5 - 26, 2018

Sharing your faith. I know that when many people see those three words they immediately start to sweat and run and hide. Why is it so difficult to tell others about Jesus Christ?

In my 23 years of ministry I have been asked time and time again by people in the churches that I serve, how do I share my faith? This month we will dig into the fundamentals of sharing our faith. We will ask WHY, WHO, WHAT, and HOW?

At the end of August we hope that you will see that it is much easier than you ever thought it was. I look forward to seeing you all four Sundays in August.

 

Week 1: Why?

Week 2: Who?

Week 3: What?

Week 4: How?

What Will You See?

December 31, 2017 - First Sunday After Christmas

Rev. Dan is preaching.

Matthew 25:31-46

As we get ready to say goodbye to 2017 and hello to 2018 we will be talking about an eye exam.

When we take an eye exam they ask us what we see. The scripture today is about an eye exam. Jesus is asking us all to look at the same people to see what we see. When you look at the world around you, do you see it as Jesus sees it or as you want to see it? Before we enter 2018 may we each receive an eye exam. May we go into 2018 seeing the world through the eyes of Christ. When and if we do that, the entire world will look far different than it has ever looked before. SEE!
