May 13, 2018. How do we as Christians live in a society that is so politicized? That is so anxious? That is so materialistic? That tells us again and again that we should look out for ourselves first? How do we live out our lives as children of God? How do we live in the world and for the world without being of the world? Pastor Penny takes on ...…
 
May 6, 2018. Pastor Penny tells us today that Jesus has chosen us. When he told his followers that he would be leaving them and asked them to carry on his work, they were devastated and scared.

April 29, 2018. Pastor Keith preaches today on Jesus preparing the disciples for his departure by using the image of grape vines being pruned. Like the earliest Christians, cut off from Jesus and going out into the world to spread the gospel, we too are God's vineyard.

October 6, 2019. We see it all around us: injustice, violence, strife, contention. In challenging times, what's a person to do? Is our faith enough?

April 8, 2018. Christians are a diverse group, but we are all gathered together in the risen Lord's offer of peace, wholeness, and newness. For us, the resurrection is more an experience than something to be proved. Pastor Keith discusses this idea today, and suggests that maybe the resurrection is not about something to believe, but about the ...…
 
April 1, 2018. Easter and April Fools' Day fall on the same date this year. Some say we Christians are foolish to celebrate a man who came back from the dead. How believable is it after all?

March 25, 2018. As Jesus rode into Jerusalem, the adoring crowds shouted, "Hosanna!" On this Palm Sunday Pastor Penny preaches on that word, which means "save us."

March 18, 2018. If we were witnesses of the crucifixion -- the blood, the violence, and the inhumanity of it -- would we be able to see the glory in it?

March 4, 2018. The sermon today is on the story in John 2 of Jesus cleansing the temple. Did that system of animal butchering and sacrifice make people feel as though they were in the presence of God? And what about the people walled off from each other: women, gentiles, tax collectors? Does our temple need to be cleansed? Pastor Penny offers s ...…
 
March 11, 2018. It may be the best-known verse in the Bible. "For God so loved the world..." (John 3:16). In his sermon today, Pastor Keith discusses how this verse applies not specifically to us, but to the whole world including us. Jesus calls us to love the world in the same way God does. God loves the world through us. *** [Keywords: 2018 A ...…

February 11, 2018. The Transfiguration of Jesus on the mountain gave the disciples a glimpse of the love that God the Father had for his Son.

February 4, 2018. Guest pastor Tom Schoenherr talks today about the importance of rest and renewal. Just as Jesus knew that he couldn't heal everybody all the time and would seek out a quiet place for prayer, so too we need to remember that if we don't step back sometimes we run the risk of losing our connection with God. *** [Keywords: 2018 23 ...…
 
January 28, 2018. Mark tells us that Jesus began his ministry by teaching with authority in the synagogue. Some types of authority are granted by institutions. In Jesus' time the religious leaders and scribes wielded authority that depended upon years of study. But Jesus' authority came from within. He broke the rules. Pastor Penny preaches tod ...…
 
January 21, 2018. When is it the right time? Today Pastor Penny talks about two kinds of time: the ordinary time that we measure, and God's time. Jesus' disciples lived and worked in ordinary time, but they began to see sparks of God's time in their lives when they started to understand who Jesus was. If we know what to look for, we can catch g ...…
