We often experience darkness as a negative - the absence of light. But throughout Scripture, God meets people in the middle of the dark. And it is often there, in the beauty of the dark, that God's love and grace are revealed. This Advent, we are invited to experience Hope in the Dark. Texts this week: Luke 1:26-38 and Luke 1:46-55…

In our latest worship series we are looking at the stories that Jesus told - the parables that are so familiar to many of them. In this first sermon in the series, we hear the explanation that Jesus himself offered for the parables, Matthew 13:10-17. This passage gives us an invitation to dig deeper in our reading of all the parables, to read them …
 
What if now - in the middle of all that is happening - is the perfect time to be a community of faith? What if THIS is exactly what God has called us for? Together we dig deep into the story of Esther and discover the ways God is working behind the scenes in our lives. This week, we are looking at Chapters 7-9 of the Book of Esther…

Unprecedented. Unforeseen. Extraordinary. Unparalleled. To say that 2020 has been weird is like saying that Michael Jordan was a "pretty good" basketball player. It seems as though normal - the normal we expected and anticipated for our lives this year, the normal we have come to count on - normal has died. What does this mean for our lives and our…
 
What does the day of Pentecost say to us in the middle of a respiratory crisis; on the week that George Floyd was murdered and said "I can't breathe"? What does it mean when the crucified one - who was killed in a legal, brutal, public execution comes back and breathes on the disciples? Texts this week are Acts 2:1-21 and John 20:19-23. Our primary…
 
The last sermon from our Unsung Heroes of Scripture series. The story of the women who followed Jesus is one of the most consistently overlooked stories of the Bible - a story of faithful compassion, service, and generosity. Our Scripture for the day was Luke 8:1-3 and Matthew 27:54-56, 28:1-8By Pastor David L. Hansen

Today we encounter Shiphrah & Puah - women who show us the power of ordinary people in the face of the trial of life. You can read the story of Shiphrah and Puah in Exodus 1 (Once again I am indebted to th…

Our first Unsung Hero is Hagar - the slave who is overlooked and forgotten. Encounter in her story a new name for God. Read the story of Hagar in Genesis 16. (Cited in this sermon is the work of Dr. Wil Gafne…
 
We all have questions. Today, with Thomas the Apostle, we bring forward some of our questions. We tackle all sorts of little topics in this sermon: the Trinity, suffering, baptism, the role of Judas, and the classic: Will pets go to heaven. Listen as we wrestle with these questions - and wonder: What would you like to learn more about as you grow i…
 
Loving God's story is not just about learning to tell the story ourselves - learning to share our experience of God with others. It is also about learning to listen to God and to others, so that we can truly hear what God saying through the people we encounter. Texts include James 1:16-20 and 1 Kings 19:8-13.

On TV, in advertising, on the big screen - we are wrapped up in stories. But often in our faith we forget the power of stories to transform our lives and the world. Our current series, "I Love to Tell the Story," returns us to the power of the story of who God is and our relationship with God. Sermon 2: Whose Story? Scriptures include: Deuteronomy …
