At Christmas, we are all longing for peace, but often find stress instead. Yet, peace is possible! God is One who gives peace to all, and this peace is seen so clearly in Jesus. This Christmas season, may we slow down and receive the peace God freely offers.
Jesus is the One who brings hope, even when we find ourselves in situations that seem hopeless. As we follow Jesus, our Living Hope, we can share his great hope with those around us. Also, as a church, we believe fellowship and discussion are important. Following this brief message, there are some questions that we discussed around tables on Friday night. You are invited to listen to them and reflect upon them.

Amen

November 22, 2019
Amen" is often thought of as a way to end prayers. However, "amen" can also be a powerful prayer in itself. When we pray "amen," we are proclaiming God's goodness, aligning ourselves with God's will, honoring covenant, and saying, "Let it be so!" Amen!

Thanks

November 8, 2019
Is it possible to give thanks, even when things around us seem difficult? The author of Psalm 136 says, "Yes." Because of God's character, creation, community, and care for daily needs, we can be people who continually pray this simple: "Thanks."

Help

November 1, 2019
With so much to do, life can easily feel overwhelming. King Solomon, in the Old Testament, also felt overwhelmed, which led him to ask God for help. We, too, can ask God for help when we pray that short, one-word prayer: "Help."

Trustworthy

October 25, 2019
God has blessed us in so many different ways with so many different gifts. How are we using those gifts? God desires for us to use our gifts and "talents" in a way that glorifies God and helps those around us.
What is the highest value? Paul writes that it is not finding success or having many accomplishments. Rather, the highest value is knowing and being known by Jesus, and compared to it, everything else looks like "rubbish."
The things we worry about compete for mastery of our lives. When put God first, we are free from worry. When we trust God, we are free to leave the results of our obedience to our loving, merciful, glorious savior, Jesus.
God is love, and God's love for us has been revealed perfectly in Jesus. As loved people who are created in God's image, we respond to God's love by loving others and being generous.
In the New Testament, we read the greatest story of all time: the story of Jesus and His great love for us! But how did certain books make it into the New Testament? And can we trust the Gospel accounts of Jesus in the New Testament? In this sermon, we look together at the reliability of the New Testament.
In John 17, Jesus prayed for all of his followers, both present and future, to be one. Even in the midst of differences, including differences on what we believe about human sexuality, Christians can truly live as "one body."
In the Bible, we read the greatest story of all time: the story of a loving God who willingly died and rose again to restore us. However, some parts of the Bible confuse us, especially parts where God seems violent. How do we read those passages in light of Jesus, the Word of God?
What is the Bible? What is it about? Why should I read it? What is the Word of God? The Bible, composed of 66 individual books, tells the greatest story ever told and testifies to Jesus Christ, the Word of God.
The most important thing we can do as a church is love Jesus. When we fall more and more in love with Jesus, our lives will be transformed. Jesus invites us to fellowship with Him every single day, and we have the opportunity to say "Yes" to the invitation.
In a world filled with condemnation, the church can be a "community of prayerful love." Through offering compassion (and not condemnation!) and through prayer, we can look more and more like the community Jesus described in Matthew 7.
