  • VACATION – Grange Fair – Family, Friends & Food | Sermon from 8/20/2017


    Vacation Series-web

    For many people in Centre County, summer vacation plans always include The Grange Fair. Whether you tent, take an RV or just go for the day, the Grange Fair is a tradition for many, but why do people go? When I have asked people that question I have consistently gotten one of three answers, to be with family, to see my friends, to eat food. What many of us love about vacations is time with family and friends and the opportunity to eat good food. Family, friends and food are not just the foundation of the fair and our vacations, they are the building blocks of life and faith. Join us as we explore the role of family, friends and food in our lives and in our faith.

    Vacation Series-web

    Going on vacation with a GPS to guide your way can be great, until you miss the turn and hear that dreaded word… recalculating. Whether it is a missed turn or a closed road or some unexpected event, there are times we all have to recalculate our vacations and there are also times we have to recalculate our lives. When the unexpected happens, there are three things that are needed to help us keep going but in a new direction: faith, courage and humility. Join us as we learn from the journeys of Jonah and Paul how to recalculate.

  • VACATION – Rest Stops are Important | Sermon from 8/6/2017


    Vacation Series-web

    I am a destination hiker. I like to go straight to the desired location and then stop to enjoy the view, but I have hiking friends who really enjoy the journey. They like to stop and look at flowers, trees and anything else they find interesting along the way. Over the years they have slowed me down and have taught me that rest stops are important. In our life and faith we can get so goal and destination oriented that we forget to seek God along the way. Join us as we learn from Moses and Jesus how rest stops can help us learn, listen and love more faithfully.

  • I Believe – The Apostles’ Creed – Resurrection | Sermon from 7/23/2017


    I Believe-sweb

    This Sunday we end our look at the Apostle’s Creed by looking at the end of life. While the creed affirms that we believe in the resurrection of the body and in life everlasting, the specifics of this are unclear. While the teaching of Jesus and the witness of scripture clearly points us to a resurrection and eternal life, there are no solid details provided. So what do we believe about a bodily resurrection and what is life in heaven like? Join us as we explore these questions and more.

  • I Believe – The Apostles’ Creed – Forgiveness | Sermon from 7/16/2017


    I Believe-sweb

    This week we see that the focus of the Apostles’ Creed is not on guilt but grace. It doesn’t point out that we are sinners but instead assures us that we are forgiven. While the forgiveness of sin does imply that we are sinners, the focus is not on our failure but God’s love. Forgiveness of sin was the core of Jesus ministry and teaching and it is what helps hold us together as the church. This week we will hear once again about the forgiveness of our sin and be reminded that we need to forgive others.

    This time we continue our look at Jesus in the Apostles’ Creed. From the creed we learn that Jesus is both Savior and Lord. What is it that Jesus saves us from and what does he save us for?

  • I Believe – The Apostles Creed – Jesus Christ part 1 | Sermon from 6/18/2017


    I Believe-sweb

    From his birth to his death and resurrection, the Apostles’ Creed says more about Jesus than anything else. We are not only told some facts about Jesus’ life, but we are given titles to call him (Lord) and told the ministry Jesus was given (to judge the living and the dead). This and the next message dig into this section of the creed taking time to look at both the life of Jesus (June 18) and then the titles given to him and the work of his saving grace (June 25). What we believe about Jesus sets us apart from others and defines our faith. What we believe about Jesus also shapes our lives and our futures. Join us as we explore what the Apostles’ Creed tells us about Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, our Lord.
