  • The Reel Christmas Story – How the Grinch Stole Christmas | Sermon from 12/4/2016

    Reel 940x250

    This year we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the classic Christmas cartoon, How the Grinch Stole Christmas. From 1966 to the present, the story of the Grinch has entertained young and old and we cheer every time the “Who’s down in Whoville” show us the real meaning of Christmas. The story reminds us that within each of us there is a little bit of the Grinch and a little bit of a Who; which one will we nurture? How can we make sure our hearts are growing and not shrinking? Find hope and peace through the transformation of the Grinch.

  • The Reel Story of Christmas – Miracle of 34th Street | Sermon from 11/27/2016

    Reel 940x250

    Winner of 4 Academy Awards, Miracle on 34th Street is considered one of the most beloved Christmas movies of all time. While in the movie we find Kris Kringle on trial for being the real Santa Claus, what is really on trial is our faith and hope. Can we open our hearts in this season to once again believe in things we cannot see? Can we place our hope in a God whose love and grace can’t be “proved” in a court of law but can be experienced in our lives and world? Explore the real meaning of Christmas through the classic movie, Miracle on 34th Street.

  • How Will You Measure Your Life? – Who You Serve | Sermon from 11/20/2016


    For the past two weeks we have been talking about how we want our lives to be measured.  It’s important to think about this because how we are living today and the priorities we set today will determine how we will be remembered by others and how we will be measured by God in the [...]

  • How Will You Measure Your Life – What You Give | Sermon from 11/13/2016

    What You Give Final-web

    Too often we measure our lives by counting up what we have earned or making an inventory of what we have bought. We compare ourselves to coworkers to see how our salaries compare or we look at our possessions to see if we are keeping pace with our neighbors. What if we turned the equation around and measured life not by what we earn or spend on ourselves but by what we give to God and others? Jesus was clear that it is more blessed to give than to receive, so this week we will explore how to live today so our lives can be measured by generosity tomorrow.

  • How Will You Measure Your Life? How You Love | Sermon from 11/6/2016


    By what means do you measure the success of your life? The balance of your checking account? Your position at work? Your place in the community? The inventory of your home? When it comes to the end of your life, are these the things you want people talking about? Most of us want our lives celebrated by more important measurements like how we love and what we give and who we serve. Join us as we work to set the right priorities so that a year from now our lives will measure up to the life we want and the life God wants for us. This time our focus is on who and how we love.

  • Epic Stories – The Story of Jonah | Sermon from 10/16/2016


    Have you ever been given a second chance? Did you take it? What about a third or fourth chance? Are you being given one today? While we know the story of Jonah is about a man who finds himself inside the belly of a Big Fish, it is also an epic story of second chances. God gives us second chances and when he does we need to make the most of them. We are all given a second chance and another chance to live for God.
