  • What Now? – Sermon from 12/28/2014


    now what-web

    All the excitement was three days ago. Today the activity and excitement has settled down, the work is done and all the guests have gone home. All the waiting and anticipation that has been leading up to this event is over and we are left asking, now what? I’m actually not talking about our celebration of Christmas; I’m talking about life for Mary, Joseph and the Shepherds.

  • unFrozen – Love’s Open Door | Sermon from 12/21/2014


    Series Graphic-web

    Mary, Joseph, Shepherds, Angels and even the Wise man all find a place in our nativity scenes, but there are two people who met Jesus as an infant who are never there, Simeon and Anna. These two righteous people met Jesus when his parents brought him to the Temple and when Simeon held Jesus in his arms and Anna testified to who Jesus was, the promises of God were made complete and the door of God’s love stood open for all to enter in. Hear the story of these two people and celebrate the good news that Jesus has come to be the Savior of ALL.

  • unFrozen – Do You Want To Meet a Savior? | Sermon from 12/14/2014


    Series Graphic-web

    While the Shepherds and Magi were anxious to meet the new king born in Bethlehem, not everyone wanted to meet the Savior. King Herod was afraid of losing his power so he rejected a meeting with Jesus and instead tried to have him killed. Do you want to meet a savior? There are times we act more like Herod than the Magi and don’t want to meet Jesus, but life and love are only found in his presence. Ask God to unfreeze your heart so that we can give it to Jesus.

  • unFrozen – Let Us Go | Sermon from 12/7/2014


    Series Graphic-web

    While Let It Go might be a catchy song in a Disney movie, it makes a lousy response to the birth of Jesus. A better response to Jesus’ birth comes from the shepherds of Bethlehem who after hearing from the angels about the birth of this Savior and King said, “Let us go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened.” But it wasn’t just the shepherds who said, let us go, it was also Mary and Joseph when they heard from the angel that they were to be parents to the Messiah, and the Wise men when they saw the star in the sky. All through the Christmas story people go TO God and then go WITH God. Come TO God as we worship our Savior and King and find the strength and spirit here to go with God into the world. Let Us Go…

  • unFrozen – Frozen Hearts | Sermon from 11/30/2014


    Series Graphic-web

    Whether it is unrest in Ferguson or the terror brought on by ISIS, the world is not what we would want it to be. Love, justice and peace are hard to find. There is uncertainty about our economy, growing tensions in the Middle East and Ebola continues to bring devastation and death to our brothers and sisters in Sierra Leone. There seems to be less desire for God but a never ending appetite for entertainment and media and while we have more ways to be connected, we are making less real connections with the people who matter to us the most. The end result of all this is anxiety, fear, disappointment and discouragement. The end result is frozen hearts that struggle to give and receive love and find hope. While things might look dark around us and in us, the world today isn’t that different from the world Jesus entered 2000 years ago.

  • G.I.V.E. – Effectiveness | Sermon from 11/23/2014


    GIVE logo-web

    Most of us don’t like seeing our money going down a black hole, but we are willing (and even excited) to give in ways that are effective. When we give to God and the church, our gifts make a difference. We make a difference in people’s hearts and lives and families, and our giving can make a difference in our community and world. We explore the effectiveness of giving to God and as we bless the gifts of Operation Christmas Child shoe-boxes that will effectively change the heart of a child.

  • G.I.V.E. – Vision | Sermon from 11/16/2014


    GIVE logo-web

    Nehemiah saw a problem so he started to GIVE. A tax collector saw potential for his life so he started to GIVE. The disciple Thomas saw the person of Jesus and so he started to GIVE. Like these three, we get passionate and want to GIVE to those things we can see with our eyes or with our hearts. We explore how Vision is an important part of how we G.I.V.E.

  • G.I.V.E – Inspiration | Sermon from 11/9/2014


    GIVE logo-web

    Last week we learned that giving generously can improve our lives, but what motivates us to give in the first place? Without some sort of Inspiration, most of us wouldn’t be willing to give away our time, money and possessions, so what is it that inspires us and how might we live and give in ways that inspire others. Learn lessons on what it means to G.I.V.E.

  • G.I.V.E – Generosity | Sermon from 11/2/2014


    GIVE logo-web

    We are beginning a four week series on what it means to G.I.V.E. Giving calls for Generosity, Inspiration, Vision and Effectiveness. This week we will see that generosity means giving freely and abundantly and what most people assume is that if we give this way – we lose. We lose our time, money, energy, possessions or whatever it is we are giving away, but the reality is that we don’t lose –we gain! God’s word says, and studies have shown, that people who give generously are happier, healthier and filled with a greater sense of purpose. If these are things you want in life read and listen as we learn to GIVE.
