    JonahPlain-web

    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.

  • Epic Stories – The Story of Noah | Sermon from 10/9/2016


    NoahPlain-web

    The Story of Noah. Build an ark. Gather the animals. Face the rain and your neighbors. Sail in the storm. Be cooped up on the ark for 40 days and nights. Settle in an empty land. Noah is an epic story of overcoming obstacles. Each one of us faces obstacles today that seem insurmountable, but we can overcome them with faith in the power and the word of God and when we overcome them, our lives become an epic story as well.

    FullScreen944x250

    The Bible is full of epic love stories and the story of Ruth is one of them. Through Ruth’s love and commitment comes a family and through that family came King David and in time – Jesus. Family isn’t all the work of biology, sometimes it is the work of God’s grace and mercy. We will explore how each one of us can be part of an epic family by living and telling the story of God’s grace.

  • Epic Stories – The Story of Joseph | Sermon from 9/25/2016


    Joseph Plain-web

    The Story of Joseph
    The Story of Joseph has been made into movies and musicals but beyond the coats and dreams which often become our focus we see that the story of Joseph is an epic story of forgiveness. What moves a man to forgive his brothers for selling him into slavery and wanting to kill him? How does that kind of faith develop and how can it develop in us? Join us as we consider how this epic story of forgiveness can be part of our own lives.

  • Epic Stories – The Story of Creation | Sermon from 9/18/2016


    HEN FINISHED REGULAR-web

    We all love a good story and the Bible is full of them, some we might even call epic. Epic stories are those powerful stories that not only capture our hearts, minds and imaginations but also tell the story of God. This fall we will look at five epic Old Testament stories that reflect the story of God. Each story also shows us that God’s story is written in our lives and we need to find ways to tell it to the world. Join us as we experience how it all started in God’s epic story of love revealed through the Story of Creation.

  • Lessons to Remember – Sermon from 9/11/2016


    9-11CrossPlain-web

    15 years ago, our nation was attacked at the World Trade Centers, the Pentagon and over the skies of Pennsylvania. Most of us can remember where we were when we heard about these events and the videos and images from that day bring back many thoughts and feelings. As our pain heals and memorials are visited at all three locations, we also can’t forget the lessons learned from that day and the days that followed. Join us as we look back at the lessons learned from September 11 and how we can keep those lessons shaping our faith, our lives and the life of our families and community.

  • Work – Labor Day Sunday | Sermon from 9/4/2016


    Work Graphic copy-web

    Labor Day is an interesting holiday. We don’t sing Labor Day songs. We don’t send Labor Day cards. We don’t order Labor Day cakes and when was the last time someone wished you a Happy Labor Day (or is that a Merry Labor Day)? While it is a day for us to honor work, we do that by giving many people the day off. It all seems kind of strange… as does our understanding of work in general. Look at what God has to say about work and how we can transform our attitude about work even if we can’t transform the places where we do work.

    Clipping940x250FINISHED copy

    The first day of school, the first day of college, the first day on a new job, the first day of retirement… life is full of first days and with them comes uncertainty and anxiety. Through all our “first days”, God is there and by looking at the “first days” during Jesus life we see that God is there with a plan and with power. Read and listen to get ready for your “first day.

  • The Games – The Thrill of Victory & The Agony of Defeat | Sermon from 8/21/2016

    During the Olympic Games, we have seen the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat. In our life, and in our own race of faith, we also experience moments of defeat. Whether it is in our jobs, families or finances – failure is there and we can either allow these moments to define us or we can use them as fuel for a victory. Because of our Savior, Jesus Christ, we can experience the thrill of victory if we will not give in to the agony of defeat. Celebrate this victory and press on in the race of faith.

    Laurel Wreath hand held by a bronze statue

    What is it that has allowed Michael Phelps to swim in his fifth Olympics and win his 23rd gold medal and Yusra Mardini to swim in her first Olympics coming in 45th overall? Perseverance. Every athlete has to endure illness, injury, depression, disappointments and setbacks. Every athlete has to learn to persevere through the difficult days in order to compete in the games. Perseverance is needed in every race, including our race of faith. Learn what can help us endure and even breakthrough the problems and pain of life so that we can achieve our goal and win the prize of Christ.
