New Year Revolution: Community

Rugged individualism—it’s the ideal that this country was built on. Along with the two year old we proclaim: “I can do it myself!” I don’t need anybody. But the gospel is all about God coming alongside us and fulfilling our need. We need each other. We were created to live together in community, with strengths that bless another’s weakness. The gospel compels us and empowers us to live in community.
Sermon Text: Hebrews 10:19-24

Hope (Epiphany)

This world is dark. There seems to be no end to sickness, sadness and struggle. There is so much prejudice and spiteful pride. The darkness is oppressive. Into this darkness God speaks a message of hope, a message of rescue, forgiveness, a second chance, new life. This hope is food for our weary souls. Sermon Text: Matthew 2:1-12

What the World Needs: Good News

Christmas is a time when people think about and long for peace—in their own lives, in the world around us. Yet, no matter how many Christmases go by, peace continues to elude us. At least, when we’re looking for a worldly kind of peace. Christmas is truly good news, because it’s a message of true peace, peace with God and peace within ourselves. Isaiah 52:7-10

Deliverance

A wake-up call and the honest truth about ourselves—yes, we NEED these things; but, man, the truth is more than a little oppressive. What we need now is a little hope, a little help. Maybe more than a little help. We need deliverance. We need a savior! Isaiah 61:1-3, 10, 11

Truth (The Wake-Up Call)

The story of God’s people is like a broken record. All throughout the ages, again and again we forget who we are. We get distracted. Life and sin is a raging river that sweeps us up and carries us along. We need God to rend the heavens like he’s done so many times before, to come down, shake us up and wake us up (before it’s too late!) We need some tough love. Isaiah 63:16b,17; 64:1-8

Thanksgiving Eve – Generosity finds joy

God provides so richly and generously not because he has so much to give (which he does!), but because he loves us so very much. Generosity finds joy in meeting a need. Our world is so full of need. Each need is an opportunity to show our gratitude by loving “the least of these” as…

Generous God

Generosity starts with trust. If we trust that we’ll always have what we need, that there’s no need for worry or anxiety, that it’s not necessary to hold so tightly to the things we have, we will experience the incredible and liberating freedom called generosity. God promises to care for all our needs. Do we believe his promise?
