Joy in Teamwork

Humans are meant to be together, uniting in teamwork. God did not create us to be alone. When we work together in our families, with our coworkers, or on a sports team, we can find joy in teamwork. This joy is multiplied when we join as brothers and sisters in Christ, joining Jesus on his mission and sharing His good news. Sermon Text: Philippians 1:3-6

God Blesses Us

Because they could not see how God blesses them, the Israelites wandered in the desert for 40 years. Over and over again, they grumbled and rebelled against God. Yet, God was still with them and loved them. We see God’s steadfast love in the story of Balaam. Balaam was a sorcerer, who was hired to curse the Israelites. But he came to see that he could not curse those whom God has blessed. Maybe some people wonder of God is…

God Saves Us

God saved His people from slavery in Egypt. After traveling through the desert, the Israelites were finally close to the Promised Land. But then God changed their direction. The people started to grumble and God allowed them to be bitten by snakes. In his grace, he provided healing through the bronze snake. When the consequences of our sin leave us in pain, Jesus says that we can look to him who was lifted up on the cross. He will save…

The Crisis of Race and Racism

This week, we’ll take a bit of a departure from the sermon series to examine a global crisis. It was present long before COVID-19, and some people don’t even see it as a crisis. The crisis is racism. Throughout history, groups of people have been isolated, minimized, and shunned because of their skin color or origins. In this message, we’ll look at what God has to say about how we should treat all people in the human race. Sermon Text:…

God Provides for Us

There is so much uncertainty in our world right now that makes it difficult to see how God provides for ourselves. We might wonder what will happen with our jobs, our schools, or our businesses. But even in the middle of all these restrictions, God will provide our daily bread. The same God who gave the Israelites daily manna will provide for our daily needs. Sermon Text: Exodus 16

Who Told You … Christians Are Too Judgmental about Sex?

God’s design of sex and marriage might seem oppressive at first, because personal freedom and tolerance are two of the highest values of contemporary culture. And yet, God’s restrictions of sex in a marriage has the goal of human flourishing. Like a train “restricted” to its tracks thrives, so also God restricts sex to marriage so that humans might thrive. The goal of God’s design is faithfulness and commitment between husband and wife and a healthy home for children. In…

Who Told You… God isn’t Loving Because There’s Suffering?

The reality of suffering is one of the most challenging objections to the God of the Bible. But Scripture does not shy away from the subject. Much of Scripture validates pain and guilt. And yet, the Scriptures don’t give an airtight answer to all our suffering. Instead, God tells us a story of a good world that went bad because of human’s free decision. But it also tells us about a God who steps into this world of pain and…

Who Told You… Women Shouldn’t Have Equal Rights?

The New Testament was written at a time and place where there was incredible inequality between men and women. And yet, Jesus and his followers went back to the first page of the Bible when God says that he created both genders in his image. The early Christians, like Paul, did what they could to elevate the status of women. For example, we see at the end of Romans how Paul lists many women who showed great leadership and faith…

Who Told You People are Basically Good?

We would like to believe that people are basically good. But if that were true, then why do we lock our cars? Why do we put virus protection on our computers? Why do we put security cameras on our house? We know that it is not just “bad people out there” who are the problem. What about the battle against evil that rages in our own hearts? We know deep down that we ourselves are not “basically good”. That’s why…

Who Told You All Religions are Basically the Same?

Most religions seem superficially similar. All religions have a form of prayer, types of worship, and a way of life. And yet, if you scratch below the surface, you will find that Christianity is fundamentally different from all other religions. Most religions give their followers a type of ladder, a system of rules to live by to “climb up to God”. But Christianity presents a story about God working through his people in order that He might come down to…

Who Told You… Science Disproves God?

Science is about discovering how and why things work. Biology can teach you why blood clots, Chemistry explains why certain ingredients make a cake rise, and so on. These principles are not contrary to what Jesus commands us to do when he tells us to practice science and observe the natural world. The problem is that some people believe science disproves a need for a Creator. However, just because we might know scientifically how something works doesn’t disprove the Creator…

Hope Lives (Easter 2020)

Sometimes, it’s hard to believe that we need a Savior. Other times, we can’t imagine why Jesus would love us enough to die for us. People tell us Jesus was just a man, punished wrongfully, who died almost 2,000 years ago. But he’s much more than that. On the day we now celebrate as Good Friday, Jesus rescued us from our sin. And three days later, on Easter, He rose from the dead. Because of his resurrection, Hope lives forever…
