Ash Wednesday 2021

Ash Wednesday marks the start of Lent, a time to prepare our hearts and minds for Easter. Preparing for Christmas is easier than preparing for Easter. Not only do we get lots of help from society to celebrate Christmas, it’s just easier to buy something than to fast from something. It is easier to talk about the birth of a baby than the death of our Savior. But we need Lent. We need to take the time to face our…

Love Over Hate

Disagreement and hate are everywhere. There isn’t anything wrong with disagreements… until we cancel someone because they don’t share our views. Then, the situation becomes hateful. The hate in the world gives Christians a chance to let our light shine by loving the unlovable – like God loves us. God’s love for you renews you so you can be catalyst for renewal for others by sharing God’s love and your love with them. Sermon Text: Matthew 5:43-48

Jesus Welcomes Sinners

Jesus preached a message of repentance and grace to everyone. He was known for welcoming all people to him. We are all prone to wandering from Jesus. We all need his grace and mercy. Jesus teaches us that none of us can be in good standing with God on our won. We are only saved through him. And this is why we partner in mission to reach the lost: because Jesus welcomes sinners… all of us. Sermon Text: Luke 15

Prayer Over Other “Priorities”

We sometimes think of prayer as a waste of time. So we don’t make time to pray. When we offer to pray, we sometimes feel like we are taking the easy way out as opposed to enlisting the powerful God to intervene in life. We think prayer makes us weak, but prayer allows us to tap into our power source. Renewal comes with quality time spent with God in prayer. Sermon Text: James 5:16

Rest Over Exhaustion

We often avoid rest, choosing exhaustion instead. We spend so much time trying to be perfect at whatever we do. We don’t want to let people down. We want to feel loved and needed. And so, we go above and beyond to prove ourselves to others and to God. The result is we are exhausted. We are tired. We are worn out. We need rest so that we can see and do the important things instead of the urgent things.…

Forgiveness Over Revenge

Forgiveness is easier said than done. We want to use forgiveness as a weapon. The problem is that withholding forgiveness doesn’t hurt the other person so much as it cuts into our souls. It makes us feel superior and in control, but the lack of forgiveness actually crushes us. Forgiving someone doesn’t mean we’ll feel instant joy or relief. But it does mean we’re taking the right steps to walk toward healing and renewal. Sermon Text: Matthew 18:21-35

Faith Over Feelings

Our feelings are so untrustworthy because they are always changing. And our feelings are affected by sin. But we don’t have to be tossed back and forth by our feelings. We’re called, not to live by our feelings, but to live by faith. Our faith is rock solid if we have placed it in God—the unchanging, perfect, eternal, sovereign One. This faith is founded on the infallible, certain, life-changing, authoritative Word of God. Bring renewal to your life by relying…

Worship Over Worry

We constantly find disappointment in the things of this world, and so we worry. We worry that things are not going to go the way we want We worry that we want be able to handle it. We worry that we don’t add up. When we worship instead of worry, we take our eyes and minds of ourselves and look to God, who is our creator, redeemer, and provider. He renews us through the good news of Jesus in Word…

Christmas… And Then This Mess?

We celebrate the birth of our Savior Jesus at Christmas. But then… the mess is still there. In the Bible, we hear of the terrible tragedy of the deaths of the children of Bethlehem at Herod’s hand. And we see mess around us. But still, Jesus is near. Jesus is our example, so we can confront our sinful nature and recognize our need for him as our Savior. Sermon Text: Matthew 2:1-18

Christmas Eve: The Light Has Come

It’s Christmas Eve. The hope of the world has come. Jesus’ birth meant that God’s promises were fulfilled. The light came to earth to get rid of darkness. Jesus, the light of the world, is our sure and certain hope. We don’t have to live in the darkness of our current circumstances; we can live in the light of Christ. Sermon Text: Isaiah 9:2-3, 6-7 & John 8:12

Preparing for the Light

What does preparing for Jesus look like? As the holidays grow close, we make preparations for meals, decorations, and gatherings. We also need to prepare our hearts. The light is coming, and as we get ready to celebrate the birth of Jesus, we need to examine our hearts and recognize our deep need for a Savior. Sermon Text: Isaiah 40:1-11

The Assurance of Light

Many of us are aware of God’s promises for us, but we grow weary easily. We need assurance along the way to remind of that God is for us and loves us unconditionally. Throughout the Scriptures, God provides assurance with many prophecies of the coming light. Sermon Text: Isaiah 7:10-14
