Christmas Day 2018

One Night In Bethlehem What do you find gives you the deepest joy and contentment in the Christmas season? Is it the carols and traditions? The presents and family? Or perhaps is it the connection that all of humanity has to the biblical story of Christmas. Longing, sacrifice, pain, deliverance, fear, joy, peace – and above all, Hope.

Christmas Eve 2018

Christmas is stressful. Buying gifts, wrapping presents, grocery shopping, traveling… it is all so exhausting. You may spend so much time and effort preparing for the holidays that you don’t have much time and effort left to enjoy it. But what if that all changed? What if this holiday brought you a sense of joy, hope, and acceptance? What if there was more to Christmas than the hustle and bustle we find ourselves immersed in every year? The good news:…
joy, hope, more

What if There was More

It’s easy to lose the meaning of Christmas amidst the holiday images that permeate our culture. What if there was more to Christmas than this? What if the true meaning of Christmas could leave you in awe of your Savior… the one whose mother was a virgin, who was born in a stable, and who is fully God yet fully man? Isaiah foretold His coming, and you can rest assured that Jesus’ birth, death, and resurrection means that your victory starts now. Sermon Text: Isaiah 42:1-8
joy, hope, more

What If There Was Hope?

Sometimes, when you watch the news, you probably think that the world is a pretty dark place. What if there was a light in the darkness? Jesus is that light. Isaiah explains that Jesus brings comfort and hope to the world, paying for all sins and bringing the good news of salvation to all people. Sermon Text: Isaiah 40:1-11
joy, hope, more

What if Joy

What if God removed despair, mourning, and sadness from us? What if, in its place, we had never-ending joy? Isaiah explains that God sent Jesus to earth to do just this. We can find joy, even in times of sadness, because of the promise of eternity we have through Jesus’ defeat of sin. Isaiah 61:1-3
mission, sacrifice invite, absurd, generosity, compassion

Generosity in Mission

Our building is an important aspect of our church; we use our facilities to worship and grow in faith with one another. But, our mission doesn’t stop at the end of our driveway. God calls us to take care of the lost – those who do not know Him. Because of God’s generosity to us, we can’t help ourselves but to show generosity to others in our local and global community. Luke 19:10
