Current Sermon Series: “When Mercy Triumphs”

At the core of the Easter message is the idea of mercy- God showing mercy to us in Jesus. We like the idea of mercy for ourselves, but have a difficult time showing mercy to others. In the light of Easter, who are the people around us to whom God would have us be messengers, and deliverers of mercy?

Being a Messenger of Mercy (Sermon 5/21/17)

As we survey our world, we are drawn to the conclusion that many times it is not a very friendly place. As God sends you out into the world, who are the people that God would have you intentionally show mercy?

    Is My Home a Place of Mercy? (Sermon 5/14/17)

    Home should be a safe place; but for many, it is a place to escape from, not escape to. Whatever your background may have been, you can make your home a place of mercy.

    Am I An Ogre Or An Angel? (Sermon (4/30/17)

    How do people perceive me? Am I someone that people run to in order to receive mercy, or from whom they run? When I think or talk about mercy, am I always waiting for someone else to step in?

    A Church Built on Failures (Sermon 4/23/17)

    We all hope we will never be caught or punished when we fail. When we think we have “gotten away” with something, do we celebrate, or look to change?

The Real Opening Day (Easter Sermon 4/16/17)

One sure sign of the beginning of spring is the opening day of baseball. It's a fresh start for all regardless of how they finished last year. Resurrection Sunday gives us the same opportunity, with far more reaching results to be excited. Are you ready for a fresh start?

    Missing Hope (Sermon 4/9/17)
    Saturday, April 8 was set aside in New York by The Center for Hope as “Missing Persons Day” when people can gather and support each other for people who have gone missing in their lives. Many today may not be missing a person, but are missing hope in their lives. What encouragement can we have from the events of Palm Sunday that let us know that hope is there for us?

    What Does God Want Me To See? (Sermon 3/26/17)
    Candles, flashlights, light bulbs are all useful for helping me see things that may be hidden. All are useless unless they each have the appropriate power source to make them work. The Bible is a great book, the best book. Am I missing something to make it come alive? What do I need in order for it to give me the help I need?

    Can a Book Change Me? (Sermon 3/19/17)
    Website, “Listopedia,” lists the top books people voted that have changed their lives. The number one book was, To Kill a Mockingbird, and number eighty-three was, A Wrinkle in Time. Not listed was the Bible. How can this international best seller not make this list if it is so impactful in one’s life? Would we list it is in our “top ten list?” If not, should we?

    Can I Trust What’s Written In This Book? (Sermon 3/12/17)
    Everyone has a final authority, a bottom line on which to run their lives. As followers of Jesus, we are told that our final authority is a collection of books called the Bible. However, what makes this book different from others, and why can you trust what is written in it?

 Sermon Series:  “What Does Greatness Look Like?” 

Over this past year we have heard the theme, “Make America Great Again.” Many have
their ideas of what greatness is. Do we have a firm grasp on how the Bible views greatness in our homes, nation and lives? How does our view of greatness line up with God’s idea?

Building a Great Life (Sermon 2/26/17)
“When the going gets tough, where do I go?” So many want a great life, but are unwilling, unable to go the right places to get the help they need. Have I settled for less in my life because of my actions or attitudes? What will I do to better move towards the life that God would want me to have?

    Many times God’s view of things is different from our own. God’s view of a nation stands in stark contrast to what we are told. What one thing can you do to help our nation be considered “great” in God’s eyes?
