My Inside Track for Worship (Sermon 1/19/2020)
Worship starts with, and is informed by my inner devotion to God. What is in me either helps me or hinders me. What should be the center of my heart if I hope to be able to worship as God intended.

    Who Are We and Why Would I Want to Be Here? (Sermon 1/5/20)
    New Year’s is the time for many to take stock of their lives, assess where they want to go and plan to make changes. This is a time for us as a church to do the same..

New Year, New You… (Sermon 12/29/19)
What are we really celebrating? What will the new year bring? Year’s end is a period of reflection and expectation. It is a time where people reflect on the events over the past year and look forward in expectation to what is to come. If we come to the opinion that our experience over this year is due to human work, good or bad luck, then there is little to be learned or assured of for this coming year. But if our reflection sees God’s hand and learns from His direction, then we can properly move forward in wisdom and hope.

    Joy Unwrapped (Sermon 12/22/19)
    The anticipation is great. The house is ready. The maelstrom of shredded paper has begun. Are we ready for the release of joy into our lives?

    Joy’s Waiting Room (Sermon 12/15/19)
    No one likes waiting – whether its waiting for a plane, waiting for an answer or waiting for hope. How can we best wait for the joy God wants to bring into our lives?

    When Joy Leaves the Room (Sermon 12/8/19)
    The holiday season is hard for many. Life can be overwhelming, especially for those who have suffered loss. God’s real and personal presence is an antidote to the suffering we face, and give a lifeline for our joy.

    Why Choose Joy (Sermon 12/1/19)
    We may have heard it said, “The joy is the Lord is my strength,” but sometimes the truth is that joy is not something we choose, desire or even want.  How can we make an intentional choice of joy to get us through the holiday season? God’s call to us today is to choose joy- regardless of how far we have come, how far we have to go- we can choose joy.

There are many reasons we have to give thanks. People, life; but rarely do we think about giving thanks for grace. In this season of Thanksgiving, can we take time to focus on the grace that God provides for us each day.

    Who is Our Neighbor? (Sermon 11/17/19)
    GUEST SPEAKER:  Dane Fowlkes serves as Senior Regional Director of Church Partnerships for Samaritan’s Purse and directs the national Church Partnerships team. He is currently in his fifth year with Samaritan’s Purse, having served previously for many years as a missions professor and missionary to East Africa and India. He holds the Doctor of Philosophy degree in Missiology from The University of the Free State in South Africa. He is married to Jo Beth Fowlkes. Dane also has written a book titled Ordinary Glory: Finding Grace in the Commonplace”: a book of reflections on the extraordinary potential of an ordinary life. “Ordinary Glory: Finding Grace in the Commonplace” Published author Dane Fowlkes, has led anything but a dull existence—from initiation into an African tribe in northern Kenya where he is known as Jilo, a name that means “a season of celebration,” to living near Gandhi’s ashram on the Sabarmati River in Gujarat, India. Dane served as pastor of several churches before being appointed for missionary service in Kenya. He worked with an unreached tribe in northern Kenya and equipped existing churches around Mount Kenya to establish new ones, later becoming dean of Kenya Baptist Theological College and leading a national program of theological education for pastors. After two terms of service in Kenya, he moved to India, before returning to the United States.

    Grace for Aliens (Sermon 11/10/19)
    NASA continually peaks our interest by raising the possibility of life on other worlds. Articles try to describe what alien life would look like. Have you ever considered that you and I might be aliens? Not in terms of the planet we live on, but in our relationship with God? How about our neighbors? Family? Friends? Does God view us and them as aliens? How can we know for sure?

    The Grace of Healed Relationships (Sermon 11/3/19)
    Relationships are a part of everyone’s life. We say we desperately want them, and then struggle with them. It is an act of true grace to build and maintain any relationship with anyone. Are there relationships in our lives in which we need to renew our commitment to be a person of grace in order for that relationship to flourish?
