10/10/21 - 20th Sun. after Pentecost

The world teaches us that marriage is "just a piece of paper," and if the people in our families are not a blessing to us, we can just walk away from them and let them go. But Jesus teaches us something entirely different. Jesus is the One who joined man and woman in marriage, and joins us in families, and joins us to Himself in His grace. Pastor's sermon, "What God Has Joined Together, Let Man Not Separate," is based on Mark 10:2-16.

10/3/21 - 19th Sun. after Pentecost

Instead of pridefully seeing ourselves as disciples of Jesus, the Savior teaches us that following Him is an opportunity to radically humble ourselves for the sake of our brothers and sisters in Christ. Pastor's sermon, "Jesus Turns Discipleship Upside Down," is based on Mark 9:38-50.

9/26/21 - 18th Sun. after Pentecost

Our highest ambition is to follow Christ, imitating His love. The greatest must serve the least. And those who proclaim the Word of the Lord entrust themselves and their message into the Lord's hand. Pastor's sermon, "Things to Know About the Enemies of God's Word" is based on Jeremiah 11:18-20.

9/19/21 - 17th Sun. after Pentecost

Faith is not just a matter of the head, but of the heart. Too often we silo our faith into just one tiny corner of our lives, instead of letting our faith in Christ rule over our entire lives. How can we believe in a Savior who selflessly loves and dies for all people equally, while we continue to show the self-promoting kind of favoritism that shuns those in need? Pastor's sermon, "God's Love Is a Love Without Prejudice," is based on James 2:1-5,8-10,14-18.

9/12/21 - 16th Sun. after Pentecost

Given the misery and need that we encounter in this world, one might wonder whether God even cares about us. Yet through His Word, we receive ears to hear and eyes to see the love that God has lavished on us through His Son Jesus Christ. So, we strive to bring them to the Savior to open their eyes and ears. Pastor's sermon, "Bring Them to the Living Word of God" is based on Mark 7:31-37.

9/5/21 - 15th Sun. after Pentecost

Real obedience to God begins in the heart. Evil and wickedness don’t start from outside of us, they begin in our own heart. Instead of adding a bunch of man-made rules to God’s Word in order to avoid sinning, we put on the armor of God who delivers us from evil through His death and resurrection. Pastor's sermon, "How to Guard the Wicked Heart," is based on Mark 7:1-8,14-15,21-23.

8/29/21 - 14th Sun. after Pentecost

Serving the Lord is a choice that believers in Christ make every day. May we be willing to let go of our idols and serve the Lord--for He is OUR God. Pastor's sermon, "As For Me and My House, We Will Serve the Lord," is based on Joshua 24:1-2a,14-18.
