Our House

When you ask someone what they think about the church, be prepared for any response. What they say may inspire feelings of anger, sadness, joy, or hope, depending on what they have experienced in their dealings with believers. This four-week series for adults explores four congregational values that should define our relationships with those inside and outside the church. When we fulfill our biblical call to the four c’s—commission, community, commandment, collaboration—we can be the church that glorifies Jesus.

Lent Sermon Series Graphic

Lent: Lament, Repent, Anticipate

This series explores the season of Lent, beginning with Ash Wednesday and continuing through six Sundays. Through analyzing the biblical practices of lament, repentance, and anticipation, we can experience sorrow for sin and receive God’s sanctifying grace, both personally and corporately.

Living Hope: An Easter Message

This stand-alone message for Easter Sunday focuses on the hymn of Christ’s supremacy over all creation found in Colossians 1. Relying in part on the work of N. T. Wright, it shows the resurrection as God’s work of new creation and kingdom come. A bodily resurrection helps us avoid turning the resurrection into merely an insightful myth or an event with relevance only to life someday in heaven. The resurrection changes everything. It invites us into God’s ongoing work of new creation—here and now, and in the life to come.
