Sermon: Baptism is Our Reminder

Today we heard the story of Jesus’ baptism. Why is baptism so important? We take the time to explore the importance of this sacrament and how it is “tied” to Jesus. I had the most moving encounter that brought this truth home to me this past week.

Sermon: Two Kids in the Bible

We are still in the season of Christmas and we hear two stories about children in the Bible. These stories and stories like them point to a larger reality. Also the descriptions of Samuel and Jesus help us move forward in 2019.

Sermon: Christmas 2018: The Hopes and Fears of All the Years

Sermon: Judging Others: Are You Sure You Want to Go There?

Today’s message is a companion to last week’s message regarding loving your enemy. We are hard wired to judge others. Maybe we need a software update. Jesus gives us a reason to pause and evaluate. This is not about salvation but an important lesson in living out our faith.
