“Preach the Word…” 2 Timothy 4:2

Our Sermons

Christ Alone

There’s a new swear word in American English and it starts with an E. It’s those big red letters on the advertisement urging us to buy impulsively; it’s the snooty nose of a prideful country club member; it’s the reason for the teen’s tears who finds herself on the outside of the clique.

Burning the Midnight Oil!

If you were to ask someone, “How do you feel about sleep?” what kind of answer do you think you’d get? Depends on who you ask right?

See Things As They Really Are

John asks you to see, through Christ, what you really are, and to look forward to that day when you will see him as he really is. Because if you see his reality, you see things as they really are.

In God We Trust

“Give to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.” In that one, single sentence, as simple as it is profound, Jesus gives us the key to distinguishing church and state, to living as a citizen of two kingdoms.

Our King is Generous

It’s hard to turn down a good party, isn’t it? Our society, our culture loves to have parties. Any excuse to have a party and we’re going to have one.

Our King Is Faithful

The tension that filled the crowd as Jesus spoke was substantial. The church leaders that dotted the landscape weren’t used to being on this end of the rebuke.

Parables of the King: The King is True

In a culture of moral relativity, nothing is more absolute than the desire for what is true. Yet the desire for what is true is not just an American thing, it is also of utmost importance in the Kingdom of God. Sermon on Jesus’ parable of the Two Sons from Matthew 21.

The King is Gracious

They say you should, “strike while the iron is hot,” and “make hay while the sun shines.” So you get up before the crack of dawn.

Parables of the King: The King is Merciful

We are part of the Kingdom of God. And here, in this Kingdom, forgiveness is what we do best. Because, in Christ, anything less just doesn’t make sense.

What Are You Afraid Of?

Here we go again! Might that thought have flitted across your mind? Two weeks in a row now with another “foolish Peter” story.

The Pursuit of Happiness: An Eternal Perspective

What if there were more to life than just being happy? What if Jesus asked you to stop pursuing happiness and to follow him on a different path? Which road would you choose? Message based on Matthew 16:21-26.
