Rev. Tracey continues our summer series this week, focusing on Matthew 9: 18-26, in which we look at the role of suffering in driving us toward Jesus in humility, irrespective of our social status.
Rev. Alex continues our exploration of the Gospel of Matthew, this week focusing on Chapter 9, vs. 14-17. When people encounter Jesus, they either resist and have a run-in or repent and have a rendezvous. Matthew’s purpose in relaying this encounter is to point out that there is no middle ground between these options. If […]
Rev. Alex continues our new series, this week exploring Matthew 9: 9-13. An encounter with Jesus will never be an ordinary meeting, but rather a life-changing event. Jesus comes to call and heal the sinners, not the self-righteous. An ominous warning for future encounters with the self-important.
Rev. Alex focuses on Matthew 8: 5-13 this week. Even the powerful can humble themselves in the sight of the Lord.
Rev. Jamey starts off our new series Encounters: Run-Ins and Rendezvous with Jesus which will focus on passages from the Gospel of Matthew. This week he explores Matthew 2: 1-12 and explains how an encounter with Jesus always leads to denial or worship.

Rev. Connie continues our Building Blocks Series this week with a focus on 1 Corinthians 12: 27–13:3, which is closely related to last week’s sermon about gift envy.

Rev. Alex focuses on 1 Corinthians 12: 1-11 this week. If you are in Christ, you have some spiritual gifts and it will show. God chooses how his gifts are distributed and what they look like. Although they are different, they are all for the one purpose of building up his church. What are your […]
