As our country grieves the terror witnessed in our Capitol, the church reacts with faith and hope because we have “a kingdom that cannot be shaken.” Join us Sunday as we talk about the Kingdom of God and what that means for disciples in 2021.
Scripture: Hebrews 12:25-29
Open House – The Cross of Christ did more than reconcile sinners to God. It reconciled us to each other. Jesus Christ, who is our peace, broke down the barriers between races by creating a whole new family.
Scripture: Ephesians 2:11-22
Do we see the world as God sees it? The divisions around us block our vision of a united body in Christ. Paul prays for us to have “the eyes of our hearts enlightened” to our hope, our inheritance, and God’s power in Christ. To see the unity we can have in Christ, we first need to know God better.
Scripture: Ephesians 1:15-23
Join us this week as Marty presents the story of the Ten Lepers and discusses Jesus’ question to the lone man who returned: “Where are the nine?”
The Parable of the Talents teaches us that God thinks so highly of us that He trusts us with gifts of immense value. Do we trust Him and think good thoughts of Him? Or are we fearful because we think poorly of God?
We need to be ready for our Lord’s return. But we also need to be ready to wait. In this sermon, we hear the Parable of the Wise and Foolish Virgins so we can learn how to wait and, just as important, how to hope.
When we focus on external behavior, the way we see God and the way we live become shallow. Jesus challenges all of us to go deeper and examine our hearts and trust Him enough to change us.
The problems of our world overwhelm us. As we look for solutions, Jesus gives us a revolutionary yet fundamental idea. The Lord of Lords teaches us the love of loves: Love God and Love People.
How do Christians relate to the government? Jesus famously answered, “Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.” But what does this mean? The answer is more surprising, and subversive, than we think. Jesus will not give us the easy answers we want.
