     | 2,060 views

    A sermon about the prophetess Huldah.

    In order to understand the story of Huldah, we have to understand the story of Israel at this point in their history. You see, we are now long past the “golden days” of King David’s reign and King Solomon after him. The twelve tribes have been divided into two different kingdoms; ten of the tribes ...read more

    As disciples of Christ, we have an obligation to

    Let’s talk about this woman, Esther. And I actually want to start today, at the end of her story. Were any of you able to read through Esther this week? If so, then you know that the ending of the book seems a bit strange. Here’s how it goes, “Certainly, Mordecai the Jew was ...read more

    The story of Deborah remind us that the key to winning the victory over struggles in our lives is to listen to God and heed what God says.

    We come this morning to one example of what I consider to be the most difficult part of the Bible to understand. So I’m just going to name it for what it is, right up front. This scene of Deborah calling members of the Israelite tribes into battle is just one story among many of the seemingly ...read more

    A sermon about Eve: the first woman, the Fall, and the life-giving gift of God's grace.

    For the first chapter and a half of the Bible. We see God busy at work; creating the place we call Earth and all that is a part of it. And at every step of the way, God declares his creation “good.” Then it all changes. Halfway through chapter 2, God is busy helping the human, ...read more

     | 2,111 views

    Sarai/Sarah faced a lot of hardships in her life with Abram/Abraham. Sometimes he dealt with things in her own way and suffered the consequences. But in the end, her faith in God brought her the one thing she desired the most, a son.

    Four thousand years ago, barrenness was the ultimate disgrace; it was seen as a sign of divine disfavor. If you don’t have children, it’s because God’s got something against you. Period. A woman who couldn’t conceive suffered not only lack of approval, but also the threat of ...read more

    When we are faithful to God, God will be faithful to us, and amazing things will happen!

    Many of us are quite familiar with the story of Job. In the Bible, Job is the guy God chooses to prove to Satan the faithfulness of God’s followers. The result is that God repeatedly “tests” Job, making his life extremely difficult, in order to show Satan how he remains faithful ...read more

  • When Seeing Is Changing

     | 3,424 views

    An encounter with Christ means a fundamental transformation of everything we have been.

    Zacchaeus was one hated man, and I mean HATED; with a capital H and A-T-E-D too! I’m not really sure any of us could understand what it feels like to be so despised by so many. I suppose it’s possible that Zacchaeus had some friends among the Roman elite, but it’s really hard to ...read more

    A sermon for All Saints' Sunday

    I know many of us are sitting here this morning thinking of people we love who aren’t with us today. Maybe our parents, or a sibling, or our spouse, or even a child, died a long time ago, or maybe it was just a few days ago. But however or whenever we experienced that loss, there is still at ...read more

  • The Sunday After Tuesday

    Contributed by Clair Sauer on Nov 18, 2016
     | 1,120 views

    Following the presidential election, we must check our allegiances, cast aside our idols, and seek to follow Christ and the ways of God's kingdom.

    Once we picked our collective chins up off the floor on Wednesday morning this week, I think we saw the fruit of something that has been growing in our country for at least 15-20 years. But maybe it’s been longer than that and I’m speaking only from my personal experience. You all will ...read more

  • At Least I'm Not Like...

    Contributed by Clair Sauer on Oct 30, 2016
     | 3,800 views

    We have a human tendency towards self-righteousness and judgment of others. Christ teaches that justification comes in acknowledging our brokenness, which also means recognizing Christ in others.

    A couple of months ago, Owen went through this brief period of time where he would say “hi” to everyone we would encounter. He still does it some, but not quite as regularly. Anyway, while Owen was in the midst of this phase, we were in Northern Kentucky for my father-in-law’s ...read more

     | 3,611 views

    Christ is looking for faithfulness on earth. Our faithfulness is shown when we pray continuously and when we persist in seeking God's justice in the world.

  • Growing In Grace Series

    We are never beyond God's grace, but if we want to experience the full benefits of that grace, then we have to work on growing in God's grace.

    We pick back up this morning with our HOPE Point sermon series, looking at those four statements that define the kind of church we will be: Rooted in Christ. Grounded in Hope. Growing in Grace. Giving in Love. Today, our focus will be “growing in grace,” and we will think about what ...read more

    Just as Christ generously gave of himself for us, so are we called to be generous of ourselves and our resources for the sake of others.

    This morning, we are going to talk about what it means to “give in love.” This is the last sermon in a series which has focused on the four missional components that will define who and what this church is as we seek to reach out in our community: Rooted in Christ. Grounded in Hope. ...read more

    We cannot call ourselves Christ-followers if we do not notice, acknowledge, and serve the needy in our midst.

    “We have all seen him. He lies on a pile of newspapers outside a shop doorway, covered with a rough blanket. Perhaps he has a dog with him for safety. People walk past him or even step over him. He occasionally rattles a few coins in a tin or cup, asking for more. He wasn’t there when ...read more

  • Practicing Communion

    Contributed by Clair Sauer on Oct 25, 2016
     | 2,576 views

    Communion is not just something we do as part of our worship, it is how we should live our lives.

    If these words sound familiar to you, they should. The liturgy we use each time we share in communion is drawn directly from the words Paul writes here; the earliest record we have of the regular practice of communion in the Christian church. But what I want us to consider today is the way that ...read more
