  • The "Go-To" Gal Series

    Contributed by Clair Sauer on Aug 1, 2017
    based on 1 rating
     | 2,852 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

  • When Seeing Is Changing

     | 3,998 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

  • Among The Great Company

    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

     | 1,337 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

  • Giving In Love Series

     | 3,685 views

    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

  • Pay Attention!

    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 20, 2016
     | 3,293 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

  • Got Persistence?

    Contributed by Clair Sauer on Oct 20, 2016
     | 4,198 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.

    A few weeks ago, Pam Brooks loaned me her copy of the book Accused. As Pam promised, it was an absorbing book, and despite a full time job and a toddler, I finished it up earlier this week. The book is the autobiography of Tonya Craft, and specifically the events of her life in the years around her ...read more

  • At Least I'm Not Like...

    Contributed by Clair Sauer on Oct 20, 2016
     | 4,248 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

  • Grounded In Hope Series

     | 8,007 views

    People all around are drowning in a sense of hopelessness. Christ offers the greatest hope we will ever need; our task is to share that message of hope in the communities around us.

    I have this little feature on my cell phone where I get pop-up notifications of breaking news from a couple of different news outlets. Most of the time, these pop-ups make me cringe; probably because a lot of them have to do with campaign politics. But the thing is, when it’s not about ...read more

  • Growing In Grace Series

     | 5,120 views

    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

    Part of our life of discipleship is expressing gratitude to God in every occasion, even (and especially) when gratitude feels difficult and God seems distant.

    The most important thing is rooting our lives in Christ. If we can do this, we can experience the fullness of Christ love, and we have the foundation we need to weather all of life's storms.

  • Working For A Loss

    Contributed by Clair Sauer on Jul 28, 2016
     | 1,663 views

    Being a disciple of Christ means setting aside all personal ambitions and serving God's kingdom selflessly.

    Each of us is claimed by God in our baptism, and we are called to serve God’s kingdom in a special way. This is what Martin Luther referred to as the “priesthood of all believers,” which means that though all of us might not make ministry our profession, each of us has a ministry ...read more

    For the first time since Ken and I got married, we are now (and have been for the last year) living in a house that we own. Actually, this is the first time I’ve ever lived in a house that I owned. As many of you probably know, the thing about living in a house that you own is that you tend ...read more
