     | 2,055 views

    There is much that stinks in this world, but Jesus' birth in a smelly manger reminds us that Jesus can be born in us. A brief sermon for Christmas Eve.

    Christmas stinks! Or, so would say the Grinch who stole Christmas. You remember the Grinch? The slinky, green ogre of a character created by Dr. Seuss whose heart was too small to love and appreciate Christmas. We know the story. All the Who’s down in Whoville make the Grinch cringe with all their ...read more

     | 3,617 views

    A look at the shepherds around the manger.

    History and pop culture have given a cast of characters to surround us at Christmas. The characters evoke smiles, joy, reverence, excitement, anticipation and happy memories. Some, like Santa Claus have sacred beginnings, but most are purely secular in nature. That’s okay, for they still bring joy ...read more

    A look at the angels around the manger.

    Let’s talk about angels. The prominence of angels in the Christmas story is obvious, from the Christmas card we send, to the decorations on our trees, to the adornment of our yards, we’re surrounded by angels. We even have an angel hanging in our front yard here at FUMC in the Nativity scene. ...read more

    A look at Joseph's place at the manger.

    There is no greater Christmas classic than Frank Capra’s It’s a Wonderful Life, and there is no greater Christmas character than poor George Bailey.

    A look at Mary's place at the manger.

    Have you heard words like this before? There is no way. This won't work. It's impossible. I can't do it. I can't handle it. I can't keep going. I'm not gonna’ make it. Those words sound familiar to anybody? They are the words of defeat and pessimism and yet they are words that all of us do battle ...read more

  • Generous With Our Gifts Series

    Contributed by Lynn Malone on Jul 29, 2017
     | 1,875 views

    Generosity is at the core of a disciple's life. Jesus calls us to generous living, and generosity begins with our money.

    Do we believe it’s possible to live a generous life? Do we believe it’s important to live a generous life? Do we believe it’s necessary to live a generous life? We’ve spent the last four weeks reflecting on how to live generously in every respect of discipleship as United Methodists—our prayers, ...read more

  • Generous With Our Service Series

     | 1,476 views

    Stewardship is about much more than money. This sermon deals with how we can be generous with our service.

    Membership has meaning. Every organization has expectations for those who join its ranks, and let’s face it, the church is no different. Jack Jones wrote: “Putting a hog in the living room will not change the hog’s nature, but it will damage the living room. A lost man’s nature will not be ...read more

  • Generous With Our Prayers Series

     | 1,856 views

    Discipleship and Stewardship are so closely related as to be indistinguishable. We are called to be as generous with our prayers as with our money or service.

    A young man went into a drugstore to buy 3 boxes of chocolate: small, medium, and large. When the pharmacist asked him about the three boxes, he said, “Well, I am going over to my new girlfriend's house tonight for supper. Then, we are going out for the evening. If she only lets me hold her hand, ...read more

  • Generous With Our Presence Series

    Contributed by Lynn Malone on Jul 29, 2017
     | 1,174 views

    Stewardship is about more than money. A faithful steward not only stewards his/her resources, but his/her connection to the body of Christ. This message touches on offering ourselves to the body of Christ through our presence in worship.

    We continue our Generosity: Possible series this morning discovering what it means to be generous with our presence. When we became a Christian, and one who chose to walk the faith journey as United Methodist, not only did we commit to support the body of Christ with our prayers and witness, but ...read more

  • Generous With Our Story Series

     | 1,371 views

    A disciple can be generous with our resources, our time and our presence, but the most transformative element of a disciple's life is his/her story. We should be as generous with our story as we are with our money and time.

    Generosity: Possible Generous with Our Story 2 Timothy 1: 1 – 14 It is only natural for us to connect the idea of generosity with money. We automatically think of financial resources when we consider the idea of being generous, but the life of generosity for a disciple of Jesus Christ ...read more

    A sermon dealing with what it means when we say "Jesus is Lord!"

    Jesus is… Jesus is…Lord Philippians 2: 5 – 11 One of the favorite movies around the Malone household is The Princess Bride.

    A sermon dealing with what it means when we call Jesus the Savior.

    Jesus is…Savior 1 John 4: 9 – 14 Did you hear the story of little Fruit Stand? When the 1960s ended, San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury district reverted to high rent, and many hippies moved down the coast to Santa Cruz.

     | 1,150 views

    A sermon dealing with what it means to say "Jesus is...healer."

    Jesus is…Healer Luke 5: 17 – 26 Of all the names/titles given to Jesus, i.e., Lord, Savior etc., this name “Healer” is perhaps the most challenging for us in the 21st century.

     | 2,786 views

    A sermon dealing with what it means to call Jesus "Friend."

    Jesus is…Friend John 15: 9 – 15 Jesus is friend. Saying Jesus is friend sounds a bit too personal, too informal, or a bit too friendly, even. Jesus is Lord. Yes, that sounds appropriate to us. It exalts him. He is Lord, high and lifted up. Jesus is Savior. Yes, that too. It defines his ...read more

     | 2,490 views

    Human government and human leaders are ordained of God. How do their roles intersect with faithfully living as a disciple of Jesus Christ? That is the focus of this sermon.

    As a pastor, there are two things I try never to talk about in church: religion and politics. Well, here we go! Not only talking about both subjects, but wedding them together in a message series. Let me offer some disclaimers as we begin. This will not be a message series that “takes ...read more
