Upcoming and Recent Sermons

You Came From Where?

You Came From Where?

Sunday, January 12th

Scripture:
Matthew 2:1-12

On Epiphany we move quickly from Jesus' birth to the visit of the "wise men" which probably occurred at least a year after his birth. The visits of the shepherds and that of the three kings from the east are usually confused in popular culture and even within Christian circles. Let's focus on the import of this visit which occurred after a 1500 miles journey driven by prophecy and celestial events that are beyond any easy explanation.

Our Invitational Calling

Our Invitational Calling

Sunday, August 4th

Scripture:
1 Corinthians 1:4-9

God issues a call that invites us to choose Him every day as our closest companion. It is a call that calls us to freedom and to fellowship!

Your Positional Calling & Empowerment

Your Positional Calling & Empowerment

Sunday, July 28th

Scripture:
Ephesians 4:1-4

This week we look at the first aspect of being called as a child of God, a joint heir with Jesus Christ to God's incredible promise of a relationship unparalleled in all of creation. This first and fundamental calling is called "positional". It is permanent and relationship based.

The Callings of God

The Callings of God

Sunday, July 21st

Scripture:
Galatians 5:13

I recently read an article that spoke of our 3 callings. These words of Saint Paul are an excellent springboard to consider what our freedom in Christ looks like.
