Nobodies Matter

Jesus went out of his way to embrace the unloved and unworthy.  He sought out the folks who did not matter at all to the rest of society, to prove that even “nobodies” matter infinitely to God.  Jesus proved in-person that God loves people, not as a race or a species, but as individuals. This Epiphany we will lift the voices that often go unheard in order to allow their perspectives on the Biblical stories to enrich our faith as well.  We all matter to God! 

Can I Come Home?

One of the most beloved parables told by Jesus involved a wayward son who dared to return home to his father and older brother.  Would he be welcomed or not?  Many today also feel far from God, wondering about the kind of welcome they too might receive if they were to turn around and dare to return home to God and to church.  Our journey through Lent will be a journey for all of us, a highly intense homecoming involving deep reflections and sensitive emotions.  The messages each week will include soul-searching passages lifted from the pages of the book The Return of the Prodigal Son, by Henri J. M. Nouwen, alongside references to Rembrandt’s famous painting of that homecoming scene.  Come join us on the journey home to the grace of God offered by Jesus. 

Let's Do It Again!

The birth of Christ was filled with beauty and wonder.  But do you ever feel its meaning has been lost amid hectic activities and superficial wrappings?  This Advent series will help you and your loved ones to reclaim the sparkle and spirit of our holiday traditions, as you discover the truth that lies beneath them.  “Let’s Do it Again!” will help you to create a set of special traditions to try out with your family, so that young and old alike might look forward to year after year of joyous times together.  Come and open the door for Christ to once again be the soul of our celebrations.  Our prayer is that you will be captivated by the stories of how our cherished Christmas traditions took root and grew, filling this most wonderful holiday with holy awe, spiritual joy, and family warmth! 

Paul's Letters to the Church

Paul’s letters to his 1st century churches could easily be letters to our 21st century congregations.  Come learn the dynamics behind these passionate epistles; come discover how they continue to change lives still today.

No, No, No ... Wrong Way

Welcome to the race called your life.  Around and around the track we go, like players in a child’s video game.  Temptations and pitfalls are all along the way which tend to spin us out of control and head us in the opposite direction of the way that the game creator intended us to go.  But the gentle voice of the Holy Spirit is ever ready to alert us whenever we are going the wrong way, and put us on coarse again.  Christ faced temptations and overcame them, and so can we. 

Jesus Christ CEO

The Upside-Down Management of the World’s Greatest Leader

Those in leadership positions often study other successful leaders for insights and direction.  What better leader might we strive to emulate than the CEO of our lives, Jesus Christ himself?  But how strange were the management lessons he gave.  How upside-down were the leadership lessons he taught.  Could these tactics really lead to success still today? 

What If?

Imagine the Difference ~ Be the Difference! 

In this series, we open up our minds to the possibilities for the world.  We look at going beyond what is or has been to ideas of what could be.  Christ continues to call us beyond our guilt, our fear, and our apathy to far deeper levels of life, justice, and connectedness for all.  Along with each message of inspiration, a hands-on, difference-making project will be taking place immediately following worship in the Fellowship Hall.  Open your mind to the greater possibilities, then do your part to be the difference!

The Incredible Challenge

Parenting Helps for Those of Us Without Capes

Nothing is more important in your life than being one of God’s tools to form a human soul.  If only it were easy, but it is not.  Together we will walk through the stages of the children entrusted to our care and upbringing.  Along the way, we will laugh together at the inane struggles, learn together a helpful parenting principle or two, and remind ourselves of our divine calling as parents.  Keep the wet wipes handy, for parenting is messy business!

Can You Drink the Cup?

Our Lenten journey leads us into a deep exploration of a question that appears easy on the surface, but has the potential to radically change our lives at deeper levels.  Can you drink the cup? It is a question we should all take time to answer seriously as we draw near to Holy Week, and Jesus’ subsequent passionate death and resurrection.  What does it mean to drink the cup that Jesus had to drink? What does it mean to be a disciple in today’s world? What does it challenge us to do in order to completely drink the life we have been given?  The book, “Can You Drink the Cup?” by Henri J.M. Nouwen, will help guide our journey to more intimate relationships, with Jesus, ourselves, and each other.
