THE JONAH FACTOR
January 19 - February 16, 2019
The Jonah factor is the human tendency to seek any way but God’s way when called into mission. Jonah ran away from God when he was called to preach to Nineveh. We exhibit the Jonah factor when we run away from God’s call to mission.
December 1 - December 25, 2019
Journey with us as we explore the Word and listen to stories of angelic visitation. Often mystifying, these stories tell of heaven-sent creatures with messages for God’s people. As Christmas approaches, we think of the stories of the angels visiting Elizabeth, Zechariah and Mary. And who can forget the host of angels visiting the shepherds in the field? Angels abound in many of the season’s scriptures.
Unfortunately, the world has lost much of its capacity for awe. Skepticism abounds concerning such strange encounters with the divine, even during the seasons of Advent and Christmas. Too often, Bah Humbug rules the day! One wonders: Are we missing something when we dismiss these stories so easily?
Commit to joining us each week in person or online! Open your heart to awe this Advent and Christmas! Come and discover the majesty that awaits you!
TOWARD THE END OF TIME
November 3 - November 24, 2019
We remember the faithful who have gone before us into the Church Triumphant and are reminded of the promise of eternal life secured by the grace of God. Through God’s promise, we have hope and are able to encourage one another in the face of death.
Toward the end of time forces will rise that create tension, conflict and the need Christians to stick to the foundations laid by God’s grace. Battles may rage, but we are prepared in Christ to meet whatever challenges may come. We are directed to remember the sustaining love of God that empowers us and to emulate the steadfastness of Christ.
We ponder the realization of God’s mission at the end of time, when thousands shall gather at the throne of Christ the King. Through prayer, we are encouraged to hold to the faith that promises us an eternal place under the Lordship of Jesus Christ.
September 8 - October 27, 2019
“Life is difficult!” These are the opening words of M. Scott Peck’s classic self-help book on spirituality, The Road Less Traveled. They strike a chord with many people today. Whether facing personal or societal trauma or struggles for peace in a world that seems to be at war with itself, people today seem to face a myriad set of difficulties. Not surprisingly, religion is present at the heart of some of these modern realities. Once considered the most benevolent aspect of human existence, religion today is often vilified as the enemy of the people, a prison warden inquisitor of our precious freedoms. But are such accusations true? Or has something been lost in translation?
In this sermon series, we explore St. Paul’s Letter to the Galatians. There we will look beneath the headlines of our beleaguered world in search of the truth about religion and freedom. We will ask important questions inspired by the scriptures that promise to unearth the Christian truth buried under layers of cultural rust and misinformation. We will seek the keys of Christian freedom that offer to unlock the good news that finally declares us UNLEASHED!
RETURN FROM EXILE
June 23 - September 1, 2019
Our 2019 summer series delves into the book of Nehemiah. Nehemiah was an exiled Jew living in Susa (modern day Iraq) when God called him to led the returning Jews in the rebuilding of the Wall of Jerusalem, bringing to completion the previously stalled reconstruction of the Second Temple compound started by Ezra.
The modern world is filled with exiled people of every sort who daily experience alienation as a dominant mood of the times. The emerging church of Jesus Christ is called to build a place to which all exiles may come to find a homeland.
