2019 Stewardship Video #1

October 17th, 2019

The Rev. Nick Lannon shares his first teaching on stewardship of the 2019 Stewardship Campaign. This teaching is on 2 Corinthians 9:6-11, in which Paul talks to that church about their money, using seed as an illustration. The best thing to do with our money, says Paul, is to sow it in faith, in service of the proclamation of the Gospel.

Comfort in Affliction

October 13th, 2019

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on Luke 16:19-31, in which Jesus tells a parable about a rich man and a poor man named Lazarus, who end up in hell and heaven, respectively.

Faith in him is credited to us as righteousness.

New Mercies Every Morning

October 6th, 2019

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on Lamentations 3, in which God's mercies are said to be "new every morning." This is very Good News for those of us who are enmeshed in the world's expectation, that "if we're not growing, we're dying." Jesus meets us in that tomb, and he is a resurrection expert.

Pursuing Righteousness

September 29th, 2019

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on 1 Timothy 6, in which Paul charges Timothy (and us) to pursue righteousness, and to keep God's commandments "without spot or blame." How are we to live in light of this radical call to holiness? We are to remember our sin, our need for a savior, and the Good News that that savior, Jesus, has come and completed his work.

September 29th, 2019

Dr. Michael Nicholson continues his class on introductory apologetics, Reasonable Faith, with a discussion of the "argument from design." Does the complexity of our natural world argue for a creator? An intelligent designer? Can it have arisen by chance? What is Christianity's claim, and does it make sense?

His Master's Possessions

September 22nd, 2019

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on Luke 16, in which Jesus tells an odd parable about a dishonest manager. When we are generous, we are generous with what is God's. In the same way, Jesus is generous with his master's possession, giving us God's own goodness, which alone can save us.
