Sermon

God Above You, For You, and With You

June 7th, 2020

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on Genesis 1, in which God creates, and Matthew 28, in which Jesus commissions his disciples. What does it mean that God is a trinity, three and one? It's Good News: it means he is your creator, your redeemer, and your sustainer, all at once.

Genesis 1, Matthew 28

Sermon

One at the Foot of the Cross

May 31st, 2020

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on Acts 2 for Pentecost Sunday, in which the Holy Spirit is released into the world. How can our fractured world be redeemed? By the release of the Holy Spirit through the proclamation of the Good News about Jesus Christ.

Sermon

A Victory for Sufferers

May 24th, 2020

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on 1 Peter 4 and 5, in which the apostle tells his readers to rejoice in their sufferings, and John 17, in which Jesus prays for his disciples just before his arrest. There is Good News for sufferers: you are never alone, and your battle is already won in Christ.

Sermon

The Resurrection is his Name

May 17th, 2020

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on Acts 17, in which Paul preaches to the Athenians in the Areopagus. Their urge to worship, he says, is correct...it's just aimed in the wrong direction. Paul gives them the name to worship: Jesus Christ, the one who was raised from the dead for the sins of the world.

Acts 17

Sermon

There is a Way

May 10th, 2020

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on Acts 7, in which Stephen is martyred, and John 14, in which Jesus claims to be the way, the truth, and the life. How do we respond when we hear that there is a God, and that we're not him? We can put our fingers in our ears, or we can repent and beg for a savior. The Good News is that Jesus, that savior, is always there for us.

Acts 7, John 14

Sermon

A Good Shepherd and an Open Gate

May 3rd, 2020

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on John 10, in which Jesus refers to himself both as an open gate and a good shepherd. What Jesus is teaching us is that he's everything to us, and he is the source of our safety.

Sermon

A Contradiction that's not a Contradiction

April 26th, 2020

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on 1 Peter 1, in which the people are told that an impartial God will inspire "reverent fear." Our God, though, is both impartial (judging everyone fairly) and partial (loving only his righteous son). The Good News is that Jesus has covered us by his sacrifice for us, and for the sins of the world.

1 Peter 1

Sermon

A Glorious God, Grave Sinners, and a Grand Grace

April 19th, 2020

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on Acts 2, in which Peter preaches the first sermon after the resurrection. In just a few sentences, Peter tells the whole story of Christianity: God is glorious, we are grave sinners, and yet, we have a grand grace, on account of Christ, which saves us.
