Sermon

Jesus Slays The Tyrannosaur

November 4th, 2018

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on Psalm 119:1-8, in which the Psalmist interacts with God's law. He begins in confidence and ends in fear. There is Good News: Jesus came to give the righteousness that God's law demands.

Sermon

Jesus Is Good Enough For You

October 28th, 2018

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on Hebrews 7:23-28, in which Jesus is called a new and better high priest. None of us is ever good enough, but Jesus' triumphant Gospel shout is that he has been good enough for us.

Sermon

Not Desert Pete

October 21st, 2018

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on Isaiah 53 and Mark 10, in which the suffering servant is promised and in which Jesus takes the mantle. Iniquity and transgression are all we have to offer our savior...but there is Good News: they are all that he accepts.

Sermon

Jesus Wants Your Everything; Jesus Is Your Everything

October 14th, 2018

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on Mark 10:17-27, in which a rich young man asks Jesus how to be saved. Instead of telling him the Gospel, Jesus crushes him with the Law. What gives? There is Good News: though Jesus demands our everything...he also gives us everything.

Mark 10:17-27

Sermon

A Gift, Not A Loan

October 7th, 2018

Jesus Stands For Us

September 30th, 2018

Sermon

Christ's Upside-Down Victory

September 23rd, 2018

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on Mark 9:30-37, in which the disciples are afraid to ask Jesus questions. Christ's victory is incredibly counter-intuitive: he wins by losing and defeats death by dying.

Sermon

This Ought Not To Be So

September 16th, 2018

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on James 3:1-12, in which James says that the tongue is a dangerous thing. How do we react to a world in which things aren't as they should be? We call out for a savior, who has promised that his saving work is complete.

James 3:1-12
