Formation Class

Michael Neal continues our Formation class studying Genesis 1-11 with a look at what the image of God means. We know that humans were created in this image, but that raises all sorts of other questions: is the image spiritual or physical? Who and what qualifies? And when God says "our" image, to whom is he referring? Michael addresses these questions and more in this fascinating discussion.

Sermon

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on Matthew 5, in which Jesus asks his followers to be salt and light to the world. How do we reconcile Christ's free gift of righteousness with this call to radical obedience? It is, in fact, that free gift which creates us anew, bringing forth obedience in our lives.

Michael Neal continues this Spring's study of Genesis 1-11 with a look at chapters 3 and 4, the temptation, the serpent, and the entry of sin into the world. And yet, even in the midst of this darkest of episodes, we see foreshadowing of the Good News of Jesus Christ.

Sermon

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on Luke 2:22-40, in which the boy Jesus is presented in the Temple. Simeon is able to wait, in faith, on God to keep his promise. How? Aren't our lives about striving to fill void after void? The Good News is the God is a promise-keeper, and Jesus is his promise kept.

Formation Class

Michael Neal continues our study of Genesis 1-11 with a close look at the creation narratives. How is God working? What kind of world is he creating and with what is he filling it? And how does it all point to Jesus?

Sermon

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on 1 Corinthians 1, in which Paul addresses some divisions in the Corinthian church. Jesus, he insists, is the only important thing, a message which sounds like foolishness to the world, but is the power of God to those who are being saved.

Formation Class

Micah Childs begins our study of Genesis 1-11 with an overview of the book, a discussion of authorship, and a conversation about two foundational themes: God and his creation are separate and distinct, and that human beings are the pinnacle of that creation.

Sermon

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on Isaiah 49, in which Israel is sent out to witness to the nations. How can a sinful people do God's work? When it's actually God doing the work and when the work is to announce the Good News that God saves sinners!

Sermon

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on Isaiah 42, in which God presents his Messiah to the world, and Matthew 3, in which Jesus is baptized by John in the Jordan River. Here, God is staking his reputation on Jesus, which is incredibly Good News for us: Jesus pleases God, and gives that pleasure to us as a free gift.

Sermon

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on Ephesians 1, in which Paul greets that church as though it's full of perfect disciples of Christ. But there's another truth: they're pretty profound sinners, too. Paul calls them to live a life worthy of their calling by reminding them of the Good News: their new (and true) identity in Christ.
