Genesis (Part 2): Creation

February 2nd, 2020

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?

Genesis 1-2


Living and Dying in Peace

February 2nd, 2020

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.

Luke 2


Foolishness...Unless it's True

January 26th, 2020

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.

1 Corinthians 1


Genesis (Part 1): A Book of Beginnings

January 26th, 2020

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.

Genesis 1-11


God's Lethal Weapons

January 19th, 2020

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!

Isaiah 49


God Goes Public

January 12th, 2020

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.

Isaiah 42, Matthew 3


Remember Who You Really Are

January 5th, 2020

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.

Ephesians 1


In Light of the Gospel

December 29th, 2019

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on Isaiah 61-62, in which the prophet promises that God will be at work in the world today. Christmas has come and the savior Jesus has now what? Well, God will keep his grace coming!

Isaiah 61, Isaiah 62
