The Trash Can Congregation

January 31st, 2021

One Pleasing Son

January 10th, 2021

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on Genesis 1, in which the world is spoken into existence, and John 1, in which Jesus is baptized. We don't have to create ourselves in a way pleasing to God. Our creator says he is pleased with Jesus, and this pleasing, earned by Christ, is given to you for free.
