This week we gather around the Damascus road experience. Saul was simply a horrible person leaving pain and wreckage in his wake. But suddenly he was changed and turned his whole life around.

A Prophet from the Farm
Many of us will recognize those simple yet profound words of Micah 6:8 - "Do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with God." Such beautiful instructions can stir up respect and admiration for this prophet who lived 2800 years ago. But, do you know much about him? For instance, did you know he is one of the earliest agrarian poets known to history? Did you know he helped give voice to a growing cry from the small farmers of Judah? This Sunday, join Pastor Patrick Messer as we get to know this rural radical and how his words speak vividly to the kind of justice we need in our time
Timeless Wisdom for a Time Such as This Week 1 - September 6, 2020 - Pastor Jim - Sermon
On this first week of our three month journey through our key Bible texts, Dr. Jim Keck will explore the most elevated scripture of all - "God is Love." This text equates the very essence of reality - God - with the moment we truly value a person. Sadly, not every person is being valued (loved) in our society. The Godly society would honor the intrinsic value of each person regardless of race, sexual orientation, personality and income. Beloved, let us love one another!
Timeless Hymns for Time Such as This: A Sermon Series Part III - August 30, 2020 - Pastor Patrick - Sermon
A Mighty Fortress is Our God
In this last part of our sermon series on three great hymns, Dr. Jim Keck explores the reformation classic "A Mighty Fortress is our God." Written by Martin Luther just ten years after he nailed his protestations on the Wittenberg door, it has been called the Battle Hymn of the Reformation. Yet so powerful is this hymn, even Catholic churches now sing it in mass. Although Jim prefers the tune to Here Comes the Sun by the Beatles and finds "A Mighty Fortress" to be overly bombastic there is much theological ore to mine in this great hymn of our tradition. Join us at 10:30am this Sunday!

Precious Lord, Take My Hand
When we sing to God, we offer back our very breath to the One who first gave us life. The scriptures show us that people of faith are called to sing their joy and praise - yes, but also their longing and prayer... and even their frustration and anger. Let's explore why we sing what we sing, and let's marvel at the soundtrack that God composes in our lives. Join us at 10:30am this Sunday!
Timeless Hymns for Time Such as This: A Sermon Series - August 16, 2020 - Pastor Patrick - Sermon
We are unable to be singing our great hymns together right now. So Dr. Jim Keck and Tom Trenney selected three hymns that have a timeless power and can speak to a hurting world. This week, Dr. Keck will preach on the awesome song "Great is Thy Faithfulness." It was written as a poem in 1923 and then set to music. This great hymn has much to still say. Join us at 10:30am this Sunday!
