    The Voice of Elijah

    The Voice of Elijah

    “The Voice,” a singing competition on NBC will begin its 22nd season in the Fall of 2022. It’s popularity points toward the power of not only the sung, but also the spoken word. So many voices clamor for our attention daily, some that we want to hear and many that we don’t. During this series we’ll hear a variety of voices in scripture that will encourage us, surprise us, challenge us, and comfort us. May our individual and corporate prayer be, “Lord, speak, your servants are listening.”

    This sermon examines the voice of Elijah based on 1 Kings 19:1-15a.

    Trust God

    Trust God

    Easter begins a new season. It’s a new week and a new day. The power and glory of the resurrection forges forth a new way of being. Life and death have been transformed through the work of Christ. The emptiness of the tomb demonstrates the power of what has been left behind as well as previews the promise ahead. In the weeks of the Easter season, we journey from the tomb with Jesus and the early disciples from that perspective. From the Day of Easter to the Day of Pentecost, we find God in flesh and in spirit moving in the world and in us…from the tomb.

    For this sermon, Pastor Harold examines Acts 1 and our trust.
