    Mosaic | Rejected

    Mosaic | Rejected

    Before Nathanael meets Jesus, he wonders if anything good can come from Nazareth. So before he even got to know Jesus, Nathanael wanted to reject Jesus.

    ​But even though Nathanael wanted to reject Jesus, Jesus doesn't reject Nathanael. Jesus accepts us all. How different would our world be if we acted more like Jesus and less like Nathanael?

    Mosaic | A New Kingdom

    Mosaic | A New Kingdom

    We live in a world that can feel obsessed with gaining wealth and power regardless of the cost. We live in a world that can feel obsessed with privilege and pedigree - where who you know is more important than who you are. We live in a world where we're only worried about ourselves.

    ​But in the book of Mark, Jesus tells us that a new kingdom - the kingdom of God - is near. And the kingdom of God will turn this world upside for good.

    Mosaic | Just Like Jesus

    Mosaic | Just Like Jesus

    As Jesus stepped into the waters of the Jordan River to be baptized, he couldn't have been in a more ordinary place...but this ordinary place would show us just how extraordinary Jesus is.

    ​As Jesus stepped into the waters of the Jordan River to be baptized, Jesus showed us that he is both ordinary & extraordinary. Jesus showed us that he is just like us & greater than we will ever be able to understand.

    Mosaic | The Picture of Jesus

    Mosaic | The Picture of Jesus

    After Jesus was born, some people were so excited to meet him that they traveled for months on end. But not everyone felt the same way. One man wanted to kill this baby, others wanted to ignore Jesus altogether.

    As we try to better understand who Jesus is, we face the same choice these people did. We can meet Jesus with excitement - knowing he will change us. We can want nothing to do with Jesus. Or we can ignore him. But we all have to decide.

    The Meaning of Christmas

    The Meaning of Christmas

    Every year countless children sit down with a sheet of paper in one hand and a marker in the other to make their Christmas list. Over the years, these lists have included everything from Rubik's cubes, to Tickle Me Elmo, to the latest video game system. And, with all the emphasis we put on these lists, it can feel like Christmas is all about presents.

    ​But there is far more to Christmas than just a few gifts. Christmas tells us the incredible story of God becoming one of us, and reminds us that God loves us all.

    Ugly Christmas Sweater | Ugly Actions

    From presents to buy to trips to arrange, Christmas is filled with plans. But, if we want to leave the ugly to the sweaters, we also need to plan how we will act this Christmas.

    But sadly most of us spend way more time picking out the perfect gift or putting together an itinerary than we do thinking about how we will respond when we face difficult situations. But in this sermon, we'll be reminded that the only way to avoid ugliness is to plan ahead.
