    The Gospel According to Paul - One in the Spirit

    The Gospel According to Paul - One in the Spirit

    Week 3 of series "The Gospel According to Paul"

    Scripture Lesson: 1 Corinthians 3:1-9; 12:1-11

    Paul wanted to speak sense into a fractured and dysfunctional church, and help them understand the importance of a shared faith and life with one another. Paul was urging Christians to understand that we are not alone in this life, and we are not alone in our faith. We have the strength of God to carry us forward, we have the community of believers to accompany us in our journey, and we have the power of the Holy Spirit to help us stay rooted in Christ and live as an example of God’s grace.

    The Gospel According to Paul: Saved by Faith, Led by the Spirit

    The Gospel According to Paul: Saved by Faith, Led by the Spirit

    Week 2 of series.

    Scripture Lesson: Galatians 2:15-21; 5:13-26

    In the Letter to the Galatians, Paul sets out to help these Christians understand the depth of God’s grace. He wants them to understand how new life, a life of faith, comes through the Holy Spirit and through Christ living within us. Paul then goes on to convey to the churches of Galatia how Christians are called to live because of the knowledge of Christ’s love for us that comes through understanding what the Scriptures teach about humanity and our need for grace. Paul was writing to these people to help them understand what it means to be guided by Spirit, not by the Law; he wanted these Christians to know what they are asked to do because of what Christ did for them, and for all sinners.

    The Gospel According to Paul: Act Like a Christian

    The Gospel According to Paul: Act Like a Christian

    Week 1 of series "The Gospel According to Paul".

    Scripture Lesson: 1 Thessalonians 5:12-25

    1 Thessalonians is the oldest extant writing from the New Testament – so it gives us a pretty good idea about the concerns of the early church. Paul wrote to the church in Thessaloniki to encourage them to remain steadfast in the face of persecution, and to allow their lives to reflect Christ. Paul’s hope for this church is that they would be/remain pure through Christ, and that their holiness would set them apart as followers of Jesus.

    Summer at the Beach: Weathering the Storm

    Summer at the Beach: Weathering the Storm

    Week 6 of sermon series "Summer at the Beach"

    Scripture lesson: Mark 4:35-41

    This week we take a look at the story of Jesus calming the storm. Our lives are often full of storms, and it is in those times that we either forget about Jesus' presence, or rely on it more than ever. This scripture reminds us that Jesus is always there with us in the midst of troubles and problems in life. And, it helps us to see that the storms we weather can become for other people signs of hope and examples of God's abiding presence in all of our lives.

    Summer at the Beach: Into the Waves

    Summer at the Beach: Into the Waves

    Week 5 of "Summer at the Beach" sermon series.

    Scripture Lesson: Exodus 14:10-25

    The story of the Israelites crossing through the Red Sea is one of the most recognizable stories in the Bible. But, what have we forgotten or replaced in the story because of our familiarity? How do those differences change our outlook? What can we learn about our lives and our faith when we pay attention to what the Israelites do (or don't do) and what God says and does for them?

    Summer at the Beach: Hilltop View

    Summer at the Beach: Hilltop View

    Week 4 of "Summer at the Beach"

    Scripture Lesson: Mark 5:1-20

    The story of the man we call the "Gerasene demoniac" is more than we often think it to be, more than just another story of Jesus performing a miracle for someone. This is a story that teaches us about God's love - and how we respond to God's love in our lives.
