This week's message, "Joy! Rest! Hope!"

Sunday, June 28, 2020

This week's message, "Joy! Rest! Hope!", is from Psalm 33. Videos are available on our YouTube channel and Facebook page.  As always, the audio only version is available on the recent sermons section of the web site or from your favorite Podcasting app.

Pastor Spencer says, "No one who trusts in God the Lord is ever disappointed at last. And no one who waits on him in trusting hope will ever be let down."

This week's message: "The Gathering of the Glad!" - Psalm 122

Sunday, June 21, 2020

This week's message, "The Gathering of the Glad!", is from Psalm 122. Videos are available on our YouTube channel and Facebook page.  As always, the audio only version is available on the recent sermons section of the web site or from your favorite Podcasting app.

Pastor Spencer says, "What lies behind these psalms of ascent, and the picture they draw out for us, is a great theology of shared pilgrimage—a grand calling, a divine story, a transforming vision, a liberating orientation, the “expulsive power of a new affection,” eyes to see and ears to hear and a heart that understands, that altogether give us a sense of collaborative direction, a common goal, and a unified end point. We are they who look for something that cannot be seen. Glory awaits, and Christian pilgrims maintain a steady but determined discipline of facing forward together."

This week's sermon - “Is Not the LORD Your God With You?” - 1 Chronicles 22:17–19

Sunday, June 14, 2020

This week's message, "Is Not the LORD Your God With You?", from 1 Chronicles 22:17-19, is a timely reminder that as we are on mission, taking the gospel to the world where we live, work, and worship, we are not on our own. Videos are available on our YouTube channel and Facebook page.  As always, the audio only version is available on the recent sermons section of the web site or from your favorite Podcasting app.

Pastor Spencer says, "The Lord’s people in the world—and such a world as this—aren’t to be anxiety-ridden, fear-driven, despair-laden, situation-defined, self-contained little black holes of wretchedness, sucking up and shattering who or whatever happens to stumble over their “event horizon.” No! Rather, we’re to be beacons of shining light in “this present darkness,” to be blocks of preserving salt in all this dank decay (Matt 5:13–16), to be convincing evidences of freedom among all who’re bound and tortured in the merciless slavery of Satan and sin and self (John 8:36; Rom 6), and to be always “ready to give an answer to anyone who asks about the hope” [hope that’s apparent, inexplicable, and attractive] that’s in us (1 Pet 3:15). But how? What reality (and perspective) sets and keeps us, God’s people, on the right path?"

This week's message: Colors, a Canvas, and God's Kaleidoscopic Wisdom - Ephesians 3:1-10

Sunday, June 07, 2020

This week's message, "Colors, a Canvas, and God's Kaleidoscopic Wisdom", points to the amazing, gracious diversity of God's chosen instrument of the gospel in the world, the church, from Ephesians 3:1-10. Videos are available on our YouTube channel and Facebook page.  As always, the audio only version is available on the recent sermons section of the web site or from your favorite Podcasting app.

Pastor Spencer says, "There’s nothing surprising at all, to the world or to angels, about a very narrow spectrum of folks getting together for worship and fellowship because they all like the same kind of music, and the same kind of clothes, and they’re comfortable with each other socially, or all have the same basic interests and preferences. Nothing special about it! That looks to the world, and probably to the angels, suspiciously like a religious version of the golf club. Oh, but when all kinds of folks come together across the great divides of generation, race, class, education, personal preference, and all that stuff to worship and serve Christ together, that’s when the angels gasp! And even the world has to sit up and take notice. Why? Because only God can do such a thing!"

Our Plans for Resuming Services

Saturday, June 06, 2020

As we have mentioned over the last several weeks, the Elders have been working on plans for how and when we will resume meeting together for worship on Sunday mornings. We have prepared a brief video that outlines our plans for this. This will be a phased process beginning in a couple of weeks on June 21. You can find the video here. We have also prepared a PDF with the same information that you can download here. Please review the information and let us know if you have questions.

Looking forward to seeing all of you again soon!
