“The Gate”

On May 7, Pastor Jim preaches on John 10:1-10. John’s Gospel contains the great “I Am” statements of Jesus: “I am: the bread of life; the light of the world; the good shepherd; the resurrection and the life; the way, the truth, and the life; the true vine.” Sunday we will consider the time Jesus said, […]

“Where’s the Fence!?”

On May 7, Pastor Katy preaches on John 10:1-10. It’s “Good Shepherd” Sunday, so we turn to the 10th chapter of John. It’s the chapter where Jesus’ claim to be the “Good Shepherd” has resulted in countless paintings and artistic renditions of the gentle-faced shepherd carrying a wayward sheep on his shoulders. We picture this […]

“We Are All a New Creation”

On April 30, Pastor Pam preaches on 2 Corinthians 5:16-20. This Sunday at the 11:15 service we will be welcoming 12 youth into membership here at Oak Hill UMC.  Come join us as we learn more about what it means to be a new creation in Christ. Paul was a persuasive disciple who worked hard, helping […]

“Easter is a God Thing”

On April 23, the Rev. Dr. Tim Abel preaches on John 20:19-31. The apostle Thomas didn’t believe that Jesus had risen from the dead. He needed to experience it for himself by “putting my hand where the nails had entered his hands and by putting my hand in his side.” Sound familiar? We need to […]

“He’s Not Here”

On April 16, Pastor Jim preaches on Matthew 28:1-10. Earthquake! That’s what greeted the followers of Jesus and the entire city of Jerusalem that first Easter Sunday. Matthew is the only Gospel that tells us this. We are used to Easter: the baskets, the song about the hopping rabbit, and, of course, church. In a way it’s a rather […]

“The Greatest Egg Hunt Ever”

On April 16, Pastor Katy preaches on Matthew 28:1-10. Have you ever watched the moment of “Go!” when a pack of children is unleashed upon a field of Easter eggs? It’s beautiful, chaotic, and single-minded excitement with the unified goal of collecting the most eggs possible. The Marys arrived at the tomb, eyes puffy and […]

“Donkey and a Colt?”

On April 9, Pastor Jim preaches on Matthew 21:1-11. This Sunday brings somewhat of a mixed message. It’s Palm/Passion Sunday. We celebrate the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem while at the same time reminding ourselves that it’s a ride that will ultimately lead to a cross. For some time now I’ve been interested in Matthew’s account of the […]

“To Be Continued…”

On April 9, Pastor Katy preaches on Matthew 21:1-11 (palms); 27:17-26 (passion). Were you there? Did you see it? Caught up in the crowd, waving palm branches and screaming “Hosanna!” as he rode into town on a humble donkey. From crowds singing praises to crowds shouting their condemnations; the palms that once filled the streets […]

“Can These Bones Live?”

On April 2, Pastor Jim preaches on Ezekiel 37:1-6. Imagine being placed in a valley of broken-up skeletons. From horizon to horizon you see nothing but death and dryness. If a voice asked you, “Can these bones live?”, what would you say? Sounds like a lost cause to me. Our Catholic sisters and brothers actually claim four […]

“Two Days Longer”

On April 2, Pastor Katy preaches on John 11:1-6. Throughout the season of Lent we have been focusing on encountering the living Christ both in Scripture and in our lives today. It’s easy to spend the entire season jumping straight to the cross and Jesus’ resurrection as the only things that matter, but Jesus doesn’t […]
