“Is Jesus a Shapeshifter!?”

On February 26, Pastor Katy preaches on Exodus 24:12-18. This week is Transfiguration Sunday, the Sunday before Lent begins. It’s the one day of the year when we linger on a story about Jesus taking some disciples up a mountain where the glory of God suddenly shines around and through Him. As you can imagine, the disciples fumble with […]

“You, God, and Everyone Else”

On February 19, Pastor Jim preaches on Leviticus 19:9-18. “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Who said that? Obviously, Jesus said it, but where did it originate? Our Scripture tells us that it came from the Hebrew Bible, specifically Leviticus 19:18. I sometimes wonder what it’s like for our Jewish friends when they hear us attribute to Jesus things […]

“Cheeky Jesus”

On February 19, Pastor Katy preaches on Matthew 5:38-48. When Jesus talks of turning the other cheek and of going the extra mile, have you ever wondered what he really means? Passively rolling over and letting someone walk all over you doesn’t sound like something Jesus would want us to do, and yet we also know […]

“Planted, Watered, and Growing”

On February 12, Pastor Jim preaches on 1 Corinthians 3:1-9. The ancient church in Corinth was a mess. They fussed and fought with one another and elbowed to the front of the line during Holy Communion. They were partisan and chose sides. Some were enamored with Paul and others with Apollos, the dynamic preacher and […]

“Murder, Anger, Adultery, Oh My!”

On February 12, Pastor Katy preaches on Matthew 5:21-30. On this third Sunday in Jesus’ famous Sermon on the Mount, Jesus begins to heighten the stakes. The black and white laws from the Old Testament are no longer enough as Jesus pushes us to look beyond the letter of the law and to live out the spirit […]

“Salt and Light”

On February 5, Pastor Jim preaches on Matthew 5:13-16. Jesus said that we are the salt of the earth and the light of the world. Someone said that we are called to be “tasty and lit up!” Let’s think together about what it means to season and light up our world.

“Odd Blessings”

On January 29, Pastor Jim preaches on Matthew 5:1-12. The Beatitudes. We must be careful with familiar Bible passages. There is always the temptation to assume we’ve got them all figured out. A little voice inside says, “Move along, move along, there’s nothing to see here.” Actually the Beatitudes are some of the most radical and surprising […]

“Beati-What!?”

On January 29, Pastor Katy preaches on Matthew 5:1-12. The opening words to Jesus’ infamous Sermon on the Mount are often referred to as the Beatitudes. A series of blessings that seem so counterintuitive to how we think of blessings today, that it forces us to re-think what it means to be blessed.

“Seeking God’s Face”

On January 22, Pastor Pam preaches on Psalm 27:1-8. Psalm 27’s text has an interesting blend of confidence and weakness. It is a Scripture that is attributed to the “pre-anointed” King David during the years he spends fleeing from the wrath of King Saul. David writes about the importance of having trust instead of fear, seeking […]

“Come and See”

On January 15, Pastor Katy preaches on John 1:35-42. The first words uttered by Jesus in the Gospel of John are a question to some of John’s stray disciples whom Jesus discovered following him one day. “What are you looking for?” It is a profound question for not only the disciples, but also for us […]
