“Born from Where?”

On March 12, Pastor Jim preaches on John 3:1-7. This passage is one of the most familiar in the New Testament. Privileged, powerful, and pious, Nicodemus comes to Jesus filled with certainty, saying, “Rabbi we know that you are a teacher who has come from God…” It’s as if Jesus reached out and pulled a string on […]

“Spiritual Spy Games”

On March 12, Pastor Katy preaches on John 3:1-8. Sneaking around under the cover of darkness. A Pharisee by day and a Jesus follower by night. Nicodemus feared everyone knowing the truth about the questions he asked in secret and the faith he harbored in his heart. If we’re honest, many of us live by […]

“The Conversation”

On March 5, Pastor Jim preaches on Genesis 2:15-17, 3:1-4. Why did God put the tree of the knowledge of good and evil in the garden if he didn’t want them to eat from it?  Mark Twain once said that God shouldn’t have told them not to eat the fruit. God should have told them not to […]

“The Big Four-0”

On March 5, Pastor Katy preaches on Matthew 4:1-11. Forty days and forty nights. Forty years wandering in the wilderness. Forty is a number we see over and over again throughout the Scriptures, and it’s a number that emerges again this first Sunday in the forty-day Lenten season. We often believe that when we are going through […]

“Fire on the Mountain”

On February 26, Pastor Jim preaches on Exodus 24:15-17. In the book, “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe,” the children cross over into Narnia and eventually meet a married couple of beavers. The beavers tell them about the great lion, Aslan, who rules Narnia. The children are excited about the lion and ask, “Is he […]

“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 […]
