Sermons on The Means of Grace

I Want to Know

Sermon Text: Philippians 3 When we want to learn things we can either “Google” it, or pull up a YouTube Video. Back in the Apostle Paul’s day the internet wasn’t quite what it is today. So if Paul wanted to know something had to either listen or experience it. This Sunday, he invites us say, “I Want to Know Christ,” right along with him so we never ever forget where our salvation comes from.

These Magi set out for a land … they didn’t know. Following a star … they didn’t know. Looking for a King … they didn’t know. They don’t sound very wise, do they? But the Bible describes them as “Wisemen.” Join this Sunday as we celebrate the Wisemen’s visit…

A Scary Situation

You can also watch on our Vimeo page. Sermon Text: 2 Kings 22 What if a congregation hadn’t used a Bible in so long, they didn’t even have one laying around? What if a pastor and the church leaders didn’t know why they were doing what a church does every week? What if church members had gone without hearing the Word of God for so long, they didn’t even realize something was missing? Sounds strange, doesn’t it? This Sunday, join…

God of the Impossible – Pentecost Worship

You can also watch on our Vimeo page. Do you feel like you need a miracle right now? Maybe just a little one? What if I told you that there are miracles happening every day? Our God is the God of the impossible! This Sunday we celebrate Pentecost. We’ll be marveling at the miracles of the Holy Spirit – those miracles he performed in the early days of the Christian Church and those miracles he performs in the Church today.
