 Sermon Series in 2015

"Serving from the Heart: Finding Your Gifts and Talents for Service", Jan. 4 - Feb. 8. Sometimes we think that serving God is an obligation that isn’t meant to be enjoyable. The truth is that God wants us to find joy and fulfillment when we serve. That happens when we serve in a role that matches who God created us to be. Join us in a 6-week journey of self-discovery through sermons and group studies!

Lenten Sermon Series - The Life You've Always WantedFeb. 14 - Mar. 29. Based on the book by John Ortberg.

"The Stone's Rolled Away--Now What?", Apr. 12 - May 17. This post-Easter sermon series examines the reasons why people leave the church or choose to stay.

Alpha series, Sept. 13 - Nov. 22. What is the point of life? What happens when we die? How can we make the most of our lives? Many of us wrestle with these difficult yet foundational questions, searching for answers in many places, but often finding none. This fall, the pastors will address these and other questions through the Alpha series and the companion book, Questions of Faith by Nicky Gumbel. A basic introduction to Christian faith, Alpha is designed to explore the meaning of life and the answers to these questions found in the teachings of Jesus Christ. Topics include "Who is Jesus?", "Why and how do I pray?", and "How can I resist evil?"

Advent Study and Sermon Series - Not a Silent Night: Mary Looks Back to Bethlehem by Adam Hamilton, Nov. 29 - Dec. 24. Imagine Jesus from Mary’s point of view—proud of her son, in awe of his gifts and mission, guided by love for him as a person and so much more. In this book, Adam Hamilton begins at the end, with Mary at the time of her death, travels back in time to the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus then to Jesus’ life and ministry; and ends at the beginning, with the Christ child born in a stable, Mary’s beautiful baby.

 Sermon Series in 2014

"Living with Passion and Purpose", Jan. 12 - Feb. 23: Drawing upon scripture, recommended reading, and life experience, the sermon series challenges worshipers to discover their purpose and to passionately live out their life calling.

Lenten Sermon Series - The Prodigal God, March 9 - April 13: “There is more than one way to run away from God and defy him. But there is only one way back." This series focuses on The Prodigal God by Timothy Keller. Taking his trademark intellectual approach to understanding Christianity, Keller uncovers the essential message of Jesus, locked inside his most familiar parable. Within that parable, Jesus reveals God’s prodigal grace toward both the irreligious and the moralistic. This book will challenge both the devout and skeptics to see Christianity in a whole new way.

"Name that sermon!" April 27 - July 20: It's that time again! The pastors will use ideas submitted by the congregation as sermon subjects,
answering your religious questions in the pulpit! Check below for upcoming sermons.

The Book of Romans, August: During “Awesome August”, the sermons will be based on the book of Romans,
sometimes referred as Apostle Paul’s masterpiece. 

The Fruit of the Spirit, September - November: Each week, the pastors discuss the importance of a different Fruit of the Spirit.

The Advent Conspiracy, November - December: We all want our Christmas to be filled with a lot of things. Joy. Memories. Happiness. Above all, we want it to be about Jesus. What we don't want is stress. Or debt. Or feeling like we "missed the moment". Advent Conspiracy is a movement designed to help us all slow down and experience a Christmas worth remembering. But doing this means doing things a little differently. A little creatively.
It means turning Christmas upside down. This four-part series will help us to 1) worship fully, 2) spend less, 3) give more, and 4) love all.
