When God Moves In: Revelation 21:1-6
In a vision of the end, John shows us an amazing scene where the divine presence comes to dwell on earth in a new, incredible city. This picture stands in stark contrast with the familiar image of a few faithful christians being caught up from the earth into a weightless heaven. Join us this Sunday as wonder and worship at the prospect of a heavenly address on earth when God moves in! Part of the series The End. And the Beginning.

A Point of Reference: Revelation 1:4-8
Each person sees things from a different vantage point based on when, and where, we were born and what we’ve experienced. It’s part of the reason we argue about the best path forward as a society or who’s turn it is to do the dishes. Understanding the limits of our perspective can be freeing as we seek a connect to the one who is and who was and who is to come. Join us as we pursue a new point of reference.

The End. And the Beginning: 1 Corinthians 15:19-26
It can be scary when something ends, even when its something we wouldn’t describe as good or helpful. In the first letter to the Corinthians, Paul is writing to new christians about accepting the end of their old way of viewing realty and the startling revelation of a new one. The resurrection of Jesus, the Christ, he argues, is the hinge upon which the door to this new paradigm is swung open. Join us as we wonder, celebrate and worship together in light of this new reality.

A Confrontation with Life: Isaiah 50:4-9a
Confrontation is a part of life. How we engage and avoid it greatly affects the way our lives unfold. Join us this Palm Sunday as we see Jesus' mounting confrontation with the power of Jerusalem itself and what this moment can teach us as his followers.

Remembering Newness: Isaiah 43:16-21
If we find the necessary courage to ask for what we need, confessing what we have tried to do on our own that has hurt or harmed ourselves and others, a newness can open up to us. This newness is filled with togetherness, wholeness and hope. It is a place in step with the work of God. Join us as we conclude our series Failing at Sin!

Home Coming: Luke 15:1-3, 11b-32
What keeps us from returning to God when our bad decisions have caught up with us and we’ve “sobered up”? Why won’t we go “home” when that’s exactly what we want to do? Jesus answers these questions with a story. Join us as we immerse ourselves in the spiritual genius of Jesus’ parable about coming home. Part of the series Failing at Sin.

The Jesus Ask: John 13:1-17, 34-35
The story of Jesus washing the disciples’ feet is often read, but not lived. Foot washing isn’t a common practice across Christianity, despite Jesus’ explicit command to wash one another’s feet. What does it mean to live a life answering “the Jesus ask” of washing one another’s feet and how can that show up in our Lenten practices? What does it mean that Jesus asked his disciples to love one another, even when he knew the response wouldn’t meet his needs? This week we reflect on our own ability to answer The Jesus Ask, by reflecting on our own ability to ask for what we need.

Good Grief - Luke 13:31-35
When we talk about sin we are also talking about others expectations and what they think about our actions. What does God think of us when we stray from the path? Listen in to join the discussion. Part two of Failing at Sin, a Lenten series.

Stone to Bread
Do the ends justify the means? Jesus was tempted to think so during a pivotal moment in his life - the beginning of his public ministry. As we gather for the first Sunday of Lent we wrestle with the powerful pull of three temptations Christ faced in the desert. We will confront how their meanings and message shape our personal and public worlds and how we can resist turning stone to bread.

The Presence of God: 2 Corinthians 3:12-18
When Jesus died, one of the things that changed was that we as followers of Jesus now have access to God that those before never did. In this passage Paul shares what a big deal this is. Join us this Sunday morning as we talk about what an awesome privilege it is to experience the presence of God.

Family Rules Part 2: Luke 6:27-38
Last week we began to discuss the rules that those in the family of Jesus Christ gather around. This week we continue to explore the soaring heights of the law of Jesus as we are confronted with his instruction on how to treat our enemies and those who mean us harm. Part of the series KinFolk.

Family Rules - Luke 6:17-26
Every family has guidelines by which they live. The rules let us know what is off limits and for what we should strive. When you are kin through Jesus, the family rules are much more invigorating and distinct from the rules we find elsewhere in our culture. How these Christ-kin codes are interpreted by our denominational cousins and aunties is also hotly contested and debated. Kinfolk! Join us as we wrestle, explore, wonder, and work toward a more full understanding of the Jesus-family rules and an ever increasing creative flourishing. Part Four of the Kinfolk series.

What You Don't Gotta Do: 1 Corinthians 12:12-31a
As kinfolk, the family of God, we are part of a community unified by the grace we have received and the life we want to live(in Christ). While we strive and hope and pray for unity, we are not the same. We are part of one body but with different parts and a variety of functions, roles and life experiences- unity within diversity. This is an inspiring vision but living it, well that’s a bit different. Join us as we explore What you don’t gotta do in the family of God. Part three of the sermon series Kinfolk.

Soul Food: John 2:1-11
What type of picture comes to mind when you think of your relationship with God? Does it look like eating together at a table? In the scriptures one of the main metaphors for God and his people is a bride and groom-a marriage. When we receive the bread and the wine it is sometimes called the wedding feast. It represents a covenant of love renewed every Sunday between us and God. Listen in as we discuss this food for the soul. Part Two of Kinfolk.

Family of Origin: Luke 3:15-17, 21-22
Baptism marks the beginning of joining a new family- one started by Jesus. This family isn’t defined by race, allegiance to country, the will of a parent, or blood. It transcends our categories of “us” and “them”. It has the potential to reconcile the impossible chasms of fear and hatred amongst human identities and reconnect those alienated from God. Listen in as we we become reacquainted with our family of origin. Part One of the sermon series Kinfolk.

Wonderful Questioner: Luke 2:41-52
In the only glimpse we get of Jesus’ childhood we see a boy of twelve who was able to ask questions that astonished the religious leaders of his day. As we observe Epiphany this Sunday, we ponder the story of the child-who-would-become-savior and the place wonderful questions have in a life of faith in Christ.

Where Love Belongs: Luke 1:39-55
What is the cure for cynicism? In this season of Advent, we are reminded of the coming of Christ within the detailed account in the book of Luke - through the lens of two pregnant women. And through this account, we may ask ourselves: Where does love, something that requires a lot of courage, belong in our own lives? And how can we be containers of love to others? It is through this story that we discover when you are captive to envy or cynicism, it alerts you to your need of love and belonging.
