Fourth Sunday after Pentecost  Mark 4:35-41
Pastor Lisa preaches, “Faith and friend through any storm?”

Jesus naps while the disciples and he cross Lake Gennesaret in a boat. A storm comes up, and the disciples panic while Jesus sleeps on. Roused by his frantic disciples, Jesus calms the storm, then asks the disciples “Don’t you have any faith at all?!” Well, do we? Who provides your hope and calm in the storms of life?

Third Sunday after Pentecost  1 Samuel 15:34-16:13
Pastor Rich preaches, “What’s Your Heart Condition?”

Both Jesus and the Hebrew scriptures fully agree that it is only with the heart that one can see rightly. That truth is witnessed in God’s decision to anoint David as the new king of Israel. It is so important to remember that our God does not see as humans see. All too often, we look on outward appearances, but the Lord looks on the heart. What kind of heart is God looking for?

Second Sunday after Pentecost/Holy Communion  Psalm 138
Pastor Rich preaches, “Great is Thy Faithfulness”

Today’s scripture reminds us who is in charge: God!  In light of God’s faithfulness to us individually and communally, how will we respond?  Half-heartedly? Or like the psalmist who sang, “I give you thanks, Lord, with my whole heart!”

First Sunday after Pentecost/Trinity Sunday  John 1:1-14; 3:16,17
Pastor Rich preaches, “God is One. God is Three. God is a Community!”
The trinity – the notion that God is three persons in one – is certainly a mystery.  That truism is as profound and practical as it is mysterious.  Today’s sermon explores the doctrine of the trinity’s significance for community in general and the specific community we call church.

May 23, 2021 – Pastor Rich Darr – Pentecost Sunday

This Sunday: Pastor Rich preaches, “Earth, Wind & Fire!”
Acts 2: 1-21 Happy birthday, Church! With tongues of fire and rush of wind the Church is born on earth and publicly witnesses to God’s breath-taking inclusivity in the Spirit sent by God. Who is this Spirit and what role does the Spirit play in our personal and corporate life as the body of Christ on earth?

Pastor Lisa preaches, “Love is the Question and the Answer.”
Sixth Sunday of Easter/Mother’s Day   John 15: 9-17

This sixth Sunday of Easter we reflect on Jesus’ teaching in his farewell discourse in the Gospel of John, specifically the passage John 15: 9-17.  Jesus reminds us to love one another as he has loved us, laying down our lives for each other as he did for us, and bearing fruit that will last, so that God can bless us and others, through us.  What can that possibly look like?  Does it look like your mom and dad, or grandparents, perhaps a teacher or coach? How might we lay down our lives as Christians today, following Jesus?

Pastor Rich preaches, “Love Is the Greatest!
”Fifth Sunday of Easter/Holy Communion  John 15: 1-8; 1 Corinthians 13: 4-7,13
Love is the greatest! At least that’s what the Apostle Paul says in the love chapter of his first letter to the believers in the city of Corinth.  What does Christian love look like?  Where do we find it and how can we live it?  The Apostles John and Paul provide the answers!
