If you're looking for stand-alone sermons or messages that are not part of any of the series, you can find them here. These messages cover a wide range of topics and texts.

Isaiah foretold the coming of Christ some 700 years before. As we look into Isaiah, let's prepare well to celebrate the arrival of the Messiah and delight in the wonders of his love.

The incarnation shows Christ on the initiative, born to set his people free from their sins. Nothing was in his way then and nothing is in his way now. We have Christ the King and he literally is Christmas.

November 2020. Many think there is no place for lament and doubts in the Christian life - that both God and your church expect you to put on a smile and act like everything is just fine.  But Scripture says otherwise and proves that raw and honest prayer is a healthy Christian practice. Habakkuk helps connect the dots when life simply doesn’t make sense.  He teaches that, while you cannot demand a reason for your pain, you can expect a redemption.

May - August 2021. Sometimes we get frustrated with life.  Its difficulties and inconsistencies make us desperate for answers, but God offers something better than answers.  He offers himself.  Ecclesiastes is an invitation to the weary traveler who is frustrated, beaten, and worn, to enter a shelter and lay your questions there.  It also speaks to the person who finds life very unfulfilled.  God offers the solution to dissatisfaction.  We will scratch our heads together at times.  We will wonder at the mysteries of God.  We will ask hard questions.  Ultimately, we will find joy in him.  This journey begins at the gateway of fearing God. 

September - November 2021. There is no perfect Christian, and we all have potluck theology on some level that needs constant weeding, but we are still the church by God’s grace and there is always hope as we look to Christ.  Paul knew the remedy and aimed his words in full focus on Christ alone.  We would do well to do the same.  Let’s be a church that is captivated by Christ as we worship him.

God created humanity in his image so that they would be his representatives in the world and steward it in his likeness. This reality should impact the way we view the various issues covered in this series: human value, ethnicity, gender, and singleness/marriage.

If we are to follow Jesus and follow him effectively, then we are faced with two questions that are of utmost importance. Who is Jesus? and What is a disciple? We'll answer these questions as we go through the Gospel of Mark, so that we can be equipped to be true disciples. 

 God shapes our identity based on what he has done for us in Jesus Christ. He made his people what they are, and our identity is completely wrapped up in Christ’s work. As a church family, then, let’s clarify who we are by looking again at the person and work of Jesus Christ.

The call of Christ is to abide in him. John writes to arms us with truth and encourage us to be a light as Jesus is light; love as God is love; and to fellowship in the common life we have in Jesus. 

Life requires U-Turns. The book of Jonah is full of them. We're all walking on a path that is the wrong way, but by his grace, God turns us around 180 degrees on a path towards him.

God called Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and gave them promises as they took steps of faith in active obedience. Ultimately all of our stories point to the glory of God as he fulfills his plan in this world. 

The Bible says that children are a heritage from the Lord (Psalm 127:3). Whether they join us through birth or through adoption, the arrival of a new child into our family calls for celebration, thanksgiving, and a renewal of our commitment to train future generations to hope in God (Psalm 78:4-7).

We are a community of disciple-makers toward the Great Commission. Each year, there are messages geared toward this identity statement, namely during Missions Emphasis and Outreach Sundays.
