Jeremiah 29:10-14

How many of you have heard verse 11 somewhere before? For I know the plans I have for you. Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Christians love this passage. It offers such a beautiful promise. We use it pretty loosely. It makes us feel all warm and fuzzy inside. And the promise is true. But what it doesn't show us is what comes before this. Most of us don't know the context in which God said it.
How many of you have spent much time studying the book of Jeremiah? Ok, so let's take a few minutes to put things in context. Jeremiah was a prophet. And prophets are sent by God when

Genesis 1:26-31

We are starting our new worship series about identity. Who are you? As Kay shared earlier, we have a lot of voices telling us who we are and what we are about....making value judgments about us because of what they think they know And as Christians, we are told there is a larger truth—God's truth. God says who we are...we are created, given a purpose, beautifully and wonderfully

Matthew 2:1-12

Simeon had to have received a vision, a word, a something that was then confirmed when Mary and Joseph brought their 6 week old son to the temple. And Anna, she saw and believed and proclaimed it

Proclaim Faith - December 31, 2017

Luke 2:22-39

Who in your faith life do you trust? I mean really trust? You know they are faithful, they are prayerful, they listen to God, and they genuinely hear from the Holy Spirit? They're not in the "they sound crazy but they could be faithful" category, but the genuinely faithful category. And their faith extends beyond the basics such that if you had a new experience in faith you could go to them to see if you are crazy or if you experienced God. Who is that person? Maybe you know someone personally,

Luke 2:1-7

There are lots of things we could look for in this story and we could imagine all sorts of details to bring this story to life.
We could imagine Mary sick as a dog for those first few months.
We can imagine her young and fearful, anxious about becoming a mother. Visiting her cousin for comfort and support.
We can barely imagine her daring to ride a donkey 9 months pregnant for 97 miles from
