Trust in the Lord - February 13, 2022

Jeremiah 17:5-10To view, this service you can follow the link to our Facebook page: Worship Service for Sunday, February 13

Trusting in your own human strength might work in some cases. Ultimately there is one experiment that will prove the unlikelihood that you have strength enough in which to trust.

Physics class: pull yourself up by the bootstraps.

Faithful Ministry = Faithful Community - February 6, 2022

Romans 1:8-14To view, this service you can follow the link to our Facebook page: Worship Service for Sunday, February 6

“First of all, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for all of you, because the news about your faithfulness is being spread throughout the whole world. I serve God in my spirit by preaching the good news about God’s Son, and God is my witness that I continually mention you in all my prayers. I’m always asking that somehow, by God’s will, I might succeed in visiting you at last. I really want to see you to pass along some spiritual gift to you so that you can be strengthened. What I mean is that we can mutually encourage each other

God Loves the world Through Our Actions - January 30, 2022

Matthew 25:34-40To view, this service you can follow the link to our Facebook page: Worship Service for Sunday, January 30

Last week I started a conversation based on Pastor Debbie’s comment about the rare church, one that is both open and affirming, and true to its commitment to be a disciple-making church is a bit like looking for a purple unicorn. I made the admission that I think that is a worthy pursuit. To begin to become a church that people outside of the church want to try on for a while and at the same time a church that ups the ante of becoming a disciple-making fellowship, a congregation that values and teaches both public and private worship, and a group of believers and friends who want to begin to transform the world around us into a better world after this past two crazy

What Will It Take to Imagine? - January 23, 2022

During pastoral transitions, the pastor who is leaving often tries to wrap up everything that they're feeling in things like newsletter columns and one on one, that's a very difficult thing to do. And I know for Pastor Debbie going to Wenatchee was not on her radar. Her radar for Rick was to at least stay one more year to finish his degree to do the teaching to go forward. But God and the cabinet had something else in mind, and she left some good words of wisdom for this congregation to move forward into.

One of them I found most intriguing was her conversation with you in an E-spire article. And I know we get terms confused, E-spire is kind of a

The Leadership/Drum Major Instinct - January 16, 2022

Mark 10:35-45To view, this service you can follow the link to our Facebook page: Worship Service for Sunday, January 16

Behind every sermon, there is often a quote, an image, and at times even another sermon from another preacher. If we are not careful preachers often become unintentional plagiarizers. I try as much as I can to avoid that so I want you to know upfront this morning that the ideas I am using are not unique to me. I am borrowing phrases from a speech that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr gave on February 4, 1968, exactly two months before his assassination. He borrowed and adapted his from a 1952 homily called “Drum Major’s Instinct” preached
