Sermon: The Two Christs


Pilate asked him, "So you are a king?" Jesus answered, "You say that I am a king. For this I was born, and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone who belongs to the truth listens to my voice." (John 18:37)

In which we discover that Christ the King points us to Christ the Savior...

Sermon: Halloween vs Christmas


"Truly I tell you, this poor widow has put in more than all those who are contributing to the treasury. For all of them have contributed out of their abundance; but she out of her poverty has put in everything she had, all she had to live on."

Let’s pray. Dear God in heaven, we ask you to join us here this morning, and we trust that you are here with us. May my words be your words and all of our thoughts, your thoughts. We pray all of this in Jesus’ name. AMEN.

It was the Sunday of the ingathering. Jesus sat down opposite the treasury, and watched the crowd putting their pledge forms into the treasury. Many rich people pledged lots of money. A poor widow came and put her pledge form in. It was crumpled, torn, and dirty. On it, she had written that she pledged a penny.  It was all she had. Jesus he called his disciples and said to them, "Truly I tell you, this poor widow has put in more than all those who are contributing to the treasury. For all of them have contributed out of their abundance; but she out of her poverty has put in everything she had, all she had to live on."

The message here is simple, and easily applicable to your everyday life. Giving large sums of money to God isn’t what counts. Giving everything you have, ALL YOU HAVE TO LIVE ON, THAT counts!  Many of you will have received another copy of our 2013 pledge form in the mail this week, and as we fill out our pledge forms, I’m reminded of something a good friend said once about Halloween: Halloween has become more Christian than Christmas!

Sermon: Jesus is Not a Stranger



"I will thank you with an unfeigned heart when I have learned your righteous judgments. I will keep your statutes; do not utterly forsake me." (Psalm 119:7-8)

In which we discover that it's God's job to stay close to us, rather than the other way around...
