    Remembering Jesus
    Series: n/a
    Have you ever wondered why we eat small pieces of bread and drink a sip of juice in some church services? You are not alone. Communion from an outsider perspective...it's weird. Yet, there is a lot packed into this tradition that has gone all the way back to Jesus. (Re)understand the tradition of Communion and how to remember Jesus.

    Love Your Neighbor As Yourself
    As we conclude our summer sermon series, The Ten Commandments, we finish up with the tenth word from God: coveting. Coveting is not merely an appreciation of something from a distance, but rather an uncontrolled, inordinate, selfish desire to crave something you do not have. Pastor Jim gives both silly and serious examples in his message to us.

    Blessed by the Truth
    Relationships depends on truth. We all know that truth-telling is essential to build trust in a healthy relationship. Then why is it so hard to tell the truth and lie. During this series, The Ten Commandments, commandment #9 says, “You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.” When we stop to consider this command, we realize, we are bound by lies, but blessed by the truth. So what falsehoods or deceits do we need to confess and give up this week so we can be blessed by the truth.

    Desire Faithfulness
    Today as we dig into the seventh command, "do not commit adultery," Pastor Jim tactfully yet pointedly deals with the marriage covenant between a man and woman in marriage. Marriage is a symbol of divine faithfulness, just as Christ is faithful to the Church. When we feed into something, it sticks around. What you nourish, will flourish. It's the same thing when it comes to our faithfulness with our spouses. What desires are you feeding that may need to stop? What areas are you nourishing in your marriage that need to continue?

    Embrace Life
    As we move into Commandment #6, "you shall not murder," Pastor Jim reflects on life. After all we were all created in the image of God. We see life de-valued though when Cain killed his brother Abel. Life is something that is sacred and should be embraced. Sometimes we don't embrace it when we actually do murder. However, Jesus words teach that us that even our anger or words can be just as dangerous as murder because we don't value life of another.

    What’s in a Name?
    Naming things are important. Adam and Eve named the animals. We name our kids. God told Moses I AM WHO I AM. There is power in names. It reveals who we are on a more intimate basis. However, we can often misuse names too. When the Lord commanded "do not take the name of the Lord in vain," we ought not use the name of the Lord in a false, phony or frivolous way. After all, there is power in the name of our God. Let's dig a little deeper...

    No Image
    We find ourselves in week two of our summer sermon series The Ten Commandments. You've probably heard of them before. Last week, we covered that God gives these rules for our benefit and meant for relationship between God and us and one another. Relationship comes before rules. Today, we look at commandment number two, "You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything..." When Israel would stray from their relationship with God, it almost always began with the worship of idols. What about today, what idols do we worship? Pastor Jim would suggest the images we make could cause us to stumble. In other words, how does our understanding of God limit God?

    Defining the Relationship
    Today is the first Sunday in our summer sermon series on the Ten Commandments. You've probably heard of them before. But do you know the Ten Commandments? Our hope is that by the end of summer you wouldn't just recite them, but you would live into them. The Ten Commandments weren't given to Moses and the Israelites as a set of rules, but established a relationship with them and us. That relationship have implicit rules to help us flourish and give us identity.

    The Beauty of Grace (Part 1)
    We continue our short sermon series, Lost and Found by sharing the story of the Prodigal Son taught by Jesus. May you have heard the story before or perhaps not, either way, it's a story that displays the heart of the Father for the "cherished missing." Some need to hear today that God's grace is for them. Others need to extend that grace to those who are lost and invite them home.
