“And Some Doubted” – Matthew 28:16-20

DOUBT:  We will we ponder some questions perhaps you have had or others around you have been wondering.  What does doubt look like amidst faith?  Even as the disciples received the Great Commission, scripture tells us that “some doubted.”

 

“Thomas Gets a Bad Rap – Doubt” – John 20:24-31

This morning, July 11, we welcome Noah Matthyssee, who is a guest to our pulpit and recent graduate of Calvin Theological Seminary.

This is part one of a two-part message on Doubt. He will be bringing part two next week Sunday, July 18.

This week is about asking questions — Is it okay for us to ask questions?  Is it a sign of bad faith for us to seek evidence for our beliefs?

“RECKLESS LOVE”

Three parables in Luke 15 help us understand God’s love. God’s love isn’t reckless but his love is selfless to the point of death, and our love is rarely, it ever, selfless. So, it’s hard for us to really understand the Love that He extends to us.

Quietly Courageous – Exodus 1:15-2:10

We celebrate our mother’s and all the women in our lives who are used by God to show us His love by their faith and courage in Him.

 

Come to the Table

Message by Pastor Mark.

What do you call our gathering at the Lord’s Table? Scripture makes minority references like: “Love Feast”, “The Lord’s Table” and “The Breaking of the Bread”. But The Church has landed on three main names for our celebration at the table. As we partake in this celebration together we will discover just how our names for this table meal reflect what happens when we partake.

I Corinthians 11:23-26

Are You Ready for This?

Message by Pastor Mark.

We have a high calling as Christians – to look out for the well-being of our brothers and sisters, spur one another on to love and good deeds. We are the light of the world even when we don’t feel that we can be. Christ strengthens us and equips us for the good work of doing His will!

Navigating the Fog (Part 2)

Christ is Risen! This week we continue the story about an event that happened the day Jesus was resurrected – Jesus meeting Cleopas and his companion on the road to Emmaus. This is a story that we can all relate to and has powerful implications for the way we live and hope.
