J.P. Sundararajan (The RCA’s director for Global Mission) preaches from his least favorite passage of scripture in the whole Bible. Yet, this scripture is integral to his story. A story of how God brought a kid from India to the United States and into the Reformed Church in America family and now the Director of […]
Message by Pastor Mark. King David, “burned with anger” when the priest Nathan came to him and shared with him the details of a civil suit with which he was struggling. A rich man takes a poor man’s only lamb and serves it up as dinner for a traveler who stops by his home one […]
Message by Pastor Mark. Uzziah was one of the Good Kings in Judah. He reigned in Jerusalem for 52 years. But something happened that turned a good King bad. That something was anger and an unrepentant spirit. But the anger was an outflow of other sins that crept into his life over time. Let’s learn […]
Message by Pastor Mark. In your anger, it is easy to shut the door on God and not trust that God has a plan for it and is constantly pursuing you in and with His love. In the story of Cain murdering his brother, Abel, we see God’s amazing love in the midst of Cain’s […]
Message by Pastor Mark. In Jonah Chapter 4:3, Jonah says, “Lord, take away my life, for it is better for me to die than to live” (because he is so angry). What’s surprising, Jonah’s anger is directed at God because He is so Gracious. What???? Jonah wants to die because God is too gracious???? Yep! […]

Message by Pastor Mark. Judas (Iscariot) was given every opportunity to be shaped for greatness. Instead, he squandered the opportunity that Jesus laid before him and sold his soul to the Devil. He gave up everything to follow Jesus but never gave him his heart. He was more interested in his own goals and ambition […]
Message by Pastor Mark. Not all the 12 disciples are well known and famous. Some of these disciples are not spoken of. This should give us hope that we can do great things for the Kingdom of God. Matthew 10:1-5, Revelation 21:14
Message by Pastor Mark. In John 11:1-16 we are introduced to Thomas for the first time. He is ready to die with Christ. But Jesus has other plans for him and the rest of the disciples. He is ready to give them a glimpse of the future and prepare them to LIVE for Him and […]
Message by Pastor Mark. Matthew, or Levi, was a disciple of Jesus, but slightly different from the rest as he was a tax collector, one of the most despised occupations of the day. Looked down upon by men, Matthew felt something needed to change in his life and when Jesus called, Matthew answered the call. […]
Message by Pastor Cam. Bartholomew/Nathanael was rarely mentioned in Scripture. However, he was called ‘an Israelite indeed, in whom there is no deceit.’ High praise for an ordinary person. Let that be said of us as we seek to better follow the Rabbi, Jesus. Join us on Sunday as we learn from Nathanael the human, […]
“Philip is your classic ‘Process Person’”, says John MacArthur. Philip needed all the details for every situation. He was a planner and wanted to have everything figured out in advance. Faith was difficult for Philip and Jesus needed to teach him that “full” faith in Jesus is required for greatness. John 6:1-15
Message by Pastor Mark. We know a lot about the Apostle John, mostly from his own writings. Aside from Paul and Luke, John wrote more of the New Testament than anyone else (guided of course by the Holy Spirit). John wrote his gospel, I. II. III John, and the book of Revelation. From his writings […]
Message by Pastor Cam. We all have different passions, but at the top of all of our lists should be Jesus. James, the Son of Zebedee, a Son of Thunder, is a disciple filled with passion for the Lord. Passion can be a great thing when it is rightly focused and dangerous when it is […]
Message by Pastor Cam. Jesus’ disciples came from various backgrounds and temperaments. Andrew was a behind the scenes worker who is known for his ability to welcome people to Jesus. This morning we look at Andrew’s quiet confidence in his Savior, Jesus Christ. John 1:35-42
Message by Pastor Mark. Are Leaders Born or Made? This is the age-old question. Great Leaders are born with some of the right raw material but unless it is shaped by the master that leadership potential may never be developed. However, we all lead something even if it’s simply ourselves, and we all need Jesus […]
Message by Pastor Cam. This morning we begin our summer sermon series titled, “Shaped for Greatness.” We will journey through the Gospels seeing how Jesus shaped and molded His 12 disciples, and countless others, to be ready and able to spread the Gospel message to the nations. 1 Corinthians 1:18-31
Message by our Youth Director, Ben Kroeze. Welcome to our youth service! This morning we take a look at the great commission and how that gives us our identity and mission.
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 […]
