    Now Live: Mary Magdalene

    April 28, 2019  — 

    Resurrection is not just a one time event; it is intended to lead us into an entirely different kind of life – it transforms everything! Mary is one such person – her faith died on Friday, but her love kept her in the game and resulted in her becoming the first witness of the Resurrection. Resurrection Life is, for her and us, a life on Mission!

    Scripture: John 20:1-18

    Easter: Now, Believe

    April 21, 2019  — 

    We hear four different stories of how Jesus’ disciples came to believe that He had risen from the dead.

    Scripture: John 20:24-31
  • The Book of John: Are You His Disciple?

    The Book of John: Are You His Disciple?

    April 8, 2019  — 

    Jesus has deliberately required people – powerful people – to choose where they stand regarding who He is, and to then decide what to do about that.  It is no less true for His disciples – and, like almost everyone else, they find themselves stuck between the Jesus they need, and the Jesus they want.  Sooner or later,everone has to answer the question that floored Peter, “Are you one of His disciples?”

    Scripture: John 18:1-27

    The Book of John: Jesus on The Holy Spirit

    March 17, 2019  — 

    As Jesus increasingly focuses on preparing his disciples for their life mission to follow his death, he promises them help.  The Holy Spirit will come to them and help them in all the ways that Jesus did-and more! And, He will also be active in the world to support their mission.  They will not be left alone!

    The Book of John: Who Do You See?

    February 17, 2019  — 

    As Jesus continues on his deliberate way to the Cross, he uses this sign to further challenge the ways people see – what a “sign” means depends on where you stand when you view it. The image of blindness and sight brings the stark differences to sharp focus. So the key question forming in this sermon is this – “Who do You See?”

    Scripture: John 9
  • The Book of John: What You See Is Who You Get

    The Book of John: What You See Is Who You Get

    February 10, 2019  — 

    Jesus continues to use the “signs” to both separate those who know Him and are willing to follow Him to life from those who feel threatened by Him and conclude that He must die. Along the way, He makes it clear that to follow Him is not just about believing things about Him – but choosing to enter fully into His life, to become a consumer of eternal life, which is the only way to really live.

    Scripture: John6: 16-70

    The Book of John: Jesus Beyond Belief

    January 27, 2019  — 

    Jesus invites us to consider what it might mean to show up in our own lives and meet him as he actually is. Sometimes he disappoints our expectations and challenges us to discard our preconceived ideas and build on the deep reality of who he is.

    Scripture: John 5:1-19

    The Book of John: From Death to Life

    December 9, 2018  — 

    Nicodemus, a member of the ruling council and Jesus have a talk about being “born again”; that Jesus is the light sent from God, not to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him.
