03-15-15 8 & 10:30 am “Repenting of Rebelliousness” The Rev. Dr. Peter C. Moore

James Dean starred in the 1955 movie many of us remember called: Rebel Without a Cause. He was a symbol of a lost generation that only knew what they were against, not what they were for. As we think of rebellion in all its many forms, let us not think the concept pertains only to others. Instead, let’s look deeply into our own hearts and see where this same attitude lurks in the shadows of our hidden lives. While we do so, let’s also ponder how God knows these hidden places, and shines his light into them. But here’s the question: what does that light look like? Is it a brilliant beacon that exposing us to God’s harsh scrutiny? Or is it a glowing lamp that shines the way out? You be the judge.

03-08-15 9:30 & 6 pm “We Need to Repent of Relativism” The Rev. Luke Rasmussen

Is truth or morality a fixed or fluid reality? Some say yes some say no and others end up somewhere in the middle. In God’s word he has given us guidance on these matters. As we open up the Scripture lets get his take on this matter find out how he answers these questions. We just may find that he is calling us into a new and better reality.

03-08-15 8 & 10:30 am “Everything Matters If Anything Matters At All: Repenting of Relativism” The Rev. Mark Avera

We live in something of a philosophical alphabet soup.  Everyone has an opinion about God, our purpose, how we got here, what’s right and wrong, and whether or not there is really any such thing as truth.  Secular humanism and materialism both assert that matter is all there is and when you die your matter and energies are absorbed back into the larger cosmos.  Buddhism has its Nirvana; Hinduism has its millions of gods; and Christianity, Islam and Judaism all have their unique understanding of the One True God.  The atheists think that religion is only a path to extremism and violence and that we need to stop being so primitive, accept reality, and get on with making the world a better place by science and smarts.  It’s called relativism, it dominates the cultural landscape, and it demands that we be “tolerant” of everyone and all beliefs.  There’s only one problem with relativism….  God spoke saying “I am the Lord your God.  You shall have no other gods before me.”

03-01-15 “Repentance of Pride, the Spiritual Cancer, Second in a Lenten Series on Repentance” The Rev. Alfred T. K. Zadig, Jr.

What is true repentance? As we entered our second Lenten Sunday on this critical word, let me remind us from the first Sunday in Lent that repentance is both a physical turning away from our sin, as well as a hatred and repulsion of that sin! Each Sunday, through Lent we will analyze repentance through a different topic. The First Sunday in Lent was on repenting of materialism, this past Sunday was on repenting of pride. The opposite of pride is humility. In fact, cut out this definition and put it on your refrigerator, “Humility is not thinking of less of ourselves, but looking to Jesus and thinking of ourselves less.”

02-22-15 “Repent and Believe the Good News Series 1: Noah, Materialism and Giving up to Go Up” The Rev. Alfred T. K. Zadig, Jr.

I love bumper stickers! In fact, this past Sunday I shared some of my favorites. I also shared one that is very common today… Co-exist… (referring to world religions). On the surface, it looks fine and politically correct; in reality it is very deceiving.  We can easily infer from it that all religions are the same. Yet the Love of God through Jesus Christ separates Christianity from every other world-wide religion. A love that moves God to send His Son Jesus to die for us.  In that death we have been given the gift of repentance, forgiveness, and a restored relationship with God. This gift of repentance is our theme for Lent, Repent and Believe the Good News! Each Sunday through lent we will look at repentance through a different lens. This past Sunday, we focused on Noah and the need for his people to repent for the materialism that had taken over their life.  Noah learned something that could be my new favorite bumper sticker…You Have to Give Up to Go Up.

02-15-15 “Love in the Time of Crucifixions and Crowns” The Rev. David Booman

This morning, on a weekend celebrating the wonders of romantic love, we come to Paul’s great love letter to the Philippians. In it Paul celebrates a love that has transformed his life and the community of Philippi. Indeed, so radical is this love that it has led Paul to count everything else in his life as mere rubbish and refuse. Today, if you are longing for love or lamenting what has been lost, let Paul share with you a love that will change your life forever.

02-08-15 “The Mission Fulfilled” The Rev. Max Wilkins

When Jesus read from the scroll of Isaiah in His first public message, He finished by saying “Today this scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.” Certainly He was saying something about who He is and what He was inaugurating with that first message. But His words have implications for our role in the fulfillment of the mission as well, implications that many of us may have never considered. If the mission of Jesus is the reason the church exists, that mission is only fulfilled as we join Jesus in His mission. And there are strong answers to all of the objections we sometimes put out there to justify our failure to get going. This message will consider the words of Jesus from a new perspective and answer some of the excuses we give to Him, and will challenge us to fulfill this mission!

02-01-15 “The Prophet and the Word of God” The Rev. Mark Avera

Today we are bombarded with messages and voices demanding our attention.  Most are clever enough, and it is difficult to know which voices to trust with our ears.  Some flatter us; others make bold promises; still others threaten or berate.  The Old Testament leader of Israel named Moses – the sea-splitting, plague-summoning, law-giving man of God – was the most famous prophet or mouthpiece of God known to the Jews.  But then came Jesus.  The crowds wondered if He could be the promised prophet who would be like Moses.  Centuries after Jesus was crucified, even the leaders of Islam declared that He was a great prophet.  What does it mean to say that Jesus is a prophet?  According to the God who spoke to and through Moses, a true prophet would be known by his words.  And a true prophet should be listened to and heeded.
