Online Worship: Fifth Sunday of Easter

New life cannot be stopped as the season of Easter continues. We hear about Jesus as the vine and us as the branches, called to bear fruit for the good of all. We hear about a gentleman who struggles to find his place in God’s house and hears words of grace and welcome. We hear […]

Online Worship: Fourth Sunday of Easter

Jesus as the Good Shepherd. We’ve probably all seen the images of a well-groomed Jesus in an idyllic landscape, cuddling an impossibly clean and fluffy sheep. Guess what? That’s not what being a true shepherd, a good shepherd, is all about. It’s hard, smelly, gross and dirty work, which is exactly why it’s good news […]

Online Worship: Third Sunday of Easter

Sharing a meal with Jesus and hearing the scriptures are the two main elements of our worship service every Sunday. Both happen in our gospel reading today. Jesus and his disciples share a breakfast of broiled fish while he explains to them the meaning of his suffering, death and resurrection. In fact, the gospel for […]

Online Worship: Second Sunday of Easter

Hiding behind locked doors after the tomb was found empty, Jesus’ disciples wondered what to do next. They were at a dead end until the risen Jesus came and stood among them and breathed peace into them. Our world also hides away behind locked doors of fear, prejudice, anger and violence.

Online Worship: The Resurrection of Our Lord

Christ is risen! Jesus is alive, and God has swallowed up death forever.

Online Worship: Fifth Sunday in Lent

We all have moments of heartbreak in our lives. It’s part of being human. But when our hearts are broken, it is like the turning of soil in the spring to be planted with new seeds and the hope of something new. Jesus tries to explain his coming death and resurrection using the image of […]

Online Worship: Fourth Sunday in Lent

Sometimes the Bible is just flat-out weird. Our readings today include a strange and mysterious story of poisonous snakes with the Israelites in the wilderness and a strange and mysterious conversation that Jesus has with Nicodemus at night. The thing that causes sickness and suffering in these stories is transformed into an agent of healing. […]

Online Worship: Third Sunday in Lent

What’s hiding in your closet? The Ten Commandments call us to trust that God will provide all things that we need. Therefore we don’t need to spend our whole lives accumulating more. When Jesus throws the merchants out of the temple, he is cleaning house, defending the worship of God alone and rejecting the ways […]

Online Worship: Second Sunday in Lent

What does it mean to follow Jesus in the way of the cross? What does it mean to trust God’s promise to work in and through the lives of our elders like Abraham and Sarah? How can we care for each other on our journey through life? Today we hear from guest preacher Pastor Jeff […]
