In the Chaos of the Sea - Pastor Bonnie Wilcox - Psalm 104

Psalm 104:1-13, 24-26 The God of Wonders is the God of the Ocean, too. But the vast oceans also present peril and the threat of chaos. How do the Bible stories set on the ocean relate to our life of faith today? Pastor Bonnie reminds us that God is in the chaos with us. God the Creator and Provider Bless the Lord, O my soul.    O Lord my God, you are very great.You are clothed with honor and majesty,    wrapped in light as with a garment.You stretch out the heavens like a tent,    you set the beams of......

Animals Talking it Out with God - Pastor Bonnie Wilcox - Job 38 - 39

Our God of Wonders has created such variety of animals and other creatures! Pastor Bonnie looks at the place of Animals in God’s Kingdom, whether or not they have anything to do with humans. The story of Job in the Old Testament is our placeholder for this conversation. Job 38:1 – 4 The Lord Answers Job 38 Then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind: 2 “Who is this that darkens counsel by words without knowledge?3 Gird up your loins like a man,    I will question you, and you shall declare to me. 4 “Where were you when I laid......

When Life Gets Scary, We Need a Bold Crew - Nathan Roberts - Romans 8:31-39

Romans 8:31-39 God’s Love in Christ Jesus What then are we to say about these things? If God is for us, who is against us? He who did not withhold his own Son, but gave him up for all of us, will he not with him also give us everything else? Who will bring any charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. Who is to condemn? It is Christ Jesus, who died, yes, who was raised, who is at the right hand of God, who indeed intercedes for us. Who will separate us from......

What Languages Are We Called to Speak? - Pastor Bonnie Wilcox - Acts 2:1-21

Acts 2:1-21  The Coming of the Holy Spirit When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place. And suddenly from heaven there came a sound like the rush of a violent wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. Divided tongues, as of fire, appeared among them, and a tongue rested on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other languages, as the Spirit gave them ability. Now there were devout Jews from every nation under heaven......

What Kind of Fruit is Your Life Growing? - Nathan Roberts - Romans 6:1-14

Romans 6:1-14 Dying and Rising with Christ What then are we to say? Should we continue in sin in order that grace may abound? By no means! How can we who died to sin go on living in it? Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? Therefore we have been buried with him by baptism into death, so that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life.......
