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.......

I Am Not Ashamed - Pastor Jill Bergman - Romans 1:1-17

Romans 1:1-17  Salutation Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, set apart for the gospel of God, which he promised beforehand through his prophets in the holy scriptures, the gospel concerning his Son, who was descended from David according to the flesh and was declared to be Son of God with power according to the spirit of holiness by resurrection from the dead, Jesus Christ our Lord, through whom we have received grace and apostleship to bring about the obedience of faith among all the Gentiles for the sake of his name, including yourselves who......

Failure is Fascinating - Pastor Bonnie Wilcox - Acts 13:1-3, 14:8-18

Acts 13:1-3, 14:8-18 Barnabas and Saul Commissioned Now in the church at Antioch there were prophets and teachers: Barnabas, Simeon who was called Niger, Lucius of Cyrene, Manaen a member of the court of Herod the ruler, and Saul. While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, “Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.” Then after fasting and praying they laid their hands on them and sent them off. Paul and Barnabas in Lystra and Derbe In Lystra there was a man......

The Edge of the Comfort Zone - Pastor Jill Bergman - Acts 10:1-17

Acts 10:1-17 Peter and Cornelius In Caesarea there was a man named Cornelius, a centurion of the Italian Cohort, as it was called. He was a devout man who feared God with all his household; he gave alms generously to the people and prayed constantly to God. One afternoon at about three o’clock he had a vision in which he clearly saw an angel of God coming in and saying to him, “Cornelius.” He stared at him in terror and said, “What is it, Lord?” He answered, “Your prayers and your alms have ascended as......

An Easter Story in Three Acts - Pastor Bonnie Wilcox - John 20:1-18

John 20:1-18 The Resurrection of Jesus Early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene came to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed from the tomb. So she ran and went to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one whom Jesus loved, and said to them, “They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we do not know where they have laid him.” Then Peter and the other disciple set out and went toward the tomb. The two were running together, but......

Journey to Jerusalem: the King Enters

Matthew 21:1-11 Jesus’ Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem When they had come near Jerusalem and had reached Bethphage, at the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two disciples, saying to them, “Go into the village ahead of you, and immediately you will find a donkey tied, and a colt with her; untie them and bring them to me. If anyone says anything to you, just say this, ‘The Lord needs them.’ And he will send them immediately.” This took place to fulfill what had been spoken through the prophet, saying, “Tell the daughter of Zion,Look, your king......

The Pestering Widow and the Unjust Judge - Pastor Bonnie Wilcox - Luke 18:1-8

The Parable of the Widow and the Unjust Judge The last of our parables in the Short Stories of Jesus, we find that Jesus does not begin the parable like the others. Instead of saying, “The Kingdom of God is like…,” he says that this story is about the need to pray always and not lose heart. Pastor Bonnie wonders with us what these two difficult-to-like people may be up to. Luke 18:1-8 Then Jesus told them a parable about their need to pray always and not to lose heart. He said, “In a......

In Contempt or In Grace? - Pastor Jill Bergman - Luke 18:9-14

Luke 18:9-14 The Parable of the Pharisee and the Tax Collector He also told this parable to some who trusted in themselves that they were righteous and regarded others with contempt: “Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. The Pharisee, standing by himself, was praying thus, ‘God, I thank you that I am not like other people: thieves, rogues, adulterers, or even like this tax collector. I fast twice a week; I give a tenth of all my income.’ But the tax collector, standing far......
