Only when you see yourself as you truly are can you begin to realize the extent of Gods mercy. It’s only by Gods presence and grace that we can even begin to lift our eyes to something good.

The answer may surprise you.  Text: Proverbs 1:8; 22:6; 19:18 and 14:26; Ephesians 6:4

Stones & a Donkey…If stones yearn to worship, what might a donkey teach us?

Speaker: Brian Martin
Topics: Faith, wonder, Worship

On Palm Sunday 2020, much uncertainty grips our world. The world was quite uncertain as Jesus entered Jerusalem on a donkey. Jesus said, if worshipers fail to worship, the stones would cry out.

Of Saints & Sinners…Worship the King who Transforms

Speaker: Al Stoltzfus
Topics: expectation, the cross, Worship

The events that occur after the birth of Jesus offer a graphic picture into the mission of Jesus. Magi from the east come bearing gifts. They seek the child-king. They also stir up the ire of king Herod. What follows is a horrible scene that presses us deep into the evil mess which Jesus has come to redeem. Text: Matthew 2:1-23

Celebrating Radical Generosity

Speaker: Al Stoltzfus
Topics: authenticity, Generosity, mission, money, Tithe, Worship

The solution to a life that is leaning away from God is to return to God, and one of the ways we return is through our giving. Giving is an expression of worship which reflects trust in God’s steadfast love and gracious provision in Jesus. Where the Old Testament speaks of a tithe, the New Testament looks to the self-giving, sacrificial love of Jesus inviting us into a life of generous giving.Text: 2 Corinthians 8:1-15; 9:6-15; Psalm 24:1
