A Picture Of Peace On Parade

Topical Sermon

April 10, 2022 • Pastor Matt Erdmann • John 12:9–22

Everyone loves the energy, excitement, expectation and enthusiasm of a parade. People gather, there's a festive atmosphere, community is created and people are celebrating the joy and fun of the floats, the marching bands, the drill teams, celebrities and all the other aspects of what a parade represents, reminds us about, and recognizes on certain important days of the year. We gather on parade days to commemorate, acknowledge, and be involved in a shared experience of being together and anticipating "who's coming down the parade route" in grand procession. On this Palm Sunday, we are going to look at an amazing and phenomenal parade that took place at the beginning of the final week of Jesus' life here on earth. We will gather as a congregation with excitement, enthusiasm and expectation of what that Triumphal Entry meant for those who were there and what it means for us today as we seek to commemorate, acknowledge and experience together "A Picture of Peace on Parade." Please read John 12:9-22 in preparation for this sermon and come ready to join together in community and proclaim, "Hosanna, blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!!!"

The Joy of the Blessed Hope

May 8, 2022 • Pastor Sandy Park • 1 Peter 1:3–9, John 19:27

Mother’s Day is a day of celebration, honor and love for the women in our lives who have nurtured, supported and cared for us physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. Mother’s Day is also a day full of reminders of unfulfilled dreams, fractured or absent relationships and grief and loss. Jesus understands the heartache that comes with motherhood. In his final act of love and care for his own grieving mother as he hung on the cross, he looked at the disciple John and declared that he would now be her son and she would be his mother. John 19:27 says, “And from that hour that disciple took her to his own home.” 1 Peter 1:3-9 reminds us that though we may experience various trials, we can walk in his joy because of the blessed hope we have in our resurrected Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, the one who comforts us in all of our troubles. Join us for a message of supernatural hope that springs eternal; the joy of our blessed hope!

The Joy of Communion

May 1, 2022 • Pastor Michael DiMarco

The first Sunday of every month, our church observes the Lord’s Supper; we take communion together as a congregation. Most of those Sundays, it’s inserted as a part of the worship service but for this service, join us for a whole service where we participate in this church ordinance through special music, message, and practice. You won't want to miss it!

The Prescription For a Weary World

April 24, 2022 • Pastor Michael DiMarco • Acts 1:1–11

What is something that you do when you are tired and weary? What kind of people do you surround yourself with (or avoid?) Take the temperature of world events, news, and social media and the diagnosis is clear: the world is weary. If you could prescribe one thing to treat the weariness of the world, what would it be? Would that prescription involve you? Listen in as Communications Pastor Michael DiMarco preaches from Acts chapter one and challenges us to be a part of God's prescription for a weary world!
