Merry Christmas! We hope with your friends and family you were able to form new holiday memories, even with the changes and health precautions of 2020. In this sermon we’re looking at journeys and the faith of sojourners. Journeys were a central part of the Christmas story. Before Jesus was born, his parents journeyed 90 miles or 150 kilometers from Nazareth to Bethlehem. And when Jesus turned one, his parents fled Bethlehem to the country of Egypt where they waited until it was safe, and then journeyed back to Galilee in Nazareth where Jesus grew up. Every year is really a journey by faith, with things to remember, things to forget, and things to anticipate in the year to come. So as we journey from 2020 to 2021, we’re going to look at Abraham’s journey of faith, how he found identity and perspective in God’s promises. Read Hebrews 11:1-16 as we get ready for this sermon!

Absolute Certainty In Great Uncertainty
Topical Sermons • April 4, 2021 • Pastor Ben Cross
We live in a time of heightened uncertainty. Articles abound suggesting ways to cope with these uncertainties, even to embrace them with a stiff upper lip as part of the evolutionary process. After all, that’s what the fittest do to survive, right? The Gospel provides an entirely different way to deal with life’s uncertainties—by embracing the absolute certainties afforded us through the resurrection of Jesus Christ. In this sermon, we will explore five such certainties that offer us peace, rest, hope, power, and enthusiasm in uncertain times.
Empowerment Through Discipleship
October 4, 2020 • Ron Whisler
Our speaker for this sermon is Ron Whisler, who, with his wife Jacqui, serve as Wycliffe Bible Translators in Indonesia. Ron will be sharing with us a great message about empowerment through discipleship. Here's a preview: Jesus was very intentional in calling the twelve disciples. He called them into relationship, creating a community where the disciples could be a part of Jesus’ mobile ministry team. Within this group, Jesus frequently quoted scripture and prayed with many different people. Jesus was a master at training twelve ordinary men, preparing them to be sent out, to lead their own ministry team. They too would quote scripture, pray for those around them, and be a part of God’s redemptive plan to reach all nations with the Good News of Jesus Christ. Within Jesus’ group, there was a sense of accountability and also comradery – a culture for learning, growing and changing the world.
