How do you define a gift? From our childhood to this Christmas weekend, even if only in our minds, we will be judging what is a good gift or a lousy one. After receiving a pair of ugly boxers or stale fruitcake, what do we do with these unwanted gifts? Moreover, as we move from 2021 into a new year, how do we process the unwanted “gifts” of change, uncertainty, and loss? Listen in on this sermon as Michael DiMarco shares from his life and God’s Word how unwanted gifts help us grow to be more like the reason for the season, Jesus.

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!
