Sighing into Singing

Psalm 13:1-6

February 10, 2019 • Rev. Chad Brewer

How long, O Lord? Have you ever prayed that prayer? If so, you are not alone. King David knew what it felt like to pray and cry out and wonder what God was doing, or maybe what God wasn't doing. This Sunday Pastor Chad Brewer will be preaching on King David's prayer from Psalm 13. Take a few minutes to simply sit with this psalm, this prayer. Remind yourself that you are not alone when you pray "How long?", and more importantly, notice how King David concludes his prayer. His final words are hopeful in the midst of distress, and the same can be true for us today. I look forward to worshiping with you on Sunday! Pastor Adam

Making or Receiving a Name?

God Is

Exodus 3:1-15 • November 25, 2018 • Rev. Chad Brewer

The Burning Bush. It is a scene that always amazes me. A bush on fire, yet not consumed, and has the voice of God coming out of it! On this final Sunday of the church calendar year, prior to entering Advent in December, we have the honor of hearing Rev. Chad Brewer, RUF Campus Minister at UCI, preach to us from the burning bush story in Exodus 3:1-15. To prepare for Sunday's sermon spend 5-10 minutes reading, meditating, and praying though this text and try to focus your attention on the character and person of God. Who is God and how does he reveal himself to us in this story? I look forward to worshiping with you this Sunday! Pastor Adam

Finding the Glory of Jesus

Mark 10:35-45 • November 18, 2018 • Rev. Alex Watlington

"You do not know what you are asking?" Has someone ever said those words to you? Jesus said those words to two of his disciples, James and John, and easily would say it to us if we were to ask for the same thing. The conversation is recorded in the Gospel of Mark 10:35-45, as these two disciples want glory for themselves. Jesus reminds them that to be glorified, to be made great, first means to lay one's life down and become a slave of all. If that is what it means to be made great, do you want to that? This Sunday I am excited to welcome Rev. Alex Watlington, RUF Campus Minister at USC, back to preach his second sermon on the glory of Jesus Christ! To best prepare for this sermon, spend 5-10 minutes to read, meditate, and pray through the Gospel of Mark 10:35-45. As you do, reflect on how being first in life also means being a slave of all. I look forward to worshiping with you all this Sunday! Pastor Adam
