The Redemption of Scrooge

Sundays, November 28 - December 19, 2021

Following the story of Scrooge's redemption, we see a picture of the redemption promised to each of us in Christ. Christ comes to break our heard hearts wide open to grace and joy as God redeems our past, present, and future. This Christmas, let us all travel from Bah! Humbug! to Merry Christmas one and all!

Once Upon A Time

January 6 - 27, 2019
The weather of winter - cold, dreary, snow, and dark - often affords us some great movie nights unlike the sunshine and daylight of summer months. In 2018 Mickey Mouse turned 90 years old and his impact and lessons have touched the lives of countless children and families. The movies of Disney have become classics for generations - with timeless lessons and values for us all. During January we will see the lessons of scripture lived out through Disney movies. 

Prepare the Way

December 2-23, 2018
Often times we get so focused on Christmas that we forget what it is to celebrate Advent. This sermon series invites you to prepare for Christmas by being fully involved in the preparation of your heart in Advent. We will explore the Way of Peace, the Way of Justice, the Way of Fearlessness and the Way of Faithfulness.

#struggles

October 14 - November 11, 2018
As you scroll through your day, does it feel like everyone else has it all together? Someone always has the best job, cutest kid, or happiest relationship. We're pressured to measure up to other people's social media status updates and left with more #struggles.

This five-week series studies what it's like to live a Christ-focused life in a selfie-centered world. Topics include finding compassion, authenticity, relationships, contentment, and rest.

Generations

Throughout this sermon series, and as we break ground on our new church building for God's people of all ages, we will explore the gifts, graces, and joys of each stage of life.

The Real Christmas Story

December 3-24, 2017
We all have our favorite Christmas movies, the ones we watch year after year - movies that bring friends and families together, that inspire us, and that make us laugh. And sometimes, they remind us of what Christmas is all about - the timeless story of hope and joy and love - the birth of a child.
