Sunday, December 18: The Light Breaks in: Peace (1 Kings 19:1-14)
h By Pastor Bill Flavin

This week we will start a new series called “The Light Breaks In” that will guide us through advent. In John 1 Jesus is described as the light that breaks into the darkness, that pushes back the darkness. Each week in this series we are going to look at places in our lives and scripture where Jesus breaks in, and pushes back darkness in unexpected ways, times and places. This week reflect on the unexpected peace God grants to the prophet Elijah in the midst of depression, anger, fear, and worry.

Sunday May 19: Nehemiah 4, “Who Said This Was Hard?”

After a few chapters of miraculous moves of God, Nehemiah and those in Jerusalem run into significant roadblocks. The people of Jerusalem model an approach to handling roadblocks and challenges, that is honest, prayerful, and laser focused on what God has asked of them.

Sunday May 12:  Nehemiah 3, “All In This Together”

Sunday May 12: Nehemiah 3, “All In This Together”

Nehemiah 3 is an interesting passage, sandwiched between chapters filled with actions, conflict and plot twists is a long list of names. In the 30+ verses filled with names, we get a reminder of God’s work through community. That in a world that can be focused on individuals, God’s work often occurs (and occurs best) through groups of people doing life together.

Sunday May 5:  “Secure in the Conquering Love of Christ”, Romans 8:31-39

Sunday May 5: “Secure in the Conquering Love of Christ”, Romans 8:31-39

Taking a break from the book of Nehemiah, the sermon will walk through how we are all looking for security, but how nothing in this world can provide us the security we long for. Sin has caused us to lose our security. God doesn’t leave us lost and searching, but rather offers us the love we long for in Christ. This is our ultimate security. Even though we can claim security in Christ, it is threatened by opposition. Yet, with the help of God’s Word, Spirit and Christian community, we’re able to remain secure in God’s love for us and share this with others. This is the greatest gift we’ve been given and the greatest gift we can share.
