The Priest's Manual: Wash Your Hands!

In the ancient world, cleanliness was a major, major deal. In fact, being clean, or being unclean, had a lot more social stigma and social consequences around it than in our culture where we all “wash our hands” after going the bathroom. And the best place to understand a bit more about the world of clean and unclean is in the book of Leviticus. Join us on Sunday morning at 9:30am as we probe the intersection of the book of Leviticus and the Gospel of Matthew.

The Priest's Manual: Sin Stinks!

Our sin needs to be dealt with. Each week, we deal with this corporately. We sing confession. We speak confession. We sit silently in confession. This shapes our worshipping life together. It’s not to make us feel terrible about ourselves. No! It’s so that we have a greater appreciation of and dependence upon God’s amazing and infinite grace. And this is why the book of Leviticus is so important for our worshipping life on Sunday mornings. Leviticus deals with sin – lots of sin! Join us on Sunday morning at 9:30am as we begin a new series of sermons on the book of Leviticus.

The Tolling Of The Bells

This morning is our annual “Tolling of the Bells” service. It's a Sunday when the faces of those who have joined the great cloud of witnesses are displayed on the screens and the bell tolls in honor of their life, their witness and their love of Jesus. We also light candles this morning in honor of those little lives who have gone through the waters of baptism and are reminded of the promises that their parents, along with each of us, have made. Join us for this special worship service of remembrance and celebration.

The Weight Of Waiting - Pursuing God

Did you know that wise men were not just part of the nativity crew? The wise men traveling from the east were not like grandparents coming to the hospital - you give them a call when you’re on your way, you keep in touch via text, you send them the text when their new grandchild is born and a half hour later they are at the hospital. No, these faithful followers pursued the infant Savior for years before offering gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. Join us on Sunday morning at 9:30am as we join them in pursuing God.

The Weight Of Waiting - Are We There Yet?

This morning the weight of waiting falls on the scruffy shepherds. And I can’t help but think that their waiting is something like a comment that every little kid has said at least ten million times while in the car. Every parent who has ever loaded up an SUV or mini-van and taken a road trip has heard those four familiar words – are we there yet? Join us on Sunday morning at 9:30am and then again for our candlelit Christmas Eve Service at 11pm to celebrate the waiting and the coming of our Savior.
