Peace In Pieces - Peace If Possible

Don’t you just watch the news, attend the meeting, go out with friends, talk on the phone with your sister and end up feeling, “Can’t we all just get along?!” Seriously, can’t we all just get along? For the last six weeks, we’ve been in a series of sermons searching after peace. Peace in pieces, knowing that life is complicated and the pursuit of peace is really a never-ending journey with two steps forward and one step back. Join us on Sunday morning at 9:30am as we finish that series of sermons with a verse of Scripture that is both curious and comforting.

Peace In Pieces - As For Me And My House

Hanging in the laundry room bathroom off of the den right above the toilet at my best friend, Doug Fox’s, house was a sign that read, “choose this day whom ye will serve, but as for and my house, we will serve the Lord.” My guess is that many of you have seen or perhaps even have a similar plaque or sign in your house. They are words from the tail end of the book of Joshua. A banner over one’s home. A declaration of allegiance. A pledge of space and place. In our homes. Join us on Sunday morning at 9:30am as we seek peace in our homes.

Peace In Pieces - Gezoontight

One of the most holy parts of being a pastor is walking alongside folks who find themselves journeying through the valley of the shadow of death. Sometimes this is a welcomed gift. Other times it is unexpected and gut-wrenching. Each and every one of us has dealt with the loss of a loved one. Maybe last month. Maybe last year. Maybe many years ago. But all of us have searched for peace in the midst of death. Join us on Sunday morning at 9:30am as we search for peace in the midst of loss.

Peace In Pieces - When God Doesn't Heal

Karen. Alice. Celeste. Ralph. What do these people have in common? All loved. All beloved sons and daughters of God. All are on our prayer line right now. And all are enduring some form of physical pain and suffering. Most have cancer. Some are recovering from surgery. All are in need of our prayer. And we pray for them - daily, asking that God would heal them. But what about when God doesn't heal, or at least heal in the way we thought God would heal? What about then? Join us on Sunday morning at 9:30am as we look to the Word of God for hope and comfort when God doesn't heal.

Peace In Pieces - Terrorism & Trusting

By the power of the Holy Spirit, we are united to our brothers and sisters in places like Syria and Afghanistan and North Korea. And since we are united to them, we are also reminded of the unthinkable suffering and devastating destruction in those places. Maybe it’s just me, but I think we can almost become numb to it all. The violence. The wars. The rumors of war. The senseless slaughtering of women and children. The displacing of millions of people. Preventable diseases. Sometimes it’s so bad that I turn off the evening news because I just don’t want my kids to see it all. Join us on Sunday morning at 9:30am as we prayerfully seek peace in the midst of global chaos in the Word and in worship.
