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.

Peace In Pieces - Anxiety Issues

We live in a world full of anxiety. While I certainly do not claim to be an expert in mental health, I am a pretty good student when it comes to understanding the contours of your life and my life. And I know, because you’ve told me, that things like anxiety, stress, and worry plague your life. And they plague mine. Whether it’s the health of a son, the school of a granddaughter, the project at work, the idea of the future...I could go on, but you get my point. Join us on Sunday morning at 9:30am as we explore what the Bible has to say about anxiety and how we might be able to experience a piece of peace.

Peace In Pieces - The Last Words

This morning we start a new series of sermons. A series on peace. Perhaps more than anything else, peace is what we long for until we can experience heaven. Peace sitting in the oncologist’s office. Peace in times of war and rumors of war. Peace from the internal anxiety and worries that bog us down. And peace in the midst of relationships. We’re calling this series of sermons “Peace in Pieces," and it begins on Sunday morning at 9:30am with the last words for 400 years!
