The Virgin Mother

The fact that Jesus was conceived in the power of the Holy Spirit by a virgin as incredible implications for this God-man who is the perfect intersection of heaven and earth. How Babies are Made Today we are going back to high school. To high school health class. To a topic that made the kids giggle. The topic that made me hang out in the library for a week because my mom exempted me from it. SEX ED. I’m guessing…

Wired for Relationship

While we might like to think we can live as an island or connect with God without being a part of a church, the truth is, we can’t. We were wired for connection by our Maker, because he is a relational God and so he made us for relationship. Message When people talk about being in relationships, we often jump to thoughts of romance, but everyone has a lot more non-romantic than romantic relationships. The question is, are all those…

Psalm 139

Kirk Irwin, a church elder, walks through this beautiful Psalm which depicts the intimate way God knows and cares for every single one of us.

Imprecatory Psalms

Jesus tells us to love our enemies, but in the Psalms, David prays for God to bash in the teeth of his enemies. How can we as Christians understand curses for one’s enemy as seen in the Imprecatory Psalms against the love that Jesus teaches? And how does this all fit with Vladimir Putin and the war in Ukraine? Message: Previously in our “Greatest Hits” series we have looked at one chapter of Psalms at a time. Today we will…

Psalm 119

Laws, decrees, precepts, ways, and commands are not something most of us love to talk about. But this Psalmist is different. He wrote the longest book of the Bible on this very topic. Why did he love God’s written word so much, and what does it mean for our lives today? And yes, Jesus plays a major role! Message: For the past several weeks we’ve been focusing on “Israel’s Greatest Hits” – the songbook of the Hebrew people – the…

Psalm 23

Our most beloved Psalm can only be properly understood through the eyes of a Shepherd. Listen to what David was teaching us about God’s provision, protection, and care through this amazing Psalm. Psalm 23 through a Shepherd’s Eyes Today we continue our “Greatest Hits” series by focusing on the most popular of all the psalms – Psalm 23. This psalm is beloved and memorized by millions of Christians even though very few people of our century know what ancient shepherding…

Psalm 8

“O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!” This song of David points to the glorious reputation of God. Unfortunately, God’s reputation is no longer what it was – but as followers of Jesus, we have an opportunity to re-build the God’s reputation with those all around us. Message Have you ever thought about how a single photo or image can instantly bring a certain person to your mind? The person’s name, achievements, and successes…

The Plagues

Many of us have heard the story of the plagues of Egypt but most of us miss what God is teaching the Israelites and the Egyptians about himself. More importantly, there are lessons for us today about who God is and how he relates to humanity. The Message The early chapters of Exodus read like an epic adventure; and today we begin the climax of the story – the final encounter between the hero and the villain, God and Pharaoh.…

God’s Sovereignty

Have you ever wondered what the Bible meant when it says that “God hardened Pharaoh’s heart”? In this message, we take a look at what that important phrase means in the Exodus story and how we can avoid having hard, stubborn hearts like Pharaoh. The Message Today we come to a slow-down in the action in the book of Exodus. Between where we ended last week (Exodus 6:12) and where we will pick up next week (Exodus 7:8), we read a…

Circumcision Matters

Some parts of the Bible are unsavory and some stories leave us scratching our head. Today’s story about God wanting to kill Moses right after calling him to lead the Israelites out of Egypt is one of those stories. And even stranger, the entire story is centered on circumcision. But with a surprise twist, looking at other parts of the Bible we see that God has always desired a “circumcision of the heart.” What does this mean? It means God…
