MORNING SERVICE SERMON SERIES

ENCOUNTERING THE RISEN JESUS

Human beings are fragile creatures.  Failure, grief, doubt, and rebellion are all woven into the fabric of human experience.  And yet, it is precisely in these places that the risen Jesus meets us and transforms us.  This is nowhere more obvious than in Jesus’s one-on-one encounters recorded in Scripture after his resurrection.  Join us in April and May as we encounter the risen Jesus and witness how his divine power is made perfect in our weakness.

  • April 7 – Encountering Jesus in Failure (John 21:1-14)
  • April 14 – Confirmation Sunday with the Rt. Rev. Steve Wood
  • April 21 – Encountering Jesus in Grief (Luke 24:13-35)
  • April 28 – Encountering Jesus in Doubt (John 20:24-29)
  • May 5 – Encountering Jesus in Rebellion  (Acts 9:1-22)

EVENING SERVICE SERMON SERIES

THE PARABLES OF JESUS: MARK CHAPTER 4

A good parable is a work of art, and Jesus used them constantly in his teaching about the Kingdom of God. The Gospel of Mark characterizes Jesus as a parable maker: ‘He did not say anything to them without using a parable’. He used these stories to promise, command, warn, forgive encourage, inform, condemn, argue and ultimately proclaim about the coming kingdom and how to live in light of it. Jesus’ teaching is as exciting and important today as it was in his own time, if we will listen. He said: ‘He who has ears to hear, let him hear’ (Mk 4:9). Join us on Sunday evenings as we explore the parables of Mark 4.

 

  • April 14 – Mark 4:1-20
  • April 21 – Mark 4:21-25
  • April 28 – Mark 4:26-34

RECENT SERMONS AND TALKS

Rev. Dr. John Yates III - February 26, 2023

Sermon: Learning to Lament

Scripture References: Psalms 102:1-28

From Series: "Songs of Sorrow and Hope"

How do I talk to God when I’m sad, angry or in despair? What do I say when I have no words? How do I pray when life is hard? These are questions we all wrestle with, and we often don’t know where to turn for help. Thankfully, the Bible isn’t silent on this matter. More than one third of the psalms are psalms of lament written in times of sorrow, sickness or fear. They are models for prayer that give voice to our pain, affirm the goodness of God and lead us ultimately to the suffering of Jesus for our salvation. Join us during the season of Lent as we learn to bring our heartache before God and to pray these songs of sorrow and hope.
