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. Jason Palacio - January 29, 2024

Evening Sermon: Strangers in the World

Scripture References: 1 Peter 2:11-25

From Series: "Stranger in the World"

There are many ways to answer the question, “Who are you?” We might speak in terms of our family, our race, where we are from, where we went to school, or our profession. Our answer reveals what we think is important in our life and determines the way that we live. But how does God want us to think about ourselves? What is a Christian’s self-identity? The letter of 1 Peter is a brief yet very clear summary of the identity of those who follow Jesus. It contains the instructions and encouragement Christians need to know who they are on the journey to heaven as they face suffering along the way. Again and again, Peter shows us the victory that Jesus accomplished through suffering. It was his suffering that recovers our identity and restores our purpose in this life, while securing an eternal living hope. We can take comfort knowing that our suffering identifies us as those who belong to God’s story.
