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 4, 2024

Sermon: A Claim, A Challenge and a Charge

Scripture References: Luke 6:46-49

From Series: "Straight to the Heart"

Sometimes Jesus spoke in parables and sometimes he preached. While his parables can be hard to understand, his preaching is always clear, concise, and aimed straight at our hearts. Early in his ministry Jesus delivered a famous sermon to a crowd by the Sea of Galilee. In it he blessed the poor, pronounced woe on the rich, told us to love our enemies, stop judging others, bear good fruit, and build our house on the rock. It’s a heart-stopping sermon, and it’s all found in a single chapter of Luke. Join us this winter as we allow Jesus’s words in Luke 6 to challenge and encourage as we seek to follow him.
