    Exodus: Journey To Freedom – Do Not Be Afraid
    Good morning and welcome to worship! Today we continue our current sermon series, Exodus: Journey to Freedom by looking at yet another popular passage in Scripture. Our story today teaches us many things about who God is, what God can do, and what God promises us. The Hebrew people were stuck between a rock and a hard place when they found themselves sandwiched between the Red Sea and a sea of soldiers armed, angry, and ready to wipe them out. Can you imagine what the Hebrew people were feeling in these moments when certain destrucon seemed so imminent? They had to be terrified! Have you ever felt this way? I bet you have. We all have found ourselves stuck between a rock and a hard place, terrified! So, let’s step into today’s story, stand alongside the Hebrew people on the shores of the Red Sea, and see how we too can cope, confidently, with our fear.

    Summer of Psalms: All Things?
    Good morning and welcome to worship! Today, we begin our new sermon series, Summer of Psalms. The Psalms are some of the most amazing, raw, and real expressions of the heart. These cries and desires of the heart often reflect people who are trying their best to make sense of the human  condition, trying with all their might and mind to understand why pain is a part of life. Psalm 44 is one such expression and this particular psalmist is not alone. Each one of us has had a Psalm 44 moment. So, this morning let's join the psalmist; let's reach out for the ever rising and rescuing, unfailing love of God!

    EARTH, WIND, and FIRE: FIRE
    Welcome to worship. We’re so glad you’re here as wwrap up our current sermon series on the Holy Spirit,
    Earth, Wind, and Fire. This morning we are going to explore fire, what is is, why it’s biblically significant, and how it relates to the power and presence of God. My prayer for us is that we will really feel the heat of the Spirit today as we move nearer to the heart of God. I pray our hearts will catch on fire for loving God and loving others. And I pray we will continue to be a people who “catch on fire with enthusiasm so people will come from miles to watch us burn!”

    Earth, Wind, and Fire: WIND
    Good morning and welcome to worship! This morning we continue our current sermon series on the Holy
    Spirit called Earth, Wind, and Fire. Last week wcontemplated the profound mystery of the Trinity, reaffirming our belief that there is One God who exists in three persons (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit). We also considered the ways the Holy Spirit moves throughout the earth and celebrated the amazing reality that the Holy Spirit dwells in us, making us earthly temples of God. Today, we will explore the Biblical, symbolic, and spiritual significance of the Holy Spirit as the Wind, the breath, the breeze of God. My prayer for us is that the Holy Spirit, as Wind, will carry us away in the love and power of God.

    EARTH, WIND, and FIRE
    This morning worship might look and sound a little different because it is Pentecost. We’ve added a few musical elements to worship that have a revival feel to them. This morning, you might feel like tapping your foot. You might be taken back to the days of your youth. You may be moved to sing, “give me that old time religion.” Today, we also begin our new sermon series, Earth, Wind, and Fire, which is a series on the Holy Spirit. This is especially fitting since today we do celebrate the day the Holy Spirit was poured out upon Jesus’ disciples ten days after he ascended into heaven. Immediately after Pentecost, the Holy Spirit moved the disciples to boldly proclaim the good newthat there is forgiveness of sins and eternal life in Christ. This movement of the Spirit created momentum, which resulted in thousands of people coming to faith in JesuChrist. Today, let’s continue to live in, learn from, and listen to the Holy Spirit so that we too can have a global impact.

    Define Church: Prayer
    Today we conclude our sermon series, Define: Church, which is based upon Acts 2:43, “They devoted themselves to the Apostles’ teaching, to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread, and to prayer.” This morning we're going to explore what it meant for the early Church to devote themselves to prayer. What is prayer, anyway? Why is it important? What should we be praying for? How often should we pray? Does prayer really work? These are the types of questions we will examine; and I pray we will walk away with a little more understanding about what it means for us to devote ourselves to prayer.

    Define Church: Breaking Bread
    Today we continue our sermon series, Define: Church. The early Church devoted themselves to a few powerful things, as we’ve seen these past few weeks. One thing they devoted themselves to was “the breaking of bread,” which may seem so inconsequential, but really was so meaningful. On a number of different levels, ranging from the basic to the profound, “the breaking of bread” was transformative for the first century believers; and this same practice remains the same for us today, when we take time to remember this is literally an essential of the bread and butter of our faith.
