Good Friday
Encountering Jesus
- Sermon Series

April 19, 2019

Speaker: Pastor Carla Olsen Draper

Scripture: John 19:1-30

On Good Friday the ways of God stand in stark contrast to the ways of humanity.  On this day the mystery of God’s wondrous love and power are displayed and suffering and death.  We will never fully understand the crucifixion but understanding is not the purpose of the day. On Good Friday we gather as God’s people to stand in awe and horror, in wonder and gratitude at the foot of the cross. 

Join us as we reflect on Jesus’ passion and gather around His table to remember and receive the gracious gifts he won for us on the cross.

A Less Cluttered Life

Sermon Info

Speaker: Pastor Ian Trigg

November 21 & 22, 2015

Scriputre: Ephesians 5:8-20

I had an appointment at the mall the other day and I immediately felt overwhelmed as I stepped into it with the reality that Christmas is coming faster than a speeding train!  I found myself feeling overwhelmed with everything I have to do.  The bigger problem with that is that, so often, my soul feels cluttered with demands and expectations and needs and desires.   Most of us are far too familiar with this reality.  So many voices demanding a response.  So much work to be done.  So many people to see.  And sometimes we seem to be terribly under resourced to meet all the expectations.  What do we do?  How do we live?  Well, this isn't just a 2015 issue, thankfully!  Paul, writing to the church in Ephesus, had remarkable insight into the cluttered life and how we can best find peace and hope in the midst of it all.  This weekend, as we'll gather around the Lord's table, we'll be wonderfully encouraged and inspired to fully embrace this amazing gift called life!
