Ash Wednesday: Worship in the Wilderness

In the Book of Exodus, Moses demands that Pharaoh let the Hebrew people go worship their God in the wilderness for three days. The wilderness is a place where things struggle to survive. So why would you choose to worship in the wilderness? For Ash Wednesday, we invite you to leave normal life behind and join us for a time in worshipping the God who turns the wilderness into gardens.

The Divine Embrace

We’re often afraid to try and restore broken relationships with our coworkers, neighbors, friends, and family. When we avoid our broken relationships, we also avoid glimpses at the divine embrace, where God brings healing and hope. This week, we read about the moment Esau and Jacob meet each other 20 years after their relationship was broken by deception. Join us as we listen for how God calls us to the transformative work of reconciliation.

Transformation and Time Apart

Are you looking for healing in a relationship in your life?…

The Point of No Return

There are pivotal moments that shape a relationship for better or worse. In Genesis 27, Jacob’s deception fractured his relationship with his brother and changed the the next two decades of their lives.

We’ve Got History

Today's sermon is the start of a new sermon series, “Sibling Rivalry.” In a world of broken and dysfunctional relationships, we look to Esau and Jacob for understanding how problems emerge and for what seeing God in the midst reconciliation can look like.
