Speak the Truth

God’s kingdom is founded on truth. If we believe that our faith is true, then we should be committed to speaking truth to one another. How can we commit to truth today? The sermon text comes from Ephesians 4:14-25.

This is the second sermon in our series, The Kin-dom of God. No, it’s not a typo. The Gospels frequently have to explain that the kingdom of God is like because we can’t see past our own political expectations. In this series, we are going to hear how God creates a diverse, new kin in Christ that breaks down the dividing walls between different tribes and parties. In a season of political divisions, choose to live in God’s healing kin-dom.

Exploring Faith and Science

2020 has reminded many of us about the importance of science. Church communities, however, have not always been welcoming to science. But this need not be, and should not be. In our sermon series, Exploring Faith and Science, we explore a better way of exploring faith and science together.

In the series, we explore the relationship of faith and science, bias, curiosity, doubt, awe, healing, and creativity.
