The Guest of Honor

Have you ever felt uncomfortable in a group setting? Maybe you weren’t sure who to talk to. Maybe you didn’t know where to sit. In Luke 14, Jesus celebrates an unexpected dinner guest before explaining his advice on seating arrangements. In a world of competitive social ladder climbing, listen to Jesus’ community changing advice.

Our current sermon series is titled “The Table: Turning Ordinary Meals into Sacred Moments.” In this series, we’ll walk through different moments of a meal, how it relates to the gospel, and how it invites us into everyday spiritual moments. We hope you’ll join us for the series, but also that you might be intentional about your meals beyond our service time.

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.
