When Love Speaks: Seven Last Words from the Cross

As Christ hung suspended between heaven and earth, suffering on the cross in your place, He spoke seven times. For centuries, these words have shaped and focused Christians as we meditate on the meaning of Christ’s death for us. These words reveal His humanity as He cries out in thirst and His divinity as He announces absolution, the forgiveness of sin.

Join us on Sunday mornings beginning February 22nd in worship as our sermons focus our thoughts on the meaning of Christ’s crucifixion for us using His own words to shape our meditation. Come hear what love sounds like as Christ speaks to you from His cross.

February 22 – Words of Forgiveness based on Luke 23:27-37

Current Sermons

Right now we are between sermon series. Instead, we are preaching from the historic lectionary that has been used by Christians for centuries. During this season of Epiphany, those readings focus on the early ministry of Christ Jesus. Please check out the individual sermons from Pastor Krueger, Pastor Dan, and Pastor Andy under the media link above. (If you hover your cursor of the word “sermon” who will see each pastor’s name listed out to go directly to their sermon page.)

Advent Sermons

The church year in the West begins with a preparatory season called “Advent.” The word “advent” comes from the Latin word adventus, which means “appearing” or “coming,” referring to the appearing of a great king or even a god. In Christian usage, it refers to the appearing of Jesus Christ in two ways—His first appearing as the Child born of the Virgin Mary and His second appearing in glory on the Last Day to judge the living and the dead. You see, Advent isn’t only about getting ready for Christmas; it’s also about getting ready for Jesus’ final appearing in glory only the Last Day.

Radical Sayings of Jesus

Oh, no! He didn’t really say that? What in the world did Jesus mean when He said …?

No one challenges us like Jesus! His words jolt us to see our world our God and ourselves in new ways!

The First Person You Meet

First impressions make lasting impressions.

As Jesus instructs you through His parables, the first person you meet in the parable is often the key person of the story. Having heard the teachings of Christ, you are to go out to love your neighbor as the first person you meet, making a lasting impression on them with God’s love.

Join us for our sermon series,
“The First Person You Meet”
this summer as we take the teachings of Christ and apply them to daily life.

The Spirit Never Sleeps

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you,
and you will be my witnesses…
” Acts 1:8

Jesus promised the gift of the Holy Spirit would come
to teach and remind people of all things Jesus said and did
(John 14:26)

Is the Spirit at work today?
How do we recognize it?

During this Easter season we will travel through the book of Acts in our preaching series to hear how the Spirit worked through the first disciples: igniting people’s hearts into faith and celebration, witness and acts of service. The same Spirit that worked through Paul’s message and the same Spirit that settled as tongues of fire on the disciples heads is the same Spirit that works in you as you receive God’s gifts each morning. It is the same power that is delivered when you share God’s love with those around you.

Join us Sunday mornings April 27 to June 15 to hear how the Spirit Never Sleeps!
