Lent 2019 - series graphic.jpg

Jesus’ parable of the Pharisee and the tax collector calls us to see ourselves the way God does and to repent of our sins. Repentance literally means to change your mind and allow God to have his way in your life. We repent by first humbly admitting our sin to God and by asking his forgiveness. And so, our repentance must be sincere and recognize God’s mercy. As a result, God changes us from the inside-out. Listen as John Yeatts (Pastor Emeritus) shares how we can repent of our sins and cultivate God’s life in us.

Ash Wednesday 2019

Sermon Title: You Are Going To Die
Scripture Reading: Genesis 3:19; Ecclesiastes 7:2; John 3:16

Ash Wed 2019.jpg

Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent. Imposing ashes on the forehead is an ancient tradition going back to the first few centuries of the Church. It’s both a sobering and subversive liturgical practice to consider that one day we are going to die. What happens then? Also, what are we doing with the life we’ve been given? Listen as Pastor David invites us to reflect upon the meaning of Ash Wednesday, before we receive the ashes symbolizing our own mortality, our need for God, and our need to repent of our sins.

God is Coming (2 of 4)

Sermon Series: God is Coming | Advent 2018
Sermon Title: Signs of Peace
Scripture Reading: Malachi 3:1-4; Luke 1:68-79; Philippians 3:1-4; Luke 3:1-6

Advent 2018.jpg

As we look around the world today, it’s clear that we’re lacking the peace of the Kingdom. And it’s easy to say the reason for that is because of this thing or that person, but Advent calls us to look within ourselves and repent of our own sins. In Signs of Peace (2 of 4), Pastor David shares about what was going on in the prophet Malachi’s day for him to proclaim the coming of the messenger, the one who precedes Christ.
