Advent 2018.jpg

In the first century, the Roman empire ruled the world. And the virgin Mary believed that the annunciation by the angel Gabriel meant that everything was about to change, for the God of love was fulfilling his covenant promises through Jesus. In Signs of Love (4 of 4), Pastor David invites us to follow the example of Mary so that we might be conduits of God's love and grace to a world longing for liberation.

Scripture Reading: Zephaniah 3:14-20; John 16:16-23

Advent 2018.jpg

It is entirely understandable that we experience sadness in a world that has yet to be released from sin and its bondage to decay. The Christmas season can be especially difficult for many people. However, Jesus said that in the midst of our sorrow we can know a joy that isn't dependent upon circumstance. In Signs of Joy (3 of 4), Pastor Kelly shares how we can know God's joy and why we should do things just because we enjoy them.

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.

Sermon Series: God is Coming | Advent 2018
Sermon Title:
Signs of Hope
Scripture Reading: Jeremiah 33:14-16; Psalm 25:1-10; Luke 21:25-36

Advent 2018.jpg

Advent begins in the darkness and invites us to see our great need for redemption and deliverance--our need for the light. It is there that we wait in anticipation for the Messiah. And it is there that we can already see the signs of his coming. In Signs of Hope (1 of 4), Pastor David helps us to see that there is good reason to believe that the long winter will come to an end, for the snow is melting and the kingdom of God is sprouting leaves.
