"What are we missing?"

As a people of faith, however, God tells us that He has—through His gift of grace, the life given to us in our baptisms, and through the gift of faith—filled our lives with great purpose and meaning, no matter how menial our place, position, or work may seem.

"Finding Our Purpose"

As a people of faith, however, God tells us that He has—through His gift of grace, the life given to us in our baptisms, and through the gift of faith—filled our lives with great purpose and meaning, no matter how menial our place, position, or work may seem.

"Do You Know What You Need?"

The command to us is simple: Pray.  But what does it mean when our prayers seem to come back to us empty?  Is God really listening?  Is he even there?  Is what we percieve as the response from God really what he is telling us?  This sermon explores these questions and ultimately encourages us to trust in the promise of God who encourages us to shamelessly lay our prayers at Jesus feet.

"2 + 2 = 5"

The wolrd works in certain ways.  It pushes and pulls us and we can almost predict the good and bad that will come our way.  But the promise of God...and his interaction with our world in the life-giving work of Jesus...is that God has given us something different, better, and unexpected.

Speaker: Pastor Mark Schulze
Date: July 3, 2016

 


"I Wonder Where the Wonder Went"

We all get overcome by the things of life.  Then, in a flash, we become like the posessed man in Luke 8 and forget who we are.  Today we are reminded of the mind of God our Father, who seeks us out amidst the wilderness of our world, to restore the wonder of our faith in his promise that we are indeed heirs of his grace.

"You're the Man!"

Sounds good doesn't it?  But when Nathan confronts David with this line, it is anything but positive.  We are the ones who deserve death and hell, and yet God lovingly restores us and gives to us his forgiveness in life.  Who does Jesus love?  You're the one!

Speaker: Pastor Mark Schulze
Date: June 12, 2016

 


"The Fashion of Compassion"

How does Jesus love us?  He has literally "put us on" in clothing himself in our humanity so that he could save us from the death and sin that has so entangled our existence.  This is the fashion of His compassion - that he has put on our death, that we might be clothed with His life.

Speaker: Pastor Mark Schulze
Date: June 1, 2016

 


"Dirty Feet"

We all want a cause to believe in, to defend, worth fighting for. But sometimes when you dig in your heels, all you really get is dirty feet. The readings and message today aren't about a defensive love…but one that proactively reaches out to all, breaking down barriers, tearing down walls. Today is about a Savior who brings us together, washes the dust from our feet, and the sends us out for his purpose.

Speaker: Pastor Mark Schulze

Inconceivable (Trinity Sunday)

We celebrate our God: Creator, Redeemer, Sanctifier. The mysterious and yet marvelous expression of our God as ONE and yet THREE is cornerstone to the Christian confession of the “who” and the “what” of God the Father, Jesus, God the Son, and The Holy Spirit connect, work relate and work together. The Trinity is hard to get our mind around. But, the Trinity is also nothing less than the complete expression of God’s love and grace worked out for and among and with you and me.

Speaker: Pastor Mark Schulze
Date: May 22, 2016

 


Stuck Together

This is the Sunday of Pentecost.
This is when the separation in the world between all peoples, and the separation between all peoples and God, is undone as God pours out His Spirit on the world so that we might know our God and be brought into relationship with Him.
