Three Chords and the Truth (Chad Brekke 12/4/16)

Every year we hear from the crazy, bug eating, desert prophet, yelling about getting our act together or else! Just as there is no way to Easter except through Good Friday, there is no way to Christmas without this trip down to the river. So grab your backpack and your hiking boots, you do not want to miss this!

Scripture: Isaiah 11:1-10; Romans 15:4-13; Matthew 3:1-12

Song: "Prepare the Way" written by C. Hall & L. Giglio; performed by the Prince of Peace worship band

Prepare Him Room (Natalia Terfa 11/27/16)

Why do we do this every year? We know Jesus has come into the world, we know what he’s here to do, and we understand who he is. So why? Why do we keep waiting? Why do we spend time in this season of Advent each year, and what does it accomplish?

Scripture: Isaiah 2:3-5; Romans 13:11-12; Matthew 24:36-38,42-44

Song: "Psalm 130 (I Wait)" written by Robbie Seay; performed by the Prince of Peace worship band

A Cross Not To Love (Chad Brekke 11/20/16)

Just as we get set to start the countdown to Christmas next week with the first Sunday of Advent, the lectionary appears to have gone off the rails. Before the spotlight falls on the babe in the manger, it shines on the suffering messiah on the cross. Even so, what we are about to hear will do more to prepare us for Christmas than we can imagine.

Scriptures: Jeremiah 23:1-6; Luke 23:33-43

Song: "Jesus Paid It All" written by Alex Nifong, et al.; performed by the Prince of Peace worship band

Resurrection Life (Natalia Terfa 11/6/16)

It seems like there’s always something to be mad about. We get angry and fight about the smallest things. We like to be right. We like to KNOW things. But what if the Kingdom of God isn’t about knowing the right thing or believing the right thing or doing the right thing at all? What if being right isn’t…. right?

Scripture: Luke 20:27-38; Ephesians 1:11-23

Song: "No Longer Slaves" written by Brian Johnson, et al.; performed by the Prince of Peace worship band

Reforming the Tax Code (Chad Brekke 10/30/16)

Rather than jump to the customary scripture passages we usually hear on Reformation Sunday, today we will follow Zaccheus up the sycamore tree to get a better view of what being a reforming church looks like. What can we learn from this beloved character we first met in Sunday School?

Scripture: Jeremiah 31:31-34; Luke 19:1-10

Hold On (Natalia Terfa 10/16/16)

Both of the texts today are stories about people not letting go, not giving up, and holding on no matter what. Does this mean we’re supposed to bug God until we wear God down? Or maybe, is the story in Genesis and the story Jesus tells today trying to give us a deeper message?

Scripture: Genesis 32:22-31; Luke 18:1-8

Song: "You Never Let Go" written by Beth & Matt Redman; performed by the Prince of Peace worship band

Get Real (Natalia Terfa 10/2/16)

How many times have you answered the question “How are you?” with “good” even when it’s not exactly true? It’s the MN way. But what about when we’re falling apart? When we’re not “good”? What do we do then? What if church were a place where being real was just the way we are?

Scriptures: Psalm 133; Hebrews 10:22-25; Matthew 26:36-38
