Like Riding A Bike (Chad Brekke 1/21/18)

Simon and Andrew always upgraded when the new smartphones came out. They liked things to happen fast! We also tend to like things to happen immediately. Let’s drop what we’re doing and tag along.

Call And Response (Natalia Terfa 1/14/18)

One week after we heard about the baptism of Jesus and saw our young people affirm their baptisms, we are reminded that we too have been called. Each and every one of us. What then is our response to this call? Do we say “here I am Lord” as Samuel does? Do we invite others to “come and see” as Nathaniel was himself invited?

Faith Stories (read by Brent Haglund 1/7/18)

Confirmation is not a graduation from church or faith. It is an invitation to a deeper and more meaingful involvement in the life of the church, the life of faith. Hear these powerful stories of faith from those students being confirmed...

What Kind Of Blessing? (Chad Brekke 12/31/17)

What if being sealed by the Holy Spirit and marked with the cross of Christ forever gets you into trouble? Today an old man holds the child Jesus in his arms and gives a blessing that causes great concern for Mary and Joseph. Are you sure you want to be blessed by God?

Scripture: Isaiah 61:10-62:3; Galatians 4:4-7; Luke 2:22-40

God With Us (Chad Brekke & Natalia Terfa)

People say it is supposed to be a time of joy and happiness... of love and good cheer... and we hope that's exactly the kind of Christmas you're having. But it's hard sometimes, we know. You may even feel surrounded by darkness. If your Christmas includes some uncertainty, or some grief or even some fear, you are not alone. You share this holy night with shepherds and angels and Mary and Joseph and people all over the world who find themselves in some kind of darkness. And we are here, all of us, together. "Do not be afraid, for see I bring you news of great joy. For unto you is born in the City of David a savior." So a light shines even in your darkness. And nothing shall overcome this Light.

Song: "God with Us" written by J. Ingram & L. Jordan; performed by the Prince of Peace worship band

Total Eclipse (Chad Brekke 12/3/17)

Should the world consider the coming of the Lord as a promise or a threat? This past year has been filled with unspeakable violence and suffering throughout the world, including in the United States. As we enter the season of Advent, the themes of darkness and light will lead us all the way to the Christ child in Bethlehem. And a promise.

Scripture: Isaiah 64:1-9; Mark 13:24-37

A King And A Kingdom (Natalia Terfa 11/26/17)

On this Christ the King Sunday, we celebrate the kingship of Jesus. What does it mean that Jesus is King? Jesus tells the final parable of Matthew’s 25th chapter, a well known parable about dividing sheep and goats into categories of in and out, good and bad. What does this mean for us today? And are we sheep or goats?

Scripture: Ephesians 1:15-23; Matthew 25:31-46

Ask The Pastors (10:30am 11/19/17)

A few times a year, we depart from our usual preaching schedule and hand over the mic to… you… so you can ask any and all questions pertaining to faith, community, theology… And we see what happens. We adjust the usual format of our worship service in order to leave as much time as possible for our pastors to respond to our questions—and we are always left wanting more!

Song: "O Come To The Altar" written by C. Brown, M. Brock, et al.; performed by the Prince of Peace worship band

Always a Bridesmaid (Natalia Terfa 11/12/17)

We heard a sermon in August about the time between expectation and hope. We find ourselves in this same place again in our readings today. As we await the arrival of Christ, what does our preparation look like? What does it mean to wait for something yet coming, but still being present in the here and now?

Scripture: Amos 5:18-24; Matthew 25:1-13
