Sermon Series: Recognizing Jesus

Join us on Sunday mornings during August and September as Pastor Karl offers a sermon series on the Gospel of Matthew. 

How often do our daily circumstances turn our attention away from Christ who is already present in our midst?  How often has our attention been so focused on that which was not Christ we missed Him altogether?  Tribulations can hide Him from our view, as can instances of good fortune; and, yes, even our practices of doing church can become so central to our focus that we don’t see Jesus at all.  This sermon series will examine the Gospel of Matthew, and offer us the opportunity to open our eyes and recognize Jesus in our midst – regardless of our circumstances.

Sunday worship services are at 8:30 and 11:00 a.m.*

Sermon Series: “When in Rome…”

Join us on Sunday mornings this summer as Pastor Karl offers a sermon series on the Book of Romans.  We live in a society where forces from without and within call for our allegiance.  As we struggle against the temptations of this world, how can we stay true to our calling to follow Christ?  This sermon series will examine Paul’s teachings for the Christians in 1st century Rome, and look at how his directives are relevant to believers in 21st century America.

Sunday worship services are at 8:30 and 11:00 a.m.*
