Sunday’s message: With the beginning of the Season in Lent, we are reminded of the difficult decisions that we are confronted with, from time to time.

This Sunday we read Matthew 4:1-11 and learn how Jesus dealt with difficult decisions in his life. Lent is a golden opportunity to review our past and make good choices in our faithful living. 8:30 am worship service bulletin 11 am...

Sunday’s message: “Be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect,” taught Jesus. Perfection. Is anyone of us there yet? Sometimes the teachings of Jesus can be so difficult to follow, and seemingly, out of reach for all of us. “Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,” Jesus instructed. How can we love others with the perfect love of Christ? Is it humanly possible? This Sunday we explore these seemingly impossible commands in Jesus’ teaching from Matthew 5:43-48. 8:30 am worship service bulletin 11 am worship...

Sunday’s message: Jesus begins his ministry in Galilee, where he grew up — but also where the prophet Isaiah prophesied that the people would come out of exile, out of darkness into light, over 700 years before. The Gospel Matthew is concerned with linking Jesus to the prophetic spirit — to bring Good News. And Jesus calls up regular, ordinary people, to live into a new dream for God’s people.Though they have walked in darkness, they will see a great light. 8:30 am worship service bulletin 11 am worship service...
