John 1: 1-5—Bios vs Zōē Life
February 11, 2024

Mike Eppel takes over this morning, preaching on the first verses of John. He discusses the Greek words “βίος,” or “bios,” meaning organic life, and “ζωή/ζωός” or “zōē/zōos,” meaning spiritual life. John takes these concepts that the Greeks understand and puts them into the context of Christ. Humans can’t survive without bios, but nor can […]

Love’s Awakening—Song of Solomon 1: 1-7

Pastor Paul takes on an odd passage for this week; the Song of Solomon, a form of love poetry in the Bible. He discusses the passion behind this scripture, and how it applies to our own love of Christ and of others. 1 Solomon’s Song of Songs. 2 Let him kiss me with the kisses of his […]

The Towel of Babel—Genesis 11: 1-9
January 29, 2024

All Good Things — 3 John: 5-8
December 31, 2023

Pastor Paul discusses how we, as a church family, must mimic that of what John’s friend, Gaius, put forth in his community; to invite strangers into our church, to accept and love them, and to provide support to outsiders.  “Dear friend, you are faithful in what you are doing for the brothers and sisters,[a] even though […]

Christmas Eve Service – Luke 2:1-20
December 26, 2023

Pastor Paul preaches on Luke 2:1-20, explaining the profound impact that the birth of Jesus had on the known world in the first century. It was an event that left a faithful virgin in wonder, a band of wise men seeking, and a worldly king enraged and afraid of the prospect of a rival king. […]

December 4, 2023

Be Ready – Luke 12:35-40
November 27, 2023
