  4. Sermon by Rev. Richard Rhoades for Aug. 11, 2019

    “Do We Really Want The Kingdom to Come?" - As christians, we are called to Iive in God’s kingdom that He freely wants to give. But, the kingdom of God is radically different than any worldly, man-made kingdom of power. When we pray the Lord’s prayer, we say the words “Thy kingdom come.”, but those words imply that we open our hearts and minds to live out or daily lives the way Jesus showed us. And Jesus said if we want to follow Him, we must take up our cross. So we are called INTO the struggle to live the love of God. Look at what is happening in your neighborhoods and see how you can help bring the kingdom of God into existence.

  5. Back Pew: August 7, 2019

    This week's Gospel reading from Luke 12:32 - [Jesus said:] “Do not be afraid, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom. Sell your possessions, and give alms. Make purses for yourselves that do not wear out, an unfailing treasure in heaven, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." This is what we will be talking about this weekend at worship service! See you Saturday at 5:30pm or Sunday at 10:00am
