  2. Who Is Your Neighbor?

    Sermon by Rev. Rhoades
    The story of the “Good Samaritan” is not only a good teaching story about love and mercy for others, but it is special in that it lifts up a deeper concern that addresses what faith really is. Faith in God is not about checking off things to do but (attending church, praying, etc) but rather it shows that faith is a way of living. The story reveals to us an integration of who we are and who God is. Are we, like King David, seeking to live after God’s own heart? (CC - Closed Captioned)

  6. Live Into Being Loved By God

    All of us struggle with our doubts and misunderstandings. None of us has this all figured out - we struggle with the idea of faith and scurry around into our own rabbit holes of darkness. We miss knowing that we are loved by God and nothing can change that. And in that love of God, we are freed and transformed to go out and love…and help others to know God’s unfailing love for them, too. (Rev. Rhoades's sermon for Trinity Sunday is CC - Closed Captioned)
