On the Road

Sunday, November 25th, 2007

With this sermon, we’ll have an opportunity to get to know our new Minister of Congregational Care, Melody Merida. She shares both the story of her own faith journey, and the vision God has called her to with Jesus MCC, especially with children’s and family ministry.

When Everything Gets Scrambled

Sunday, November 18th, 2007

Life is funny. One minute you’re walking down the road, your world all neatly ordered, everything in place, then *bam* something happens, and it feels like suddenly, everything is scrambled.

As you probably know, we announced this week that Julie Benson has resigned from her position as Minister of Worship, effective January 6.

This is a big change for our church — and change hurts. It’s really annoying when God takes something that is working so beautifully and shakes it up.

How should a person of faith respond in times of seismic change — whether that change is taking place in our church or in our personal lives? How should we respond?

Mind Over Matter

Sunday, November 11th, 2007

Are you generally a positive or a negative person? Do your thoughts lift you up, or drag you down?

Our thoughts shape our life. How we interpret a situation depends as much on what’s happening in our heads, as what is happening out there in the objective world.

But it’s so easy to allow our thoughts to run wild and to spiral downward into negativity. In this sermon, we look at how — with God’s help — we can take control of out thoughts and words, and harness their power to create a new and better life.

Born to Be a Champion

Sunday, November 4th, 2007

You were born to be a champion.

When you hear stuff like that, how do you react? Do your eyes roll with cynicism? Or can you embrace it?

Last week’s sermon looked at who we are — one of God’s dear ones, uniquely created in God’s image. This sermon looks at what we’re here to do.

You are not surplus. You are here for a unique, God-given purpose.
