Sermon: Expect the End of the World

Kyle Nolan

Sermon     Ash Wednesday Lent
Wednesday, March 6, 2019

"See, now is an acceptable time; see, now is a day of salvation!” In the frenzy of our daily lives, the urgency of Paul’s invitation to be reconciled to God can strike us as odd, intrusive even. There is so much to do…can’t that wait? Ash Wednesday is an invitation to intrusion, to stillness, and most of all to freedom. It’s a reminder of the fragile, precious passage of our lives. Join us at 7pm for a traditional service of the Imposition of Ashes — an ancient rite of repentance and preparation for our long lenten pilgrimage to the cross.

He Goes Before You…

Rev. Chandler Stokes

Sermon     Worship Easter Lent
Sunday, April 5, 2015

This Sunday is Easter Sunday, when we celebrate the Resurrection of the Lord. Rev. Stokes will be preaching on Mark 16:1-8: "He goes before you..." The resurrection is not only behind us but before us. Love has transformed the world. The choir will offer "Let the People Praise Thee, O God" by William Mathias and two pieces from Handel's Messiah, including the Hallelujah Chorus.

Sermon     Worship Lent
Sunday, March 22, 2015

“Knowing" is part of the language of covenant in Scripture; “knowing” communicates an intimate sense of God’s love. And to be known is an extraordinary thing, especially when it comes to God’s knowledge of us—because that knowing is always accompanied by love.

Trusting the Fire

Rev. Chandler Stokes

Sermon     Lent Ash Wednesday
Wednesday, March 5, 2014

A sermon by Rev. Chandler Stokes on Matthew 7:15–20 on Ash Wednesday. “Lent can be a dangerous time. People come to the church looking for discipline and a new way to live; they come to be challenged—prepared for the heartache and joy of the cross to come. The problem with Lent, however, is a direct outgrowth of this urgency: we contain the season to six weeks of doing good, rather than building a Lent that becomes a life.” ―Maryetta Anschutz (For this service, the lighting in our sanctuary was dimmed for ambiance, hence why the resulting video looks so dark.)
