Current and Upcoming Sermons

May 27, 2018                                             Romans 13:8-10          "Love Fulfills the Law"                      Rev. Karen Nyhart                                                


“UNITED: Better Together” Summer Series starts June 3. 

Political polarization and issues of race and immigration make headlines.  The young and old don’t see things the same way.  News and social media often stress the differences between people. But Jesus brought people together and Christians in the early Church discovered that they had more in common than they expected.  God calls us to recognize that we are connected to each other. When we do, we also can discover that we can join our lives and our gifts together to make a difference in the world.   We are indeed “Better Together”.


June 3, 2018                                 Luke 19:1-9                   “LOOK: Really Seeing People”                             Dr. Michael Gardner 

June 10, 2018                               Matthew 19:13-21       “LISTEN: Hearing with the Heart”                       Dr. Michael Gardner

June 17, 2018, Father's Day      John 4:4-15                  “LEARN: Finding a New Way”                              Dr. Michael Gardner                                   

June 24, 2018                               Romans 15:1-7            “LINK ARMS: The Wide Welcome”                        Dr. Michael Gardner


“Influence” series begins July 1. 

During July, our worship services will share messages about the influence of significant people and experiences in our life of faith.  Each of our pastors will share their personal story, and our youth will talk about their summer mission experience and the influence it had on their faith, July 8. Dr. Gardner says, “Our lives are the product of those who have influenced us along the way.  I am who I am as a Christian because of those whose influence I still feel today. I feel like I am standing on giant shoulders.”

Join us for the “Influence” series each of the Sundays of July.

Join us for UNITED VBS 2018!

Meet us at Uncle Joe’s Comic Shop on June 11-14,  where the comic superheroes come to life straight from the pages of our favorite stories.  As the heroes meet each other, they’re ready for an all out battle, but find that something greater is waiting for them as they become UNITED.

Throughout the week, children and superheroes alike learn to LOOK at others who they perceive to be different from them in new ways: To LOOK at each person with value as a child of God,  LISTEN with the intensity that they want to be heard, LEARN about each other and where God might be calling them and finally, to LINK ARMS with one another as they combine their great strengths and passions toward one common goal.  What they end up finding out is that they actually have more that unites them than divides them.

I believe that God calls us to something similar, but first we need to recognize that we are connected to each other. What would our world look like if just like these superheroes, we came together, joined our gifts together and linked arms to right wrongs and seek out justice in the world while pointing the way towards God.

VBS is a center based, hands on learning environment full of people who are passionate for linking arms to point the way to God! We are indeed “Better Together”. Grab your cape and tights and we’ll see you there!


Finally, all of you, have unity of spirit, sympathy, love for one another, a tender heart, and a humble mind. 1 Peter 3:8
