Daring Faith Sermon Series
Jan

to Feb 11

Daring Faith Sermon Series

We have a bold, robust, and resilient faith—grounded in the transforming grace of God. We have a Daring Faith.

In Christmas, we celebrated the Daring Grace of God that we witnessed in God stepping out of Heaven and becoming fully human and fully divine in Jesus Christ. It is because of God’s grace that we have the gift of faith. We know this faith because it is grounded in the life-changing, world transforming grace of God, and it is bold, robust, and resilient. In Daring Faith, we talk about living our faith “out loud” by responding to God’s calling, growing in our giftedness—saying “yes” to God’s grace sending us out into life to be the hands and feet of Jesus.

Hudson also briefly explores the lives and thoughts of 4 significant characters in the Christmas story, encouraging readers to immerse themselves in the dramatic story. His simple approach provides a doable daily practice and gently leads readers to discover how they can open their hearts and lives more generously to God.

Daring Grace
Nov

to Dec 25

Daring Grace

Our consumer economy has hijacked Christmas. 

While we love made-for-TV movies, food, family and gifts, Christmas is about so much more. It is a conspiracy - a revolutionary act by God to ultimately undermine the power of sin and darkness in human history. In God’s work of Daring Grace, God risked taking on human form so that we could know the power of a love that can change the world and transform our lives. Beginning Nov. 26, we will recall God’s willingness to hear us in our greatest times of darkness, step into the fragile times of life with us, and give us the strength to live with Daring Grace.

 Why? A Small Group Study with Pastor Chris

Why? A Small Group Study with Pastor Chris

Often, when people come to the church, they have questions. Those questions can range from details about why certain churches do what they do and other questions have major implications about for what we believe. In this six week series, we are going to talk about the 6 common questions people have as they get involved in the life of the church:

  • Why Jesus?
  • Why Church?
  • Why Communion?
  • Why Baptism?
  • Why United Methodist?
  • Why the Bible? 

At the end of the study, my hope is that the people who attend the class will have a deeper understanding of the basic tenets of their faith and how they relate to their lives.

Living Rich Sermon Series

When we think of being rich, so much of our imagination is drawn to the things we own and the money that we have, or the money we wish we had. Living rich has to do with so much more than our assets, bank accounts and net worth. It has to do with how we acknowledge just how wealthy we are each and every day and how we can live lives that are committed to serving something greater than ourselves.
