2017-2018 Sermon Series
The sermon series for Advent is entitled, “Sing of His Birth.” For centuries, composers have been inspired by the incarnation of Jesus Christ for their musical compositions. Each Sunday, we will highlight a particular carol and the story behind it in the bulletin. Enjoy, and make sure you add your own voice to the chorus that is singing of His birth!
Winter Sermon Series
Renewal of Baptism—We begin 2018 with an opportunity to renew our baptismal vows. The first Sunday of the year is known as “Baptism of the Lord” in the liturgical calendar. It has become a tradition here to give the congregation on opportunity to renew their baptismal vows. The baptismal reaffirmation liturgy includes the opportunity to respond to the following questions:
Join us in the new year with a re-commitment to being a lifelong disciple of Jesus Christ!
Character Sketches—On January 14, we begin a five-week series looking at different “characters” from the Old Testament. These ordinary men and women were confronted with situations that tested their faith, and we can learn much from their example. Watch the bulletin each week to learn more about each character!
2016-17 Sermon Series: Becoming A Disciple of Jesus
Once we are introduced to him, we spend the rest of our lives becoming a disciple of Jesus. This year’s sermon series is comprised of several steps to facilitate the discipleship process. Each month or season, a different step is introduced. Usually one Sunday of the month will focus on a key Christian belief to THINK about, one on an ACTion to do, and one on a way to BE. Interspersed periodically are also opportunities to EXPERIENCE and SERVE God in meaningful ways.
Our topics are selected from the “Believe” series by Randy Frazee. The congregation is invited to purchase an age-appropriate Believe resource from the Wisdom Well bookstore, and follow along with their own devotions on the topic introduced.

2015-2016 Sermon Series: The Bible In 100 Words
Click here to download all the 100 words, supporting Scriptures and bulletin inserts that were used during the 2015-2016 series for worship and discipleship!
Though God’s Word is divided into an Old and New Testament, with many different kinds of writings not always arranged chronologically, it is still a unified story of God’s relationship with His people. It also is a “salvation history,” where we can learn not only God’s intentions for how we should live, but the wonderful way He rescues us from our sinfulness with the gift of His Son, our Savior, Jesus Christ. We can see throughout the Bible that this was God’s plan from the beginning, with the people of the Old Testament demonstrating so clearly our need for God’s grace and redemption.
We’ve chosen 50 two-word phrases to try to convey in a memorable way the story of God’s Word, and each Sunday we’ll look at the Scripture passage that tells that part of the story. To cover the Bible during the appropriate times of the church year, we’re beginning the series in August. Look for a bookmark with all 100 words, and plan to join us each Sunday as we explore God’s word together!
2014-2015 Sermon Series: Passport To The Kingdom
Throughout the year, we highlighted the physical and spiritual places that were introduced in the sermon text each week. Each Sunday, we included a handout that provided in depth information about the place, its significance, and often how we can apply the lessons learned there to our own lives.
