Sunday’s Sermon Focuses on How Money Can’t Buy Peace

by sgrimm

On Sunday, November 12, we continue to explore the topic of how money can’t buy the true treasures in life.

Yes, it is nice to have things that money can buy. But from time to time, we need to stop and check to see if we have the things that money can’t buy, like love, gratitude, hope, generosity, peace, integrity, and meaning.

This week, Rev. David J. Hanna will deliver the sermon “Money Can’t Buy: Peace.”

We look forward to seeing you on Sunday!

by sgrimm

This Sunday at 11:00 a.m. a new sermon series will be introduced – “Money Can’t Buy” and the Sacrament of Holy Communion will be served.

Rev. David J. Hanna will deliver the sermon “Money Can’t Buy: We Know.”

We know because God is God, because steadfast love is steadfast love, because Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and always – we can place our trust, our assurance, our confidence in God, and not in earthly things, not in temporary stuff. There’s a difference between being possessed by possessions and using our possessions for God and good.

Sunday, October 22, Sermon Focuses on How Faith Cures Our Blindness

by sgrimm

We look forward to worshipping with you this Sunday at 11:00 a.m.    We will hear the final sermon in the series “Time” along with the fine musical contributions from our Chancel Choir.

Seminarian Ben Fitzgerald-Fye will deliver the sermon “Time: Perspective.”

Jesus healing others is a pretty common event  in Scripture and giving sight to the blind is also not uncommon.  In Mark’s Gospel; however, blindness is used as a metaphor for spiritual blindness.  Mark may be using it as a critique of the disciples themselves and their “not getting it.”  What about us?  What about our spiritual blindness?  Jesus healing our blindness is a gift of new, faithful, perspective…a new way of seeing the world around us.  Faith cures our blindness.
