Jesus is the Son of God, Friend of Sinners and our High Priest. Do you know what this means? In today’s message, Bruce preaches on the high priesthood of Christ and what this means for us as we continue our Lenten meditations on Jesus.
Bruce preaches on this Second Sunday in Lent. We are all sinners in need of God’s love. Jesus calls us his friends. What does it mean to be friends with Jesus? How are love and obedience connected for those who follow Christ? John 15:1-15
The Gospel Lesson: Mark 1:1-13
Bruce preaches as we begin the season of Lent. In Luke’s Gospel, Jesus tells us about exalting ourselves in comparison to humbling ourselves before God. The story He told about the Pharisee and tax collector invites us to take a closer look at ourselves.
Today’s sermon explores the transfiguration story and the importance of listening
to voice of Christ.
With this message Bruce concludes our month long series on faithful Christian stewardship. God calls us to be faithful stewards of all He has entrusted to our care…and to be honest with Him and ourselves when it comes to our service as baptized ministers of Christ.
Bruce shares his third message in this series on mature Christian stewardship. TheApostle Paul tells us that God loves a cheerful giver…and that we are to “make up our minds” when it comes to our gifts and offerings. God deserves more than leftovers!
II Corinthians 9:6-15

In our reading from II Corinthians, we learn how the Macedonian Christians were afflicted and stricken with poverty…yet they were known for their abundant joy, overflowing generosity and utmost eagerness in serving the Lord.
II Corinthians 8:1-9
