Being Present in Hope

In this sermon, Pastor Wayne reflects on the true meaning of Advent/Christmas amidst the bustling holiday activities. While society celebrates with lights, decorations, and gift shopping, the church is reminded that Advent/Christmas is also a season of shadows, where darkness and struggles intensify. Drawing from Mark 13, Pastor Wayne emphasizes Jesus’ preparation of his disciples for difficult times, cautioning them about various challenges. However, the central message is one of hope – the assurance that Jesus has come, is continually…

Not One Stone

Our text this morning is Mark 13:1-8. Jesus informs the disciples that the Temple that they are admiring will be destroyed… not one stone will be left. And he was right. The Temple was destroyed in 70 C.E. Jesus also goes on to remind them that while there will be wars and disasters, no one should interpret them as a harbinger of the end of time. “No one knows, except the Father, when that time will come.” Join us as…

Everything She Had

Join us as we start a new series this morning: A Life That Matters. Our scripture this morning is Mark 12:38-44. It tells the story of the widow who gave everything that she had as an offering to the God. Some consider this to be an example of stewardship. Pastor Wayne contends it to be an act of commitment that she is all in when it comes to trusting God. One question for us this morning: Are we all in…

The World Turned Upside Down

Mark 10:2-16 describes a world turned upside down. We find that Jesus’ priorities are not our priorities. Join us as we worship together.

Talitha Cum

The healing stories that we find in Mark 5:21-43 talk about faith and its relation to healing. But what do these two stories about Jairus’ 12 year old daughter and the woman with hemorrhages tell us today? What do they say to the patient dying of a terrible disease who lived a life of great faith and service? What do they say to the parents of children at T.C. Thompson Children’s Hospital in Chattanooga or St. Jude’s in Memphis? 

Enduring the Storms

In our Gospel lesson for today, Mark 4:35-41, Jesus and his disciples are crossing the lake in a boat when a bad storm overtakes them. Jesus is asleep at the back of the boat when the disciples wake him, shouting “teacher, don’t you care that we are about to drown?” Jesus reacts by calling out “Peace. Be still!” and the lake becomes calm once again. And he asks them, “why are you frightened? Don’t you have faith yet?” Being a…

Growing Into The New Creation

What does it mean for us to grow into this new creation that Paul is speaking of in 2 Corinthians 5:6-17? What does the new creation have to do with the kin-dom of God that Jesus is speaking of in Mark 4:26-34? Join us for worship on this 3rd Sunday after Pentecost.

Being Renewed

Home, family, and renewal. What does it mean for Jesus? What does it mean for us? Mark 3:19-35 and 2 Corinthians 4:13-5:1 are the scriptures on this 2nd Sunday after Pentecost. We will share in Holy Communion, so go ahead and gather your juice and bread (whatever you have) so we can celebrate together. Please register your attendance by commenting below.

Easter 2021

Christ is risen!Christ is risen, indeed! Join us for our Easter worship service for 2021. It has been a long year and the protocols are still in effect. But we are worshipping together this year. There is still a long way to go, but we will get there together.
