She Began to Serve

This morning, we continue in the first chapter of Mark’s Gospel. Simon takes Jesus and the disciples home for a meal following the Sabbath service where Jesus taught with authority and exorcised a demon from a man. As they arrive, Simon tells them that his mother-in-law is sick. Jesus, without hesitation, goes to the woman, takes her by the hand, and instantly she is healed of her illness. She then immediately begins to serve them. Join us this morning as Pastor Wayne…

Follow Me!

What was it about Jesus that attracted the disciples to the point that when he said, “follow me,” they dropped everything and followed him immediately? What prevents us from doing that today? Join us this morning as Pastor Wayne explores following Jesus on this third Sunday after the Epiphany.  Our scriptures are Jonah 3:1-5, 10; Psalm 62:5-12; and Mark 1:14-20.

Anything Good?

Our Scriptures on this 2nd Sunday after the Epiphany are 1 Samuel 3:1-10; Psalm 139:1-6, 13-18; and John 1:43-51. In the sermon, “Anything Good?” Pastor Wayne looks at the calling that we all recveive as followers of Christ. In a time when the Word of the Lord is rare, may we be open to God’s calling in our life.

For many of us, we stopped being Christmassy on December 26. However, the church celebrates the full 12 days of Christmastide that fall between December 25 and January 5 (Twelfth Night) with the Feast of the Epiphany on January 6 as the closing of the Christmas Season. For our Orthodox brothers and sisters, Epiphany IS…

Three Kings and a Savior

In today’s sermon, Pastor Wayne looks at the Epiphany text: Matthew 2:1-12. What  did the “three kings of (the) orient” see that the Jewish people who were desperately looking for a Messiah miss? How do we miss seeing the Savior in our midst?
