Go, Open Doors … to Communion with God

This week we continue on our Mission’s Months theme of “Go, Open Doors!” Today, Pastor Ken weaves Remembrance Day and our Monthly Communion Service into his message.  Scripture today is taken from John 1:1-14.


A note to our regular podcast subscribers – Due to technical difficulties, we are unable to bring you Pastor Ken’s messages from October 23rd and 30th.  Our church facilities were unavailable to us on November 6.  So there are no podcasts for those three weeks.

So, what’s your story?

Just prior to the start of today’s message, one of our young church members read from Scripture – John 9:1-27.  This is the story of the blind man. “…But I know one thing for sure: I was blind . . . I now see.” Starting from this story, Pastor Ken encourages us all to tell our own stories.

Breathe Deeply…you are here!

With the untimely passing of one of our church members, a Life Deacon and a close friend to the church, Pastor Ken is deviating from his sermon plan this week.  Today he looks at where we/you are – theologically and spiritually.  As we have just celebrated Easter and with the recent passing loved ones, we are left with many questions; not the least of which is how we grieve.  Pastor Ken has officiated and/or attended 3 funerals in the past eight days.  He has a fresh perspective on the subject.  Listen to the podcast to hear what he has to say.  Scripture for today’s message is taken from John 20:24-29 and 1 Thessalonians 4:13-16.

Hosanna – Emergency 911

Hosanna – your spiritual 911.  Whats’ your Hosanna? Can you think of one you have had recently? Can you think of one that’s coming? What do you want to be saved from? Using the image of Jesus riding into Jerusalem on the back of a donkey, today Pastor Ken looks into those questions and how or what we might do for God’s help. Scripture today is taken from Matthew 21, Mark 11, Luke 19 and John 12.
