Truth – Accept the Truth

Officially back from vacation this week, Pastor Ken finishes off the series on “Truth” which he started in August.  Today he begins with a little role play before looking at how truth and emotions interact.  The scripture for today’s message is taken from Luke 23:39-46 and Luke 24:36-48.

Sound Of Our World

Concluding our series on Spiritual Discernment, Pastor Ken challenges us to bring every part of our lives: body, soul, mind, heart and relationships into submission to God’s perfect and pleasing will. Even though we often can feel drowned in the sound from our world, Jesus Christ shows us and teaches us the power of spiritual discernment. Scripture this week is taken from Luke 14.

Christmas Personified – Our Human Hunger

Picking up his Advent theme again this week (our Children’s Christmas Play was last Sunday), Pastor Ken begin’s this installment of ‘Christmas Personified’ with a somewhat dark tale.

Christmas Personified – Angels Announced

For the second Sunday of Advent, Pastor Ken looks deeper into Christmas in the series entitled “Christmas Personified”.  Christmas is many things – a time for gift giving, a time to spend with friends and family, but Christmas is not just an event; Christmas is a person.  Ken helps us understand this by putting Christ back into Christmas.  Scripture is taken from Malachi 4, Matthew 1 and Luke 1, 2.
