March 29th, 5th Sunday of Lent - Robbie Carnes preaching, “Living the Resurrection, Pressed to Give”; 2 Corinthians 4:1-12, Incarnational and sacrificial living are difficult and uncomfortable, yet they are the clearest way that we can live like Jesus and reveal the Gospel to the world. Just like olives that are the good fruit of the grafted branches and are pressed and crushed to make good oil, we should be looking for ways that Jesus is calling us to be pressed and crushed so that the Gospel is proclaimed in our living are a stark contrast to the faithfulness of Christ.
March 22th, 4th Sunday of Lent - Robbie Carnes Preaching, “Living the Resurrection: Given Peace, Being Peace (Makers)”; John 14:27; Matthew 5:9, Whatever warfare that we have engaged with God in is over at the cross. There is no more need for raving or conniving, Jesus offers us peace and reconciling. If we are to accept these things from our Savior and deny them to our neighbors and enemies, we may find that we have not yet truly accepted them for Jesus. The accepting and granting of peace go hand in hand.
January 26th, 3rd Sunday after Epiphany, 10:00am Combined Service & Congregational Meeting Robbie Carnes preaching, “Proverbs, Don't be that Guy: Chicken Little”; Proverbs 3:21-26, 2 Corinthians 4:7-12. If we were to base our understanding of our world on what newspapers, TV and radio tell us we would despair easily. But that is not who we are as followers of Jesus. Even though the earth shakes and the mountains fall into the sea we will not fear, because God has it all in his hands. Avoiding despair can be a great effort and we need truth of God’s Word and the love of God’s community to establish hope in our hearts.
