Sermons on Isaiah

June 9: A House of What? (1/4)

  June 9: Third Sunday after Pentecost This is the first of a 4-week sermon series on prayer entitled, “No Higher Calling, No Greater Impact.” Most of us are so familiar with prayer that we hardly give it a second thought. At the same time, it’s probably something most of us don’t engage in enough, and when called upon to offer a prayer out loud in the presence of others, we become very uncomfortable. This series will address some of…

May 26: Celebrating the Trinity

  May 26 – Trinity Sunday Scriptures: Isaiah 6:1-8 and John 3:1-17 There’s a really funny Monty Python sketch I’d love to show you, but because it’s copyrighted, I’m not allowed to do so. So, instead I’ll read the script aloud, and I’m sure you’ll still get the humor—it’ll just be lacking the classic Monty Python delivery. A talk show called “How to Do It” comes into view. After the three hosts appear on screen, one of them welcomes the…

Dec 3: Our Shocking Hope

  December 3: First Sunday of Advent Scriptures: Isaiah 64:1-9; Mark 13:24-37 1 to 10, how well is your life unfolding these days, that is, in regard to your plans for your life? If the quality of your life experience is at a nine or ten and pretty much everything happening as you planned and designed, then praise God! Absolutely! You’ve got a lot to be thankful for in this regard. So, be sure to express your gratitude for a…

February 20: What Doesn’t Change

  This is the last in a 4-part sermon series called “Living Faithfully.” In this series, Pastor Drew will be addressing some of the deeper truths by which we profess our faith in and commitment to following Jesus Christ, even as our denomination faces the likelihood of separation later this coming summer. The theme for today’s message is the unchanging nature of God and the unchanging purpose of the church. Sermon #1 – January 30: “God’s Still in Charge!“ Sermon…

August 29: That Was Then, This Is Now

  This worship service was an opportunity to remember and celebrate the lives of those members of our congregation who passed away during the COVID-19 pandemic, when funerals and memorial services were not being held in churches, and funeral homes limited the number of guests who could attend. This service was designed to have the feel of a memorial service while still retaining its “Sunday worship” character. Scriptures: Isaiah 25:1, 6-9; Psalm 126; 2 Timothy 4:6-8, 17-18; John 20:19-22 I…

May 30: Does the Trinity Matter?

  Scriptures: Isaiah 6:1-8 and John 3:1-17 Raise your hand if you have a solid understanding of how to safely blast a rocket into outer space. Raise your hand if you’v e got a firm grasp on the detailed mechanics of a combustible engine (meaning, you could tear one down and rebuild it without the use of instructions). Who here would be able to explain to the rest of us exactly how the brain constructs what we see out of…
