Sunday: February 23, 2014

It's good to be back, though upon returning to the office today, I felt so far behind with all the work that needs to be done. Whenever I've been away, upon my return, I always feel like I need to visit 10 people, call 20, write 30, complete all sorts of administrative tasks, and prepare to preach & teach three times on Sunday, and so on and so forth. Perhaps you feel ...

Another Men's Retreat come and gone, another great time of solid teaching, recreation and fellowship. Thanks so much for the Men's Ministry team putting together the weekend. Hugh Whelchel, the former president of RTS-DC, was our speaker, and he gave us a solid framework to see how the work that we do has meaning in God's continuing story of redemption. As Luther said, "th...

As we keep truckin' through Matthew, we come to a very interesting passage this week.. One thing that makes it unique is that Matthew is the only Gospel which includes this exchange about whether Jesus pays the Temple tax, which is no surprise since Matthew was a tax collector in a previous life! It's also different because it tells about a miracle that we actually don't "...

So, I hear there's a big game today. People are making plans, breaking their normal routine, spending lots of money, and going to great lengths to make it a really fun night. Some are even suggesting we make Super Bowl Sunday a national holiday - though they really want Monday morning off so they can sleep in. But in the midst of all this celebration, there are people who ...

So, have you warmed up yet? I know some of you love the snow and cold, but there are some of us who are less enthusiastic about "winter weather." I hope you're "weathering" the cold okay -- if you do have any needs related to the extreme cold, please contact our Deacons for assistance. Also, it would probably be a good idea to join us for our first Fellowship Lunch of the ...

Wow, hard to believe its 2014. I've been so busy it just sort of arrived on my schedule without being too noticeable. That's not the case for this week's passage, Matthew 17:1-8, which shows us "The Transfiguration of Christ." The Transfiguration was such a stunning event. It was impossible not to notice. In fact, years and years later, the apostles were still talking abou...

Sermon Excerpt: 3 Types of Christians

Biblical commentator, Dan Doriani suggests that even though America is supposedly over 75% Christian, you can explain this phenomenon through 3 labels: 1) Cultural Christians, 2) Convenient Christians, and 3) Committed Christians. Cultural Christians are Christians in the sense that they check no other slot on the religion questionnaire. “We’re not Jewish...
