Love (Honest Advent)

Love (Honest Advent)

December 4, 2022

Our daily lives are filled with transactions. From going to work to buying our groceries, we know that in order to get something, we first have to give something. We tend to assume our relationship with God functions the same way: If we give God what God wants, then God will give us what we want. But the birth of Jesus shows us very clearly that that’s not at all what God’s love is like. In today’s sermon, we’ll explore what God’s love is really like and the powerful difference it makes in our lives and in our world. Join us as we continue our series, “Honest Advent.”

Vulnerability

Vulnerability

November 27, 2022

All of us experience times of fear, or pain, or loss that leave us feeling vulnerable. And, as people of faith, we often ask God to take our vulnerabilities away. Sometimes that happens, but other times it doesn’t. So how can we find hope and faith in times of vulnerability? That’s the question we’ll explore as we start our new series, ‘Honest Advent.’

Handling Conflict

Handling Conflict

November 20, 2022

Conflict is an unavoidable reality in nearly every arena of life. At home, at work, at school, on social media, at the Thanksgiving table…conflicts of various kinds continue to arise. So, as followers of Jesus, how should we handle conflict? How can we respond to conflict in constructive ways that reflect the love of God rather than the divisive spirit of our culture? We’ll consider these questions and more in today’s sermon. Don’t miss the conclusion of our series, “Division and Unity.”

Dealing with Division

Dealing with Division

November 13, 2022

In many parts of our society, division is on the rise and the church has not been immune. In fact, Kindred’s denomination, the United Methodist Church, is undergoing a division right now. So as followers of Jesus, how are we called to respond to all of this division in the world and in the church? That’s the question we’ll consider in today’s sermon as we begin a new, two-part series, “Division and Unity.”

World Turned Upside Down

World Turned Upside Down

November 6, 2022

We tend to think of saints (if we think of them at all) as contemplative, angelic, long-dead people with halos on their heads. But according to Jesus, saints are actually radical revolutionaries determined to turn the world upside down. And as we’ll see in today’s sermon, Jesus calls you to roll up your sleeves right where you are and join the movement. Don’t miss our celebration of All Saints Sunday.

Is Church Worth It?

Is Church Worth It?

October 30, 2022

If we’re honest, church can be hard. It takes time. It takes energy. It takes money. So sometimes we might wonder, ‘Is it really worth it?’ As it turns out, people of faith have been asking that question for thousands of years. And God knows this is something we wonder about. So in today’s sermon, we’re looking at one powerful way that God answers this question for us. Join us for the finale of our series, “Arise! Shine!” and find out why church really is worth it after all.

It’s Not Just For You

It’s Not Just For You

October 23, 2022

As people of faith, we often give thanks to God for the resources we’ve been given. But we sometimes forget that our resources aren’t only for us. In today’s sermon we’ll explore God’s call to use what we’ve been given for the benefit of others. We’ll learn about the difference it makes when God’s generosity flows, not just to us, but through us. Don’t miss this third part of our series, “Arise! Shine!”

Provide Abundantly

Provide Abundantly

October 16, 2022

Conversations in the church about generosity can make some of us feel excluded, especially if we’re already worried that we don’t have enough. But in today’s sermon we’ll see that God invites us into a kind of generosity that includes all of us, even when we feel like we don’t have much to give. Join us for this second part of our series “Arise! Shine!” as we explore this inclusive kind of generosity in a helpful, practical way.

Dream Big

Dream Big

October 9, 2022

Looking back over our lives, we can often recognize that God was doing more in certain moments than we could see at that time. In today’s sermon we’ll explore God’s invitation to trust that the same is true right now, and we’ll consider God’s encouragement to dream big and to get ready for a future we can’t fully see yet. Join us as we kick off our new series “Arise! Shine!”

Jesus Includes the Marginalized

Jesus Includes the Marginalized

October 2, 2022

Have you ever been told that you’re not welcome in church because of your demographic or your community? Have you ever been told that you’re outside of God’s love because of how you identify? Tragically, Christians have often been guilty of marginalizing and excluding entire social groups, sometimes citing certain verses of Scripture for justification. But as we’ll explore in today’s sermon, Jesus rejects this kind of exclusion and the weaponization of Scripture that empowers it. Instead, Jesus shows us a better way. Join us as we conclude our series, ‘Inclusive Like Jesus.’
