Sermons from March 2017

Mark 1:16-20; John 1:35-51 -- Andrew... The Friendliest Disciple You Don't Know

Rev. Richard Bodini - March 5, 2017

The season of Lent began this past Wednesday, Ash Wednesday. We enter into a season of remembering, reflecting, preparation, repentance as we anticipate Jesus’ death and resurrection. Take time to practice the disciplines of prayer, meditation, Scripture reading, and readiness for Jesus return. We also begin a new part in the faith story series. From now until Easter, we will look into the lives of some of Jesus’ disciples. Some are well known, others are not. Let’s learn and grow from their life with Jesus.


Matthew 27:1, 2, 11-18 -- Envy and Jesus' Death

Rev. Jack Vos - March 12, 2017

Why did Jesus die? We often give this answer, "He died for our sins." That's wonderfully true, and he's God's greatest gift! But the gospels go out of their way to point out the human factor in his suffering and death. Judas' greed played a role, as did Pilate's cowardice and the soldiers' brutalizing and humiliating him. This morning we'll look at the what the leaders  contributed, namely, envy. The message will explore a couple of reasons why God's Word points us to these human contributions.


Philippians 1:1-8 -- The Joy of God in Us

Rev. Harry Salomons - March 19, 2017


Luke 5:27-32 -- Follow Me

Rev. Richard Bodini - March 26, 2017

Matthew, or Levi, is one of the quiet disciples. We never hear his voice. We do however witness his response to Jesus invitation. Was Matthew considered righteous or a sinner? Is healthy or sick? Does Jesus’ invitation bring hope for the other tax collectors? Do they change their ways? What do we hear in Jesus invitation? What is your response?
