A Celebration of Unity and Clarity

Pastor Joel Leyrer - Unity Sunday - Sunday, September 11, 2022

Text: 1 Peter 2:9-10

Watch Service Video | Sermon Podcast

Dear Friends in Christ, This is always a special service and a special Sunday. However, for reasons needing no explanation, the last couple of years were different. We retained the name and held a Unity Sunday on the second Sunday in September – just as we’ve been doing since the year 2000 – but we observed it according to our regular three-services-a-weekend schedule. Which kind of defeated the purpose.

Dear Friends in Christ, We are now in the home stretch of our summer sermon series on the twelve minor prophets. Three left. With this last trio we enter into a new timeframe and a new kind of message emphasis. Today’s prophet is the first of this new breed. His name is Haggai, and under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit he wrote a short little two chapter book that bares his name.

Pastor Joel Leyrer - The Eighth Sunday After Pentecost - Sunday, July 31, 2022

Text: Nahum 1:12-15

Watch Service Video

Dear Friends in Christ, We’ve now reached the halfway point in our summer sermon series on the minor prophets. Six down, and including today, six to go. One of the things we’ve learned thus far is just how little personal information we’re given about these men of God.

Jonah: A Story of God's Compassion

Pastor Joel Leyrer - The Sixth Sunday After Pentecost - Sunday, July 17, 2022

Text: Jonah 1:17-2:10

Watch Service Video

Dear Friends in Christ, If you were to play a word association game and say the name “Jonah,” most people – even those who know (or care) little about the Bible – would instantly reply with the word “whale” (in Hebrew, “big fish”). That one event pretty much sums up the working knowledge many have of this book.

Text: John 16:12-15

Watch Service Video

Dear Friends in Christ, When someone says, “I believe in God,” they are, on the surface, making a statement of personal faith. At the same time, they are also making a statement open to a lot of interpretation.

Radiancy of Glory and Bliss Beyond Compare

Pastor Joel Leyrer - The Sixth Sunday of Easter - Sunday, May 22, 2022

Text: Revelation 21:21-27

Watch Service Video

Dear Friends in Christ, This is now the third time in the last four Sundays that our readings from the Book of Revelation deal directly with the subject of heaven. Since our sermons for the Easter season are based on these readings, that means we’re on heaven sermon #3. But that’s okay. I am confident none of us will develop a case of heaven fatigue. Just the opposite, actually. For Christians this is a topic that never gets old or that we can ever talk about too much.
