God’s Promise to Abraham

This week we hear God’s promise to Abram (who will soon become Abraham) at a time when it seems Abram’s been waiting forever for it to come true and circumstances make it seem impossible. Listen as Pastor Kate explores the ways God provides answers and hope when we are faced with the disappointment of empty promises in our lives today.

Accompanying Scripture:
Genesis 15:1-6, Luke 3:8

Times of Trial

“God doesn’t give us more than we can handle.” It’s a go-to saying for many when we’re unsure of how to help soothe a friend or family member in distress. Listen as Pastor Kate dives into that phrase and the request that we ask of God, to “save us from the time of trial,” in the Lord’s prayer.

Be Brave

After Job loses everything and then is blessed by God, it almost seems as if the rest of his life is lived happily ever after. But that just doesn’t seem to be the way the world works. Pastor Kate explores the notion of happily ever after in the aftermath of tragedy and our call to be brave.

Job 42:1-17

A Shift in Perspective

For a few weeks now, we’ve been following the story of Job and the cosmic bet between God and the Satan that placed Job in the middle. We’ve heard how his life was destroyed and everything he had, his house, possessions, and family are lost and the aftermath of that as Job contends with his grief. This week, Job confronts God and asks for an accounting, and God responds. Listen as Pastor Kate explores how God’s answer has the potential for a change of perspective. 

Accompanying Scripture:
Job 31:35-37, 38:1-11, John 1: 1-5

A Cosmic Wager

This Sunday we began a sermon series on the book of Job, which highlights the story of a man who is completely righteous, loves God, and does everything right but loses everything. What starts as a cosmic bet between God and Satan ends with an exchange between God and Job, giving voice to our frustration with the brokenness of our world. Listen as Pastor Kate explores why God even agrees to this bet and what it means for us today.

Job 1:1-22, Luke 6: 46-49

Gifts of the Spirit

This week we celebrated the day of Pentecost when the whole church was together, gifted with the Holy Spirit, and suddenly able to hear each other even though they spoke different languages. Listen as Pastor Kate explores the way the spirit is at work in and around us, uniting us during the divisive times we find ourselves experiencing today.

Accompanying Scripture:
Acts 2:1-4, 1 Corinthians 12:1-13, Mark 1: 4-8

Peter Heals in Jerusalem

This week we hear stories of God’s healing powers in Jerusalem and Gennesaret. Sometimes, though, the physical healing isn’t the only miracle that happens. Listen as Pastor Kate explores the ways God is at work today, healing us, making us whole and uniting us as one people in community with each other and God.

Acts 3: 1-10, Mark 6: 53-56
