Skeletons from the Closet

We can walk through valley cuz we’ve been with Jesus on the mountain

We aren't following a politician, philosopher, great artist or superhero.  We are following the Son of God.  More than that, we are following the one who died for us, hugged us in baptism and forgives us all our sins.  Knowing that, we can rise up and not be afraid.  we can love others and give to others.  God is with us.  We will be ok.

don’t curse the darkness, light it up!

Jesus says, "YOU are the light of the world.  YOU are the salt of the Earth!"  People need you!  Don't worry, you got Jesus!

only those who got nothing - get everything in Jesus Christ!  Only those who know they are nothing because of sin and death get blessed completely with Forgiveness and Eternal life!  Jesus came to raise the dead, not help them.

do you really want Jesus to reign?

As we welcome a new president we take comfort in knowing that no matter what we have been brought into God's KIngdom in Jesus Christ!  Although we say we would love to have Jesus as our King, even our president, do we really mean it?  This year we mourn the darkness that began with the legalization of murder for babies antime during pregnancy.  People who are for abortion like to say "keep you laws off my body", yet we say the same thing to God when we would rather follow our own desires than His.  May we repent and find comfort in the KIng who came not to serve but be served, even take away ALL of our sins! Jesus!

So Jesus rocks, so what? What does that have to do with me? Baptism!

What does Jesus death and resurrection have to do with me? how do I do I know His victory over sin and death is mine? how do i know that I too will rise again?  Listen and find out!

Christmas Cantata

December 17, 2016

Is there a crazy man yelling ‘repent’ in your manger scene?

Christmas time is a time for repentance.  Jesus was born because we stink!  John the Baptist scares us so that we can hear the Angel speak - Do not be afraid!
