Rest and Remember
(Please note, Pastor Troy's ear microphone dies with about 6:30 left in the video. You can still catch the rest of the audio if you turn up your volume!)
 
A decreasing number of people attend worship services every week. A growing number of people never attend worship services at all. Why is that? Many people assume worship is something they have to do for God, one more task they need to check off the to-do list. And in a world where we're constantly pursuing rest, doing more work doesn't sound overly attractive. And yet, when we see God's command to worship, we're reminded that he doesn't want us to do something for him in worship. He wants to do something for us! Not to work, but to rest! To rest, and remember!

    Part of the Family (Holy Trinity Sunday)
    For some people, being adopted into a loving, caring family makes all the difference for their life and their future. Whether you realize it or not, you've also been adopted into a loving, caring family...the family of God! And on this Holy Trinity Sunday, where we examine and marvel at the unfathomable nature of our Triune God, we'll see why being a part of God's family changes everything!

    Arise! (Ascension/Pentecost Sermonettes)
    On Ascension, Jesus rises up back into Heaven. At Pentecost, the Holy Spirit comes down on God's people. What do both of these events have to do with us today, and how do they equip and empower Christians to arise and carry out the work God has given to his Church?

    The Ideal Mother/Wife/Woman
    What makes an ideal mother? Or wife? Or woman? How the world answers that question, and how God answers that question are very different! Let's dig into God's Word from Proverbs 31:10-31 to see how God answers that question, for this celebration of Godly Women!

    The Beauty of Being Sheep
    If someone tells you, "You're a sheep" these days, it's usually more derogatory than complimentary. There's even a term "sheeple" for people who follow someone or something blindly, without giving it deeper examination or thought. But today, on Good Shepherd Sunday, Jesus reminds us of the beauty of being sheep. Not because sheep are all that great, but because sheep have a Shepherd!

    I’ll Believe It When I Hear It
    These days, people are skeptical of fake news and other false ideas that get passed off as truth. So it's not surprising that many people demand, "I'll believe it when I see it." However, God's Word today shows us that sometimes, seeing isn't believing. When it comes to our faith in Jesus, rather than saying, "I'll believe it when I see it!" we can confidently say, "I'll believe it when I hear it!"

    Peace to Breathe
    When you're feeling overwhelmed by things like fear, shame, or confusion, it can start to feel like you're getting choked out by life. That's how Jesus' disciples were feeling on Easter Sunday evening. But then the risen Jesus appeared to them! And what was the first thing he said to them? "Peace be with you." It was more than just a polite greeting. It was a revelation of what he'd come to give them! And because of Jesus' resurrection, you can have that same peace too!

    Certain Is Better! (Easter Sunday)
    It's better to be certain than "pretty sure." Unfortunately, the things we put our hope in are often less than certain--more of a desire or a wish than a certainty. And yet, there is one thing that is certain, and one thing that can give us certain hope, even in uncertain times! Watch Pastor Troy's Easter Sunday sermon, "Certain Is Better" to find out what that is!

    What does it take for you to make a good meal a great meal? On Maundy Thursday, we look at two special meals that God insitituted for his people to eat: The Passover Meal, and the Lord's Supper, so we can see how God takes a good meal, and makes it even better!
