Is Your God BIG Enough…..

Sermon Series

Have you missed a recent Sunday morning worship?  Click here to listen to past sermons in this series.

…to Exceed Your Grasp
Science does not nullify a biblical view of God.  It actually elaborates for us, in terms of the material universe, what we mean when we say God.  

…to Expose Your Blind Spots  
According to Scripture, the problem with our understanding of God is that we make God over into our own image…and “God” conveniently thinks and sees just like we do.  

…to Envelop Your Doubt
Doubt is not threatening to God…honest doubt keeps us awake to the possibility of God, a sign that we will not settle for a false god…or for a god that fits our preconceptions and personal preferences.

…to Encompass Your Experience (Feb 19)
    The God of the Bible is known in and through the experiences of this life even as God is understood as no less above and beyond.  Experience of our humanity does not take us beyond God but deeper into a  knowledge of God.

…to Know Your Name (Feb 26)
Is your God big enough to get small, to get personal?      Perhaps this may be the biggest challenge for us if we     are to have and truthful knowledge of God.  






    All Are Welcome

    All Are Welcome

    What to expect when you join us

    Our Sunday Worship Service is at 10 am.

    What to expect when you join us on Sunday morning-
    Our service tends toward what most folks would consider traditional, with hymns and the accompaniment of our beautiful organ or piano.  We’re a congregation that loves to sing and we are often led in learning new songs by our choir.  Each time we gather, we strive to generate a worship service that honors God, nurtures faith, relates to everyday life — and inspires hope.

    Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of every month. We believe the Communion Table is not ours, but Christ’s, and so it is open to all.

    Following worship we always gather for fellowship and refreshments.  We enjoy getting to know visitors, and it’s a great time to find out who we are, what we are all about.

    Please, come and join us!
