Christmas 2020 Monologue

We replace the sermon with something we call the “theatrical monologue.” This year, Pastor Bryan Wilkerson retold the story from the perspective of Luke, one of the authors of the…

In the Bleak Midwinter

We all have expectations for how our days, our life, or Christmas will go. But what do we do when things turn out to be less than perfect? In this Christmas message for Advent 2020, Pastor Leah Knight Breton answers questions like, Is God still working in my imperfect and messy life? Is there any hope for Christmas 2020?

Song of Silence

How can I find comfort and joy in a season of isolation and stillness? Why is silence so uncomfortable? What opportunities does silence present?

Building Gospel Bridges

There is a deep correlation between our relationship with God and our relationship with others. In this sermon from Nikki Toyama-Szeto, Executive Director of Christians for Social Action, we learn how working for justice is the “gospel bridge” that we need to build with our neighbors and a watching world. Justice and evangelism go hand in hand because today, people do not assume that God is good. Justice is the demonstration that our God is a good God. Christ’s Church…
