This Isn’t What I Expected

We dream. We make our plans. We prepare.  We check our GPS and chart our course. But sometimes life throws us a curve. Sometimes our work fails to provide the fulfillment we expected. Sometimes our dreams reach beyond that which is realistically possible. Sometimes God proves to be different than we expected. Every one of us knows disappointment like this. Christian faith provides no sanctuary from life’s disappointments. But it does offer strength and direction-- and most importantly hope--- when our life proves to be not what we expected.

Upcoming Sermon Series

Faith That Is Not In Vain

Easter is not a day.  It’s a turning point. Easter is the day we set aside to reflect on the day God set aside to breathe a permanent hope into human history. Easter is the day God set aside to reveal that the love of God is stronger than the powers of death.  The promise of the resurrection is not limited to life beyond the grave; the resurrection begins shaping our lives today. The Apostle Paul once wrote, If Christ has not been raised, then our proclamation has been in vain and your faith has been in vain. For the six Sunday’s following Easter , we will reflect on how and why faith is not in vain.
