Spring Cleaning: How to Love (April 22nd, 2018)

During this Easter season, we are examining our hearts in light of Jesus’ resurrection. We are discovering what spring cleaning needs to be done within us, so we can fully experience the resurrection life we receive from God. Today’s readings also focus on Jesus as our Good Shepherd. Pastor Paige highlights the sacrificial love of the good shepherd in Psalm 23 and John 10:11-18. Jesus, the one who lays down his life for the sheep, shows us how to love. In this sermon, Pastor Paige explores how we can love the people in our daily lives with the good shepherd’s selfless love.

Spring Cleaning: Renovating Our Lives (April 15th, 2018)

Spring is when we think about getting our cars washed and our houses cleaned. But what about the cleaning that needs to happen in our hearts, minds, and lives? Are there messes in your soul? Is there so much clutter in your mind that you can’t focus on what really matters? In today’s reading from Acts 3:12-19, the Apostle Peter tells a crowd about the power of Jesus. He is the one who can clean and reorder our hearts, minds, and lives.

Seven Last Words (March 30th, 2018)

This year’s Good Friday observance is a Seven Last Words service. As the final statements of Jesus from the Cross are read and reflected upon, candles are extinguished to reflect the dying of the Light of the World. You will be moved by the preaching of Pastor Paige Evers (who both begins and ends the reflections), Pastor John Ranney (Reformation’s Pastor Emeritus), Lee Clarke (our Worship and Music Committee chairman), Pastor Judy Moller-Gavlick, Pastor Eric Evers, and Pastor Gordon Simmons as they reflect on Christ’s words of love as he offers his life for the salvation of the world.
