    “Do You Want to Be Healed?”
    Series: Easter 2013
    Are you willing to be healed? OF what, you may ask, do I need to be healed from? You may not like the may think that this could not possibly be the answer...but truly the answer is:  YOURSELF!! In our message today Pastor Aaron delivers a message from the Gospel of John. Jesus finds an invalid by a pool, that by tradition, had healing powers once a year. We find a man that knew the spot to share his story and for 38 years had been pedaling that story to any who would listen and sympathize (with material goods). Jesus, by no work of our own, gives us freely healing through His blood. What happens when your excuses are gone and the Master calls?  Are you willing to be healed?

    “What’s All the Excitement About?”
    Series: Easter 2013
    What do you get excited about? We have all heard the expression, "I'm like a kid in a candy store!" Think about what gets you excited...the next edition in a movie, TV, or book series, perhaps. Maybe it's the introduction of something always wondered about, but not yet experienced? In today's message Pastor Aaron talks about how the St. John related the Revelation. Here we have the tour guide whisking the group along staying on a schedule and the guided wanting more time to experience. How excited are you about the New Heaven and the New Earth? There is a whole bunch of voices offering the newest form of distraction, claiming that it will revolutionize your life. You know what, as Christians we really don't need a revolution because we have Redemption! Redemption and justification through Faith and gift of God's eternal grace. We invite you to listen and be filled with vigor to know God's Word.

    “Safe in the Shepherd’s Care”
    Series: Easter 2013
    "27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. 28 I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand." (John 10:27-28, ESV) Can you hear those words being spoken to you...can you, really? Above the constant drone of ads and plethora of other voices that call for your attention and favor. In today's sermon Pastor Rick has prepared a message that speaks to His voice and His care. The cries of the Jews then sound much like the disdain from some now..."Just tell us plainly if you are the Son of God!" He has told everyone and just like His words proclaim "My sheep hear my voice,..." We invite you to listen and hope and pray that the Lord's voice penetrates the barrier of noise in your life and you hear the sweet voice of our Great Shepherd!

    “Worthy is the Lamb.”
    Series: Easter 2013
    "Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain, whose blood set us free to be people of God." The ramifications that have come, and continue to, from Christ's perfect sacrifice can leave us paralyzed from bewilderment. The only one who by Himself can be called and is "Worthy!" The Greeks thought their wisdom was enough and only the spirit need be clean (what defiles the body defiles the soul, sorry Plato). The Romans thought Caesar the only one worthy and that their gods would keep them and their military might superior (Et tu, Brute?!) No wonder followers of "The Way" were persecuted as non-believers and idolaters. Here they were proclaiming a crucified Jewish criminal as "Worthy", and rightly so they/we should unabashedly make that proclamation. He is worthy to be glorified, He is worthy to deliver us justified, He is Worthy to reign with the Father and the Spirit, One God, now and forever, Amen! We invite you to listen.

    “Believe and Proclaim: Its Not that Hard.”
    Series: Easter 2013
    HE is Risen! HE is Risen, Indeed! Alleluia! We say it so that must mean we believe it...we must easily believe that someone who died, rose from the grave, a full bodily resurrection. That is easy to believe, right? If we believe then why do we often remain locked in our faith, locked in our proclamation of the good news that is meant for ALL people. We invite you to listen the this message prepared by Pastor Aaron and hear the good news and the Peace that has been given us by our Risen Lord, Amen!

    “A Time to Speak”
    Series: Lent 2013
    Silence is golden, speech is silver...and that depends on who is saying it. Jesus, though, always had a judicious approach with His words, especially at the end. So to keep with the simplicity and power of His message, we invite you to listen to this Good Friday message and take strength in...."Tetelestai!"?"it is finished!"?"Paid in Full!"

    “A Time to Love”
    Series: Lent 2013
    We all have close friends, friends that we invite over for dinner, friends that we share our joys and troubles with, and friends who we believe will be there till the end. What if, though, you learned of a plot, a gossip, a whisper amongst your friends that they were envious, jealous, felt betrayed because you had not done something they thought you would do; and as consequence one of them would hand you over to the authorities the next day. The rest would merely show false bravado, but in the end turn, run and deny they know you. You are thinking, no this could not happen to me, my friends and I know intimate details about each other we are blood brothers. Many have thought this in history: Germans hiding Jews or speaking against Das Fuhrer, Russians speaking against the "Dear Leader" or the politburo, Americans hiding runaway slaves...these are all terrible examples of the worst in man's heart and although many of these lost property and their lives, none of them suffered and anguished with foreknowledge of their apprehension. So, what would you do if you knew...distance yourself, get them first, what, if anything, could you do? The answer is quite simple and for us mere mortals darn near impossible....LOVE!  We invite you to listen to the example set by the only One who did, or even could, constantly, truly LOVE, Amen. All glory praise be to Christ our Lord, Savior, and the One we should immolate!
