New Plumb Lines

Passage: Amos 1:7-8
Series: General
Duration: 20 mins 40 secs
The prophet Amos was shown a plumb line, a tool for ensuring that buildings are set vertical. God calls us to be plumb lines within society, let God put us right with him, grow us in holiness, and give us his Word to share with those around us. [Organ/Choir - Pentecost 7]
Marriage: More Than Love?
6:00pm, Sunday, July 5, 2015
Thomas Place asks the big questions, and this month it's all about marriage. In society, it's in something of a decline; and those who do marry generally agree that they marry for love. And they also unmarry when the love fades. Does God have anything to say about the kinds of love that should power a marriage? [Thomas Place - Pentecost 6]
Hometown Blues
9:00am, Sunday, July 5, 2015
Passage: Mark 6:1-6
Series: General
Duration: 20 mins 48 secs
When Jesus took his disciples home to Nazareth, there was no warm welcome. Folks couldn't get past their image of the hometown boy to see the Messiah standing before them. And their unbelief was a real barrier to Jesus' redeeming power. Today's story has much to say to the contemporary church. [Organ - Pentecost 6]
I Need a Miracle

Passage: Mark 5:34
Series: General
Duration: 21 mins 7 secs
Today's Gospel includes two stunning miracles: the healing of a woman who suffered incurable bleeding for the previous 12 years; and the raising of the daughter of a synagogue leader called Jairus. Do such miracles have anything to say to us today? [Organ/Choir - Pentecost 5]
Still in the Storm

Passage: Mark 4:35-41
Series: General
Duration: 21 mins
When a storm swamped their boat, the disciples probably wanted the sleeping Jesus to help bail out the water. What they got was something completely unexpected: a revelation of the Son of God, with them in person then as he is with us now. [Organ/Choir - Pentecost 4]
What's New?
11:00am, Sunday, June 14, 2015
Series: General
Duration: 25 mins 4 secs
When someone asks "What's new?", we might struggle to find anything interesting. But for Christians, Paul tells us that God is making all things new. The past, with all its sins, is gone and forgiven. Everything has a new start -- all things are made new for our redemption. [Organ/Choir - Compassion Sunday]
Can I Be a Rich Christian?
6:00pm, Sunday, June 7, 2015
Duration: 26 mins 36 secs
Our Thomas Place series tackles big questions; so what does it mean for us when Jesus says we cannot serve 'money'? Should we be selling all we have, and giving to the poor? What does this mean for Christians in wealthy countries? [Thomas Place - Pentencost 2]
Renewed Household of Faith
9:00am, Sunday, June 7, 2015
Passage: Mark 3:27
Series: General
Duration: 20 mins 39 secs
(Pastor Vaughn Spring is Pastor for Grow Ministries.) When Jesus taught us to pray "Your Kingdom come", these were not trite words. They mean that starting from baptism, we live in a beautiful faith union with Christ, here today on earth and forever with him in heaven. But this may not always be comfortable... [Organ/Choir - Pentecost 2]
God Almighty, or God All-Matey
11:00am, Sunday, May 31, 2015
Passage: Isaiah 6:1-8
Duration: 12 mins 44 secs
Today's sermon followed Bach's cantata BWV 68, "God So Loved the World". God is holy, pure, and undefiled; yet he found a way to invite us back into community with him, through his Son. In the words of the cantata, "He did not come only to judge the world, no, no, He wished to mediate for sin and guilt as intercessor between God and man." [Orchestra/Choir - Trinity Sunday]
