Heart Prep for Sunday, July 5th

Have you ever realized that you don't actually know as much about a particular subject as you think you do? Have you ever popped off about a particular topic, only to have an expert put you in your place? It's no fun. It's humiliating mostly because we don't like to be wrong, and we especially don't like being exposed in front of others. It makes us feel like frauds, and o...

We will be gathering for the third time this Sunday, June 28th, at Harper Park Middle School.

Heart Prep for Sunday, June 28th

After two weeks and two sermons on worship and gathering together again, we are back in The Gospel of Mark this week and our series on "The King and His Cross." This week we've come to Mark 11:27-12:12 and two confusing scenes. One (Mark 11:27-33) appears to be an unresolved debate between Jesus and the religious leaders on the subject of authority. And the other (Mark 12:...

As we slowly come out of our shells, let us rejoice and be glad that the Lord has brought us through. This will be our second Sunday back from the pandemic hiatus, and we'll be finishing our 2 week series on worship and worshipping together. Next week, we'll be diving back into the Gospel of Mark.

As of this morning, we're planning on meeting together again this Sunday at Harper Park! In light of that good news, we're taking a two-week break from the Gospel of Mark to talk about re-gathering for worship on Sunday. And we're going to focus in on two aspects of meeting together worship and community. Not to worry, we'll pick Mark back up in a couple of weeks and fin...

Heart Prep for Sunday, June 7th

This week, we've come to two of Jesus' most frequently misunderstood actions, the cursing of the fig tree and the cleansing of the Temple, found in Mark 11:12-25. This is no surprise, for, on their own, these two events are difficult to understand. When read together, however, these two events explain each other. Recently, Mark has given us contrasts the Rich Young Ruler...

Heart Prep for Sunday, May 31st

This week, we've come to yet another well-known passage in The Gospel of Mark. And that's the story of Blind Bartimaeus in Mark 10:46-52. One of the things I like about Mark is that he arranges his gospel stories to make a point. The last few weeks we've seen Jesus welcome the little children, followed by the Rich Young Ruler who declines Jesus' welcome. Then we had Jame...
