Typically, during the season of Advent, we focus on Mary, the mother of Jesus. The account of the Christmas story in Luke’s Gospel is told from her point of view. Joseph is often left in the background. The Bible tells us relatively little of this man who played such an important role in Jesus’ life. Joseph protected him, provided for him, taught him and mentored him. Joseph wasn’t Jesus’ biological father, yet he adopted him and raised him as his own son. This series of sermon messages explores the powerful lessons Joseph gives us in the details of his life that we do have.

Every election season, Americans brace themselves for a year of polarized politics in which candidates sling mud at their opponents. Complex moral and political issues are addressed in thirty-second soundbytes offering polar opposite solutions. Incendiary e-mails containing partial truths will be forwarded by the millions. And friends and family will find that their relationships are threatened by politics. 

We believe that it is possible that Jesus’ teaching may hold the key to a better way. This five-week series of sermon messages looks at some of the issues that divide us as a nation. We hear from both Republicans and Democrats as we consider the role of government and the role of people of faith in finding solutions to these issues. As we do, we will find that the words of Jesus can lead us to tear down walls and build bridges as we seek a better way to do politics.

Everyone is looking for “the good life.” Television shows have been produced about it. Hit songs have been sung about it. Psychologists and self-help gurus from Dr. Oz to Oprah have sought to help us find it. Long before this modern focus, Jesus told his disciples that he came to show them the way to the good life. His teaching helps us reframe our thinking about it. In this three part series of sermon messages, Pastor Adam Hamilton explores what Jesus said about the good life and the keys he gave to experiencing it.

Fifty years after Jesus died, one of his closest companions wrote an account of Jesus’ life. The Gospel of John has historically been described as “the spiritual Gospel.” The writer doesn’t just tell us what Jesus said and did, he reveals why Jesus matters. The writing’s visceral, often symbolic nature is rich with significance. During the season of Lent it’s message is particularly poignant.

As you progress through this eight part series of sermon messages, we suggest that you read through the Gospel of John for yourself.

Joseph is an important figure in the book of Genesis. Sold into slavery by his jealous brothers, he rose to become the second most powerful man in Egypt next to Pharaoh. His path from slavery to this powerful office is made even the more unlikely, yet facilitated by false accusation and imprisonment. Joseph is ultimately reunited with his family in dramatic fashion.

This two part series of sermon messages revisits the story of Joseph, his eleven brothers and the coat of many colors through scripture and gives practical context to its lessons.

“It’s the most wonderful time of the year…” The Christmas season is a time filled with promise. But what is the promise of Christmas? If we’re not clear about what Christmas really promises, we might just miss out on what makes it the most wonderful time of the year. This series of sermon messages takes an Advent journey back to Bethlehem and recalls the promises that were made by the prophets, the angels, the wise men and shepherds. The fulfillment of these promises is what makes this “the most wonderful time of the year.”

Human beings aren’t perfect. We make mistakes, we mess up, and we hurt ourselves and others. We sometimes end up feeling unlovable, broken and worthless - like a piece of discarded furniture set out on the curb. But just like that ugly sofa, all we need is for someone to see our potential and give us a second chance. This series of sermon messages affirms that no matter where we are or what we’ve done, God sees beyond our imperfections, loves us, forgives us and offers us a new life.

Questions often lead the way in this uncertain world. No one has all the answers. What if asking the right questions is more important than having the right answers? In this three part sermon series we wrestle together with the role that questions play in our life. We ponder how they shape our faith. We ask if questions could enable us to become the best versions of the people God created us to be.
