Topic: Justice

Our Civic Responsibility

In this sermon, Cedrick Baker brings clarity to what it means to be civically engaged in our world in a Kingdom way. He offers insight into ways that we can be God’s love and light without falling into the traps of polarization.


The Inclusive Kingdom

As we reflect on the message of Martin Luther King Jr., we can see the parallel between what he taught and what Jesus told us the Kingdom of God looks like.

Dead Bones Arise

In this past weekend’s sermon, we take a birds-eye view of the prophets, and what they teach us about one of God’s most core values: taking care of the vulnerable.


Getting Under God’s Skin

We kick off our new “You Before Me” series with a look at hospitality as the essence of God —  Making space in your life to love and welcome a stranger.

When The Spirit Moves

Jesus caused a stir in his community when he read the words from Isaiah 61 in his synagogue and announced their fulfillment through his own life and ministry. It’s no surprise; these words outline a powerful declaration of the Spirit of God at work. This sermon explores what happens for us everyday 21st Century believers as we embrace Isaiah 61. When the Spirit moves we are transformed; we become rescued and redeemed people that renew and rebuild communities. Read More

Do Justice

This third sermon in our Love. Walk. Do. series focuses on the importance of doing justice. There is always a danger in attempting to find solutions to justice issues with the political system where all solutions are ambiguous in nature. We are called to actively DO justice in our church and communities as a sign-post of the beautiful Kingdom of God because all of humanity has unsurpassable worth. Read More 


The Merciful and The Pure In Heart

As we continue our series on the beatitudes, we find an increasing understanding of what it means to be a follower of Jesus. In this sermon, Greg talks about mercy and being pure in heart. He also shows how God doesn’t reward us for being merciful and being pure in heart, but there are natural, good consequences in doing these things. Read More
