Believe GriefAfter a few weeks off from preaching, during my transition from St. James to St. Paul’s, I’m “back in the saddle again” with a sermon on John 11:1-26.  I really hope this message will be a blessing to you, especially if this is a season of grief in your life…or anytime you need to think about how Jesus can change your life!  (And oh, check out this awesome video by the Skit Guys which was the Call to Worship!)

ServantThe fourth and final in this worship series!  This sermon is a tad longer because it contains an “Open Mike Time” of people sharing how they have used by God to bless and love others!  My prayer and hope is that this series has inspired you to Invite, Welcome, Grow and Send!

Grow ActivitiesThe third in my final sermon series at St. James as we explore growing in faith!  I was especially glad to share this sermon with the Director of Discipling at St. James, Bobbie Hoffman, as she shared her own faith journey!  It’s a special blessing that not only was she changed by growing in her faith, but she passes that on to all she meets!

Also note that these three activities can be found in most churches and will bless anyone engaged in worship, ministry and small groups!

Looking Back and Stepping ForwardOk, so I’m finally caught up on messages from over the holidays!  Here is the one I preached on January 4 and 5 to celebrate a brand new year.  In particular, the life of Jacob has some very good lessons to guide us in 2014.  I hope it is a blessing!

A SeasonMany people said this message was a blessing as we experience this pastoral transition at St. James.  But much more important is that change and “seasons” are part of God’s plan, so if we can roll with them, we’ll be ready for the next, and next and next!  My prayer is that through this message you will more firmly ground your life in God’s presence and love!
