Sermon: Standing Here, Looking There

(1 Peter 1:3-12)

Sermon Series: Flourish: Hope in a Strange Land

Second week in the series

Featured Verse
In this you rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials 1 Peter 1:6

Sermon Summary
 In the first part of the body of Peter’s letter, he urges his readers to orient themselves toward the future. For the follower of Jesus, he describes how the future is secure and guaranteed. He shows how it enables joy in the midst of suffering. And he explains the unique privilege of living during this time of history. Peter shows us how the gospel gives us hope, joy, and wonder in Christ.

Sermon: When You Don’t Belong (1 Peter 1:1-2)

Sermon Series: Flourish: Hope in a Strange Land

First week in the series

Featured Verse
To those who are elect exiles of the Dispersion in Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia, according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, in the sanctification of the Spirit, for obedience to Jesus Christ and for sprinkling with his blood: May grace and peace be multiplied to you. 1 Peter 1:1-2

Sermon Summary
Do you feel, somehow, that you don’t belong? C.S Lewis said that the sense that we are treated in this world as strangers is part of our “inconsolable secret.” What can we do about it?

Sermon: Prayers of Desperation

Sermon Series: Prayers for the Moment

Final week in the series

Featured Verse
But I with the voice of thanksgiving will sacrifice to you; what I have vowed I will pay. Salvation belongs to the Lord!”” Jonah 2:9

Sermon Summary
2020 has driven many of us to some desperate places. As Jonah struggled for his life after being thrown into the sea, he also found himself in a place of desperation. As we look at Jonah’s prayer from the belly of the fish, we will learn how to pray along with Jonah, “Salvation belongs to our God.”
