And the people of Israel, the priests and the Levites, and the rest of the returned exiles, celebrated the dedication of this house of God with joy.

Sermon Summary

Why do you get yourself up and come to church on a Sunday morning? No doubt there are many good reasons. Ezra 6, as it leads us into the New Testament, suggests that we consider coming to church to celebrate.

Call for Artists

“Light”  Gallery Group Art Exhibition |  Submissions Due November 5

As the season of Advent dawns on us, we hope to remember that all the decorative lights around us were originally a symbol of Christ being the light of the world. During Christmas, we celebrate God sending his Son to redeem the world, and pray that we keep Jesus as our source of light and joy. We would love to see any art surrounding the theme of light, such as how Christ has shined in your heart or how he has been a source of light for the world. Submissions are due November 5.  Learn how to participate in the upcoming “Light” Exhibition HERE

WORSHIP

Sermon: The Houses of God and Man

Passages: Ezra 5

Fifth week in the sermon series

Sermon Series: Return & Rebuild


Featured Verse: 
Ezra 5:2

Then Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel and Jeshua the son of Jozadak arose and began to rebuild the house of God that is in Jerusalem, and the prophets of God were with them, supporting them.

Sermon Summary

After the discouraged Jews stopped working on the temple, the prophets spoke to encourage the work. In response, the work resumes, but the Jews face bureaucratic challenges from government officials. As they navigate those challenges, we will see how building the house of God still acknowledges the authority of the house of man. But we’ll also see how God’s presence and work permeate everything that happens on earth.

WORSHIP

Sermon: The Mess Between Your Ears

Passages: Ezra 4

Fourth week in the sermon series

Sermon Series: Return & Rebuild


Featured Verse: 
Ezra 4:4

Then the peoples around them set out to discourage the people of Judah and make them afraid to go on building.

Sermon Summary

Sometimes we don’t know what we think. Sometimes we know what we think, but we don’t know why we think it. Where do these thoughts that occur in our minds come from, anyway: from ourselves, from God, or from someplace else? Perhaps there are times when we feel as if we need to empty out the inside of our heads.
