Youth Sunday Sermons

Sermon YOUTH SUNDAY SERMONS March 11, 2018:  Andrew Ayers John 8:1-11 is a very plain passage with a simple meaning. Jesus just tells us to not be hypocritical and not to judge sinners because we are sinners too. I really don’t see a reason to talk about this story much more… *Laughter*. In reality, this passage is just opening the [...]

Stones that Shout

Sermon February 18, 2018: Rev. Anna Fulmer When I read this passage, I want to say to Jesus. Resist. You can do this. Just resist. Buz said it on Wednesday: The wilderness is a difficult place. A place that is isolating. A place that is dry. A place that is far beyond our cities and towns. It’s a place we [...]

“Let Him Easter in Us”

  Sermon April 16, 2017  Rev. Dr. Buz Wilcoxon  Jesus Christ is risen today! Alleluia! Our triumphal holy day! Alleluia! He is risen, indeed! This is the great truth of the Christian message. The good news that transforms all our darkness into light, our hate into love, our death into life. Jesus’ resurrection from the dead, the return of life [...]

A Week of Contradictions

Sermon April 8, 2017; Rev. Dr. Buz Wilcoxon This day begins a week of contradictions. A week of deep irony and mystery where thing are not as they should be or not as we expect them to be. It’s a week that we call “Holy” but in truth it reveals, in raw transparency just how broken, twisted, and [...]

Rizpah: Mourning as Resistance

Sermon March 26, 2017:  Rev. Anna Fulmer This Lent, we have been preaching stories that Challenge the Empire.

“Down the Mountain”

Sermon February 19, 2017  Rev. Dr. Buz Wilcoxon Integrity. Do you know what that word means? Some would say integrity means being honest. Telling the truth. Some have said that integrity is seen in how you act when no one is watching. But literally, the word in integrity means being whole. Undivided. Complete. It comes from the same [...]

“Seeking the Kingdom”

Sermon February 12, 2017  Reverend Dr. Buz Wilcoxon How strange and different Jesus’ words sound from our world today. He talks about asking, searching, and knocking. In the original Greek language of the gospel, these verbs are used in a way that implies continuous repeated activity over a long period of time. “Keep on asking and it will [...]

“From Enemies to Neighbors”

Sermon January 29, 2017; Rev. Dr. Buz Wilcoxon Sermon Text You can’t escape the question these days. The news over these last few days, these last few weeks forces us to ask: Who do we consider our enemy? And how are we called to treat them? Jesus answers that question loud and clear in this text. He tells [...]

Our passage today is the beginning of a large portion of the Sermon on the Mount in which Jesus [...]

This morning, Amanda and Hope entered into the community of the Church, the one Body of Christ around the world and through the ages. Amanda will remember this day for the rest of her [...]
