At the end of the powerful vision in Revelation, God’s Kingdom has come to be here on Earth, and the vision points to God as Healer who bring people together. This is the fifth week in our series, “Revelation Song.” Pastor Susan Hagan’s message is based on Revelation 21: 10, 22 – 27; 22: 1-5. […]

The vision of a new heaven and new earth is almost too good to be true, but that’s where we place our ultimate hope – that God’s goodness will win out against evil. This is the fourth week in our series, “Revelation Song.” This week’s worship opens with “All Things New (New Years).” Pastor Mary’s […]

Revelation was first written to offer hope in difficult times and encouragement for those who were struggling to remain faithful to God. The message hasn’t changed. Faith in Jesus doesn’t guarantee an easy life here on earth, but it does offer assurance that we are not alone. This is the third week in the series, […]

Revelation is not a prediction, but an extended vision meant to offer hope to fellow believers. John’s vision reminds us who Jesus is – the Lamb of God – and what he does – takes away the sin of the world. Our response is to worship Jesus together. This is the second week in the […]

The last book in our Bible, Revelation, is not one to be feared. Instead, it gives us a glimpse into a time of persecution in the early church, challenges us to consider our personal and communal faith, and understand a foundational truth: God is God, always and forever. This is the first week in our […]

What no one though was possible happened. The woman who went to the tomb to care for Jesus in death found a word of life and hope. Even though it seemed like “you had to be there” to believe it, the good news of resurrection spread, and we can rejoice and be glad! This is […]

Jesus’ sacrificial love is on display as he washes feet and calls his friends to serve in his name, all while they plot to kill him, struggle to understand, and eventually betray him. Perhaps his feelings are heard in the psalmist’s own struggle with those who hurt us. This is the second to last message […]

The psalms express the highest joy and the deepest sorrow, which is reminiscent of what Jesus and the crowds experienced as he came into Jerusalem as a part of a protest-parade and then as things moved quickly to his arrest, trial, and death. It’s right for us to engage in this journey deeply – reflecting […]

As we journey closer to Holy Week, this psalm is a cry from the depths of pain or despair. There is no clear resolution, no clear fix to the brokenness; the separation still abides. And yet, there is hope.  There is confidence, even from a position of pain, that resolution is at hand. There is […]
