Good news

October 2022

We don’t have to look very hard to find bad news, it's all around us, all the time. The world is filled with it. Lots of the time even the Church’s message can come across as negative and unwelcome.

And yet, as Christ followers we steward the greatest news in the history of the world. “Gospel” itself literally means good news. The Gospel is the good news of God’s love and care for us, the promise that he is for us and not against us, and that he really does intend all things to work together for our good.

Right on the money

September 2022

Everyone has different attitudes in life about money. Some people are spenders, some are savers and some try to ignore it. Whatever your attitude about money, there is no escaping it as a reality of life.  Money is a necessary tool for us to take care of our basic necessities, enjoy life, and accomplish our hopes and dreams. 

Because we need money, it can be so easy to get it wrong. We obsess and worry over it and about whether we will have enough of it. We may ignore it and wish it would just go away as an issue. Or we may spend money excessively and waste it.  Our heavenly Father knows our need for money and the ways we struggle to get it right. In this short series we will look at how God wants to see us succeed with money and get it right so that we are right when it comes to money.

Easter 2022

We love the brand new – new clothes, new gear, the new car smell. Two-thousand years ago Jesus rose from the dead and that means there is the power for each of us to be made brand new. To be made new we must believe in that power and open up ourselves to receive it. In this series we will look at how to tap into the power of the resurrection so that we can have a new life in Christ.

Lent 2022

A friend’s child dies; a parent gets a cancer diagnosis; your spouse loses their job. Sometimes life and God’s plan don’t make sense and we end up feeling hurt and angry.

In Seriously, God? we will explore the denial, doubt, and betrayal we experience when we face hardship and life not making sense. While those experiences can drive us further away from God, they can also be opportunities to lean in and learn more about him. 

Even the heroes of the Bible—such as Abraham, Moses, David, and the apostles—experienced situations that caused them to misunderstand God. Their stories show us that the problems of life do not have to crush our faith. Instead if we lean in we can develop a deeper faith.

The series is all about overcoming some of the typical objections to trust in God so we can deepen our relationship with him. 

New Homily Series

Hooked - Followers Fish

February 2022

Throughout these three weeks, we will discuss the importance of sharing our faith, both for the benefit of others and for our own spiritual growth. By the end of this series, our goal is that people will be able to identify a person (or people) in whom they will invest and invite to church for our Lenten series.



January 2022

In life we hit certain turning points or crisis moments where we need to make crucial decisions. Sometimes those circumstances of our own making but often they are not. A problem or crisis or catastrophe occurs. While we didn’t choose the circumstances, we can choose the response.

In this series we will draw encouragement and inspiration from the Scriptures and from the stories of Nativity people as they share what they have done at crucial turning points in their lives.


It's A Wonderful Life

Advent 2021

Study after study shows there’s no practice more effective at increasing your happiness and well-being than practicing radical gratitude. While practicing gratitude is key to increasing our happiness we often forget to do it especially during the Christmas season. In this series, we will look at practicing gratitude so that we can slow down and appreciate the many gifts God has given us.



November 2021

Despite the advances of modern medicine, the mortality rate in our country and in our world is still 100 percent. Everyone dies and yet we do not like to talk about death or think much about it. As a Church, death is one thing we have going for us. Despite the distractions of entertainment and our affluent culture we all must face our death and the death of the people we love the most. Death forces us to look at the big questions of life and the deepest longing of our hearts.

In this series we will look at Catholic teaching on what happens after you die. We will show how we long for something beyond this world and how our actions in the life impact what happens to us in the next.



October 2021

Surrender is a word that has many negative connotations. Songs and sayings that tell us to never surrender resonate deeply with us. However, when it comes to the Christian faith, surrender is necessary. We surrender to God who is in all ways more powerful than us. We surrender our ways for his ways.

Through this series, the stories we will look at show how people in Scripture are faced with challenges to surrender something or surrender their ideas and trust in God. Jesus doesn’t challenge them to give up their desires but to surrender how they are going to fulfill those desires. Jesus doesn’t criticize them for the desire but redirects them. He challenges them to trust in his ways and truly discover what they want.

This series will look at the surprising truth that we often have to surrender to win. We surrender something of smaller value to get something even greater. God takes full responsibility for the life fully surrendered to him.
