This Sunday

This Sunday – August 21st, 2016

This Sunday we have the privilege of gathering together to sing, study God’s word and take communion.

God’s call to us is what brings us together. He invites us to hear from him. To consider who he is and what he is done. And as we fix our eyes on Jesus, our lives our changed.

The songs we will sing center around the security and assurance we have in Jesus. I will be giving the third part of our “Habits of Grace” series, talking about the significance of our Sunday gathering.

I am confident that God will be faithful to his promises. Come and behold our Savior!

“If Christ has not been raised [from the dead], your faith is futile and you are still in your sins. Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished. If in Christ we have hope in this life only, we are of all people most to be pitied. But in fact Christ has been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. 21 For as by a man came death, by a man has come also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive.” 1 Cor. 15:17-22

This Sunday, we celebrate a risen Christ who has the power to forgive sin, transform our lives, and is interceding for us before God the Father. Whether your faith is weak or strong, come to be encouraged that Jesus is present with us as we gather!

After having been gone for a month, I am excited to be with you as we sing, study God’s Word and take communion together.

Chris Hughes is going to continue our series called Habits of Grace. The goal of this four part series is to help us view the spiritual disciplines as the places where God has invited us to experience and know him. Chris will be talking about Scripture and the privilege we have to read God’s Word.

Can’t wait to worship with you all!

This Sunday – July 10th, 2016

It’s been quite a week, hasn’t it?

We celebrated our nation’s independence. We watched in horror and shock as each day seemed to bring another story and video of tragedy. We read articles and talked to others about the difficulties that are facing our nation. And now we gather as a church family.

It is times like these (and really every week) it is so good to come together to pray, and sing, and listen to God’s word as he speaks to us. God invites us to experience his power and presence. He tells us to come and remember who he is. He calls us to seek him.

So that is what we will do.

I will lead our times of singing, and Moses Lee will preach from Psalm 44.

We also have the joy of welcoming 20 new people as they become members of Redeemer.

See you there!

Why are you cast down, O my soul,
and why are you in turmoil within me?
Hope in God; for I shall again praise him,
my salvation and my God.
Psalm 42:11

Each week we come together to acknowledge and remember that our hope is found in Jesus alone. There are times in our lives when we feel this desperately, and other times when we need to be reminded of our dependence.

Regardless of where you find yourself, join us this Sunday as we encounter God by his Spirit through singing, preaching, and communion.

I will lead our times of singing, and we have the joy to hear from Chris Hughes as he preaches from Psalm 42.

This Sunday we have the privilege to gather to sing, study God’s word, and taken communion.

God will meet us through his Spirit, and he will again remind us that he is good, great, and glorious. This is what we need to hear more than anything else!

Eric will continue our series in the book of Psalms, preaching from Psalm 13, a psalm of lament, and I will lead our times of singing.

“As for man, his days are like grass; he flourishes like a flower of the field; for the wind passes over it, and it is gone, and its place knows it no more. But the steadfast love of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear him, and his righteousness to children’s children.” Psalm 103:15-17

Do I deserve to be loved? This is a question that we constantly ask ourselves, sometimes consciously, sometimes not.

We evaluate what we’ve done recently, how we might or might not of fulfilled people’s expectations, we search our feelings, we try to think positively. Sometimes our answer is yes, sometimes it is no.

Have you ever found yourself asking this question of the Lord as well? How can I be sure that God is going to love me? How can I be sure that he will be good? Have I done enough?

This Sunday, we gather to remind ourselves that God’s love is rooted in his character. He is a God whose steadfast love is from everlasting to everlasting. The answer to this question is found in God’s goodness, not our significance. It is found in his faithfulness, not our work.

Come to lift your eyes above yourself and your trials to see a God who is bigger and better than you can imagine.

Caleb Quezada and myself will lead our times of singing, and Eric will preach from Psalm 103.

I look forward to worshipping with you all!

“Oh come, let us sing to the Lord; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation!” Psalm 95:1

This Sunday we have the privilege to meet together as a family. More than that, God is calling us together to reveal to us his character and glory and help us experience his presence.

We are beginning our series in the book of Psalms. I am going to kick off the series with a message on why the Psalms are important, how we can benefit, and what they reveal about God. We’ll be moving through a lot of Scripture so I encourage you to bring your Bibles!

After the message, we’ll take time to read a few Psalms and have an extended time to sing together.

Hope to see you there!

This Sunday, June 5th, 2016

Our family has had quite a week of sickness this week. My daughter went to the doctor with double ear infections on Tuesday. My wife had an allergic reaction after tasting the medicine my daughter was taking that same day, leading to an urgent care visit. On Wednesday, two kids were diagnosed with strep throat, On Thursday, it was my turn with strep and my wife rounded out the week with getting strep on Friday. Lots of sickness, lots of antibiotics. (Thankfully we are all getting better!)

This Sunday, we get to commune with the Great Physician. You might not feel sick, or you might feel like your soul can barely move. But whatever you might feel, we will experience a fresh dose of the best medicine for our souls. What we need is the good news of the gospel. This is what cures the sin sick soul, the grief filled soul, the doubting, anxious soul, and the soul in turmoil. We need to taste God’s forgiveness, love, nearness, and power. It is here that we see what has been done for us, that we might truly live.

I look forward to remembering and celebrating this gospel together. Duke will lead our times of singing and Jonathan Collegio is going to preach from Genesis 12:1-9.

See you there!

This Sunday, we have the privilege of gathering as God’s people to hear from him and respond in worship.

Part of our singing will be a song of lament that seeks to capture our yearning to see Jesus return and make all things right. We will also take time to rehearse the promises that he has given to us in and through Jesus.

We also have the joy to welcome Matt Klingler, pastor of The Well Church in Silver Spring, MD as he preaches to us from God’s word.

I look forward to being with you all!
