    More than a Mensa – John 1:43-51
    When Jesus calls people to follow him, what is he looking for? Intelligence? A squeaky clean character? Faithfulness? Has God called you? This message looks at the calling of Nathanael. Pastor Frank Reeder is preaching.

    The Order of the Apron – Matthew 2:1-11
    The magi could have preferred the child come to them. But they served by coming to him with gifts. As Jesus shares the ways of his Father's Kingdom, the focus becomes serving rather than seeking to be served. Pastor Frank Reeder preaches on this Epiphany Sunday.

    The Secret of Living – Luke 1:26-38
    In the last message of the Advent season, Pastor Frank Reeder gives us a window on a key truth for living well. In a culture that looks forward to getting lots of Christmas gifts, the spotlight is rather upon giving rather than receiving. Mary, the mother of Jesus might have said no to the calling that the Lord was placing upon this teenaged fiancee. But she gave herself to God and began the Christmas tradition of giving.

    Ordinary People – Mark 1:1-8
    Prepare the way of the Lord. Make straight paths. This ship is about to get underway. This was the message of John the Baptizer. Confession and repentance were the ordinary or standards that he lived by. If we are going to be ready (to get on board) for Jesus when he comes, we had better live by the same standards. "Ordinary People" is the sermon from the Second Sunday of Advent preached by Pastor Frank Reeder.

    Soulprints – Isaiah 64:1-9
    When God created women and men, he imprinted the core of our being with his own image. When we feel like God has forsaken us, the problem usually is not his absence but our insensitivity to what he has placed deep within us. As the season of Advent begins, we pause to look more deeply for the Soulprints of our Creator. Pastor Frank Reeder preaching.

    The Shepherd King – Matthew 25:31-46
    When Christ the King comes to judge fairly at the end of history, he will gather all who have ever lived before him. Then the sorting begins. He is worthy and wise to make these judgements. While salvation is not based upon our deeds, but rather upon the mercy and grace of the King, he does look at our work to see if we have truly lived in a trusting way with him. Pastor Reeder preaches from the Parable of the Sheep and the Goats.

    The Long Tail – Matthew 25:14-30
    Heads or tails. You call it. But it might not be what you think. Do we live on the broad tail of the cat where we are very open to allowing God to have his choice with our lives? Or do we live t the head of the cat, where we give God little to work with by hiding our stewarded talents in the ground? Pastor Frank Reeder preaches with a testimony from missionary Christ Moyer.
