Sermon – Book Of Acts Recap ~ Deacon Heather Feltman

September 12, 2021 Today, we conclude our journey through the book of Acts. Wednesday of last week, Pastor Sarah, Pastor Paisley and I shared a few of the themes that stood out to us. And we hope that you took a bit of time as well to reflect on what you have most appreciated about the journey through this book. Today, I want to offer a brief recap and invite us once more to reflect on the how the Holy Spirit can transform each one of us –if we are willing to open ourselves up to the experience!

Sermon – Everything Was Held In Common ~ Deacon Heather Feltman

July 18, 2021 There is no better proof that Jesus is who he says he is than the before-and-after pictures we have of the disciples.  Before Pentecost, they are scared and timid at any sign of trouble.  Afterwards, they are fearless leaders!  They heal the sick, cast out demons and go to jail gleefully where they sing until the walls come crumbling down. Luke, who is the author of Acts, is wanting to make sure that you and I get the message that the God who created the world and raised Jesus from the dead is still active in this world, bringing healing to the sick, hope to those in despair, and life where death prevails.

Sermon – We Are All Witnesses ~ Deacon Heather Feltman

June 20, 2021 What if these walls could talk? Look around this space for a moment. Since the 1950’s these walls have heard thousands of sermons, some great and inspiring, and others, well, you know. These walls have heard how many renditions of A Mighty Fortress is Our God and Silent Night? These walls have heard the cries of families mourning, the joy of baby’s cries at baptism, and the funny comments made by little ones during the children’s message; these walls have heard the spoken vows of couples joining together in marriage, passionate and heated discussions during congregation meetings and countless prayers uplifted among those sitting in the pews as you are now. If only these walls could talk, we would hear some stories – but we know they can’t, and that’s where we come in!

Sermon – Love Each Other ~ Deacon Heather Feltman

May 9, 2021 I want to begin with a story this morning. Quite a few years ago, I was driving along Santa Monica Blvd. with a friend after an evening graduate class at UCLA. She actually was more than a friend. This dynamic and gracious woman was in a way a minister to me. I have been so blessed by seeming to find wonderful women who have been like ministers to me throughout my life and she was definitely one of them.
