Sermon- God Is What Matters- Pastor Sarah Rohde

August 22, 2021 Well, we’re getting closer to the end of this book, and like any good book, the tension is mounting. At this point in Acts, the Apostle Paul has moved on to the city of Ephesus. Ephesus at the time was the second-most important city in the Roman Empire next to Rome, and still today it’s known as one of the most spectacular archaeological sites in the world.

Sermon- Sharing Our Faith- Pastor Sarah Rohde

August 15, 2021 I was having a conversation with a chiropractor a few years ago, and we bonded over the experience that we’ve had, over and over again, when we share with others what we do for a living. She said to me, “I have to quickly clarify that I’m not one of those chiropractors, specifically the kind that reject all of western medicine” and I nodded in understanding. As soon as I say that I am a pastor to someone who knows nothing else about me, I, too, feel the need to try to explain the kind of pastor I am, or the kind of pastor I’m not.

Sermon- The Acts Of The Holy Spirit – Pastor Sarah Rohde

July 25, 2021 As we’ve journeyed through the book of Acts this summer, one of the things I’ve appreciated most is the deep-dive that it gives us into the workings of the Holy Spirit. Acts begins with the Spirit’s arrival, but that’s just the first course; the rest of the book tells us the story of what the Spirit of God does with the earliest followers, and with those of us still trying to follow Jesus today.

Sermon- Resurrection – Pastor Sarah Rohde

July 11, 2021 Last week, Pastor Paisley preached on the story from Acts 3, when Peter and John are on their way to pray, and they’re stopped by a man who is lame, who’s spent every day of his life laying just outside the temple gate. Their eyes meet, Peter has no money to give, but he gives the man what he does have, which is the love of Jesus. The kind of love that pays attention to people in pain, to people in need. And upon being seen, upon hearing Jesus’ love spoken to and for him, the man stood up and walked. The man experienced his own resurrection, the gift of new life!
