current sermon series


As  Easter people, this series will consider how communities can flourish as beacons of hope and serenity in this “anxious age.”



Truth is, a mere handful of fears work for us–fear of stepping in front of a bus, for example, or not taking care of our health. But the vast majority–fear of others, of failure, of the future–have almost no basis in reality, yet tie us in knots and steal our peace of mind. These fears, experts say, are often vestiges of primitive ‘fight, flight, or freeze’ instincts that, mostly, no longer apply. Making matters worse, our hyper fractious era of hate media, divisive politics, and multiplying natural disasters wreak havoc on our state of mind, leaving us troubled and unhappy.

This series is based on a new book, written by author and pastor, Adam Hamilton.


4/1 – Easter: God’s promise in the empty tomb

4/8 – Unafraid: untying the knots of fear

4/15 – Unafraid: confronting the fear of others

4/22—Unafraid: recovering from the fear of failure
