You Win!

By Vicar Phil Valdez | June 9, 2024

Genesis 3:8-15 When you look into the mirror, do you ever see the face of a loser? What I mean is, are you happy with yourself? Do you have regrets? Are you content with your life? I know that I have sometimes felt like a loser. What about you? It’s not uncommon to feel like…

Get Some Rest

By Pastor Tom Kock | June 2, 2024

Deuteronomy 5:12-15 As I was studying for the sermon today, I was reminded of an article that a friend of mine had sent me some years ago.

You’ll Never Be Like Giannis (And That’s Okay)

By Assistant Pastor Damion Glisper | May 26, 2024

Isaiah 6:1-8 How do you feel when you’re in the presence of greatness? I don’t know about you, but when I go to a Bucks game or when I watch basketball on TV, I realize that even on my best day, I did not have the skill or the talent of an NBA player. Although…

You’re on the Team

By Pastor Tom Kock | May 19, 2024

Acts 2:1-21 One of the more anxious times in my life was when I was a freshman in high school and I was trying out for the basketball team. I went my freshman year to high school up in Minocqua, Lakeland Union High School, big high school, about 250 kids in each grade. And so…

His Hands Are Still Up

By Vicar Phil Valdez | May 12, 2024

Luke 24:44-53 Do you feel blessed? I don’t know about you, but I don’t always feel blessed. Why am I having all these problems at work? Why am I having all these financial issues? Am I really getting this diagnosis right now? That’s the last thing I need on my plate. Do we think these…

Best Sermon Ever!

By Pastor Tom Kock | May 5, 2024

1 John 4:7-11, 19-21 There’s an old legend, I guess, about the Apostle John. He spent his last days in the city of Ephesus, and he got to the point where he was an old man, and he really couldn’t handle being the full pastor anymore. But because he was so beloved, towards the very…

How Growth Happens

By Alex Paffenroth | April 28, 2024

Mark 2:26-34 Oh, to be a kid again. To have few responsibilities and little to worry about. Just running around and living life. And yet, everything around the house still managed to get done. Bags were packed for trips. Lunch boxes and backpacks were ready and waiting by the door for school. The house never…

Beautiful Shepherd

By Vicar Phil Valdez | April 21, 2024

John 10:11-18 What comes to mind when you hear the word beautiful? Maybe you think of a great piece of artwork. Maybe you think of your spouse or your children. Maybe you think of a sunrise or a sunset. I suppose there’s a lot of things that you could list that are beautiful. But how…

The Truth We Need

By Pastor Tom Kock | April 14, 2024

1 John 1:5-2:2 To understand this text, you have to understand a little bit about what was going on in the region where 1 John was first directed, probably the region of Ephesus. And there was a false teacher named Serenthas who had shown up. And Serenthas’s message was the same as what you would…
