Current Sermon Series & Sunday Happenings

The prophets saw glimpses of God's unfolding plan - things that even angels longed to see. God's people yearned for a Savior, waiting and searching for the signs of his coming. Some thought they had it figured out, but no one could fathom the intricate, mysterious, amazing nature of God's plan. Who is like our God?  Who would work in such unfathomable ways that confound even the wisest of people?

During this Advent season, let's lift our minds out of the everyday struggles and busyness and purposefully enter into mystery. Together, let's contemplate God's amazing plan that no one expected, that took all by surprise. Let's search the depths of God's love made tangible by sending his Son, Jesus, born into humble circumstances but bringing about the greatest demonstration of love imaginable. How can we marvel? How can we not seek and long for our Messiah, who has come and is yet to come? How can we continue on with things as normal when such greatness beckons.

 But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things - and the things that are not - to nullify the things that are, so that no one may boast before him. 1 Corinthians 1:27-29
