Sermon Series

Pastor Jody Bowser is currently sharing a sermon series on the book of Ecclesiastes called “Making Sense of the Mess.”

Pastor Jody says of the series: “We’re all overwhelmed with the magnitude of what is happening in our world. How stressful it is. How quickly things are changing. The turmoil of it all.  Ecclesiastes looks at life and says, ‘Yeh, you’re right. This world really can seem like a train wreck.’ And yet. Somewhere from the middle of all of that—God speaks. Not in simple ‘pretend like it doesn’t exist’ answers. There is a true acknowledgment of the mess.  The narrator speaks from experience too. He takes us down a long journey into the mess, but (thanks be to God!) that’s not the end of the story. There is hope. There is truth. There are meaningful answers.”  Join us each week to hear what God has to say!
