Sermon from our May 14, 2017 (Fifth Sunday of Easter) worship service. Pastor Micah preaches on John 14:1-14, a common Bible reading for funerals...but we approach it from a different angle on a Sunday morning! Special thanks to Trinity organist Richard Etter for singing during this sermon!

In the final sermon of Pastor's "Christian Worship Explained" series, we take a "dime tour" of Trinity's worship service, discovering the Bible passages behind most of the things we do each Sunday morning. This series helps explain much of the richness of Trinity's worship practices and traditions by highlighting their biblical origins.

In the second of 3 sermons in Pastor's "Christian Worship Explained" series, we look at Pastor's favorite Bible story (Luke 24:13-35, the Road to Emmaus) to explore where the form of Christian worship comes from - specifically, how the Road to Emmaus story gives us the Gathering, Word, Meal, Sending pattern we use each week. This series helps explain much of the richness of Trinity's worship practices and traditions by highlighting their biblical origins.

In the first of 3 sermons in Pastor's "Christian Worship Explained" series, we look at John 20:19-31 to explore why Christians worship - specifically, why we worship together, each week. This series helps explain much of the richness of Trinity's worship practices and traditions by highlighting their biblical origins.

Sermon from our April 16, 2017 (Easter Sunday) worship service. Pastor Micah preaches on Matthew 28:1-10, sharing the many ways that Matthew's Easter story and the event of Easter give courage that answers many of our deepest human fears. (Pastor's inspiration for this week's message comes from The Courage to Be, written by the great theologian Paul Tillich.)

Sermon from our April 13, 2017 (Maundy Thursday) worship service. We share two Bible stories of Jesus emptying himself for others (from the Last Supper, Matthew 26:26-29 and the footwashing story from John 13). Pastor Micah then had a short message about one of the biggest liars he's encountered in the world...the "E" on the car gas gauge.

Sermon from our April 2, 2017 (Fifth Sunday in Lent) worship service. After reading the story of Jesus raising Lazarus (John 11:1-44) during Children's Time, Pastor Micah explored with us the consequences Jesus faced afterward (John 11:45-53). In John's Gospel, the raising of Lazarus is the "final countdown" for Jesus because of the religious leaders' fear of him.

Sermon from our March 26, 2017 (Fourth Sunday in Lent) worship service. Pastor Micah preaches on the story of Jesus giving sight to a man born blind (John 9:1-41), which causes an argument among the Pharisees because they don't understand who Jesus really is. We sometimes struggle with this too...but God's gift of the New Testament scriptures helps us have a better starting point for faith than was available as all of Jesus' wonderful signs were unfolding.

Sermon from our March 19, 2017 (Third Sunday in Lent) worship service. Pastor Micah preaches on the story of Jesus' encounter with a Samaritan woman at Jacob's well (John 4:5-42), remembering a fun phrase from the old Batman TV show.

Sermon from our March 12, 2017 (Second Sunday in Lent) worship service. Pastor Micah preaches on the beloved story of Jesus and Nicodemus (John 3:1-17), tracking Nicodemus' progression from believing in Jesus to believing about Jesus to eventually believing Jesus. Nicodemus' misadventures on Jesus' "discipleship train" reminded Pastor of a mistake-filled train trip from his past.
