Light in the Darkness: Advent 2020
Light in the Darkness: Hope
Pastor Matthew Watson begins our Advent 2020 series with a reminder that Advent Hope centered on Jesus is what actually allows us and frees us to see the light in the darkness.
Light in the Darkness: Peace
Jesus not only brings peace—as the angel chorus sang to the shepherds, “Peace on earth, goodwill to all!” Jesus is our peace. Pastor Justin Fung takes a look at how Christ is our peace in three areas of life: peace with God, peace with others, and peace with ourselves.
Light in the Darkness: Joy
It’s been an especially difficult year, and fear has played a huge role in that. On the third Sunday of Advent, Pastor Lisa Roriguez-Watson reminds us that God matches our fears with his presence and power, and this brings us joy.
Light in the Darkness: Love
On our last Sunday service of 2020, Pastor Andrea Ackermann takes her cue from the angels in the Christmas story. At the end of such a difficult year, it feels right to proclaim the truth that we are loved. God came to us in the person of Jesus. And by recognizing God’s love in Jesus, we recognize God’s love for us. No matter what this year has been like, no matter what has happened, no matter the level of uncertainty we're feeling about starting a new year soon, we can proclaim we are loved.
Christmas Eve 2020
Pastor Matthew Watson concludes our Advent "light in the darkness" series with this Christmas Eve homily.
