I Believe in God the Son

Jesus Is A Big Deal!
What makes Christianity unique from all other world religions is what is believed about Jesus. Jesus was not just a good teacher, and a kind person, and a miracle worker, and a model for us to follow… Jesus was God! Jesus died to that I might live!
 
I know we are all trying to figure out who God is, who Jesus is, Who the Holy Spirit is…
 

Come to think, and wrestle, and be affirmed in your beliefs.

    The People Who Are Out of Luck
    How is your memory?
    What Memories are you making?
    What will you be remembered for?
     
    This Sunday of Memorial Weekend will include the presentation of three (3) flags and three (3) Pledges. The musicians will share and lead us in worship moving us into the presence of God. I will bring a message about the story of people who are out-of-luck, and people who are too busy... helping us establish memories that matter and a life that makes a difference.

    The People Who Have a History
    I believe and life confirms that God has a special love for women. This Sunday is labeled "Mother's Day" on our calendar. Many of you will celebrate this special day, honoring a special mom.   At Jerome Church, we will be expanding Sunday morning to encompass ALL women of ALL ages; because women matter, and women shape our world. Remember, Mother's Day is a "Mixed-Bag"*. Some have wonderful memories and wonderful mothers. Some have been bruised and scared. Some will be sad this day.     
    I invite you to worship as we focus on a story in the Bible of a special woman who teaches us about what it looks like to follow Jesus, as a woman. And we will have a gift for ALL the women/girls.

    The People Who Are Stuck in a Cycle
     
    A child splashes across a puddle... Cross the creek and a new world opens Navigate the raging river to safer shores On the other side of the pond is the fish Sail across the Great Lake to find adventure
    Cross an ocean to new lands and people...
     
    The bible opens and closes with water. God does amazing work in, through, beyond, under, and over the water. Be sure to come this Sunday as we find Jesus out-on-the-water... crossing-the-water... for YOU.

    God does some of His best work in the shadows
    Honestly... most of us have at some point felt like a nobody – insignificant, invisible, and worthless. Most of us at some point have felt like a somebody – important, wanted, and valuable. The heartbeat of God is for the marginalized, left out, left behind, ignored, and forgotten. In the Bible, The Gospel of Luke is a first century portrait of Jesus, spending his time and giving his life for (and giving life to) the broken, the hurting, the empty...for YOU.   I am going to invite us to read through the Gospel of Luke together. Each week we will encounter stories of the nobodies being lifted up to be seen as somebodies; and the somebodies being set free to re-shape our world. We need each other. ALL are created equal in the image of God.    We are calling this series The Story of the Nobodies: writing a new narrative.
     
    I want to give a shout out of thanks to The church of the Resurrection (U.M.) for the idea for this series. This Sunday I will take us to what may seem like familiar territory, but we will look around the corner and discover to see the people who are living in the shadows...and we will find ourselves here too.

    EASTER! It is a big deal in the Church, and a big deal in our culture. This Sunday you will hear about the greatest love story ever. The Story of God giving everything so that humans could live a full and abundant life. This is the true "NO FEAR" experience. Here is a truth: Easter means the worst thing is never the last thing

    Series: More
    MORE! All of us want more of the good things and good experiences. This Sunday, March 5, is a day of MORE! The excitement builds as we anticipate this first Sunday of the newly merged churches.    As the new Lead Pastor of Jerome Church, I look forward to being in the 9:00 am Traditional and the 10:30 am Contemporary worship experiences. MANY have worked tirelessly, creatively, and in unity to prepare for this Sunday morning of new beginning.   Come expecting to receive MORE. Come prepared to give MORE.   I, and ALL of the people who make Sunday a great experience, will be leading us from now through Easter with this theme of MORE. This theme is based on 2 Peter 1:3-12; God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. In this section of the Bible we are reminded and exhorted to supplement your faith
