The preached Word, or the sermon, is a central act of our worship.
The preacher proclaims the good news of God reflected through a passage of the Bible, in ways that speak to people’s questions, concerns and experiences, and help shape their identity and priorities. Within that basic framework, our preaching staff find a lot of room for variety. Sometimes we follow the Revised Common Lectionary (a three year cycle of readings established by a broadly inclusive collection of churches), and sometimes we do our own series, focusing on particular themes or books of the Bible, or styles of music. Whether it’s “Broadway and the Bible,” “Strange Love,” “Our Whole Lives,” or “Jesus for President”, we hope you’ll hear a good word about what God is doing in the world, and how we might be called to respond.
