Witness
Rev. Roland A. Ludlam

To have a story you have to live a story. And once you do, you can share it with your world. The women who came to Jesus' tomb on Easter morning did just that. And we can do the same as we experience Jesus' resurrection life.

Uh Oh!
Rev. Roland Ludlam
02/15/2015
God's Kingdom is coming, but are you ready for it when it arrives? Jesus tells a story about a group of bridesmaids: some of them were ready for the festivities, but others were not. What will you need to do to be sure that you are ready for Him?


R.S.V.P.
Rev. Roland A. Ludlam
02/08/2015
Jesus tells a story about guests who were invited to the wedding of the king's son. Their failure to R.S.V.P. properly costs them everything. God has invited you to become part of His New Creation. How will you R.S.V.P.?


Whose Garden?

Fair Share

All Is Forgiven

Storm Warning!

Shadow-Line
Rev. Roland Ludlam

Jesus' birth marked Day One in God's New Creation. a prophet named Simeon announced God's coming to God's People, Jew and Gentile. The challenge to us is to be sure we are living in God's new Day.


The Word Made Flesh
Rev. Roland Ludlam
12/21/2014
John's Christmas Story takes us all the way back to Creation and all the way forward to God's New Creation. But in order for God to come and set us free, He had to become flesh and blood: the Word made flesh.


Immanuel -- God With Us
Rev. Roland Ludlam
12/14/2014
Matthew's Christmas Story tells us what it means for God's long  awaited King to come home to His people. The King's coming is announced by a sign, and how we respond to that sign says alot about how we will respond to the King.


Savior, Christ the Lord
Rev. Roland Ludlam
12/07/2014
Luke's Christmas Story anchors Jesus' birth in the complex world of His time. Even His titles meant different things to different people. In order to live out Luke's Christmas Story, we, too, must make Him Savior and Lord in every aspect of our lives.


You Are My Son

The Golden Calf
Rev. Roland Ludlam
11/09/2014
Our New Exodus journey will eventually bring us to the decision of who or what will be our God. For Israel, it was the choice between God and a golden calf of their own making. In Revelation 13 we meet the enemy as a seemingly all-powerful and very seductive world power. We face the same choices today.

Call to March
Rev. Roland Ludlam

Egypt or Exodus?
Rev. Roland Ludlam
10/19/2014
In this message we explore the first of 6 vision cycles in Revelation. We hear Jesus' words to the church living here in this world. Then as now, it faced serious challenges: assimilation to culture, persecution, complacency. And then as now, Christians had to decide whether to go forward on Exodus or go back to Egypt. Small Group Questions are at the end of the sermon notes.
