    Fourth Week of Advent: “A Child of God” – Pastor Brian Wiebe
    We all love the re-telling of Jesus’ birth, the baby born to Mary, laid in a manger and adored by shepherds, angels and the Magi. But they weren’t simply worshiping a baby who would become the Savior – they worshiped the baby who is Jesus, the Son of God, the Word made flesh, the Source and Sustainer of all Creation. Only faith in the Son of God can make you and me a child of God.

    Third Week of Advent: “God With Us” – Pastor Brian Wiebe
    The birth of Jesus was miraculous, extraordinary, amazing! And yet, it was also simple and ordinary. Somewhere between the ordinary and the unbelievable, God made himself human, through Jesus his son. How will we receive Jesus the Savior?

    First Week of Advent: “Don’t Be Afraid” – Pastor Brian Wiebe
    Do you have a reason to be joyful? When an angel appeared to the chilly shepherds in the field to announce the birth of Jesus, they were terrified, with no reason for joy. But they were immediately given Good News, a message of great joy for all people. God’s message of joy chases our fear away, when we act on the Good News.

    Thanks.Giving. – Pastor Brian Wiebe
    The season of Thanksgiving is a great time to remember and remind each other to be thankful, both for what we have and for what God has done. But do we know how to really express our thanks? What does it mean to give thanks?

    King Jehoshaphat: “Taking Shortcuts”; The Wisdom of Kings” – Pastor Brian Wiebe
    Jehoshaphat was a good king, all the way through. But he wasn’t perfect, and got himself in trouble by using ungodly partnerships to shortcut his way to what God already had in store for him. Jehoshaphat reminds us to seek God in God’s way to receive God’s blessing.

    King Rehoboam: “Paying the Price of Worship”; The Wisdom of Kings – Pastor Brian Wiebe
    The Kingdom of Israel divided under Solomon’s son, Rehoboam, into the northern and southern kingdoms. But Solomon had just finished building the temple! Would the citizens of the north continue to worship at the temple in Jerusalem? Would that even be possible? Would it be okay to worship idols closer to home instead?

    King Solomon: “What You Really Need”; The Wisdom of Kings – Pastor Brian Wiebe
    King Solomon inherited the massive challenge of governing his father David’s kingdom. He knew that a good education and good mentoring alone were not enough for the task – he would need something special from God. We also need the gift Solomon received, and it is available to all who ask for it.

    King David: “A Tangled Web”; The Wisdom of Kings – Pastor Brian Wiebe
    King David, Israel’s second and most beloved king, was guilty of shocking acts – he committed adultery with a friend’s wife, then had him killed to cover it up! Not until he was confronted did he confess and repent of his sin. Even so, the consequences of his sin continued to spin out for years. And yet, David experienced total forgiveness, and from that sinful relationship comes the lineage that brings us Jesus our Savior. Amazing grace!
