I’m Not Worthy
Series: Declare!
New Years is a time to be honest. As we make resolutions, we admit that we are not the people we want to be. Yet, when Jesus-followers admit our faults and sins, it is not a “downer” on us, but actually a boost in our value. Jesus came because even broken, to Him we are worth saving! This Sunday we come honest before God, admitting–like John the Bapist–that we are not worthy. As we do, we hear how our value comes not from being worthy, but from Jesus’ love for us “while we were yet sinners.”

    Be Baptized
    Series: Declare!
    Ready for 2019? Maybe not just yet! But I think we never will be ready, actually. So, the best thing we can do is commit our past to the past, but make that intentional decision to give 2019 to God. We do that by making a New Year’s resolutions to courageously follow Jesus, no matter what the year ahead may bring. This Sunday we’ll commit 2019 into God’s hands through renewing our baptisms.

    Look!
    Series: Declare!
    Christmas lights, decorations, and merrymaking are everywhere! There is so much to dazzle the eyes. But where do your eyes rest this Christmas? What do you look at that penetrates into your heart? What do you see that is more than a passing flash? Perhaps John the Baptist has the answer. He says, “Look!” and points to Jesus. Look hard. Can you see the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world? Of all there is to see this Christmas, rest your eyes on the baby Jesus!

    Believe!
    Series: Declare!
    John the Baptist calls us to believe. Salvation comes through our belief in Jesus.  It is a simple message, but what does it mean?  And how can we help others understand?  Join us this week as we take John's words to heart and think through what belief really entails.

    Repent!
    Series: Declare!
    Decorating our homes for Christmas usually includes clearing away what normally sits on our furniture and walls to make room for Christmas decorations. It also includes a deeper cleaning as furniture is moved and corners are tidied. John the Baptist, who calls God’s people to prepare for the coming of the Savior, called us clean up our lives. This Sunday we’ll hear the voice of preparation call out: Repent!

    Prepare!
    Series: Declare!
    John the Baptist may not be the first person we associate with Christmas.  However, he is the one who came to prepare the way of Jesus the coming King of kings!  John personifies Advent, which for us is a time of preparation.  As we begin Advent this week, we consider what John has to tell us and what we ought to do in response. Like John, we can be a voice crying out!  Find out how you make this more than just another Christmas season.
