Welcome Harvest: Pastor Rolly Stahl

July 17th, 2020

Sowing and harvesting features in a bunch of Jesus’ parables about the kingdom of God. Last Sunday, we looked at Jesus’ Parable of the Sower.  We talked about God as the Gardener, and considered what sort of soil is a Welcome Place for Faith.  Today we look at Jesus’ Parable of the Wheat and the Weeds.  While this parable also talks of seeding and harvest time, Jesus is telling us different things about his kingdom.

Matthew 13:24-30, 36-43

Welcome Place for Faith (Pastor Matthias Reid, via Pastor Rolly Stahl)

July 12th, 2020

Jesus shows us that all people matter to God: regardless of their age, gender,
social status, ethnicity, health or wealth, past or present. In his teaching he
speaks the truth in love so that people can share in his kingdom life. In his
miracles, he brings restoration and hope. And in his death and resurrection
Jesus opens the kingdom of God to all!


Today, we will unpack what Jesus’ Parable of the Sower can mean for us. Our theme: Welcome Place for Faith.

Matthew 13:1-9, 18-23

Welcome Rest! : Pastor Rolly Stahl

July 3rd, 2020

Jesus ministered to tens of thousands of people, yet he never seems to be hurried. He spends regular time with his Father; and rests secure in our Father’s love. That’s what Jesus wants for all of us! In Jesus, we find Welcome Rest for our souls.

Matthew 11:25-30
