Faces in the Crowd

There were many faces in the crowd the day Jesus rode the donkey into Jerusalem. Some objected to his arrival. Some feared his arrival. Others were curious. Many celebrated. Many just followed the crowd. But those whom he touched went on to form the church. Here's Joe's message on Palm Sunday from the pulpit of the Scotch Ridge Presybterian Church: Faces in the Crowd

During our time of praise we sang "Shout to the Lord."

An Extravagant Gift

Have you ever been broken open and poured out? Mary, the sister of Lazarus, offered an extravagant gift to Jesus, a pint of nard. She broke it open and poured it on him, thus preparing him for the cross and death. In doing so she demonstated for us what it means to be broken and poured out for Christ. Today's sermon text is John 12:1-11.

Metamorphosized

This time of year we see nature spring to life. This transformation from gray to green reminds us of of God's power to make a new creation out of a broken and defeated person. Check out Joe's message from the Scotch Ridge pulpit: Metamorphosized!

Deeper Waters


Is it time for a change? Do you feel like there is something more? Perhaps God is trying to move you to deeper waters. It's scary because you'll be far from shore and you won't be able to see the bottom, but it is here the big catch awaits.

Finally, after more than a month of record snow we worshiped again at Scotch Ridge Presbyterian Church. Here's Joe's sermon, Deeper Waters. Sermon text: Luke 5:1-11
