Looking Back, Looking Forward
Happy Easter, He is Risen! Worship for April the 4th. Mark 14:50​-52, 16:1-8 A good story begins with an end. The loss of a loved one, a job, or an understanding of the world. Here we encounter the end of Jesus’s time on Earth and Death as we knew it. It is the End that pushes us out onto the path of discipleship, true discipleship.   And thus begins our story… Special thanks to our musicians: Bev B, Mike C, Janice M., & Olivia E. Week 12 and finale of our series, “Unexpected Messiah; the Defiant Jesus of Mark.”

Amen and Aṣẹ
Worship for March 28th Mark Mark 14:17 -31 - Palm Sunday We often end our prayer with ‘Amen,’ let it be so. It is a seal on our words, a wish, and a confirmation of the truth of what we said and heard. Jesus’s time is coming to an end, we raise an Amen to his life and ministry. We also say ‘Aṣẹ,’ a term from our Nigerian brothers and sisters. A wish for power to be instilled into the life and lessons of Jesus and our world. As Jesus prepares for the cross and we prepared for Good Friday, let us seal his teaching into our hearts and breathe power into living them.   Special thanks to our musicians: Bev B, Mike C, & Ranay H. Week 11 of our series, “Unexpected Messiah; the Defiant Jesus of Mark.”

The Trouble Making Prince of Peace
Worship for March 14th Mark 11:15-18, Jesus Cleans the Temple Court We are called to be peacemakers. We approach this as pacifist, but we see in Jesus that we are not called to being passive-ist. What is our reaction to sin? Does it differ when the sin is our’s, others’, relational, or systemic? How can we turn over the tables? Week 9 of our Series: Unexpected Messiah Special thanks to our musicians: Bev B. & Mike C. Week 10 of our series, “Unexpected Messiah; the Defiant Jesus of Mark.”

Priceless/Worthless
Worship for March 14th Mark 14:1-11, Jesus Anointed, Judas Turns Away We attach value to everything: material goods, time, relationships, and even people. What are we mislabeling? What do we price as Worthless that God deems Priceless? What do we see as Priceless, but is really Worthless? Special thanks to our musicians: Bev B. & Mike C. Week 9 of our series, “Unexpected Messiah; the Defiant Jesus of Mark.”

In Us, the Only Permanence is Change
Worship for March 7th Mark 11:12-14, 20-24; 13:28-31, Jesus and the Fig Tree Appearances can be deceptive, not only can they cause misleading assumptions, but they can keep us from realizing the correct path. God pushes us to transform ourselves, to make changes that may not be visible to anyone else. And to change again and again, ever reaching for Jesus’s example. Special thanks to our musicians: Bev B. & Janice M. Week 8 of our series, “Unexpected Messiah; the Defiant Jesus of Mark.”

Doing It Right, Right?
Worship for Feb. 28th (My apologies, I didn't realize it hadn't uploaded last week.) Mark 10:17-31, Jesus and the Rich Man The rich man had no reason to be kept from the Kingdom of God, right? Jesus immediately finds the thing that has held him back and tells him how to correct, but he walks away. What is holding you back? What is God calling attention to? Special thanks to our musicians: Bev B. Week 7 of our series, “Unexpected Messiah; the Defiant Jesus of Mark.”

Ephphatha
Worship for Feb. 21st Mark 7:31-37, Jesus Heals in an Unusual Way Just when you think you have a handle on Jesus and his Way, he does something unexpected, even downright weird! The world is full of rejected strangeness. God works through the strange, teaches lessons through the strange… wait are we among the strange‽ Special thanks to our musicians: Bev B. & Bev S. Week 6 of our series, “Unexpected Messiah; the Defiant Jesus of Mark.”

Called to Faith, not Religion
Worship for Feb. 14th (Happy Saint Valentine's Day) Mark 7:1-23, Jesus Challenged By the Pharisees About Following Ritual Jesus challenged the faith he belonged to, he called the people to deeper piety and perfect faith. In doing so, he challenged the religion of his people, the rules and regulations built around their faith. When does ritual and tradition get in the way of your relationship and walk with Jesus? Special thanks to our musicians: Bev B. & Mike C. Week 5 of our series, “Unexpected Messiah; the Defiant Jesus of Mark.” Episode

Giving Up Home
Worship for Feb. 7th Mark 6:1-6, Jesus Rejected at Nazareth It’s impossible to know where the path of faith will take us. It’s even harder when that path leads us away from family, friends, and home. Jesus was rejected by those who watched him grow. What do we do when we find that our own path leads to rejection? Special thanks to our musician: Bev B. Week 4 of our series, “Unexpected Messiah; the Defiant Jesus of Mark.”

Accepted Sins

Hanging with the Wrong Crowd
Worship for Jan. 24th Mark 2:13-17, The Calling of Levi and a Feast with the Disreputable The old adage goes, “You can tell a lot about a person by the company they keep.” Jesus, Son of God does not keep company with the “respectable.” No, he spends his time with the least respectable. Serving our neighbors means serving those who need it most. Love for our neighbors extends past the boundaries we set up, defying our comfort and convention. Special thanks to our musician: Bev B. Week 2 of our series, “Unexpected Messiah; the Defiant Jesus of Mark.”

From the Outside
Week 1 of our series, “Unexpected Messiah; the Defiant Jesus of Mark.” Mark 1:1-15 - John, Jesus, a Baptism, & a Beginning Jesus starts among the outsiders, the ignored, the rabble rousers. He is here to shake things up, not build up the conventional. Thank you to our musicians: Bev B. & Mike C.
