When In Rome

John Wesley famously said, “I felt my heart strangely warmed” as a response to a public reading of Martin Luther’s preface to the book of Romans. Martin Luther said in that preface, “This letter is truly the most important piece in the New Testament.” Karl Barth, a famous theologian, remarked that it was Paul‘s greatest letter ever written. Dan Kim once said, “This will help me get ordained!” On Aug 6, 13, and 20 we will have a 3 session study into Paul’s letter to the Romans. Come and join this short study to learn, grow, and apply this very important book of the bible. Starts right after worship in the Fellowship Hall. Contact for rsvp and questions.

Creed: What Christians Believe and Why

March 15, 2017 by

“We’re all searching. Sometimes the search is easy: simply type a question and the answer pops up. But sometimes our questions are complicated, and the answers are difficult to see and harder to articulate. How do we discover and examine the truths that give meaning and purpose to life?” This series will be based on Adam Hamilton’s book Creed, as he presents answers to these questions that are contained in the Apostles’ Creed, an early statement of foundational Christian beliefs. In this new sermon series for Lent, we take a closer look at the Apostles Creed and consider important questions of life and our beliefs. And we   consider, perhaps the most important question of all, why does it matter? Pastor Dan is facilitating a discussion on the Apostles Creed for the next 3 weeks after worship from 11:20-12:30.

The Parables of Jesus: “I don’t get it. Put it in plain language”

February 1, 2017 by

sermon series[1]


Have you ever scratched your head sometimes after reading Jesus’ parables and wish you could say to him, “I don’t get it. Put it in plain language.” Peter did! In this series we look at just some of Jesus’ parables and try to make sense of what he was talking about. Perhaps in the process we also gain an understanding of how Jesus wanted us to live.

Feb 5:(Communion) The Good Samaritan (Luke 10:25-37)

Feb 12: The Widow and the Unjust Judge (Luke 18:1-8)

Feb 19: The Mustard Seed (Matthew 13:31-32)

Feb 26: The Talents ( Luke 19:11-26)

We hope to see you at Kenwood soon!
