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!

October Sermon Series “Treasure: On Faith and Money”

September 22, 2016 by

upcoming-series-homepageOn Sunday, Oct 2 we will begin a sermon series and small group called Treasure: On Faith and Money. It will be based on Jesus’ words, “Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” (Matthew 6:21). If you are interested in the Small Group, please contact Dan Kim for more information. Over a period of four weeks, we will look at the many ways that our treasure (time, energy, money) affects our hearts. We will consider how financial challenges in our personal lives affect our relationships with people and with God. We will see how giving helps to determine the way we feel and act. If you have stress related to money or feel there may be more that God is calling you to do with your resources, this will be a helpful study. At the end of the four weeks, we will have the opportunity to make personal commit-ments of giving to our church for the coming year. All of us will receive commitment cards in the mail, and the cards will also be available on Sunday mornings. We can fill out these cards and bring them to worship on Sunday, Oct 23. We look forward to an exciting month considering our treasure and God’s treasure.

New Sermon Series Coming in July

June 9, 2016 by

Who is the Man?

“Jesus’ impact on our world is highly unlikely, widely inescapable, largely unknown, and decidedly double-edged. It is unlikely in light of the severe limitations of his earthly life; it is inescapable because of the range of impact; it is unknown because history doesn’t connect dots; and it is doubled-edged because his followers have wreaked so much havoc, often in his name.

His life and teaching simply drew people to follow him. He made history by starting in a humble place, in a spirit of love and acceptance, and allowing each person space to respond.

His vision of life continues to haunt and challenge humanity. His influence has swept over history bringing inspiration to what has happened in art, science, government, medicine, and education; he has taught humans about dignity, compassion, forgiveness, and hope.” -John Ortberg

Come Join us for new sermon series as we look at the impact of this person named Jesus of Nazareth.
