    • January 6, 2019 “Lift Up Your Eyes, the King is Here!” Pastor Maribel Celiz
      • Scriptures: Isaiah 60: 1-6; Psalm 72: 1-7, 10-14; Ephesians 3: 1-12; and Matthew 2: 1-12.
      • God is not limited by time or space. The good news of Christ is available to everyone. Like Paul who came to know Christ in a vision, or the Magi who followed a star to the birthplace of Jesus, we are called to witness to the love and goodness of God in every time and place, by caring for all who are in need.

      • Scriptures: Isaiah 9: 2-7; Psalm 95; Titus 2: 11-14; and Luke 2: 1-10
      • This is a night for rejoicing – a night to sing a new song to God, a night to celebrate the salvation brought through the birth of Jesus, a night to embrace the light that shines in the darkness. God’s light and salvation shine forth through a child who will rule with justice and righteousness. This is a night to sing with all creation the glorious salvation of our God.

    • December 16, 2018 “Hope for the Nation” Pastor Maribel Celiz
      • Scriptures: Zephaniah 3: 14-20; Isaiah 12: 2-6; Philippians 4: 4-7; Luke 3: 7-18.
      • God is in our midst. Even as we await Christmas, God is with us, salvation is here, and Christ has already been born in our hearts. Even as we prepare to celebrate Christ being born anew, we are called to live fruitful lives today, to proclaim the One who delivers the lame and who gathers the outcast, our God, who is our strength and our shield, both now and forevermore. No wonder we are called to rejoice. God is in our midst! 
    • December 9, 2018 Sunday School Christmas Program “The Working Angel’s Guide to Christmas”
    • December 2, 2018 “The Signs Are Obvious” Pastor Maribel Celiz
      • Scriptures: Jeremiah 33: 14-16; Psalm 25: 1-10; Thessalonians 3: 9-13; and Luke 21: 25-36.
      • People, get ready! The time is coming. But time for what? Today we enter the season of Advent, a time for preparing for Christmas, preparing to receive Christ into our hearts and lives, even preparing for the time when Christ will come again. Time is a theme that runs throughout this liturgical season and this busy month. This is a season when time seems short and obligations seem long. Into this reality, our Advent scriptures remind us that time belongs to God, especially this time leading up to the celebration of Christ’s birth. We need to take care that our hearts aren’t dulled by the cares of the world – cares that cause us to waste time on things that don’t really matter. Advent calls us to open ourselves, to use this time to increase our faith, and to enrich our love in every day.
    • November 4, 2018 Guest Speaker Josie Gobel “Be Just, Be Green”
    • October 28, 2018 Special Music Performance by Singer/Songwriter Dan Holmes
    • Easter Sunday, 4/1/18 “He Lives!” Pastor Maribel Celiz
      • Scriptures:  Acts 10: 34-43; Psalm 118: 1-2, 14-24; 1 Corinthians 15: 1-11; and John 20: 1-18.
      • Evil may prevail for a day, but the life and the power of God are stronger than death; indeed, death has lost its sting. The steadfast love of God, spoken of by the psalmist, has raised Jesus from the dead. How ill we recognize our risen Savior? Jesus calls us each by name – a call to discipleship and service. The hymn “Christ the Lord Is Risen Today” says it all. Everything else is commentary.
