In this message we take a look at the topic of service. How does God want us to serve each other and the world? This message also provides a quick introduction to the ministries of Union Church.
In this message we take a look at the topic of prayer: the who, what, when, where, how, and why of prayer. This message gives a good overview of the basics of prayer.
In this chapter Jesus comforts his followers right before he is arrested and taken off to be tried by the State. In this farewell speech, he gives special instructions about the Holy Spirit, whom he will send to be with his disciples after his departure. In the process, Jesus reveals a little bit of what the Holy Spirit does for the world and believers during this age.
In John 15 Jesus touches on the reason for our existence: to “bear fruit” by remaining in him. But what does he mean by bear fruit? And how does this work in our lives? This message seeks to explain what spiritual fruit is and how we produce it.
What does love for Jesus look like? Is it just a feeling, or is it something else? In this section of John’s Gospel, Jesus tells us what it means to love him.
In this message we are taking a break from our series in the Gospel of John to look at the topic of abortion. Specifically, we’re addressing what seems to be the most important–if not the only–question: Is the unborn human?
If the unborn are human, then shouldn’t they be afforded the same rights as already-born humans–including the right not to be killed unjustly? We explore this argument in depth, looking at common questions such as, “Shouldn’t abortion be available in the case of rape?” “What does God think of me if I’ve had an abortion?” among others.
This passage touches on one of the most controversial topics in the Bible: whether or not Jesus is the only way to God/heaven/eternal life.
In this passage Jesus gives us the distinguish mark of the church: love. Well, it’s supposed to be the distinguishing mark. And why? Because people will take notice of a church that loves like Jesus did. In this message we look at what love is, how it is sacrificial and even ugly sometimes–and how God empowers us to love.
In an act of great humility (and humiliation!), Jesus stooped to wash his disciples feet–something that was unheard of in a leader-follower relationship. This sets the tone for the Christian life. If our Master was willing to do the most menial and task, we should be too. This sort of teaching inspires us and challenges us to change the way we look at our position in this world.
In this message from Christmas Eve, Duane R. Nisly, one of our leaders, expounds the message of the birth of Jesus from Luke’s Gospel, where the angels announced the good news of great joy, the birth of a Savior for humanity. Duane breaks down this concept of great joy surrounding the coming of Jesus on a rescue mission for humanity.
