Are You Sleeping?  Click here Click title to view sermon 1 Thessalonians 5: 1–11
Summary:  Whether we are sleeping or awake, Christ will return like a thief in the night. No one knows when that will be, so we have to be prepared at all times. Paul's message to the Thessalonians is to stay sober, rest well at night and don't sleep in the light. Like the first-century church, we need to stay awake so that we don't miss seeing the Lord's work that surrounds us.

One, Shy of Burying It  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 25: 14–30
Summary:  We as a church need to see our “talents” not so much as the “gifts and graces” of individual members, but as our physical assets, and to ask ourselves if we are simply “burying” them, or using them in a way that gives physical expression to the kingdom that we know is coming.

Put It in the Bank  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 25: 14–30
Summary: This tale told to those early disciples lands on us just as hard as it did on them. It forces us to ask ourselves, What kind of servants shall we be? What has God given us to use? How shall we use it? What accounting will we give the Master, when he returns?

The Ultimate Survivor Show  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 25: 14–30
Summary: In suggesting that humans might be voted off the earth on the basis of what we have done to it, Mark Twain puts the message of the story of the talents into graphic perspective. We have built many impressive earthly kingdoms. But it is the kingdom of God upon the earth that we have been commissioned to build. We have not only been commissioned. We have been empowered. The God who calls us to build has given us both blocks and the blueprint. If God has voted us in, then we must not by our actions or inaction vote ourselves out.

If I Had a Million Dollars ...  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 25: 14–30
Summary: With the parable of the talents, Jesus makes a comparison to the kingdom of heaven. How the slaves used the talents entrusted to them speaks to 1) the nature of the kingdom of God; 2) their understanding of who the master is; and 3) their responsibility regarding the talents they had been given.
