Christ the King: Last Sunday after Pentecost—November 22, 2009

Preacher: Pastor Jeff Lilley
Summary: Today is Christ the King Sunday, but what is a king? If you were a king and could have anything you wanted, what would you want? Jesus gave everything to the poor. We call Jesus king because he brings love for each of us.

Time after Pentecost • Lectionary 33—November 15, 2009

Preacher: Pastor Jeff Lilley
Summary: In today’s Gospel, Jesus and the disciples are looking at the huge buildings of the Temple in Jerusalem, and Jesus tells them they will all be destroyed. This would be very scary, but Jesus says they should not worry because God will be with them. Our world can be scary too, but none of this matters. God has promised to be with us, and we are thankful we have a God is like this.

Time after Pentecost • Lectionary 32—November 8, 2009

Preacher: Pastor Jeff Lilley
Summary: In today’s Gospel, we hear about a woman who put two cents in the offering. You can’t buy anything with two cents, but if I give you this gold dollar, you can buy a lot. Is the dollar worth more? Jesus says that the woman’s two cents is worth more because she gave everything she had. She was like Jesus who gave everything on the cross. As children, you may not have much, but you can give love and friendship.

All Saints Day—November 1, 2009

Preacher: Pastor Diane Martinson-Koyama
Summary: Yesterday was Halloween, and you had fun dressing up. That name come from the word “hallowed” that you know from the Lord’s Prayer, and it means “holy” or “saint,” like in All Saints that we celebrate today. Saints show God’s love, and we know that God is stronger than any scary character, so we can have fun on Halloween.

Reformation Sunday—October 25, 2009

Preacher: Pastor Jeff Lilley
Summary: Many years ago “Marty” was sent to college to become a lawyer, but he got scared during a storm and became a priest. He read the Bible, asked many questions, and caused a big stir. Many people listened to his ideas about God, and the Reformation began. This was Martin Luther, and because of him, we can be excited about God every day.

Time after Pentecost • Lectionary 29/Children's Sabbath—October 18, 2009

Preacher: Pastor Jeff Lilley
Summary: In today’s Gospel James and John ask Jesus to sit on his right and left—to be the greatest. Jesus says that first they must be servants—the least. It’s like a caterpillar—a little bug that becomes a beautiful butterfly. Children like you may not be powerful, but you are beautiful in God’s eyes.

Time after Pentecost • Lectionary 28—October 11, 2009

Preacher: Pastor Jeff Lilley
Summary: Today’s Gospel story about Jesus and the rich man raises the question: Is money a problem? Not as long as it doesn’t distract us from God.

Time after Pentecost • Lectionary 27—October 4, 2009

Preacher: Pastor Jeff Lilley
Summary: Today is the commemoration of St. Francis of Assisi. He grew up rich and happy, but one day he met a beggar. His heart was moved, and he gave away his money. His friends thought he was crazy, but he had realized that, for him, living in poverty brought him closer to God. He also came to love nature and animals.
