Sermons

From earliest times, the church has gathered on the Lord’s Day for the proclamation and exposition of the Word and the celebration of the Sacraments. The Reformed tradition has emphasized the importance of the Lord’s Day as the time for hearing the Word and celebrating the Sacraments in the expectation of encountering the risen Lord, and for responding in prayer and service.

The church confesses the Scriptures to be the Word of God written, witnessing to God’s self-revelation. Where that Word is read and proclaimed, Jesus Christ the Living Word is present by the inward witness of the Holy Spirit. For this reason the reading, hearing, preaching, and confessing of the Word are central to Christian worship.

Selections for reading in public worship are guided by the seasons of the church year, pastoral concerns for our congregation, events and conditions in the world, and specific program emphases of our church. Use of the Revised Common Lectionary ensures a broad range of readings as well as consistency and connection with the universal Church.

The preached Word, or sermon, is based upon the written Word. It is a proclamation of Scripture in the conviction that through the Holy Spirit, Jesus Christ is present to the gathered people, offering grace and calling for obedience. Preaching requires diligence and discernment in the study of Scripture, the discipline of daily prayer, cultivated sensitivity to events and issues affecting the lives of the people, and a consistent and personal obedience to Jesus Christ.
