Faith worship services, including the complete sermon, are recorded and archived for viewing on FACEBOOK at your convenience.

Christian Identity

“To believe in the light is to live into the lives we claim to be true. To make Christian an identity, not a nametag. To attempt to convince people of the truth of Christ with the love of our actions more than with the persuasiveness of our words. To make faith a state of living rather than a state of mind.”  Rev. Christopher Chaelain Samsen 3.14.22 on John 3:14-21

Blessing

“The church is a tent, not a temple. It is a signpost in the world of God’s presence and love, but only a signpost. It’s meant not to be about itself but about being a blessing to the world.”  Rev. Christopher Chatelaine-Samsen 3.5.21 on John 2:13-22

Mortality

“Our mortality is the circumstance in which we receive God’s love as God provides for our every need through the whole of creation, and through the lives of the companions God has put us with. And if that’s what Lent is about, then Lent is about rediscovering our deepest joy, which is to know our need, and to receive our lives as gifts of love.”  Rev. Christopher Chatelaine-Samsen 2.22.21 on Mark 1: 9-15

Suffering

“When you give your life for the sake of the world, it means you’re not alone. You’re part of a body, a fellowship, a communion of love that is making the world, our community, our families, and our lives, into what they were meant to be.”  Rev. Christopher Chatelaine-Samsen 2.28.21 on Mark 8:31-38

Transfiguration

“The story of the transfiguration is not just some sort of theological obscurity. It’s a call to recognize that our daily, regular old lives are caught up in something bigger than ourselves. That living faithfully and with the heart of the servant actually matters, actually means something, and isn’t for nothing.”  Rev. Christopher Chatelaine-Samsen 2.15.21 on Mark 9:2-9

Healing the Sick

“Times of selfless service are when we feel most alive, doing the things that mean something bigger than ourselves.”  Rev. Christopher Chatelaine-Samsen 2.7.21 on Mark 1:29-39

New Heaven and New Earth

“What matters? What is worth your time and resources? What ways can you use your energy to create a world worth living in? How can you invest in your family, your community, and your world, so that at the end of the day you know that it was something worth giving yourself to? How can we be part of making this world God’s home?” Rev. Christopher Chatelaine-Samsen 1.31.21 on Revelation 21:1-7

Healing the Blind Man

“That’s where the action is – in the dirt and the mud and the messiness. That’s where Jesus is most at home. That’s where the transformation happens. That’s where hope springs us. That’s where all things are being made new. And that’s where Jesus is inviting us to be as well.”  Christopher Chatelaine-Samsen 1.24.21 on Mark 8:22-26
