Current Sermon Series

Join us this Sunday, February 5, at 10:30 AM, for Pastor Nate Wilks’ first sermon
from our new series, Romans: Righteousness Revealed.

I’d spent over an hour winding through a cave with my family, but being 6’3” has disadvantages when passages give way to short and narrow openings meant for someone the size of my then 8-year-old.  As I hunched over, desperately trying to make it on my own, my lamp went out. It was narrow, damp, suffocating, and now pitch dark. All I could do was call for help. Desperate, exhausted, wondering how I’d get out of the darkness. Until a glimmer of light and a voice in the distance, “Come this way!” Good news! My way through was revealed.

We live in a world awash in the darkness of sin. Desperate, exhausted, often wondering, “How will I get out” of pain, of hurt, of guilt and shame. All too often, the human heart tries to escape the darkness on its own.  

In Romans, the apostle Paul speaks and shines the light of the gospel, showing us both our need and God’s solution: Righteousness Revealed, through faith in Christ.

Join us as we begin a year-and-a half-long journey together through Romans, starting February 5, asking the question, What is the Purpose of the Gospel? from Romans 1:1-7. Below is a preview of each mini-series in Romans through the end of spring 2023.:

• February 2023: Righteousness Revealed – Romans 1:1-17
• Lent 2023: Missing the Mark – Romans 1:18-3:20
• April/May 2023: Justified! – Romans 3:21-5:21
• May/June 2023: New Life in Christ – Romans 6-7

To help you prepare, the scripture for this Sunday will be:

Romans 1:1-7 (ESV)

Paul, a servant of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle, set apart for the gospel of God, which he promised beforehand through his prophets in the holy Scriptures, concerning his Son, who was descended from David according to the flesh and was declared to be the Son of God in power according to the Spirit of holiness by his resurrection from the dead, Jesus Christ our Lord, through whom we have received grace and apostleship to bring about the obedience of faith for the sake of his name among all the nations, including you who are called to belong to Jesus Christ,

To all those in Rome who are loved by God and called to be saints:

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
