I was unable to get the sermon recorded for this Sunday morning.  In its place, I am posting up the Sunday night sermon from the community Lenten service for those who would like to hear it.  Click on the link here to listen to it or on the Community Lenten Service message in the player on the right.  I will also post the notes from the sermon on the 24th below as well (FYI, these notes have nothing to do with the Lenten sermon at all).

Sunday Morning Sermon for 2/10/13

I will be catching up on posting sermons. If you are seeing this after April 2013, then this doesn’t make any sense at all perhaps, but I am postdating the posts so that they will stay in the right order and on the right dates. I have had some computer issues that I have been working on so that I am able to do the audio posting in a more timely fashion, but it has resulted in a two month backlog of sermons. I will be getting them up shortly. Thanks to all of you who listen for being patient in the meantime. This is a continuation of our series about our church values/beliefs.  Click on the title for the notes below to go to the sermon audio or select the correct message from the player on the right hand side of the page here.

Sunday Morning Sermon for 2/3/13

As much as I like the way the new site that hosts the sermons seems to work, and the fact that it is totally free; I am a little confused about trying to post the audio for the site here so you can listen to it directly.  The link below will give you the option to download the sermon directly and/or listen to it, but it will open a new window of some kind.  If that doesn’t suit you, try going to the site hosting the sermons and listening to it there (the most recent sermon I upload will always be at the top of the list) by selecting the sermon for this date in the player.  Alternately, you can select the sermon for this date from the player window in the sidebar at the top right hand side of the page and play it without leaving here that way.  Notes are posted below.
