AUDIO SERMONS

Please notice that most weeks have two audio links:

  • Sermon

  • Out on a Limn*”--This is a brief segment near the beginning of our worship where we prepare ourselves for each week's “big idea.”  We do this by raising thought-provoking questions, considering the implications for our lives, whetting our appetites, giving visual and practical handholds for the concepts, etc. Due to the visual nature and/or participatory aspects of some “Limns,” they may not be included as audio downloads below--sometimes, you just had to be there.

*limn--“to describe, illuminate or depict by painting or drawing”
