Presented for your consideration on a truly contentious day:
Wednesday, October 14, 2020
This is the sermon for Sunday, October 11, 2020, based on Matthew 22:1-14. It is a complicated story of an invitation to a wedding feast, refusal, and repercussions. It calls us to live a certain way, strongly. Come and see. All are welcome.
Sunday, October 4, 2020
This is the sermon from October 4, 2020, based on Matthew 21:33-46. This is Jesus' parable about the landowner who builds a vineyard and the troublesome tenants who will not give the owner the part of the harvest that is due to him. It has a lot to say about us, about our relationship with God, and what God expects from us. Come and watch. All are invited
Wednesday, September 30, 2020
Sunday morning sermon for September 27, 2020, dealing with hard questions challenging Jesus' authority presented by the Temple leaders in Jerusalem, Jesus' hard question in return, and the parable that broke the impasse. This parable challenged the leadership's perceptions and challenges ours today. Come and watch.

Where does hate come from and how can we counter it? Let's explore together.
Please excuse the ringing phone that started right in the middle of this. Such is the nature of the live streamed message.
Sunday, August 16, 2020
Sunday, August 2, 2020
Sermon from August 2, 2020, based on 1 Corinthians 13:1-8. We will explore love and our need for it from Paul's perspective and, as this is part of our summer superhero sermon series, from the perspective of the Star Sapphires. There's plenty worth learning here. Come and watch. All are invited.
Thursday, June 4, 2020
A short message concerning what we can do together to assist our African
American brothers and sisters to push back against the sin of racism so
deeply baked into our society. It's a message of encouragement for
everyone and a call to action.

On Tuesday evening, April 14, 2020, we explored Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem, what it meant to be the Messiah, and head toward the culmination of Jesus' ministry on earth and all that means for us. Please join us Tuesday evenings at 8 p.m. on the J.S. Brooks YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCBxxX5sENGIcCowZ314locA?view_as=subscriber).
Tuesday, April 14, 2020
Tuesday, April 7, at 8 p.m., we picked up where we left off before Lent. We will be wrapping up our discussion of material leading up to the Passion, Death, and Resurrection of Jesus over the next few weeks.

We are going to explore Jesus as a miracle worker this week and see what that means for us this Lenten season when so much has been tossed up in the air by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Wednesday, March 18, 2020
On Tuesday, March 17, 2020, we continued our study of Jesus, using the book Jesus: The God Who Knows Your Name by Max Lucado. We explored Jesus as friend. He was a friend to his disciples, to the outcasts, to the overlooked, the powerless, and the lost. He is our friend as well. See what that means for us. If you like what you see and want to join in on Tuesday evenings, connecting with others interested in seeing how our faith is applicable to our daily lives and making a personal connection in the age of "social distancing," go to YouTube and subscribe at my J.S. Brooks channel and become part of the conversation. Here's the link: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCBxxX5sENGIcCowZ314locA?view_as=subscriber. . ~Rev. Jeff Snyder
