The sermon in this video is based on 1 Peter 2:4-9. Pastor Hoogervorst apologizes for not reading the text before the sermon in this video. Please do so here or in the service folder before listening to the sermon.

4 As you come to him, the living Stone—rejected by humans but chosen by God and precious to him— 5 you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 6 For in Scripture it says:

“See, I lay a stone in Zion,
    a chosen and precious cornerstone,
and the one who trusts in him
    will never be put to shame.”

7 Now to you who believe, this stone is precious. But to those who do not believe,

“The stone the builders rejected
    has become the cornerstone,”

8 and,

“A stone that causes people to stumble
    and a rock that makes them fall.”

They stumble because they disobey the message—which is also what they were destined for.

9 But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. 10 Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.

When we went to church to record this weekend's service we discovered that the church's sound system had been damaged by the same lightning strike that also damaged the school's phone system this past Monday. We are working with our insurance company to get these systems repaired and up and running. Until we do all phone calls to the church and school will be routed to Pastor Hoogervorst's cell phone or you can email our staff. We hope to have, at least, a temporary fix for the sound system by this weekend, so we can continue recording services in the church.


This weekend's service comes to you from Pastor Hoogervorst's den and contains the sermon, prayer and Lord's prayer.

While this Maundy Thursday we cannot gather to receive the sacrament of our Lord’s precious body and blood, we will use this study to gain appreciation for the order of service or liturgy that we use to celebrate this feast.

We will offer this class online on Thursday, April 8 at 10 am or 6:30 pm or Friday, April 9 at 10 am or 6:30 pm. Please see our the home page  to find instructions for logging on to one of these online classes. Otherwise please feel free to download the materials here and work through the class on your own. Please also feel free to contact the pastors with any questions.

In this Palm Sunday study, we marvel at the way Jesus entered Jerusalem. He did not come in the way a high-profile person might like to make an entrance. His much different entrance shows us the kind of king he came be for us and the world. Hossana! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Hossana!

Jesus will raise us from death to life. The crown jewel of the coming kingdom is the resurrection of the dead. One day, Jesus will defeat the last enemy (1 Corinthians 15:27) and life will reign again in our new Eden with God. On our Lenten walk to Calvary, the Church sees the Savior come face to face with death and defeat it completely. During our Lenten walk, the Prayer of the Day asks God to help us remember that Jesus, who is resurrection and life, has made us heirs of eternal life.


Did you ever have an important announcement or exciting news to share with friends or colleagues, but after sharing the information it didn’t seem like they were that interested or impressed? Instead of taking it seriously or even acknowledging it did they quickly turn the conversation to matters that were more important to them? As you go through these study questions think how Jesus must have felt about his followers’ response to his big announcement. Notice how Jesus, instead of being angered by their response, uses the opportunity to teach them an important lesson about what it means to be great.
