We are glad to be able to provide some recent sermons for you to listen to. We believe that corporate worship is to the Body of Christ what breathing is to the human body — a life-giving exchange! It is our primary service to God as disciples.

What’s more, as Presbyterians, we believe that proclamation of God’s Word is the central act of our worship service. So it follows that the best thing for the Body and for individual members is to be present together with God and one another, building relationships in worship.

These sermons are offered here not as a regular substitute for those who can come in person, but to help us spread the Word among those who cannot. So whether you are a potential visitor wanting to “test drive” the preacher, or a member who can’t come, or missed a service, or wants to hear a sermon again, we pray for God to bless you in the listening.
