August Sermons and Upcoming Events


Have you ever felt like you are outside of the “in” crowd? Feeling excluded, overlooked or unworthy can make it difficult to fit in or to feel at home. Chapters 7 and 8 of Luke’s gospel chronicles Jesus’ ministry with those on the so-called “outside.”

What can we learn from these stories and from Jesus’ call to turn the inside out and the outside in?

How can we better understanding our feelings of exclusion?

How can we become more aware of those who feel excluded or overlooked by the Church?


Join Pastor Blake at Morning Glory this August as we journey through this series together! 

8/6 – The Worthy (Luke 7:1-10)

8/13 – The Tormented (Luke 8:26-35)

8/20 – The Humble (Luke 7:36-48)


What are the essentials of a “great life” with God? 

How do they impact our daily lives? 

And how do we go about practicing them?  

When Jesus was asked these questions, he didn’t give an elaborate speech on what we need to believe, or recite a rational creed of propositions that we need to adopt.  Instead, he gave two simple commands to follow in our behaviors and actions.  1800 years later, the founder of Methodism John Wesley laid these out as three simple rules for Christians to follow, and they have remained at the heart of our practice of faith since then.
