  1. Title: Blind Bartimaeus
    Mark 10:46-25
    Preacher: Pastor Tom Zucconi

    In today’s gospel lesson from Mark 10 we have our last healing miracle where Jesus asks the blind man what he wanted Jesus to do for him. This question of Jesus sounds contradictory to the criticism of the “transactional relationship” of faith we’ve heard about the past two weeks. It sounds like an invitation to ask for something! And it is! So why the abrupt 180? What is Jesus’ question behind the question? Join us this morning as we learn more about asking Jesus to do something for us—at least in a sanctified way!

  2. Title: Eternally Motivating
    Mark 10:23-31
    Preacher: Pastor Tom Zucconi

    Today’s text from Mark 10 is all about motivations in our relationship with others and with Jesus. Why do we do what we do? To impress others? Purity of heart? To earn God’s love and respect? Get our own way? Why? Whatever the reason, we know we don’t always do things with the best of motivations or intentions. It was the same for the disciples and they were with Jesus all the time! In today’s text, Jesus addresses the misguided motivations of the disciples and in so doing, addresses ours as well. Welcome to all who worship today!

  3. Title: The One Thing Lacking
    Mark 10:23-31
    Preacher: Pastor Tom Zucconi

    Of all the people who ever came to the feet of Jesus, this young man in today’s text is the only one who went away worse than he came! How did this happen? Could it happen to you or me? With everything in his favor, and great potential within, the young man struggled with a superficial view of spirituality, viewing his relationship with God more as a transaction where his good works would earn him eternal life rather than where he would receive it as the free gift of God. Do you ever approach God “transactionally,” looking for God to credit your “heavenly” bank account? How can we avoid the young man’s mistakes?

  4. Title: The Word First
    Text: Mark 10; Matthew 15; Mark 6
    Preacher: Pastor Tom Zucconi

    Today’s lesson in the Gospel of Mark finds the disciples once again the center of attention - and, like many ties before, it’s not for a good reason. Again and again, they display a hardness of heart, failing to grasp the importance of grace in their lives and in their relationships with others. (Turn away the children? Who turns away the children from Jesus?!) So then, what is a follower of Jesus to do? If the disciples, who are with Jesus all the time, are constantly messing up, what about you and me? How do we protect our heart and life a life infused with God’s grace? Let’s find out! Welcome to all who worship with us today!

  5. Title: Living Sacrifices
    Text: Mark 9:49-50; Romans 12:1-2
    Preacher: Pastor Tom Zucconi

    In the book of Romans, the Apostle Paul uses the adverb “therefore” four times. Therefore means “for that or this purpose,” indicating an expectation of action or result, at least in the case of this letter. Romans 12:1-2 is the fourth “therefore” and it is where the disciples of Jesus are challenged to dedicate themselves to a life of following Christ. What does this “dedication” entail and how does this happen? How is our dedicated life like the “living sacrifice” of Mark 9 from today’s Gospel lesson? Join us this morning as we discover this and apply it to our life of faith! Welcome to all who worship with us! Music licensed through CCLI # 198753 (copyright) and # 20778564 (streaming)
