The Pentecost Service at Christ Church includes a sermon from Fr. Keith Allen from the first letter to the Corinthians, chapter 12. We need the ministry and power of the Holy Spirit both in our individual lives and in the Church to remain on mission, unified in the purpose of incarnating Jesus' life and love and redemption to a world in need.
Deacon Kim Allen teaches from John 15 how Jesus expresses His love to the disciples and to us. We can live in the fullness of His love and joy by abiding in Him, demonstrating our trust in His goodness by our obedience.
Fr. Keith Allen teaches on Good Shepherd Sunday from John 10, that Jesus is the good and true Shepherd. Not only has Jesus provided the sacrifice of laying down His life to enable our reconciliation with God, He seeks that we will know the fullness of who He is and the power of living a resurrected life through Him.
Fr. Keith teaches from Luke 24 and how Jesus appeared to the disciples following His resurrection. He loves to make Himself known to all who are seeking Him; to give courage for disbelief, help in trouble, and comfort in fear.
Bishop Neil Lebhar visits CCVB and teaches how Jesus gives us hope, the promise of heaven, and life with Him. He became the sacrifice for the sin-stained world by crucifixion, and the resurrection provides proof of the Father's approval of that sacrifice.
