Preaching Sabbath Resource for GNJ Pastors

GNJ celebrates the hard work and resilience of our clergy persons during the COVID-19 pandemic. Lan Wilson, Director of Worship, has teamed up with a diverse group of GNJ pastors to offer full pre-recorded sermons for the entire Move Mountains series (recommended start date June 7) to give clergy a break from the pulpit, as needed.

 

Songs of the Season: An Advent Series

The long awaited coming of the Messiah is certainly something to sing about. This series of song-inspired sermons rings in the tradition of Advent with a culmination on Christmas Eve and charge to “Go Tell It” on the last Sunday of the year! For use during Advent. Click here for sermon series.

Three Kings: Epiphany Sunday

Just as God led the wise men to Jesus by the light of a star, God shines the light of hope for us, so we can follow where God leads us. For use during Epiphany. Click here for sermon series.

Telling Your Story

Stories are powerful. Long after stories happen, they continue to form us as we retell them. They shape communities. They hold us up during difficult times and they paint a picture of what could be. God has told a great story and continues to invite us into this ongoing story. For use in the Winter (January). Click here for sermon series.

Called to More: A Lenten Series on Wrestling with Sin

When we take a step back and look at our lives, we may find ourselves wondering, “Is this really it?” Are we just going through the motions or perhaps worse, living in chaos? This Lenten series explores the actions, habits, and systems that separate us from God and looks to the cross of Jesus to discover that we are called to so much more. For use during the Lenten season. Click here for sermon series.

What To Do When You Don’t Know What To Do

Jesus tells us, that in this life we will have trouble; but what do we do when we don’t know which way to turn, how to get out of the dark places and how to respond when God is telling us something? While the answer is not always clear…in Christ, there is always a way. For use in the Spring (after Easter). Click here for Sermon Series.

Move Mountains

This is a series about harnessing the power of faith in God…if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you can move mountains. How, as we begin to navigate back into society, can you connect with that power. For use in the Summer. Click here for Sermon Series. 

Jesus in the City

From bustling traffic to high rise buildings, cities are places that are full of life and full of their own unique joys and challenges. No matter where we call home, God is present and active in our context. This series explores life in the city and how to be a follower of Jesus in an urban setting. Click here for Sermon Series. 

Come to the Table

Throughout the Gospels, Jesus shared meals with his people. In a world where there is an increase of hate and dissension, as followers of Jesus, God calls us to make space for all of God’s children at the table. This series will help us see God as we are mindful about seeing one another. For use in the Early Fall (September-October). Click here for Sermon Series.

Tossing and Turning

All of us have things that keep us up at night, tossing and turning. What does the future hold for me? Does the Bible even talk about that? Is God too big to worry about my everyday life concerns? For use in the Late Fall (October-November). Click here for Sermon Series.
