August 28th: "I'm Not So Sure About...Marriage and Sex"

Watch the Sermon here First United Presbyterian Church “I’m Not So Sure About…Marriage and Sex” Rev. Amy Morgan August 28, 2022 Ephesians 5:21-33 Be subject to one another out of reverence for Christ. 22 Wives, be subject to your husbands as you are to the Lord. 23 For the husband is the head of the wife just as Christ is the head of the church, the body of which he is the Savior. 24 Just as the church is subject to Christ, so also wives ought to be, in everything, to their husbands. 25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, 26 in order to make her holy by cleansing her with the washing of water by the word, 27 so as to present the church to himself in splendor, without a spot or wrinkle or anything of the kind-- yes, so that she may be holy and without blemish. 28 In the same way, husbands should love their wives as they do their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. 29 For no one ever hates his own body, but he nourishes and

August 21st: "I'm Not So Sure About...The Bible"

  Watch the sermon here First United Presbyterian Church “I’m Not So Sure About…The Bible” Rev. Amy Morgan August 21, 2022 John 1:1-14 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.   2 He was in the beginning with God.   3 All things came into being through him, and without him not one thing came into being. What has come into being   4 in him was life, and the life was the light of all people.   5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it.   6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.   7 He came as a witness to testify to the light, so that all might believe through him.   8 He himself was not the light, but he came to testify to the light.   9 The true light, which enlightens everyone, was coming into the world.   10 He was in the world, and the world came into being through him; yet the world did not know him.   11 He came to what was his own, and his own people did not accept him.   12 But to all who received

August 7th: "Faith"

  Watch the sermon here First United Presbyterian Church “Faith” Rev. Amy Morgan August 7, 2022 Hebrews 11:1-3 Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.   2 Indeed, by faith our ancestors received approval.   3 By faith we understand that the worlds were prepared by the word of God, so that what is seen was made from things that are not visible. By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to set out for a place that he was to receive as an inheritance; and he set out, not knowing where he was going.   9 By faith he stayed for a time in the land he had been promised, as in a foreign land, living in tents, as did Isaac and Jacob, who were heirs with him of the same promise.   10 For he looked forward to the city that has foundations, whose architect and builder is God.   11 By faith he received power of procreation, even though he was too old-- and Sarah herself was barren-- because he considered him faithful who had promised.   12 Therefore from o

Sunday, July 31st: "Greed and Gratitude"

  Watch the sermon here First United Presbyterian Church “Greed and Gratitude” Rev. Amy Morgan July 31, 2022 Luke 12:13-21 Someone in the crowd said to him, "Teacher, tell my brother to divide the family inheritance with me."   14 But he said to him, "Friend, who set me to be a judge or arbitrator over you?"   15 And he said to them, "Take care! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; for one's life does not consist in the abundance of possessions."   16 Then he told them a parable: "The land of a rich man produced abundantly.   17 And he thought to himself, 'What should I do, for I have no place to store my crops?'   18 Then he said, 'I will do this: I will pull down my barns and build larger ones, and there I will store all my grain and my goods.   19 And I will say to my soul, 'Soul, you have ample goods laid up for many years; relax, eat, drink, be merry.'   20 But God said to him, 'You fool!
