Riverside CRC Sermons
Sermons at Riverside CRC – Podcasts are available here, or by subscription, from Rev. Benjamin Browneye, Pastor of Riverside Christian Reformed Church.
Every week, I pray that we see the beauty of the Gospel in a new way; one that challenges and strengthens us. And that every person finds their faith built up once again, that they might go out into their week assured of the promises of God and eager to live for Him.
Our Sunday morning service finds a classically Reformed liturgical structure with a relaxed-traditional feel that is anchored in Christian community. So, be it jeans and a t-shirt or your Sunday best, you’ve got a place at Riverside as we sing our praises, lift our prayers, and hear from God’s Word. Oh, and expect to be warmly welcomed — whether you’re new or a founding member.
The hard parables hang together in one important way. You don’t get to be the Eden you anymore. You don’t get to be in Christ and then go on being self-serving. But that’s the stuff we like and it’s hard to give up. If a sermon, bible study, etc makes you uncomfortable, it’s God shining light on the self-serving Eden you.
The hard parable asks, if that’s what people are willing to do to secure their future in this life, what are you willing to do to secure your eternal future?
Christ’s flesh and blood in communion is the real food and real drink of real life, connecting us to – and filling us with God’s Spirit.
