The Gospel of Luke: A Story for Sinners and Sufferers

Previous Sermon Series: When Mess Meets Mercy

Explore the varied ways in which God magnifies His mercy in the midst of the messes we often make of our lives.

In the book of 1 Samuel, we see that mess-making is all too familiar to the people of God. See, God desired to be Israel’s King, but Israel rejected His rule preferring a tangible, human king like the surrounding nations. This brought Israel a world of trouble. Before we can come down hard on Israel and dismiss their actions as foreign to ourselves. Let’s take time to consider how we too are tempted to eject God from His throne in our hearts and lives.

As we do, we will be encouraged that in mercy God would work in and through the mess Israel made for themselves by eventually providing David, a man after God’s own heart to serve as the nation’s greatest (albeit imperfect) king. Ultimately, God would magnify His mercy by sending the Son of David, Jesus, to rescue us from the messes we, too, make by rejecting God as King!

One church, three expressions

A church is not a place but a people in whom Jesus’ grace finds expression. We have the joy of seeing Jesus express His grace in three unique locations.



West Seattle

What we value

The Table

Jesus leverages ordinary moments for extraordinary purposes. So, we value turning our tables into places of grace, community, and mission.

The Towel

Jesus came not to be served but to serve. So, we value serving one another as well as our neighbors both near and far.

The Tourniquet

Our deepest wounds are worship wounds. So, we value the gospel’s ability to bring healing to the deep places of our lives.

The Toast

Life is hard and can be discouraging. So, we value honoring, encouraging, and celebrating evidences of grace in one another’s lives.
