Preaching from the story of John the Baptist and the crowds that went out to him in the wilderness, Peter showed us how people from all walks of life recognized their separation from God and wanted to be reconciled to their Creator. John did not preach for personal gain. When pointing to Jesus, he told…
Wise men came seeking Jesus – and they still do! The wise men who came to Bethlehem followed a star that had told them of the birth of Jesus. God had spoken to them in a language they could understand. So we who seek to follow God’s lead need to have patience and faith, but…

On this Sunday of Joy, Jan Waterschoot delivered a beautiful message about the importance of rejoicing in our salvation.
Our interim pastor, Peter, brought us his first sermon on the topic of John the Baptist as portrayed in Mark’s gospel. He reminded us that the way to prepare for God’s coming is through repentance. John the Baptist showed the way for sinners who did not want to live separated from God.

After 18 years of faithful service to Trinity Church Eindhoven, Francis and Barbara gave their last sermon before retirement today. Barbara delivered a beautiful prayer based on the first chapter of Paul’s letter to the Ephesians, while Francis brought a potent message regarding Jesus’ teaching on The Sheep and the Goats from Matthew 25.
Joan Roach led an interactive session this week about the Parable of the Talents. She challenged the congregation to think of what “talents” (blessings of any form) we can put at the feet of our Lord and offer in service.
