Sermons

Sermons at Pearl seek to thoughtfully engage the ancient and provocative stories, poems, and letters in the Bible. The act of the sermon at Pearl provides space for pondering the sacred; it’s an opportunity to consider the mystery and love of God, to whom the Bible points. The sermon is this beautiful moment in the week to think deeply, to consider, to be stirred, challenged, encouraged, and inspired to bountifully live.

Below, you can learn about our current sermon series, listen to some of our most recent sermons, and subscribe to our sermons.
