DUMC Contemporary Service Online Audio/Video

NOTE 4/30/2014 – We are aware of the difficulties that some are experiencing accessing files. Google imposes a daily limit on the number of times that files can be downloaded.  Since there is no workaround, we are looking into using another audio host.  We hope to complete this transition very soon, and ask for your patience in the interim.

This is the official home for audio from the 9:30 AM services.  The audio is primarily the sermons and announcements, but we include selected musical and other segments of the service when technically possible to do so.  Just click on the link for the week you want, and we will transport you to a folder with all files for that service, mostly in MP3 format, plus some occasional videos.  You can then click on the files that you want and download them (audio files), or view/download them (video files).  NOTE: If you have content from a service that you would like to share, please let me know.

On Youth Sunday, all three services are run entirely by the DUMC youth, including music by PAID-4 and the youth choir.  Youth also handle sermons, prayer, announcements, benediction and other elements of the service.  Audio for this week is a “best of” compilation from the three services.  The services also included Baptisms and the Rite of Confirmation, which is available as a video file.

It’s All About Love

On Mother’s Day, Pastor Mike discusses love, and its true meaning when the Bible uses the term “agape”.  Giving is what God is all about, and what His love is all about.

What Power Empowers You?

Pastor Mike continues to discuss transformation.  We don’t have the strength on our own to conform to the likeness of Christ.  But, like Mentos in a bottle of Coke, amazing things happen when we breathe in the power of the Spirit.

 

04/28/2013

04/28/2013

Pastor Mike

 

Conforming to the Likeness of Christ

Stubborn Doubt vs. Yielding Faith

03/31/2013

Pastor Mike

 

We Will Never Be the Same Again!

Pastor Mike

 

Living Water That Refreshes the Soul

NOTE: The first three songs appear as a single file this week.  They flowed so well, and the Spirit was moving in a way that I thought they should be presented as they occurred.

03/10/2013

Pastor Mike

 

Facing the Storms of Life

Jesus was in the boat when the sea raged and the wind howled.  And he’s in the boat with you too.

03/03/2013

02/24/2013

Dazzling or Dull?

Pastor Mike talks about The Transfiguration, and its lessons for our lives. Do you show the luster of God’s presence …or the lethargy of routine living?

02/03/2013

Pastor Mike

 

What Would You Do If You Ran Out of Wine?

Pastor Mike discusses the people involved at the Marriage at Cana.  The new wine is available to all, and is a symbol of God’s grace and forgiveness on the cross, a symbol of God’s power over death and the promise of new life, and a symbol of how our lives can be different.

01/27/2013

 

There is no audio from the service this week.

01/20/2013

NOTE:  The adult bell choir played a beautiful piece in this service, with a special guest cello performance.  We will include the audio for this if and when we can locate a usable recording.

01/06/2013

Pastor Mike

 

Are You Ready for a Great Journey?

Pastor Mike discusses The Epiphany.  Are you ready for the journey to see the King, and the epiphanies that will appear along the way?  Are you ready to return a different way, as the Magi did?  How has Jesus touched and blessed you?

12/30/2012

Pastor Mike

12/23/2012

Pastor Donna

 

Mary the Iconoclast

Pastor Donna discusses Mary as an image-breaker.  Mary invites us to see things the way they could be, and to find true joy in a new place.  And that place is within the gift of God’s Favor.

12/16/2012

Pastor Mike

 

Joe Who?

Pastor Mike discusses Joseph.  Though we know little about him, we can learn so much from what we do know.

12/09/2012

Pastor Mike

 

Prepare the Way

John the Baptist was a different kind of person.  As Christians who live by grace, we should be different too.  We’re going to be the ones who are odd to someone else.

12/02/2012

Pastor Mike

 

Are You Sure, God?

Pastor Mike lets us know that God has to throw an occasional brick at us to get our attention.  When the bricks come your way, remember that God wants you to respond.

 

NOTE: The recording of Night of Silence / Silent Night is from December 4, 2011.  Sounds of Faith performed the song again this week, but the recording had technical problems.  Because it is such a beautiful song, and was performed just as beautifully this year, I have included last year’s recording here.

11/25/2012

Pastor Mike

 

 

What does “King” mean to you?  Is Christ sovereign in your life?

11/18/2012

Pastor Mike

 

Offering a Harvest of Thanks

Pastor Mike shows us that we embody Thanksgiving by what we do, and what we give.  It’s not just a feeling – it’s an action.

11/11/2012

The Stephen Ministry

Pastor Donna explains the Stephen Ministry, and commissions our latest Stephen Ministers.

11/04/2012

What Do Your Clothes Say About God? – Part 2

The Apostle Paul says: “Clothe yourselves with love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony”.  God we pray that you would bless us with the ability to put on these new clothes.

10/28/2012

Pastor Mike

 

What Do Your Clothes Say About God? - Part 1

Pastor Mike urges us to wear the clothes of compassion, kindness, humility and gentleness.  When you get dressed in the morning, understand that these need to be put on as well, and worn throughout the day.

10/21/2012

Pastor Paul

 

Living Out of Our New Identity

10/14/2012

Pastor Mike

09/23/2012

Anthony Rogers

 

Always Be Ready

It is always an occasion for joy when a member of a congregation feels the call to ministry.  And so we rejoice that our own Anthony Rogers has felt the call and answered it …and today talks about always being ready to give a defense for our faith, with gentleness and respect.

09/16/2012

Pastor Mike

 

Are You Willing to Answer the Call

When Jesus calls you to drop your net and follow him, will you answer the call?

09/09/2012

Pastor Mike

 

Let’s Avoid the Eutychus Syndrome!

Pastor Mike draws on the story of Eutychus, who fell out of a third story window after falling asleep on Paul’s sermon.  While we need a nap occasionally, and we need a Sabbath to be refreshed, we cannot be a church asleep.

09/02/2012

Pastor Mike

 

 

“The yoke that Jesus places upon us is a yoke that is yoked to Him.  He is the one that is our strength.  He is the one that we draw from.  He is the one that will do the work in our lives and we will learn from Him.  If we are yoked with Him, if we are connected with Him, we find the rest and restoration and renewal that we need.”

08/26/2012

Pastor Donna

 

Couldn't You Just Scream?

“You really don’t need to go far to find people who need the light of Christ in their lives.  And that light is something that I know each and every one of you possess, and shines brightly in your hearts.”

The Unweary Runner

By waiting on the Lord, and drawing from His strength, we can become “unweary runners”, with the energy to enter into God’s eternity, never straying from the path that God sets before us.

07/01/2012

Pastor Mike

 

 

Pastor Mike uses the story of Joseph to offer encouragement for when life is the pits, and not quite a bowl of cherries.

 

NOTE: This was originally scheduled to be an outdoor service, but was moved indoors due to excessive heat.  However, the musical portion of the service did not change, so the music this week is an “unplugged” band consisting of four acoustic guitars.

06/17/2012

Marked By God

Welcome back Pastor Donna!  And thanks again to Kate for filling in again on drums, this time last minute (literally).

Abby, Chris, Meghan, Quinn, John and Sam discuss issues close to their hearts.

Youth Sunday!  Once a month during the school year, the PAID-4 youth group runs the music and other elements of the service, except the sermon.  However, once a year this service elevates to Youth Sunday, where the youth essentially run the entire service, with some minor assistance from the Youth Pastor.  Pretty amazing, when you think about it.  So take a moment and listen to what the young guys and gals of DUMC have to say.

3/6/2011

Pastor Mike

Check out “Jesus You’re Welcome In This Place”, which was the collaborative piece with the Youth Choir and Sounds of Faith. We also experimented with true recording-quality microphones on this song, so you might notice a difference in the way it sounds.  There is a very nice version of “Great God Medley” too.

 

2/27/2011

Pastor Mike

PAID-4… Pilot makes its debut… pardon the audio mix, very difficult on PAID-4 weeks because most of the band is not going through the sound system.  “Oh Draw Me Lord” is very nice.

 

2/20/2011

Pastor Mike

Check out “Your Grace Still Amazes Me”, which was the prayer from the loft.  “More and More” and “Come to the Cross” came out pretty well too.

 

 

In memory of Jason Southern, whose request for access to audio from the services was the inspiration for the ministry.
