As we begin preparing for our spring corporate sharing service in a couple of weeks, we will take a look at Psalm 134. The Lord blesses us through His presence and through creation. We bless Him through our service and through our darkness.
Jesus’ letter to the church of Laodicea has significant application to the church of today. Let us have ears to “hear what the Spirit says.” Revelation 3:14-22
Mark's primary ministry is to develop and disciple national church leaders and teachers around the globe. Using the Walk Thru the Bible curriculum as a tool for training, he and his wife Cathy are part of seeing the Gospel advance worldwide. They have been part of our mission partner team for over 25 years.
In our Palm Sunday service last week we considered how we see Jesus and what may currently be getting in the way of us seeing him clearly. This week in our Easter service we will follow up with "Seeing Jesus, part 2", taken from John 12:44-50. In doing so we will explore why it is important for us to see and understand that Jesus is truly alive.
As we use this Palm Sunday to begin preparation for Easter, we will revisit Christ’s final entrance into Jerusalem before his death. In doing so we will consider the various ways he was seen and responded to by those who witnessed this event. And, ultimately, we will use this as an opportunity to reflect on our own lives and ask what might be preventing us from seeing and responding to Jesus for who he is. Please join us this Sunday as we consider “Seeing Jesus”, taken from John 12:20-26.
This week, Pastor Ben will bring our next message in our sermon series, "Looking at Church: House Rules," from I Timothy 6:11-16.
God has much to say about our relationships with family--those related by blood and those by Christ. Godliness is displayed when we serve those He has placed in our lives. This week Ben will share with us Paul's teachings in I Timothy 5:1-16 on this matter with a message entitled, "Looking at Church: Family Relationships."
How should what we believe affect the way we act? What does the scripture say? We will look at how this is addressed by Paul in I Timothy 4.
As Pastor Ben continues our "Looking at Church" sermon series, this week his message will focus on the roles of "Men and Women" in the church as seen in I Timothy 2:8-15, 3:8-13.
This Sunday, Pastor Ben will continue our "Looking at Church" sermon series with a message focusing on Evangelism from I Timothy 2:1-7.
Each year at this time we kick off our Elder selection process. We will do so this Sunday with 1 Timothy 3:1-7 (see below) as the next installment in our "Looking at Church" sermon series. This passage offers a great reminder of the qualities necessary to serve as an Elder.
This Sunday's sermon will be the second in our new series from 1 Timothy entitled Looking at Church. Paul is writing to the young pastor Timothy, his child in the faith, charging and entrusting him to keep pure the precious Gospel of Jesus Christ.
This Sunday we will begin a new sermon series entitled Looking at Church. Have you ever wondered why church is important or what church is supposed to be like? Why do we do the things we do in church and what is it that God cares about when it comes to church? In 1 Timothy, the apostle Paul writes to the young pastor Timothy to answer these types of questions. As we take a look at this book together over the next several weeks, we will see God's heart for his church and his desire to use each and every one of us to advance his kingdom through his church. Please join us as we jump in this week to look at key foundations of the church in 1 Timothy 1:1-11.
As we get closer to resuming our regular weekly gathering times we will look at Psalm 133 this Sunday. This psalm serves as a helpful reminder of who we want to be and how we want to relate to one another as a church family. In the spirit of new year's resolutions, our sermon is titled "Resolving to Dwell in Unity"and will help us to remember how much the Lord enjoys seeing his children love and serve one another as the body of Christ.
