Epiphany Sale

Did you see all the TV’s marked down on Monday for the holiday?  I didn’t either!  Isn’t it great!  There is no commercial aspect to Epiphany.  I suppose you are wondering what exactly is Epiphany.  This Greek word means reveal.  During the Epiphany season of the church year we look at how the world found out and still finds out that Jesus is God …that Jesus is the Savior of the world.

Home for the Holidays

In the prophesy God sees his people as a small child that he would do anything for. No matter what, God’s people strayed away from him. In his last effort he sends his son to call his people home. This Christmas hear God’s call to you, “Come home!”

Hedge

How much more can you take? At what point should you give up? It’s questions like these that many Christians face down on a daily basis. Before we get into a contest of suffering, let’s hear what our God has to say on the topic. There are many who refuse to have anything to do with Christmas because of the suffering in the world. It is for that very reason that Jesus was sent – to rescue the world from sin and offer an eternity that is better by far! Join us this Sunday as we continue our journey to the cradle with a look at Job.

See The Trees

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! We begin a new church year with the first Sunday in Advent. Hear the call to prepare your hearts. Jesus is coming! Don’t worry, we’ll help you get ready this year. I won’t be personally coming over to help trim your tree, but you will hear from John the Baptist. His cry in the wilderness still rings today: REPENT! Join us this Sunday as we begin our journey to the cradle. It is there that we will find the new born king.

More or Less

We have so much to be thankful for this year. What if God has blessed us with LESS and not more this year? Should we still be thankful? The answer is yes in Jesus. Join us to find out how we can be thankful even when God gives us less.

For the King

A passing glance at the news and current events would show one thing – no one seems to be in control. On this Christ the King Sunday we remember that Jesus is, indeed, in control of the world. He does so for the good of his church. Join us this Sunday as we close out the church year worshiping Christ the King.

Paradise Restored

It doesn’t take very long before we get tired. We are tired physically, running ragged on our frantic American rat race to nowhere. We are tired emotionally. This is especially dangerous because too many of us go looking for rest in physically harmful ways – like drugs or alcohol. Finally, we as a nation are spiritually exhausted because precious few know that Jesus is the only place to find rest for our weary souls.

Mina Details

One of the more confusing topics surrounding the Bible is the end of the world.  It sounds hard to believe, doesn’t it?  Won’t the sun come up tomorrow just like it has every day since God started it on its daily march?  It will, unless God commands it to stop.  The Bible is clear that the world will end when God ends it.  More importantly will you be ready when he does?  What will you say as you stand before him?

Easy Choice

Life is full of choices. The life of the Christian is full of choices, but the hardest choice was the one that God made when he chose the world. He chose you because he loves you. All the other choices after that are in response to his incredible love for you.

Companionship

The Reformation of the Christian church brought many welcome changes. The greatest of these was a spotlight on the gospel of Jesus. There were also many societal benefits. One of those was a highlight of God’s design in marriage. Join us this morning as we go back to the beginning to see God’s plan for the perfect marriage

Use Your Time

This week we continue our stewardship series, a look at the family of believers. Last week we saw our identity – one of God’s children, a son or daughter of the King of the Universe. This Sunday we’ll examine what we do with our time and the struggles that go all with it.

Son or Daughter

God calls his people from the nations.  They weren’t his people, but now they are.  God reserves the glory and accomplishments for himself.  God calls you his child.  The only question left for the Christian is why?  Why would God love the unlovable?  Why would God love me?  The answer is that he loves us.  God’s love doesn’t need a reason; it is marvelous to behold, truly divine.  Join us as we look at God’s love using the prophet Hosea and his family.  The family portrait is shocking.

Persist in Prayer

Never give up! That’s easy to say when there is a goal in mind, when we can see progress. That’s not so easy when it comes to prayer. How do we know that God hears our cries for help? We have his promise. This Sunday we’ll look at God’s instructions for prayer. Never give up

Trustworthy God

Would you trust Crazy Bob’s Autos or Flow Honda with the purchase of your next car? If you needed a sitter for the kids would you ask the person next to you in the checkout line at Food Lion or a trusted friend or family member? This Sunday we’ll see that God gives you his word. That’s something you can always trust.

Abundant Love

“Your’re just the worst!”  Seriously, as each of stands before our God, we can honestly say these words.  The reason is that we don’t need to compare ourselves to each other.  We compare ourselves to God.  God is the only one who can save us.  We held our church picnic yesterday.  God blessed us with a wonderful day!

Wise Up

There is a cost to everything in life.  When it comes to learning in the school of hard knocks there are only two ways to learn.  From your pain or someone else’s pain.  Which would you choose?  We finish out our four week series Weeks of Warning under the theme Cost.  Jesus tells us that life under his cross of suffering will have a very real cost to it.  That doesn’t mean it isn’t worth it.  The warning is that it won’t always be easy.  The comfort is that we are never alone with him by our side.

Humble

Sinful pride can fill the heart of a Christian to the brim.  This doesn’t leave much room for God’s love.  We continue our series this Sunday – Weeks of Warning: Humility.

Narrow Door

The way to heaven is narrow. Although the door is narrow, it is open to all, and the saints will come from all nations to behold the glory of the Lord. Jesus is that narrow door. Join us this Sunday as we continue our series Weeks of Warning: Narrow

Division

Four weeks of warnings for Christians begins on this Sunday! The life of faith will be marked by difficulties. These warnings are given so that the believer will be prepared to meet these challenges with the confidence of the cross. This Sunday we will see that the Word of God doesn’t always unite—it also divides. The living and active Word of God does not bring peace between believers and unbelievers, but division. Where is the comfort? The final purpose is the salvation of believers.
