Find the Lost

Luke 15 is often known as the “Lost” chapter of the Bible. It’s not because is was recently discovered in a cave overlooking a salty lake. This is a chapter about finding the lost. Today our worship will focus on the tender heart of our God who goes after those who do not know him.

Being a Christian isn't easy, but God will never leave us!

Count the Cost

If you’re going to build a house, you have to secure the loan. If you’re going on a trip, most people make sure they have enough money for food and lodging. This morning God is asking us to consider the cost of being his disciples. In this final sermon from our series – Weeks of Warning – we will consider just how much God is asking of us as we bear our cross for him through life.

Know Your Place

Pride is all around us these days. From Olympic and professional athletes to politicians running for public office, it isn’t difficult to find the proud. This Sunday God wants us to look to our own hearts and warns against pride. Jesus calls us to humbly serve those in need.

Wrong Mountain

God never intended his people to stay at Mt. Sinai. Moses was trembling with fear at the sight. There is nothing wrong with going to hear God’s law, but the final destination is Mt. Zion. We are there because of what Jesus has done. Don’t choose the wrong mountain.

Light a Fire

This Sunday we begin a new sermon series – Weeks of Warning. The Christian’s life will be marked by difficulties. The warnings aren’t meant to scare the faithful away, but so that the believers will be prepared to meet these challenges. Our first sermon will be on Faith’s Fire – God’s word doesn’t always unite. Sometimes it divides.

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Genesis is the historical account of the creation of the world. God makes of a number of new promises to Abram - including that he will be the Father of the Savior of the world.

Look Up

A couple weeks ago I was reminded of just how many stars there are in the sky on a camping trip with the Youth Group. God’s promise to Abraham was that his descendants would be as many as the stars. The writer to the Hebrews tells us that faith is the “sure certainty” of what God says. Let’s consider God’s promises and how we can chase away our doubts by looking up to God.

Teach Me How To Pray

Communication is vital these days. It can end conflicts even before they begin. Communiation is a skill that is becoming rarer these days. This is ironic since in 2016 there are so many ways to communicate. Communicating with our God is no less vital. In prayer we talk to God. To hear his response to go into his word.

Good Work

The Apostle Paul takes the temptations of work righteousness head on! He fights false doctrine with the piercing light of the gospel. There is no room for a dark heart where Christ reigns. Paul also redirects our energy to a life of thanks. What is a good work for the Christian? Watch and find out!
