God’s Provisions Are Always Enough

Sunday, October 7th, 2018 ~ World Communion Sunday

When it comes to God we can question God, no problem, but when questions become doubt, a lack of trust in God, that is a problem. The good news is, even when we are struggling with trusting God, God has not left us nor forsaken us. God loves us and provided for us. We know this to be true because at the Lord’s Table we see that God’s provisions are always enough.

We do apologize, but due to technical difficulties, no audio was captured for this service.

A Better Way

Sunday, September 30th, 2018

Wisdom is the combination of Faith plus Works. Faith and works are not inconsistent with one another, but they fit together like a hand in a glove. Show me your works and I will show you your faith. The two are inseparable.

Simple Math

Sunday, September 23rd, 2018

Wisdom is when Faith and Works go together like a hand in a glove. Wisdom doesn’t see “either/or”, “black or white”. Wisdom looks for a third way, a better way, the Kingdom way — all for the glory of God. Amen.

Tongues of Fire

Sunday, September 16th, 2018

It only takes a spark to get a fire going, and soon all those around can warm up in its glowing; that’s how it is with God’s love, once you’ve experienced it: you spread God’s love to everyone, you want to pass it on.

Can Faith Save You?

Sunday, September 9th, 2018

Jesus once said that you can tell the nature of a tree by the fruit that it produces. We betray what we believe in, we betray our true faith by the decisions we make and lives that we live.

The Power of Words

Sunday, September 2nd, 2018

We use words to express ourselves; to convince and convict, to describe, name, blame, and label. We use words to win arguments, expound a point, explain things into or out of existence, persuade, console, and counsel. We use words to announce and denounce. We use words to ask someone to marry, to declare war or peace, to sentence someone to punishment, diagnose a condition, analyze a problem, deliberate, debate or negotiate a deal.

Under Armour

Sunday, August 26th, 2018

Do you know why we do this? We do this because we are baptized ambassadors of God’s kingdom, heralders of that Kingdom here on earth who defiantly and boldly proclaim the gospel of the One who is the Light of the World. We do it for the glory of God that the glory of God alone.

Be Careful How You Live

Sunday, August 19th, 2018 ~ 13th Sunday after Pentecost

The days may be evil, but our lives are not evil, and the One who gives life is not evil but good. The attitude of thanksgiving and a discipline of giving thanks in worship orient our lives toward God. It is only by living all of life to the glory of God that we live into eternity.

Kindness, Tenderheartedness, Forgiveness: Be Imitators Of God

Sunday, August 12th, 2018 ~ 12th Sunday after Pentecost

The trouble is, as Christians, we aren’t supposed to imitate the world. We are, as verse one (Ephesians 5:1)  says, “to be imitators of God” but we live in a broken world. We are a broken people. Our hearts are much more inclined to sin then they are to God. Despite our brokenness, God loves us, has forgiven us, and sealed us with the Holy Spirit.
