Many things come and go in life, but we have one constant – God’s promises stand forever. We change but “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever” (Hebrews 13:8). The following verse in Hebrews is also instructional, “Do not be led away by diverse and strange teachings, for it is good for the heart to be strengthened by grace…”

Throughout his book, Isaiah keeps pounding away that there is no one like God. We do not need to be afraid! (41:10) God was not defeated, even though Israel was defeated, and its leaders carted into exile by the Babylonians. The Babylonian gods are nothing in comparison with the Almighty God. Isaiah wants people to know that though they have sinned; their sin has not separated them from God forever. God is not defeated by the Babylonian gods nor by the sin of the Israelites.

This sermon series focuses on these two mountains and the valley experience between them. I repeat I am not trashing success. As the old quote goes, “I’ve been rich, and I’ve been poor and rich is better.” However, there is more to life than winning and the accumulation of stuff.

The five messages of this new sermon series, “Follow the Leader, Seek the Lord, Be Strong in the Lord, Bless the Lord and Dedicate to the Lord,” follow the biblical text of the Israelites building the Temple. King David wanted to hand off a great legacy to his son, Solomon. The intent was to bring glory to God. This series will illustrate what others have done when faced with opportunities and challenges. We will save a seat for you!

Applied to our faith, “Why” should we be Helping Others Follow Jesus? My answer is, I believe Jesus Christ is the most magnificent human being who has ever or will ever live. Furthermore, Jesus is not JUST a human being – He is God in the flesh. He has the power to forgive our sin, to give us meaning and purpose in life, and to bring us into His community of the Holy Spirit and the church. When this life is over, Jesus ushers us into an entirely new home in heaven. This is why I follow Jesus and why I want others to follow Him, too.

This is a relational series that will teach us to love like Jesus. The Gospels show the characteristics and nature of Jesus in His relationships to people in His ministry. He is portrayed as being: mindful, approachable, grace-full, bold and self-giving. With all things in life, Jesus is our model.
March 7 – April 21, 2019
Signs and wonders are not ends in themselves but always point in the same direction—who Jesus is and why people should follow Him. The bottom line is found in verse 11: “This, the first of his signs, Jesus did at Cana in Galilee, and manifested his glory. And his disciples believed in him.” This sets up our series on “Signs and Wonders.”
January 28 – March 6, 2019
We begin our new sermon series, GOD IS GOOD, this week. We’re looking at Joseph (Genesis 37 – 50) and the suffering he endured. We will seek to understand how God is good, even in the dysfunctions we experience in our families.
December 31, 2018 – January 27, 2019
We start a new, 4-week sermon series called "One Thing." There are many good things in this life. It is truly a wonderful time to be alive. But good things can sometimes distract us from greater and deeply life-changing things. The journal states, “In the U.S., where a majority claim to believe in God, only about half of those attend worship and their average attendance is less than twice per month.
Jesus asked, "When the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on earth?" (Luke 18:8) How is your adoration of God and your commitment to worship Him? 2019 can be a new beginning.
November 26 – December 30, 2018
Christmas is not about the accumulation or swapping of stuff and it is not about SELF. It is about God’s incredible gift to us -- Jesus Christ.
How should we thank our Lord for such a wonderful gift? Through Worship. “O Come Let Us Adore Him” with favor, wonder, awe, and devotion. This will be a powerful sermon series so please be sure to invite family and friends.
