  • Gifts In A Manger

    Contributed by Larry Turner on Dec 19, 2014

    In the manger with Jesus we can discover 6 gifts just waiting to be opened.

    I hold in my hand today a very old book. I know it doesn’t look old. In fact, according to the front page, it was first published in 1988 based on a copy write from 1976.

    Have you ever been in a situation where a comment you have made was misinterpreted and caused problems that you never intended? I really don’t care for texting for that reason. People cannot hear the tone in your voice so a soft “No” maybe interpreted as a harsh “No” more

    Contributed by Larry Turner on Nov 19, 2014

    An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth seemed rather fair but Jesus had a better, more difficult way to settle things.

    As some of you remembered back in May, four weeks before my very first cruise, I fell at the local Y injuring my shoulder. What followed was accident reports being filed, doctor visits, ex-rays, MRIs, and the diagnosis of shoulder surgery. Looking on the internet I was discovering the cost was to more

  • A Confessing Adulterer Series

    Contributed by Larry Turner on Nov 7, 2014

    Jesus appears to stongly condemn remarriage after a divorce. This tends to create a bleak future for a lot of folks. But was this his intent? This sermon covers the message that Jesus was delivering concerning divorce and remarriage.

    We are in the midst of a series entitled “Upsetting the Apple Cart.” We have already discovered that murder is wrong but Jesus equated being angry with someone to murder. We have already discovered that adultery is wrong but Jesus equated looking with lust to adultery. Today He really more

  • Adultery In The Heart Series

    The identity of the Holy Spirit can be misunderstood at times. This sermon deals with the Holy Spirit identifying himself.

    There seems to be a lot of misunderstanding about the Holy Spirit, who He is, and what his role is. We have a rather clear understanding of God, the Heavenly Father and Jesus, our Savoir.
