  • Dodging Decisions Series

    Contributed by Ed Vasicek on Jun 21, 2021

    What is often passed off as indecisiveness or propriety or procrastination is a dishonest attempt to keep from honoring what is right and fair. We can see Felix’s motives as an example. We can also see how God can use such red tape.

  • The Long Road Rome Series

    Contributed by Ed Vasicek on Jun 7, 2021

  • A Tectonic Collision: Truth Confronts Hatred Series

    Contributed by Ed Vasicek on Jun 1, 2021

    Sometimes lost people reject the Gospel because they do not understand, sometimes because they do. We must be faithful and recognize the results are in God’s hands, not ours.

  • A Good Plan That Went Awry – Or Did It? Series

    Contributed by Ed Vasicek on May 24, 2021

    A unanimous apostolic plan that went awry, Jewish rumors, gentile riots, and an apostle getting a ride on Roman soldiers. The purpose of the Christian life is not to avoid problems; indeed, God can sometimes use our problems to further His plans.

    A Good Plan That Went Awry – Or Did It? (Acts 21:17-40) 1. The invention of Post-it notes is interesting. What seemed like a failure was turned to a great success: In 1968, scientist Spencer Silver at the 3M company created a very weak adhesive that would peel off when removed from any surface. more

  • A Self-Centered Hothead Meets God’s Providence Series

    Contributed by Ed Vasicek on May 17, 2021

    Today’s sermon is about a childless couple unexpectedly blessed with a grape-less son who ends up being a womanizing hothead hippie, marries the enemy, has a hobby of setting fox’ tails on fire, gets put in prison just because he gets a haircut, and dies of fallen arches. This is how it happened.

    A Self-centered Hothead Meets God’s Providence (Judges 13-16) Some people think that God using someone means God endorsing someone. God uses two types of people: 1. Those He uses because of their close walk with Him. 2 Timothy 2:21, “Therefore, if anyone cleanses himself from what is more

  • The Social Outcast Who Saved Society Series

    Contributed by Ed Vasicek on May 3, 2021

    Today’s sermon is about snobby brothers, a son rejected by his family and community but ironically asked to lead those who rejected him, a nation on the brink of war, fake news, and a foolish father who messes up his daughter’s life. Here is how it happened.

    The Social Outcast Who Saved Society (Judges 10¬:6-11:40) 1. One definition of the word irony is, “a state of affairs or an event that seems deliberately contrary to what one expects and is often amusing as a result.” • It is ironic, for example, that the most shop-lifted book is the more

  • Gideon: The Thresher Gone Thrasher Series

    Contributed by Ed Vasicek on Apr 26, 2021

    Today’s sermon is about a cowardly hero forced into hiding by organized crime, an angel that is more than an angel, strange fleece ware, a bad dream, being outnumbered 450 to one, and smashed pottery. This is how it happened.

    Gideon: The Thresher Gone Thrasher (Judges 6:1-7:25) 1. My sister didn’t do as well on her driver’s-ed test as she’d hoped. It might have had something to do with how she completed this sentence: “When the ______ is dead, the car won’t start.” She wrote: “Driver.” Nathan Hellman, Brooklyn, more

  • A Splitting Headache Series

    Contributed by Ed Vasicek on Apr 19, 2021

  • Astounded By Who God Is Series

    Contributed by Ed Vasicek on Apr 12, 2021

    Right Theology – if embraced and allowed to permeate our minds and hearts – produces right worship and a right attitude toward God. The Spirit can then use this right theology and attitude to coax us along to surrender ourselves to Him.

  • Palm Sunday And Two Kings: Jesus And Solomon Series

    Contributed by Ed Vasicek on Mar 29, 2021

    Contributed by Ed Vasicek on Mar 22, 2021

  • The Betrayers: Ahithophel And Judas Series

    Contributed by Ed Vasicek on Mar 15, 2021
