  • Finding Who You Are In Who God Is

    Contributed by Kerry Haynes on Jun 1, 2020
    based on 1 rating

    God is the source of true and healthy self-esteem. Psalm 8 leads us through four seemingly contradictory statements: 1. God is GREAT! 2. We are not. 3. God says we have great value. And 4. Through our weakness, God is glorified.

    Finding Who You Are in Who God Is (Psalm 8) Do you ever think that maybe Galileo and Copernicus got it wrong, that our solar system doesn’t really revolve around the sun? Because on some days it seems like the universe just revolves around ... you? Now let’s be honest. We all have our moments of more

  • When God Moves Through Us

    Contributed by Kerry Haynes on May 25, 2020
    based on 4 ratings

    Pentecost showed a God whose power comes upon us, whose presence rests gently upon us, and whose power manifests through us, to help a world in much need of a loving and forgiving Christ.

    Acts 2:1-21 When God Moves Through Us A few days after Thanksgiving of 2016, Eric Heffelmire was working on his GMC truck at his family home in Vienna, Virginia. As he recalls, “I was on my back, face up, and I was trying to get some corroded brake lines when apparently the jack slipped and fell more

  • Who You Are In God’s Eyes

    Contributed by Kerry Haynes on May 7, 2020
    based on 1 rating

    God, through the Apostle Peter, gives us several images of what it means to be a Christian rightly connected to Christ and to each other. Holding onto these images can help us weather the storms of life.

    1 Peter 2:2-10 Who You Are in God’s Eyes Happy Mother’s Day, church! If you are able to join us for our 11:00 Zoom call today (that is, Sunday), mothers, we’d like you to show us a picture of you and your kids, maybe when they were young, if you have one handy. Mothers often are the glue that more

  • Running Into Jesus

    Contributed by Kerry Haynes on Apr 20, 2020
    based on 5 ratings

    The two folks on the Emmaus Walk point to our own relationship with God: sometimes we grow disappointed with him. Then we need to re-orient our life on his word, and discover a whole new joy as we walk again in concert with him and his plans.

    Luke 24:13-35 Running into Jesus The Bible records ten different resurrection appearances of Jesus. Today we look at one of the most captivating, a story only found in the gospel of Luke. The setting is a round trip hike between Jerusalem and Emmaus. A couple of Jewish believers are heading home more

  • Defeating Doubt

    Contributed by Kerry Haynes on Apr 15, 2020
    based on 4 ratings

    Everyone has doubts, especially in trying times like these. Thomas shows us to guard in your low times, draw strength from others, and meet the risen Lord.

    John 20:19-20, 24-29 Defeating Doubt In this terrible time of pandemic, you might be tempted to think, “Where are you, God? Why don’t you stop this? Are you really there?” Everyone goes through doubts in their faith, even Mother Teresa. She once wrote her spiritual director, “Where I try to raise more

  • A Fresh Start

    Contributed by Kerry Haynes on Apr 6, 2020
    based on 4 ratings

    The Easter story shows that God keeps his promises, that God offers a fresh start, and that God speaks to those who listen.

    Matthew 28:1-10 A Fresh Start Today over a billion people will celebrate Easter, even in the midst of a worldwide pandemic! People all over the globe will remember with excitement the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Why all the attention for an event that happened some 2,000 years ago? Why is Easter more

  • Change Your Mind!

    Contributed by Kerry Haynes on Apr 4, 2020
    based on 4 ratings

    God through the Apostle Paul tells us to be more like-minded, humble minded, and Christ-minded. We are the body of Christ, even when separated physically through COVID-19.

    (Sermon on video at: Philippians 2:1-11 Change your Mind! Good morning church! At the end of today’s message, I’ll take Communion, as we would if we were gathered physically together on more

  • Dead Man Walking

    Contributed by Kerry Haynes on Mar 21, 2020
    based on 4 ratings

    When have you faced an obstacle that seemed impossible? Jesus raising Lazarus back to life teaches us to 1) Trust God's timing, 2) Trust God's heart, and 3) Trust God's might.

    Dead Man Walking John 11:1-45 March 29, 2020 I got my sermon title from that phrase used to describe someone from Death Row heading to their execution. They are called “Dead Man Walking.” It’s an eerie title for someone who is moving invariably toward their death. However, in today’s more

  • Found Out And Fulfilled

    Contributed by Kerry Haynes on Mar 11, 2020
    based on 3 ratings

    In his encounter with the woman at the well, Jesus calls us to confess our guilt and shame, to receive eternal, abundant life, and to share that life with others, inviting them, too, to know the Savior.

    John 4:5-42 Found Out and Fulfilled What if God set up a video projector right here in the foyer and began to show all of your greatest sins on the screen, for everyone to see? Would you be embarrassed? Full of guilt and shame? Or what if God set up the projector and started the reel, and all that more

  • Help Is On The Way!

    Contributed by Kerry Haynes on Mar 5, 2020
    based on 4 ratings

    Like the early Israelites, we can sing with confidence, because God watches over us, God protects us, and God is with us. We have nothing to fear.

    Psalm 121 Help is on the Way! We live in a time of great uncertainty, of fear of what the future may hold. If you asked me a couple of months ago, I never would have predicted that the world would be caught up in a deadly new strand of coronavirus. We have had great scares before: the Spanish flu, more

  • Why You Can Trust Scripture

    Contributed by Kerry Haynes on Feb 20, 2020
    based on 4 ratings

    Peter reminds us that we can trust scripture because: 1) It was written by eyewitnesses in risk of their lives. 2) It reflects God’s single message through a variety of human writers. And 3) It will change your life as you read it.

    2 Peter 1:16-21 Why You Can Trust Scripture Our church gave some money the last couple of years for our VA’s Reboot Combat Recovery groups. Reboot is a Christian-based approach to healing from the spiritual wounding of war. Groups are held in the evening, and Veterans may bring a spouse or other more

  • Hate Crimes

    Contributed by Kerry Haynes on Feb 9, 2020
    based on 1 rating

    Jesus believed in hate crimes, because God knows the heart. Jesus urges us to resolve our murderous thoughts, make it right when we can, and settle out of court, all so that a watching world will take note of how Christian brothers and sisters get along.

    Matthew 5:21-26 Hate Crimes The FBI defines a hate crime as a “criminal offense against a person or property, motivated in whole or in part by an offender’s bias against a race, religion, disability, sexual orientation, ethnicity, gender, or gender identity.” A hate crime is not the same as hate more

  • Bless You!

    Contributed by Kerry Haynes on Jan 27, 2020
    based on 5 ratings

    In the Beatitudes, Jesus shows the way of the believer. As we follow Christ daily, we will be blest. Our focus should be on the blessing, not the circumstance, and we should share the blessing with others.

    Matthew 5:1-12 Bless You! Today is a sermon on a sermon, perhaps the most famous sermon of all: the Beatitudes, part of Jesus’ longer Sermon on the Mount. The word “beatitude” means “blessed” in Latin. The Beatitudes are all about finding blessings in unexpected places. Who would expect to be more

  • Preserving The Union

    Contributed by Kerry Haynes on Jan 22, 2020
    based on 4 ratings

    Paul urged the Corinthian church to preserve their unity in Christ at all costs. We learn from him to work quickly through conflict, appreciate our differences, and know what unites us.

    1 Corinthians 1:10-18 Preserving the Union If you ever find a perfect church, join it, and it will no longer be perfect! And if you ever feel bad about the state of your church or the state of the church in America today, just read the Bible book of 1 Corinthians! These folks had lots of problems, more

  • Help, God!

    Contributed by Kerry Haynes on Jan 15, 2020
    based on 2 ratings

    Sometimes we find ourselves in the miry pit, either through our own sin, the sin of others, or just bad stuff happening. That is the time to learn to wait on God, trust his word, obey his prompting, and glorify his name.

    Help, God! Psalm 40:1-11 January 19, 2020 We’ve all been there. Sometimes life is good, and sometimes life is not so good. Sometimes you are the bird sailing high up in the air, and are the statue. Sometimes we’re on a mountain high, and other times we may be in the more
