    based on 8 ratings
     | 4,373 views

    This sermon deals with the effect that Jesus’ cross had on three men: Simon the Cyrene, John the Apostle and Nicodemus, the quiet follower.

    CROSS-Culture Palm Sunday 2009 – Communion Sunday I grew up in a fairly sheltered environment. Other than books at school I remember little, if any, interaction with anyone of another culture. My first encounter with a different culture was a kid I met at school. I don’t remember his ...read more

    based on 3 ratings
     | 1,169 views

    We seem to make the whole "knowing God" thing much harder than God ever did? Life is hard, knowing God is what makes sense out of life.

    Spirituality For the Rest of Us 2 Peter 3:18, “But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.” Intro: Why should following Jesus Christ be so “hard”? If I had a dollar for every time I’ve heard someone tell me: “Oh, Pastor Paul, it’s so haaarrrrdddd…” “Pastor, ...read more

  • Adore-Ation Series

     | 1,393 views

    In part three of Discover the REAL Christmas we discover ADORE-ation. Christmas is about our worship and adoration of Jesus Christ. It took on different forms for each of the characters of Christmas.

    Song: We wish you a Merry Christmas... This week I started the third of four Christmas books that I will be reading this year. None of them are of any consequence, just fun little books to fill in the gaps between the study books I’m reading and other stuff that I’m doing. My favorite so far is ...read more

  • Evalueation Series

    Contributed by Paul Newell on Dec 14, 2006

     | 1,126 views

    In this second sermon in the series Discover the REAL Christmas we discover what is really valuable at Christmas. For Mary and Joseph, God’s grace, blessing and favor were worth more than anything!

    My family had received a mailbox full of “valuable offers” every day this month. I can’t imagine the number of trees that sacrificed their lives so that I could be enticed with such valuable things as $200 belts, Christmas stockings for my kittens; toilet seat warmers...what a waste! Can you ...read more

  • Realationship Series

    Contributed by Paul Newell on Dec 4, 2006
    based on 1 rating
     | 1,078 views

    Discovering the REAL Christmas begins with REALationship. Though Simon Peter does not meet the Christ Child until thirty years after his birth, Peter is still a powerful illustration of REALationship.

    Pretend Santas, imitation smells, counterfeit presents, simulated smiles, artificial trees, fake snow...how is it that we’ve turned the Christmas season into everything but something real? It appears to me that most of what is foisted upon us during the holiday’s is anything but real. As we ...read more

    An introduction and first sermon in a three part Advent Series developed loosly from The Chronicles of Narnia. Additional Sermons: Turkish Delight, Trickes of the Evil One and Miracle at the Stone Table.

    Narnia: Introduction & Explanation It may seem a little strange that we are building our Advent series around a “fairy tale” as C.S. Lewis called his novel, The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe. Let me set your mind at ease, we’re going to do what Lewis himself hinted at concerning all of the ...read more

     | 3,614 views

    Pre-Thanksgiving Sermon. Each year since the founding of FamilyFellowship we have added "leaves" to a tree. We give each person a paper leaf and ask then to write their greatest "thanks" for the year. Then we take time to add the leaves to a tree.

    The Thanksgiving Tree - Thanksgiving 2005 The Story of Thanksgiving… Most of us already know the “official story” of Thanksgiving. Over 350 years ago a group of early settlers called “Pilgrims” landed at Plymouth Rock in Rhode Island. They had a very rough winter, but with the help of several ...read more

    based on 103 ratings
     | 10,394 views

    Sometimes we need a sign. I don’t mean a miracle, I mean a sign. Throughout this "road trip" we call life God has given us a practical life map - His Word. But we also need to pay attention to the "signs along the way", road signs to help us make sure we

    Terrie, the girls and I just returned from a brief road trip. It was a fast drive up Central California to visit Benji on his 19th birthday. (Benji is working at a Christian Camp for the summer.) I had driven to Hume Lake one other time when I dropped Benj off in June, but honestly, I’m not sure ...read more

    A short devotional talk on Jeremiah chapter one. God is always watching and He’s always watching over us.

    Almonds Anyone? Jeremiah Chapter One When I was a kid we had an almond tree in our back yard. I didn’t much care for almonds, they were much too hard to deal with. The walnut and pecan trees on the other hand were great. We could eat the pecans as soon as they fell and the black walnuts made ...read more
