  • Getting Off Dead Center Series

    Contributed by Sherm Nichols on Mar 28, 2016

    A reminder that anyone can successfully share some element of the good news with someone who needs to hear it.

    Thanks to everyone who took the time to answer my simple survey over the past 3 weeks! I was thinking I might end up with some really creative tools and ideas for all of us when it comes to sharing our faith. I expected that, at the end of this series on getting evangelism in hand, I might more

  • Why Do You Seek The Living Among The Dead?

    Contributed by Sherm Nichols on Mar 28, 2016

    Easter sermon. The great news that Jesus rose from the dead has the potential to change our plans, our outlook on life, and our hope for the future.

    They’re looking for “life” on Mars. Why? I guess it would be interesting just to find out if it’s there or not. The Brits launched Beagle 2 a few years back. They’re not sure what happened with it. That would have been a sure bet. I figure, about 2 days after more

  • Welcome To The Priesthood

    Contributed by Sherm Nichols on Mar 26, 2016

    A sermon about the priesthood of all believers in Christ.

    It doesn’t take long to figure out that having a title isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. It’s lonely at the top, even though you may have a name plaque that says something before or after your name. Really, it would be easier not to wear a title sometimes: Stinky diapers more

  • The Sermon On The Amount

    Contributed by Sherm Nichols on Mar 26, 2016

    An appeal for tithing as a legitimate starting point for financial giving.

    After we finish this series we’re going to have a series about what coffee should be served in a church building, the direction your feet should be pointing when you’re buried, and whether or not you should drive an SUV on Sunday. Just kidding! Those are things that really just have more

  • If You’ve Been Forgiven

    Contributed by Sherm Nichols on Mar 26, 2016
    based on 1 rating

    Study on the parable of the unforgiving servant - the necessity of forgiving one another.

    He done you wrong. He did. I don’t know who “he” is. I don’t know what “he done.” I just know that, whoever he or she is, and whatever he or she did, I’m right, aren’t I? He done you wrong. She done you wrong. Do you have that person in mind? more

  • Our Best Foot Forward, Every Time

    Contributed by Sherm Nichols on Mar 26, 2016

    Sermon encouraging this church family to give careful attention to the heart we project to non-believers

    Showed video here - man on the street interviews about the world's impressions of Christians We’ll talk about that video in a little bit. For a few weeks now we’ve been talking about our vision as a church... Today, I get to wrap this up by talking about making CCC a place more

  • Shock And Awe Series

    Contributed by Sherm Nichols on Mar 26, 2016

    Considering the wonders of God, and the resulting sense of awe, is the foundation for our response of worship to Him

    Football season! Cold nights. Hot chocolates in the stands. Cider donuts from Edward’s Orchard. Sunday afternoon armchair quarterbacking. Some people get pretty caught up in all of it. Have you ever noticed the way that every stadium is put together, no matter what the sport, the more

  • Cheerleaders, Nachos, And Jerseys Series

    Contributed by Sherm Nichols on Mar 26, 2016

    Worship of God consists of a few essential elements. This message will attempt to identify those essentials and help us latch onto them.

    Sermon Lanier Christian Church November 11, 2012 David Simpson Soldiers of the Cross 2 Timothy 2:1-4 You then, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. 2 And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable men who will also be more

  • Playing For The Right Team Series

    Contributed by Sherm Nichols on Mar 26, 2016

    Worship in spirit and in truth is always directed to God above everything else. I want for my audience to understand how worship tends to get misdirected, and why that is such a grievous error; to know what worship directed toward God truly is

    Welcome to the stadium! This is now the 3rd week we’re taking a closer look at worship, and we’re doing that in the context of something that most all of us already think about – a stadium – how, just like a big football game, there are a lot of parallels between what you more

  • Leave It All On The Field Series

    Contributed by Sherm Nichols on Mar 26, 2016

    The focus of worship is God and what He wants. This sermon drives that point home to end this series.

    I hope this series on worship has been helpful over the past month. At least it may have helped put you in the mood for football season! I’ve been pretty upfront about the goal here – to get us out of the armchair, and onto the field – not on Thanksgiving afternoon, necessarily, more

  • Getting The Father’s Heart Series

    Contributed by Sherm Nichols on Mar 26, 2016

    The first necessity of getting evangelism in-hand is that we learn to have a heart for the lost - a heart like the Father's

  • Getting The Facts Straight Series

    Contributed by Sherm Nichols on Mar 26, 2016

    download-for the people to understand all they need to know in order to help lead someone to Jesus for the people to feel confident that they can know all they need to know in order to share their faith; feel excited about sharing their faith;...

    pass out handouts: This helped lead me to Jesus… or I helped lead someone to Jesus this way… Countdowns. We know what they are. It means there’s so much time between some future event and the present. There are 62 days until we take up the special offering for Rancho San more

  • Getting The Workers Together Series

    Contributed by Sherm Nichols on Mar 26, 2016

    When I finish my sermon I want my audience to have a positive change of heart and thinking when it comes to why we are here and what we hope to accomplish as a church family

    This background here, and the NEXT, is going to serve to remind us of what’s next at CCC. Don’t forget those NEXT things! Remember? We’re going to give careful attention to... • The next generation of believers • The next generation of leaders in the church more

  • Fitting It In

    Contributed by Sherm Nichols on Mar 25, 2016

    A sermon urging a greater commitment to prayer, and ways that can be accomplished.

    I want to fit it in. I want to make sure that prayer is vital in my life. But when? What about all those times I had good intentions and dropped the ball? What about those days where I was well into the day before I remembered that there were people I needed to pray for, items I needed to take more

  • Your Servant Is Listening

    Contributed by Sherm Nichols on Mar 25, 2016
    based on 1 rating

    A sermon that considers the 2-way nature of prayer, rather than just approaching it as a time for God to listen to us.

    On January 4, 1987, Oral Roberts launched his most notable campaign to date. He told his followers that if he didn’t raise a total of 8 million dollars by March, God was going to take his life. Comparing himself to the apostle Paul, Roberts begged not to let Satan defeat him. "God" he said, more
