     | 3,305 views

    Even for Mary, Joseph and Jesus there were some messy family days. But that may be a necessary, healthy part of letting our teens grow up.

    Have you ever found yourself in the situation where someone really impresses you, and you ask yourself, “I wonder what that person was like as a child?” You might be impressed with them for good things, or bad things. But you wonder about their childhood. For centuries Jesus has impressed ...read more

  • The God Of Hagar And Ishmael

    Contributed by Arlyn Sunshine Drew on Feb 24, 2022
     | 1,291 views

    The banishment of Ishmael is extremely troubling: it carries the sting of racism, bullying, and some might even say- a hate crime, life-threatening expulsion of a minor based on prejudice. But God turned this tragedy into a victorious coming-of-age drama.

    Let's read it together, Genesis 21:8-21 (ASV) "8 And the child grew and was weaned: and Abraham made a great feast the same day that Isaac was weaned. 9 And Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, which she had born unto Abraham, mocking.10 Wherefore she said unto Abraham, Drive out ...read more

    Coming of age brings respobsibility as well as joy!

    Only in America can a pastor with a German name do a Hispanic "bat mitzvah." I even welcomed folks in Spanish. Only one sentence but they seemed impressed. This was "milder" version of the tradition but I think it would be good if the Anglos developed a ceremony for boys and girls coming of ...read more

    This is a sample ceremony for a Christian younglady’s "coming of age" celebration which most hispanic cultures celebrate.

    Consecration of a Quinceañera If you cannot find 14 fourteen girls or if you don’t want to have a "court of attendants", it is appropriate to have the quinceañera stand alone with her parents. It is suggested that the following objects be used in the ceremony. 1. A Bible (preferably with a ...read more

  • The Church Of The Adopted Series

    Contributed by Guy Mcgraw on Dec 12, 2011
     | 3,679 views

    Paul writes to the churches in Galatia about how being under the Law is like being a child but when we are set free in Christ we finally come of age as God’s people.

    The Church of the Adopted Galatians 4:1-7 I sat in a restaurant this week at a table next to two guys who when their food arrived they decided which one would pray by saying, ‘Age before beauty’. I thought they both fell into the same category and unless they were waiting for ...read more

    In the book of Jonah we come to an age old crisis as we walk with Jonah and deal with the same question he dealt with. Will I put my trust in God? How will my life testify to my trust?

    A TESTAMENT OF TRUST JONAH 1:1 - JONAH 4:11 Introduction: The foundation that we would like the world to be built on is trust. It is the thing that we are asked to do, probably more than anything else. It is also the thing that is abused more than anything else in the world. How many ...read more

  • Adopted Sons Of God

    Contributed by Boomer Phillips on Mar 9, 2022
    based on 1 rating
     | 1,038 views

    This message looks at the concept of adoption. If we confess Jesus as Savior and Lord, we receive a new father, which is God the Father, and we become heirs of the kingdom. We are then able to call upon God as our Abba or Daddy.

    Some of the most well-known words to the believer are the first six words of the Lord’s Prayer: “Our Father, who art in heaven.” Our Father - God is known as our heavenly Father. We pray to God as our Father, speak of Him as our Father, and even sing to Him as our Father. For example, one ...read more

  • A Deacon Ordination

    Contributed by Steve Taylor on Jul 19, 2006
    based on 21 ratings
     | 20,363 views

    Used at the ordination of Warren Kellum as deacon of our church.

    The word “deacon” means servant. Nothing fancy. Nothing extra-ordinary. A deacon is a servant. Now believe it or not, that can lead to some confusion. Because when a group of people calls someone to be their servant, they begin to take the attitude that while the servant serves, they are to sit and ...read more
