    Contributed by Gordon Mcculloch on Nov 25, 2016
    based on 1 rating

    Good things happens to bad people, and the Gospel tells us that, but it is not fair, but what we don’t see, is God changing us for the better, refining us to do his will. It is all there in the bible.

  • Not Another Dead God Easter Series

    Contributed by Michael Mccartney on Apr 21, 2017

    Jesus was unlike any other so-called god or person in history because He did not stay dead – Jesus God in flesh died! – But death did not consume Him or contain Him. He rose up from it in power – WHY? - So we could also be set free from death!

    The message shares how faith can move us, open us, deepen us, better us, and challenges us.

  • Divine Mercy

    Contributed by Paul Andrew on Apr 10, 2017

    Divine Mercy Sunday I saw a picture of a lady with a post-it note on her forehead that said, "Be merciful to yourself." God's mercy comes first to us personally, and from there, we can show mercy to others. In fact, being merciful to ourselves may be crucial to our ability to be merciful to more

    based on 3 ratings

    Sin embargo, usted mira esta historia, el énfasis siempre aparece a Thomas o nosotros dudando, sugiriendo que nos falta fe. No todo tiene que ver con nosotros; Dios tiene un papel en nuestra fe y debemos dejarlo trabajar a través de nosotros. Simplemente

  • "Return From The Dead" Series

    Contributed by Ed Vasicek on Mar 30, 2016

    Whether we are or are not convinced that Christ rose from the dead does not affect the reality of the Resurrection. But if we accept its reality by faith and live consistently in light of it, it changes our lives like nothing else can.

    "Return from the Dead" (John 20:19-29) [note: this is a revised sermon from my 2003 sermon, "Back from the Dead."] 1. For a lot of kids, Easter is about eater eggs and candy. Boy 1: "How did you get that bruise on your arm?"

  • Got Peace? Series

    Contributed by Clair Sauer on Apr 14, 2016

    After his resurrection, Christ repeatedly offers peace to his disciples. Christ understands our need for true peace.

    So I want to start by taking a quick poll. We spent the six weeks of Lent searching for peace in an anxious world. And now I’m just curious…anybody feel like you’ve now achieved the greatest possible peace in your life? What about the disciples? Our Scripture reading from John more

  • Two Post Resurrection Appearances Of Jesus In Jn 20

    Contributed by Revd. Martin Dale on Apr 2, 2016

    God treats us an individuals and knows our specific needs just as he did with MAry, Peter and Thomas and the unnamed disciples of Jn 20

    Story: There were once two identical twins. They were alike in every way but one. One was a hope-filled optimist, Peter who only ever saw the bright side of life. The other, Thomas was a dark pessimist, who only ever saw the down side in every situation. The parents were so worried more

  • Seeing And Believing

    Contributed by Craig Condon on Oct 2, 2015

    Some people refuse to believe that Jesus rose from the dead because they have not seen him with their own eyes. They want concrete proof. On the other hand, all of us know that Jesus rose from the dead because we believe it in faith.

    Good morning boys and girls! Has anyone told you something that was so amazing that you could not believe it? Sometimes people like to tell us things that we can’t believe. For example, some people might have told you that there is no such thing as the Easter Bunny of Santa Claus. more
