  • Magi's Response To Christ Series

    Contributed by Paul Clemente on Dec 29, 2014

    Follow the example of the Magi after experiencing Christmas.

    Have you heard any predictions yet for the New Year 2015? They are already out there and we will hear many more as this year ends. Did you know that during the Old Testament times, when someone proclaims to be a prophet and their prediction is wrong, they get executed! Daniel during Old more

  • "What If No One Told The Story?"

    Contributed by David Henderson on Dec 29, 2014

    So God entrusted the greatest message ever sent from heaven to a bunch of smelly, uncouth shepherds. It shouldn’t surprise us because from the beginning of time he has come to lift up those who have found themselves at the bottom of the ladder.

    What if no one told the Story? Luke 2:8-20 Surveys are done on just about every subject now. One was taken with church members asking then which character in the Christmas story they most identified with. Mary? Joseph? The shepherds? The wise men? Most people who answered the question more

  • Finding God's Strength

    Contributed by David Henderson on Dec 29, 2014

    Everyone seems to believe that wealth will make them happy. In this passage we read of a man who had it all yet he walked away from God because he had so much.

    Finding God’s Strength Matthew 5:5 and 11:28-30 The setting for the message this morning is found in one of the highlights of the ministry of Jesus. His ministry had its share of highs and lows but this was definitely one of his finer moments. In the background, Jesus had just gone more

  • "Mary's Christmas"

    Contributed by David Henderson on Dec 29, 2014

    When we look back at the life of Mary I see 2 extreme points of view that have surfaced. 1. Many believers have chosen to worship Mary. 2. Others have chosen to completely ignore Mary. The scripture does not support either approach.

    Mary’s Christmas Luke 1:26-38 Most of us recognize that Christmas can actually be one of the most stressful times of the year. For pastors and their families things do not usually slow down—instead things just get busier. For many in the church and community there are those more

  • "Keep The Change" Series

    Contributed by David Henderson on Dec 29, 2014

    The Bible is a book about change. It is a book that tells us how to change so that we can become mature; complete; holy servants of Jesus Christ. Until we are completely free of all; the hurts, habits and hang-ups of this life.

    “Keep the Change” Matthew 5:9 and Romans 12:1-2 I think we call all agree today that the Bible is an amazing book. 66 books, not written by one man, but 39 written over a period of 1500 years. And there is a thread that runs through the scripture from Genesis to Revelation that more

  • Uncomfortable Commitment

    Contributed by David Henderson on Dec 29, 2014

    This is a message for Christmas Eve used to introduce the Lord's supper.

    It is such a meaningful time when we celebrate the Lord’s Supper during the Christmas season. For many this season is often filled with gift buying and family time and usually eating more than we should. All of those things are good, maybe we could eat less but all in all we do these things more

  • "What Do You Do When You Lose The Son Of God?"

    Contributed by David Henderson on Dec 29, 2014

    Our first question is this, what kind of parents are they—they are raising the Son of God and they left to make the journey home and he is nowhere to be found.

    “What do you do when you lose the Son of God?” Luke 2:41-52 Mary and Joseph had a wonderful celebration of their first Christmas. The Bible says that when Mary received the news that she began to ponder the words that Gabriel had spoken to her. Now she has given birth and she and more

  • "Decision Making Made Easy"

    Contributed by David Henderson on Dec 29, 2014

    What should we do when we have to make an important decision? The Bible says, "Seek and you will find, ask and it will be given to you, knock and the door will be opened to you."

    Object: A coin and a fortune cookie. Scripture: Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. Matthew 7: 7 People do different things when they have a difficult decision to make. • Urim and thummim. Like dice. • Draw more

  • God Uses Small Things

    Contributed by David Henderson on Dec 29, 2014

    Have you ever seen a mustard seed? Look. See how tiny these seeds are? These are from the area where Jesus lived. They are the smallest seeds I have ever seen. A mustard seed is so small that if you were holding one in your hand and dropped it on the ground, you might not be able to find it.

    Parable of the Mustard Seed Mark 4:30-32 Living Bible (TLB) 30 Jesus asked, “How can I describe the Kingdom of God? What story shall I use to illustrate it? 31-32. It is like a tiny mustard seed! Though this is one of the smallest of seeds, yet it grows to become one of the largest of more

  • Fishers Of Men

    Contributed by David Henderson on Dec 29, 2014

    Well Jesus knew that many of the people he would have as his early disciples would be fishermen because it is one of the main ways people made money in that part of the world. So he went out to get his disciples and this is what he said, “follow me and I will make you fishers of men.”

    Good morning. I want to start by asking you something. How many of you have ever been fishing before? Well I have. I enjoy getting out in the sun on the lake. It’s nice. But you know what I really enjoy doing when I go fishing? Actually catching fish. Wednesday night we talked more

  • Baptism

    Contributed by David Henderson on Dec 29, 2014

    The is message was used right before a baptism. I allowed the children in our church to stand near the baptistery and observe. I wanted them to get a picture of what baptism means.

    This morning I want to invite all of the children 6th grade and younger to come and stand right up here. Because I want to talk to you today about baptism. Most of you have seen someone get baptized before but you probably haven’t seen it this close up. And I think the best way for me to more

  • In What Sense Is Mary The Mother Of God Series

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Dec 29, 2014

    We will understand better the term Mother of God if we realize that the January 1 feast is really a feast of Our Lord Jesus.

    Solemnity of Mary Mother of God–January 1 (Thirteen Days of Christmas) To begin every New Year, the Church gives us a great gift, the Solemnity of Mary in her title “Mother of God.” But even though the feast has Mary in the title, like every Marian celebration, it is really more

  • R U A Treasure Hunter Series

    Contributed by Tim May on Dec 29, 2014

    Someone else is receiving a blessing if you choose to bury your treasure.

    Do you know where the most expensive piece of real estate on this planet is located? Cemeteries. 6 feet into the ground is buried all kinds of treasure. Dreams that were never pursued, books that were never written, songs that were never sung, inventions that were never pursued, churches that more

  • Jochebed! Who? Trusting God Exodus 2 V1-10

    Contributed by Roger Whipp on Dec 29, 2014

    Jochebed, Moses mother trusted God with the most important thing in her life. Are we prepared to do the same?

    I guess for most Police Officers, the most stressful part of the job is appearing at court. I shall never forget my first Crown Court appearance, and the first time I gave evidence at Court 1 at The Old Baily. Generally it’s not because you have done anything wrong, or as some might more
