  • What God Thinks About Money Series

    Contributed by Scott Maze on Jun 12, 2021

    If you go to God and say, “I deserve acceptance,” you will be rejected, because that shows you do not know what’s in your own heart. But if you go to God and say, “I deserve rejection; please forgive me,” you will get acceptance. That’s the gospel.

    Just in time for Thanksgiving meal, Jesus tells us who to invite. Today, we encounter a dramatic story where Jesus has been invited into the home of a very prominent man.

  • Paul's Sermon At Athens: Culture And Common Ground

    Contributed by Donald Whitchard on Jun 8, 2021

    Paul's sermon before the men of Athens began with a topic familiar to all of them and that was the common bond of religious belief and practice in their respective cultures. Jesus demonstrated it throughout the Gospels and is a biblical pattern for effective evangelism.

    This month (June) will have marked forty years (1981) since I traveled to India on vacation, away from the business of the McDermott Fabrication Yard in Dubai where I worked as an oil rig sandblaster and painter.

  • The Great Supper Series

    Contributed by Glenn Pease on Mar 26, 2021

  • Why Should Christians Share Jesus

    Contributed by Jesse Crooks on Mar 13, 2021

    Why is it so important that the Church share Jesus? Why is it so important that we keep reaching out inviting others to Jesus?

    Why Should Christians Share Jesus Luke 14:15-24 Introduction Why is it so important that the Church share Jesus? Why is it so important that we keep reaching out inviting others to Jesus? Many years ago, one of our supporters sent me an outline of this text that explains why we are to keep more

  • Jesus And Giving Series

    Contributed by K. Edward Skidmore on Nov 11, 2020

    Today we will turn to examine what Jesus had to say about giving. And we will ask what giving looked like to Jesus. The passage in Luke 14:15-33 is considered one of the "Hard Sayings of Jesus". And indeed, it takes a bit of explanation to make sense of it.

    Jesus and Giving Text: Luke 14:15-33 Luke 14:25-33 (NIV) 25 Large crowds were traveling with Jesus, and turning to them he said: 26 "If anyone comes to me and does not hate his father and mother, his wife and children, his brothers and sisters--yes, even his own life--he cannot be my more

    "The Spirit speaks - especially through Scripture, but ALSO THROUGH HISTORY and the heart" - a sermon for All Saints Day

    Past, Present and Future. Sometimes Christianity can have a reputation for being “stuck in the past” - “out of touch with today’s world” - which at first sounds a bit weird because people get very excited by the past. At the high brow end of the market we have “Wolf Hall” and “Bringing up the more

  • How Long Will You Stay Outside

    Contributed by Rick Gillespie- Mobley on Sep 20, 2020

    This sermon looks at Jonah. The longer we stay outside the will of God of our lives, the more people we endanger.

    Stay Outside Jonah 2:1-8 John 12:1-8 9/20/2020 One of the treasured memories I have as a kid was walking home with my cousins or friends, and then getting caught in the rain. We would take off running as fast as we could heading to the house. When we reached the porch, we would be more

  • ¿cuánto Tiempo Te Quedarás Afuera?

    Contributed by Rick Gillespie- Mobley on Sep 20, 2020

    Este sermón analiza la vida de Jonás. Cuanto más tiempo permanecemos fuera de la voluntad de Dios, más sufrimos nosotros y los demás.

    Permanecer fuera Jonás 2: 1-8 Juan 12:/9/2020 Uno de los recuerdos más preciados que tengo cuando era niño fue caminar a casa con mis primos o amigos y luego quedar atrapado en la lluvia. Saldríamos corriendo lo más rápido que pudiéramos more

  • Our Mission To The "nones" Series

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Nov 2, 2019

    Today we are all called to reach out to what sociology calls the “nones,” people who profess no faith at all. It is critical.

    Tuesday of the 31st Week in Course 2019 St. Guido Maria Conforti One of the recurring errors embraced by lazy Christians is that all one has to do is accept Jesus Christ as your personal savior and you are saved. That statement leads to all kinds of presumptuous behavior. Neither Jesus nor St. more
