    Contributed by David Henderson on Nov 4, 2020

    Now there is a big connection I want you to understand today…and that is the connection between GIVING Jesus also made a connection between GIVING and FORGIVING in John 3:16. Throughout the remainder of this message this is the question I want to ask you to think about…

    HEARTBEATS “The Widow’s Might” Mark 12: 41-44 Burt Reynolds once starred in a film titled “The End.” In the movie he decides to take his life by swimming as far as he can until he is completely exhausted and then not having the strength to get back he thought he would drown.

  • Core 52 Week 31 - All You Need Is Love Series

    Contributed by Lanny Smith on Aug 4, 2020

    Maybe the Beatles were right. In a world that shifts constantly, what principle do we rely on to guide us? A classic question with a timeless response. Love God and love one another.

    You can hear the sermon on my podcast here: • Our world is full of contradictory direction giving. Particularly now. o Mask, no mask? o Go out in public, stay home? o Kids go to school or not? o The problem with this situation is that deciding which more

    Our text today is in Philippians 2:19-24. But before we go there, I want to process our current situation in America with you. I’ll begin with a couple of hypothetical situations as a backdrop for what I want to share with you. What would you say if I told you that the Federal government has shut more

  • Dare Series

    Contributed by Greg Lindsey on Mar 15, 2020

    So hey there, good to see you and to have you with us.

  • 2 A Cup Of Coffee

    Contributed by Simon Bartlett on Jan 28, 2020

    Jesus sees what we’re doing; he values our service to him, even in things that might seem very small to us; and he will reward our service.

    A cup of coffee *** Background: my second service as minister; the interim minister is leaving. At the start of the service I make a cappuccino coffee and cut a piece of cake. I invite Jo, the church secretary, to come to the front and then serve the coffee and cake, explaining that it is a more

  • The Sermon On The Mount (Part 14) Series

    Contributed by Derrick Tuper on Dec 9, 2019

    Today we start chapter six. Throughout chapter five we saw the phrase, "you have heard it was said". Jesus no longer starts out that way. Jesus isn't challenging contradictory teachings but contradictory practices. Today's lesson is on why we do good deeds.

    THE SERMON ON THE MOUNT (part 14) Matthew 6:1-4 Today we start chapter six. We'll notice that Jesus doesn't introduce his topics as he has up to this point. Throughout chapter five we saw the now familiar phrase, "you have heard it was said". But Jesus doesn't start out that more

    1. Wicked and hypocrite Christian: our good deeds should be motivated by a sincere desire to help others.

  • Don't Be A Show Off

    Contributed by Jeffrey Sims on Dec 14, 2018

    This could be used as a stewardship sermon and hopefully would get people to realize that their is more to being a Christian than just filling a pew. Hopefully this sermon compels people to look beyond the superficial and truly look to their heart.

    (a note about the opening illustration; It is not my own but i don't know where I actually found it originally, it is tucked away with some notes I have.) There was a man who called a church and asked if he could speak to the Head Hog at the trough. The secretary said, "Who?" Then more

  • Check Your Motive

    Contributed by Kerry Haynes on Nov 11, 2018
    based on 3 ratings

    Jesus contrasts the Teachers of the Law with the poor widow. In the former, we see people more interested in themselves than in God; hypocrites, pretending to be something they were not. In the latter, we see a lady who loved God authentically and completely.

    Check Your Motive Mark 12:38-44 In March 2009 Bernie Madoff pled guilty to running the largest Ponzi scheme in history. Bernie’s last name is appropriate, because he literally “made off” with billions of dollars belonging to his investors. A Ponzi scheme is pretty simple in concept: you convince more

    A sermon in the character of an observer who was seeing the events that unfolded in Mark 12:38-44, where he see the difference between the religious rulers and the widow, and we explore not only what this means for us but what this story reveals about God.

    I will never forget that day. I was sitting near the back waiting to worship and out of the corner of my eye I could the one everyone was talking about. This is the one who was challenging some of the religious authorities, not with violence but with love and something called grace. And there more

  • Two Kinds Of Religion

    Contributed by I. G. Spong on Nov 5, 2018

    In the midst of church scandals, can we look beyond human sins and see God at work? We religious leaders are the object of Jesus’ greatest criticisms; will we listen?
