  • Protecting The Unity Of The Church

    Contributed by Greg Warren on Jun 16, 2021

    The importance of protecting the unity of the church and practical principles and steps for doing so.

    We'd like to think that the church is immune to conflict and disagreement. After all, we're all Christians here. Right? Well, don't be naive. Hopefully, we're all striving to be like Christ. But we're also humans who sometimes fall short. We say things or react before we more

  • 2x4 In My Eye Series

    “2x4 In My Eye” Luke 6:37-45 A sermon for 6/6/21 Pastor John Bright - Harmony & Swansonville UMC Luke 6 “41 And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not perceive the plank in your own eye? 42 Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Brother, let me remove the speck that is in more

  • The Unforgiving Servant Series

    Contributed by Roshelle Brenneise on Jun 6, 2021

    Peter asked a question.... How many times must I forgive? Jesus responded by telling a story.

    January 23, 2021 The Context: Peter asked Jesus a question: “How many times do I have to forgive the person who sins against me… 7 times?” Peter’s question was not intended to get Jesus’ opinion so much as it was to toot his own horn of grace and mercy --- Toot! Toot! You see, the Rabbis more

  • Whatever Happened To Reconciliation?

    Contributed by Boomer Phillips on Mar 4, 2022
    based on 1 rating

    Reconciliation begins with confrontation; being brave enough to approach someone to say, “Hey, we need to talk about something.” Rick Warren says that running from a problem and pretending it doesn’t exist is cowardice.

    Our sermon for this morning is entitled, “Whatever Happened to Reconciliation?” It seems as though there’s not a lot of reconciliation happening in our churches today among Christians. Probably the reason why is because reconciliation begins with confrontation; or rather, being brave enough to more

  • “how Are We To Approach Someone Who Has Offended Us?" Series

    Contributed by Dave Mcfadden on Aug 18, 2014

    If God calls me to speak to a person who has offended me, how do I go about it?

    When we have been offended, we must forgive, which we can do without saying anything to the offender. In fact, the Bible says it is a good thing if was can forgive and then overlook an offense. “It is to one’s glory to overlook an offense.” - Proverbs 19:11 (NIV) So, as a more

  • “when Should We Approach Someone Who Has Offended Us?” Series

    Contributed by Dave Mcfadden on Jul 30, 2014

    Though we can forgive without ever speaking to the offender about their offense, sometimes, God might lead us to do so.

    Today, we are going to move from a consideration of forgiveness to thinking together about reconciliation. We have said that without forgiveness, reconciliation is not possible. Reconciliation results with the offended person forgives and the offending person repents. Forgiveness + Repentance more

  • Handing Over The Keys

    Contributed by Mari Larson on Sep 7, 2014

    The authority to forgive (The Office of the Keys) has been given to us, but we don't use it.

    Church life on the prairies of the Midwest is often quite different from church life here (in Arizona). Small congregations of Norwegian, Swedish, Danish, Finnish, and German origins are slowly dying out, and since we no longer preach in the languages of our mother-lands (Thank God!), and because more

  • Love One Another

    Contributed by William Baeta on Sep 4, 2014

    “Owe no one anything, except to love each other, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law”. (Romans 13:8)

    Theme: Love one another Text: Ezek. 33:1-9; Rom. 13:8-14; Matt. 18:15-20 A frequently asked question is why there is so much suffering in the world and why God is doing nothing about it? Why are there sickness, poverty, hate, violence and war? Why are there loneliness, emptiness, depression and more

  • Biblical Finger Wagging Series

    Contributed by Fr Mund Cargill Thompson on Sep 6, 2014

    How do we deal with anger, sin and disagreement in our communities? Does Matt 18:15-17 inspire us to deep dastedely discipline or do we need to read it in the context of the rest of Matthew 18?

    How do we handle Sin? Anger? Conflict? Disagreement? Human beings are not very good at dealing with these things. “She’s not my friend any more” “She said this” “he did that” It happens at school, and we adults keep doing it. According to some more

  • Church Government

    Contributed by Alexander Richard on Jul 27, 2014

    Church government is a necessary element in the body of Christ which serves to establish and maintain order. A church without orderliness will be chaotic in all her activities. This teaching is going to teach about church Government.

    I. The Origin Of Church Government. A. Government itself started by God and was a direct commandment to Noah after the flood. In theology it is called, (The Dispensation of human Government) (Gen.9:5-6) B.Church Government started with Christ, the head of the church (Col. 1:8;Matt. more

  • How Do You Resolve Sin In The Church; Jesus Knows.

    Contributed by Gordon Mcculloch on Jan 18, 2014

    Our goal is to live for one another; yet time and circumstances do not allow us that luxury and we fail. Most importantly we let God down, and when we do so, we feel bad; but Jesus knew that, and so, he tells us what to do, if we can only take his advice.

    Summary: Our goal is to live for one another; yet time and circumstances do not allow us that luxury and we fail. Most importantly we let God down, and when we do so, we feel bad; but Jesus knew that, and so, he tells us what to do, if we can only take his advice. Exodus 12:1-14 Psalm more

  • Resolve A Better Relationship With People Series

    Contributed by Mark Jones on Feb 15, 2014

    Last week we discussed what it meant to love with a testimony. This week we will talk about one major obstacle to loving biblically. Below is the outline notes to the message.

    In our relationship to God, we were challenged in a resolve to repent of our sins, to fear God more, to surrender our idols, to think with a godly mindset, to remember His sacrifice for us, and to love biblically. Loving biblically is not a feeling or an erotic passion. To love biblically takes more

  • Pattern For Conduct In The Church Series

    Contributed by John Lowe on Sep 1, 2017

    When Paul and John Mark had a falling out, the dispute was so sharp that each man took a new assistant and traveled in a different direction; Barnabas took Mark and sailed to Cyprus, and Paul chose Silas and departed for Cilicia.

    Capernaum Lesson: Pattern for Conduct in the Church Matthew 18:15-20 In Matthew 18:15-20, Jesus gave His procedure for dealing with people problems that arise within a church. There is no perfect church, because there are no perfect people. I heard a man say one time, “I wouldn’t belong more
