  • Sabbath Series

    Contributed by Tom Fuller on Dec 14, 2009
    based on 2 ratings

    A lot of people have had questions about the purpose of the Sabbath. Jesus takes it head on and reveals a lot about how we should live our lives.

    Last time we ended with Jesus promising rest and peace for anyone who would come to Him and take His yoke—a yoke where He does the heavy lifting—no more striving to earn God’s favor by being good—only submitting lordship over your life to Him. The Jews got a picture of the rest of God through the more

  • Knowing When To Break The Rules

    Contributed by Joseph Smith on May 3, 2009
    based on 2 ratings

    Jesus’ encounter with the Syrophoenician woman admits several interpretations, all of which teach us: give what is needed rather than what is wanted; teach others rather than do for them; watch your motives.

    Just when you think you have your life routines down pat, settled and secure, something comes along and upsets the whole pattern. Just when you think you have your life all organized, something comes up to discombobulate it! Just when you think you know the rules by which you govern your more

  • The Old Rules Uncloaked

    Contributed by Joseph Smith on Nov 13, 2009
    based on 1 rating

    MLK Sunday: In the beloved community we no longer need to think of over and under. The old way is a prison; Christ sees us as sinners in need of grace, and therefore all children of His, family.

    When our children were small, they liked to play games with us. But they liked it best when they could win. Whether it was crazy eights, or chutes and ladders, or just hide-and-go-seek, our children loved to play games as long as they could win. If they lost too much they would burst into tears and more

  • Wise And Wiser Series

    Contributed by Ed Vasicek on May 31, 2017

    Wisdom is about making good choices, and it is also about know what to typically expect in life and in dealing with otherås. We can always gain more wisdom as we incorporate particular concepts.

    Wise and Wiser (Proverbs 25:1-7) 1. Last week, I finally carved out some time to water blast our back deck. Between rain, cold, and busy schedules, it was no easy task. 2. Neither is water blasting. Last time I did it, 3 years ago, not such a good result; it would cut little trails into the more

    Contributed by Mark Opperman on Aug 29, 2011
    based on 4 ratings

    God's law is good because He is good; Sin is bad and deceives us into rebelling against God; The effects of sin are ugly, but God wants to forgive and restore us to Himself!

    The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly Romans 7:7-13 7 What shall we say, then? Is the law sin? Certainly not! Indeed I would not have known what sin was except through the law. For I would not have known what coveting really was if the law had not said, "Do not covet." 8 But sin, seizing the more

  • Rule Breakers?

    Contributed by Thomas Wilson on Aug 18, 2011
    based on 1 rating

    A general sermon - not too deep on the relationship of rule breakers and our Biblical heroes and Jesus Christ.

    And so from last week, the essence of the message that I delivered is quite simple, there are times you can be between the rock and the hard place, not through your choice, not through your own actions but you’re there because of a course of actions that others have taken. Our lives are more

    While we should stand uncompromisingly against things strictly forbidden by Scripture, we should not create additional rules formed from our opinions and give them the same standing as God’s law.

Our day of worship is an example. I grew up being taught not to work on Sunday. For the most part, all more
