    Too often, Christians can become so busy in their lives that they choke the word of God out of it. Too many of us are the thorny soil at times. This sermon helps us remember what our priorities should be.

Is that growth visible to others? Am I more holy this month or year than I was last year? These are all important questions we ...read more

    Which type of soil is your faith planted in? For many I am afraid that they are not planted in the good soil.

    “Parable of the Sower” Introduction It seems odd to me that all Christians respond differently to God’s Word. It is weird to me that we can all come to church and hear the same sermon and even sit in the same pew, but some take something away from it and others don’t. We all respond ...read more
