   A Follower of Christ
   John 12:25-26; Mark 8:34-38
Speaker's Picture
Sunday Morning Service,  June 4, 2017
What does it truly mean to follow Christ? Jesus' summon to deny oneself and follow him was an invitation to salvation, not an offer of a higher life or a second step of faith following salvation. Every Christian is a disciple of Christ and needs to understand the requirements and realities of following Him.

   Peace that the World Cannot Give
   John 14:25-31
Speaker's Picture
Sunday Morning Service,  May 28, 2017
People long for peace in their personal lives. They long to have relief from the pressures and problems of life, to be without trouble and have no worries. While the world offers peace in many different temporary forms, the world's peace will always disappoint. In its place, Jesus offers his disciples real, lasting peace that will eliminate their worries and fears.

   Comfort for the Troubled
   John 14:15-26
Speaker's Picture
Sunday Morning Service,  May 21, 2017
The disciples were extremely troubled as they began to realize that Jesus was about to leave them and that they would not be able to go with him. Circumstances were about to change their entire lives and they were feeling insecure and worried about all that the future might bring. Jesus promises them special comfort through the ministry of the Holy Spirit, through his own presence, and through the love of the Father, if they will love him and keep his commandments.

   Watching and Waiting
   Luke 12:35-48
Speaker's Picture
Sunday School,  May 21, 2017
Every genuine believer is a servant of God. Watching and waiting is a familiar theme with at least three of the parables of Jesus. As God’s servants, we are expected to be faithfully doing our work when our Lord returns. Not only does Jesus teach us concerning the certainty of His return at an unexpected moment, but there is a strong implication in the parable that His servants will continue serving for an unspecified time before that return. This describes the period of time in which we are living now and until that moment, every believer ought to be longing for it to take place (Titus 2:13; Revelation 22:20) and loving it (II Timothy 4:8). Those who love the Lord will be prepared and ready for it to take place.

   A Mother Who Made A Difference
   1 Samuel 1:1-2:10
Speaker's Picture
Sunday Morning Service,  May 14, 2017
 
Being a mother is not easy! If you're a mother, you know that motherhood can be messy, and at times frustrating, and exhausting. Life doesn't always work out the way that we planned. Yet, in the midst of it all, God has a plan. Hannah can teach us several lessons when it comes to handling the difficulties of family life. How do we handle disappointment, discouragement, provocation and misunderstanding? Can God prevail even in the midst of what may appear to be a hopeless situation?

   Stop Worrying!
   John 14:1-14
Speaker's Picture
Sunday Morning Service,  May 7, 2017
Often the circumstances of our lives don't turn out the way that we expect. In the midst of that turmoil, it is easy to worry about how things are going, what will happen next and if everything will be okay in the end. The disciples have been on an emotional roller coaster leading up to John 14. Their expectations of the Messiah establishing his kingdom immediately have been dashed by his proclamation that he will be laying down his life for them, Jesus has told them that one of them would betray him, and Peter has been told that he will deny his Lord. Yet in the midst of all of this turmoil, Jesus commands his disciples to stop worrying and place their faith and trust completely in Him.

Sunday School,  May 7, 2017
God our father cares a great deal about each of us, His little ones. His care and compassion are great. Luke 15:1-7 illustrates God’s compassion and grace for the unsaved also.

   A Matter of the Heart
   John 13:21-38
Speaker's Picture
Sunday Morning Service,  April 30, 2017
Your heart drives much of what you do. Because of this reality, Solomon commands us to guard our hearts diligently, because all of our life flows out of our hearts. Jesus has much to teach about man's heart in John 13. He deals with an unregenerate heart, a Christ-like heart, and an overconfident heart. Good intentions are not enough. What is the condition of your heart today?

   The Rich Fool
   Luke 12:13-21
Speaker's Picture
Sunday School,  April 30, 2017
Jesus had much to say about money. Sixteen out of thirty-eight parables deal with how to handle money or possessions. While the Bible contains approximately 500 verses on prayer and less than 500 verses on faith, it contains more than 2,000 verses dealing with money and possessions. Why is this topic so important? Money is one of the greatest sources of anxiety, can become our god and steal our heart. In an attempt to teach a young man the proper place of money, Jesus shares with him this parable of the rich fool.
