Sept 17, 2023 Elisha Freeman — Many of us are Christians. In and through faith, we repented of our sin and were baptized to have that sin washed away. Through those responses, God calls us His children. What happens when God’s children sin? What do we think? What do we believe? What do we do? The Apostle John will remind us and encourage us that even when we sin, our Heavenly Father created and maintains the opportunity to be forgiven.
Sep 10, 2023 — Elisha Freeman The Holy Spirit through John makes a bold statement about the reality of eternal life: Eternal life is accessible and can be lived now not just later. What does eternal life look like now? What is a visible fruit that someone has passed from spiritual death into spiritual life? Our sermon this morning will concentrate on these questions.
Sep 03, 2023 Elisha Freeman — What is life? Where is life found? How is life obtained? For hundreds of years, humanity has wrestled with these questions and continues to wrestle. It is into this discussion, that the Holy Spirit inspires the Apostle John to preach a sermon, written in letter format, to instill confidence in the believer and follower of Jesus. Confidence is found in having life only given by Jesus the Christ
Aug 27, 2023 — Tom Shamblee The world we see is not our home and Paul describes our bodies as tents, or temporary dwellings. (Do we see them as such?) Therefore, we are stationed here, in this foreign land, as representatives of God with a specific message He has entrusted to each of us. Today, we will be talking about what it means to be an ambassador of Christ and His representative to the world we live in.
Aug 20, 2023 Elisha Freeman — An unfortunate truth of our lives is that there will be people who will do bad things. Sometimes those things are intentional and sometimes they are unintentional. Either way, when that happens, what do we do? How do we respond? What is the best way to be like God? These are the questions we will seek to answer this morning.
Aug 13, 2023 Elisha Freeman — One aspect of the Biblical faith that is hard to accept, much less live through, is being tested. Sometimes, God allows the testing and sometimes God does the testing. When it comes our way, how do we pass the test? This morning we will take a look at Genesis 22 and Hebrews 11 at the record of Abraham’s greatest test and learn how to pass the test that comes into our faith journey.
Aug 06. 2023 Elisha Freeman — Everyone who is committed to following God must learn a vital lesson, that lesson is waiting. Waiting is hard, long, and challenging. How do we wait well? What reassurances does God provide while we wait? All of these and more will be answered as we examine Genesis 15:1-6 this morning.
Jul 30, 2023 — Scott Woolens — In today’s lesson, we’ll explore the life of David, son of Jesse, a major character in the story of God’s chosen people, Israel. He was a good king but not a perfect one. His life is full of heroic conquests and tragic misdirections and yet he points the way to a faith that will not let go of the God of Israel because the God of Israel will not let go of him.
