Jul 03, 2022 — Elisha Freeman The book of Romans is considered the cathedral of the Christian faith. If this is the case, then Romans 8 is the sanctuary of the cathedral.

Why is it so difficult for many Christians to develop a strong faith in God? The one thing that is so essential for every Christian is having a strong faith in God and Jesus Christ. My goal today is to try and provide us with an understanding of the things that hampers the growth of our faith in Jehovah God and His Son Jesus Christ. And provide the things that increase our faith.
Jun 19, 2022 Elisha Freeman — As we arrive to the final lesson in our series entitled ‘Divergent: A Study through the Sermon on the Mount’, we come to the most challenging and convicting of Jesus’ teachings: loving our enemies. If we are to make a difference that God intends for us to make, then it will begin and end with love. Love for each other, love for others, especially love for enemies. This morning Jesus will remind us of the power placed in our hands to make a difference if we so choose.
Jun 12, 2022 Elisha Freeman — What are the most quoted Bible verses from people? Did you know that ‘Judge not’ is in the top five of most lists and polls conducted. This statement made by Jesus has been used to extremeness. Some use it to eliminate all judgment and free themselves from correction offered in love and truth others have used to discredit the Bible in some places citing ‘contradiction’. What does Jesus actually mean with this statement and how can we learn to be different when it comes to exercising judgment?
Jun 05, 2022 –Elisha Freeman Today, we will recognize and honor our four high school seniors who have worked hard to achieve a milestone in their lives. Many of us will give them ‘best wishes’ and offer prayers for ‘success’ in their future endeavors. What makes for success in this life? Is it a diploma? Is it a college education? Is it a career? This morning we turn to a familiar text in the Old Testament and hear what God has to say to Joshua at a pivotal moment in his life and how he will have success moving forward.
May 29, 2022 — Elisha Freeman Someone once said ‘That we live our lives crucified between two thieves—the regrets of yesterday and the worries of tomorrow.’ How true that statement is for many of us. Worry is a powerful emotion and vice we contend with every day. How do we respond to worry when it rises? This morning Jesus will provide three gentle reminds of ways we can handle worry.
May 8, 2022 — Elisha Freeman Today is the day to celebrate and honor mothers. Mothers, grandmothers, aunts, and women in general do so much for our lives. This morning, we will read and study from an encounter that Jesus has with an unnamed woman whose faith is life-changing and motivates us to seek the same faith.
Apr 10, 2022 — Elisha Freeman Most of the recorded sermons found in the Book of Acts focus on the resurrection of Jesus. The resurrection is the bedrock of the Christian faith and the Bible provides evidence that it did happen. What practical implications should the resurrection have on our lives today and for the future? What decisions should we make today? We will seek to answer these and more in this morning’s lesson.
