Sept 19, 2021 — Elisha Freeman — “History repeats itself but in such a cunning disguise that we never detect the resemblance until the damage is done.’ (Sydney J. Harris) This morning we continue with our series God’s grace poured out when we fail and fall short of His ideal and ours. What happens when our failure is not new, rather it is a repeat of a previous failure. What happens when we fail to learn rom history? Is God’s grace there to meet us and help us when we did not learn our lesson? This morning we will discover the answer to this probing question.

A great truth about the Bible is that it records the success and failures of those who followed God.

Mar 07, 2021 — Elisha Freeman — Christians everywhere in our country are at a crossroads. Our church is no different. The crossroads is that we can choose to allow the events (i.e. Covid, Masks, Social Distancing, the Election, Politics, and others) to shape our hearts and our attitudes and make us cold, cynical, uncooperative, create division, etc or we will can choose to have a heart that focused on Jesus, the way He lives, the love, peace, unity that is promoted.
