Faith: What is it?

Jun 26, 2022  Adam Hudson —

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.

 

Divergent: Loving like God

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.

Responding to Worry

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.

Get Moving with an Effective Example

Jan 09, 2022 — Elisha Freeman  At the first of the year, one of the prominent resolutions is to get health. At the top of the list or near the top of the list to make this happen is to ‘Get Active’ or ‘Get moving’. Exercise increases the probability of accomplishing the goal to get health. The NT emphasizes that Christians and their faith need to be living and active. In short, we need to ‘Get Moving’. Over the next few weeks, we will take a good look at how we can get moving and be effective for the mission of God for the Church.

Starting Over by Starting Strong

Jan 02, 2022 — Elisha Freeman  The New Year has arrived and we are full of optimism, hope, and resolutions. We are eager to start fresh, learning from the past and moving into the future. When it comes to our spiritual lives, what can we learn from the beginnings of Jesus’ ministry so that we can start strong and finish strong? This is the question we seek to answer with our lesson this morning.

Immanuel, God with Us

Dec 19, 2021 – Elisha Freeman   While the Christmas season is full of joy, there are many of us who find it to be a time of great struggle. The birth of Jesus is not full of angels singing, wise men searching and worshipping, or a husband and wife being full of faith. There is weeping, lament, hurt, darkness, and other unfortunate realities. What do we learn from this? What is God’s response and answer? These and more we will seek to study and allow the Bible to answer.

What kind of King?

Dec 05, 2021 — Elisha Freeman  The wise men travel to Jerusalem searching for the ‘king of the Jews’. This description is powerful picture of the role of Jesus prior to His birth, at His birth, and for the rest of time. This description also begs the question, what kind of King is Jesus? This morning we will seek to answer this question and how we can follow in His footsteps.
