Thanksgiving 2022

Nov 20, 2022 — Elisha Freeman  Feeling grateful but not expressing it is like wrapping a present but never giving. (William Arthur Ward) This week begins the thanksgiving holiday. Many of us are planning for family and friends, we are planning menus and schedules, and will be busy. Among the the hustle, we will pause and give thanks to God and count our blessings. One blessing we need to have at the top of the list in which we are thankful is the people God has brought into our life. Our lesson this morning comes from 2 Corinthians 8:16-24 where the Apostle Paul stops and expresses thanks to God for Titus.

We Agree on One Baptism

Nov 06, 2022 — Elisha Freeman    As we continue our series entitled ‘We agree’, we come to the subject of baptism. A subject that comes with many questions and some confusion. What is baptism? Why is it important? What does it accomplish? Is baptism worth giving time and attention? This morning we will seek out the answers to these questions as we focus on the ‘One baptism’ of the New Testament.

Meditations on Raleigh

Oct 16, 2022 — Elisha Freeman  Our city was shaken with the tragedy that took place on Thursday. Familiar feelings of breaking hearts, anxiousness, fear, disappointment, and anger were produced. As followers of Christ, how do we respond? What do we say? Where is God? These and so many other questions flood our mind. This morning let’s meditate on God’s Word and on our city.

We Agree on One Word

Oct 02, 2022  Elisha Freeman — This morning we embark on a three month series that is entitled ‘We Agree”. Unity among Christians in the local church is essential and vital. Unity was of such great importance that in John 17, Jesus prays for it. What exactly are we to have unity on? On what things must we agree? This morning we start the journey by focusing on God’s word that is known as the Bible.

House Rules: Welcome One Another

Sep 11, 2022 — Elisha Freeman  The Lord is adding to our family and for that we are thankful. God’s plan for the local church is to be in unity with one another but not to be in uniformity. How do we approach one another to ensure that no matter what we see or experience, everyone knows their welcome in God’s house? This is our question to explore and allow the Bible to answer in our quest to become God’s house that builds each other up.

Heaven Bound

Aug 28, 2022 — Tom Shamblee  Do we dream? If so, what do we dream about? Many studies have pointed out that dreaming in so many ways leads to success. They sight some reasons such as it is the first step of achieving goals, helps us find meaning and purpose in life, gives us a sense of accomplishment and that those who dream are generally happier people. In John 14, after Jesus had shocked His disciples about what was about to happen to Him and to them, He wanted them to dream of Heaven, of that place He was preparing for them and that He would return for them so they could once again be with Him where He would be. Today we will discuss how our dreams of Heaven can motivate us and help us get though each day as wait for Him to return for us and take us Home.
