Living the Word: On to Maturity

May 07, 2023  Elisha Freeman — Maya Angelou once said, ‘Most people don’t grow up, most people age. They find parking spaces, honor their credit cards, get married, have children, and call that maturity. What that is, is aging.’ God’s plan for the disciple of Jesus is grow and too mature. The same plan exists for a local church. Yet, why do many of us age in the faith but not mature? Our passage this morning provides us a warning in staying immature as well as offers ways for us to fulfill God’s expectation of growth.

Living the Word (RCC Theme for 2023)

Jan 08, 2023 — Elisha Freeman  This morning we embark on a journey to many things. Individually, we have made resolutions with the hopes our spiritual life will be richer and full of meaning. As a congregation, we want to build off the great work that God did among us last year. How will both be accomplished? What is needed to ensure that this year can be the most productive year possible? These questions and more will be our focus during the sermon this morning.

The Power of Oneness

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. This morning we will focus on these and be challenged to have a heart and attitude that promotes the way of God in our church and in our life.

Clothed with Christ

Oct 25, 2020 – Elisha Freeman — We have reached the last lesson in our unconventional series on the 2020 election. A reality that has bothered us this year and the election has stirred into a greater frenzy is the lack of harmony that is present. What can Christians do with the lack of harmony? How can we help restore it? We seek to answer these questions and more in our lesson this morning.

First Things First—Seek God

Jan 05, 2020 – Elisha Freeman — The New Year brings renewed optimism and goals for our lives. Among those is a deeper and more meaningful spiritual life. What if there was one Bible verse provided by Jesus that is so powerful that it can protect and redirect our hearts, our focus, and our pursuits to make our goals become a reality? This morning we are going to listen to Jesus teach us one of the most familiar and foundational truths of our spiritual lives.
