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.

More Than Conquerors over Suffering

Jul 17, 2022 — Elisha Freeman  Tim Keller is quoted as saying ‘[Suffering] enables us to learn a very valuable lesson and that is: You don’t realize that Jesus is all you need until you know that Jesus is all you have.’ Suffering is one of the most complex and uncomfortable realities in this life. It affects everyone no matter how hard we plan and work to prevent it. When it arrives at our door step, how is the Christian to respond? We seek to answer this question and more this morning.

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.

Growing Up

Love is supreme but it is not the only aspect of the Christian life we are to live.

Revelations 4-5

Dec 13, 2020 – Elisha Freeman — Revelation 6-19 are chapters that will communicate to the church in the first century that tough times are coming. However, before all of that happens, Jesus opens a door and invites His church to look up and see God in heaven. This morning we will be reminded of the beauty, value, worth, and hope of heaven.

First Things First: Eternity

Jan 19, 2020 — Elisha Freeman — Our focus for the month of January has been on the things the Bible tells us is most important. As we bring this series to a close we turn our attention to answering the following question ‘As a Christian what is my #1 goal?’ The answer to this question impacts my present and my future. May this morning motivate us to live intentionally for an eternity with God.

Running for Your Life: Training for the Race

Jun 02, 2019 — Elisha Freeman —

Every athlete trains to best at their sport. The success we see from the athletes is built during their training sessions that no one else sees. The same is true for the Christian. We run the race “set before us” successfully by following a certain training regimen. This morning our focus will be on our day-to-day training and how it helps us run our race of faith.
