Jun 28, 2020 – Elisha Freeman – The issue and topic of race has been placed at the front of the line of a long list of items to discuss for our culture and society.

Apr 26, 2020 – Elisha Freeman – Soon after the Civil War ended, Abraham Lincoln was once asked how he would treat the “rebellious” southerners. Lincoln responded, “I will treat them as if they never left.” Our lesson today focuses on the treatment of Jesus to sinners. How and why does He treat them the way He does? The story of Luke 15:11-32 is the answer to our question.
Apr 19, 2020 – Elisha Freeman — Today our concept of following falls in the realm of social media. Unique to this is that we are able to follow at a distance. For one to be with Jesus, they must follow Him. However we cannot follow Jesus from a distance, nor can we follow Jesus without cost. Our lesson will cover a passage that is easily one of Jesus’ hardest teachings.
Apr 05, 2020 – Elisha Freeman – We have all been asked to introduce ourselves. We provide background information of who we are, where we grew up, what school we attended, and what we do for a living.

03/29/2020 – Elisha Freeman – Our lives have been turned upside down with the Corona Virus. Many of us are fearful, worried, and frustrated. In Luke 1:26ff we will read of Mary, the mother of Jesus, have her world turned upside down. It is how the Angel Gabriel responds that catches our attention. It is here that we learn that we don’t have to be afraid, that nothing is impossible with God, and that despite what is happening we can still serve.
Mar 08, 2020 – Elisha Freeman – The Book of Proverbs has over 30 references to money, riches, and wealth.

This morning we start our series on Wisdom that will help us to become prudent people.
