Unwavering Faith: Jesus & My Faith Pt 3

Mar 17, 2019 — Elisha Freeman

What does faith need to thrive? the Bible? God, Jesus, and the HS? Others? The answer to the previous questions is ‘Yes’ to all the above.

Unwavering Faith: Seeking God

Feb. 17, 2019 – Elisha Freeman

As the Hebrew writer makes the case for faith in Hebrews 11, a paramount verse is found in Hebrews 11:6.

December 23, 2018 – Elisha Freeman.

Lloyd John Ogilvie once said, ‘The thing we fear most is having lived our lives pleasantly, but to have made no measurable difference whatever.” Jesus tells us that we are the salt of the earth and the light of the world and if these two truth could be summed up in one word it would this: Influence. This morning we are going to learn the power of influence and that if 2019 is going to be different it is because we use our influence for good.

Pursuing the King in the Darkness (Christmas 2018)

Dec 02, 2018 –Elisha Freeman.

As the calendar turns and the Christmas season is ushered in and everything with it, we start a brand new series entitled ‘Pursuing the King.’ The holiday season is a paradox: joy and sorrow, peace and stress, and light and dark. These all exist and we can lose sight of Jesus and be taken off the path that leads to Him. What do we do when we encounter darkness and the light seems to go out? This morning we will seek to answer this question as we learn to Pursue the King in the Dark.
