House Rules: Love One Another

Aug 21, 2022  Elisha Freeman  This morning we are starting a series of lessons entitle ‘House Rules’. God has been adding to our number in a variety of ways: baptisms, babies being born, new members from those moving into the area, and new members from those seeking and finding a church home. With this growth comes the need for us to stretch and accommodate. To that end, what do we, as a church, live by to ensure that the purpose of the church is met? This morning our first house rule is: Love.

Divergent: Loving like God

Jun 19, 2022  Elisha Freeman — As we arrive to the final lesson in our series entitled ‘Divergent: A Study through the Sermon on the Mount’, we come to the most challenging and convicting of Jesus’ teachings: loving our enemies. If we are to make a difference that God intends for us to make, then it will begin and end with love. Love for each other, love for others, especially love for enemies. This morning Jesus will remind us of the power placed in our hands to make a difference if we so choose.

The Kingdom: A Cross Shaped People

Mar 06, 2022 Elisha Freeman — Building on the previous month’s series, the kingdom of God is unique from all other kingdoms due to its focus on the cross. The Cross of Christ is the central theme and message of the Bible. This morning we will be reminded what the cross means for the world and how followers of Jesus must become a cross shaped people.

How to Lose a Kingdom

Aug 02, 2020 – Elisha Freeman — Through free will and life, God gives us the opportunity to build a ‘kingdom”. In doing so, it is the hope that we will build a kingdom that is good and healthy. Where can we look in the Bible for lessons how to NOT build a kingdom and how TO build one? In this lesson, we turn to the historical books of 1-2 Kings for our answers.

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.
