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 by Humbling Ourselves

Jan 15, 2024  Elisha Freeman  — Someone once said that ‘Pride is one of the few diseases where people get sick except for the one who has it’. What is the key for us to hear/read God’s word and translate it into action so that life can be lived well? Our Scripture text will remind us that the key lies with an attitude and mindset that God highly favors in those who would follow Him.

Remember God in a Time of Scarcity

Oct 31, 2021  Elisha Freeman — As we enter into the holiday season, we begin a series of lessons focused on helping us develop a heart, mind, and life of gratitude. For our first lesson, we go to a familiar passage in Deuteronomy where Moses reminds Israel and us that the source of all blessing is the Lord. We are to remember Him, not forget Him, and ultimately listen to Him in all circumstances.

Faith in Action – 1

Apr 11, 2021 — Elisha Freeman — the Bible emphasizes the importance of faith in the life of a Christian in Hebrews 11:6. However, faith is not designed to be stagnant. Faith is to grow and it is to act. In the first lesson of our new sermon series, we turn our attention to the book of James and are challenged to by him to move our faith from a place of stationary to a place of action.
