Thanksgiving 2022

Nov 20, 2022 — Elisha Freeman  Feeling grateful but not expressing it is like wrapping a present but never giving. (William Arthur Ward) This week begins the thanksgiving holiday. Many of us are planning for family and friends, we are planning menus and schedules, and will be busy. Among the the hustle, we will pause and give thanks to God and count our blessings. One blessing we need to have at the top of the list in which we are thankful is the people God has brought into our life. Our lesson this morning comes from 2 Corinthians 8:16-24 where the Apostle Paul stops and expresses thanks to God for Titus.

We Agree on One Baptism

Nov 06, 2022 — Elisha Freeman    As we continue our series entitled ‘We agree’, we come to the subject of baptism. A subject that comes with many questions and some confusion. What is baptism? Why is it important? What does it accomplish? Is baptism worth giving time and attention? This morning we will seek out the answers to these questions as we focus on the ‘One baptism’ of the New Testament.

House Rules: Serve

Sept 18, 2022 Elisha Freeman – In the New Testament, Christians are known by many designations. Christians are called disciples, children of God, and saints among a host of other names. There is one designation that each Christian must be called and must prove with their life and that is designation ‘servant’. This morning with our last house rule, we take a look at Jesus and how He sets the emphasis, example, and expectation that each Christian is to be a servant.

House Rules: Welcome One Another

Sep 11, 2022 — Elisha Freeman  The Lord is adding to our family and for that we are thankful. God’s plan for the local church is to be in unity with one another but not to be in uniformity. How do we approach one another to ensure that no matter what we see or experience, everyone knows their welcome in God’s house? This is our question to explore and allow the Bible to answer in our quest to become God’s house that builds each other up.

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.

More Than Conquerors Because of God’s Love

Aug 14, 2022 — Elisha Freeman  One commentator approached Romans 8:31-39 with these words, ‘[This section] demands reflection and not interpretation.’ In one of the most joyful conclusions of any chapter in the Bible, God’s goes to great lengths to remind us of the depth, width, and height of His love for us. Today, we will reflect on this.

More Than Conquerors Against Sin

Jul 03, 2022 — Elisha Freeman    The book of Romans is considered the cathedral of the Christian faith. If this is the case, then Romans 8 is the sanctuary of the cathedral. It is the Bible chapter of the NT that provides instant comfort, strength, and encouragement. This morning we begin a two month walk through this powerful chapter for timely lessons.

Faith: What is it?

Jun 26, 2022  Adam Hudson —

Why is it so difficult for many Christians to develop a strong faith in God? The one thing that is so essential for every Christian is having a strong faith in God and Jesus Christ. My goal today is to try and provide us with an understanding of the things that hampers the growth of our faith in Jehovah God and His Son Jesus Christ. And provide the things that increase our faith.
