Who is Jesus? The Human One Bound to Time

May 05, 2024  Elisha Freeman — It is hard to imagine that an amazing reality of the miracle of the incarnation of Jesus is that to become human required Him to be bound to time. As God, Jesus is beyond time. He created time and controls time, but in humbling himself to become human Jesus binds himself to time. While on earth, how did Jesus view time? Approach time? Use time? These questions and more we will explore this morning.

Jesus: The Eternal One

Jan 21, 2024  Elisha Freeman — Who is Jesus? A question that had to be answered in Jesus’ day and needs to be answered in our day. Is He just a great moral and ethical teacher, a religious guru who had some good things to say, or is Jesus more? He and the writers of the Gospel’s will answer that Jesus is more; in fact Jesus is God! This morning we are going back to one of these writers and see why these claims were made and how they help us answer our question.

We Agree on One Word

Oct 02, 2022  Elisha Freeman — This morning we embark on a three month series that is entitled ‘We Agree”. Unity among Christians in the local church is essential and vital.

House Rules: Love One Another

Aug 21, 2022  Elisha Freeman  This morning we are starting a series of lessons entitle ‘House Rules’.

This morning our first house rule is: Love.

More Than Conquerors Because God Works

Aug 7, 2022   Elisha Freeman —  Thomas Merton said, ‘Useless and hateful in itself, suffering without faith is a curse.’ Our series brings us to a top five promise made by God in the entire Bible. Considering the backdrop of this promise, a strong, steadfast faith is required for it to have an effect in and our life. What does this promise due in the midst of suffering and how does it help bring about the purpose of God?

Lessons from Youth Ministry

May 22, 2022 — Charlie Vasquez  What are the pillars of youth ministry? What can we learn from teenagers about being better Christians? How can we be the greatest in the kingdom of Heaven? This morning, we look at how teenagers and youth ministry look a lot like the early church of Acts 2.

The Secret to Contentment

Nov 21, 2021 — Elisha Freeman — Christian contentment is that sweet, inward, quiet, gracious frame of spirit which freely submits to and delights in God’s wise and fatherly disposal in every condition.” (Jeremiah Burroughs) In our final lesson in our series of “Thankfulness” we reach a familiar text this discusses contentment in circumstances.

Ezra/Nehemiah: Rise and Build Together – 2

Jul 11, 2021 – Elisha Freeman — Israel hears the proclamation of Cyrus and returns to Judah. 50,000 Jews settle in their own place starting the process of picking up the pieces and setting down roots for their families. It would be easy to concentrate on day-to-day life along with its responsibilities. However, Israel reminds us that the Church is more than just our earthly families. This morning we will see how Israel intentionally gathers together in a specific place at a specific time for a specific purpose and how the Church should adopt the same mindset and practice
