Who is Jesus? The One who Helps

Apr 14, 2024   Elisha Freeman — In an attempt to emphasize the humanity of Jesus, Dorothy Sayers once said that ‘Jesus Christ is the only God who has a date in history’.

Living the Word: Old to New

Apr 16, 2o23 — Elisha Freeman  The crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus are the cornerstone elements of the Gospel. Jesus dies for our sin to offer the opportunity of forgiveness and is resurrected to provide hope and victory. However, the Gospel is more than a feel good story. The Gospel is God’s good news of life. Life in the present and in the future. The New Testament describes life in the present as ‘new life’. What is this new life? This morning we will turn to Ephesians 4:17-24 for our answers and our challenge to live this new life to the glory of God.

Jesus and His Resurrection: A Good Morning

Apr 09, 2023 — Elisha Freeman  When the resurrected Jesus encountered the woman in the garden, he greeted them with the equivalent of a ‘Good Morning’.

Our lesson this morning focus’ on these questions and more so that our faith and hope can be strengthened with the reality of the angel’s words: ‘He is not here, He is risen’.

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.
