Apr 17, 2022 Elisha Freeman — It has been at least two weeks since Jesus has been resurrected and Peter has not had an opportunity to speak with him. Does this mean Jesus is done with Peter? Can Peter return from his denial of Jesus when he was arrested? Does this mean the things that Jesus promised Peter in Matthew 16:15-18 are now going to someone else? Is there any hope for Peter? This morning we will read through the third resurrection appearance to answer our questions.
Apr 10, 2022 — Elisha Freeman Most of the recorded sermons found in the Book of Acts focus on the resurrection of Jesus.

Dec 05, 2021 — Elisha Freeman The wise men travel to Jerusalem searching for the ‘king of the Jews’.

This morning we will seek to answer this question and how we can follow in His footsteps.
Apr 04, 2921 — Elisha Freeman — Edgar Allan Poe’s poem “The Raven” ends with the author acknowledging the futility of the loss and the realization of hopelessness. Many of us know this feeling and reality very well as we battle hopelessness as a constant companion. The resurrection of Jesus reminds us that while the believer battles hopelessness there is not such thing as having no hope. Easter is about the revival of hope.

Jan 10, 2021 — Elisha Freeman — We resume our sermon series through the Book of Revelation with this letter. It is easy to get caught up with images and symbols of the letter and miss the overall points. In this lesson we are going to examine the source of war, pestilence, famine, death, and have two vital questions asked: 1) How long will God allow these to go on? 2) When the end comes who can stand before God?
