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 17, 2021 –Elisha Freeman — We continue our sermon series in the Book of Revelation. In this lesson, we will cover Revelation 8-11.

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?

Jan 12, 2020 – Elisha Freeman — Jimmy Houston is credited with saying ‘Every choice we make in lief has the possibility of changing our lives forever.’ Many of us have made spiritual resolutions for the New Year that we hope bring us closer to God and deepen our relationship with Him.

Dec 08, 2019 — Elisha Freeman — What are some of your favorite Christmas song? Did you know that in Luke 1-2, there were five songs sung prior, during, and after Jesus’ birth?

Dec 01, 2019 — Elisha Freeman — An exciting tradition shared among most families is that of making the all important Christmas list. It is the list we send to Santa and the list we give to our families to request certain toys and presents for Christmas. Did you know that the Gospel of Matthew begins with a list. It certainly is an odd way to begin a biography but this list is vital to the foundation of the Gospel. This morning we will put this list under the microscope and be reminded that Jesus completes the story told by the Old Testament.
