Immanuel, God with Us

Dec 19, 2021 – Elisha Freeman   While the Christmas season is full of joy, there are many of us who find it to be a time of great struggle. The birth of Jesus is not full of angels singing, wise men searching and worshipping, or a husband and wife being full of faith. There is weeping, lament, hurt, darkness, and other unfortunate realities. What do we learn from this? What is God’s response and answer? These and more we will seek to study and allow the Bible to answer.

Risen Savior – Easter 2021

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.

Some of Us Stay (Easter 2019)

Apr 21, 2019 – Elisha Freeman

When all the people woke up on the first Sunday after Jesus’ death & burial, what do you think their expectations for that day were? What are your expectations for today? Many of us little to no expectations, not because we do not believe, but because there are other things in the way. These things make us feel “stuck”. This morning we are going to be reminded that the Resurrection of Jesus overcomes our lowest expectations and empowers us to move forward with our lives
