God’s Summer Playlist: Planted and Blessed

Jun 02, 2024   Elisha Freeman — All of us are ready for the summer and one way we have prepared for summer is that we have put a playlist together on our phone or the music app of our choice. God’s playlist is found in the book of Psalms and for the months of June and July we will shuffle through God’s playlist and learn invaluable insights and application that will enhance our walk with Jesus.

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’. This morning we continue to ask the question ‘Who is Jesus?’, however we shift from the divinity of Jesus to the humanity of Jesus and how Jesus uses His humanity to help us today.

Quieting our internal soundtracks

Sept 24, 2023  Todd Armstrong  — At some point, all of us are faced with moments of internal doubt and/or disappointment. At times, we can give in to our internal mental soundtracks that attempt to have us focus on our shortcomings and feelings of unworthiness. Yet, how can we silence these internal soundtracks and with what can we replace them? We will look at Peter and one of his encounters with Jesus for encouragement and an example of strength.

Living the Word-Abraham: Passing the Test

Aug 13, 2023  Elisha Freeman — One aspect of the Biblical faith that is hard to accept, much less live through, is being tested. Sometimes, God allows the testing and sometimes God does the testing. When it comes our way, how do we pass the test? This morning we will take a look at Genesis 22 and Hebrews 11 at the record of Abraham’s greatest test and learn how to pass the test that comes into our faith journey.

The Shepherd King

Jul 30, 2023 — Scott Woolens  — In today’s lesson, we’ll explore the life of David, son of Jesse, a major character in the story of God’s chosen people, Israel. He was a good king but not a perfect one.  His life is full of heroic conquests and tragic misdirections and yet he points the way to a faith that will not let go of the God of Israel because the God of Israel will not let go of him.

Mothers Day 2023

May 14, 2023  Elisha Freeman — Today we honor our mothers, grand mothers, aunts, and other influential women in our life. This morning we turn our attention to the Old Testament’s most pious woman, Hannah. Hannah’s piety and faith shine through immense external and internal adversity. How is she able to maintain this faith and continue to follow the Lord? What can we learn from her that can be applied to our spiritual lives? We will seek to answer these questions today.

A Soul at Rest

Mar 12, 2023  Elisha Freeman — When asked ‘How are you?’ Many of us has said and received, “I am doing good, just busy.” Many believe and wear busyness as a badge of honor, equating busyness with productivity. What if being busy isn’t productive? What is being busy is to be unhealthy? What if being busy is to put our soul in a toxic condition? This morning we will learn from our good Shepherd, Jesus, on how to respond to being busy and allow for more healthy rhythms to be cultivated for our lives.

Living the Word by Humbling Ourselves

Jan 15, 2024  Elisha Freeman  — Someone once said that ‘Pride is one of the few diseases where people get sick except for the one who has it’. What is the key for us to hear/read God’s word and translate it into action so that life can be lived well? Our Scripture text will remind us that the key lies with an attitude and mindset that God highly favors in those who would follow Him.
