Who is Jesus? I am the Light of the World

Thankful in All Circumstances

Oct 15, 2023 Elisha Freeman — A few weeks ago the Scriptures reminded us of what real love is; that Jesus sacrificed himself for our sins. What about real love in the church?

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.

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.
