Jan 09, 2022 — Elisha Freeman At the first of the year, one of the prominent resolutions is to get health. At the top of the list or near the top of the list to make this happen is to ‘Get Active’ or ‘Get moving’. Exercise increases the probability of accomplishing the goal to get health. The NT emphasizes that Christians and their faith need to be living and active. In short, we need to ‘Get Moving’. Over the next few weeks, we will take a good look at how we can get moving and be effective for the mission of God for the Church.
Jan 02, 2022 — Elisha Freeman The New Year has arrived and we are full of optimism, hope, and resolutions. We are eager to start fresh, learning from the past and moving into the future. When it comes to our spiritual lives, what can we learn from the beginnings of Jesus’ ministry so that we can start strong and finish strong?

For others, there is nothing much to enjoy. For others, they are indifferent towards it all. If we combine Matthew 1-2 and Luke 1-2, there are a variety of attitudes and responses to Jesus.

When it comes to our material goods and blessings, how do we remain content in a society that tells us we do not have enough or that we need the latest and greatest item? The Apostle Paul answers our question in a text to the young minister Timothy.
Nov 07, 2021 Elisha Freeman — We continue on with part two of our series of lessons centered on ‘Thanksgiving’. What would you say are some barriers to Thanksgiving?

Sept 19, 2021 — Elisha Freeman — “History repeats itself but in such a cunning disguise that we never detect the resemblance until the damage is done.’ (Sydney J. Harris) This morning we continue with our series God’s grace poured out when we fail and fall short of His ideal and ours.

Jul 11, 2021 – Elisha Freeman — Israel hears the proclamation of Cyrus and returns to Judah. 50,000 Jews settle in their own place starting the process of picking up the pieces and setting down roots for their families. It would be easy to concentrate on day-to-day life along with its responsibilities. However, Israel reminds us that the Church is more than just our earthly families. This morning we will see how Israel intentionally gathers together in a specific place at a specific time for a specific purpose and how the Church should adopt the same mindset and practice
