“Children / Fathers / Young Adults”

The Word of God and His commandment of Love is for young and old and everything in between. But it plays out slightly differently within our different stages of life. Same message. Increasing understanding.

“Whoever loves his brother abides in the light, and in him there is no cause for stumbling.”

1 John 2:10

SCRIPTURE USED:

  • 1 John 2:7-14

“Walking in Light”

We apologize for our technical issues today, including low sound. We are addressing it. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

If we are to “walk in the Light,” it means that we can’t also walk in the darkness of our sins. We either follow God’s way or ours. His is Light. Ours, darkness. The fact is, we will walk in our ways and, when we do, we need to humbly confess and let Jesus advocate on our behalf to God – and He always wins! Jesus wins! Light wins! So we win!

“Whoever keeps [God’s] word, in him truly the love of God is perfected.”

1 John 2:5

SCRIPTURE USED:

  • 1 John 1:5—2:6

“JESUS: The Word of Life”

It wasn’t just the those who lived at the time of Jesus who were witnesses of Him; we are too! And as such, we are to give witness about Him! This doesn’t just bring others true Life, but also brings us complete joy!

“We are writing these things so that your joy may be complete.”

1 John 1:4

SCRIPTURE USED:

  • 1 John 1:1-4

Truth. Love. JESUS!

This is the theme for our new sermon series on 1 John beginning Sunday, September 6, 2020!

There are some major themes in 1 John, including Truth, Obedience, Faithfulness, the Love of this World, the Love of Others, Living in the Word, and, of course, JESUS!

It’s a book that reminds us to be faithful to the Truth taught to us in the Bible and to live out that truth in Love and Actions for others – just as Jesus did for us.

This will be a proper walk through and, as such, will be a series longer than our usual ones – but well worth it!

Join us live or online on Sundays at 10:00 AM!

“It’s OK to HAVE SEX but …”

Today in our “It’s OK to … but …” series: SEX.

Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled, for God will judge the sexually immoral and adulterous.

Hebrews 13:4 (ESV)

Sex is one of the great gifts of God – and one of the most abused. Abused from misuse and abused from vilification.

How – and why – do we, as Christians, recapture the beauty and joy given and found in this wonderful and intimate act?

Join us and find out!

SCRIPTURES USED:

  • 1 Corinthians 6:12-20
  • 1 Corinthians 7:1-9
  • Hebrews 13:4
  • Proverbs 5:15-20

“It’s OK to DOUBT but …”

Today in our “It’s OK to … but …” series: the topic of DOUBT.

Why are you troubled, and why do doubts arise in your hearts?

Luke 24:38 (ESV)

Belief and trust in God is a paramount tenet of the Christian faith, yet all Christians – all people! – doubt.

Does that mean we are no longer Christian?

Does that mean we have lost our faith?

As Christians, how can we still have faith and yet doubt?

Join us and see.

SCRIPTURES USED:

  • Luke 24:36-43
  • James 1:6-8
  • Hebrews 11:1-2
  • Romans 4:1-3, 23-25; 5:1

“It’s OK to GRIEVE but …”

We continue our sermon series, “It’s OK to … but …” with the topic of GRIEF.

It’s OK to Grieve, but …

The LORD is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.

Psalm 34:18 (ESV)

Grief can be overwhelming and shadow everything and everyone else around us. But God gave us this emotion, too. We even see it played out in the Lord Jesus!

What do we do when grieved?

How do we endure?

What does it mean for a Christian to be grieved?

Join us as we explore!

SCRIPTURES USED:

  • Romans 12:15
  • Psalm 34:18
  • Isaiah 53:1-5
  • John 11:28-44
  • 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18

“It’s OK to BE ANGRY but …”

Today we begin our new sermon series, “It’s OK to … but …” with the topic of ANGER.

Be angry and do not sin; do not let the sun do down on your anger, and give no opportunity to the devil.

Ephesians 4:26-27 (ESV)

God gave us emotions, including anger, for a reason. But like all things, we need to use them within the bounds God has given us. Outside those bounds lie danger and sin. So, how can we be angry but not sin?

SCRIPTURES USED:

  • Mark 11:15-17
  • Ephesians 4:25-27
  • James 1:19-20

“It’s OK to BE A DEMOCRAT/REPUBLICAN but …”

Today we look at the divisive topic of cultural politics in our “It’s OK to … but …” series. Specifically, that of being a Christian and also a DEMOCRAT or REPUBLICAN.

The LORD said, “They have rejected Me from being king over them.”

1 Samuel 8:7 (ESV)

The amount of venom sprayed forth from people (many Christians!) onto others simply because of their party affiliation and views is disheartening and, often, disgusting.

What should be the mindset, attitude, and actions of a Christian within the realm of our cultural politics – and why?

Join us for this special topic.

SCRIPTURES USED:

  • Romans 13:1-7
  • 1 Samuel 8:4-8
