Today in our
series: “It’s OK to … but …” 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!
1 Corinthians 6:12-20 1 Corinthians 7:1-9 Hebrews 13:4 Proverbs 5:15-20
Today in our
series: the topic of “It’s OK to … but …” TRUSTING GOD when we HURT.
We are talking about trusting God even amidst our hurt and pain. God is good!
Luke 8:40-56 John 6:67 John 11:35 Luke 11:11-13
Today in our
series: the topic of “It’s OK to … but …” 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.
Luke 24:36-43 James 1:6-8 Hebrews 11:1-2 Romans 4:1-3, 23-25; 5:1
We continue our sermon series,
with the topic of “It’s OK to … but …” 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!
Romans 12:15 Psalm 34:18 Isaiah 53:1-5 John 11:28-44 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
Today we begin our new sermon series,
with the topic of “It’s OK to … but …” 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?
Mark 11:15-17 Ephesians 4:25-27 James 1:19-20
Some of you say, “We can do whatever we want to!” But I tell you that not everything may be good or helpful. We should think about others and not about ourselves…
When you eat or drink or do anything else, always do it to honor God…
I always try to please others instead of myself, in the hope that many of them will be saved.
1 Corinthians 10:23-24, 31, 33 (CEV)
Are Christians really free? What does that mean for how we can and should act? How do our emotions play into our freedoms and actions?
These tough questions play out for us every day in the decisions we make.
More specifically, there are many areas of our lives that get ignored, glossed over,
over emphasized, or vandalized – and that shouldn’t be!
In our new sermon series,
we are going to take a look at some of the important and practical issues every Christian faces and see what they mean for us as followers of Jesus. “It’s OK to … but …”,
The topics we will cover are,
“It’s OK to … but …”
Be Angry Grieve Doubt Be Hurt Have Sex Drink Alcohol Be a Democrat/Republican
Join us each week – in person or
online! – as we explore these important areas of freedom and duty!
Starting on Sunday, April 19 (the Sunday after Easter), we will begin a new sermon series, “God’s Promises,” covering the topics:
These are all pertinent to the strange and challenging times in which we currently find ourselves.
Sunday, September 1, 2019, we will begin a new sermon series: “GOD’S (SECRET?) AGENT: Caretakers, Entrusted by God.”
We will look at what “agents”
are, what we are to care for, how we are to care for them, why, and for whom. We will look at what it means to be trusted – and the responsibility (and forgiveness!) that comes from it.
We’re covering the commandment on adultery on
Sunday, July 28. As such we will be discussing some more mature topics, including sex, lust, and pornography.
Parents are advised to decide on their child’s attendance and participation likewise.
From June 16 through August 25, we will be going through
“The 10 Commandments and the Greatest Commandment.”
There is a lot there that doesn’t fit with people’s memories or assumptions; like basis for why they were given, what they mean, how there are different numberings of them, and more!
You will grow in your faith and dedication to the Lord in this series – and learn in the process!
