CHOOSE YOUR MARRIAGE

Ephesians 5:15 (NIV)

15 Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, 16 making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. 17 Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is. 18 Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled…

OUR GREATEST NEED

This Sunday we’ll explore a terrific story that most of you heard as a child. It is the story of the paralyzed man whose friends bring him to Jesus in Luke 5, beginning at verse 17. One of the truths we will explore is that before Jesus heals the man, he forgives him of his…

SMALL CHURCH

Sometimes what we call a “small church” isn’t because of the numbers, but of the perspective of the church in our minds. Anytime we consider the church to be simply a group of Christian people, that is too small. The Church is God’s creation, with Christ as it’s cornerstone. If churches remembered that, then God’s…

AN EXTRAORDINARY CALL TO WE ORDINARY CHRISTIANS

Romans 1:18-23, Romans 10

In our message this Sunday, we will look at both the call Jesus gives us to go to the world and the world He sends us to go to. Both “go’s” are important as we are called to be assertive and not just responsive. We are to actively seek opportunity, while…

what is he doing and where is he going?

  Sometimes I reminisce about where God brought me from and where He has brought me to.  I like what He’s done in and with my life thus far.  But sometimes I may reminisce too much about the wonderful things of the past and forget that God is still moving forward.  As long as I…

Our Little, his much

What do you do when company unexpectedly comes at supper time? Well, in this week’s message Jesus has a crowd show up to witness His healing and hear what He has to say. Evening comes and they’re all hungry and they’re out in the country. As they check to see what people have to share,…

Ordinary people – son of encouragement

Our new series is entitled: GOD USES ORDINARY PEOPLE. If He only used superstars, most of us would be left out in the cold. The amazing thing is that He uses people just like you and me when we’re willing to do as He commands. No matter how small our “all” is, God can do…

The Three M’S of a Shepherd Dad

I Peter 5:2 Be shepherds of God’s flock that is under your care, watching over them—not because you must, but because you are willing, as God wants you to be; not pursuing dishonest gain, but eager to serve; 3 not lording it over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock. 4 And…

LOVE GOD… LOVE OTHERS

Matthew 22:35 One of them, an expert in the law, tested him (Jesus) with this question: 36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” 37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and greatest…
